Sightwitch by Susan Dennard
Happy Sunday everyone,
I am now traveling to Rome, for the award ceremony to Bishop of the Republic, for those who do not know, and almost certainly tomorrow the ceremony will be live here in Italy, from 11:00.
I tried however not to skip today’s post, so I prepared everything yesterday. The review I do is on Sightwitch, by Susan Dennard, recently released, sent to me by Netgalley, prequel (0.5) of the saga started with Truthwitch.
I confess that I have not read the other books of the saga, but this book, if you intend to read others, is a reading accessible to all, because you just have read the plots of the other books, and not have read them in entirely.
I can not give a high evaluation to this book for the simple fact that it was more an explanatory book, a book that tells the story of the Sightwitches, how they are created, and focuses in particular on some of them, with POV and illustrations. At this book I wanted to give three stars, because despite being a prequel, it does not contain all that adventure that I thought had, I had much higher expectations for this book. But I decided to give four stars because Susan Dennard is a phenomenal author. Her writing is flowing, sweet to read, and then she is a fantastic teacher when it comes to writing. I love the way she gives me new ideas on how to plot my stories, the suggestions she gives about how to write a first draft, etc. You can find everything on her web site, and in every newsletter she adds a new suggestion. PHENOMENAL.
However, returning to Sightwitch, if you are curious to find out more about the witch world of Susan Dennard, you should read it. Her protagonists are all Badass, she is able to bring out the best of them. There is not a character in this book that you will get tired of, because everyone has their own story, and everyone manages to bring out the best in themselves.
I leave you to your readings,
To the next time,
