Blurb: History isn’t dead when you’re living it.
Ash and Grant are about to learn why it was called the Dark Ages, when Merlin, in the guise of their teacher, once again sends them time traveling to reclaim one of the antiquities their prank destroyed: a book called the Malleus Maleficarum, or Hammer of the Witches, which was used to persecute and kill innocent people throughout medieval Europe.
They’ll need to keep their heads down and their wits about them in a Germany ruled by the iron fist of the Inquisition, where anyone who is different is dragged off to horrifying prisons, tortured to confession, and ultimately killed in the worst way imaginable. But it won’t be easy to navigate a frightening and brutal time, secure Merlin’s book, and make it home without attracting attention.
Review: The next item that Grant and Ash are to retrieve in their time traveling punishment to replace artifacts that were destroyed due to their fighting is a book called the Malleus Maleficarum or The Hammer of the Witch. This single book sent hundreds of people to their deaths in the most horrifying ways.
This task will not be easy. It’s the middle ages and a time where all are suspicious of things that are different and quickly dealt with. This task ends up with Ash retrieving the book but Grant being captured. Now Ash has to save Grant, keep the book safe and get all back to their own time before their demise.
Hair raising and adventurous this story has a great history interwoven between the dialogue of the characters. the details were amazing and the characters intriguing.
A great addition to the series.
