The King Slayer (The Witch Hunter #2) by Virginia Boecker (Review)

    The second instalment of The Witch Hunter series, The King Slayer takes place following the previous novel as Elizabeth and her compatriots prepare to dethrone the monstrous uncle to the rightful king, Lord Blackwell. Having lost her powers, Elizabeth is challenged with her value and the added danger she is now in because of her mortality. Along the way she bonds with with her new found friends and the man she loves, while she copes with the loss of those in her passed that are now dead. Action packed and full of danger, The King Slayer concludes the series in a fulfilling way.
      I enjoyed The Witch Hunter, even though some parts of it hurt my heart to read. Readers grow to respect Elizabeth even more in this novel as we witness her willingness to sacrifice herself to stop Blackwell and save her loved ones. She is flawed enough to be human, while still preforming acts of courage that are inhuman. The romance in this novel was average. It was heart warming, but nothing to write home about. It was sweet but not inspiring. I also found that although most of the plot was solid, there were some plot points that seemed to be under-explained. They were lacking in just a little more detail to clear things up for the readers. I enjoyed The Witch Hunter series and give The King Slayer the rating of FOUR OUT OF FIVE STARS!
