Synopses & Reviews
Matthew Reilly meets Van Helsing in this insanely, relentlessly fast-paced series about the witch hunters who protect us from the forces of evil—any way they can
The year is 1666 and the forces of darkness are spreading across Europe. Dreaming of wielding a blade in epic battles like the father he never knew, Jakob von Drachenfels falsifies a letter of introduction to join the Hexenjäger—an elite military order of witch hunters. He soon learns a lesson in the dangers of ambition when he finds himself selected for a team sent to recover a biblical relic from a witch-infested castle. But when the team is betrayed from within, what was already a difficult mission turns into a desperate struggle for survival.
"This is Dumas on steroids . . . . Once this book takes off it never lets the reader go, with witches, demons and spies." —Daily Telegraph
"Three Musketeers-meets-Matthew-Reilly with a touch of Indiana Jones." —January Magazine
"Daly's novel mixes the swashbuckling heroism of The Three Musketeers with the agreeable idiocy of one of Reilly's adrenaline pumpers. Daly and Reilly write books that aren't meant to be critically dissected: they're built to entertain, and they do that with gleeful gusto." —Courier Mail
"A great read, laden with cliffhangers at the end of each chapter, double agents and twists and miraculous escapes from certain death . . . . Recommended." —Fiction Focus
