Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Safi is a truthwitch. she can tell when someone is telling a lie and truth. Cool, right? Except cooler when she's the only one known of her kind. Also dangerous gross people want to marry her. She flees/is kidnapped by a certain prince whom she really does not get along with. Save for one sexy dance they have at the beginning.
Iseul is Safi's thread sister. They are closer than family even if blood doesn't bind them. Iseult is a threadwitch. She can see the thread's of people's lives. She also lives in a world where racism run rampant against the color of her skin. When Safi flees, Iseult also finds herself fleeing back to her home village. However, something is amiss.
This was a slow read, albeit a good one. I'll be honest, I almost DNFed near half way through but I'm glad I did't. The last 30-40% was so so so worth it.
The girls in this book have an unrivaled friendship. It was good to see them grow independently in tis book, but I do hope they are together the entirety of the sequel. Pipe dreams I know.)
