A ship burns, sinking into the dark sea. There is only one survivor—a child hunted for the power of her song. Hidden away on an isolated island, Lilette buries her power deep, convinced it caused the deaths of those she loves.
But she can’t run from who she is. And when her secret is revealed, the only thing that can save her is her song. It’s time to rise up and become what she was always meant to be: the most powerful witch ever born.
Being completely honest I was confused that book two, Witch Song, gives all the information about Lilette but then book three is about Lilette’s story. I was feeling like I didn’t want to both picking up the third since I pretty much knew what happened with her. Why waste my time when I know the outcome? It’s like reading a spoiler, I felt almost betrayed!
Then this book, # 2.5 Witch Rising, starts from her beginning. I went from not being curious about Lilette and figuring that I pretty much knew what happened to her to being very curious about HOW those things actually came about.
If you’ve read the first two books you may find yourself in the same predicament but this book truly does start from her beginning. She’s eight when this starts and by the end I was left wondering what in the world was she going to do! She has gotten into a very serious situation and I don’t see a way out for her.
In short, this short story has inspired me to continue on my journey with this series. I am dreading what’s going to happen but at the same time I know that Lilette wants her story told!
If you’ve read books one and two, read this and you are going to promptly want book three!
