Truthwitch by Susan Dennard

 Truthwitch (The Witchlands #1) by Susan Dennard.  Published Jan 5, 2016 by Tor Teen.  $10.99 CDN Kindle edition.

In a continent on the edge of war, two witches hold its fate in their hands.

Young witches Safiya and Iseult have a habit of finding trouble. After clashing with a powerful Guildmaster and his ruthless Bloodwitch bodyguard, the friends are forced to flee their home.

Safi must avoid capture at all costs as she’s a rare Truthwitch, able to discern truth from lies. 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. (Goodreads excerpt)

What to say?  OMG I love this series!  So refreshingly real and captivating.  I was sucked in right from the start.  It is intense, emotional, dramatic and … real.  It is not your typical book and I will admit that I am a big fan of anything to do with witches and magic so already I knew this was going to be a book for me.  I am extremely glad that I didn’t have to wait for the next book since I only just found this series.  I instantly downloaded the next one and am like gimme gimme gimme more please *sigh.

I am also a huge fan of kick ass heroines who can do it on their own.  This book gives us two!  And before you start thinking that I don’t like romance..lol  I am sucker for that as well.  And this has that too!  OMG my editor is going to lose her mind with all of the exclamation points in this blog…lol  I just can’t help it. I love LOVE love this book and the series.

5 stars for me!  Obviously J

My Teaser:

Blood on the floor.

It weeps sideways, pooling in a moonbeam before the gentle roll of the ship sends it trickling back the other way.
