From Lilac Wolf and Stuff

This book gave me chills. Following Annabel as she went from body to body, visited time periods past and future, and fought for lover and family over and over. This book is chocked full of action, magic and philosophy.

All through the book, though Annabel knows she is a witch, she also knows she is a Christian and that God has blessed her. She also spends a lot of time battling a demon who doesn't even have a bone to pick with her, it's a great aunt or something.

The story weaving in this book astonished me. I was really expecting the book to be very different than it was. I guess I had preconceived notions because I read so many para type books. This book, however, is unlike anything I have ever read. It was a cross between a family saga, historical fiction, horror and paranormal. That does not even do it justice, but it had elements from them all.

I loved how the author had "time travel" but did not allow themselves to get sucked into the normal time tr

Where do I start?

This novel is amazing: beautifully written, gripping, and un-putdownable (I nearly overran my journey to work via London Underground several times).

Vera Jane Cook has created a timeless character in Annabel Horton – literally. Destined for her soul to pass through time dimensions and to constantly face her demons, Annabel must save her extended family from the Devil’s clutches. When I say extended, I mean close relatives, extended by several hundred years!

Running at about 137,0

My Review:
It took me a few chapters to get into this book, but once i had got over that i really enjoyed the story. The characters were well written and the story line itself was far different to what i expected. The time travel and family connections are amazingly in depth and the fight from the devils clutches is well worked and well written. This is not a YA read but it is full of action and with great interaction between the characters. I really like Annabel as a character she try's to keep

I received this book free from First Reads in exchange for a honest review.

The book is not what I thought it would be. When I got it, I was pleased to see it wasn't the typical "Salem Witch" book. However, I STRUGGLED to read this book. I about quit several times, but kept on reading. I finally stopped about chapter 36. I can't do it anymore, and I rarely set aside a book.

This book had great possibilities...but never lived up to any of them. The whole time travel thing got to be old, fast. The b

Unlike anything else I have ever read, this story is a mix of historical fiction, time travel and body hopping, prejudice (against both color and sexual preferences,) culture and beliefs in various eras, and is a complicated family saga. For geneologists this is both a dream and a nightmare. Don't go looking for family loyalty.

As with many tales of the Salem Witch times, it is good vs evil and questioning the existance of God and or Devil.
The book is full of beautifully descriptive passages. Dur

3 and 3/4 stars for me.

Annabel Horton is cursed. This story, written in the style of classical literature, describes Annabel's journey through the dimensions of time trying to reunite with her loved ones and fight the evil force that is torturing them all.

The book has an adult content warning up front which is quite warranted. This was a very different type of book for me - much darker than I usually read. Although dark, it is not overly graphic which I appreciate.

This story about the lost witch is very interesting. We follow Annabel on a journey through time. She is pursued by the evil. I think that keeping track of her family tree in this book is a bit complex but I like this story. It is worth reading for anyone that likes reading about Salem and/or witches. *This was book was given to by the author in exchange for an honest review*

Liked it, but not as much as I thought I would. Took me a couple days to read it, but I followed it pretty well. A few of my friends were asking me how it was, so Im going to let them check it out themselves.

So many different story elements all twisted together, wrung until it screams, and the result being an intriguing read that keeps you entertained.

A free copy received from the author but I would have paid for this book !!
