The Salem Witch Trials were as we all know a horrific turning point in history. It showed people how far their paranoia could lead them to; murder, persecution, and betrayal. Unknown to the humans, however, there were actually real witches located not just in Salem but all over the world including other magical beings like fairies, vampire, werewolves etc. However, once the events of the Salem Witch trials came to be the other races began to fear exposure to the humans and without so much as a second thought all the witches of the world were hunted down and killed. There was not one witch whom survived the genocide or at least that's what all the vampires, werewolves, and other races thought. But one day a girl named Aradia moves to Salem, MA and all that changes.
I got contacted by the author of this book, L.A.Jones herself for me to read and review this book. I never agree to read and review a book that doesn't sound good, so any I do accept to read needs to sound like a book I would love. The cover is very interesting and that helped with me agreeing to read and review this book. The title which included the work "Witch" always helps me out as I love stories which includes magic etc. The description was the last thing which won me over to reading it, I mean who doesn't want to read a book were the description makes you want to read the book right at that instance.
I really liked this book, for so many reasons which I will explain now. First reason why I liked this book was it has a great unique storyline, though uses Witches, Vampires and Werewolves, but the fact is she doesn't over use them and its not the same old story where a vampire falls head over heels for the main character which I really loved about this. Second reason why i liked this book was the way it flowed and how I could read it so easily without thinking, "what does that mean", "I'm confused" or "When did that happen". I knew everything that happened and how things were happening so I was never lost of and I didn't have to go back to read anything I may of forgot about. The last reason why I loved this book so much was the way she portrayed the characters in this book and how they are all never perfect and that they all have flaws and issues.
I have to honest in this review and say the beginning it felt like it wasn't as good as when it got the middle onwards but it still was good so that to me was 1 of the only errors I found in this book other than... "WHY DID IT END SO SOON!!!??".
The characters as I said above was portrayed in such a great way, and I loved each character in different ways, even the bad guys. I mean everyone loves a bad guy in a story.
Aradia the main character knows she's different and maybe special in a way, but its only caused her bother in the past so she will start a new life in a new place and hopefully she can be just like any other normal teen. Well that doesn't go to plan... not really.
I love Aradia so much, its un real. She is a strong character and she doesn't deserve what happens to her and the pain she has gone through in her past. I really admire her as she tries her best to fit in and make friends.
Overall in my opinion I really liked this book and I can't wait for the 2nd book to be released which I know is very soon.
Thank you L.A. Jones for asking me to read and review because it was a really good book to read.
I would recommend this book if you want to try something different to the normal Witchy, Vampire books you have read in the past.
