SnoopyDoo's Book Reviews

I’m a stay at home mom of two little monsters….  Ummm kids and I love to read and coffee runs through my veins . I read pretty much a little of everything but I tend to like fantasy the most. I blame Sarah J Maas who got me stated into the fantasy genre...but to be honest I read most of everything and it just depends what I’m in the mood for. I also read a lot of YA. Don’t judge ….lol

When I’m not reading I love to spend time with the family of course, I also like to watch TV and love to find new shows to binge. Gaming is another thing I like to do and is easy to get me sucked into a game for hours or even days.  Don’t even get me started on Lego games ……addictive …..lol

So as you can see I’m like all over the place but reading is always the thing that I come back to. It helps me relax and lets me jumps on so many new exciting worlds.

I love to meet new people who share the love for book as I do and in my many years of reading and reviewing I met some truly awesome people. Which honestly is the best part about the book word…..meeting so many new and lovely people.

I’m not in any way a professional reviewer. I just like to read books and share my personal opinion with other book lovers.

Review: Windwitch (The Witchlands #2) by Susan Dennard

Windwitch (The Witchlands) - Susan Dennard

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.

4 ½ ★

 

Another great book in the series. This book was action wise a bit slower but was very character and story driven. But I must admit that even though it was slower on the action site I enjoyed this book a bit more.

The book starts off a couple weeks where we ended with book one, it is called Windwitch and about Merik ,BUT we do get everyone else as well, just like in book one.

We actually meet some new people, and also get a POV of people we heard about but not followed yet.  

Most of the group is split up and scattered throughout the world, some meet and team up and other make new allies.  Some are surprising and I didn’t even think about. Others, not so much. 

The most notable apart were Safi and Iseult. Though I think they handled it better than I thought they would and they were still great, both in their own ways but still thinking of the other.

We learn more about both Safi and Iseult but I say more so about Iseult and her threadwitchery, the history and much more. The same about Safi, but there is only so much we can learn about her magic, its pretty straight forward, though I’m still thinking we learn that there is more to it.

Merik…. Oh boy he was down in the dumps in this book a times, which got him in trouble, but he pulled through and made it . We learn something really shocking and surprising about him towards the end which left me speechless. I liked Cam ….. I thought it was a great addition to the story. Can’t wait to learn more.

We also get Vivia’s POV which I thought was very interesting and want so much more of it, the same goes for Caden…….I hope, we see more of him in the next books but at the same time I hope we are not getting a love triangle situation. Vaness I also liked but never fully trusted and am curious to see where it leads. 

Aeduan , he quickly became one of my favorites and I could not get enough if him, I also liked we get a few , very few glimpses of his humor. I also can’t wait to learn more about his father…..

Owl, came late in the book but I loved and can’t wait to see what that is all about .  

The ending while still left wide open and a semi cliffhanger also had a somewhat peaceful feeling to it. Kind of the calm before the storm type that we all know is brewing

Overall, it was slower but still better than the first. As mentioned it was story and characters driven and since I love this crew so much I didn’t mind a bit.

I rate this book 4 ½ ★

Review: Truthwitch (The Witchlands #1) by Susan Dennard

Truthwitch - Susan Dennard

 

On a continent ruled by three empires, some are born with a “witchery”, a magical skill that sets them apart from others.

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.

Safi and Iseult just want to be free to live their own lives, but war is coming to the Witchlands. With the help of the cunning Prince Merik (a Windwitch and ship’s captain) 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.

I really, really enjoyed this book.

To be honest it took me a good 50-75 pages to get into the world and understand it. But once I was past that I loved it.

I loved the world she created even though it took me a bit to get into it but I loved the characters even more.  We do get multiple POVs in this book and that really made it so much better.

I really enjoyed the strong female lead and their friendship above all. I also loved that even we get a few guys in, that they don’t have to take over the story and war.

I love Safi and Iseult. I love that they both have strengths and weaknesses, which they are very aware of and play of each other. It comes up in their banter a lot. Both of them have snark, which is really enjoyable and made for few laugh out loud moments.

I really enjoyed seeing some things from Iseult’s POV with her as a threadwitch, it was really fun to see what she sees.

Aeduan, was my bae in this book and I wished we would have gotten more of him and his sneaky thinking, I’m also curious to learn more about his background and his family but even more so his history with Evrane, I think there is more than we are led  to believed.

Speaking of Evrane to be honest I dint fully trust her in the beginning but I really did enjoy her and what she brought to this book.

Merik, my admiral / prince was also my bae I enjoyed him way too much. He was one of the few who didn’t have a fair deal in this book and had to deal with a lot of crap. I loved his humor but also his honor. I think what I enjoyed the most about him was his relationship with his crew.

Kullen we don’t get much of him but what we get I loved and made a big impact on the book and story.

Overall I really loved this book and the characters and was happy that I already had book two handy since it does leave you with a semi cliffhanger.

This book had everything I love in a book, strong female lead with a strong friendship, lots of action, humor and even more twist and turns.

I only give it 4 ★ because it took me a while to get into the world but after that I absolutely loved it and pretty much devoured this book.
