Ready to swoon?
This enchanting cover has got us ALL kinds of pumped up. Ever since we finished The Witch Hunter, we just can’t stop fantasizing about the second book in this oh-so-addicting series. The struggle is real! THANKFULLY, virgboecker—the rockstar author that she is—made the wait a little bit easier with a brand new story about a certain swoony guy we all know and love (!). And this kick-butt look makes all of our hopes and dreams officially official: The Healer is coming!
So what’s this e-short all about?
John Raleigh, one of the youngest and most talented magical healers in all of Anglia, can relieve any ailment except, perhaps, his own broken heart. Since the deaths of his mother and sister who burned at the stake for witchcraft, John has spent his nights lost in nightmares and his days drowning in melancholy. That is until he’s summoned to the home of Nicholas Perevil, the most powerful wizard in the kingdom, who suffers from a mysterious illness that has confounded every other healer.
John immediately knows that this is no normal sickness. Nicholas, it seems, is falling apart because of a dangerous curse, and their only clue for a cure is a single name–Elizabeth Grey.
Who is this girl and how has she become mixed up with such dark magic? John must put these questions aside when Elizabeth is brought to him from the palace’s prison on the brink of death. It will take everything he has to save her, and to save Nicholas, but perhaps he’ll manage to save his heart along the way.
DOUBLE SIGH. Virginia, you are way too good to us. We didn’t think it was possible to love John even more…OK maybe we did. But for real, our hearts are already exploding just thinking about this juicy tale! This one is definitely just what the healer doctor ordered.
