Review

Truthwitch by Susan Dennard is like a cake stuffed full of your favourite fantasy treats: highway robbery, swordplay, deep friendships, treachery, magic, piracy on the high seas, and romance. If you like any or all of the above in the fantasy tales, this book will delight you (Robin Hobb)

Make room on your all-time favourites shelf: Truthwitch is an instant new classic. It reminded me of why I started reading fantasy in the first place: its fierce and vibrant world, richly-drawn characters, and dazzling intrigue harkens to the best of Megan Whalen Turner, Robin Hobb, and Jacqueline Carey. And while it pays homage to the epic fantasies that have come before it, it also lays the foundation for a bright new chapter in the genre...Do not miss out! (Sarah J. Maas)

Featuring vibrant characters and an innovative system of magic, Susan Dennard's Truthwitch is a fast-paced adventure and a wonderful tribute to the power of the binding ties of friendship (Jacqueline Carey)

Truthwitch has all of the elements I savour - a richly imagined magical world, ruthless politics, steamy romance, and characters who grab you and won't let go (Cinda Williams Chima)

Original review found at my blog 'Wandered Souls'

Okay, so I had heard a lot of mixed reviews about this book so was really unsure what to expect. Some people love it and some hate it- it seems to be the marmite of the YA Fantasy world. I know there was a massive hype for this book when it first came out but somehow I missed that so I didn't have any prejudgements of the book itself which is always a good sign. But I was hoping it was going to be good.

The plot follows two witches, Safi who is a rare Truthwitch and Iseult who is Threadwitch meaning she can see others emotions/feelings and their connection to the world. So basically the coolest witch. Can you tell I am biased? Safi and Iseult are both Threadsisters and I found it interesting because Safi is much higher in terms of her status whereas Iseult seems to be very low. The book follows them being chased by various bad guys around a world which seems very medieval. You can tell this book is meant to be a set up for a series for sure but it also does a great job of that.

At first I found it really hard to get around the world building because there seemed to be a lot of words but not a lot of explanation. You really are shoved at the forefront of all the action as a reader. But I really did love this world! I just had to give it some time. I think this is because everything is very unclear to begin with such as the types of witches, who Safi and Iseult actually are and an impending war (I still don't know how it began).

However, I think which really made the novel was after the first 200 pages everything really started to come together and when Safi and Iseult are both separated there is real development within their characters.

Considering how little happens, this book is long. I'm not even sure what is written about because you aren't told very much about how the magic works, how the world works, or the characters. I get that obviously the two girls are special... But the book didn't tell me why. I guess it will do in future books but I'm not really interested enough in the characters or where the story could go.
I liked Prince Merick for his love for his country and the people, but I didn't think it was possible for a romance to be slow burn and also instant at the same time. Wow.

The world building is overly complicated, and as nothing is properly explained, it quickly becomes very confusing, and although the book is fast paced - lots happens - there is no discernible plot. The two main characters lurch from disaster to disaster with no real explanation of what is going on, and the magic seems to be governed by whatever the author needed it to do at the time rather than any consistent rules. Sadly, despite the hype, it isn't actually very good.

As much a I wanted to like this book, I'm afraid the writing style really wasn't my cup of tea. It contains sentences such as:

'"Where to?" Safi asked, knowing her Threadsister had a route spinning behind her eyes'

'Iseult tossed the black wool scarf to Safi, who swooped it from the air'

...and these are just two examples (of many) from the first couple of chapters. I can't decide whether or not these sentences are part of a legitimate writing style, or just complete nonsense. If you've read the above and don't see anything wrong, then this book might be for you, since the characters are well-rounded and likeable and the world the story is set in is rich and vibrant.

This book is classic fantasy, but at the same time, rises above the stereotypes into something fresh and modern. At its heart is friendship, and while love is part of the story, the reader is left with no doubt that it is that relationship between friends that has the most meaning. Friendship, then duty, then love.

This is not the type of fantasy to constantly challenge you but what it offers is fun and action and a life affirming story that will leave you smiling. It's magical in every sense of the word.

Started thinking this wasn't a good purchase. The two main characters were immediately thrust into danger before I even had a chance to care.
By the end I was invested enough to buy the second book.

Requested a refund after a week of trying to read this. It's not a bad book, just incredibly simple wording mixed with some random complicated vocabulary which makes it really difficult to understand most of the time.
Not too sure I'd even recommend it for a child to rwad to be honest.

It has nice ideas though.
