Review- Truthwitch (The Witchlands #1) by Susan Dennard
I really enjoyed this book. I'm not much of a high fantasy reader and it did take me a little bit to get into, but the book was really fantastic once I settled into the world and the characters. There is so much to this story, love, magic, fantasy, power; it is bursting with story. I think my favorite part about this book was the relationships that the author built and especially in the beginning with the sisters. Although they have powers and can do things that mortals cannot, there was something really relate-able to real life and how sisters / best friends act together. I enjoyed the writing style very much and will definitely be picking up more books by Dennard in the very near future.
I gave this 4 stars only because I found it really difficult to deal with the strange names of the people and places. That took away from the story for me, but really that is just a reading preference of mine, which is why I don't read alot of fantasy books. It does not take anything away from the story. Overall I would definitely recommend this book and I am looking forward to reading more.
