Présentation de l'éditeur

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.

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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Outstanding YA book 5 août 2011
Par Lisa F. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Brusenna is a teen who lives in the forest alone with her mother. The villagers shun them because her mother is a witch. She is shamed and humiliated and basically afraid of contact with other people. An unexpected visitor comes and her mother leaves to try to defeat a truly "wicked witch".

Brusenna lives alone until danger faces her at home, it is her turn then to take up her mother's mantle as a witch and try to right the wrongs that have been inflicted due to the evil witches influence. This means that she must face her fears and venture into the outside world, alone.

Brusenna, now known as Senna, goes on a journey that tests her physically and mentally. She grows into a strong young woman and meets some friends and a romantic interest along the way. I loved that her growing up was gradual, it didn't happen overnight. She learns to trust others and to trust herself.

I loved the strength that she learns and shows. I loved that Amber Argyle created witches that are guardians who protect the land and sea. They create balance and help nature in it's proper function.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good story about the battle between good and evil, a young woman's journey from an awkward teen. The blossoming of friendship into love, and the true meaning of loyalty. This book is squeaky clean and any mother could feel comfortable and confident in their children reading it.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 A solid 2.5 - middle of the road territory 29 août 2011
Par Misty Braden - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
When I read the first page of this, I got kind of excited. The MC, Brusenna, is simply trying to buy something from the village market and is being harassed by a vendor without having actually done anything. I love a good outsider/underdog story, and the initial setup gave me flashbacks to Plain Kate, which I loved. I had high hopes. And though that Otherness, that outsider-ness is a part of the story, it turned out to be a sort of minimal part of the story. Which is fine: it's not the story's fault that I didn't get what I thought I was going to get.

But what I did get...I don't have much to say about. I don't know how to make this not sound like a really negative review, because in truth, it's not. I didn't hate this book. I didn't even really dislike this book. But I didn't really love it or like it all that much either. I experienced the typical "Oh I like that, eww that not so much"s that one does while reading, but it never really went one way or the other for me. It was a wash, and in the end I was left feeling a little indifferent.

How do I explain this...

It's like soup.
You can make soup from a can and it's good, it's serviceable. But it's one note, usually kinda salty and a bit mushy. Or you can spend hours making soup from scratch, layering the flavors and creating something complex and savory, that bursts with flavor on your tongue. Both are soup. Both can be satisfying in their own soup-way. But I'm not really a canned soup kinda girl. I will spend hours making a frakking bowl of soup, so that when I sit down to eat it I can savor it. I can taste all of those different ingredients in every bite, and the way they play off of each other to make something more.
soup vs Soup.
You eat soup for sustenance; you eat Soup because it warms your soul.
So this was like eating a bowl of soup when what I wanted was a bowl of Soup. Not bad, but not something that's going to leave much of an impression.

If that much-generalized, utterly ridiculous metaphor doesn't do it for you, here are some of the specifics:

Things I liked:
* The sort of adventure story, with the traveling and the procuring of horses and boats and whatnot.
* The visual aspects of the writing. I was really able to see the world Argyle created and picture how it looked, how it worked, etc.
* Brusenna's personal story of growth. It was not quite a coming of age story, but in some ways it kind of was. It was nice to see her open up and let people in after the sheltered life she's led - and it was nice to see her stop pushing people away, which sounds like what I just said, but is different. I was thankful for the time she finally stopped actively pushing people away and being self-pitying.
* Gollum Pogg.
* Joshen. I really liked Joshen.

Things I liked not so much:
* The names. Like, basically any of them.
* I felt like the writing could have used a bit less Tell and a lot more Show. It felt like surface writing, like we never got to really dig down deep and discover the world. What makes Brusenna so special? What turned Espen into the Dark Witch? I don't want to be told these things, I want to discover them, and be shown these things and fit them together into solid world-building.
* The big BA witches fought with seeds. Like, they had seed pods in their belts and they would throw them at each other like 4th of July snappers. Yes, toxic vapors and killer thorns would come out of the seeds, which is coolish, and yes, the whole seeds and greenery and nature thing is very earthy and Wiccan, and I think what Argyle was going for. But I just kept picturing this Gotta-Save-The-Earth showdown as Gotta-Catchem-All Poké balls being thrown around...
* And speaking of the duel, it was...anti-climactic. There was a LOT of buildup, but instead of being really tense during the showdown, I found myself on the verge of giggling. And then it went on for another 50 pages, with a 2nd Big Bad, which I both liked and disliked.
* And speaking of '', I hate even a whiff of deus ex machina.

I have a feeling I am going to end up in the minority on this one. It's getting very high ratings and a lot of praise, so obviously people are connecting with it. And maybe at a different time in my life, when I was younger perhaps, I would have liked this more and connected with Brusenna and her world, and would have cared a bit more. As it is, I neither recommend nor discourage the reading of this. It was middle of the road for me, and will likely fade from mind pretty quickly, but I am sure it will find its audience and ardent supporters.
And it's pretty.

I got very wrapped up in this book. It was an action packed adventure about a good witch. Brusenna thought she was ostracized because her mother was a witch. She soon finds out that she is the last witch and has to face and defeat the Dark Witch Espen. She soon finds there are witch friends that are eager to help and protect her on her quest to defeat the Dark Witch. She is assigned a guardian to protect her. This is a fast moving story and I did not want to put it down. It had my adrenaline flowing. I need to stop writing about the book before I spoil the story for you.

The author has an amazing imagination to come up with this brilliant story. At one point in the book she could have stopped writing and I would still have cheered her work. But she kept going beyond brilliance.

It is a young adult, fantasy and is a must read. I am definitely not a young adult and I loved it. I am hoping the author will write a sequel.

Even though this book is a out of my Christian genre I highly recommend you read this book you won't regret it.

I give this book a rating of 5 out of 5.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 High Hopes, Low Results 9 septembre 2011
Par Andrea Thompson - Publié sur Amazon.com

I have looked forward to reading Witch Song since I saw the cover and synopsis a few months ago. The cover is absolutely haunting, and the synopsis sounded promising. And basically, the story lived up it. Unfortunately though, after reading Witch Song, I don't have a strong opinion one way or the other.

Witch Song is the story of Senna. She is a sweet, sheltered girl whose life is turned on it's axis when she learns she and her mother are witches. Senna must find the strength and determination inside her, in order to navigate a world she knows nothing about and save the witches and nature. Along the way, she meets Joshen, who assists her on her quest. I did like the characters of Senna and Joshen. The quiet strength they both display is quite touching. They are "Everyman" heroes, doing their job without flash or bravado.

I also liked the basic plot points of Witch Song. The journey that Senna goes on is strange and interesting. The author did a terrific job of setting up the world of the story. I felt completely immersed in Witch Song.

However, there were a few things that turned me off to the book. There were several instances in which the story jumps ahead large amounts of time, such as six months or more. And that's fine if you have some indication of this. But in this book, those passages of time are mentioned as almost an afterthought.

Another part that bothered me is Pogg. Pogg is, well, a frog man... I think. I think that Pogg was supposed to be an interesting character, but he only annoyed me. And, Senna can turn into sea creatures. I just could not get on board with these turns in the story.

I really wanted to like this book. And sometimes I did. But the parts I didn't like, overshadowed the rest for me.

Favorite Quote:

"Something soft turned into stone within her. She had no choice. She had to fight. She had to win."

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Terrific debut, awesome book - HIGHLY recommended! 2 août 2011
Par K. Sozaeva - Publié sur Amazon.com

In a scintillating debut, Amber Argyle creates an impressively detailed world for her characters to live in. As impressive as this debut is, I'm sure we have years of wonderful stories to look forward to from this writer.

Brusenna (also called Senna in the story) and her mother Sacra are Witches (or, as they prefer to be called, Keepers). They control their powers through song. In their small town of Gonstower, they are feared and reviled, especially so since a three-year drought has left many villagers on the edge of devastation. Brusenna is in the town trying to buy supplies when she is accused of theft and nearly put into the stocks before a strange, beautiful and obviously powerful woman saves her, then tells Senna she wishes to consult Senna's mother. This turns out to be another Keeper, called Coyel, who has come to tell Sacra that she is one of only eight full-fledged Keepers that remain and is needed to come and fight against the Dark Witch, Espen.

Left alone, Brusenna is attacked by a witch hunter and discovers that her mother, Coyel, and the rest of the Keepers have been taken by Espen and that she - untrained, untried - is the only witch left free. She determines to go and try to save the rest of the Keepers, accompanied by her wolfhound, Bruke, and using a letter and journal that Sacra left for her, in case of this situation. She discovers a whole world that has been kept from her in Sacra's vain attempts to keep her safe from Espen. Along the way she meets many enemies, as well as unexpected friends.

I literally could not put "Witch Song" down once I started it, and remained glued to the pages for the entire time it took to read it. While there were some minor issues that momentarily took me out of the story (like the fact that Brusenna worried about not really knowing how to ride, but took off on a horse and apparently managed to not only ride, but handle the tack by herself with no problem), usually a comment further on in the story either cleared up the issue or clarified the situation to the extent that I was satisfied with things.

Richly imagined, with strong characters, "Witch Song" is a fantasy story to whet the appetites of any reader. Give it a read!
