Truthwitch large coverTitle: Truthwitch
Author: Susan Dennard
Publisher: Tor Teen
Publication Date: January 5, 2016

Summary (from Goodreads):

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.

Amazon “Book

Truthwitch Teaser

“Last night had hardly been the first time Safi had bet all of her—and Iseult’s—savings on a card game. It wasn’t if she ever lost, for as the saying went, You can’t trick a Truthwitch.”

Interview with Susan Dennard

Olivia @ The Candid Cover:
I recently read on your blog that you lived in my home country, Canada. What can you tell us about your experiences in Canada? 

Susan Dennard:
I
LOVED Canada! Oh my gosh, Canadians are the nicest people of all time. Seriously. And I was lucky to get to travel some while I was there–from Toronto to Ottawa to Montreal. (And Nunavut too for my research!) I didn’t get to go out west, though, so that’s on my travel-bucket-list still!! 😀
