The world is changing. Once, Witch Song controlled everything from the winds to the shifting of the seasons--but not anymore. All the Witches are gone, taken captive by a traitor. All but Brusenna. As the echo of their songs fade, the traitor grows stronger. Now she is coming for Brusenna. Her guardian has sworn to protect her, but even he can't stop the Dark Witch. Somehow, Brusenna has to succeed where every other Witch has failed. Find the traitor. Fight her. Defeat her. Because if Brusenna doesn't, there won't be anything left to save.

Goodreads Summary

First off, I received a copy from Amber Argyle as a giveaway and I was so happy!!!  I loved this book and now I'll tell you why you will too.
Brusenna isn't the most well-liked girl in the village.  In fact, everyone appears spiteful and afraid of her.  Brusenna is a witch, more specifically, a very powerful witch who doesn't know the depth of her own powers yet.  She meets one of the only other remaining witches in town and finds out that many witches are being held in chains and that she might be integral to their escape.  The evil antagonist, the Dark Witch, used to be the leader...until she wanted more and more power.  Brusenna's mother leaves in an attempt to help fight the Dark Witch.  It isn't long before Brusenna leaves as well, with only a dog at her side.  She finds help in the town's sheriff and his brother and nephew.  Joshen, the nephew, becomes the potential love interest.  Brusenna must face dangers and discover new qualities of herself and her past that she never knew she had to take down the Dark Witch.
Brusenna is a great main character.  She is sweet, charming, and kind.  The reader will root for her throughout the novel.  Joshen is protective, caring, and mature.  He is the perfect counterpart for Brusenna.  There are quite a few interesting secondary characters that the reader will love to get to know as well.
This book moved fast!  The events are very fast-paced, no chance for boredom there.  The ending was perfect with a little twist thrown in.  The author writes very fluidly, the reader will find that the transitions are tight and work well together.  This book is recommended for young adults/teens who enjoy fantasy with a touch of mystery and romance.
