Book Review/Blast-The Witch's Salvation-Francesca Pelaccia

Monday, October 7, 2013

For over 500 years a curse has been in place on two immortal families. One of the families cannot leave their land and the other family cannot go back to their homeland. It is the 21st century and a mortal has been born into each of these families. The witch who placed the curse manuvers these two into agreeing to marry--which neither wants to do. When they are suddenly whisked into the past (just before their marriage ceremony) they begin to learn all the family secrets to which they were never privy. They have a very short time frame to right the wrongs of their ancestors. Since this is the time of " Prince Dracula " they are witness to many atrocities and have to semi conform to the time they are in. If I say much more I will give away the book and its ending. I will say that this author was able to seamlessly incorporate some historical fact with fiction beautifully.

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.
