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.

 

My Thoughts

 

Coming from a place of indifference prior to reading the short story, Witch Rising #2.5, I really felt like this books wasn’t going to be for me. After reading the short story I couldn’t stop and immediately picked this one up! I thought after reading the first two books that I already had a good idea of what Lilette’s story was about, but I was wrong, so very wrong.

This book took my emotions through the wringer! Even with knowing her final fate I realized Lilette’s journey is what mattered. There was so much that wasn’t in the previous books and so much that I learned about the witches that I found myself flying through the pages. At the end I sighed as tears filled my eyes. The perfect ending to this particular story but do I want it to stop, hell no!

There are so many great characters in this story also. Where as in the first book I didn’t really feel connected, here I felt like I really got to know the characters and what their plights were. And there are so many great secondary characters!

Although Lilette is a force to be reckoned with and quick witted, I think Jolin was my favorite. And instead of having chapter names having a little bit from at the beginning of each chapter Jolin seemed brilliant.

The plot was fantastic. I feel like it had more emotion than in the first few books and it really drew me in. I wanted to know what was going to happen next and couldn’t wait to turn each page. And then there were some passages that just gave me chills…

Her name was Brussenna.

In short… fabulous writing, amazing characters, beautifully written plot. I am only sad now because I believe this was the last of the four.
