“A story told before the Salem Witch Trials that takes you deep into the truth of what really triggered the trials. Magic, Spells, Revenge, Death and Love. Don’t miss this nonstop thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat… wanting more.”

When I first saw this book, my inner girl squealed. I’m not ashamed to admit that. I saw the adorable redhead on the cover and went ooooh..this is a book I want to read. Of course, that same inner girl scoffed at the high heeled boots. She’s still of the opinion that no self-respecting forest type heroine would wear boots like that...
