Fritzi is a witch. The lone survivor of a brutal attack on her coven, she's determined to find her only remaining family member and bring the hexenjägers―zealot witch hunters―to justice for the lives they ended. To do this, she will need to take down their leader, the merciless and enigmatic Kommandant Dieter Kirch.

Otto is a hexenjäger―but that's just his cover. Years ago, the hexenjägers burned his innocent mother alive, and he has been plotting his revenge against the people who tore apart his family ever since. And now the time has come for them to pay for what they've done.

When Fritzi and Otto are unexpectedly thrown together, neither is sure they can trust the other. The reluctant truce fueled by their common enemy takes them from the city at the heart of the hexenjägers' power to the wild and mysterious Black Forest. As old truths come to light and new dangers are revealed, Fritzi and Otto uncover a horrifying magical plot at the center of the hexenjäger attacks that leads back to Kommandant Kirch . . . but their own growing feelings for each other may be the most powerful magic of all.

What worked: Action-packed historical fantasy filled with magic, betrayal, and witch hunts. The research behind this engaging fantasy brings life to this witchy tale.

The friends-to-enemies angle starts slow. At first, Fritzi hates all hexenjagers-witch hunters-especially after she witnesses her whole village and mother being slaughtered. Fritzi's rage and anger lead her to the Black Forest for protection only she happens on another witch being rounded up by the dreaded hexenjagers. This is where she meets Otto, who has his own secret.

This is a page-turning novel with twists and turns that keep readers guessing. The idea that there actually were witch hunting/burnings in Europe adds to the realism.

The chemistry between Fritzi and Otto builds while the world around them erupts. The reveals are surprising. So are the betrayals.

The ending hints at a sequel. So readers will see what happens further in this witchy tale!

Based on the Medieval German Witch Trials of the 1500s, this historical fantasy weaves its own magic on readers with two characters that need to work together to overcome evil.
Good Points
1. Page-turning action with enemies to lovers
2. Based on Medieval German Witch Trials
3. Magic, betrayal, and witches
