Waiting on Wednesday: Truthwitch

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
Pub. Date: January 5, 2016


Goodreads says, "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."
Guys, there's so, so much buzz and hype for this book that I am a little hesitant getting my hopes up, but I love the synopsis.  It seems like a really promising YA fantasy. What do you guys think?

  3. I'm with you Christina, I'm hoping this one is hugely deserving of the hype and turns out to be as amazing as I want it to be, but I'm a touch wary. YA Fantasy is my very favorite though, so fingers crossed!!!
