Teaser Tuesday: The Last Witch of Langenburg

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme by MizB17.

Here's how it works: 
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

"The court then followed up, inquiring about her gloomy prophecies on her fate. Again she wavered."
The Last Witch of Langenburg by Thomas Robisheaux, p. 210.

I finally picked this book up again after weeks of letting it sit. I had to return it to the library and reserve it again. I really do intend to get through it this time. It's on my list of books to read for my 101 Things in 1001 Days.

The book is an in-depth look at one of the last witch trials in Germany in the 1600s. So far, it's not at all what I expected. To say more would be to spoil what I consider to be one of the most interesting aspects of the story.

  1. Wait - they had witch trials in Germany? I'm severly uneducated in this topic! But I don't want to struggle to learn about it. Sounds like this one is a challenge.
