Many would kill for her magic, so Safi must keep it hidden – lest she be used in the struggle between empires. And Iseult’s true powers are hidden even from herself. In a chance encounter at Court, Safi meets Prince Merik and makes him a reluctant ally. However, his help may not slow down the Bloodwitch now hot on the girls’ heels. All Safi and Iseult want is their freedom, but danger lies ahead. With war coming, treaties breaking and a magical contagion sweeping the land, the friends will have to fight emperors and mercenaries alike. For some will stop at nothing to get their hands on a Truthwitch.Review:
Sometimes the truth can get you killed…
This high intensity, fast paced debut is one to add to your TBR’s right now. I definitely didn’t expect to like this book as much as I did. I was actually considering unhauling it, until my parents chose it for my TBR last month! I’m so glad I didn’t unhaul it!
The plot is extremely fascinating and captivating . It really grabbed my attention right from the start and I fell in love with Safiya and Iseult’s friendship. I loved their characters and the way they look out for each other.
The magic system was also brilliant . I loved the idea of witches being able to control different things and it was brilliantly incorporated into the book.
The bloodwitch is one of my favourite villains (if you can call him that!) and the ending has left me desperately wanting more.
I really enjoyed this book and I am extremely glad I got to read it! Now to read the next books in the series – I can’t wait!
