Witch Hunter by Virginia Boecker (Review)

Elizabeth Grey is a witch hunter and is devoted to rooting out evil and witchcraft and looks for justice. One day, those she worked side by side with turned against her and she was accused of witchcraft and thrown in prison and sentenced to death by burning. Close to death, Elizabeth gets a visit from the famous and hunted wizard called Nicholas Perevil who saves her life in return for her service to save his life from a curse placed on him.

I was fairly happy when I got accepted for this because I had my eye on it for a while but I was majorly disappointed in Witch Hunter. I was expecting action and magic with some fantastic world building. However, what I got was the complete opposite. It was slow, lacking action and magic and just overall lacklustre with poor world building.

Elizabeth was just dull with little personality and to say she was supposed to be the best witch hunter in Anglia, we never really saw it, and when I did see an action scene, it felt out of place and out of character? It was weird because it just did not feel right. No one else was memorable either, like I’ve literally just forgot everyone’s names?

Also, where were all the women? There were dozen of male characters with numerous scenes, and only 2 women that had more than one scene (only 4 in total).

Overall, disappointing.

MY RATING: ★☆☆☆☆
