THE CAPTAIN'S WITCH

Her kiss can maim you

Her eyes can blind you

Her bed is shadows . . .

She is the dark of the moon

She is all that is dear

And she is death

Can you trust her?

Where will her lantern lead you?

"One of the greatest dark fantasies ever written -- in any genre."

Rosemary Hawley Jarman was born in Worcester, England and came to fame in 1971 with her novel We Speak No Treason. Reprinted many times, the book's hero is the much maligned King Richard III. It sold 30,000 copies in its first week of publication, and gained her the prestigious Author's Club Silver Quill for best first novel, while in the U.S.A. she was nominated as a Daughter of Mark Twain. Further equally successful novels followed, also an illustrated account of the Battle of Agincourt. She lives in an antique stone cottage between sea and mountain in West Wales. The Captain's Witch is her first fantasy novel, and she is now working on a sequel.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Masquerading as human, Queen Malkar of Karenia preserves her youth by drawing out the souls of her subjects. When a captain of the rival kingdom enters Malkar's lands on a diplomatic mission, a series of events topples thrones and causes death as well as love in both lands. An accomplished and award-winning author of historical fiction (We Speak No Treason), Jarman infuses her first fantasy with period detail, drawing from the Austro-Hungarian Empire of the 1800s for atmosphere while building strong, passionate characters. VERDICT Reminiscent of works by Tanith Lee and Storm Constantine in its emphasis on sensual details and exotic eroticism, this tale of love, revolution, and magic also sparkles with often unexpected touches of humor. A good choice for mature fantasy readers.

Exceptional writing style leads you through intrigue, political ambition, vampaire lust, and true romance. Clever plot to entice the reader and rewarding emotional tension. This one is a must.
