9781444914467: Witchfinder: Witch Finder

London, 1880, and eighteen-year-old Luke Lexton is about to endure his initiation into the Malleus Maleficorum - the secretive brotherhood devoted to hunting witches, and the organisation that will help Luke take revenge on the witch who murdered his parents. His 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 picks out sixteen-year-old Rosa Greenwood, a witch-girl living in rapidly fading grandeur on the west side of town. She's the last bargaining chip in her family's struggle to avoid bankruptcy and is about to be married off to the handsome, cruel, grotesquely rich Sebastian Knyvet - a powerful member of the Ealdwitan.
As Rosa and Luke get to know each other, Luke realises it will be impossible for him to kill Rosa, just as Rosa knows she will bring disgrace on her family if she does not marry Knyvet. But Knyvet is hiding dark secrets - including the key which will unlock the mystery of Luke's murdered parents. Torn between appeasing their elders and their growing affection for each other, Rosa and Luke must each make their choice between life and death.

'Gorgeously romantic.' Amanda Craig, The Times

About the Author:

Ruth Warburton grew up on the south coast of England in Lewes. She studied English at the University of Manchester, and there developed a fascination with Old English and Middle English texts. She is the author of the successful WINTER TRILOGY and a publicist for adult fiction at Random House. Ruth lives in North London.

Review:

"A Witch in Winter is totally one to look out for. Ruth Warburton is going to take the YA market by storm. With well researched facts, romance and some fantastic action scenes, A Witch in Winter is a thoroughly enchanting read!" - Jade, at Ink Scratchers―Jade at Ink Scratchers

This spellbinding read poses some interesting questions about love, life and ethics.―Kiss

This is a very enjoyable read, and an impressive debut novel. ****―Books For Keeps

First rate... distinctive and memorable.―Carousel

A great deal to like here.―Bookbag

A fantastic start to what promises to be an awesome series.―Jess Hearts Books

"One of my most highly anticipated 2012 reads..." - Brodie of Eleusinian Mysteries―Brodie of Eleusinian Mysteries

"It's a great read, steeped in witchcraft, with a steamy romance, feisty leads and a brooding coastal setting."―The Bookseller

"Anna's reactions to the events were pretty much how I imagine I'd react, which made it easy to love her... The love story was so fantastically different, I loved the idea of it and it was so well executed... The ultimate battle was amazing, the enemy was one that I actually found quite scary, and the solution was neither easy nor lazy. It has everything you'd expect from a paranormal YA, but it avoids the cliches and predictability..." - Cait from The Cait Files―Cait from The Cait Files
