 From the Salem Witch trials through the Nineteenth Century and beyond, the devil’s disciple pursues young and innocent Annabel Horton.  During the Incident at Loudun in 1633 Urban Grandier’s soul was taken by the devil in a furious confrontation between good and evil.  The once pious priest becomes the demonic priest. His curse is on Annabel for forsaking him to Lucifer and he pursues her through time as she taunts his beliefs and he reviles hers. As Annabel flees the devil’s fire 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 Boussidan, 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?

The first novel I ever wrote, Dancing Backward In Paradise, won an Eric Hoffer Award for publishing excellence and an Indie Excellence Award for notable new fiction, 2007. The Story of Sassy Sweetwater and Dancing Backward in Paradise received a 5 Star ForeWord Clarion Review and The Story of Sassy Sweetwater has been named a finalist for the ForeWord Book of the Year Awards. I have published in ESL Magazine, Christopher Street Magazine and I have also written early childhood curriculum for Weekly Reader and McGraw Hill.
The pen name for my fantasy and paranormal novels is Olivia Hardy Ray. There are two other books in the Annabel series, Annabel Horton and the Black Witch of Pau and Annabel Horton and the Demon of Loudun. Black Witch is book 2 in the series and should be published this year. Also penned by Olivia is my novel Pharaoh’s Star and my soon to be released, Pindar Corners.

Aside from Southern fiction and fantasy/paranormal fiction I write women’s fiction with two titles to be published in 2019 and my presently published Lies a River Deep.

As for pleasure I love wine, chocolate, dogs, cats and other creatures of the jungle. I also love to travel, read, write, watch films and go to theater. I value friendship, history, my enormously loving family and quiet times under a summer sun.

Don't let the name fool you! This is Vera Jane Cook all the way. I am not new to Vera Jane Cook. I have read several of her books and loved every one! AND... this is my second time reading this one! I just didn't get a change to review it the first time around.

I love to read anything about the Salem Witch Trials. This is no ordinary Witch trial story!  Oh there are enough historical facts about that time to keep fans happy, but then she goes all Vera Jane Cook on you! And by that I mean - She puts such a spin on it and it goes all spider webby, you don't know what is coming next. She does fantastic research so her stories feel like you are right there in that spot in that time.. Yet, with her own paranormal twists and originality you couldn't possibly be there! 

I know every time I read one of her books I say this, but this might be my favorite one by her!
If you love historical fiction, if you are a fan of the Salem Witch Trials, or if you just love anything dark, scary, and paranormal - you will love this one!

I voluntarily posted this review after receiving a copy of this book from RABT Book Tours Thank You!!
