Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

To Snare a Witch by Jay Raven

To Snare A Witch: Book One – Bell, Book and Candle

A Chilling historical tale of lust, sorcery and devastating revenge

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…

My Review 

This is a chilling novella concerning the treatment of those accused of witchcraft during the seventeenth century and the abuse of powers by some of those involved. In this case Sir Henry Cruttendon abuses his position to gain revenge on a beautiful young woman who spurned his advances…….but little did he know how she’d get her own revenge!

This is a story of revenge, witchcraft and romance. It is not an easy read, with blackmail, lies, sexual abuse and more together with some surprising twists – definitely a different take on the start to a new magical series!

i requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.

Author Bio

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.
