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?

Review: 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.

Five Bookworms = I loved it!
