Editorial Reviews

Review

If you like books like The Iron Fey seriesBorn Wicked or The Girl of Fire and Thorns, I'm sure you'll enjoy this one. ~Deea, Deea's Journal

It was so refreshing to read high fantasy that's still accessible. ~Melanie, Goodreads reviewer

The romance that blooms is so natural and imperfect and frustratingly lifelike, it draws you in and holds you there, right up until the very last word of the very last chapter. ~WBurr, Amazon Reviewer 

I would recommend this series to people who like Shannon Hale and Gail Carson Levine. ~Kristy, Amethyst Bookworm

I was so lucky to be able to read both books, one right after the other. If I hadn't been able to, I would have gone a little crazy! I had to start book two immediately to see what would happen. I let the author know how I felt about her books when I sent her a message on Facebook, here is what I said...

"There is something missing in your books...a warning at the beginning that your stories are so addicting that you won't be able to put the book down."

When I wrote this to Amber I truly meant it. I took my Kindle to work and it was so hard not to sneak a peek when I shouldn't during the day. I did read it during Silent Reading Time and during my lunch time. That is my warning to you also, once you start reading this series, you won't want to stop reading.

Things I Liked:
-Beautiful Writing Style: Amber has such a beautiful way with her words. The Witches in this series cast spells by singing. I loved the words sung by the witches as they cast protection spells. I hate to admit, even when they cast spells to hurt their enemies. Here is an example of main character Brusenna's, or Senna as she is called mainly in the story, her spell casting...

"Let not the curse of Witches
Destroy a land of natural riches.
Plants, preserve life in thy roots,
Seeds sleep in earth, send forth
no shoots
Until the Witches shall disperse
This terrible and unjust curse."

I am a singer, so I loved that singing was the method of yielding the Witches power. To cripple a witch and put a stopper to her powers, they gag her. But, you will be amazed at everything the witches can do with their powers.

I began reading Witch Song reluctantly (I'm not a huge fantasy fan). Once I started reading though I couldn't get enough! I read through Witch Song in about 12 hours. I was dying to get the sequel once I found out there would be one.
I think that Witch Born was as good or better than Witch Song. The characters in Witch Born become more life like than in Witch Song because you're given an opportunity to get to know them better. The plot thickens in Witch Born because even though the big battle from Witch Song is over, there is still trouble afoot. Some of the characters from Witch Song that we didn't get to know very well resurface in Witch Born and are more fully developed. There are twists in Witch Born that I didn't see coming but they weren't completely off base and random twists - they made sense. I'd like to see a third book in this series because I've grown to love the main characters!

Witch Born is not your typical YA Witch book. Amber Argyle pulls us into this fascinating world that is just magical. The way the witches work with their song, or the vivid details to her creative world just are like nothing I have ever seen. I was captivated with this story only a few pages in and was hooked throughout the entire book.

These witches are not like the ones we usually see. Their magic comes from their song. The witches Senna is around judge a witch by their song and Senna has one of the strongest songs out there. Which should make her life awesome, but its far from it. The Heads are scared of her magic, others are trying to kidnap her and there is just so much happening.

Senna can her the four sisters and she knows something bad is going to happen on the witches private island. But no one wants to listen to her. She also sees how the witches have cursed some lands and she just wants to right the wrongs but to do that she must escape the island.

Seriously there is just so much going on it would take a long time to tell you everything. If you are looking for a change in your normal reads, I seriously suggest these books. I have never read a book quite like the Witch Song or Witch Born.

This is the second book and its the end of Senna's long journey. I loved the way it ended and feel completely satisfied. I will miss this world though!

Last night, when I'd finished reading Witch Born, a lot of sentences were swirling in my head. They all described exactly how I felt about the book and they were perfect to share my feelings with you in a review.
And then I fell asleep.
Off course, after waking up this morning I couldn't remember a thing. This had me frustrated ALL DAY LONG. God, this was such a perfect review in my head. I'll try to recreate it as accurately as I can.

I don't give five dragons that easily, certainly not to YA books. I've outgrown most of them, but I still like to read a few to search for the pearls among them. This is one of those pearls. A big and shiny one.
What made me decide to give this five dragons?
First of all the credibility of this story. There are a lot of fighting scenes and Senna never leaves a confrontation unscathed. Along her journey she gathers a lot of scars, on her body as well as her soul. She's the kind of girl that wants to do good, she wants to solve problems even if that means risking everything she has and is. "If you fail, stand up, dust yourself off and try again" seems to be the perfect motto for our heroine.

I can believe this story, I found myself wrapped in it for hours on end, completely immersed in the world Amber created. To give an example:
I'm a Uni student, so as some of you might know, I go out now and then. Another thing you should know about me: I can't go to sleep without reading a few pages. On Monday I got home at 1 in the night and decided to read just a few pages before I'd go to sleep. When I looked up again and glanced at the clock, it was 3 in the night/morning. Not that good for my hours of sleep that night, but it says a lot about the book. I hadn't noticed at all that 2 hours had passed, that's how absorbed I was.
