Truthwitch | Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine where I discuss the upcoming releases that I'm most excited for. 

Title: Trutwitch (The Witchlanders #1)
Author: Susan Dennard
Published: January 5th 2016 by Tor Teen

Goodreads summary: 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 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.


I read Dennard's Something Strange and Deadly trilogy last month and I loved every single part of it. I laughed. I cried. I was scared. This trilogy made me feel everything and I was so sad it was over (I read the three books in five days during school time). But, well, there is Truthwitch. I have high hopes, because Susan Dennard is an amazing writer. From the #ClanChat, we saw that her world was really complex and seemed amazing. I read the first chapter online and it will be quite a ride! It seemed full of adventures, friendships, and kick-ass female characters! Also, the Bloodwitch was quite scary...

Are you excited about this book? Don't lie because who wouldn't?


  1. This book is getting all kinds of great promo! I hope to start this one soon, great pick this week Lucie!

    1. Thanks! :) You should also try her first series if you haven't, it's about zombies, but it's not gross. The world is fantastic and makes the reader travels a lot and the romance is great and painful at the same time, ha-ha.

  2. I absolutely LOVED this book! I reviewed it fairly recently, and shared a swoony excerpt as well. I hope you enjoy this book when you read it!

    Have a fabulous week, Lucie. :)

    Check out my WoW post!

    1. Awww I'm so jealous and happy that you got to read it! This book will be out next month anyway so I don't have THAT MUCH to wait! :)
