Book Review: Witch Finder
Book 1 in the Witch Finder series
AUTHOR: Ruth Warburton
PUBLISHED: January 2nd, 2014
GENRE: Historical Fantasy, Romance, Witches
PREMISE: A witch hunter goes on a mission to kill a witch in order to prove himself to his fellow hunters. Instead, he winds up falling in love with the witch in question.
MY REVIEW: This book was a first book so I'm going to be more lenient in ratings then I normally am. Whether or not you like this book will probably depend entirely on whether or not you like the historical romance genre. If you don't, then do yourself a favor and avoid the book. You probably won't like it.
But if you love the historical romance in all its glory then this is probably going to be at least a fun read for you. Because this was very much historical romance with witches. Sadly, I came for the promise of witches so I was a little let down because world building wise...this book isn't that great. But romance wise? You're golden. Granted, it does follow most of the historical romance cliches, so again it will probably depend on your tolerance for those.
This was a bit of a miss for me. But for historical romance readers who want to try out YA for the first time, I'd say it's a decent enough intro.
WHO SHOULD READ: Historical Romance genre fans, Harlequin Teen fans
MY RATING: Three out of Five shrugs
Many thanks to Hodder Children's Books for the Net Galley I received in exchange for a honest review.
