She sold her soul, and her body for the power of the damned.

Alys kept this dream of her future to herself, to give her hope through the years of pain and starvation until she was old enough to run away and seek her fortune.

But the world was not kind to her, and she found that she had to be harsh, ruthless and cruel to achieve her ambitions. She was even willing to join a witches’ coven to practice their potions on the King, and so become his mistress.

S. F. Roland - Witch Mark

Blurb:

Life in Tudor England was very hard for all but the landed gentry. The fear of witchcraft was prominent in people’s minds.

When Mary True’s parents are taken to London and burned as witches, she knows that they – as well as so many others – are innocent.

She follows them to the big city. Penniless, barefoot, lost and knowing no-one, she is determined to know the truth. Why were her parents so wrongfully punished?

Thanks to Justin Marriott of Paperback Fanatic for the cover scan.
