The Witch Hunter by Virginia Boecker

Publish Date: June 2, 2015
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers

I love books about witchcraft and wizardry. This sounds particularly interesting since it sounds like the wizards are both good and bad guys.

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 track down the person who laid a deadly curse on 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, of friends and enemies, and of love and hate.


  1. This is one of the 2015 debuts that I'm watching out for. It's been so long since I last read a book featuring witches so I'm really excited about this one. Great pick, Alison! :)

  3. Love the cover of this one, but I'm not a huge witch story fan. If it's good though, I might give it a try.
    Check out my WOW

  4. I saw this one last week on WOW looks good! Here's my WOW if you'd like to stop by!

  5. I'm waiting on this one too! Though I am admittedly a little cautious as well because more often than not, I end up disappointed with wizard/witch/mage books because I guess I must have really high expectations...

  6. Love that cover, the political aspect of the book scares me though...don't like politics ^_^

    here's our WoW :)

  7. Sounds good! I've added it to my TBR list
