Put down your copy of The Crucible and forget everything you thought you knew
about the Salem Witch Trials. Aaron Galvin wants to take you down a path that
wanders far from the one trod by the noble John Proctor. If you like your history lessons with a side of bloodshed and just a dash of hallucinogens I say high thee hence to a seller of books post haste!

Second books are delicate things. At their worst they’re placeholders for the
grand finale or they’re merely bigger, louder, flashier version

In Salem's Fury we are transported 15 years after the event's of Salem's Vengeance. Here we find Sarah married to Priest and Rebecca as a young adult. They have been living with the Miamiak tribe. Things may finally seem like they have fallen into place, at least for Rebecca and Priest. As for Sarah, she seems to be miserable and it's not only due to the fact that now she is

So many changes: set 15 years in the future, Rebecca as the narrator, Sarah as a completely different and weak person, and so many deaths.

This second book of the Vengeance Trilogy is definitely as good (maybe better) than the first. Sarah, who is the main protagonist in the first book, is now haunted by her father's deeds and the witches curse and doesn't fare well in this book. However, her younger sister, Rebecca, who is now a grown woman, has joined the Indian tribe of her adopted father, Priest, and becomes the family's protector and savior. Now a warrior, Rebecca does not share her older sister's guilt in deeds past, but embr ...more

Wonderful storytelling

The 2nd book is just as good, if not better, than the first! Story is fast paced, clearly defined, full of well fleshed out characters and a wonderful story. I can hardly wait to start the 3rd....

I enjoyed this book even more than the first. The Native American aspect and the continued history made for a great read!

[ Beware Of Spoilers in this review ]
Where the last book in this series only received four stars from me, this one gets five! The only fault I could find in the book is how weak Sarah was made out to be. It was so strange after having such a strong, brave and courageous protagonist in Salem's Vengeance to see her as a weak and quivering wreck. But that is the only problem I had with this book.

I absolutely loved the change of protagonist to Sarah's younger sister Rebbecca. It kept the story fresh

The tale that started with Salem’s Vengeance is continued in book two, Salem’s Fury. The first book was terrifying imagination of the fallout from the Salem witch trials. If you haven’t read the first book, you need to. There’s very little back story given in book 2, and without it, you’ll miss out on events critical to the plot.

Salem’s Fury picks up fifteen years later. The remaining members of the Kelly family live on the fringe of civilization. George and his wife run a fur-trading outpost an

Received in exchange for a honest review.

Aaron galvin has done it again. First and foremost this is not a standalone. The history of the characters is not known and is alluded to so Salem’s vengeance is needed to understand this book. The prose is excellent and this takes a new path in the story. The first book was about the vengeance of the witches against Sarah and her family. Here her family or what is left has gone two ways. Her brother and wife run a fur trade where bishop and andrew is. An

Here comes the review of the second part of Vengeance trilogy. If you haven’t read the first book… What were you thinking? Haven’t I wrote it was worth it? Come on now!

But let’s ne serious (for a little while). This time story moves few years forward. Instead of Sarah, we’ll be following her little sister – Rebecca. You though Salem’s witches given up on the chase after the Kelly family? Well, you’re wrong.

Sarah Kelly is back in this book and she has been living in the wilderness with the Miamiak. But she still fears her father's sins and that those sins will eventually be revisited upon his children, meaning her and her little sister, Rebecca and brother. However, Rebecca thinks differently; she has been adopted by the Miamiak and raised in the wilderness so she shares no concerns to her previous father's sins.

(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).

(This review may contain spoilers).

Having read the previous book in this series, I was somewhat thrown when I started this one, since I didn't recognise the narrator in this book... which turned out to be the fact that it was a different narrator, which made more sense.

It was interesting to view Rebecca's memories (or lack thereof) of the events of the previous book and how her views of the other characters had changed. I like the mo

There was a lot I enjoyed with the first book in the Vengeance Trilogy, but that feels overcast by how much I loved this wonderful follow up. Aaron Galvin takes us back into the world of the Salem Witch Trials, but this time, we see through the eyes of the Miamiak.

Rebecca is a formidable spirit, with a wild nature that is easy to embrace and adore. While Sarah could sometimes be passive, Rebecca is anything but. I love when books have a strong female lead, but especially one that feels believab

** I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review**

This book's POV is Rebecca Kelly, whereas in Salem's Vengeance it's POV is Sarah Kelly; Rebecca's eldest sibling and only sister. So overall I got a different feel for the book than I did in the first. The story also took place 15 years after the events in Salem's Vengeance. I still loved all the characters, but I also felt that this story had a lot more action and sorrow in it then the first.

Now for the storyline. I be
Sarah & Rebecca Kelly survived Hecate and her coven of witches. Adopted by the Miamiak and raised in the wilderness, Rebecca has become a fierce warrior ready for battle. For her, memories of her old life and of Hecate’s attack are dim. But their past comes back to haunt them. When a war party arrives with news of a neighbouring tribe attacked for harbouring white folk, they demand the Miamiak to aid them in avenging their fallen brothers.

Fifteen years have passed since the night that changed the life of the Kelly children. For fifteen years they lived in peace, away from Salem - at least physically, as that night scared them for life. But their freedom was once again disturbed by Salem's Vengeance...

Aaron Galvin did it again! He created once again a dark world full of mysteries and twists with attention to the detail. The historical research is clearly present as it was in Salem's Vengeance, but this time it is given an insi

I enjoyed this sequel only slightly less than the original book. I was a little sad when I realsied this wasn't a sequel with Sarah as our main character becasue I really enjoyed her as a protagonist. Hvaing said that, I was quickly conveninced of Rebecca as a narrator, I also really enjoyed reading from her prospective.

I really enjoyed that Galvin didn't show Sarah living a happy little existence amongst the Miamik, he showed how difficult things had been (and were) for her and while

This book is more of a 3.5 ish review. I had such a hard time trying to come up with a star rating for this book. I really loved the writing, as I had with the first book in the trilogy, but I wasn't a huge fan of some of the changes in this book. I didn't really know where Aaron would go with the story line in this book, but this was definitely not what I was expecting.
This book is told 15 years after Vengeance's story line and also told from Rebecca's pov. I thought that this gap of time was j

Sarah and her siblings are now grown up and trying to put their horrible pasts behind them. They have been accepted into a local tribe as family and are all doing well until the past catches up with them. Can they survive tge witches fury this time or will they lose everything and everyone they love.
Even though it has a few references to the past you do not have to read book one to read this one. I really enjoyed the book and found it very hard to put it down.

An excellent follow-up to Salem's Vengeance. Salem's Fury didn't disappoint. Galvin does a wonderful job portraying the character's feelings and emotion. Also, the dialogue and setting stay true to the time period. Salem's Fury can be interpreted as a girl fighting to find her true identity, buried both in the pain of her past and future. Once again Galvin has presented us with a brilliant story that sucks you in. ...more

The witches are back, and they aren't the only ones seeking vengeance. In this second book of the Vengeance Trilogy, readers be warned: don't get attached to anyone, evil or good, because the body count is high! Full review on my blog
