Hey all! I’m finally taking the time to share all the lovely and amazing goodies I received in the mail before the holidays got started 🙂 December was a great mail month!!
Today’s Fangirl Friday continues to focus on author signatures in my collection, but this time, I wanted to present something a little different. As I recently attended ALA Annual in Chicago for work, I was able to meet a few authors and snag a few more signatures. I wasn’t able to personally meet very many authors as I was quite busy attending work-related sessions, so many of these were acquired via my husband standing in line since he was there on vacation.
Back in January, I had the opportunity to meet 2 authors that had quickly made their way to the top of my TBR based on the synopsis and premise of their books/series. So, even though I hadn’t read more than a chapter or two of either of their books, I drove a little over 2 hours one way on a work night to meet Susan Dennard and Elise Kova. And I took a friend who had even less knowledge of these two than I did.
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.
