The Daughters of Salem is a first part in a retelling of the events that let up to the witch trials in Salem and focuses on the misogynistic atmosphere that was around in the puritan times. While this initially sounded like an interesting take on a well known story, it fell a bit flat for me.
The struggles of the women come across, but all of them seem overly done and I didn’t care for any of the characters really. There was a part one easily might consider racist. The art was very modest, which fit the puritan themes but was not really my cup of tea either. I don’t think I will be continuing this series, especially since I already know where it is heading.
Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
