Today we give our whole Release Day Blitz to the wonderful Virginia Boecker and her release The Witch Hunter!
We’ve been waiting for a while now for this book and I just picked it up last week in New York at the Teen Author Carnival! I met Virginia and she is just as fantastic in person as on social media. Here are some pictures from that event.
But wait…there’s more! While in line at BEA ,who did I just run into? Why Virginia and author Melissa Grey, you know..the one who wrote the fantastic book The Girl at Midnight! They’re just too cute!
Let’s take a look at Virginia’s The Witch Hunter!
Your greatest enemy isn’t what you fight, but what you fear.
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.
Virginia Boecker weaves a riveting tale of magic, betrayal, and sacrifice in this unforgettable fantasy debut.
About the Author:
Virginia Boecker recently spent four years in London obsessing over English medieval history, which formed the basis of 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. She is represented by the incomparable Kathleen Ortiz at New Leaf Literary & Media.
Happy Release day Virginia!
