Witch Rising (Witch Song)
*A novelette*

A fast read filled to the brim with action, heartache, and love.


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.

"Lilette's world goes up in ashes, but can she find a way to rise from them in Amber Argyle's Witch Rising? This novella is an intense and emotional story. Lilette's growth from never wanting to use her spells again and coming back to who she tugs on my heartstrings. The lessons she learns will make her stronger, and I'm looking forward to reading the forthcoming Witch Fall. Witch Rising is a great prequel and beautifully written." ~Cherie Reich, author of Reborn

What if Ponce de Leon was right, and there truly exists a fountain of youth somewhere? Would you take a drink? Indeed, everything you've heard is true, but only half-true.

Once a sip is taken, the waters within come calling, awakening a need within those who have had a drink to kill so the water can replenish the stores of life giving power flowing from the fountain. But there is a safeguard--a family who has passed down guardianship of the water from generation to generation. Guardian tells the story of Norman, who struggles to come into his new role and ultimately makes a decision that will alter the course for those across the generations who have taken a drink from the deadly spring.
