I decided to do this pre-review for my benefit as well as anyone else interested. The thing is I'll probably forget all these thoughts by the time this book comes out if I don't write them down somewhere. So I decided to do this since my memory is fresh from having just completed Bloodwitch. PLEASE DON'T READ THIS IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THE FIRST 3 BOOKS AS WELL AS SIGHTWITCH

I just read the first book in the series and just realized that when the last one comes out I will be closer to my thirties than to my twenties and I don't know what to make of that. ...more

Finally, a book about my wife.

I've pre-order this book and I'm dying because it will be release in 2021, and I'm not able to wait that longg....
Funny that I was so anxious about the wait for this book, and it turned into a February 2021 release (from January 2019)! So I guess I'll be 25 when this book publishes!

The wait for this book will be all sorts of cruel torture. I'll be, let's see... I'll be 23 at that point (January 2019).

Title revealed! WITCHSHADOW

I’m actually really happy with this title. It might not match the others, but it’s close enough that it doesn’t make me upset!
Feb 20, 2019 marked it as to-read


Hm, Witchshadow it is. Very intriguing. Judging by the premise this one is going to be much darker than its predecessors, hence the shadows. Cannot wait to put my hands on it!

I suppose it's going to be title Threadwitch or (view spoiler)? What do you think?

Also, I don't like to be kept waiting, especially after Bloodwitch's multiply cliffhangers stabs to my heart.

What could this mean? I thought it was going to be Weaverwitch, but now. BUT NOW. I'm not sure??????

In Bloodwitch we find Aeduan on the run with Iseult and Owl, I really liked the different links that are created between these three characters. And if you know me, you already know that I want to see Aeduan and Iseult together, they are both too irresistible. I like the protective and cheeky side of Aeduan and Iseult is so interesting.
Aeduan will become aware of many things in this book, he will try to help Iseult and Owl. He will find an old acquaintance and be confronted with his father. I l

Edit 18.01.17: OMG. Just read Windwitch. (view spoiler)I don't knooow.
Edit 10.01.17: This book will definitely be called Threadwitch, the third one is now officially Bloodwitch. YAAS

I bet that this book will be called Threadwitch. The series starts with a focus on Safiya and ends with Iseult, because the Threadsisters are in the center of the story. Can't wait for Bloodwitch and T

I really can’t wait for this book to come out, for many reasons. Bloodwitch was definitely a great book but as a Merik and Safi shipper I’m really nervous and excited about what’s gonna happen to my babies. They have to end up together.
Also Iz is about to have her book, which I’m sure will include plenty badass scenes, including Aeduan. I’ve fallen in love with the series and the anticipation it’s too much. 😭

Susan said this would be Iseult’s book!!!!!! I cannot wait!!
OH MY GOD there’s an official release date.

I have a feeling I know what the book is going to be baby Iseult is getting her own book AND 2021 IS GONNA BE A TREASURED YEAR GUYS.

I’ve never wanted a book more in my life and no, that is not an exaggeration.

Oct 2019: The idea of Aeduan and Iseult possibly reuniting in this book is going to be my main fuel until February 2021.

Dec 2020: Just realized they pushed the release date from February to June and now I want to cry.

So Witchshadow did a lot of things that shocked and hurt me, but I still wasn’t expected to be so attacked by a character I hadn’t really paid much mind to before. Damn it, this was brilliant. Best one yet.

I am GREATLY anticipating this book, since Bloodwitch only started to weave the plot closer together, as the previous books were describing them as several things that seemed unrelated.


Even those background characters?? Related to the plot 100%.

I am going to have to do a reread before this one comes out in case there's extra things I've missed!

Look at Iseult!!! So pretty! 😍
I’m so happy my girl is getting her own book and I’m so excited for February!!! 2021 can’t come fast enough!! (I mean aren’t we all ready for 2020 to be over?)

Have I read a single book in this series?


Do I own every book currently out?


And did I preorder Witchshadow?

Yes, yes I did.

Do you ever just have one of those series that you're just saving for a particularly rough time because you know you're going to love it and binge every single book in like one weekend? Yeah, that's this series for me. On that note, I am reading book one this weekend so that lets you know my mental state right now 😂

Woop! We have a release date, title, and confirmation that this is Iseult!!

Oof. more than I was expecting. spoiler-filled review to come after release, I'm sure, but for now I'll just say... oh my gods.
crafted beautifully, with chapters layered in just the right way to constantly pull the reader along-- I couldn't get to the next page fast enough. the way characters and arch's crash together and characters grow and learn is just so impressive
i!!!! love each and every one of them and iseult is my favorite, so this book being hers... it was perfect, i can't wait to get

I actually can’t wait at all.
I just finished Bloodwitch and I just realised that I have to wait until 2020. You should one million percent read the first three if you haven’t already. I cannot wait to read Iseult’s book at last!
