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.

This cover is so gorgeous. And because of this, I think I will love this book, hah :D The summary is pretty amazing too. I do like reading about witches. And this sounds pretty exciting :) Just hoping it will be amazing like I want it to be. <3 Wishing for a great romance, with no hint of a triangle :) Oh, I hope. But! Comparing it to Graceling. And Game of Thrones. Ugh. I do not think any books can compare to Graceling. And I really hate when people try comparing them. Sigh. But still hoping to love this one :) Oh! And I now have this as an eARC, the UK edition. <3 I shall be reading it very soon, I think.
What are you waiting for on this witchy Wednesday?
