Book Review: Witch Born by Amber Argyle

Title: Witch Born (Witch Song #2) 
Starling Publishing

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?

My Thoughts

Witch Born is the second book in this series and you can read my review of Book #1 Witch Song here.

Amber Argyle has again put me under her spell with the truly beautiful and lyrical way in which she writes.
All the characteristics and qualities that I originally fell in love with her characters for are still there, but this time they are more richly written - more mature versions of themselves.
They have all grown up a little since defeating the wicked witch Espen. They take their roles on Haven and to the Four Sisters more seriously, and in doing so find that they are growing apart and changing their opinions on the way things should be done. Thus causing friendships to strain and for lovers to tiff, and so when danger again threatens their lives and the lives of those they love most, hard choices must be made and may force them apart forever.

From start to finish Witch Born has been an enchanting read. Brusenna really comes into herself and believes in herself so much more this time around, but her frustration is almost tangible.
No-one wants to believe that a mere apprentice could know more, or do more than all the other Haven Witches put together, even her loyal Guardian Joshen fears her need to prove herself.
I love the way the author continually twists and turns the alliances of those around Senna, the poor girl really struggles with who to trust, who to turn to for help - that's what makes her so strong though.

I really can't find fault with anything in Witch Born.
I loved the characters. I loved the story. The writing was beautifully lyrical, rich and addictive.
If anything I just want more!
Witch Born definitely has all the right things going for it and I eagerly await future stories from Amber Argyle. A delightful 5 Star read ~<;]
