The House Witch: A Humorous Romantic Fantasy

Updated: Mar 13

My Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Spice Level: ️ 0 out of 5 🌶️


A heartwarming and humorous blend of fantasy, romance, and mystery featuring a witch with domestic powers and the royal household he serves . . . dinner.

When Finlay Ashowan joins the staff of the King and Queen of Daxaria, he’s an enigma. No one knows where he comes from or how he came to be where he is, which suits Fin just fine. He’s satisfied simply serving as the royal cook, keeping nosy passersby out of his kitchen, and concocting some truly uncanny meals.

But Fin’s secret identity doesn’t stay hidden for long. After all, it’s not every day a house witch and his kitten familiar, Kraken, take to meddling in imperial affairs. As his powers are gradually discovered by the court, Fin finds himself involved in a slew of intrigues: going head-to-head with knights with less-than-chivalrous intentions, helping to protect the pregnant queen, fending off the ire of the royal mage, and uncovering a spy in the castle. And that’s only the beginning—because Fin’s past is catching up with him just as his love life is getting complicated . . .

Filled with fascinating characters, courtly intrigue, political machinations, delicious cuisines, cuddly companions, magical hijinks, and will-they-won’t-they romance, The House Witch is the first in a captivating new series, guaranteed to satisfy the tastes of any reader.

My Thoughts

I - and I cannot stress this enough - absolutely adored this book. It was laugh out loud funny with wonderful world building and memorable characters. Fin is an absolute gem of a main character. I will admit, I don't read many books that have a male main character (nothing against men, I just tend to read more romance books and they typically have female main characters) so I wasn't sure what to expect, but I absolutely adored Fin. He is wonderfully witty but definitely stubborn and at times a bit rash.

I thought the story and powers were original and I crushed this book in maybe 2 days. This book 1 in a trilogy, and the entire series does not disappoint. While there is romance in the book, there is no smut. (Just like to call that out for my smut girlies out there ;) )
