Windwitch (A Witchlands Novel) by Susan Dennard
I thought the first book in this series was wonderful, unique, and the world building outstanding. Reading the second book I am so impressed with the writing, I felt I was there. Ms. Dennard has taken the story deeper and each character's role has become very complex. I really enjoyed this book and can’t wait for the next in the series. Happy reading!— Della McNamara
Susan Dennard returns with a follow up to New York Times bestselling novel Truthwitch.
After 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.
Sometimes our enemies are also our only allies…
