TruthwitchBook - 2016
On a continent ruled by three empires, some are born with a 'witchery,' a magical skill that sets them apart from others. Safiya is a Truthwitch, able to discern truth from lie. Iseult is a Threadwitch, seeing the invisible ties that bind and entangle the lives around her-- but not those that touch her own heart. With the help of Prince Merik, a Windwitch-- and the hindrance of a Bloodwitch bent on revenge-- the friends must fight emperors, princes, and mercenaries alike, who will stop at nothing to get their hands on a Truthwitch.

"Most people wanted to escape. Get out of their heads. Out of their lives. Stories are the easiest way to do that."
"I’ll strip with you,” Safi offered, grabbing for her shirttails. “If anyone shows up”—the shirt slid over her face, muffled her words—“I’ll dance around and distract them."
"It wasn’t freedom she wanted. It was belief in something—a prize big enough to run for and to fight for and to keep on reaching toward no matter what."
SummaryAdd a Summary
Safiya was born and raised to be a noblewoman but desires nothing more than to be free of responsibilities. She has kept her truthwitch abilities a secret knowing that she could either become a pawn in political schemes or be killed to prevent others from access to her power. Her Threadsister and closest friend, Iseult, is a threadwitch who can see people’s emotional ties. Bound by friendship and trained for battle Safiya and Iseult find themselves thrust into the middle of plans that could destroy a 20 year truce and which would plunge their world into greater darkness than the Great War. Pursued by a bloodwitch assassin, an emperor’s agent, and leaders seeking Safiya’s powers the two flee for safety on the ship of a prince motivated by a desperate desire to save his land and his people from suffering. Along the way they face countless challenges, discover the seeds of romance and learn the devastating impact of the Great War all the while unaware that they may be the long awaited hope that could bring healing to their world.
