Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine, focusing on unreleased books we are excited for!
This week I picked:
The Witch Hunter by Virginia Boecker
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.

I’m currently so into fantasy books, I don’t even recognize myself anymore. Okay, not really. But have a look at the blurb, doesn’t it sound ridiculously intriguing? And OMG, the cover!!! It’s so different from all the YA covers I’ve ever seen but I think it perfectly captures the mysterious-ness in this book, even though I haven’t read it yet (and it looks a little bit Illuminati). If you happen to have an arc of this book, feel free to send it to me LOL.
