I would give this book 3 for a review.
From New York Times bestselling author Susan Dennard, Sightwitch is a standalone illustrated novella set in the Witchlands and told through Ryber’s journal entries and sketches.
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.
I liked this story. I overall loved the structure of this novel. I loved learning more about the witchland series overall. I really did liked how this story connected back to Kullen. I felt like this story sometimes had to many mini storylines that I did not always spy the connections. I was engaged in the story. I really did like this story, but I wanted more and just one clear story. I am excited to see how this novella connects to the whole story as well!
