Windwitch; Susan Dennard

Title: Windwitch (The Witchlands #2)
Author: Susan Dennard
Genre: Fantasy; Young Adult

Publisher: Tor Teen

Sometimes our enemies are also our only allies…
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.


Hello Fellow Readers!

So this took me so long to read. As you can see by my rating that I really enjoyed this book, but I just kept putting it down and it would take a while before I picked it up again. Finally, I decided to force myself to sit down and just read it. I really enjoyed this book, it doesn't pick up directly after the last book but it does catch you up very quickly.

The chapters are like the last book in which they are told from different points of view, this was done very well and despite the somewhat large assembly of characters. There was never a time that I ever felt lost or confused about who was speaking. I will say that I did love other POVs more than others, it wasn't because they were boring or anything like that it was mostly just because some characters (to me) are just more interesting than others. 

I really enjoyed Iseult and Aeduan, I liked them in the first book as well and this just continued my affection for them. Safi was also interesting, so was Marik and Vivia but I just enjoyed Aeduan and Iseult more. I do wish that Dennard would give me more when it comes to the history of the Witchland worlds. I just feel like I am getting trickles of information and while I don't want an expo dump I wish she would share more. 

Other than that it was definitely a great book and I will continue this series
