Elizabeth Grey is one of the best witch hunters inUpminster she was devoted to ridding the world of magic and anyone who practiced it along with her childhood friend and crush Caleb. But when she isaccused of being a witch, arrested, and sentenced toburn at the stake, help comes from the most unlikelyperson. Nicholas Perevil, her enemy, leader of the reformists, and the strongest and most wantedwizard in the kingdom. Nicholas promises Elizabeth'ssafety in return for her breaking a deadly curse thathas been put on him. Although, Nicholas and his followers know nothing of her witch-hunting past. Ifthey find out, her best friend Caleb hunting her down will be the least of her worries. As Elizabeth is throwninto a world of witches, ghosts, pirates, and one veryhandsome healer, she reinvents her perspective on magic, friends and foes, right and wrong, and loveand hate.

This book points out that maybe your views on some things are muddled orconfused (perhaps by others), but once you realize your mistakes you can change yourself for the better.Or, as Nicholas so eloquently said to Elizabeth, "You can't undo your past. You know that aswell as I. But you also can't forsee the future. Not even Veda's prophecy can do that. What you want to do next, who you want to be, where you want to belong, that's entirely up to you. As I always say, nothing is written in stone."

Elizabeth shows a lot ofgrit, especially when she is in a horrible condition,which happens frequentlybecause she is being targeted, and she bouncesback only to go back into battle.

Your Bigest enemy isnt what you fight,but what you fear.

(Elizabeth and Fifer have just been caught by a few gaurds) I've got to get us out of here. I've got one gaurd on my back, the other standing next to me. I've got that triple dagger in my boot, but since my hands are pinned beneath my chest, what good is it? I'm almost tempted to call for Shuyler (a friend of Fifer's who is a revenant and can hear all). Then I remember the necklace (that protects them from Shuyler hearing their thoughts) and realize he won't hear me. Which means I'm on my own. I've got to get out of these manacles, but I don't know how. Then I get an idea.Quietly, slowly, I break my own thumbs. First one, then the other, gritting my teeth against the pain. I slip my hands out of the bindings, hear a quiet crack as the bones snap back into place. Then I go still. Have the gaurds noticed? No, they're too busy calling encouragement to the ones still teasing Fifer. They're such idiots. Now they're going to pay for it. I flatten my hands underneath me. In a flash, I buck the gaurd off my back. Land in a crouch and yank the dagger from my boot. The gaurd who rolled off me, I grab him by the hair and stab him in the neck. He falls back to the ground, dead.

The passage above is an example of Elizabeth showing grit because even though the odds are against them and they areoutnumbered, she doesn't give up and frees herself and thentries to free Fifer. In this excerpt Elizabeth shows perserverance, sacrifice (of thumbs for a few seconds), and smarts.

You should read this book because it is a action packed fantasy book with humor and some romance, but it also has a very good message that says that you can't change your past but only you can make your future. This book is also only one in a series thats in the making. So far there is only 2 books out. The other is The Healer which is the story told from John, the healer's, POV. I have also read that book at is was equally as good and i look forward to the next books
