The Scourge of Jericho (Witch Hunter Chronicles #1)
|Series:||Witch Hunter Chronicles|
Strap on your swords for one hell of a ride.
It's 1666, and the forces of darkness are spreading across Europe. Dreaming of wielding a blade in epic battles like the father he never knew, sixteen-year-old Jakob von Drachenfels falsifies a letter of introduction to join the Hexenjager - an elite military order of witch hunters. He soon learns a lesson in the dangers of ambition when he finds himself selected for a team sent to recover a biblical relic from a witch-infested castle. But when the team is betrayed from within, what was already a difficult mission turns into a desperate struggle for survival.
Epic battles, impossible quests, enemies on all sides, witch hunting and demon slaying...
Stuart Daly is a history teacher in a private high school in Sydney. Inspired by the works of Dumas, 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 17th century. His biggest fan - and critic - is his five-year-old daughter, who can often be found sitting on his lap in his study as he types away on his next novel. The Scourge of Jericho is his first book, and he is currently finishing Volume Two in The Witch Hunter Chronicles.
