Waiting on Wednesday: Truthwitch

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.  Click here to be taken to their most recent WoW post.

This week I'm waiting for Truthwitch, by Susan Dennard.  It's the first in her new series, Witchlands, and drops on January 5th, next year.
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. 
Why I'm Waiting: It has an awesome cover and description!  While I haven't read anything by Susan Dennard (yet), I've heard fantastic things about her books.  This one has a lot of early excitement, especially on Twitter, and I'm hoping for the best.
