Fire and brimstone. Hell on earth. Flames will not stop the Hexenjäger.
It is said that the Codex Gigas contains a spell for summoning the Prince of Darkness. So when the medieval bible is stolen by demonic soldiers known as the Sons of Cain, Jakob and his companions form an alliance with an order of English witch hunters and race to London to prevent a horrific prophecy from being fulfilled. Whether battling his way into the gaols of Rotterdam or crossing blades with the Sons of Cain during the Great Fire of London, this will be Jakob's most perilous mission yet.
About the Author
Stuart Daly is a History teacher in a private high school in Sydney. Inspired by the works of Dumas, Perez-Reverte and Matthew Reilly, and drawing upon his knowledge of the English Civil War and the Thirty Years' War, he has long considered writing an action-packed adventure series set in the seventeenth century. The Witch Hunter Chronicles are the result. Stuart's biggest fan - and critic - is his six-year-old daughter, who can often be found sitting on his lap in his study as he types away on his next novel.
