Even Witches.

Supreme in their dominion over seasons, storms, and sea, the Witches have forgotten the unmatched destructiveness of mankind. And among the weapons men seek are the magical songs of the Witches.

My Review

I really enjoy reading books about witches and have always wanted to read the Witch Song series. The covers are gorgeous, the plots interesting, and the characters all challenged with saving the world.

I got into Witch Fall pretty quickly. I was curious about Lilette's story and how she came to be who she was in Witch Song. It seems like she isn't in control of anything in her life in the beginning, but then it gets even worse. I didn't like how easily the witches were controlled at certain parts. They have all this power, but for some reason that doesn't have much sway sometimes. Some of the battle scenes went a little long for me in parts, but otherwise were all done well. I knew who would be the romantic interest almost immediately, but of course nothing was easy for the hero and heroine.

There is a lot going on in this story and a lot of history to tell. This isn't one of those feel-good kind of books. There is heartbreak and people die and nothing is easy. Lilette is also coming into her own and finding who she is and the choices she will make. She isn't always strong nor does she always do as she should. I did want to see a little more strength from Han and Lilette in spots, and definitely from the witches.

I liked the different perspective on witches this series portrays; that they sing to work their magic. I liked that the characters weren't perfect, that things got a little messy, which in war and real life is normally the case. Definitely a good read for those who enjoy stories about witches.

Content: Violence, innuendo, concubines, making out.
