The Witchlands, Book 2
Sometimes our enemies are also our only allies…
When an explosion destroys his ship, the world believes Prince Merik, Windwitch, is dead. Scarred yet alive, Merik is determined to prove his sister’s treachery. Upon reaching the royal capital, crowded with refugees, he haunts the streets, fighting for the weak—which leads to whispers of a disfigured demigod, the Fury, who brings justice to the oppressed.
When the Bloodwitch Aeduan discovers a bounty on Iseult, he makes sure to be the first to find her—yet in a surprise twist, Iseult offers him a deal. She will return money stolen from him, if he locates Safi. Now they must work together to cross the Witchlands, while constantly wondering, who will betray whom first? After a surprise attack and shipwreck,
Safi and the Empress of Marstok barely escape with their lives. Alone in a land of pirates, every moment balances on a knife’s edge—especially when the pirates’ next move could unleash war upon the Witchlands.
A world you’ll want to inhabit forever!
…emotionally charged continuation of the Witchlands series…complicated politics and personal relationships [are] full of surprises. Readers will want nothing more than to see Safi and Iseult reunited in the midst of the action and mystery that carries this story at a fast clip.
Dennard is a talented juggler, and readers may gasp for breath from the pace, but she doesn’t let anyone slip through the cracks. She sets scenes so skillfully that the descriptions of the geography become immersive, and the characters continually develop along familiar lines. The plentiful action in this exciting fantasy almost makes it feel like one is in a multiplayer online game.
To me the book as a whole is the perfect sequel to Truthwitch! Our knowledge of The Witchlands grows as we explore new places and we’re introduced to new characters who will entice you. Windwitch is unputdownable and unforgettable it’ll leave you wanting more. It is the perfect blend of action, suspense, heartbreak, shocking and swoon worthy moments. It’ll keep you coming back for more.
