Description

Eight pale hands - some with fingers stripped down to the bone - rose out of the earth. Slimy with rain, the rat-gnawed heads of four soldiers loomed into view. They moaned at the sky and their cry moulded itself into a word: 'FLLLLLLEEESSSSSSSSHHHHH!' The Demon Father has escaped from hell and walks among us, his trident symbol branded into the earth in countries all over the world. A scorching beacon. A call to arms. A sign that war is coming. Jake is struggling to harness his powers and live up to his reputation of the boy who closed the demon door. But now he must push all doubt aside. To stop the Demon Father Jake must change the course of history - embark on a treacherous journey deep into the past and into another dimension, filled with horror and pain. A place where innocent people are tried and tortured. A place where the law of the Witchfinder rules. Let the rushes be lit for there will be gallows at twilight.show more

Review quote

Praise for Witchfinder: Dawn of the Demontide: A series to savour. William Hussey [has] a master's eye for the minutiae of fear: the quickened pulse, the hairs' bristle, and the way-in moments of purest terror - that time seems to slow to a stop. Sam Enthoven, author of Crawlers and The Black Tattoo William Hussey's Witchfinder trilogy is ... A full-throated horror tale that doesn't shrink from confronting mortality head on ... This ever-present shadow of death brings a quickening sense of terror' SFX Absolutely brilliant! It's dark, it's edgy, and it's dangerous. Amazon reviewer Cleverly crafted, this is a masterful horror story that will chill readers to the bone. Julia Eccleshare, Lovereading4kids.co.uk Every 10 years or so comes a book that leaves all rivals in its wake ... and Witchfinder is The One ... The closest thing you'll find to horror heaven. Lancashire Evening Post Exciting, intelligent and fast-paced, horror and fantasy collide in the best possible way. A great beginning, which leaves me wanting more. Amazon Vine reviewershow more
