Book Review: Truth or Death

Book Review: Truth or Death

Truth or Death: Act One: A Prequel Novella


Sara C. Roethle

Author of the Xoe and The Tree of Ages.

Truth or Death is an Occult Fantasy. A first for me and not one of my favorite genres as I found out.

Madeline is ‘other’ and has been living in the human world until she is kidnapped in the middle of the night.

I had a hard time keeping my attention on the book which is not how I usually am with Ms. Roethle’s books; usually I can’t put the book down but this one just didn’t grab my attention and keep it.

Thinking back on it there’s quite a bit that reminds me of what I’ve read and seen about Stockholm Syndrome where the one who was kidnapped identifies with their captors and will even defend them.

This is the start of the Vaettir Series, a prequel novella that comes in around 18,000 words. I will most likely read the next book because I DO want to know what happened to Madeline and how she handles her fledgling crush on one of her Vaettir kidnappers and her intense dislike of one of the others, the books just won’t be high on my priorities list.

All in all I would say go for it if you’re looking for a quick read or enjoy Ms. Roethle’s works or Occult Fantasy.


Give me some sugar!
