About the book:
Unknown to the humans who hanged innocent people at the Salem Witch Trials, real witches of the hidden race were slaughtered on the belief that they had betrayed the hiddens to the humans. Not one witch survived the genocide, or so it was believed for more than three hundred years. Until one day a girl named Aradia moves to Salem, Massachusetts, and all that changes.

Upon starting this book, I was like, great another Vampire/ Werewolf love triangle; but was pleasantly surprised that the author did not dwell on that too much. But had the young heroine focus more on finding herself than the guys. The story has some history in it, which is awesome, about the Salem Witch trials. This is where the story begins, and then branched away from history and into fantasy. There are some gory/ terrible parts where people die. The author does not go into great depths here, but leaves it up to the reader’s imagination.
