The Prisoner

(The first book in the Witches series)
A novel by

It was a time of fear. The great Civil War which had split the country from top to bottom still raged. The King was rumoured to have fled but robber bands of his troop still luked in the mist, marouding gangs of deadly spectres waiting for the innocent. In the absence of King and Parliament, terror ruled with mistrust and murder close behind. But there was no greater terror than the Witchfinders.....Living on torture, bribery and lust they took rich pickings as they scoured each parish and hamlet for victims. John Ferris was sworn to fight their rule of bloody atrocities-to take revenge for his father's death and his lover's abduction - to fight the storm of darkness with the sword.
