Plot summary

Witch Hunter is a dark fantasy novel that tells the story of Ludlov, one of the most respected witch hunters in Sevenpeaks. When Sevenpeaks is overtaken by fear and death, all magic users are blamed for this turmoil. In an attempt to save the city, the Grand General Lady Hoskiv enforces the Magicide Act, which orders the witch hunters to kill all magic users, no exceptions… Ludlov suspects that Samina, a young witch, has more information on the evil cult that killed his wife. After a visit to the dungeon where she’s imprisoned before her execution, he is torn between giving up on his plan for revenge or giving up his reputation.

This is the first novel in The Witch Hunter series, that is set in a gothic fantasy world. The story takes place in and around the biggest city of Ivennendale, Sevenpeaks. The story resolves around Witch Hunter Master Ludlov, former magistrate and widower.

Meanwhile, two spin-offs have been released: The Beast of the Western Wilds, a tale that takes place a couple of years prior to Witch Hunter and The Treasure of Boneyard Bay, a story about Ludlov’s early years with the Witch Hunter Order as an initiate, sent on his first big quest. And this won’t be the last of Ludlov’s adventures… We are currently writing Grauwald’s Game, a deeply disturbing Witch Hunter spin-off. [edit: 2024]
