The world is changing.

All but Brusenna.

If Brusenna fails, there won’t be anything left to save.

REVIEW

Witch song is about witches who can sing and control the elements and season to a balance. A balance that was disrupted when a witch has gone astray who is consumed with power and ambition. Witch Song – great read but nothing much new about it granted that the story was facinating but the novel was so so in my opinion. This was basically a story that falls under the category of mother-keeping-secrets-to-protect-child-and-eventually-becomes-the-saviour-of-all.

Witches that can sing and manipulate nature – I love this concept especially reading the songs throughout the book, those were fun but the characters were very typical. This is where my problem lies. I expected so much more but ended up craving for something that wasn’t there. It was because of the fact that nothing elevates them from the rest, that was very disappointing on my end. The story telling was magnificent. It was a flawless process, I don’t have anything to say about that. The climax of the story was AMAZING. Didn’t expect that one to happen so that was +1 point to Argyle.

All in all, I recommend this book. Engaging and surprising but don’t expect much in the character department although as I said Argyle made my reading experience great through her story telling. And before I forget, lovely cover don’t you agree? 🙂 Enjoy!
