Book jacket description:
On a continent ruled by three empires, some, like Safi and Iseult, are born with distinct magical skills. Safiya is a Truthwitch, able to discern truth from lies. It’s a powerful magic that many would kill to have on their side. 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. Her unlikely friendship with Safi has taken her from life as an outcast into one of reckless adventure.
Safi and Iseult just want to be free to live their own lives, but war is coming to the Witchlands. With the help of Prince Merik, a Windwitch and ship's captain, they must learn how to wield their magic to preserve the balance of their world.
