From New York Times bestseling author Susan Dennard, return to the world fo the Witchlands in Sightwitch, an illustrated companion told through Ryber's journal entries & sketches. From the Twelve Paladins to the Rook Kings, from Eridysi to a broken sword and looking glass, learn how the secrets of the past set the entire series in motion.Sisters with the gift of Sight—Sightwitches, who can see into the future—are of a rare and ancient order. Raised in a secluded convent, they await the invitation of their goddess to enter the depths of the mountain and receive the sacred gift of foretelling.
But for young Ryber Fortiza, that call never comes. As the only sister without Sight, Ryber has devoted herself to the goddess. Surely, if she just works hard enough, she will finally be gifted like everyone else.
Until one day, all Sisters who possess the Sight are summoned into the mountain—and never return. Now Ryber, still Sight-less, is the only one left. Can she, who has spent her life feeling like th weakest, be the one to save her Sisters and the ancient power they protect?
On her journey underground, she encounters a young captain named Kullen Ikray, who has no memory of who he is or how he got there. Together they trek ever deeper, the mountain tunnels filled with mysteries and horrors. And what they find at the end will alter the fate of the Witchlands forever.
Sightwitch is the story of Ryber, who we briefly met in Truthwitch, and now she has a book all her own; what a story, and the audiobook makes it come alive with multiple narrators sharing the story with you. I was drawn in by Ryber’s story, and devotion to what she knows is her path. The determination in this one is strong, and who doesn’t love her companion, The Rook. Yes, the The is essential. What also makes this one that much more interesting is there are illustrations to enhance the story. The detail is phenomenal for a novella that I typically skip as their short, and it often doesn’t a lot to the series. This one is a must, though, before you dive into blood witch.
