Waiting on Wednesday: Windwitch by Susan Dennard

Second book of the Witchlands! Focusing on Merrik this time.

Publication date: January 10th, 2017
Publisher: Tor Teen

Sometimes our enemies become our only allies

The Windwitch Prince Merik is presumed dead, following a lethal explosion. He's left scarred but alive and determined to expose his sister's treachery. Yet on reaching the royal capital, he's shocked to find it crowded with refugees fleeing conflict. Merik haunts the streets, fighting for the weak. This leads to whispers of a disfigured demigod, the Fury, who brings justice to the oppressed.

Hunted by the Cleaved, Iseult is struggling to stay free while she searches for her friend Safi. When the Bloodwitch Aeduan corners Iseult first, she offers him a deal: she'll return what was stolen from him, if he locates the Truthwitch. Yet unknown to Iseult, there's a bounty on her head - and Aeduan intends to claim it.

After a surprise attack and shipwreck, Safi and the Empress of Marstok barely escape with their lives. They find themselves amongst pirates, where a misstep could mean death. And the bandits' next move could unleash war upon the Witchlands.

Continuation of Truthwitch! As per usual we have different opinions on this one. Hannah read it first and she didn't like it that much... I read it not long ago and I thought it wasn't that bad. I enjoyed quite a bit in fact. Maybe it was because I expected the flaws already? I don't know but we always have such different opinions xD

I'm excited to continue reading the series. I hope it gets better and not worse because 2nd books are always scary (ahem second book syndrome). How about you? And Hannah are you continuing as well?

Are you excited about Windwitch?
