Hello gentle reader,
this week I’m waiting on Witch Finder by Ruth Warburton (expected publication: 2d January 2014 by Hodder Children’s Books). It’s a YA Historical Fantasy set in Victorian London and the first book in a planned trilogy.
London. 1880. In the slums of Spitalfields apprentice blacksmith Luke is facing initiation into the Malleus Maleficorum, the fearsome brotherhood dedicated to hunting and killing witches.
Luke’s final test is to pick a name at random from the Book of Witches, a name he must track down and kill within a month, or face death himself. Luke knows that tonight will change his life forever. But when he picks out sixteen-year-old Rosa Greenwood, Luke has no idea that his task will be harder than he could ever imagine.
“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted by book blogger Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Have you heard about Witch Finder? Is it on your TBR list? What are you waiting on this week?
