This week’s book:
Title: Sightwitch (The Witchlands 0.5)
Author: Susan Dennard
Publisher: Tor Teen
Publication Date: January 23, 2018
Summary (from Goodreads): From the New York Times bestselling author of Windwitch, an illustrated prequel novella set in the Witchlands setting up the forthcoming hotly anticipated Bloodwitch.
Set a year before Truthwitch, Sightwitch follows Ryber Fortiza, the last Sightwitch Sister as she treks deep underground to rescue her missing best friend. While there, she encounters a young Nubrevnan named Kullen Ikray, who has no memory of who he is or how he wound up inside the mountain. As the two journey ever deeper in search of answers, and as they brave one close call after another, a tentative friendship forms between them—one that might one day grow into something more.
Sightwitch is told through Ryber’s journal entries and her sketches, as well as through supplementary materials (such as other journals, pieces of songs, clippings from history books, flashbacks, etc.). Though meant as a companion novella, this story serves as a set up to Bloodwitch as well as an expansion of the world.
I could not be more excited about this book! Ryber is such an interesting character and I just love the whole concept of the novella, as it will contain images. If you are subscribed to Susan’s newsletter, there have been some special sneak peeks of Sightwitch and the illustrations are amazing. I can’t wait to get back into the Witchlands series again!
