Annabel Horton, Lost Witch of SalemAnnabel Horton, Lost Witch of Salem by Vera Jane Cook
My rating: 3 and 3/4 of 5 stars

Book Blurb:
From the Salem Witch trials through the Nineteenth Century and beyond, Annabel Horton is pursued by the devil’s disciple, Urban Grandier, the demonic priest from the incident at Loudon. She must take the bodies of those that the devil favors to protect her family.
She must uncover the motive behind the illusive Ursula/Louis Bossidan, the scandalous cross-dresser who is pursuing her beautiful granddaughter, and she must learn, being one of God’s most powerful witches, how to use her power. But will it be enough to save her husband from Urbain’s fiery inferno? Will it be enough to save her children from demons greater than themselves?

My review:
Annabel Horton is cursed. This story, written in the style of classical literature, describes Annabel's journey through the dimensions of time trying to reunite with her loved ones and fight the evil force that is torturing them all.

The book has an adult content warning up front which is quite warranted. This was a very different type of book for me - much darker than I usually read. Although dark, it is not overly graphic which I appreciate.
