TruthwitcheBook - 2016
On a continent ruled by three empires, everyone is born with a "witchery," a magical skill that sets them apart from others. Now, as the Twenty Year Truce in a centuries long war is about to end, the balance of power-and the failing health of all magic-will fall on the shoulders of a mythical pair called the Cahr Awen.
The biggest thing on Safi and Noelle's minds is saving money for their planned future in the Hundred Isles. Noelle, a Threadwitch, can see the emotional Threads binding the world. Safi, on the other hand, is a Truthwitch-she always knows when a person is telling a lie. A powerful magic like that is something people would kill to have on their side-or to keep off their enemy's side-and so Safi cannot even admit what she truly is.
With the help of the cunning Prince Merik (a Windwitch and privateer) and the hindrance of a Bloodwitch bent on revenge, the friends must rise above their doubts and fight to learn who they are and what they are made of, if they are going to stay alive and preserve the balance of their world.
"An instant new classic."--Sarah J. Maas, New York Times bestselling author of Throne of Glass , on Susan Dennard's Truthwitch

SummaryAdd a Summary
Safiya was born and raised to be a noblewoman but desires nothing more than to be free of responsibilities. She has kept her truthwitch abilities a secret knowing that she could either become a pawn in political schemes or be killed to prevent others from access to her power. Her Threadsister and closest friend, Iseult, is a threadwitch who can see people’s emotional ties. Bound by friendship and trained for battle Safiya and Iseult find themselves thrust into the middle of plans that could destroy a 20 year truce and which would plunge their world into greater darkness than the Great War. Pursued by a bloodwitch assassin, an emperor’s agent, and leaders seeking Safiya’s powers the two flee for safety on the ship of a prince motivated by a desperate desire to save his land and his people from suffering. Along the way they face countless challenges, discover the seeds of romance and learn the devastating impact of the Great War all the while unaware that they may be the long awaited hope that could bring healing to their world.
