His des I usually do not read historical fiction, mainly because it reminds me of History class in high school.
His descriptive voice is magic and his characters, good and bad , convey depth and complexity. The story opened my eyes to a period I knew very little about and helped me understand the fragility and torment of man's faith in a Church seemingly bent toward ungodly pursuits. Reading The Witch Hunter's Amulet has made me a convert to historical fiction, at least when it is written by Marco Lobo.

In these pages, feared and reviled witch hunter Manuel Andrade is sent by his Catholic church masters to the far reaches of the Portuguese empire—in this case to Goa, India, where Andrade arrives in and, like most newcomers to India, is immediately felled by the heat, the humidity, the very strangeness of the place.
The novel is also filled with the local sights, sounds, and customs of 16 th -century India, from crowded bazaars to tiger hunts. A very entertaining debut novel.
