An action-packed and suspenseful sequel to The Witch Hunter, perfect for fans of Graceling and the Grisha Trilogy.

"I think, in time, you'll either be my greatest mistake or my greatest victory."

Former witch hunter Elizabeth Grey is hiding within the magically protected village of Harrow, evading the price put on her head by Lord Blackwell, the usurper king of Anglia. Their last encounter left Blackwell ruined, but his thirst for power grows stronger every day. He's readying for a war against those who would resist his rule--namely Elizabeth and the witches and wizards she now calls her allies.

Having lost her stigma, a magical source of protection and healing, Elizabeth's strength is tested both physically and emotionally. War always means sacrifice, and as the lines between good and evil blur once more, Elizabeth must decide just how far she'll go to save those she loves.

3 Reasons You Should Read…

The King Slayer by Virginia Boecker

  • Have you been looking for a complete series to read? Wait no longer! The Witch Hunter Series is a duology, and we loved that we could read the conclusion, get answers to our questions, and then start the whole thing over if we wanted to!
  • We knew we wanted to read this series well before we got our hands on a copy of The Witch Hunter at BEA in 2015, but when we met Virginia there it sealed the deal. She is adorable, kind, and hilarious. Her words just confirmed the genius behind these pages.
  • Still need another reason to read? New characters, twists and turns, TONS of swoon, and a completely satisfying ending. These are all perfect descriptions for The King Slayer. Go grab a copy now!
