Summary

From celebrated fantasy author Den Patrick comes Witchsign, the first novel in a fresh and exciting new fantasy trilogy.

It has been 75 years since the dragons’ rule of fire and magic was ended. Out of the ashes, the Solmindre Empire was born.

Since then, the tyrannical Synod has worked hard to banish all manifestations of the arcane from existence. However, children are still born bearing the taint of the arcane, known to all as witchsign. Vigilants are sent out across the continent of Vinterkveld to find and capture all those bearing the mark.

No one knows when the Vigilants of the Synod will appear and enforce the Empire’s laws.

But today they’re coming.

And gods help those who bear the sign of the witch.

Here be dragons!

An excellent start to what I'm sure will be a brilliant new fantasy series. Thomas Judd's narration brings a great story to life. Sharply drawn characters, a plot that barrels along at breakneck pace, and a world full of intrigue and unpredictable magic. Oh, and there's dragons too. What more could you want?

Great fantasy fun

I’ve just finished Witchsign after only 4 days of listening. Fast paced, likeable characters with great world building. I can’t wait for the next in the series!
