About the Series: Witch Song
A rich and compelling fairytale of magic and dark controlling forces that gives a unique twist to witchcraft and witches . . . Argyle's ability to create a world in which the power of song is used to create magic, is not only masterful but brilliantly clever. ~Suz, Book Reviewer

For centuries, a war has been fought—one that has nearly wiped out the Witches. Without their magical songs, the seasons are breaking apart and the boundaries of nature have splintered.

Two women are all that stand between the world and utter destruction. One must pave the way, the other must take up the fight, and both must choose betwee

Review by: Babel Tower on Dec. 26, 2013 :
I am awed by the sheer intensity of emotion that can be found in this very short story. Forty pages full of drama and pain. This tale tells about the making of tragedy and revenge, the making of a reluctant witch who cannot hide from her power. Lilette has barely escaped from death along with her parents. Betrayal plunges her into an even worse nightmare and not even her voice can save those who fight for her. It is the mingling of words and music that become a powerful, deadly weapon sought after by many. Despite all she's lost, despite the kindness of one wise stranger, she grows into a woman who yearns for freedom and family. No fate stays dormant forever, thus tragedy strikes again but she vows to prevail.
I loved it! From the very first page, this story is powerfully written and emotional. It promises such a great world that I will definitely explore in the author's longer novels. I feel very drawn to a power harnessed to a singing voice that runs on the female side. Lilette suffers deeply and becomes riddled with strong convictions and hurts. I was genuinely moved when so many bad things happened to her family, and how heart-wrenching it was for her. Also later on when Lilette connects with someone else who has suffered greatly and offers his help knowing all the time how it will all end. So beautiful and sad at the same time. I'm sure there is a lot of adventure, hardship and passion lying in Lilette's future. The best ingredients for a great story, no doubt.

Review by: Janet Padowsky on Dec. 12, 2013 :
I would definitely recommend this story to people who like fantasy with dramatic scenes and intense storylines. The emotions were very strong in this book and a driving force that keeps you reading. I gave it 4/5 because I personally enjoy light-hearted stories more, but that is only a personal preference and was a great read regardless!
