#BlogTour To Snare a Witch: Bell, Book and Candle by Jay Raven


Today it's my turn on the BlogTour To Snare a Witch: Bell, Book and Candle by Jay Raven.
About the Author
Jay Raven is the author of Gothic chillers and historical horror reminding readers that the past is a dangerous place to venture, full of monsters and murderous men. He blames his fascination with vampires, witches and werewolves on the Hammer Horror films he watched as a teenager, but living in a creepy old house on the edge of a 500-acre wood may have something to do with it.

About the book
A Chilling historical tale of lust, sorcery and devastating revenge
No female dares spurn the lecherous advances of Sir Henry Cruttendon, 17th Century England’s most reviled nobleman. To do so risks a retribution that would terrify the Devil himself.
But Elizabeth Fiennes is no ordinary woman, blessed with stunning beauty,  intelligence and guile. Coming from an influential family, she believes she is safe.

What she doesn’t understand is that the Earl is determined to satisfy his lust and plans to use the wave of witch trials, fear and superstition  sweeping the countryside to force her into his clutches.
And as he springs his malicious trap it triggers a chain of unholy events plunging hunter and prey into a maelstrom of deceit, terror and depravity – leaving them both staring into the face of true evil...
Review
This is a novella length read and I have to say Raven uses every single page to draw readers in with this flipped on its lid take on the historical witch purges.

Imagine, if you will, the witch purges from a purely economical point of view. If riling up the crowds and executing innocent people after torturing them was a profitable business venture, then that would put an entirely different slant on the whole thing, right?

When the disgusting Sir Cruttendon decides to get what he wants by using the ploy of naming, shaming and killing a witch he doesn't realise he might be messing with the wrong person. The kind of person who is willing to do absolutely anything to get revenge and save a loved one.

It's historical paranormal fantasy. The first in the To Snare a Witch series. It's a quick read and a turbulent one, despite the length Raven manages to fit everything in from sexual encounters to the most potent of potions. It can get a wee bit lecherous at times, but then again Crittendon is a lech.

It's a short entertaining venture into the world of witchcraft.
