The Witch HunterThe Witch Hunter
Virginia Boecker
Published: June 2nd, 2015
Genres: YA, Paranormal, Fantasy
The magic and suspense of Graceling meet the political intrigue and unrest of Game of Thrones in this riveting fantasy debut.

Elizabeth Grey is one of the king's best witch hunters, devoted to rooting out witchcraft and doling out justice. When she's accused of being a witch herself, Elizabeth is arrested and sentenced to die at the stake. Salvation comes from a man she thought was her enemy. Nicholas Perevil, the most powerful 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.

As she's thrust into the world of witches, ghosts, pirates, and all-too-handsome healers, Elizabeth is forced to redefine her ideas of right and wrong, and of love and hate.

Boecker's rich, witch-hunting, witch-burning world is filled with everything a good fantasy book needs: swords, poison, black magic, rat hordes, and betrayal. Elizabeth Grey is a tough, feisty protagonist whose fearless heart takes more twists and turns than the narrow city alleys in which the story opens. A fun, corpse-ridden, blood-drenched debut.
—April Tucholke, author of Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea.

Ooh, why wouldn't I want to read THE WITCH HUNTER? I mean it's got everything I love: Magic, suspense, witch hunters, ghosts, pirates, and as the synopsis says, an all-too-handsome healer!! ;)

 YEP, and that's only the tip of the iceberg of why I NEED to read this book asap!! But the only terrible part about this book is it's insanely faraway release date!! And June 2nd, 2015 is just CRAZY long! But, I'm sure it'll be well worth the wait!

What do you think of my WoW?

Will you be adding it to your TBR Reading Pile?

Virginia BoeckerVirginia Boecker recently spent four years in London obsessing over English medieval history, which formed the basis of her debut novel, The Witch Hunter. She now lives in the Bay Area, California with her husband and spends her days writing, reading, running, and chasing around her two children and a dog named George.

In addition to English kings, nine-day queens, and Protestant princesses, her other obsessions include The Smiths, art museums, champagne, and Chapstick. You can visit Virginia online at or on Twitter @virgboecker.
