Salem, Massachusetts-1692. A plague of witches and dark magic has descended upon the village of Salem. When a court of Oyer and Terminer is called by the governor to bring the guilty to trial, Judge Jacob Blackthorne and the Reverend Cotton Mather are are tasked with discovering the cause for all of this evil. The trouble is, Jacob Blackthorne is part of the problem. Fifteen years ago, he was seduced by a witch named Abigail Colman. One night in the woods outside of Salem Village, she shared her secret with him-the power of the Sangreal-a magical elixir that forestalls the natural process of death... for a price. Now cursed with near-eternal youth and the loss of his soul, Jacob prays that he can yet find a path to salvation. Instead, he uncovers a conspiracy dating back to Biblical times. "With To Suffer a Witch, Christopher Treagus has created a dark fantasy masterpiece. An emotional gauntlet full of brooding atmosphere and prose as sharp as a razor, this is one you don't want to miss!" - Brian Keene, author, The Rising, City of the Dead and The Conqueror Worms "Treagus depicts another time and place with his characterization of Salem in the 1600s. The subject matter makes To Suffer a Witch unique, as the language and actions of the people cast in the story are as though you are a witness to those days. Treagus provides many insights into how people lived in that time as his main character, Jacob Blackthorne, reveals how his depravity caused him to fall into the clutches of a witch and become cursed forever. His journey to regain his soul delves into the dark and sordid world of witchcraft, yet justice is served to reaffirm the perception of good surpassing evil." - The Quill Review
