"Aaron Galvin has managed to breathe new life into this time era, and Salem's Vengeance is a dark but eye opening look into a frightful time in history."
"What I appreciated about this book was not just the tight and action-packed story (no doubt aided by the author's time in the movie biz) but also the prose."
"This story was beyond clever. I immediately finished it and passed it along to the next eager reader. I cannot wait for the sequel..."
"I was hooked and ended up reading the entire book in one sitting. Anybody that follows my reviews knows five star ratings from me is few and far between but this book is a shining five star!"
"Kept me guessing from the start. I sat and couldn't stop reading till I got to the end. I am looking forward to more in the series."
"As the book goes on and you are sucked into this world, you won't stop until you have read the last page."
"It's one of those books, that seems to bend time while you read it."
"Evil comes in all shapes and sizes in this wickedly good story spun from the events surrounding the Salem Witch Trials...Galvin weaves his research and real people into a story that completely immerses the readers into a believable - yet unbelievable - chain of events that change one town forever."
"I highly recommend this novel. If you enjoy YA fiction, or historical fiction, or straight-up horror, you're going to like this. Danger, mysterious strangers, a touch of romance, thrilling action and gruesome supernatural-inspired horror all combine to make a fantastic read."
"Well researched, fast paced, and intriguing, Salem's Vengeance is the story of both what really happened during the Salem Witch Trials and the aftermath of all that lunacy...it was nice to see that this was merely the first in a trilogy. I can't wait to see what happens to the characters next!"
"Aaron Galvin approached this retelling in an intelligent manner that in a way made total sense. He created this world filled with magic, murder, sacrifice, and more that will leave goosebumps across your skin. It's truly a must read!"
"This is a most intriguing and evocative story. The hazy division between the truly supernatural and just plain human evil and corruption is well employed to create a deep feeling of dread and foreboding...Well worth a read, especially if you like intelligent horror stories.
"...a fascinating, compelling all night (intense) dramatic read. I strongly recommend Salem's Vengeance to those who love a great witch story. You won't be disappointed."
"I actually felt as if I were there. Galvin did his research, that's for sure."
"The author has found a fresh take on this crazed moment in history, weaving science and fantasy into an exciting brew."
"...the revelations that are revealed via a journal were outstanding. I cannot wait to read the second book and I highly recommend that everyone reads it."
"I finished this book in 24 hours. I could not put it down. It gave me pause to think about the survivors of Salem and what sort of legacy may have been left."
"I love (Galvin's) imaginative new take on a possible explanation on the witches of Salem. Can't wait to read the other two books in the trilogy."
"...the description of the characters made me feel like I was right there with them worrying and hoping they would be okay. I have definitely told friends about this one. GREAT READ!!"
"(Galvin) took a way over used story line and made it new, exhilarating and fascinating. I read a lot so it takes a very good book for me to not be able to put it down, this book I finished in one day because of how enrapturing it was."
"Wow. Couldn't put it down. Wonderful story so well written you feel like you are there experiencing it yourself."
"Good, creepy, historical fiction. These witches are not for the faint of heart. Grab your copy and see if you'll be able to sleep at night."
