I will kill you he went onNo The girl s eyes thinned she pushed herself further upright and the moon streamed over her I d d d She coughed Then wiped her mouth I don t think you will Ah this book I went back and forth on the rating and I do want to say this unlike the other highly anticipated January novel Passenger Truthwitch is a fast paced enjoyable adventure However I know picky fantasy readers will see right through this bookIf you are looking for a light fantasy read with descriptions of dresses balls dancing and an inevitable romance look no further Sometimes that s all I want too There s no denying that this book has a base addictive pull from the opening holdup gone wrong to every dramatic twist turn and action scene after But if you re looking for something stronger fleshed out and complex I think Truthwitch could cause you some eye rollsI ll break it down Characters There are two central female characters Safi and Iseult and only the latter is particularly interesting Safi suffers from a specialness because she is a truthwitch Though whether the other characters know this or not does not affect their tendency to faint fall over themselves or otherwise become obsessed with her whenever she enters the room And uite frankly for the most part she seems to act stupidly putting herself and Iseult in danger because of her reckless and dumb plans Like that time she runs away from the people helping her because who the hell knows Literally her only real talents seem to be making poor decisions and attracting the attention of various princesIseult however is a badass I liked it when the novel s focus moved to her I thought she was interesting less trope y than the special Safi I will also note that I like the emphasis put on female friendship before everything else I was a little disappointed that we didn t get a SafiIseult LGBT romance but I ll settle for the next best thingThe only other interesting character is the villain a blood monk called Aeduan He is probably the greatest reason I am looking forward to the seuel because fascinating multilayered maybe not uite so evil villains are one of my favourite things I hope we get lots of him in the next book World building This should be a short section because there is none I ve heard early critics praising the uniue world but I am confused There are some vague mentions of emperors and place names but very little information is given about these people their history culture politics or anything else The only thing we know is that a 20 year peace treaty is soon coming to an endAlso these witches all live in a world made up of various lands and the collective name of these lands is Witchlands Now I don t want to get all nitpicky over little languagename things but come on witches from the Witchlands Fantastic that s given me a great idea for a book It s about vampires who live in Vampireville Instalove Something had happened between Safi and Merik during their dance Something as powerful as the wind and the music that had gusted around them A shift in the air that preceded a storm Oh hell make it stop Possibly the most eye roll worthy thing of this book is the budding romance between Safi and Merik They dance at a ball and it s obsession at first twirl I believe you can experience lust from dancing with a hot guy or girl I even believe a crush can form from dancing with a hot guy or girl but forgive me if I raise a skeptical eyebrow at something as powerful as the wind LOL get over yourselves already Also Merik has no personality beyond his concerns for the wonderful SafiJust to conclude It seems like a lot of negative but I honestly did enjoy the fast pacing and surprises I for one will be reading the seuel Though I advise you to maybe think twice about this if you like your fantasy with substance than mindless entertainmentBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube Pinterest

I m so very sad to have to admit this but TRUTHWITCH really isn t working for me The world building is hazy therefore I feel confused and frustrated I keep trying to make order of things in my mind and it s exhausting The writing is not horrible but it doesn t flow Many have mentioned fast pacing but I crazily feel like this is super slow because of how much it asks for our undivided attention and uick understanding when nothing is really detailed or explainedDNF at 25% Can I blame the hype I m blaming the hype

review Truthwitch Read Ñ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Å Susan Dennard Susan Dennard Å 5 Download Lp may not slow down the Bloodwitch now hot on the girls' heels All Safi and Iseult want is their freedom but danger lies ahead With war coming treaties breaking and a magical contagion sweeping the land the friends will have to fight emperors and mercenaries alike For some will stop at nothing to get their hands on a Truthwit. No just no This is easily one of the worse fantasy books I ve ever read It does everything so badly it literally embodies everything that can go wrong with the genre Firstly the plot is basic at best The protagonists are being hunted that is all Secondly the world is barely explained there is no sense of history or the possibility that this world could have existed before the events of this book Thirdly the romance is a crappy case of love at first sight Personally I think it should have been excluded in its entirety and the focus been on the friendship between the two girls It was woefully underplayed it was a case of the girls claiming to be attached to each other but never really portraying any realistic behaviour to suggest it I don t think it worked at all It could uite easily have done so but somehow I just didn t feel the sense of attachment it didn t come across in the story I gave up half way through So here s some detail as to why this book ABSOLUTELY sucked 1 Action over plot I love a good chase scene but in this there is scene after scene of the protagonists being chased by their enemies Every time they enter a new location they flee from it Yes they are being hunted but it began to get a little ridiculous It wasn t just the Bloodwitch they were fleeing from Iseult returns home after departing six years previously ten pages later she is chased off by an angry mob The chapter before she ran out of the city after being exposed by another mob Meanwhile Safiya is abducted from a ball in which you guessed it another chase begins So not only do we have multiple chase scenes but we also have them happening simultaneously and back to back I mean seriously Where is the pacing Where is the character development Where is the chance to understand this world or even see it So that leads us on to my next point 2 No world buildingWhere the hell is this place I have no idea about the scale of this world The first part occurs in a city That s about all I know Is it a big city Is it a capital city Where does it stand in relation to the rest of the world I ve already mentioned that Iseult goes back home after a six year separation Her people are hated and are freuent targets of racist attacks They are literally hung on sight Yet for all this hatred their settlement appears just to be outside the city boundaries I mean it couldn t be far away Iseult gets there and back within the course of a day That felt like a bit of a plot whole along with the weird fact that the she s never been attacked before in other parts of the city just seemed like a major oversight And why are they the victims of racism anyway That was never even mentioned in the first half I mean I need to know these things very early on if I m going to carry on reading We also have an Emperor but an Emperor of what The title implies dominion over many lands I don t know if he is merely in charge of the city or the entire Witchlands whatever the hell they are I wonder if they re next door to the Wizardlands or perhaps even the Warlock Empire The name s terrible but that s not overly important What matters is that I have literally no idea about this place Was the Emperor elected Did he receive his title at birth Is he a tyrant or a benevolent ruler The only thing the author has bothered to tell us is that he has sweaty hands sweaty hands Great so what does he actually ruleThere s a vague magic system Its functions are graspable but the details aren t Is everyone born a witch Does everyone have a special magical power Has this always been so Are there other magical gifts There is no sense of history to it or any attempt of defining it There is just cheap action layered upon cheap action Fantasy needs to be than this it needs to than people kicking ass engaging in sarcastic dialogue kicking ass and looking perfect I really could go on this book was terrible And there s only one thing that could make it even worse 3 A Redundant RomanceIt s easy to criticise a book for having a predictable romance though a child reader could spot this coming a mile off It just seems to fall into the standard love trap Safiya dances with a prince They immediately fall in love Oh what a surprise The love they share is apparently as powerful as the wind Well it s as instantaneous as the wind I think it was so so silly and was the ruination of this story The focus should have resided on the strong female friendship the author was attempting to portray There needn t have been a romance to complicate things and allow the book to fall into the most standard of plotlines This was just so unbelievably bad But even when I hate a book I can clearly see that sometimes the book is still from an objective point of view well written I just personally and subjectively dislike it It s just a matter of opinion That s what reading is all about However with this I felt that it was bad on both levels It s a complete shambles in terms of character plot and its world And I detest it because of it It s drivel I honestly think my cat could write a better book Do I need to say that I won t be reading the seuel No I think notFacebook Twitter Insta Academia
