A gorgeous witchy adventure with lush world building, realistic characters, sweet romance, and unique magic.


Brusenna thought it was finished. She defeated the Dark Witch, saving the Witches from imprisonment and death. She found love and a place to belong.

But she was wrong. 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.

Mon avis sur…

L’histoire

Pour ceux qui ont lu ma chronique sur « Witch Song », le tome 1 de cette saga d’Amber Argyle, vous savez que, si j’adorais l’originalité et l’action de l’univers d’Amber Argyle, j’ai eu plus de mal avec la personnalité tout à fait agaçante de son héroïne qui, quand elle ne pleurait pas, se mettait en colère ou se plaignait. Toutefois, c’est vrai qu’en refermant le livre, on ne peut que vouloir découvrir la suite !
C’est ce qui m’est arrivé : je voulais vraiment en découvrir plus et me replonger dans ce monde de sorcellerie. Ainsi, quand j’ai eu la possibilité de lire « Witch Born », je me suis littéralement jetée dessus, malgré la petite appréhension quant à Senna et son caractère insupportable.
Et heureusement que j’ai continué ! Ce second opus est beaucoup mieux à bien des égards : que ce soit au niveau des personnages, autant principaux que secondaires, ou au niveau de l’action, tout a bien plus de profondeur que dans le premier livre.
Senna, notamment, est celle qui a opéré le plus de changement entre les deux tomes : elle a grandi, gagné en maturité, et malgré quelques fausses notes (notamment son attitude totalement contradictoire avec Joshen, soufflant le chaud et le froid), elle m’a beaucoup plus plu ! On la sent aussi en proie à une grande souffrance intérieure, partagée entre ce qu’elle doit faire et ce qu’elle aimerait faire. Elle est donc plus sombre que dans le tome 1, moins naïve et plus courageuse également.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Bien meilleur que le tome précédent 10 mai 2015
Par Allison TOP 1000 COMMENTATEURS
Format:Broché
Quelle bonne lecture ! Witch Born est une excellente suite, qui corrige tous les défauts qui m'avaient légèrement dérangée lors de ma lecture de Witch Song. Et cette fois aussi, je l'ai lu en lecture commune avec Justine et cela n'a fait que la rendre plus agréable encore ! Je tiens aussi à remercier une nouvelle fois les éditions Lumen et le forum Au Cœur de l'imaginarium pour leur confiance et pour l'excellent moment que j'ai passé grâce à eux !

Je ne vais pas m'attarder sur l'objet livre, une fois de plus, mais mon avis reste le même que pour tous les romans des éditions Lumen que je possède (et ça commence à en faire pas mal... J'en ai neuf !) : le livre est beau, bien illustré et agréable à lire. La maison sait donner envie à ceux qui ont l'esprit collectionneur !

On retrouve Senna quelques mois après la fin des événements du premier tome. Elle vit maintenant au Refuge où elle apprend à maîtriser son art auprès des sorcières qu'elle a délivrées, mais tout ne se passe pas bien pour autant. En effet, non seulement elle ne se sent pas vraiment à sa place et peine à se rapprocher de ses consœurs, mais elle est toujours en froid avec sa mère et ne peut pas voir Joshen autant qu'elle le voudrait, les hommes n'étant pas autorisés à vivre sur l'île. Comme si cela ne suffisait pas, elle est victime d'une attaque dès les premières pages du roman, et ce alors qu'elle essaye de libérer la Tartennie de la malédiction qui la frappe depuis la fin du premier tome.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Bien mais à conseiller à un jeune public 21 avril 2015
Par Jess Swann TOP 500 COMMENTATEURS
Format:Broché
Après un premier tome qui m'avait tout de même laissée sur ma faim, j'ai beaucoup apprécié ce second volet qui, après une première moitié un peu répétitive accélère enfin le rythme. J'ai particulièrement aimé le personnage de Cord, le nouveau "Protecteur" de Senna ainsi que la version moins "toute belle toute rose" des sorcières : loin de l'idée gentillette des femmes proches de la nature et blablabla du premier tome, on se rend compte avec cet opus qu'elles ne sont pas si bonnes qu'elles le prétendent et que certaines peuplades ont réellement des bonnes raisons de les haïr. En revanche, Senna devient un peu agaçante avec son côté "je suis la plus forte, la sorcière qui pense aux pauvres gens ect..." Idem pour sa relation avec Joshen qui m'a confinée à l'ennui total. Heureusement, l'introduction d'une nouvelle dynamique dans l'histoire, les nouveaux pouvoirs de Senna et la relation qu'elle entretient avec Cord sont autant de points intéressants dans cette suite. Donc au final, j'ai globalement apprécié même si je considère toujours que ce roman est plus adapté à un public ado/young adult, pour moi ça manque un peu de sel (sexe ?). Une mention spéciale pour les 50 dernières pages qui sont justes superbes ! Même si je n'aurais pas fait le même choix que Senna, je trouve que cette fin est parfaitement logique avec son évolution et que son personnage y gagne en maturité.

Ce que j'aime : le personnage de Cod, sa dynamique avec Senna, le côté sombre des sorcières.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Amber Argyle's Books Are So Addicting You Can't Put Them Down!! 25 août 2012
Par S. Staley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
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.

-Great Main Character Senna: Here is why I loved this character;though she is a truly powerful witch, she is still very "human" in many of her actions. She is not perfect. She has doubts about herself and what she can accomplish. She has feelings and often puts them on the line. In other words, she is very relatable. I like this in a character. It is very easy to put yourself in her place with what she is thinking and feeling.

-Interesting Magic System and History: I loved figuring our how the witches gain power, and what the power is. I also was intrigued with how the witches could control the natural elements. The history also unfolds in the second book, Witch Born. By no means does this make the book boring. It only enhances the story as events unfold.

Gorgeous Covers:
Do I need to say more???

-Great Love Story:
Senna and her Guardian, Joshen, have a very sweet, but normal relationship. They share a great love, but they also have their share of arguments. Through most of both books there is no love triangle; and that is all I am going to say. ;)

-Refreshing and Original Storyline:
I have been reading a lot of fantasy and paranormal stories the past two years. The Witch Song Series is very different from other stories that have witches in them. If you're tired of vampires, this is a great choice! The author states at the beginning, "The Author wished to use America's resonance with the Salem Witch Trials. Therefore, the technology and setting for Nefalie are loosely based off of seventeenth century New England" and this time period has always fascinated me. There is also a lot of action that leaves you sitting on the edge of your seat, from chapter to chapter. I couldn't read fast enough!

Overall, I really loved this series full of interesting characters with such a refreshing and unique storyline. I recommend Witch Song and Witch Born to ages 11 and up. With a main character that grows and matures, you grow to love and admire her. This is a fantastic read which I will read again!

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!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Loved! 3 septembre 2012
Par Amber I @ AwesomeSauce - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
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!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Perfect Sequel 25 novembre 2012
Par Cindy (Draumr Kópa) - Publié sur Amazon.com

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.

The book starts off with an explosion of action that pulls you into the story right away.
Actually, the whole story is a rollercoaster of new discoveries and twists that I'd never seen coming and fast-paced action that got me glued to the pages. The author kept me guessing about a lot of characters, I just couldn't figure out who to trust. I think I suspected every single one of the characters during the story.

Senna is going through a lot of changes that leave her confused and kind of alone. She doesn't know what's happening to her and no one seems to want to tell her. In Witch Born I had a better connection with Senna than in Witch Song. She has grown so much since the beginning. She's not a frightened little girl defenseless when harassed by a market vendor anymore. I like this confident, more mature Senna.

I could keep going on about this book, but I'll end the review here and let you discover the rest of the wonderful things in this tale for yourself.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Witch Born (Witch Song #2) 23 janvier 2014
Par Leeanna Chetsko - Publié sur Amazon.com

WITCH BORN, the second book of the Witch Song series, picks up where WITCH SONG ended. Senna is now at Haven, learning all about her Witch abilities, but life isn’t happily ever after. She’s separated from Joshin, her Guardian, because the Witches don’t approve of their relationship. Senna’s powers are also increasing, and when she discovers a huge secret, she’ll stop at nothing to set right the wrongs of the past.

One of my minor quibbles with WITCH SONG was that Senna just used plants and seeds in conjunction with her songs. In WITCH BORN, the magic system is elaborated upon, showing how the Witches control the elements and create potions. When Senna travels back to Tartan, the land the Witches cursed at the end of WITCH SONG, we get to see the effects of their curse to deny Tartan life: in mere months, the country is a destroyed husk of its former self.

Senna’s romance with Joshin cools a bit, both because of their forced separation and also because when they are reunited, Joshin tries too hard to protect Senna. I appreciated that Senna realized she had to accept and love herself before she could love someone else.

I did have a big peeve with WITCH BORN, though. The other Witches, especially the ones in charge, know that something is happening to Senna. She’s become extremely powerful, and unlike the others, she can actually hear the elements. They know she is Creator-touched, yet they refuse to tell her what that means, and why it’s important. I HATE that sort of thing, especially since Senna was attacked over and over again, almost kidnapped, etc.

I also thought that the book was a bit long, just like the first in the series. I think some of the book could have been edited down, to make it a bit tighter. That said, I did like the second half, and did like where the author went with the story, revealing secrets the Witches have kept forever.
