High Witch series

High Witch
High Witch Book 1
by Mona Hanna
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Brayden dreams for thirty nights, tortured by the vision of a beautiful woman. When Ariel Williams walks into his inn, he sees that she's the one he's been obsessed with in his night time journeys. But Ariel is fleeing an arranged marriage and keeps shyly to herself, until the worst happens and by mistake she casts a spell on a guest. Brayden works with Ariel to help her control her magic but discovers she's a High Witch - one of only three witches in the world with a rare kind of power.

Immediately the two must flee; evil warlock Julius wants to enslave Ariel - mind, heart and body. Julius and his lover the High Witch Nadia will stop at nothing to capture Ariel, and the danger threatens to tear Ariel apart from Brayden. Ariel's only hope is that her love for Brayden and her newly-discovered powers are strong enough to save them.

This is a NOVELLA of approximately 25,000 words.

**FREE on all retailers!!**

Written with a softly beautiful descriptive quality, set in a time of magic, yet a time when it is not universally accepted,  Ariel is young and naive, with a gentle sweetness about her.
Braden is idealistic with hopes that love can conquer all, but when things go darker he becomes realistic.
Magical realism with much romance.

Witch Emerging
High Witch Book 2

After surviving being hunted by Julius, Brayden and Ariel settle into their married life. Ariel is determined to find the other High Witches to make sure they’re alright. But there’s something going on with her pregnancy, something unusual, and she needs to find out what.

In the meantime, Hallie, an eighteen-year-old witch, is being pursued by Nicholas, a strange young man who knows about her past. What does Nicholas want with Hallie, and how are they both connected to Ariel? And what about Sean, the man Hallie loves? Will they end up together, or will Nicholas’ plan hurt all of them? The two witches will need to work hard to save those they love, and each other.

This book is approximately 44,000 words, or 150 pages in print.

Ariel and Brayden's story continues with them expecting a child.  Both parents continue to display innocent characteristics. They know they must find the other two High Witches, all the time wondering if Ariel's survival altered the rules. We meet a younger High Witch, Hallie, who is learning to control her magic as Ariel had to in the first book. She has a protector, Sean, a childhood friend, who I will admit was not my favorite character. It took a while but I was happy to see some growth in his character.
Because of the recurring themes in this second book I feel the reader should start this series at the beginning. The characters from book one begin to recognize the same patterns they endured, but this time the evil one is after revenge before anything else.

High Coven
High Witch Book 3

Ariel is getting used to being a new mother and is excited to see her best friends Hallie and Sean again. She just wants to spend time with them and relax and hear about their wedding. Unfortunately, relaxing is the last thing any of them can do on this visit.

Thrust into a new place, the High Witches are delighted to find the fourth—but the circumstances couldn’t be worse. A group of men are determined to stop them from casting a spell that could change the world, bringing immense joy but also great disaster. The risks of the spell might be beyond their ability to handle.

A great darkness is coming. It will take more than two High Witches to stop it: it will take a coven.

High Coven is the third and final book in the High Witch series.

This final book of the trilogy brings good vs evil to its inevitable confrontation.
Both sides believe they are working for the better cause. Never threaten a new mother, especially a sleep deprived mother. They felt pushed to act.
Overall, the idea of creating covens and teaching witches how to use their magic responsibly is valuable. Helping them feel accepted and supported is a worthy cause. The need to cause mass destruction with the great darkness before education and light can begin was disconcerting. 

This series must be read in order. At times it was a struggle to define its genre. 
I appreciated the extended epilogue
