The Witch Hunter by Virginia Boecker is a phenomenal debut young adult fantasy book full of magic, mystery, trust and self discovery.
A world of witches, witch hunters and wizards where no one is safe and no one can be sure whom to trust is the perfect combination for an absolutely magical adventure! Elizabeth Grey is a witch hunter and possesses secrets, skills and powers that will serve her well amongst those that seek her out. When Elizabeth is caught in a precarious situation, she is sentenced to die. It is through this turn of events that everything changes – it’s spellbinding and a complete page turner!
When Elizabeth’s trusted friend Caleb leaves her for death, it’s a stranger that comes to her rescue. What are his intentions? When the stranger reveals his purpose, it will blow your mind! What a fantastic and magical cast of characters built into a world full of hope, fear, and love that will capture your heart. Boundaries will be crossed as Elizabeth figures out who she can trust and believe.
After reading this fantastic book I immediately tried to figure out which actors would play each character – it would make a blockbuster hit movie! I suspect the rights will be gobbled up soon and we will see Elizabeth on the big screen soon.
I received this ARC from the publisher for a fair and honest review. Thank you so much! I look forward to gifting this must read! For those still craving more after finishing The Witch Hunter, The Healer (a novella) will be out August 11th. It’s available for pre-order it now on Amazon!
