Hunter Astely – witch hunter extraordinaire – is the best at what he does: hunting witches and keeping humanity safe. It’s not by choice however, it’s his heritage.
When he saves a young girl from a pack of witches in Italy, his life is turned upside down when she demands to be brought into the fray and trained to be a witch hunter herself – as his apprentice.
This book was surprisingly good. It’s fun, it’s easy, and it’s damn gripping. It reminds me a lot of Buffy and Angel, two shows that I both loved when I was younger and which I find myself really wanting to watch again now.
I felt like the book maybe fumbled a bit in the beginning, starting out on unsteady legs, but as soon as it found its footing it was awesome. Cool characters, great pace and a very intriguing plot. Also, Marsden does a great job at setting up the rest of the series. I’m intrigued!
If you want a fun, captivating witch-hunting mystery that isn’t too long, look no further than this! Chances are you’ll love the characters as well.
