Waiting On Wednesday [@virgboecker @lbkids]

Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine

My pick for this week:


THE KING SLAYER (The Witch Hunter #2) by Virginia Boecker

Magic, suspense, and political intrigue collide in this sequel to The Witch Hunter, perfect for fans of Graceling and the Grisha Trilogy.

Former witch hunter Elizabeth Grey is hiding within the magically protected village of Harrow, evading the price put on her head by Lord Blackwell, the usurper king of Anglia. Their last encounter left Blackwell ruined, but his thirst for power grows stronger every day. He's readying for a war against those who would resist his rule--namely Elizabeth and the witches, wizards, pirates, and healers she now calls her friends.

Having lost her stigma, a magical source of protection and healing, Elizabeth's strength is tested both physically and emotionally. War always means sacrifice, and as the lines between good and evil blur once more, Elizabeth must decide just how far she'll go to save those she loves.

In this sequel to The Witch Hunter, Virginia Boecker delivers a powerful story full of action, suspense, camaraderie, and romance.

published June 14th by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers

Why?

I absolutely enjoyed The Witch Hunter - you can read my review here - and am very excited for The King Slayer. I love the title (and the symmetry it has with the first book's title) and the cover (it's stark but also pretty . . . the red is a bit like blood/a rose/a wax seal) but mostly I can't wait to find out hte story inside.

The world and characters created in The Witch Hunte were so enjoyable, so well imagined and writen and I look forward to seeing them expanded.

"War always means sacrifice, and as the lines between good and evil blur once more, Elizabeth must decide just how far she'll go to save those she loves."

The time to join Elizabeth and her story again can't come soon enough!
