After the slight let down of book two (review here) I was needing this book to be on par with what I experienced in the first book, and I’m happy to say that Bloodwitch fully delivered. As you can expect from the title this book offers us more of an insight into the Bloodwitch Aeduan and his past, just as Windwitch did with Merik and the Nihars. It is also a book where all the , all the journeys and adventures of the previous two books come together at last. All that waiting as a reader finally pays off in this book and it’s exactly what I was hoping for – with a few extra surprises along the way.

The best fantasy epics for me are the ones that throw out some twists and turns that I didn’t see coming and Bloodwitch has it’s share of those. Some are a delight and others are ones that will make your heart ache. I wasn’t quite reaching for a box of tissues although I’m sure as The Witchlands series continues I’m probably going to be. This is a series that is not going to pull its punches.
