Truthwitch: A Witchlands Novel by Susan Dennard 

Standard

Witches, elemental powers, fierce battles, allies, enemies, truth, lies, epic journeys, and, oh!, so much more! 

Safiya is a Witch. A Truthwitch. She can tell a lie from a truth. Iseult is a Threadwitch. She can see the threadties that bind and threads that entangle lives together. 

In this world, Magic is bountiful. Witches of all Magicks are sought after for good and for evil. But this world is also cursed as the Wells that hold the Magic are dying or have been dead for too long. Warring countries try to survive without war, but the peace treaty that held them all at bay is coming to an end. 

This first instalment of Susan Dennard’s epic fantasy of The Witchlands was, simply put, Fantastic! The world building is wonderful, the characters of Safi, Iseult, Merik, heck, all the characters are so richly drawn you feel something for each and every one. Even lesser characters with fleeting appearances leave their impression. 

The book starts slowly but builds to such a wonderful, epic story you will be reaching for the next instalment. Friendship and the ties that bind, survival and the lengths some will go, and honour and the devotion to vows made are the cornerstones of this book. It is absolutely a must read!

Freeks by Amanda Hocking

Standard

Available now for preorder. In-store January 3, 2017. 

As soon as this book was announced I was so excited! A big Thank You to St. Martins Press and Indigo for the ARC. I always credit Amanda Hocking as the reason I began reading YA. I stumbled upon her Trylle trilogy when she first self-published it and fell deeply under her spell. With a deft pen and fearless imagination Hocking has the ability to draw you into her world. Freeks is no exception. 

Mara is a carny. She travels the country with her Mom and the rest of her carnival family bringing fun and sights of wonder to the masses. But this carnival is special. The “acts” are not just acts. The wonders that each carnival sideshow offers are real. Levitations and pyrotechnics, and the fortunes told, are real. The members of this carnival have special powers. All but Mara. Mara just wants to be normal and live in a house. Her Winnebago has been home for as long as she can remember but when she meets Gabe, Mara has a glimpse of what a home could be. But something in the small town of Caudry is amiss. When members of her carnival family are brutally attacked and one goes missing, Mara and her family must decide whether to leave without being paid or stay and fight whatever otherworldly force is trying to kill them all.

The Outliers by Kimberly McCreight 

Standard


The Outliers by Kimberly McCreight

Wylie receives a frantic text message from estranged best friend, Cassie pleading for help. But Wylie has her own issues. Slight agoraphobia, major anxiety, and depression over the loss of her mother. With the coaxing and help of Cassie’s boyfriend, Wylie sets out on a road trip that will change her life forever. 

This first in Kimberly McCreight’s new series, is a fast-paced, mystery-thriller that had me wondering what and who The Outliers were. So, I’ll not spoil it for you. McCreight sets the stage for an epic story in this first book. While I did find the beginning a little slow to take off for me I absolutely enjoyed where she took the story and her writing is fabulous. Highly recommended for lovers of a good thriller. But one warning: CLIFFHANGER!

Enjoy!
