Sightwitch written by Susan Dennard is about Ryber Fortiza as she tries to save her sisters. In light of it all, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The only warning I would head is that to understand it, you might have had to read the first book. That being Truthwitch. In like manner of every review I do, we’ll start with a list of what I liked. First, is my understanding, then plot, and finally, characters.
This probably sounds crazy when I first say it but once I explain, it will all make sense. One of the reasons I like the Truthwitch series so much is the complexity of it all. There’s an elaborate scheme to things that can get confusing at times, or are left unanswered. To me, this brings a realistic air to everything that I quite enjoy and keeps me reading. Sightwitch brings lots of that to light- it gives you an understanding. Take Ryber for example, she was in previous books. Reading her backstory helped me understand who she is a little more, and why she acted the way she did. So, if you are just starting with this, I advise not to. But if you feel confident, by all means go for it!
I liked the style Dennard used for us the reader, and the plot was filled with action. It had a great balance of action and information. I say this because some books are just mindlessly filled with action; but with this one that more realistic air is back.
The characters I already fell for in the books before this. There are only really three main characters, the rest of them as you learn quite early on go missing. The three of these characters is Ryber, Kullen, and the Rook. Kullen and Ryber we already met from previous books and I’ve always liked them. The Rook on the other hand, is new. Even though he is well, a rook, he is oddly human in his actions. He’s smart, sassy, and even has a backstory of his own!
To summarize, the book was enjoyable! If you like Susan Dennards other books and fantasy, I would add this to the list!
