Overview

Witch Fall by Amber Argyle

Lilette has been kidnapped. An evil prince schemes to graft the enchantment of her lineage into the royal line. Desperate to escape the vicious tongues and poisoned blades of the prince's harem, Lilette blunders into an unlikely pair of allies--a visiting witch and the prince's own brother. Together, they hatch a desperate escape plan.

But beyond the palace gates, another danger looms. An enemy has been searching for Lilette since her disappearance years before. An enemy bent on forever silencing the magic of Lilette's songs, as they silenced her mother and sister's before her. An enemy who would see all the witches fall.

"Amber Argyle's WITCH FALL is a lush, complex, and heartrending tale whose action, romance, tragedy, and triumph is sure to delight fantasy lovers." ~ Kate Avery Ellison, author of The Frost Chronicles.

Though Witch Fall works best in concert with the rest of the series, it can be read as a standalone.

'Witch Fall' is the third book in the Witch Song series, but it's a prequel to the others and can be read as a stand-alone. The book introduces the reader to leading lady Lilette - a witch who is an outcast within her own kind. The Witches have become incredibly powerful and relish in controlling things like the weather, the seasons, and the sea itself. Their pride has grown enough to blind them to mankind - and the fact that they want the magic songs of the Witches for themselves, to use as weapons against one another. Lilette seems to be the only witch who sees the truth of what the Witches have become, along with the impending war with the humans. Will she be able to convince the witches to help her fight the humans before it's too late? Within pages of starting this book, I found myself drawn into Lilette's world and her struggles. I ended up reading the entire book in just about one sitting because I couldn't tear myself away from what was happening. I loved Lilette as the main character - she's strong, smart, down to earth, and compassionate. She has her weaknesses and flaws as well, which only made her more realistic and easy for me to identify with. The plot was fantastic and I thoroughly enjoyed learning as much as I could about the Witches, their world and history, along with the world around them. The author did a wonderful job describing everything with great detail and vivid imagery - so that I felt like I was inside the book beside Lilette the entire time. There's a lot that goes on in the book, which introduces a new reader to the characters, world, and overall plot to the series - or it gives readers who have read the first two books a deeper look into these places, people, and histories. I never felt confused or overwhelmed with the information, which I believe to be a great asset for readers new to the series. The writing was fast paced but not rushed - it flowed naturally through each scene. Overall, this was a fantastic prequel (or third book) in the series and I highly recommend it for readers who are familiar with the books or those who wish to start them. Fans of fantasy and paranormal fiction will definitely want to pick this one up! Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

I was at a slight disadvantage than some when it came to reading this book. Honestly, I have not read the other books in this series. Don't let this sway you, possibly a reader of the series or maybe a newbie to it like me, because the author did a wonderful job setting up the book so that anyone could read it and not feel like they were missing out on anything. What is nice is that this is a prequel to the series, so I can hop into it and just read the rest of the books. The blurb, if anything immediate, I would ask the author to expand on this. There are scenes, destinations, subjects, etc in this book that normally I find a turn off in reading and a blurb that works for a new reader would have probably given some of that information in it. This is no way is a negative look at the book, writing nor author, it just would be a bit helpful. I enjoyed the quote before each chapter. They give the reader an insight of the characters, a foreshadowing of things to come, a sense of what had passed and are well thought out and placed. The quotes from Jolin are not weak, but are strong, full of emotion and carry the story on another level. Lillette...she had me fascinated with her from the beginning. Head strong, conniving, used common sense, knew when to push, when to pull and when to just give in. I could visualize her as an actual person and could follow along with her. The way the author set up the scenes and visual description of not only the characters but of the surroundings just pulled me right into the story and stunned me with just how raw and real it all felt. The story also gave you a true sense of the downfall of the witches power. I recommend this to anyone who likes a good fantasy read without all the really out there fantasy stuff thrown in. I will be going back to this series and reading it through from the start. Amber Argyle has truly created a story that will keep you enthralled and ready for more.

<i>Witch Fall</i> is the prequel to Witch Song, showing the witches path toward their downfall.  Tortured characters, heart breaking choices and facing insurmountable odds we are pulled into this magical story.    Lilette struggles to find a way to heal the breach between humans and witches, we get a front row seat to her plight.  Argyle gives us an original story and the back ground for her past works in the Witch Song series.
