From the introduction:
Most hunters associate witches with hoary paganistic spells, bubbling cauldrons and weighty tomes. Even those who don’t fit the stereotype are deemed to indulge in the same sorts of hazardous and reckless behavior, using their mysticism to twist the rules of the world inside out to satisfy their arcane hungers for power, wealth or “wisdom.” Preconceived hunter notions about witches may be turned on their head, though, as this tale proceeds.
Hunters confront monsters; that’s the defining trait of a hunter’s existence. While bloodsuckers and shapeshifters may be self-motivated, some creatures work in tandem with other hazards, or even with humans who can control them. Any hunter who considers witch-hunting knows of stories about witches conjuring demons, ghosts, even the Devil himself. If ever there were evidence of the ill intentions of magicians, it’s made manifest in the association of spellbinders with otherworldly creatures that prey upon humans.
In this story, the hunters will confront witches with all-too-human flaws, and a monster far more dangerous than any simple human. Along the way, the hunters will have to decide how much they can compromise, what to do when faced with a foe much stronger than themselves, and whether to accept magic as some sort of necessary step in combating the darkness.
