Bloodwitch (The Witchlands #3) by Susan Dennard

High in a snowy mountain range, a monastery that holds more than just faith clings to the side of a cliff. Below, thwarted by a lake, a bloodthirsty horde of raiders await the coming of winter and the frozen path to destroy the sanctuary and its secrets.

The Bloodwitch Aeduan has teamed up with the Threadwitch Iseult and the magical girl Owl to stop the destruction. But to do so, he must confront his own father and his past.

Jan’s Review

This out of all 4 books the 3 mains ones and the novella Sightwitch, this one right here, with Iseult, Aeduan, Owl and a bat named Blueberry, is the one that stabbed me right in the heart, left me tear streaked and dying to know what comes next. We all are speckling on what the next book title will be and rumors abound that it will be about Iseult.

This book does what every good book should do leaves each chapter with you gasping for breath and flipping pages wanting more and more never wanting to put the book down till the wee hours of the morning. You lay it down and you grasp what-what I need more and you cry and grieve that you have to wait.

Sometimes I can find it hard to follow a story that has multiple POV to keep track of but not with this story. Especially since each book has one that takes the lead so your not left stumbling around trying to figure out where the story is going. This one the bloodwitch takes the lead as we find out how much his power takes from even from the moments of his birth. He has a power unlike any other that makes those around him treat him as though he is a demon.

What really made this one the winner was how through all of this pain and loss our bloodwitch endures. Right at the very end of the book, you see him really grasp the theme that he no longer alone he is now we. The addition of owl and her bat Blueberry really strengthened the outlook of hope for Aeduan. He is determined that he will no longer be a pawn for his father who finally knows is the Raider King.

You may feel that not a lot happens to move the plot along in this third book but the reveals about the backstory of the characters are all the hints you need to really see where this story is hopefully going. Excited to read the next book in this amazing well thought out story.
