The third instalment in the Witchlands series, Bloodwitch is an thrilling adventure that I struggled to put down. The stakes are ever-higher, the world and its mythology ever-expanding, and I cannot wait for the next book!

The Bloodwitch named Aeduan has intrigued me since Truthwitch so I've been looking forward to his book for years. And it did not disappoint! It's great to finally know -- know who he is, know who his parents are, know why he lacks Threads and what he'd endured before he appeared in Safi and Iseult's lives.

Isadora is everything I wanted for the last instalment of The Chronicles of Kaya. It was brilliantly written and emotional, and I raced through it in two sittings. Falco and Isadora are probably my favourite pair from this series.
