Customer Reviews

Bittersweet ending and a great finish to this amazing series.
Amazon Customer
There are also a lot of weirdly specific and completely unnecessary details that end up making it seem like the author was struggling to fill the pages.
Laura
I hope there is another book in this series, so I will be checking to see if there is one to follow.

After feeling only so-so about Serpent's Kiss, the prequel to this and the second in the Witches of East End series, I went into Winds of Salem not knowing what to expect. However, Winds of Salem managed to restore my love for this series, as it possessed the same charm and witchy goodness that the first one contained.

Winds of Salem picks up a little while after Serpent's Kiss left off. In present day, the Beauchamp family is trying to bring Freya home while dealing with their own wide variety of personal problems, big and small. On the other hand, Freya is back in the 1600s, sent to relive the one thing she'd never thought she have to: the Salem Witch Trials. One of the big problems I had with the second book was the lack of connection I felt to the main characters, but luckily, that problem vanished within this one. I enjoyed how Melissa split the book up into various sections, as it allowed for a well developed sense of what was going on in both worlds and some suspense. In addition, I suddenly seemed to care about the characters once again...something just seemed to click. I particularly enjoyed finding out more about 1600 era Freya as well as seeing more of Freddie who weirdly began to grow on me as the story progressed.

The plot in this was also filled with action and lots of suspense, as mentioned before. I enjoyed seeing more about the Salem Witch Trials. In my opinion, Melissa did a great job of catching the scene and feelings associated with this time, which made the overall reading experience even better. It was also exciting to see what was occurring back in present day, especially when it involved my favorite characters: the pixies. The scenes with them and Freddie were always priceless!

What I liked the most about this book, though, was the ending.

Format: Hardcover
This is the third volume in the Witches of East End series. The passages of time are closed with Freya Beauchamp stuck in 1692 with no way to get back. Freya must relive the horror of the Salem witch trials while her parents frantically try to reopen the passages and rescue her. If they don't succeed, Freya's life will be forfeited forever. Being immortal will not help her this time and she'll never be reborn again.

This story opens in 1692 and I was immediately pulled into the story. I loved Freya's character as we're given a glimpse of what life in Puritan Salem was like for young maids. Back in present time, Freya's parents are frantically trying to find a way to save her along with her sister Ingrid, the local librarian, who is reading every account of the period she can find. The author does a great job of flipping between present day and 1692 to keep the action moving. I was happy to see more of Ingrid as she tries to navigate loving a mortal man. Will Joanna and Norman find a way to reopen the passages and save their daughter? And what's going on with her twin Freddie? He's searching for his Trident and embarks on a perilous journey of his own. Everything is connected in this wonderful magical journey. It's my favorite book so far, but I would recommend that you read books 1 and 2 to get the full flavor of the Beauchamp family. Recommended.

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

The storyline picks up right where the last book left off. There's suspense and long lost romance. Then, towards the end, everything becomes rushed and confusing. Complex characters with a intricate backstory are introduced from no where, the conflict is resolved with little climax, and the main character's lives almost seem to come to a close-- leaving me to wonder if this was the last book. If it was, it's a rushed end to a rather well done series.

I really liked the first two books in this series. Unfortunately I didn't like this one as much. I kept getting bored in the beginning portion of the book, when Freya is in Salem. I thought the whole book had a very melancholy depressive tone to it. I am not sure if I will continue this series.

Posted first on Blog Critics as Book Review:'Winds of Salem' by Melissa De La Cruz

When a magic spell casts Freya Beauchamp back to 1692 Salem, she is locked in a time when witches are being persecuted. In Winds of Salem by Melissa De La Cruz, we follow the life of a young Freya as she finds the tides against her changing.

De La Cruz moves through the story from present to past and back again in an effort for those who searching for Freya to find the reasoning for the transference. When first going through the witch trials of Salem, while she died as did many did, they were able to come back at another time and place. This time though, if they cannot change the fate of Freya, she will die with no return. The rips in the fabric of time and the strange power surges make rescue impossible.

Can Freya resist the urge to use her power, or will she be caught up again and lose her life in the historical challenge of the witch trials. Her family is working all venues to try and find the answers, hoping that she will make the right decisions, yet knowing that with no memory of prior events she will not understand the possible consequences of her actions.

The characters are the same ones we have come to know through her Witches of East End series, full of fun and devilment, yet now a darker twist adds a foreboding suspense that will hold you in thrall. To save Freya, her family must face some danger of their own, casting a wide net of inevitability to the possible consequences of being caught up in the machinations of those trying to destroy them.

The shift between times and places is done smoothly, and the description of events keeps you on the edge of your seat as the Beauchamp family tries to right the magic.
