The Witch Hunter

The magic and suspense of GRACELING meet the political intrigue and unrest of “Game of Thrones” in this riveting fantasy debut.

Your greatest enemy isn't what you fight, but what you fear.

Elizabeth Grey is one of the king's best witch hunters, devoted to rooting out witchcraft and doling out justice. But when she's accused of being a witch herself, Elizabethis arrested and sentenced to burn at the stake.

Salvation comes from a man she thought was her enemy. Nicholas Perevil, the most powerful and dangerous wizard in the kingdom, offers her a deal: he will save her from execution if she can break the deadly curse that's been laid upon him.

But Nicholas and his followers know nothing of Elizabeth's witch hunting past --- if they find out, the stake will be the least of her worries. And as she's thrust into the magical world of witches, ghosts, pirates and one all --- too-handsome healer, Elizabeth is forced to redefine her ideas of right and wrong, of friends and enemies and of love and hate. 

Virginia Boecker weaves a riveting tale of magic, betrayal and sacrifice in this unforgettable fantasy debut.
