Susan Dennard returns with a follow up to New York Times bestselling novel Truthwitch.
After an explosion destroys his ship, the world believes Prince Merik, Windwitch, is dead. Scarred yet alive, Merik is determined to prove his sister’s treachery. Upon reaching the royal capital, crowded with refugees, he haunts the streets, fighting for the weak—which leads to whispers of a disfigured demigod, the Fury, who brings justice to the oppressed.
When the Bloodwitch Aeduan discovers a bounty on Iseult, he makes sure to be the first to find her—yet in a surprise twist, Iseult offers him a deal. She will return money stolen from him, if he locates Safi. Now they must work together to cross the Witchlands, while constantly wondering, who will betray whom first?
After a surprise attack and shipwreck, Safi and the Empress of Marstok barely escape with their lives. Alone in a land of pirates, every moment balances on a knife’s edge—especially when the pirates’ next move could unleash war upon the Witchlands.
Sometimes our enemies are also our only allies...

This is one of the novels that you almost need a chart to keep track of what going on with who. It was easier to follow for me at least as an audio book as the narrator gave you a different voice to listen to so you could tell where you where at in the story. It a second book so it takes a bit for things to progress with the multiple characters. I think it sets us up well for the next book which is a bridge book between this one and the bloodwitch book. With all the mysterious that are opened the series has lot of places to go so we shall see what develops with Sightwitch and then Bloodwitch.
About Cassandra Campbell
As Cassandra Campbell has said, “A good audiobook narrator is somebody who can get out of the way and let the story be the primary thing.” And no one embodies this more than Campbell herself, who has hundreds of audiobooks credits to her name and delivers each one with refreshing clarity and honesty. For her efforts, she’s been decorated with multiple Audie Awards, Earphones Awards, the prestigious Odyssey Award, among numerous other honors.
When it comes to her repertoire, no one is a more versatile narrator than Cassandra Campbell. She’s the voice of some of the most interesting thrillers of the past decade, including Everything I Never Told You, Bird Box, and Dark Places, and has also narrated so many inspiring nonfiction stories about strong women, such as The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, The Girls of Atomic City, and Orange is the New Black. She has also performed in some of the best ensemble casts of all time, as in Kathryn Stockett’s The Help, which set a new bar for audiobook artistry when it was released in 2009.
Campbell has always been an avid reader and has loved reading aloud; she recalls making her siblings listen to her read James and the Giant Peach and Grimm’s Fairy Tales when they were in elementary school. She didn’t officially get into audiobook narration until much later, though, when she was doing commercial voice-overs and a friend connected her with Books on Tape. Cassandra Campbell loves the opportunity to tell stories and to be part of a tradition that goes all the way back to the Homeric epic.
While she’s done some stage acting, audiobooks have become the center of Cassandra Campbell’s performing career. In recent years she’s also ventured into success with audiobook directing, opting for a collaborative style that allows for an organic, intimate performance. She’s even worn the hat of both director and narrator on a single title in Dark Places by Gillian Flynn. “That was a big journey for me,” she says.
