The Witch Hunter by Virginia Boecker
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Elizabeth Grey is good at what she does. She is a witch hunter for the king, but that all changes when she is arrested for witchcraft and sentenced to burn. After accepting her fate, she is saved by Nicholas Perevil. He is the most dangerous wizard around and he has a bargain for Elizabeth. He will get her out of the dungeon and save her life. All she needs to do is break the curse that has been slowly killing him. As she learns more about witches and other magical creatures, she discovers hidden truths about herself and those around her. Who should she trust? Can she trust what she was taught during her witch hunting training?
The Witch Hunter is the first book in a new fantasy series with the same title. The story takes place during a time reminiscent of our own dark ages. Magic is a hidden secret and the judges who sentence the men and women of witchcraft are not concerned with guilt or innocence. Their own power struggle is the only factor of importance in deciding who lives and who dies. This magical story will keep readers turning the page and most likely looking for the second book in the series.
