Truthwitch
Truthwitch: A Witchlands Novel | Susan Dennard
On a continent ruled by three empires, everyone is born with a "witchery," a magical skill that sets them apart from others. Now, as the Twenty Year Truce in a centuries long war is about to end, the balance of power-and the failing health of all magic-will fall on the shoulders of a mythical pair called the Cahr Awen.The biggest thing on Safi and Noelle's minds is saving money for their planned future in the Hundred Isles. Noelle, a Threadwitch, can see the emotional Threads binding the world. Safi, on the other hand, is a Truthwitch-she always knows when a person is telling a lie. A powerful magic like that is something people would kill to have on their side-or to keep off their enemy's side-and so Safi cannot even admit what she truly is.With the help of the cunning Prince Merik (a Windwitch and privateer) and the hindrance of a Bloodwitch bent on revenge, the friends must rise above their doubts and fight to learn who they are and what they are made of, if they are going to stay alive and preserve the balance of their world."An instant new classic."--Sarah J. Maas, New York Times bestselling author of Throne of Glass, on Susan Dennard's Truthwitch

I listened to this in 2 clumps quite far apart from one another. It was kind of weird because maybe I stopped listening initially because it wasn‘t gripping me, but when the time came that I got it out again it was such a relief to sink into a story I knew already and take off from where I‘d left. I ended up really enjoying this ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I love this challenge that @Clwojick created! My first two books have “witch” in the title, even if they couldn‘t be any more different than one another!

It wasn‘t freedom she wanted. It was belief in something—a prize big enough to run for and to fight for and to keep on reaching toward no matter what.

I'm getting prepped for #Jumpstart2023

No goals for me this year but I'm going to work on my #AuldLangSpine picks, whatever gets chosen for #TrappedOnAnIsland and I threw in a couple that I just want to read.

Will I change my choices over the month? More than likely but I've been waiting for the beginning of the year to start these so I'm feeling good about my choices.

Clwojick Great plan! Good luck! ❤️ 1y

Forgot to post a pic before putting this one in the mail 🤦‍♀️ Between work & this horrible cold (not COVID 🙏), I‘ve been in such a fog.

Anyways…I really liked this #LMPBC pick! I enjoyed the characters, the plot, the world…everything really! It was a bit confusing at times, but I think that was because Dennard was doing some real world building & fleshing out the magic system.

This one has been on my TBR.
The beginning was scattered with alternating POV that took a good many chapters to catch on to.
However, the story pulled itself together & I enjoyed the back half.
Some of the magic seemed a little too all powerful for one character.
I enjoyed the magic concept & the world building and want to find out what happens so on to book 2!

4.3⭐️ The book was fast pace and addictive in the beginning. There were some moments that made me stop and go “really”; however, for the most part it was extremely enjoyable.

LazyOwl So glad you enjoyed. I love this series. 3y

This is my second reread through of Truthwitch. I'm completing a reread as I've recently purchased the latest published book.

I love this series, and I'm enjoying reading even more than my 1st time round. The magic system is really cool and I love all the characters with the flaws and the bonds they've formed.

This is definitely a massive favourite fantasy series and I will reread again.

GondorGirl This is definitely my favorite ongoing fantasy series. It's just brilliant! 3y
LazyOwl @GondorGirl it's such an underrated series I think. Have you read Witchshadow? 3y
GondorGirl @LazyOwl Not yet! I'm waiting until I have an entire day free to just read the entire thing. 3y
LazyOwl @GondorGirl That sounds like a great idea. I hope you enjoy your reread as well. I'm currently reading Bloodwitch. Can't wait till Witchshadow but I'm enjoying me reread journey too. 3y

I wish I had read this sooner. I thought the story was unique and the world really interesting. The characters are awesome. There was enough action to keep you on the edge of your seat. I like the romance in it.
Anyways, I highly recommemd this book.

⭐️⭐️⭐️
A fun read over all. Although I forced myself to read it despite my dislike for magical sea creatures, pirates and too much of fighting sequences (it‘s difficult to visualise it). Nice reveals. The only thing that‘s keeping me hooked to this book is the Cahr Awen theme, an ancient prophecy that is coming true for the witchlands world. But The author needs to put a page for word meanings for reference as there r many foreign words.

SO FAR SO GOOD! The only problem with this book is it starts without a start 🤨 not much world building, no fancy intro, no description of how the main characters look, just few stingy lines but one is able to understand the Witchery and the magic and the world as you read along. It‘s an un-glamorous world with grime ridden actors and towns. Those who don‘t care for such things can read this, but it took me sometime to get used to it...

7 chapters in, I‘m confused by how the magic works or how Threads work or if everyone has magic or only some people. It‘s also a bit disconcerting that witches eyes change colour when they‘re practicing magic.

I enjoyed the worldbuilding in this book, and the immersive nature of the fantasy that just throws you into the world with little explanation. The protagonists are interesting and flawed, and the stakes are big enough to make me want to keep reading to find out what the whole legend of the Cahr Awen is all about.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book, much to my surprise.
I don‘t usually read multiple pov‘s because I usually end up disliking one or more of the characters. However, I ended up enjoying all pov‘s. Can‘t wait to read the rest of the series.

I ended up liking this YA fantasy a lot more than I thought I would. Yes, the instalove made me roll my eyes, and yes, there's not an awful lot of substance to the world-building. But it was fast paced with lots of twists and turns which is exactly what I needed during a busy week.

I really enjoyed this book! It‘s a YA, fantasy novel where there are numerous types of witches with different powers. The story follow Safi, who is a truthwitch, and her best friend Iseult, who are being hunted by a bloodwitch. It was slow in the middle but really finished strong! I definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves fantasy, witches and lots of action!

I‘m really bad for starting a series then buying all the subsequent books but not reading them. The Witchlands is one of these. I loved Truthwitch and was so excited to get to Windwitch, then kept pushing it back and pushing it back and now I have Bloodwitch and still haven‘t read it. Anybody else do this?

While this started a little slowly, it really picked up by the end and left me interested in reading the next book. I'd rate it good but not great, but I hear the series develops well.

Overall I'm interested in seeing more development in explaining the politics of this world, since they are critical to the plot, as well as getting a deeper understanding of the magic system.
