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, Elizabeth is 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Weaves a Magical Spell "The Witch Hunter" by Virginia Boecker is a wonderful fantasy that immediately draws you into the life of Elizabeth Grey, one of the king's witch hunters. Alongside Caleb, the only family she's ever really known, she does what she's been taught by the fearsome and enigmatic Blackwell. But nothing is what it seems in this magical realm and when circumstances beyond her control place Elizabeth on the opposing side of Blackwell's wrath, destiny steps in and leads her to a group of people and a new way of life, one that will take her through fiery trials and the darkest of fears, but will ultimately give her a new life filled with hope and a future. This is a breath-taking tale that will compel you to keep reading, giving rise to the question of whether the author has infused a little magic into the book itself.
