[Book Review] Bloodwitch by Susan Dennard ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Best Blogger Tips
Heya dear readers! It’s been so long since I updated my blog. And even longer since my last book review. Hehehe~ But yeah... I’m back to share with you my thoughts about my latest read, Bloodwitch by author Susan Dennard. I also posted a short version of this review on Goodreads and Facebook. šŸ˜ƒ

I started reading The Witchlands series last year. Truthwitch was good, but it was only an okay read for me. It actually took me a year to pick up its sequel, Windwitch. And then poof! It just kept getting better and better. After that, I rushed through Sightwitch so I can read Bloodwitch ASAP. It helps a lot that Aeduan is my favorite character. šŸ¤Ŗ




Bloodwitch is the third book in the Witchlands series. It is the sequel to Windwitch. And just like its predecessor, it was really engrossing... from the first page to the last! This book practically put me out of a reading slump! 


Plot:

The first chapters starts off immediately where Windwitch left off. No flashbacks to remind you of the previous events there.

As always, the author tells the stories in the perspectives of different characters. The pacing forces the reader to focus and to put the puzzle together. There are viewpoints from Safi, Iseult and Merik... but Aeduan’s parts are what interests me most! And since the book is titled after him, the character development focused on him. His past is shown which gives readers a deeper understanding of the Bloodwitch that he is. And watch out for the mind-blowing twist! The author just dropped it like a bomb! You need to read the prequel novella Sightwitch for it.

I personally like the plot and how the author lays it all out piece by piece and in small, detailed chunks. Betrayal, warfare, pain... all these are part of the roller coaster of emotions you will experience.

But of course, this book is a balance of love and war. There are also romantic scenes but only hints. It frustrates me at times, because really... come on!

Characters:

The personalities of each character is uniquely written. The perky Safi, the hot-tempered Merik, the calm Iseult, and the conflicted Aeduan... Susan Dennard sees to it that each perspective is written to reflect what the character would or should do in a given situation. And this gives The Witchlands series a promising mix of stories borne out of their differences.

Writing style:

It amazes me how authors improve their articulation and writing skill in each and every sequel. Susan Dennard’s word mastery has come a long way since Truthwitch. And I’m very glad of the result Bloodwitch has become.

Only with Susan Dennard do I get to read about plants, trees, water, and land formations in exact detail. She narrates about Cattails and Rhododendrons, about deltas, plateaus, and waterfalls. It helps the reader come up with the best imagery possible.

The fight scenes are clearly described and the author writes it with realistic detail. There are also subtle hints of romance in all of Aeduan’s chapters. The way the author wrote it is so superb, I want to make Aeduan my book boyfriend (as if he’s not already :PšŸ¤Ŗ)! 

"Te varuje". My favorite quote in Bloodwitch.

Conclusion:


Rating: 5/5 stars




There’s still a lot of unanswered questions about the Witchlands world: the legends, the magic, its histories, and some characters. I’m still confused as to how the Cahr Awens, Palladins, gods and goddesses would fit in together. But I trust the author and I know her style. She will reveal these along with the plots in the sequels! Hmmm... I think it’s best to wait for the release of all the Witchlands books first before you start reading it... but nah... no one wants to do that! You’ll be missing a lot if you do! šŸ˜‚

I want more but it ended abruptly! Noooo! A cliffhanger! You mean, I need to wait for almost a year for the next book? šŸ˜­šŸ˜±



 Get your copies of Bloodwitch, guys! It's a worthy read!
