The Witch's Salvation - Review

Stay up to date with everything on Book Worm & More by Subscribing to our Email.

A witch who demands humanity.

The immortal families who denied her of it.

Two mortals commanded to right the wrong.

That is the fate of the urban princess Anasztasia and the renegade prince Matthias, born shockingly mortal to two immortal families. If they go back in time and restore the witch’s humanity, she will grant them immortality. She will also break a 550 year-old curse that imprisons Matthias’s family in their ancestral homeland and exiles Anasztasia’s family from it.

But to make their lives their own, the heirs must return to the most dangerous day in their families’ past, Easter Sunday, 1457. This is the day Vlad III, aka Dracula, massacred all nobles and their families involved in the death of his father and older brother.

How can Anasztasia and Matthias reverse the past when their families will not speak of their wrongs? How can they refuse when the witch owns their lives?

The Witch’s Salvation is a time-travel fantasy weaved around myth, historical fact, and a whole lot of creative license.


Here is another great book for you guys to check out - The Witch's Salvation.  It's perfect for Halloween.  What's not to love at Halloween?  Witches, Immortals, and more.  Anyway, as most of my readers know, I love books with a touch of the supernatural.  I also love books with a touch of history.  This book is the best of two worlds.  It has a touch of romance, some mystery, a dash of history, a pinch of suspense, and a dash of supernatural - the perfect recipe for a great book.

I got hooked on this book pretty quickly.  The Witch's Salvation will pull you in like you are under some kind of spell.  While some of the relationships seemed a little rushed, it did not take anything away from the book.  My only disappoint was the ending.  I wanted more, and there definitely looks like there will be more to come.  I just wonder how long we have to wait for the next book.  I'll just have to wait - not one of my favorite things.  I'm a very impatient person when comes to waiting for books to come out.  Even though, there's not really anything I can do about it.

I might be kind of weird but when I'm reading a book I really like I dream about it.  So, not only do I have a mental movie of it while I'm reading I also dream about it.  I become consumed or obsessed, depending on your viewpoint.  :)  Needless to say, I became consumed with this book.

Teens will love this book.  They will be able to identify with the characters, especially Anastasia and Matthias.  What teen doesn't get sick of their parents/family telling them what to do and how to behave.  I give this one 4 1/2 stars out of 5.

But it was not until The Witch’s Salvation that she “found her voice”. Francesca lives just outside Toronto with her family.
