Everyone will betray you…
Sophie has always had a high opinion of herself. She is smart, beautiful, and meant for something more than a mundane, human life.
From a young age she’s had to weigh duty against selfish desires. Her new friend Izzy starts to break down her carefully-constructed walls, and makes Sophie question everything she thought she knew.
With witch-hunters and witches vying for a place in her future, Sophie has to decide who she can trust.
This is a prequel to the Witch-Hunter trilogy, and contains spoilers from the very beginning.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

***Warning this book contains some horrific scenes, so beware!***
I absolutely LOVE this book series and want to thank the author for my advanced reading copy. This is the second prequel to the Witch-Hunter Trilogy and does contain spoilers from the trilogy so it is highly recommended that you read The Shadow Rises, before finding out more about everybody’s favourite cold-hearted bitch SOPHIE.
Teenager Sophie Murphy is beautiful, arrogant and cocky. She is something very special amongst the witch community, although as yet she has not come into her full power being so young and still in training.
The witch council are trying to find the tool or key to unlock Sophie’s full potential but who can she trust? She has no friends, but does become close with Izzy a Wiccan who is in many of the same classes as Sophie at school. Izzy begs often to go to the events hosted by the witch’s community but Sophie always refuses. Wiccans are not seen in a favourable light by true witches.
Sadly Izzy sneaks to one of the events, and this will be her undoing. Sophie and her aunt have to give Izzy a potion to make her forget all she has seen. However, will the spell last or will there be dire consequences? Check out the story for yourself.
This is a wonderful addition to the Witch-Hunter Series I cannot wait to get my hands on a print copy to sit on my Book Shelf of Favourites.
When a new witch threat rises, only Hunter Astley can stop them…
In the face of dark magic and evil witches, a secret witch-hunting society works tirelessly to keep them at bay. The Malleus Maleficarum Council have strict rules and practises for eradicating magic.
Due to their work, witches have been almost forgotten, relegated to myth; but rumours are starting to emerge of a new power that will throw the world into chaos.
As the only 7th generation witch-hunter, Hunter Astley is the best the MMC has to offer. With the help of his colleagues, it’s a race to track down this new threat and stop them… in any way he can.
Part one of the Witch-Hunter trilogy is Free to download from most ebook retailers.
