Luke has lived with fear since the day his parents were brutally killed by a witch. Hiding under the furniture, he could do nothing to save them. Now he is eighteen and can begin the search for his parents’ killer. Now he can move past the fear.
Luke can see witches; he sees their magic floating around them, where to others they look like ordinary people. But to get the tools and the skills he needs to kill a witch, he must join the Malleus Malificarum, a secret society dedicated to killing witches. To be a member, he must pass the trial of the hammer. He must kill a witch.
Rosa has no idea she has been marked for death. Her mother and brother are insisting that she marry to save their family’s properties. Sixteen-year-old Rosa has no interest in being married, it must be better than life with her increasingly abusive brother. But Sebastian Knyvet is a frightening unknown, and the more she learns about him, the more she fears what marriage to him will mean.
Witch Finder will appeal to fans of Cassandra Clare’s Infernal Devices series, historical fiction readers, and readers who love romance.
