Welcome to Comparing Covers where I will showcase a book title that has multiple covers; from first editions, re-releases, and international releases.
Today on Comparing Covers, Truthwitch by Susan Dennard is featured. It seems to me that the YA Fantasy books always have the cool covers. So it’s always a treat for me to peruse those titles and take in the great artwork.
Truthwitch caught my eye and I’ve seen it around some blogs before as well. Although it’s on my TBR list, I haven’t actually read the story. But, I can admire the cover, right? 😉
I’m loving the first US version and the Romanian version isn’t too bad either. They both resemble the kick-ass heroine feel with the fantasy aspects featured as well. Although the UK version is pretty in its own right, I feel that it doesn’t portray what the book could be about.
In a continent on the edge of war, two witches hold its fate in their hands.
Young witches Safiya and Iseult have a habit of finding trouble. After clashing with a powerful Guildmaster and his ruthless Bloodwitch bodyguard, the friends are forced to flee their home.
Safi must avoid capture at all costs as she’s a rare Truthwitch, able to discern truth from lies. Many would kill for her magic, so Safi must keep it hidden – lest she be used in the struggle between empires. And Iseult’s true powers are hidden even from herself.
In a chance encounter at Court, Safi meets Prince Merik and makes him a reluctant ally. However, his help may not slow down the Bloodwitch now hot on the girls’ heels. All Safi and Iseult want is their freedom, but danger lies ahead. With war coming, treaties breaking and a magical contagion sweeping the land, the friends will have to fight emperors and mercenaries alike. For some will stop at nothing to get their hands on a Truthwitch.
Given the blurb, I do feel the first US version of the cover is accurate. Would love to hear your thoughts!
