Waiting on Wednesday: The King Slayer by Virginia Boecker

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights eagerly anticipated upcoming releases!

Last year I absolutely loved Virginia Boecker's debut, The Witch Hunter. My only issue with the book was that I finished it wanting to dive right into the sequel, which isn't out until June. I can't wait to see what Ms. Boecker has in store for Elizabeth in my WOW pick, The King Slayer!

The King Slayer Cover Title: The King Slayer

Book Description (from Amazon):

"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.
