Goodreads Description

On a continent ruled by three empires, some are born with a “witchery”, a magical skill that sets them apart from others.

In the Witchlands, there are almost as many types of magic as there are ways to get in trouble—as two desperate young women know all too well.

Safiya is a Truthwitch, able to discern truth from lie. It’s a powerful magic that many would kill to have on their side, especially amongst the nobility to which Safi was born. So Safi must keep her gift hidden, lest she be used as a pawn in the struggle between empires.

Iseult, a Threadwitch, can see the invisible ties that bind and entangle the lives around her—but she cannot see the bonds that touch her own heart. Her unlikely friendship with Safi has taken her from life as an outcast into one of reckless adventure, where she is a cool, wary balance to Safi’s hotheaded impulsiveness.

Safi and Iseult just want to be free to live their own lives, but war is coming to the Witchlands. With the help of the cunning Prince Merik (a Windwitch and ship’s captain) and the hindrance of a Bloodwitch bent on revenge, the friends must fight emperors, princes, and mercenaries alike, who will stop at nothing to get their hands on a Truthwitch.

Why I'm Waiting

I have been hearing some good things about this book so I decided to finally check it out. Once I did I realized it was a book that I would be really excited to check out. There are two friends that just want to live their lives. Of course there is more to it than that. 

I haven't really read any books specifically about witches so I'm really intrigued about them being the focus of this novel/series. I also like that there is a different types of witches instead of just the good and bad witches. I seriously hope I get through my December TBR so I can pick this up not long after it comes out.

Have you heard anything about this book? Are you looking forward to this release?
