Witch Born by Amber Argyle

Witch Born by Amber Argyle

Brusenna thought it was finished.

She defeated the Dark Witch, saving the Haven Witches from imprisonment and death. She found love and a place to belong.

She was wrong.

Haven is not the sanctuary it appears to be. Even love is in danger of slipping away like water through cupped hands.

Some things can't be saved.

A new threat merges with the old as the Witches’ dark history begins to catch up with them. Only Brusenna knows the extent of the danger and how to stop it, though doing so might cost her everything.

Including her life.

Will Brusenna be required to make the ultimate sacrifice? (Summary from Author’s Website)

This sequel to Witch Song picks up with Brusenna in Haven learning all the things she needs to know about being a witch. As an apprentice, she gets through classes fairly well though she has to deal with how her teachers and classmates treat her because her song has become so very strong that it does impossible things.  They speak of her being creator touched, but as Brusenna tries to find out what that means she discovers another coven of witches,  who desire to destroy their haven.

I found that I really got caught up in this book. I remember having a few nitpicks about the first book in this series, but I found that I enjoyed Witch Born a lot more. The plot felt more original, the characters more natural, and there was some really cool world building in this installment. So I really enjoyed this read and felt like the author had really hit her stride in presenting the characters and the world set up around them. I would enjoy reading a sequel, but I am not quite sure where the author would take the characters. I just know that at the end of the story I would have had a lot of fun exploring the new setting the author created for the witches to live in and there wasn’t a whole lot of time to do that.
