The Sorceress and the Postgraduate
by Clive Heritage-Tilley

When an Oxford University student decides to commit a crime to help his studies, he gets more than he bargained for. With the help of his new assistant he embarks on an adventure of magic and mystery, in search for secrets locked in the history of time.

It’s 1497 and Albrecht Durer produces the four witches engraving. But there were really five women, not four, and they were sorceresses. All five were condemned to death, but it was decided that the youngest English girl, Constance should be saved and the four sorceresses cast a spell to suspend the youngest girl in time within a bottle.

The bottle and a written spell to release Constance are given to Albrecht to smuggle out of the prison in his bag of art materials. But the bottle is stolen, and only after 17 years is Albrecht able to take it back. When he does eventually regain the bottle Albrecht decides to entrust this and the release spell to his friend, a clock maker who is moving to England.

Centuries later and after many years of being displayed in the Pitt Rivers Museum, the ‘witch in a bottle’ is stolen by Darcy, a postgraduate student looking to further his studies. What ensues is a captivating story as they encounter many famous historical places and faces on their travels through the realms of history.

The Sorceress and the Postgraduate is a thrilling adventure packed with magic and familiar historical faces. It will appeal to readers that enjoy fantasy novels, as well as those interested in history and archaeology. The conclusion of the book also contains an interesting parallel with ongoing political events.
