Secret Truthwitch Blog Tour - Safiya fon Hasstrel Fan Art

Sunday, November 1, 2015

The Truthwitch Blog Tour is a surprise blog tour hosted by Liran (@ Empress of Books). Although there is an official blog tour, Liran recruited a ton of Susan Dennard fans (or just people who are super excited for Truthwitch in general) to this blog tour in order to spread our love and appreciation for Sooz and spread the word for Truthwitch! What's different about this blog tour is that it consists of content made by fans in anticipation for Truthwitch's release.

I am absolutely IN LOVE with both the UK and US Truthwitch covers, so I thought it would be interesting to see what they would look like combined. Thus, my sketch of Safiya fon Hasstrel was created, with her UK look to the left, and the US look on the right. For reference, here are the UK (left) and US (right) covers of Truthwitch. (Aren't they absolutely GORGEOUS?!?!)

So without further ado, here's my sketch of Safi!

About Truthwitch (via Goodreads): 

On a continent ruled by three empires, some are born with a “witchery”, a magical skill that sets them apart from others.

In the Witchlands, there are almost as many types of magic as there are ways to get in trouble—as two desperate young women know all too well.

Safiya is a Truthwitch, able to discern truth from lie. It’s a powerful magic that many would kill to have on their side, especially amongst the nobility to which Safi was born. So Safi must keep her gift hidden, lest she be used as a pawn in the struggle between empires.

Iseult, a Threadwitch, can see the invisible ties that bind and entangle the lives around her—but she cannot see the bonds that touch her own heart. Her unlikely friendship with Safi has taken her from life as an outcast into one of reckless adventure, where she is a cool, wary balance to Safi’s hotheaded impulsiveness.

Safi and Iseult just want to be free to live their own lives, but war is coming to the Witchlands. With the help of the cunning Prince Merik (a Windwitch and ship’s captain) and the hindrance of a Bloodwitch bent on revenge, the friends must fight emperors, princes, and mercenaries alike, who will stop at nothing to get their hands on a Truthwitch.
