Review: Witch Born by Amber Argyle

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?

I can't even begin to tell you how excited I was to be able to read this book.  (think happy dance, happy.)  I really enjoyed the first book, Witch Song, and I've been waiting for this second book.  

As much as I enjoyed Witch Song, this book, Witch Born completely blew me out of the water.  I LOVED it.  Honest to goodness, love.  The writing is beautiful and it put all kinds of gorgeous pictures in my mind.  The cover of this book is just perfect for one of the best most beautiful scenes in the book.  Well, at least I thought it was.  :)  If I had a list for "cover love"  this book would be on it.

Brusenna (Senna) is a character I admire and genuinely like.  She has strength of character and she tries to do good with the power and talents that have been entrusted to her.  Senna just keeps trying no matter who tries to tell her otherwise.  It's that resiliency that I just love.  And Joshen?  Yeah.  He's a hero.  There were so many great characters in this book.  I always love a book with strong cords of loyalty in the midst of deceit.  This one really pulled that off.

I got so worked up over this book.  Seriously, I was all tense and turning pages like a madwoman.  The last third of the book left me exhausted.  :)  I was getting really worried there for awhile but I'm happy to say that I made it.  To the end.  And I am happy.

I just love Amber Argyle's writing style.  I hope she is madly writing at this very moment because I'll need something new from her very soon.

Love, love, love this book.  LOVE.  Today is release day!  Go and find this book.  (or check out the Clean Reads Giveaway Hop that starts tomorrow, or ahem, later today, and enter here to win a copy!)
