Witch Finder: Witch Hunt

by Ruth Warburton

Part of the Witch Finder Series

Witch Finder: Witch Hunt Synopsis

London, 1880. Eighteen-year-old Witch Hunter Luke Lexton has failed his initiation into the Malleus Maleficorum - the secretive brotherhood devoted to hunting witches. Instead of killing the witch he picked from the Book of Witches, he has committed the worst possible crime: he has fallen for her. Sixteen-year-old witch girl Rosa Greenwood has failed to secure her struggling family's future by marrying the handsome, cruel, rich and powerful Sebastian Knyvet. Instead she has set fire to his factory and has brought disgrace on her family. Now together they are on the run - from Rosa's ex-fiance and from Luke's former brothers in the Malleus. As they flee across England, and with the danger of their past catching up to them ... can they overcome their differences? Can a witch hunter ever find love with a witch girl? 'Gorgeously romantic.' Amanda Craig, The Times

Witch Finder: Witch Hunt Press Reviews

First rate... distinctive and memorable. * Carousel * This spellbinding read poses some interesting questions about love, life and ethics. * Kiss * A fantastic start to what promises to be an awesome series. * Jess Hearts Books * This is a very enjoyable read, and an impressive debut novel. **** * Books For Keeps * A great deal to like here. * Bookbag * It's a great read, steeped in witchcraft, with a steamy romance, feisty leads and a brooding coastal setting. * The Bookseller * One of my most highly anticipated 2012 reads... - Brodie of Eleusinian Mysteries * Brodie of Eleusinian Mysteries * Anna's reactions to the events were pretty much how I imagine I'd react, which made it easy to love her... The love story was so fantastically different, I loved the idea of it and it was so well executed... The ultimate battle was amazing, the enemy was one that I actually found quite scary, and the solution was neither easy nor lazy. It has everything you'd expect from a paranormal YA, but it avoids the cliches and predictability... - Cait from The Cait Files * Cait from The Cait Files * A Witch in Winter is totally one to look out for. Ruth Warburton is going to take the YA market by storm. With well researched facts, romance and some fantastic action scenes, A Witch in Winter is a thoroughly enchanting read! - Jade, at Ink Scratchers * Jade at Ink Scratchers *
