This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
On a continent ruled by three empires, everyone is born with a "witchery," a magical skill that sets them apart from others. Now, as the Twenty Year Truce in a centuries long war is about to end, the balance of power-and the failing health of all magic-will fall on the shoulders of a mythical pair called the Cahr Awen.
The biggest thing on Safi and Noelle's minds is saving money for their planned future in the Hundred Isles. Noelle, a Threadwitch, can see the emotional Threads binding the world. Safi, on the other hand, is a Truthwitch-she always knows when a person is telling a lie. A powerful magic like that is something people would kill to have on their side-or to keep off their enemy's side-and so Safi cannot even admit what she truly is.
With the help of the cunning Prince Merik (a Windwitch and privateer) and the hindrance of a Bloodwitch bent on revenge, the friends must rise above their doubts and fight to learn who they are and what they are made of, if they are going to stay alive and preserve the balance of their world.
"An instant new classic."--Sarah J. Maas, New York Times bestselling author of Throne of Glass, on Susan Dennard's Truthwitch

This was the best book ever!! It is perfect for a teen like myself. It was interesting and very well written. This book is a ten!! I can't wait to read book two!!!!!
The characters, the world, the writing, and the story. All magnificent. This is one to savor. Don't miss it.
New favorite book...EVER
This book is so good! So much adventure and the characters are all so awesome! The magic system could've been a little more fleshed out in the beginning but it was pretty self explanatory. I LOVED all of the characters and this story was unlike any other YA fantasy I have read! If you are thinking about buying this just do it, you won't regret it!
