What is it about? (Summary from GoodReads)
Loyalties will be tested as never
The Raider King’s plans to claim the Witchlands are under way. Now, his forces sow terror in the mountains, slaughtering innocents. After finding the slain, Aeduan and Iseult race for safety. And despite differing goals, they’ve grown to trust one another in the fight to survive. Yet the Bloodwitch keeps a secret that could change everything . . .
When Merik sacrifices himself to save his friends, he is captured by the Fury. However, Merik isn’t one to give up easily, and he’ll do whatever it takes to save those he loves. And in Marstok, Safi the Truthwitch agrees to help the empress uncover a rebellion. But those implicated are killed and Safi becomes desperate for freedom.
War has come once more to the Witchlands. Perhaps if Safi and Iseult were united, their powers could bring peace. But chaos is not easily tamed.
I just love her writing so much! It reads so easily, and I just flew through the story!
Basically the only ‘negative’ thing I have to say about this one is that the characters were not together for most of the book, and I really like them together. But based on the ending, I’m very excited for the fourth book!
I love how we got to learn more about Aeduan in this book! Also the development between him and Iseult is the best! I heard that the fourth book will be Iseult’s book, so I can’t wait to so even more from them! Besides them I also really loved Safi and Vaness story and Vivia’s, since those went more into the political part of the world, which was just great!
This book has so many perspectives, which generally can be very confusing, but it works so well for this one!
Reviewing a third book in a series is so hard without spoiling anything.. Basically, this is one of my favourite series, so please pick it up!
