Sightwitch; Susan Dennard

Title: Sightwitch (The Witchlands #0.5)
Author: Susan Dennard
Genre: Fantasy; Young Adult
Published: February 13, 2018
Publisher: Tor Teen

Before Safi and Iseult battled a Bloodwitch...
Before Merik returned from the dead…
Ryber Fortiza was a Sightwitch Sister at a secluded convent, waiting to be called by her goddess into the depths of the mountain. There she would receive the gift of foretelling. But when that call never comes, Ryber finds herself the only Sister without the Sight.
Years pass and Ryber’s misfit pain becomes a dull ache, until one day, Sisters who already possess the Sight are summoned into the mountain, never to return. Soon enough, Ryber is the only Sister left. Now, it is up to her to save her Sisters, though she does not have the Sight—and though she does not know what might await her inside the mountain.
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, the two journey ever deeper in search of answers, their road filled with horrors, and what they find at the end of that road will alter the fate of the Witchlands forever.
Set a year before Truthwitch, Sightwitch is a companion novella that also serves as a set up to Bloodwitch, as well as an expansion of the Witchlands world.


Hello Fellow Readers!

I will say I really loved this book. Not only did it give more insight into the Witchlands world, but it also gave us Ryber who I really hope has a larger part to play in the series now. I feel like until now the Witchlands had a small story to tell but with the addition of Sightwitch the story is gaining momentum and stories are starting to make more sense. 

Ryber is great, I love how she was so strict, but eventually through her progress of trying to save her Threadfamily so learns to bend and break rules. The Rook was by far my favorite character (despite being a bird) and the illustrations were great, and with the side notes added a dimension that I didn't know I was missing until now. 

I know that they won't include that in the next books but it doesn't mean I can't enjoy them.
