Blog Tour Review: The Witch’s Salvation by Francesca Pelaccia



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.


The Witch’s Salvation is full of history and myth. The first couple of chapters were a little slow but once it gets going it keeps your attention. It’s very descriptive and full of historical facts from the 1400s. Francesca Pelaccia has taken some creative license but notes at the end of the book what is fact and what is fiction, which I really liked.
It’s easy to like the two main characters, Annie and Matthias. They’ve both been put in an impossible position, expected by their families to give up their freedom for the families’ sakes and they end up doing what true heroes would do, even if it was inadvertently. I also enjoyed the development of their relationship, as well as how they turned out to be so much better than they thought they were.
I’m looking forward to the next book in this trilogy. I definitely recommend The Witch’s Salvation, especially if you like historical fiction and mythical tales.
Buy the book from Barnes & Noble or Amazon.
