On a continent ruled by three empires, some are born with a "witchery," a magical skill that sets them apart from others. In the Witchlands, there are almost as many types of magic as there are ways to get in trouble--as two desperate young women know all too well. Safiya is a Truthwitch, able to discern truth from lie. It's a powerful magic that many would kill to have on their side, especially amongst the nobility to which Safi was born. So Safi must keep her gift hidden, lest she be used as a pawn in the struggle between empires. Iseult, a Threadwitch, can see the invisible ties that bind and entangle the lives around her--but she cannot see the bonds that touch her own heart. Her unlikely friendship with Safi has taken her from life as an outcast into one of of reckless adventure, where she is a cool, wary balance to Safi's hotheaded impulsiveness. Safi and Iseult just want to be free to live their own lives, but war is coming to the Witchlands. With the help of the cunning Prince Merik (a Windwitch and ship's captain) and the hindrance of a Bloodwitch bent on revenge, the friends must fight emperors, princes, and mercenaries alike, who will stop at nothing to get their hands on a Truthwitch.… (més)

The Twenty Year Truce of the Witchlands is coming to an end and the different empires and countries are jostling for position.

Safi and Iseult are Threadsisters make a living in Veñaza City. Iseult, a Nomatsi whom people are suspicious of, is a Threadwitch which means she can see peoples emotions by the colours of their threads but Safi, a Cartorran domna, is a Truthwitch which means she can tell when people are lying. This makes her magic a valuable commodity and rulers would do anything to control it so she has to keep her magic hidden, especially as there are no other known Truthwitches.

As the story opens, the girls tangle with a Bloodwitch (also the only known of his type - but whose magic is immediately identifiable) who is then able to track them by their scent. In trying to get away from him they have to leave their lives in Veñaza behind but then they get embroiled in politics thanks to Safi's rank. Some people in power are trying to extend the Truce but others are eager to see war recommence.

I'm still a bit confused about the magic in this world and whether everyone has some power or only some people and I also got a bit lost with the concept of Thread families and Heart threads although I think I got the hang of it in the end. I'm usually a proponent of 'show, don't tell' but I could have done with a bit more explanation. I am intrigued by the history of the war and the origin wells which were hinted at; hopefully they will be explained further in the following books.

I found the story enjoyable but a bit bumpy, especially at the beginning when I was a bit lost trying to sort out magic and threads, but it mostly smoothed out towards the end. I will keep reading because I'm curious about the backstory. I'm not sure, though, why Safi's magic should make her a target for the power-hungry especially when a lot of the other magical talents are more destructive or helpful.

Trust the hype for this one guys, it’s worth it. The book was practically flawless in my eyes. Everything is so interface and interesting. There are multiple perspectives and I was won over by all of them. Nothing seemed cliche or irritating. Everything fit and flowed and stood out as an individual even though it was a bigger piece of a whole. From the first page, I knew I’d love Dennard’s writing style. It’s so gritty and atmospheric, it pure gold! I just loved this book so much. ( )

I wanted to like this more than I did. It took me a long time to get into it, I unfortunately did not connect with the characters very well but thought the plot was exciting with some great ideas. I will be continuing on with the series and hope I like it better as I go. ( )

I really wanted to like this book, but I just couldn't finish it. For me, I felt like I was dumped in the middle of a world with no explanation or description of anything. Trying to figure out the different types of witches, or what threads are, was just annoying for me. I felt the plot was too predictable and repetitive. The main characters spent all of their time arriving somewhere only to flee because their enemies were chasing them....over and over again. Ho hum. I just couldn't get into it. I declared this one a DNF and returned it to the library. Just wasn't my cup of tea. On to the next..... ( )
