Publisher's Summary

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 among 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.

Amazing story, not my favorite voice acting

I loved the story, but the voice actor's accents weren't my favorite. It felt like an awkward combination of middle eastern and Russian. It also bugged me that the narrator's voice is so "normal" sounding compared to everyone else's accents. I wish she either always had the accent or never did. The flip flipping was a little distracting.

As for the story itself, it was wonderfully written and draws you in. It drops you into the world and you learn more as the story develops. I can't wait to learn more about the magic of the world and to meet other types of witches. I literally just finished that book and I'm itching for more. I need it! This will definitely be a read again for me, but maybe with a physical copy. I think I'll enjoy it more that way.

A great book.

Although I read some comments saying that the book was jumbled and didn't offer at least a chapter of back story to explain the world. If you're smarter than these people and don't wish to have the entire plot and background thrown at you in the first two chapters, then you'll like this book because it does a great job at leading you into the world and explaining it's self throughout the book in a way that keeps it entertaining. I'm definitely going to get the new book when it comes out. Also if you don't like fantasy YA novels then I don't recommend reading this, but if you are into it or want to try it out, then this isn't a bad place to start but I'd recommend the 'Throne of Glass' series.

weird female voices

I really enjoyed the book story not exactly what you'd expect so was pleased with that. I really like the softness of the narrators voice but it took a while to enjoy her female voices but it's worth it to keep going as you do slowly get used to it.
I hope the next book is out soon 😊

The Voice

I couldn't listen to this book. The reader is horrible and the quality is poor, I will purchase the book to get the story.

Brilliant book - it gets better

I really didn't like this audio book at first because it was difficult to distinguish who was speaking out of Iseult and Safiya. But that problem dissolved after the first few chapters after the girls separated and more characters were introduced. Definitely worth sticking to it. I love the way Cassandra Campbell does the accents, although I feel that the girls voices are too high. And of course the storyline was brilliant, I recommend for anyone who love fantasy books
