The world is changing. Once, Witch Song controlled everything from the winds to the shifting of the seasons-but not anymore. All the Witches are gone, taken captive by a traitor. All but Brusenna. As the echo of their songs fades, the traitor grows stronger. Now she is coming for Brusenna. Her guardian has sworn to protect her, but even he can’t stop the Dark Witch. Somehow, Brusenna has to succeed where every other Witch has failed. Find the traitor. Fight her. Defeat her. Because if Brusenna doesn’t, there won’t be anything left to save. – Goodreads
My Opinion: The novel was interesting. It was interesting to watch how Brusenna went from being so afraid and timid to getting some self confidence and being able to fight the Dark Witch. It was interesting watching how she learns about being a witch and how she learns to fight. The biggest transformation I think is her realizing that she is able to do something about the way that she is treated and learns to be confident in herself.
The plot is also pretty cool. I really liked the idea of the “unknown” evil witch, even though we know her name and who is supposedly is, Brusenna doesn’t personally know what the witch is capable of and what she herself is capable of doing. I loved how Senna Leander how to do so many things without the hemlock others after the knowledge being kept from her for so long but the fact that she picks it up so quickly is really cool.
The ending of the book was also really cool and the “who” that she meets at the end of the novel is pretty important and as I have read the second book in the series I already know its significance, I really liked the way it was tied in and kept the mystery going.
Overall: 4 out of 5
