Publisher's Summary

There’s only one thing you really need to know about the world I come from: The witch council is as archaic and backward in their ways as they are powerful.

So, when they arrange for me to marry the most powerful warlock in the world so that I can give them magic babies, I do what any sensible 24-year old would do.

I run. Or, at least, I try to. Turns out, when push comes to shove, they’re willing to bargain on the whole marriage thing.

To keep my life the way I like it, I just have to do one little thing: claim my powers. Easier said than done when the unruly power awakened inside of me is a magic that shouldn’t exist.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, my mystic meant to guide me through the change is the very warlock I was supposed to marry. Now, I’m faced with another bargain, and this time, there’s no getting out of it.

Train with Callan and learn how to control my magic...or face the council’s wrath.

One of these things is sure to end in my demise. The other? I give it a 50-50 shot.

Rebel Witch is the first book in the House of Magic series, an enemies-to-lovers paranormal romance with humor and some steam. It contains a strong alpha male who protects and respects his woman.

If you can't get enough of Jaymin Eve, Avery Song, Leia Stone, Kel Carpenter, Lucia Ashta, Linsey Hall, and Sadie Moss, then buy now because you won't want to miss this one!

Great and fun urban fantasy witch story

I love Urban Fantasy, it is definitely my favorite genre. I love the genre because it is action-packed, full of interesting worlds and characters, and is typically a quick read. I like short fun books. Lately that's all the effort I can put into reading, so I love a great romp through magical worlds.

Urban Witch is the first I read from this author, and I'm already a fan. It was short (the audiobook was just under 7 hours) and built up just enough interest in this world for me that I might be adding the rest of the series to my endless TBR list. Thank you Goodreads for keeping track for me.

I liked the heroine Marnie right away. She's spunky, and super into independence.  I like a strong female lead. Unfortunately, she's a witch. And in her world, she is promised to Callan as an arranged marriage, and she has to do what she's told. Ew. 

She tries to get out, she does. She even makes a deal to finally get the chance to leave once she does the ceremony accepts her powers. But that was too good of an offer to be true - and most likely a set up from her mom. She turns out to be one powerful and off-the-charts witch. These kind of powers are unheard of in their world. So, well, oops, you can't leave now lady sorry. Now she has to learn to master her abilities because she's kind of a scary thing.

So her fiance becomes her mentor, and there are definitely sparks between them. Yet, due to the forced arrangement, she pushes him away. Marnie is so stubborn about the whole not having control of her life thing. There are some smexy moments between them despite Marnie's reluctance to accept her feelings. Callan is pretty much a sweet guy wanting this girl he's really into and agreed to marry, to be into him. And as her mentor/teacher, he goes above and beyond in protecting her from herself.

They discover just how powerful she is, what she's capable of with zero training. She gets herself in a hell of a bind to save a friend, but the potential of her being something amazing cannot be denied. 

The book is a great start to a series but also short. I would have liked a bit more explanation into the magical world, into their customs, some more background of the relationships between characters. But I feel this will come in future books as we continue to get a taste of the world.

The audio was great! It was my first audio narrated by Elle Sonali and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'll have to look up some other books she narrated. 

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Rebel Witch

I really enjoyed this book. I loved that the FMC stood up for herself and what she wanted. The storyline was great and very entertaining. I really liked the different colors of magic. Can't wait to see what will happen next. Elle Sonali did a amazing job narrating.

This book rocked

Rebel Witch was awesome. Marnie is a witch and the witch council wants her to marry, but when she tries to run they make a deal, accept her powers and train them with Callan the man she was supposed to marry. I really loved Callan alot and cant wait to see what will grow between him and Marnie

So much fun

This book sucked me in. I loved the world backstory with the council of witches and the history behind it. The characters were a force to be reckoned with, and they had me cheering along the way. I can't wait to read the second in the series!

Great start!! Fast paced listen.

I felt like the narrator, Elle did a fabulous job portraying Marnie and the other characters. The story was enjoyable to listen to and I felt like her narration was good as it kept me intrigued.
Marnie is the main female character in this book. She is a strong willed character. Which is understandable. She wants absolutely nothing to do with her coven but her mother made some promises to her and in the end Marnie had no choice but to accept her coven with its antiquated rules/laws. This was a slow burn romance. Which is completely fine by me. I absolutely loved the storyline and I liked how Marnie doesn’t care much for the coven and how she truly cares for humans and those relationships she has cultivated. Callan seems like he’s a perfect man but how perfect is he really?

This was an enjoyable book. I really liked the author’s take on witches. I’m anxious to see how the rest of the series unfolds.

A nice series debut with a nice plot

Antiquated traditions will be challenged. A compromise will be reached. But will Marnie be able to keep her end of the bargain? For what it’s worth, will the Council keep their end of the bargain?

After all, instead of running away Marnie has accepted to stay and enter into her powers on the conditions that 1-she can choose who to marry, 2-she won’t have to use her witchy powers if she doesn’t want to and 3- she can keep her human best friend .

Arranged marriage is out of the question for her. The only problem is that the very man she refused to marry -even though he is hot, and respectful and the most eligible bachelor- is also her mentor.

This book is the first of a series and is a slow burn. I enjoyed listening to it even though I would have wanted more in terms of connection. I wanted to see Callan and Marnie out of their mentor/protegé relationship. It would have given more intensity to their relation. I hope to see more of that in the next installment.

I loved this book. It's a great start to a series that has so much potential. I liked that Marnie stays true to her character's principles even after she awakens her badass powers. She still wants a simple life and is not tempted (yet?) by the standing her power could potentially offer her. I can't wait to find out what happens next and to get more of my Callan fix.

Elle Sonali does an amazing job narrating this book and helped bring the story to life.

Absolutely loved this book.

This is the first book I've listened to from this author. I was really impressed. The story was great and the narration was spot on. Marnie comes from a family of witches. The witches council are very behind the times and archaic and when Mari finds out she's facing an arranged marriage she decides to leave and give up being a witch. But her mother talks her into doing the ceremony to unlock her powers. This is when her bigger problems begin. I can't say too much more without giving away too much. But I really enjoyed this book. If you love the secret circle and other witch books you'll love this. I need book 2 now though. I received a free copy of this book from the author but the review is my own opinion.

Rebel Witch

Overall this book was good, the world building and characters were believable, but FMC Marnie was too bratty for my liking, and took the teenage rebellious attitude too far at 24, and that ruined it for me. The narration by Elle Sonali was very good, and a joy to listen to. I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

Fab start

I received this book free for an honest review.

Marnie wants nothing to do with magic and the marriage the council have arranged to Callan and is about to skip town when her mother turns up with any offer. She tells her to claim her magic and then she can go where she wants as long as she never uses it but things don’t quite turn out like that when her magic turns out to be pink .
I enjoyed listening to this and love the fact Marnie won’t do as the council tells her but when they threaten her friend she gives in and starts to listen.

magic

so the main character wants nothing to do with the rules of the witch council she made a deal which get broken because of the power she ends up with, Every which way she gets thrown into situations where she is pushed to being around the guy she is "betrothed" to.
