The brilliantly imagined coming-of-age fantasy series, Witchlands, continues with Bloodwitch.
'Susan Dennard has worldbuilding after my own heart. It’s so good it’s intimidating' – Victoria Aveyard, author of Red Queen.
Here, loyalties will be tested as never before . . .
The Bloodwitch Aeduan and Iseult the Threadwitch race for safety, desperate to evade the Raider King. His attempts to subdue the Witchlands are gaining momentum, as his forces sow terror in the mountains, slaughtering innocents. Despite differing goals, Aeduan and Iseult have grown to trust one another in the fight to survive. Yet trust is a tenuous bond . . .
When Merik sacrifices himself to save his friends, he’s captured by the Fury. However, Merik isn’t one to give up easily, and he’ll do whatever it takes to protect those he loves. Then, in Marstok, Safi the Truthwitch is helping their empress uncover a rebellion. But those implicated are killed and Safi becomes desperate for freedom.
Perhaps if Safi and Iseult were united, their powers could bring peace. However, chaos is not easily tamed and war has come once more to the Witchlands. Fate’s knife will come for them all, and the Bloodwitch Aeduan can no longer hide from his past.
Bloodwitch is the third book in the Witchlands fantasy series, following Truthwitch and Windwitch. Continue the adventure with Witchshadow.
'Epic fantasy, epic adventure, epic friendship' – Kate Elliot on Truthwitch
The Witchlands series by Susan Dennard is a coming-of-age adventure set in a brilliantly-imagined fantasy world – perfect for fans of Robin Hobb or Trudi Canavan. On a continent ruled by three empires, some are born with a ‘witchery,’ a magical skill that sets them apart from others. Truthwitch introduces Safi, who has the gift to discern the truth from lies – a powerful magic that many would kill to have on their side, so Safi must keep it hidden at all costs. Yet she and her best friend Iseult soon find themselves at the heart of a struggle that could change the fate of their world . . .
‘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
‘Truthwitch is an instant new classic . . . its fierce and vibrant world, richly-drawn characters, and dazzling intrigue harkens to the best of Megan Whalen Turner, Robin Hobb, and Jacqueline Carey . . . Do not miss out!’ Sarah J. Maas
