On a continent ruled by three empires, some are born with a “witchery”, a magical skill that sets them apart from othersI've never read anything by Susan Denard and the anticipation is killing me! This cover is giving me a Throne of Glass kind of vibe and brings the excitement level 100% higher. Truthwitch? LIKE WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN?? It makes me so curious as to what the title means.
In the Witchlands, there are almost as many types of magic as there are ways to get in trouble—as two desperate young women know all too well.
Safiya is a Truthwitch, able to discern truth from lie. It’s a powerful magic that many would kill to have on their side, especially amongst the nobility to which Safi was born. So Safi must keep her gift hidden, lest she be used as a pawn in the struggle between empires.
Iseult, a Threadwitch, can see the invisible ties that bind and entangle the lives around her—but she cannot see the bonds that touch her own heart. Her unlikely friendship with Safi has taken her from life as an outcast into one of reckless adventure, where she is a cool, wary balance to Safi’s hotheaded impulsiveness.

The Iron Prince—my nephew—betrayed us all. He killed me. Then, I woke up.
Waking after a month on the brink of death, Ethan Chase is stunned to learn that the Veil that conceals the fey from human sight was temporarily torn away. Although humankind's glimpse of the world of Faery lasted just a brief moment, the human world has been cast into chaos, and the emotion and glamour produced by fear and wonder has renewed the tremendous power of the Forgotten Queen. Now, she is at the forefront of an uprising against the courts of Summer and Winter—a reckoning that will have cataclysmic effects on the Nevernever. Leading the Lady's Forgotten Army is Keirran himself: Ethan's nephew, and the traitor son of the Iron Queen, Meghan Chase.To stop Keirran, Ethan must disobey his sister once again as he and his girlfriend, Kenzie, search for answers long forgotten. In the face of unprecedented evil and unfathomable power, Ethan's enemies must become his allies, and the world of the fey will be changed forevermore.
Do I even need to preface this with anything?!?! I mean....Iron Fey. Julie Kagawa. ETHAN CHASE ON THE COVER :L :L :L wow, just wow. I have been dying for this book ever since I read The Iron Prince. I literally inhale every book in this series as soon as is possible and I just can't wait until Octoer and I can get my hands on this. But tbh, I'm not ready for this to be the last book. Anyone know any news, like if there will be any more to this series/spin-off? I heard this is the last but *fingers crossed* Give me a ray of hope? Maybe? ;)
