Did you know there is only 60 days until Truthwitch is FINALLY out!!! I can’t
believe it, it has been the most excruciating wait ever, with so much excitement and fan-love dedicated to this book! The lovely Liran over at Empress of Books asked a group of us to participate in this Truthwitch Secret Blog tour (cue fangirling) and I was, of course, ecstatic to join–this book you guys, this epic novel, it is so SO worth the wait (the opening chapters are magnetic, you will not be able to put this book down).
In case you aren’t aware of what I’m talking about (where oh where have you been hiding?? And can I get a desk there so I can get some writing done!), this is the synopsis for Truthwitch by the lovely and talented Susan Dennard, and the beautiful UK Cover:
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 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.
Truthwitch characters as you’ve never seen them before…
So many witchlanders have done super amazing blogposts about Truthwitch, and I was wracking my brain about what I could do a little differently… so I thought, you know what? I like the Simpsons, I like Truthwitch, how about a mashup!
Truthwitch characters as they may appear in the Simpsons:
Unfortunately there were not many options for changing up what they were wearing, but you get the picture! (excuse the pun) These were created using the Simpsosmaker.
