I had completely missed Truthwitch when it was first released. But last month it was the Tor Book Club book, so I gave it a try. It is an action packed story, right from the start where the two main characters flee, and actually don’t stop fleeing for the remainder of the book.
While there are definitely some major flaws in Truthwitch, not in the least the romance which is so obvious from the start that even a blind man should have seen it coming, this was the kind of book that I needed at the moment. A quick, better not too much thinking kind of book with a lot of action, and a magic system that could either become rather interesting, or just a way too easy plot device.
The jury is still out on that one, but I would like to try at least one sequel.
