Coming from a long line of murderous witches hasn’t exactly been sunshine and rainbows for Vianna Roots. When she inherits the family’s haunted house after her mother dies, she decides flipping the rundown dump is her smartest move-but the ghosts that haunt her have a different plan.
When Vianna finds the ghost of her childhood friend Nancy, she’s drawn into the mystery surrounding her friend’s death. Her meddling attracts the attention of the oldest coven in Salem. In order to get her out of town, they make an offer on the house, but Vianna hesitates. She’s no longer sure she wants to abandon the demon familiar who possesses her home, the transgender outcast witch-who may just be the best friend she never knew she needed-and her high school crush, who now wants her in his life.
Vianna must find a way to solve the case of her murdered friend, stay out of the hands of the most powerful coven in Salem, and face the past she’s so desperately tried to run away from.
Uncaged Review: Vianna inherits her family’s haunted house and her initial plan is to get rid of it. When she starts meeting the ghosts that live in the house, the plan is turned upside down with a mystery, since her friend Nancy died in the home. This is a good creepy read that should go on everyone’s reading pile for spooky reads. Based in Salem, Massachusetts, this book does give a good history of the witches in history, but these are the true witches that society didn’t see, and they aren’t all fun and games.
This is a good book, it starts a bit slow but if you keep going it will pick up and grab your interest. The secondary characters are actually a bit of fun, so it levels out the creepiness. The local coven is not helpful and Vianna will have a few hurdles to get over to solve the mystery of her friend’s death. Reviewed by Cyrene
