A review by ayah_reads
Windwitch, by Susan Dennard

3.0

Somewhere between 3 to 4 stars???? More so 3 stars?????

Like the rating, reviewing this book is difficult. I don't really know how I feel about it.

This book has many perspectives, and usually I love multi povs, but it felt like too much. We had FIVE povs, and while two of them converge earlier on, we still maintain basically four separate plotlines. Obviously they intertwine, but it was still frustrating.

Aside from two characters and their povs, the other three povs don't interact with each other for the majority of this book, because of this it really felt like separate plotlines which could have been fine, but we never got to delve into each enough because we constantly had to go to another pov. Even though the book takes place over a short amount of time, it felt really slow???? Yes things are happening, but it just didn't feel like enough. Only in the last quarter of the book did things pick up, and that's extremely late in the game.

I guess if I was attached to more of the characters maybe this would have been better??? But because most of them were seperated, we barely got any character dynamics and relationships, and for this series, I feel like I need them to actually care about the characters??? It's probably partly why the two povs that converged where my favourite parts of this book.

Like the first book, Iseult and Aeduan are my favourite characters, povs, and plotlines. A big motivation of me to read was to get to their povs
