No female dares spurn the lecherous advances of Sir Henry Cruttendon, 17th Century England’s most reviled nobleman. To do so risks a retribution that would terrify the Devil himself.
But Elizabeth Fiennes is no ordinary woman, blessed with stunning beauty, intelligence and guile. Coming from an influential family, she believes she is safe.
What she doesn’t understand is that the Earl is determined to satisfy his lust and plans to use the wave of witch trials, fear and superstition sweeping the countryside to force her into his clutches.
And as he springs his malicious trap it triggers a chain of unholy events plunging hunter and prey into a maelstrom of deceit, terror and depravity – leaving them both staring into the face of true evil…
I thoroughly enjoyed this story and read it the same night it was delivered to my Kindle, I love historical fiction, witchcraft and horror so this was a brilliant combination for me!
To be 100% honest I didn’t find it scary but that didn’t bother me as what I did sound was a brilliant story that I really, really enjoyed!
I liked the characters, the plot was solid and enjoyable and it was fun, it is a good story set in the 17th century involving witchcraft, it makes no claims to be historical accurate – just enjoy it for what it is!
This is the second book I’ve read by this author and both have been superb!! Very highly recommended I loved it, 5 stars!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Jay Raven is the author of Gothic chillers and historical horror reminding readers that the past is a dangerous place to venture, full of monsters and murderous men.
He blames his fascination with vampires, witches and werewolves on the Hammer Horror films he watched as a teenager, but living in a creepy old house on the edge of a 500-acre wood may have something to do with it.
