The Witch Hunter by Virginia Boecker
Expected publication June 2nd 2015
“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.”
This book is everything I want when I’m reading. I expected to like this book but I had no idea that I would be reading one of my favorites of 2015.
I started this book during a 3 hour rain delay at a baseball game and I had it half finished by time the game started. I was glued to the pages and I was sorry to put it down. I rarely read a book that pulls me in right from the first few pages and never lets go.
I loved everything about this book. From the plot to the characters to the writing. It was all insanely gripping and well put together.
The main character, Elizabeth, is amazing. She kicks so much butt and takes no crap from anyone. She’s very well written and, best of all, she’s a character that the Young Adult genre needs right now.
The plot was insane! I was on the edge of my seat 80% of the time. It was fast paced but not rushed. It was so exciting and well written.
Overall, I don’t have much of a review because I was so wrapped up in the story and characters that I forgot to think actual thoughts. I have nothing negative to say about this book. By far one of the best books I’ve read in 2015. I can’t wait to get my hands on a finished copy of this book so I can stare at it all day long.

” I don’t have much of a review because I was so wrapped up in the story and characters that I forgot to think actual thoughts.”
That’s exactly what I did with this book. I started reading, and then before I knew it, I was done, and I didn’t really have any coherent thoughts other than “YESSSSSSS”.
