Burning Witches

With a provocative cover and an interesting title, Salem Burning by Daniel Sugar presents the continuing story of a witch as she passes through interesting times from the 1500s to the 1700s. From the beginning of the story, the reader assumes this will be a story of witchcraft but only after several pages does the author develop the “witchery.” It develops slowly with the administration of a poison to Kyle while he sleeps. The poison does not kill but seduces Kyle into believing he is in love with the plain-looking Lilly. Sugar entices the reader with the promise of secrets to be soon revealed.
