Louise Le Blanc is a skilled and foul-mouthed thief with a mysterious past who has the bad luck of bumping into Reid Diggory, the “chasseurs” captain and getting his attention.
The “chasseurs” are part of the Church. They hunt and burn the witches. The witches want to overthrow the king Auguste Lyon and kill all his lineage.
Well, I must say that at the beginning I thought that it was a lot of information in little time and that all of it was kind of superficial but as I continued reading everything got better and the story got my attention. Besides it was very interesting that it used a real event of history (the hunt and burning of witches ordered by the Church).
I liked the characters and the variety of witches. Sone of them were evil.
The total difference between Lou and Reid was funny. I enjoyed when she teased him, also when she teased Ansel with songs.
The end made me want to read the other books. I think I will enjoy them so much. This is very exciting!
I recommend this book. It has adventure, romance, drama, mystery, strong and charismatic characters and a lot of magic.
