Overview

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Thea Harrison comes the first in a new spellbinding trilogy…

Power can change a person…

For months Molly Sullivan endures the inexplicable: electrical surges, car breakdowns, visions. She even wonders if she might be the cause… and wonders if she might be crazy. Then she discovers her husband has cheated on her. Again. Now Molly realizes she is a newly awakening witch and a woman pushed over the edge.

Revenge can shape a person…

Josiah Mason is a Powerful witch and the leader of a secret coven with a shared goal: to destroy an ancient enemy who has ruined many lives. Josiah lost years to this man, and his sole focus is revenge. He’s prepared for every contingency—except encountering a beautiful new witch who understands nothing of the immense Power building within her or the attraction she wields over him.

Danger can bring them together…

When divorcing her husband, Molly uncovers a dangerous secret he’s willing to kill to protect. She turns to Josiah for help, and they discover a connection between Molly’s husband and Josiah’s enemy.

As they work together, a spark ignites between them that threatens to become an inferno. But Molly is done compromising herself for any man, and Josiah’s mission is his top priority. And the enemy is cunning, cruel, and drawing ever closer.

As the danger escalates, so does the tension between them. Is a lasting relationship possible? Will either of them live long enough to try?

I loved this book. It's so refreshing to read about heroes/heroines that are a bit older. This book is action packed, emotional, and grips you right from the start. I can't wait for the next one!

I wasn’t sure what to expect for this one.  Because even though the characters are set in the same world as the Elder Races, they aren’t shifters, vampires, fey. They are Witches.  Not only that our lead character Molly doesn’t even know she is a Witch. That is until she discovers her husband has been cheating on her and everything comes to a head, and her power wakes up in a colossal way. Josiah, who in my honest opinion is an arrogant, self-righteous prick, is a powerful witch who was there the night Molly’s powers woke up.  He spends a good portion of the story trying to manipulate her into doing his bidding. I honestly thought he was going to turn out to be the bad guy at first. The story has a suspenseful plot and danger.  The interaction with Molly and Josiah were so dramatic and just full of needless arguments that older adults shouldn’t be having. Their characters felt like they should have been in there 20’s with as emotional as they were reacting to each other. Overall I enjoyed the story, and I am looking forward to continuing the series and seeing where it leads. I am giving American Witch 4 Boundless Stars.

What I liked: American Witch was engaging from the start. Mary was easy to identify with, and her decisions were reasonable. I liked that the main couple had a moment of passion, but did not immediately disclose eternal love for each other. They recognized their shared desire did not guarantee a relationship would be the best for them under current circumstances. Experiencing Mary coming into her witch powers was tense and exciting. The big battle at the end of the story shows Mary, Josiah, and other coven members are going to be a formidable force. I cannot wait to see where the rest of the American Witch series goes. What I didn't like: Honestly, the plot mechanics used to get Mary out of her current life was predictable to a point. The conflict with her husband, and the repercussions of their break up, I saw coming. I will say that in the end, that predictability did not matter. Watching the characters develop, and their priorities change overshadowed what little I didn't like.

What a fantastically fun read! I devoured this book—twice! It was a delight to read about a character who is such a smart cookie. And one of the best beginning lines: “the roaring in her ears was the sound of all the balls she’d been juggling for years that were now crashing at her feet.” Molly is awakening in many ways: realizing her marriage has been a sham, struggling with the strange events happening within and around her, and experiencing inexplicable intense chemistry with Josiah Mason. But she handles it all with smart choices, reasoned thinking softened by emotion, and takes her own needs off the back burner for the first time in her life. I loved following Molly’s emergence into her new life and was only sorry that the book wasn’t longer. I’m looking forward to more emerging about Molly as the series progresses.

Molly Sullivan has been pushed over the edge by her cheating husband and suddenly all the inexplicable things that has been happening around her: electrical surges, car breakdowns, visions start to make more sense as she realizes that she has power and it is awakening. A powerful witch, Josiah Mason is the leader of a secret coven with a shared goal, to destroy an ancient enemy. He prepared for every contingency – except encountering a beautiful witch with not understanding of the immense Power building inside of her. Uncovering a dangerous secret has someone wanting to Molly dead so she turns to Josiah for help which has a spark igniting between them but with danger escalating will either one of them live long enough to give being in a relationship a try? This new Elder Race story is an enthralling and empowering read that readers find impossible to put down. The characters are strong, convincing and easily demand attention with the heroine overcoming a lot and finally coming into her own as she learns to control her burgeoning powers and regain the confidence in herself that she lost. The hero has let revenge shape his life and turned him cold which makes this read an emotionally gripping read and readers can’t help but become caught up in the changes that happen to couple throughout this story. The chemistry between Molly and Josiah splendidly electrical and as powerful as the magic flowing through their veins and readers can practically feel the burn as this combustible romance takes off. The fast paced plot is full of thrilling events that steadily builds suspense throughout the story ensuring that readers don’t want to miss a second of what is happening and unexpected twists ensures that they can’t possibly predict the outcome and an adrenaline pumping magical battle which makes this one magical, thrilling and empowering reading experience.

I received an advanced copy for an honest review. This book certainly lived up to Thea Harrison standards of strong characters. It takes place in her Elder Race world. The beginning chapter hooked completely! Molly walked up to her husband during a dinner party and dropped a pair of panties in his martini glass. What a statement to build from. I also liked that our main character was not a 20 something still trying to find herself. It was refreshing to read a book about a woman over 40. I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 for two reasons. One: for me Josiah was a hard sell at first to like him, until I got to see the world through his eyes, then he grew on me. Two: I know this is the first book of a new series but the love story didn't feel complex or complete. Usually her stories unfold around the romance, but to me this felt as if the mystery was first and the romance was second.

American Witch is the start of a promising new trilogy and a pretty great origin story. Using her trademark dry wit and quick-fire pacing, Harrison kicks off things with a woman at a crossroad who gets caught up in a revenge-fueled battle just as her personal life goes completely off the rails. The opening scenes are engaging and dynamic enough to reel you in immediately. Very shortly into the story arc, it’s obvious that Molly is a woman to be reckoned. Harrison has flair and it’s on full display from page one. The dialogue is vibrant, the descriptions vivid and the pace fitting for the story development. I freely admit to being biased in favor of how Harrison creates a heroine. Molly’s strengths and weaknesses are compelling, relatable, and make for a charismatic character. You’ll root for her even as you get frustrated when it seems like she’s deliberately missing what’s happening around her. But this is a refreshingly well thought out woman and a damn interesting witch-in-the-making. Now, there wouldn’t really be a story - and this wouldn’t be the world of the Elder Races - if there wasn’t a greater conflict and mystery afoot…Molly’s emergence as a witch happens at exactly the worst time for Josiah Mason, Atlanta’s new District Attorney and uber powerful witch just arrived into intent on hunting down a century’s old enemy – and establishing himself as a Power on the eastern seaboard. Harrison has a way of building a male antagonist unafraid of a strong woman and vulnerable enough to admit when he’s been a jackass. Josiah is brooding, badass, and definitely worth taking a risk on…even if he doesn’t think so. There are few writers, in my opinion, that takes the “enemies-into-lovers” trope and do something worth the read. I know bold words but I’ve rarely interesting in the I hated you before I loved you schtick. Josiah is an intriguing character with a backstory that deepens the paranormal elements in this world and expands the plot in ways that will lure readers further into the mix. Harrison, however, has a deft hand at building complicated relationships that take elements of this trope and show them for what they really are. The romantic elements of this story are a great example of how to build a relationship between two strong-willed people who have chemistry between them but every reason (but not the sock and trade obvious reasons) to not act on it. Thea Harrison returns to the world of the Elder Races in the US with a new spin-off focuses on witches and the twitchy witchy things they get up to. It wasn’t what I expected, and I couldn’t be happier about that. This book is a stand-alone, but it does a great job of setting a solid foundation for the stories to follow. Which, of course, makes for good conflict and romantic growth watching this pair find their romantic footing occasionally slows the pace but is absolutely worth the side trip. For newcomers to the world of the Elder Races as well as long-standing readers, this world is a unique contemporary take on the United States where magic exists in the mainstream. Harrison has a way of blending the fictional, fantastical, and factual in a way that creates opportunities for stories with amazing synergy, a sense of history (because damn does she know how to pull together a villain backstory), and movement that’s a steamy, action-packed and worthy journey to a happily-ever-after. (I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review)

I enjoyed Thea Harrison’s latest book, American Witch. For those familiar with her Elder Series, this one is focused on a new cast of characters and doesn’t delve into the aspects of her other series. For me, Harrison always writes satisfying female characters, and I get that again with Molly. The main character has a lot thrown at her, but she holds her own. Similarly, Josiah’s progression over the course of the book is great to see. I always love the subtle ways Harrison uses history and myth in her books and this is another great example. The book focuses mainly on Molly and Josiah so I am curious if the other secondary characters will pop up again. A lot happens in the last twenty or so pages of the book. I wanted (not to get too spoiler-y) a little more time with Molly finding her new powers. Overall, satisfying romance, great characters, and worth the read.

I really enjoyed this book! It was different than I was expecting and I loved how dynamic the characters were, specifically the main characters. I liked how the Molly was a bit older than you usually see in Harrison's books, and how that manifested itself in a more self assured and confident personality- it was very refreshing! I couldn't put this book down and can't wait for the next installment in the series!

Any book based on the Elder Races series is a must read for me. Molly Sullivan comes into her witch powers late in life and during the journey to explore those powers finds what fate had in store. Molly is the perfect wife with the perfect life, until reality pulls the rug from underneath that perfect fantasy. When her life is in chaos, she is required to do some quick thinking to deal with her personal crisis and newly emerging powers. While pursing his own agenda, Josiah Mason steps in to help Molly and ends up finding a possible lead to his quarry. I really loved Molly as the main character. Frankly once she shook herself out of the defined lines of everyone’s expectations she was decisive, strategic and just brilliant in her planning and execution. The book showed the evolution of the life of this character and it was phenomenal. Josiah was a good complement to Molly, but I look forward to a book that develops his character and the life with his coven a bit more (hoping for a possible prequel). The tidbits given about witches made think back on the ones encountered in the Elder Races Series and made me want to re-read this book and re-listen to Oracle’s Moon. Overall, it was a great book and I am eagerly waiting for more from this story arc. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
