Présentation de l'éditeur

For centuries, a war has been fought—one that has nearly wiped out the Witches. Without their magical songs, the seasons are breaking apart and the boundaries of nature have splintered.

Two women are all that stand between the world and utter destruction. One must pave the way, the other must take up the fight, and both must choose between saving the world and the men they love . . .With over 1,4000 five star Goodreads ratings.

"In WITCH SONG, Amber Argyle makes a riveting debut, creating a fresh new world full of wonder, peril, and splendor. I found WITCH SONG to be positively engrossing from the first page to the last. I'm convinced that this is just the first book in what will be a long and prosperous career!" David Farland, NYT Bestselling

“An engrossing story peopled with colorful races and far off places await you in Witch Song, an adventure that will sweep you from the daily grind and deposit you on the other side of your imagination . . . Those readers who love books by Shannon Hale and Aprilynne Pike will enjoy Witch Song.” Christy Dorrity, Syracuse Islander

“Witch Song is a debut with an engrossing world full of magic, adventure and romance. It's a story that fascinated me with its unique witch lore and rich world building, and introduced me to some great in-depth characters.” ~Katie, Mundie Moms

“I can honestly say that I haven't gotten this lost in a fantasy world since the Harry Potter series. Witch Song was so unbelievably outstanding . . . Amber Argyle for me, has earned herself a rank equivalent to the best fantasy fiction authors of this decade.” ~Cory, Antidrug Reads

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Different, nicely so. Good witches, bad witches, friends and enemys, good vs evil. 19 juin 2014

Format:Format Kindle
Yes you've heard it all before, witches doing good and bad witches doing harm, enslaving, creating chaos. Things are gojng from bad to worse and with the only hope being an uninitiated untrained witch. But there's beauty around her and beauty in her song. The bad witch my be beautiful as well, but it's clearly only skin deep who else could be cooptted by a crazy lady and sing songs in the spirt of chaos darkness and distruction? This is a well written story with engaging characters. Definatly worth reading. Some other reviewer noted it would probly appeal to many not in the target YA audience and I would agree. I am without doubt not in the target audience being male and almost intolerably old but enjoyed inspite of those handicaps

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent series - you want this boxed set! 18 mai 2015
Par Ashley Ferguson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
This series is one of my all-time favorite fantasy series. It has well-developed, complex characters, incredible world-building, and had me on the edge of my seat for pretty much the entire time. The books connect well, and you'll be glad you bought the boxed set since you'll want to read the next book as soon as you finish one. My reviews for the individual books are below. My favorite was the last one, WITCH FALL, but all of them are very good and I'd give the series as a whole at least a 4.5/5!

WITCH SONG:
Having never read anything by Amber Argyle, I wasn't really expecting too much from this book. Don't get me wrong - I was excited to start it just from the synopsis. I love books that present new ways that nature and the elements are controlled, and I was not disappointed here. There may be a few spoilers ahead, so proceed with caution.

I really enjoyed the way that Brusenna grew and matured and changed over the course of the novel. At first, I felt bad for her and definitely wanted to jump into her world and punch all of the people in the market for being mean to her simply because she was a witch. Then, she kind of turned into a brat when her mom had to leave, buy I think it was an understandable and realistic reaction for a girl her age. By the end of Witch Song though, I found myself very much liking the girl Senna had become.

I'm glad that Argyle didn't spend too much time going over the details of Senna's stay at Haven. I think there was just enough detail to get through that time in her life, but not too much that the reader is left bored and stuck in a rut. Actually, I felt that most of the book was like that.

I have a love/hate relationship with authors killing off characters that are clearly very important to the protagonist - I hate that it has to happen but I love when it's done well and the protagonist grows from the experience. Here, I think it was done very well. I was a little disappointed with how it was dealt with and then seemingly forgotten though. Senna's reaction was very believeable, but I have a hard time believeing that everyone else would be as insensitive as they came off, even if it was a logical way to be.

The story progressed well, and most characters were well developed. Having a major antagonist and several minor ones added to the urgency of Senna's quest, and I really enjoyed reading about how the witch hunters were foiled time and time again. Although there were a few parts that were iffy for me, I really enjoyed this book and am very excited for the sequel, Witch Born, to come out soon. I would give this book a 4/5, and would recommend it to YA readers looking for a tale with magic, nature, romance, and adventure.

WITCH BORN:
I'm not really sure how to explain how much I loved this book without giving away too many spoilers, but I'll try.

Argyle does a wonderful job bringing the reader back into Senna's world. Although she just recently finished saving the Haven witches from Espen, the Dark Witch, Senna is not treated like their savior at all. Many of the witches resent her and the power and beauty of her song, and the Discipline Heads refuse to tell her things that concern her. It's pretty frustrating to read about, so I can't even imagine how I would feel in that situation. She has a very quick temper and takes things out on her mother and Joshen, but it's almost like they're the only ones who will listen to her.

The world-building in Witch Song was done very well, but I think the expansion upon that world in Witch Born was even better. With the addition of one new place, Senna's world completely changes. I definitely enjoyed the introduction of the new settings and the new threat to the Haven witches. It completely made sense in the world Argyle created, but it was also unexpected. At least for me.

Although Senna definitely matured and grew over the course of the last novel, it was nothing compared to her transformation in this one. She becomes a stronger person, and makes sacrifices that I don't think she previously would have. Her decisions are based more on saving the world than saving herself and those she loves - and she also sacrifices things in order to stay with those she loves. Several times over the course of Witch Born, I felt like Argyle was trying to break my heart into a million pieces. And, if she was, it totally worked.

I loved the ending, and even though I would definitely read another book about Senna and her world, I'm glad it ended how it did. There are very few questions left unanswered, but there's just enough to make you want to learn a little bit more.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone who has read Witch Song. It's a must-read sequel! And if you haven't read Witch Song yet, but enjoy YA fantasy novels, you should go pick up a copy so you can read Witch Born! It's a fantasy mixed with mystery and romance and a whole lot of character maturation and growth. I would give this book a 4/5!

WITCH RISING:
I've been anxious to read this story since I first heard about it. I wanted to know more about Lilette, and I wanted to know about the world before Brusenna. She's the most powerful witch ever born, but we know so little about her from reading Witch Song and Witch Born. And I was not at all disappointed when I was finally able to sit down and dive into her past.

This story is fast-paced and engrossing, and I found myself not wanting to put it down or have it end. In just a few years, Lilette experiences things that most people (even the ones in her world) wouldn't have to experience. She's the lone survivor of a shipwreck, she's forced to start a new life on a strange island, and she's warned to keep her secret or face dire consequences. Oh, and she has more power than anyone else in the history of the world. So I mean, her life is pretty ridiculous.

And she still manages to persevere, and there's definitely a message in there. I think she's inspiring and strong even when she's forced to make difficult choices, and she's caring and she does whatever she thinks is necessary for the people she loves. This story was just a brief glimpse into her life, but I definitely think it really helped set up the final book in this series.

If you haven't read any of Amber's books, you're really missing out. I would definitely recommend starting with Witch Song (which is free on Amazon!), and then progressing through the series. You could start with this story though, if you want to read the books chronologically. Either way, fans of the series and readers new to the series will enjoy this story and be aching to learn more about Lilette and her life. I'm glad I read this before Witch Fall. 4/5 for sure!

WITCH FALL:
This series is one of my favorite fantasy series of all time. I love the world building, I loved Brusenna in Witch Song and Witch Born, I love the concept of the witches controlling nature with their songs, and everything else about these books. So I was so excited to get my hands on and read Witch Fall!

I've always wondered about Lilette, since we only get brief glimpses of her in the first two books. Witch Rising was a nice little introduction to her, but this book was incredible. Lilette is such an interesting character, and I am so glad we got the chance to learn about her and her sacrifices. She's the strongest witch ever born, but she's still flawed and I really appreciated that about her. I think it makes her feel more real, and more relatable, and I definitely felt for her every time her choices caused her or those around her to be hurt in one way or another.

I thought the romance in this book was also really well done. There is no instalove or any love triangles, and that was a nice departure from most YA fantasy. The relationship is complicated at times and definitely hard, but it worked for them. I also felt like the relationship was very real, since normal relationships are not without their issues. I mean, these were extraordinary circumstances and not your typical problems, but still. It was well done. Even the friendships were handled nicely, and even though things didn't always work out, at least there was a reasoning and an explanation for why. Everything is incredibly understandable.

The plot moves along quickly, but I never found myself confused or having to flip back several pages to find out what the heck just happened. It flows nicely, and jumps in time are handled appropriately. Everything is very fast-paced, and it definitely is not a book you'll want to put down! I kept picking it up whenever I had even just a couple minutes, just to find out what was next.

Even though the world is pretty well established from the first two books, it was really neat to see the world before Brusenna - a world were witches are revered and respected and not hunted. Watching the world shift was definitely really interesting, and surprising that one power-hungry witch was the cause for it.

I would totally recommend this series for anyone who enjoys YA fantasy, especially those about witches and nature. I would specifically recommend this book to anyone who has read the other Witch Song books as well. Definitely one you don't want to miss. You could even start here and then read the other two books - I don't think you'd be terribly confused. Although I would recommend reading Witch Rising before reading this book. 5/5!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Wonderful Series 14 mai 2015
Par Cherie Reich - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Amber Argyle's Witch Song sings a beautiful coming-of-age tale.

Alone, except with dog and her mother's journal, fifteen-year-old Brusenna escapes from a Witch Hunter and flees toward Haven for protection. With her mother and fellow Keepers captured by the Dark Witch, she is their last hope. Reluctantly accepting help, Brusenna travels to battle the Dark Witch. If she doesn't succeed, no one will.

Witch Song held me captive under its carefully sung spell. Argyle's prose is beautiful and vivid, creating stunning scenes and heart-wrenching emotions on the page. The type of magic in this novel will appeal to those familiar with L.E. Modesitt Jr.'s Spellsong Cycle. Witch Song's world is epic, and Argyle yanks the reader along for the journey. The complexity in the characters populates her world. Brusenna's strength and character to carry on and do what is right instead of what is easy is powerful. Like the seeds she sings to life, Brusenna blooms throughout the novel. At times, Witch Song reminded also me of what I loved about Rowling's Harry Potter series. I didn't want to stop reading it!

Adventure, romance, and magic intertwine in this young adult fantasy novel. I have a feeling that Amber Argyle's Witch Song will become much loved and remembered.

Amber Argyle’s WITCH BORN brightens the fantasy scene with fresh characters in a rich world.

Brusenna is changing since she defeated the Dark Witch and became Creator-touched. The witches either fear her or don’t understand her. Her Guardian and love will do anything to protect her, even go against her wishes. She needs Haven to be her safety, but it is anything but. Then, Brusenna learns there are more witches out there, and she’s the only one who can stop them from destroying everything she’s trying to save.

WITCH BORN hooked me within ten percent of the novel and hasn’t really let me go since I finished reading it. Argyle took her world from WITCH SONG and expanded upon it tenfold. The details and writing are lush and beautiful. The plot is fast-paced, and the characters are well-developed. Brusenna, the main character, comes to life with her choices. This novel excels at being realistic in emotions and actions amongst a fantasy landscape with magic. I believed every word.

I didn’t want to leave the world from WITCH BORN by Amber Argyle. If I still role-played, I’d be all over creating one from WITCH BORN or writing fan fiction based in Argyle’s world.

Lilette's world goes up in ashes, but can she find a way to rise from them in Amber Argyle's Witch Rising? This novella is an intense and emotional story. Lilette's growth from never wanting to use her spells again and coming back to who she tugs on my heartstrings. The lessons she learns will make her stronger, and I'm looking forward to reading the forthcoming Witch Fall. Witch Rising is a great prequel and beautifully written.

Lilette must fight the battles she can win and retreat from those she cannot in Amber Argyle's Witch Fall. A heart-breaking story, this prequel to Witch Song shows the path the Witches took toward their downfall. Argyle knows how to torture her poor characters, and Lilette receives the brunt of the heartache. I loved Jolin's quotes at each chapter. Argyle's prose and world-building skills are exquisite. Argyle is quickly becoming one of my favorite fantasy authors, and I highly recommend Witch Fall.
