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.
Witch Song was a fun read from start to finish. I was hooked on it from the very beginning due to its high fantasy/mysterious type of vibe. I also really enjoyed the fact that it was about witches. I love witches. I will read anything with them. And for some reason they seem to be lacking in the YA genre. I think that this book is going to be a big hit for many readers.
I did end up thinking that Witch Song ended up reading more like a middle grade book than a YA book. The storyline and characters came across as very young. Personally, I would have enjoyed for of a mature feel to the book. However, it was a fun read. It’s definitely something that my 4th and 5th graders would absolutely love.
Overall, I did enjoy this book. I thought it was cute and had a lot of adventure. Would I continue the whole series? I’m on the fence about that because I’ve been drifting away from MG titles. But I would recommend this one!

With the magic of their songs, the Witches control the seasons, the storms, even the sea. Secure in their supremacy, they have forgotten the unmatched destructiveness of mankind. For the world has begun to covet their power, seeing them as weapons to be controlled instead of rulers worthy of obeisance.
Born of witches but raised among their enemy, Lilette searches for a way to heal the rift between mankind and the witches. But it may be too late to save either. For if there is one thing Lilette has come to know for certain, it’s that all things fall.
Witch Fall is the prequel to Witch Song. It was like reading two completely different stories. I couldn’t even tell you that they were set in the same world. I didn’t like this one as much as Witch Song, but I did enjoy it. Again, I thought that it was a little too middle grade for my personal taste. However, I really think this book is going to be a big hit for younger teens.
My favorite part about Witch Fall was Lilette’s journey. I loved the adventure and power that this book brought to the table. These books are set in such a magical universe that it’s bound to capture a readers attention. I was a really big fan of the attention to detail and suspense.
I did have a problem with how the women were treated in this book. I understand WHY that was happening in the book, but it was very difficult for me to read at times. If anyone has any triggers about this topic, then maybe this book wouldn’t be for you. It wasn’t anything major, but it did upset me in a few spots.
Overall, I enjoyed it yet again. I liked Lilette’s character a lot more than Brusenna’s character which made this book a little easier to get through. Again, I would recommend this whole entire series to younger readers. The adventure and lovable characters are going to appeal to them.
