Waiting on Wednesday (73): The Witch Hunter by Virginia Boecker

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Title: The Witch Hunter
Virginia Boecker
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers (Hachette)
Release Date: June 2, 2015

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.

All I needed to read was witch and curse, and I was in. Then, I realized that it was an alternate-history London, so of course I want to read it. And then, there is that pretty pretty fire-ringed cover.

What are you waiting on this week?


  1. I love this cover!! I remember when I first came across this I kept thinking that something about it reminds me of Mortal Kombat. Why is June so far away!?
