Elizabeth Grey, kitchen girl who worked hard along with her best friend, Caleb, both became witch hunters. Elizabeth believes in what she is doing, after all she is just upholding the law, until the day she is caught with the witches herbs and sent to prison and ultimately sentenced to burn at the stake. Elizabeth doesn't even try to escape thinking the whole time that Caleb will come for her, but it is not Caleb that comes but Nicolas, the greatest sorcerer in the world, and that can't be good can it?
This was a good book. The pace was fast and the characters were believable but sometimes jumped between the time then and the more modern times, but it seemed to work out ok in the end. There are no huge surprises, but still had enough suspense to keep you reading until the end and looking for another book to see what happens next to Elizabeth and her friends.
