Waiting on Wednesday *114*

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we spotlight an upcoming book release we're especially looking forward to!

Here's what I'm eagerly awaiting this week:

Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
The Witchlands #1
Expected Publication: January 2016 by Tor

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.
Witches. Magic. Friendship. Pirates. Romance. And it's being described as Garth Nix meets Avatar: The Last Airbender?!?!?  OMG.OMG.OMG. There aren't enough words in the English language to express how excited I am about this book.  It seriously seems like it has ALL the elements I gravitate towards in my fantasy reads. I'm ashamed to say I haven't read anything by Dennard yet but I've heard wonderful things and her Something Strange and Deadly series has been on my reading list since they first came out. In any case, Truthwitch sounds like one hell of a place to start!

Are you dying to read this one?
Let me know when you link me up!


  1. LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS :D I haven't seen the cover yet and I LOVE it. So good, must have this!

  2. The cover and the synopis is so perfect! Magic is so needed!
    Waiting on Wednesday

  3. YESSSSSSSSSSSSS MICHELINE!!!!!!! I NEED THIS BOOK IN MY HAND IMMEDIATELY!!!! I really enjoyed her Something Strange and Deadly series and that featured zombies which are definitely NOT my thing, so I have a feeling I'm going to like this series even more:) *flails*

  4. I will totally give this one a try even tho I'm starting to cut back on YA these days. The magic sounds fabulous but I can already smell the love triangle.

  5. LOVE this cover! I've been meaning to read Something Strange and Deadly for a long time, too. Definitely need to add this to the TBR! :D

  6. YES! This one is already on my TBR list and I cannot wait to read it! Great pick. Thanks for stopping by today. Happy reading.
