The Thirteenth Member by Mollie HunterOn a dark night in the 1590s, Adam glimpses the Devil, near his home in East Lothian. Terrified, he is even more alarmed when he discovers that little Gilly, the timid kitchenmaid, is the thirteenth member of a witches coven, and like all the other witches, risks a fiery death at the stake for her devil worship. With the help of the Alchemist, Master Grahame, Adam is determined to foil the coven's plot to kill Scotland's king, James VI. But what is the Alchemist's dreadful secret, and how can Adam save Gilly when he exposes the witches' treason?
'Brings the blackest side of mingled treason and witchcraft in sixteenth-century Scotland rivetingly alive.'
'What a good plot. I've never seen the devil portrayed like this before. I would recommend it to boys and girls aged 10-14.' --Megan Whiteman, age 12, Education Otherwise 'This is dense and complex, and not suitable for readers under 12. It is fascinating to set Hunter's version against the contemporary account, to look at issues of language, religious belief, and justice.'
