If you haven't heard, The Witch Collector, book one in the Witch Walker trilogy, released November 2nd. I'm so thrilled with the book's reception. Readers and bloggers have made this an exceptional debut experience. The Witch Collector even hit #1 in the UK in Fairy Tales and #2 in the US. I've been walking around pretty stunned since 11/2.
So what's this book about? First off, it's a romantic fantasy with mid-level, open-door steam. There are witches, magick, curses, ancient gods, immortal rulers, forced proximity, enemies to lovers, and a villain you will love to hate.
Here's the blurb:
Every harvest moon, the Witch Collector rides into our valley and leads one of us to the home of the immortal Frost King, to remain forever.
Today is that day—Collecting Day.
But he will not come for me. I, Raina Bloodgood, have lived in this village for twenty-four years, and for twenty-four years he has passed me by.
Raina Bloodgood has one desire: kill the Frost King and the Witch Collector who stole her sister. On Collecting Day, she means to exact murderous revenge, but a more sinister threat sets fire to her world. Rising from the ashes is the Collector, Alexus Thibault, the man she vowed to slay and the only person who can help save her sister.
Thrust into an age-old story of ice, fire, and ancient gods, Raina must abandon vengeance and aid the Witch Collector in saving the Frost King or let their empire—and her sister—fall into enemy hands. But the lines between good and evil blur, and Raina has more to lose than she imagined. What is she to do when the Witch Collector is no longer the villain who stole her sister, but the hero who’s stealing her heart?
"If you like your fantasy with complex magic, an intriguing protagonist, a powerful romance, and a great cast of supporting characters, I highly recommend The Witch Collector. Charissa Weaks's high-stakes storytelling will leave you waiting eagerly for the next installment." — Juliet Marillier, award-winning author of the Warrior Bards series
"A romantic, fraught and fantastic journey through war-torn lands and a deliciously malevolent enchanted forest. I loved the voiceless heroine who wields magical sign language and the tormented hero determined to keep her alive and save an empire. Welcome to a compelling new fantasy world and a truly epic tale!" — Jeffe Kennedy, award-winning author of The Forgotten Empires and Dark Wizard
