The Witch Hunters have come for Brusenna, for she is the last. All the others have been captured by the Dark Witch. And without their magical songs to control nature, the world is dying.My Thoughts :
Though young and untrained, Brusenna must succeed where every other Witch has failed. Find the Dark Witch. Fight her. Defeat her. If Brusenna fails, there will be nothing left to save - for the Witches, for mankind, or for the young Guardian who has committed his life to protecting hers.
- I've had this book, both on my shelf and on my kindle, for quite a while so when I got the chance to listen to the audio I jumped at it!
- Brusenna lives with her mother deep in the woods. She knows what everyone calls her and knows that they fear her. She thinks she is nothing special and keeps to herself. Her life is quite sheltered, until another witch comes calling. Brusenna finds out exactly what it means to be a witch!
- I loved Brusenna!! She is quite timid at the start but she finally finds the strength she needs to be who she is supposed to be. Senna knows next to nothing about Witches and has to learn as she goes but that doesn't stop her. She goes into the lions den knowing that she may not come out alive. She was so brave.
- We then have Joshen, who is Sennas guardian and steadfast companion throughout. He was another amazing character. I loved seeing Joshen and Sennas relationship grow. It was so sweet.
- There is a whole lot of characters in Witch Song and each was extremely well written and developed. Senna especially grew a lot throughout the story. We even get the bad guys POV at times, which added to the story.
- Plot wise, it was fast paced and gripping. The world building and lore was fascinating and I loved the authors spin she put on the Witches. The Witches sing songs to cast their spells so there is no magic wands!! I loved that unique concept. The Witches can sing to the wind, earth, fire etc and there are songs to heal and pretty much do everything which Senna needs to learn because she can only do the basics.
- Once I started listening to this, it was so hard to stop. The author grabbed me from the very first page and weaved a wonderful tale around me. From it's amazing characters to its beautifully written world, Witch Song is a must read. It's a magically captivating world and one I can't wait to jump back into!
- I listened to the audio and loved it. Melissa Reizian Frank did a great job of bringing Senna to life. She really knows how to grab the reader. I will definitely be checking out more by her.
