Sarah Hoyt’s Witchfinder is now available in a Kindle edition:
In Avalon, where the world runs on magic, the king of Britannia appoints a witchfinder to rescue unfortunates with magical power from lands where magic is a capital crime. Or he did. But after the royal princess was kidnapped from her cradle twenty years ago, all travel to other universes has been forbidden, and the position of witchfinder abolished. Seraphim Ainsling, Duke of Darkwater, son of the last witchfinder, breaks the edict. He can’t simply let people die for lack of rescue. His stubborn compassion will bring him trouble and disgrace, turmoil and danger — and maybe, just maybe, the greatest reward of all.
I’ve been going through her back catalog these last couple of years, and she usually puts out a new book just as I’m finishing one of her old ones. Last year’s big new release, A Few Good Men, is a finalist for the Prometheus Award. Her “Darkship” world that one is set in is one of my favorites in recent Sci-Fi.
