This can be a touchy subject for me. I’ve read much about the various “witch” persecutions. I think this author did a good job keeping the dramatic effect to a minimum. I can understand the mixed reviews. I could go on and on as to my opinion why, but I won’t preach.
Parts of the story kind of made me think of Anne Rice’s Taltos.
Looking forward to the next book in the series. ( )

Parts of this book were really good and other sections not so much. Bess Hawksmith lives in 17th century England when the plague comes to the village. She's saved by her mother, but there's a price to pay.
The book alternates between present time Elizabeth and other periods of her long life. I liked her early life very much; it's a long section and well-written, almost historical fiction. Latter parts of her life are less successful. I thought the Jack the Ripper part too obvious as well as it seemed to be copying The Knick. The WWI section was good but too short, so underdeveloped.
So I dithered between 4 stars and two and finally settled on three. It's an okay read but I'm not enthused enough to look for the next book in the series. ( )

Didn't like the writing style. Dialogues and characters seemed too artificial.

With the exception of her mother and herself, all of Bess Hawksmith's die of the plague.... The other families are jealous & claim Bess's mother to be a witch for which she is hanged.

Bess reluctantly runs to Gideon for protection...

In her most current reincarnation, Bess unwillingly takes on a young woman as apprentice of sorts. Tegan seem to be a typical teenager, wanting all the power & glory but none of the work and she is distracted by a male.

Throughout the centuries Bess lives her many lives, until the time comes that she must face-off Gideon for once and for all.

The book went through so many lives & times, that I could not keep up, nor could I hold my interest... The print was small and was difficult to focus on. I was rather bored and did not particularly like the characters other than Bess & her mother....

There is a sequel, but I'll pass. ( )

I enjoyed the story with its time travel between historical events. Fun read. ( )
