Everything had gone horribly wrong.
Chapter 1, Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
This book has been a long, long time in the reading. I was lucky enough to read the long sampler on netgalley and when the book was up for preorder, I preordered it. Its publication date came and went, and the book wouldn’t ship. I think the Book Depository people hate me now from how much I pestered them. After a week or so, I cancelled my order and had to boil in my anger while waiting for the money to go back to my credit card so I can order another edition. 2 weeks after that I had the book in my hands at last but I was reading a review copy that required my full attention (review coming soon). Alas, I had to put TRUTHWITCH on my shelf and endure its beautifully taunting cover. But now, I’ve picked it up at last. And you know what they say, “Hardships make your reward so much sweeter.”
