Book Review


There are many types of magic in the Witchlands, and while the continent has been largely divided into three major countries, not all people, countries, or magics are created equally. Safiya is a Truthwitch, a secret only a select few know, hoping to not be used by the empire as a pawn in schemes. Her thread-sister, Iseult, is a Threadwitch, someone who can see the invisible ties and bonds around others’ hearts. When Safi’s power is found out and the girls are fought over by the empires, they are faced with the possibility of losing each other for the first time in years, questioning themselves and their place in the world, and the consequence of the broken peace the lands have known for nineteen years.
