*My Thoughts*

Witches With the Enemy is the third installment in the Mist-Torn Witches series by author Barb Hendee. When Sisters Céline and Amelie Fawe fled Shetâna under threat of death nearly a year ago (see the first installment called The Mist-Torn Witches if you haven't already), they vowed to

Another solid book by the author. It's a bit maddening that I am only the 27th reviewer, for this book is so much better than many YA fantasy novels with tens of thousands of reviews. I feel like banging my head in frustration over this, though probably the author feels 1000 times as bad as I do about it. There is a romance in the series, but it's very slow burn. Also it's nice how the characters on the covers are actually the characters inside the book.

So yay for the book, and DAMN the vagaries

Book 3 of the Mist-Torn Witches series sees Céline and Amelie Fawe heading back into the land of their birth, Shetâna, to do a job for Prince Damek who once tried to have them killed.
Like the previous two books this one involves a mysterious murder, but the murders keep happening and it is soon obvious that no one is what they appear to be at all. This one grabs you from the beginning.
Hendee is great at character development and it was nice to see Céline get some much needed growth and the spot

Reviewer: Me

When I began Witches with the Enemy, I had ZERO expectations. Heck, I don’t even remember requesting the ARC from NetGalley, or downloading it to my kindle. And I’ve always been forthcoming with how I chose my next read: I dive into the first chapter of three random novels and see which story seizes my attention (and holds it) first. However, when I read the prologue of Witches with the

At least 4 stars. Review at The Book Nympho:

I read the first two books in The Mist-Torn Witches series to prepare for this review and I’m really enjoying the series. I generally don’t like historical romance but the fantasy books which are set in historical times I also think I wouldn’t like, but then I do. I guess I can’t generalize; I have to read the book and see.

This series has witches and this is my favorite sort of supernatural. There have also been

I liked it but I don't think I'm going to continue reading the series. Each book is the same. The sisters solve a mystery, one sister flirts with Jaromir and one sister flirts with Anton.

In this book we finally meet Anton's evil brother, Damek, and see Anton interact with his father.

Eh. Overall the book was forgettable. And I didn't like the character of Rochelle. She was scheming and now the sisters are her enemy.
Fantasy series with it's latest installment. This one is a murder mystery. Interesting characters, fairly well written and a good read. Not high art, but not silly either. Probably a little too obvious but I don't usually try too hard to figure a mystery out while I'm reading and this one was intricate enough that I didn't jump to a conclusion. Book 3 of a series with strong main female characters.

The best one in the series so far! And the ending set up some intrigue for future books, which is fun. I like the way the sisters are getting to know their gifts, and again, the way the potential romances are moving slowly but sweetly. There are obstacles, especially for Celine, but I'm hopeful. I look forward to the next book!

So far the first one in the series is my favorite. It had the most depth.

I liked the second one because of the wolves and setting.

I like this one because of the setting too. I think Handee's biggest strength is world building. I really want to be there, watching. Descriptions are good, too.

This one had a great premise, but I wish there'd been more motivation for Anton taking Celine and Amalie to his his brother's. He knows his brother is a psycho. If my sister were a psycho, I wouldn't take the

An easy read and enjoyable despite a few things that make me twitch: a lot of stereotypes that make the characters come up lacking in depth along with a few other minor things... Such as: character x gets a face scratch and then.... THE NEXT DAY ..a comment on how it stopped bleeding. I don't know about you..but any scratches on people's faces would clot up pretty quickly if they had bled at all.

Barb Hendee's Witches with the Enemy is a a surprising twist where the Mist-Torn sisters have been asked to help the prince who previously wanted to bring them harm. It's a riveting read for fantasy audiences.

I once again declare my love/hate with this series. There was a lot of potential for this series, but the sisters aren’t given a chance to use their gifts to their fullest until the very end when Amelie sees the killer’s past right at the apex of the action and once again screeching the whole story to a halt. I will still read the next one, because I am still hoping to see more from these characters.

By: Barb Hendee

Agatha Christie would be proud!

Barb Hendee delivers in this book! She takes us again with Celine and Amelie, sister "seers" in Prince Anton's court, on another murder mystery adventure. The author must be a lot like her main character Celine because she writes with a very insightful and empathetic pen. Her characters and events come to life before your eyes while guiding your mind to all the important information! have

Witches with the Enemy by Barb Hendee is the 3rd book in her Mist-Torn Witches series. I love this series, as it has two wonderful heroines, exciting storylines, and well written. Celine and Amelie are our heroines, and they are seers. Celine can see the future, and Amelie can see the past, just by touching the person. They both work for Prince Anton, who is the good prince in comparison to his evil brother, Prince Damek. After solving cases in the first two books, Celine and Amelie have been su ...more

Witches with the Enemy is the 3rd installment in Barb Hendee's Mist-Torn Witches series and this was my favorite of the series so far. Like all Hendee books, Witches With the Enemy was engaging, entertaining, and well written, all revolving around two super strong heroines that you can't help but love.

Witches with the Enemy: A Novel of the Mist-Torn Witches by Barb Hendee is a highly enjoyable read. Anton is becoming an interesting character. And while his brother Damek is the kind of evil I usually see as cartoonish, it works here. Damek has his own quirks and habits that make him into more than just a standard psychopath.

I love Amelie and Celine. They’re so different and yet so close to each other. Their differences also make it easier for them to seek out information in different ways and

Barb Hendee takes us out for another adventure with the orphaned Sisters Fawe in their murky homeland of Droevinka. I've been enjoying this series immensely. Each installment is a self-contained mystery and also is part of an overarching story encompassing all three books.

The sisters once again have a difficult murder to unravel and the high stakes of a political wedding hanging in the balance that will effect everyone if they fail. They set about the task with their usual cleverness and humani

When I first started the Mist-Torn Witches series, I really liked it: the mystery, healing, seeing the future and past. Unfortunately I am over it now. Every book follows the same pattern: the sisters are fine, an invitation to do seeing comes, it turns out some mystery needs to be solved, they don't want to go, they go and people don't believe in their powers, a murder is seen but they can't stop it, another murder is seen and they try to stop it, for some crazy reason one sister has to run off ...more

Even though the plot of this book took place in much less time than the previous one, I think it moved a little slower. The mystery was good though; I only felt really strongly about who the culprit was a chapter or two before it was revealed. I normally know within a short span of beginning a story. I felt that some character lines were just completely dropped from the previous book, but considering where the plot led, it is understandable; it would have been weird to include those continuation ...more

Witches solving mysteries in pseudo-medieval times.

I enjoy this series, the books are fun and fluffy. I really like the world, and the characters, which makes me wish the books went deeper.

I also read all 3 in a row, which really doesn't do the series any favours - you really notice the repetition between books, and how the author uses the same phrases over and over. The first chapters especially feel like there was some Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V going on. It's a problem most series have, I find, wantin

I love this series! The third installment is just as great as the first two! I enjoyed having the sisters go to Damek's castle and getting to learn more about him, as unsettling as he is. The mystery in this story is just as engaging as the first two books.

I really enjoy this series - the mysteries are interesting, the world has lots of possibilities, wondrous and awful, and the books leave me wanting to know more. This book wasn't perfect, but it was completely enjoyable - and the lack of Jaromir in it just made it more enjoyable to me. Looking forward to the next one (hopefully?).

I'm an addict. No, really. I've had dreams about them, now. And... now I have to wait. Because no author can keep up with my reading schedule.

Seriously, I love these young women - they're tough, they're strong on their own, and they are good without being unbelievable mary sue types.

These are perfect for a short afternoon read that takes little energy, is light on blood and gore and sweetened with a little unrequited love. The title is a bit misleading as the main characters are psychics not witches.
