Windwitch, by Susan Dennard

download (1)After an explosion ruins his ship, Prince Merik tries to expose his sister’s treachery while fighting for the weak on the streets of the royal capital. Meanwhile, Aeduan, a Bloodwitch, and Iseult, a Threadwitch, form an unlikely alliance and travel together looking for Safiya, who has been shipwrecked with the Empress of Marstok in a land of pirates and is living every moment balanced on a knife’s edge, trying to keep the pirates from unleashing war upon the Witchlands.

This book was amazing and I loved it!!! I couldn’t stop reading it and I was addicted. Sadly, I couldn’t read this all in one sitting. I loved the characters, plot, and writing style and can’t wait to read Ms. Dennard’s next book, Sightwitch.

I loved Ms. Dennard’s writing style and can’t wait for more of it. Her style was very addictive and I was engrossed in her book from when I read the first page. I loved Ms. Dennard’s amusing dialogue and how well she described the setting. Ms. Dennard described the setting beautifully, and I could imagine myself there, talking with the characters. I loved how Ms. Dennard wrote with humor and an optimistic nature, it was well suited for this book.

The characters were much more relatable in this book then they were in Truthwitch. I related to most of them and hope that they have the best future imaginable, but for that to happen, Safi has to learn to control her tongue. I loved how all of the characters developed over the course of the book and I couldn’t wait to see what other amazing things that they did. I was surprised to find that Aeduan and Viva were my favorite characters in this book. I got to read from Viva’s perspective, which was a huge eye-opener. I can’t wait to see what great things she does in the future.

Windwitch Quotes

All of the side characters were very realistic and relatable as well. I loved the way that they didn’t just talk about the main characters, but about politics and pirates and food. I was very invested in all of their journeys. The side characters were all very talented in their own ways and I loved how diverse they were. I was very curious about the way that Owl instantly connected with Aeduan, unlike most people who panic when they meet him, with or without the robes and red eyes.

The plot was amazing!!! We got perspectives from Viva, Aeduan, Iseult, Safi, and Merik. I loved that quite a lot, especially Viva’s perspective. Viva was a character that I completely changed my opinion about in this book and cannot wait to read more about in Bloodwitch. I was addicted to the plot of Windwitch and I couldn’t wait to get back to reading my favorite challenges. That was my one problem with this book. There were some plots that I liked more than others and just wanted to dive into. This is normal, but it still makes me feel guilty for not loving all of the plots equally.

This book was amazing and I can’t wait to read Bloodwitch and Sightwitch. I highly recommend anything by Susan Dennard and to watch the Truthwitch TV show once it has aired. I got the summary from the Library of Congress. Remember to fill out my survey. You can find the link to it on my About page. Thanks for Reading!!! Have a Great Day!!! -Annalee and Buttons
