Truthwitch by Susan Dennard

Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
Published by Tor Teen in January 2016

"In a continent on the edge of war, two witches hold its fate in their hands.

Young witches Safiya and Iseult have a habit of finding trouble. After clashing with a powerful Guildmaster and his ruthless Bloodwitch bodyguard, the friends are forced to flee their home.

Safi must avoid capture at all costs as she's a rare Truthwitch, able to discern truth from lies. Many would kill for her magic, so Safi must keep it hidden - lest she be used in the struggle between empires. And Iseult's true powers are hidden even from herself.

In a chance encounter at Court, Safi meets Prince Merik and makes him a reluctant ally. However, his help may not slow down the Bloodwitch now hot on the girls' heels. All Safi and Iseult want is their freedom, but danger lies ahead. With war coming, treaties breaking and a magical contagion sweeping the land, the friends will have to fight emperors and mercenaries alike. For some will stop at nothing to get their hands on a Truthwitch." -- Goodreads

Will you like it?
If you like fantasy, yes.  If you like strong female characters, yes.  If you like unique world building, yes.  I truly was fascinated with this book.  Safi and Iseult are completely badass, and don't take shit from anyone.  I can't wait to read the next book.  With the ending that we had, I think some major things are going to be happening right away.  Also, I listened to the audiobook and I LOVED the accents that the narrator gave all of the characters.

Disclosure: I borrowed the audiobook from my local library from Overdrive.
