Publishers WeeklyIn the charming second book of the Traitor to the Crown historical fantasy trilogy, Finlay continues to adeptly reimagine the American Revolution. Magical and mundane terrors follow Proctor Brown, newly trained witch, and Deborah Walcott, Quaker sorceress, as they venture from New England to the battlefields of New York and New Jersey. Proctor and Deborah seek to save unwary witches from the Covenant, an international cabal of power-hungry mages, and must maneuver through the Battle of Long Island, the crossing of the Delaware and the Christmas attack on Trenton. Finlay's clean, clear prose unites imaginative magic and a strong historical foundation. The book delivers inspired, historically-informed nuggets, including Proctor and Deborah inspiring Thomas Paine and saving Betsy Ross. History and fantasy buffs alike will delight in the mystic reworking of well-known events, and fans of romance will enjoy the deepening relationship between Procter and Deborah.
