The magic and suspense of Graceling meet the political intrigue and unrest of Game of Thrones in this riveting fantasy debut. Your greatest enemy isn't what you fight, but what you fear. Elizabeth Grey is one of the king's best witch hunters, devoted to rooting out witchcraft and doling out justice. But when she's accused of being a witch herself, Elizabeth is arrested and sentenced to burn at the stake. Salvation comes from a man she thought was her enemy. Nicholas Perevil, the most powerful and dangerous wizard in the kingdom, offers her a deal: he will save her from execution if she can break the deadly curse that's been laid upon him. But Nicholas and his followers know nothing of Elizabeth's witch hunting past--if they find out, the stake will be the least of her worries. And as she's thrust into the magical world of witches, ghosts, pirates, and one all-too-handsome healer, Elizabeth is forced to redefine her ideas of right and wrong, of friends and enemies, and of love and hate. Virginia Boecker weaves a riveting tale of magic, betrayal, and sacrifice in this unforgettable fantasy debut.

Unbelievable and as far from skilled writing as I have ever seen in my life. The narration is first person, and the young female character, who is a witch hunter, has been accused of being a witch and sentenced to execution because she is carrying herbs that will prevent her getting pregnant from the king, who has forced her to have repeated sex with her. Yet, when she escapes prison, apparently she never thinks about her repeated rape by the king or how she only went to herbs to protect herself from pregnancy. No mention ever again of her rape or her persecution by the married king, or how this forced her to seek herbs to prevent pregnancy. This inconsistency is so jarring that as much as I tried to read and get into the story, the stark fact that in first person especially an author would ignore this huge aspect of characterization is unbelievable. And the positive reviews from the critics are even more unbelievable. There is something rotten here, and this novel stinks.
