Before Safi and Iseult battled a Bloodwitch...
Before Merik returned from the dead…
Ryber Fortiza was a Sightwitch Sister at a secluded convent, waiting to be called by her goddess into the depths of the mountain. There she would receive the gift of foretelling. But when that call never comes, Ryber finds herself the only Sister without the Sight.
Years pass and Ryber’s misfit pain becomes a dull ache, until one day, Sisters who already possess the Sight are summoned into the mountain, never to return. Soon enough, Ryber is the only Sister left. Now, it is up to her to save her Sisters, though she does not have the Sight―and though she does not know what might await her inside the mountain.
On her journey underground, she encounters a young captain named Kullen Ikray, who has no memory of who he is or how he got there. Together, the two journey ever deeper in search of answers, their road filled with horrors, and what they find at the end of that road will alter the fate of the Witchlands forever.

Whew. That was a rollercoaster.
It’s safe to say that by now I really just love this series and don’t have anything bad to say about it. While novellas aren’t usually my thing, there was no way I was skipping over this one. And if you are the same way with novellas, trust me, you don’t want to miss out on Sightwitch.
Susan Dennard has crafted a unique, enthralling story with Sightwitch. The journal entries are so well done, and Ryber’s voice really shines through. Her character has so much more depth now, and I can’t wait to see more of her in future books.
My favorite thing about this book is all of the new information to be gleaned. It ties in things from the previous two installments while also setting up new plot threads for future books. I love when this is well done in epic fantasy, and Dennard’s writing here really showcases her ability to build a full story one book at a time.
I absolutely can’t wait to get my finished copy of Sightwitch so I can see all of the beautiful illustrations and truly read through this the way it was intended. I’m so excited to see where this series is going, and with this book it still remains one of my favorites.
