Publisher's Summary

A young woman navigates a web of politics, assassination attempts, and romance in the first book of a new series set in the world of the House Witch trilogy.

Katarina Ashowan was not made for courtly life. Sure, her father is the famous house witch of Daxaria so she was raised among majestic castles, proper manners, and royal expectations. But Kat is also a mutated witch whose power aligns predominantly with fire. She’s more comfortable riding horses or learning to fight than she is making polite conversation and wearing fancy dresses. Which is why her upcoming assignment—serving her best friend, Alina, the soon-to-be crowned Troivackian queen—is anything but ideal.

Even worse, Kat is forced to make the long journey from Daxaria to Troivack with Alina’s extremely irksome brother, Eric, the crown prince of Daxaria. Kat and the formerly missing prince are constantly at each other’s throats—until, that is, they begin to form an unexpected kinship . . . with perhaps something more flickering beneath the surface. Now Kat must contend with the strictures of Troivackian court, mysterious assassination attempts, and her unsettling new feelings for Eric, all as her fiery powers are becoming harder and harder to control.

In this fast-paced, humorous, and romantic start to the Burning Witch trilogy, the same charming magical mayhem that wooed fans of the House Witch series gets a brightly burning new star in Katarina Ashowan.

The first volume of a new spin-off of the hit romantic-fantasy series that has more than a million views on Royal Road—now available on Kindle, Kindle Unlimited, and Audible!

Another great book in the series

A bit less humorous than the previous books in the series but still a great listen. Can’t wait for the next one.

I have to wait till January for the next book?!

Those of you who've read the House Witch series will love this book. Katerina Asowen's struggles with getting used to Troivakian culture, while accompanying Princess Alina to her new home, prove both maddening and hilarious given her willful nature .

She also has to work to protect Alina from hostile Troivakian factions and to have her useful skills recognised and put to good use in a highly sexist culture. All while dealing with the frustrating Crowned Prince Eric of Daxaria, who has finally returned after a 4 year estrangement from his family.

Lastly, I was pleased to hear the same narrator as the House Witch series, despite the main character being female. There are no weird change of pronunciation or character voices on this new series!

Beautiful extension of the series

The series retains its humour and strong character development while introducing darker themes and bigger foes. Looking forward to future installments.

I can't wait for the next one!

Great story with strong female characters. Not as funny as the first series but still had its comedic moments. Unfortunately I looked up the order to listen to this author's books and the Princess of Potential wasn't mentioned in the list. Now I really wish I'd read that before this because I know so many of the outcomes of that book.

The narration is perfect, writing style is really easy to take in yet brilliantly descriptive and the characters are relatable. I was disappointed when it finished!

Burning brighter

Juxtaposition of an authentic feminine character in a misogynistic society who just happens to have her own wellspring of power and fabulously fun ways. The character development really stood out and the plot got more interesting ; the references and connections to the house witch series completed an endearing story - looking forward to the sequel.

Nothing like the House Witch

I was heartbroken as I so enjoyed The House Witch series. It was full of humour, hope and camaraderie. The series left me feeling happy and hopeful. The Burning witch is the exact opposite. I tried skipping chapters hoping it would improve but it didn't. I was sad and depressed and had lost hope in humanity, all that from a silly book. I had to turn it off and go back and listen to the House Witch again.
