Synopsis (from Goodreads):
The world is changing. Once, Witch Song controlled everything from the winds to the shifting of the seasons-but not anymore. All the Witches are gone, taken captive by a traitor. All but Brusenna. As the echo of their songs fade, the traitor grows stronger. Now she is coming for Brusenna. Her guardian has sworn to protect her, but even he can't stop the Dark Witch. Somehow, Brusenna has to succeed where every other Witch has failed. Find the traitor. Fight her. Defeat her. Because if Brusenna doesn't, there won't be anything left to save.
At last! After a long time, I’m doing another book review that you will definitely enjoy to read. Here’s a book by Amber Argyle entitled Witch Song. Well, it’s the first time that I’ll be reviewing a non-series novel. I like how Argyle created and crafted a whole new world of witches, a different land of fantasy and amazing set of characters. The story is the epic, kinda Before-Christ setting and what I like most is how Argyle played with her imagination of giving a breath of fresh air to the common witches that we have been reading in books. I also love the idea that the witches' spells are made in to songs with witches song lyrics to cast Brusenna's power being a witch.
Moreover, the story is action-packed and it seemed that every chapter has a climax to get excited for. I liked how the main character Brusenna dealt with her fate being the only witch alive to save the other witches captured by the evil witch. Brusenna’s journey to dangerous lands made me so engrossed reading the book! Besides that, the amazing cover of the book reflects the amazing plot of the Witch Song. It’s simply awesome! However, in the first part of the book, I was slow getting into the story but eventually, I realized that that’s what makes it engrossing to read because of the mystery that won’t make you stop reading until you unveil it.
Well I guess it’s another novel to watch out for in the big screen. I’d really love to see a movie version of Witch Song!
