In the spring of 1628, the Witchfinder of Wessex finds himself a true Witch. As Bess Hawksmith watches her mother swing from the Hanging Tree she knows that only one man can save her from the same fate at the hands of the panicked mob: the Warlock Gideon Masters, and his Book of Shadows. Secluded at his cottage in the woods, Gideon instructs Bess in the Craft, awakening formidable powers she didn’t know she had and making her immortal. She couldn't have foreseen that even now, centuries later, he would be hunting her across time, determined to claim payment for saving her life.
This was really good! An amazing find at my local library. it swept me up, the story itself is amazing and had me thinking about Bes and Gideon a lot. Though mostly about Gideon Masters. I'm sorry I know he's a baddie, but The author made him so bloody sexy the whole fact he sold his soul to the devil I could get past that. This made a really good change to the style of book's I normally read. And I really enjoyed it. Even though I got this book at my library I would definitely consider collecting more of Paula Brackston's works.
The only thing I didn't care for at all in this book was Tegan the main character I personally felt the author made her so dimwitted.
