Windwitch by Susan Dennard (The Witchlands book 2)
SPOILER ALERT! If you haven’t read the first book in this series, Truthwitch, Stop! I don’t want to ruin the story for you.
“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.” - taken from Goodreads.com
Told in alternating viewpoints from Merik, Safi and Iseult’s separate journeys, fans of this series will be delightfully surprised to see how the story plays out and our favorite characters grow. Although the three are separated most of the book, readers get the opportunity to know everyone on a much more individual level. But that ending sets up what should be a great next book.
The Witchlands series continues with Aeduan’s story, Bloodwitch in 2018. Visit Susan Dennard’s website.Visit the Witchlands’ website.
