Safiya is a Truthwitch, able to discern truth from lie. It is a powerful magic that many would kill to have on their side, especially amongst the nobility to which Safi was born.
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.
And now the first volume of their story, Truthwitch, is #4 on the Young Adult Hardcover New York Times bestseller list! Congratulations to Susan Dennard and Tor Teen/Starscape on the debut, who were just informed of the placement for this initial novel in Dennard’s Witchlands series. (The list on the NYT site will reflect this in a few days.) You can read the first chapter for free here. It is, in the words of the author herself, kind of a cross between “Avatar: The Last Airbender meets Sabriel.”
