The House Witch
The House Witch | Delemhach
20 posts | 8 read | 2 reading | 12 to read
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. The first volume of the hit romantic-fantasy series-with more than a million views on Royal Road-now available on Kindle, Kindle Unlimited, and Audible!

If you loved the vibes of Legends & Lattes and/or The Very Secret Society of Irregular Witches you will love this as well. It's a cozy fantasy with whimsy, magic, and comedy. All the good things! It's a bit long (658 pgs), and that is why I was fluctuating between a 4-5 star read. But I went with 5 stars because of how delightful of an escape I felt it gave me. I will definitely be reading the next one. Def noticing a theme of my 2024 fav reads!

Did I read somewhere that someone has an online hack to help keep word count for word search points or within kindle?! Definitely not within my usual range, but I am loving it!! So many witch-es🤣🧙🏼‍♀️#hhc #scarathlon #

dabbe Kindle will do the word count for you. You can also use Google Books. (edited) 6mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (4.5/5)

I‘m a sucker for cozy, heartwarming, and funny stories, and “The House Witch” managed to have all three. I really enjoyed the characters and I can‘t wait to continue onto the next novel in the series.

Q84 Looks like another to add to the list. 7mo

“The loyal citizens of the kingdom of Daxaria described their homeland as a lovable mess.”

That may describe the book, too 🙄

I picked this up as a Kindle deal, and, five chapters in, I‘m just not sure. It‘s billed as a humorous, romantic fantasy. The style strikes me as rather amateurish, but the story is just interesting enough to keep me reading.

"The loyal citizens of the kingdom of Daxaria described their homeland as a lovable mess." Me too Daxaria. Me too. ?

Next on Kindle: Finlay Ashowan joins the staff of the King & Queen of Daxaria. He becomes the royal cook and cooks up uncanny meals, trying to keep people out of his kitchen and hiding that he's a witch. When his magic is discovered, he begins meddling in royal affairs, but soon his past begins to catch up with him. I've heard this is a cozy book, which is what I'm needing right now.

Ever start reading a book and it's loaded with so many hot words, popular themes that it feels like it was written by AI? Admittedly it had me laughing quite a bit at times as it‘s full of sarcasm, cursing and cheap pot shots. What can I say, I'm a girl of simple tastes lol. But seriously, I wouldn't be surprised to find out that no actual humans were involved in writing this.
Book #13 3.5⭐️ Soft pick. Don't know if I'll read the next.

Read-y_Picker Seriously. Anyone who's read this book... As I was nearing the end I was wondering how one could get AI to write a sequel in a series after wrapping up a first story. Then I wondered if the series was written as one looooooooong story and then just cut up and maybe adjusted a bit for polishing. And THEN this book had no ending! NONE AT ALL! I think I rest my case. 1y
Clwojick Okay but your review has me SO intrigued, and now I have to read it! Reminds me of the Hallmark Christmas movie script written by an AI.🤣 1y
Read-y_Picker @Clwojick please do! I‘d like to know if you agree or if I‘m just nuts😂 1y

Just starting this one as a light in-between read to top off January. I‘m only on page 2 But seriously what have I gotten myself into?! A‘s algorithm is pushing this book quite a bit. Anyone else jump on this bandwagon? It‘s going to be a wild ride!

“Goodbye, Kip. May we never have to speak again.” “You weird lookin‘ bastard, I hope you s&@! bricks!” came Kip‘s angry response at the fellow‘s back.

162 books in 2022! It's a new record for me. My goal had been 200, but I'm okay with where I ended up.

Happy New Year all!

A charming, easy read that had me rolling around in giggles at times.

And everyone needs a cat like Kraken. 😻
