And so it begins with 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.
Francesca Cesario Pelaccia grew up in Toronto, Canada, and went to the University of Toronto, where she studied English literature. She started her working career moving in and out of teaching and corporate editing and publishing before settling on teaching adults English as a Second Language.
The Witch’s Salvation is Francesca’s first published novel. She has many other manuscripts in various stages of completion and genres gathering dust on her bookshelves. But it was not until The Witch’s Salvation that she “found her voice”. Francesca lives just outside Toronto with her family. She is working on the second book of the Witch’s trilogy, entitled, The Witch’s Monastery.
The Witch’s Salvation is brimming with action, adventure, mortals and immortals alike; wrapped up in a time travel adventure with and eye for detail.
The two young mortals will struggle to come to terms each with their perspective immortal families and their immediate families previous acts in history over 500 years ago, to help right a wrong as instructed by the witch seeking salvation.
As they struggle to find the items requested by the witch and search for Matthias father who has vanished from the 21 century. Anasztasia and Matthias will relive a most horrific time in history; during the reign of Vaud III, Prince Dracula. Seeing first hand the destruction the prince and his cronies have caused in their families homeland and on the bloody battle field.
I’m not going to add much more because the story line is really something to experience step by step instead of me giving away the fate of the families involved in a brief review. Suffice to say this would be prefect reading for the spooky season that is known a Halloween!
