Bloodwitch by Susan Dennard

June 11, 2019
Bloodwitch by Susan Dennard

Each of the Witchlands novels emphasises the story of a particular character. Truthwitch was Safi, Windwitch was Merik and Bloodwitch was Aeduan. The moment I found out this was to be 'his' story I was so excited. He's always been my favourite character because I feel he's the most complex. He has so many different allegiances to different clans, people and himself. This book really saw him deciding which was the most important and ultimately find his path.

Whilst the narrative favours his viewpoint we still get to see the other characters we know, we love and often hate to love. After reading Sightwitch I was even more excited to see Ryber in this story and I hope she has more involvement in the following books.

This book gave me everything I wanted and more. You can tell that Sooz is an author that's constantly developing her craft, not just from her talks online but the way each book becomes a little more nuanced in its storytelling. The characters are explored more, the world is explored more and the plot, oh the plot thickens to the nth degree.

A series for any and every fantasy fan. Young and old.

 

I warn you now. Spoilers, spoilers everywhere.

What a book. What a series.

What do I do with myself until the next one? I really don't know.

From start to finish this novel was full paced 100% action. There were so many deaths, I'm now a little scared for my favourites. I didn't anticipate Stix's death at all. That seemed to come out of nowhere and I'm not entirely sure what that means for the next book. I am hopeful for a bit of a romance between Vivia and Vaness. I adored their interactions. They understood each other very well both being female rulers, they knew the pressure the other was under and how they could be usurped at any moment. Often by those closest to each other. Speaking of, I detest Vivia's father. What a bastard. I'm sorry, he is. I was fummming when he took credit for Vivia's work and speech.

What else. Oh of course Safi. Her tense friendship with Vaness was lovely. You could see a mutual respect there. I did not anticipate the rescue/chaos Mathew and Habim caused. What a turn of events and what a reveal. That they set all of this madness that happened to Safi and Iseult in motion. No wonder she was horrified and ran away with Vaness with the help of the Hellbards...including Caden. I'm intrigued to see where their relationship goes.

Merik. What a journey for the Prince. From being Esme's puppet to entering the sleeping mountain with Kullen. That final moment for the two of them broke my heart. It isn't the end but the relief I felt knowing that Kullen was still in there knew no bounds.

I have to talk about these two together. Iseult and Aeduan. I can't say any more than Te Varuje.

This is one of, if not my favourite on going series.
