Set in London, in 1880, Ruth Warburton’s Witch Finder is the story of Luke Lexton, sworn to avenge the death of his parents at the hands of a witch. In order to become a Witch Hunter he must prove his loyalty by picking a witch to hunt down. That witch is Rosa Greenwood; sweet, but resilient, and very difficult to kill. Rosa’s forthcoming marriage to the awful Sebastian Knyvet is her family’s last hope to avoid bankruptcy. Naturally they’re drawn together.
This book has everything I love in a historical romance with magical battles thrown in. It’s told in alternative points of view and my hat off to Ms Warburton for creating two distinct and appealing voices. In the sequel, Witch Hunt, Luke and Rosa are on the run across England, both of them having failed their obligations in Witch Finder.
