This week’s book: Windwitch by Susan Dennard
Author: Susan Dennard
Publisher: Tor Teen
Publication Date: January 10, 2017
Sometimes our enemies are also our only allies…
After an explosion destroys his ship, the world believes Prince Merik, Windwitch, is dead. Scarred yet alive, Merik is determined to prove his sister’s treachery. Upon reaching the royal capital, crowded with refugees, he haunts the streets, fighting for the weak—which leads to whispers of a disfigured demigod, the Fury, who brings justice to the oppressed.
When the Bloodwitch Aeduan discovers a bounty on Iseult, he makes sure to be the first to find her—yet in a surprise twist, Iseult offers him a deal. She will return money stolen from him, if he locates Safi. Now they must work together to cross the Witchlands, while constantly wondering, who will betray whom first?
After a surprise attack and shipwreck, Safi and the Empress of Marstok barely escape with their lives. Alone in a land of pirates, every moment balances on a knife’s edge—especially when the pirates’ next move could unleash war upon the Witchlands.
I actually just received an advanced copy of Windwitch last night, but I am so over the moon about this series that I still want to share this book with you. I cannot even begin to explain how excited I am to read Book 2 in The Witchlands series! I love so many things about the first book, Truthwitch. The main characters are wonderfully developed and so relatable. There are epic battle scenes and a friendship that is so strong and admirable. I am looking forward to learning more about the rest of the Witchlands and adding some more Merik into my life!
