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 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.

4.0 Truthwitch - final thoughts
Not sure if this book is really worth 4 stars, probably more like 3.5 or 3.75 but I decided to round up - mainly because it's has two female protagonists who are best friends, practically sisters really, who are so close no one will turn them against each other. It's a beautiful relationship betwee...

3.5 Truthwitch - Susan Dennard
So I quite enjoyed Truthwitch. It's YA, a fairly typical fantasy story about two young women, Iseult and Safi, who are Threadsisters - essentially very good friends.
