Oct. 24, 2012 - PRLog -- The words ‘witch trials’ alone, immediately bring to mind to Salem, Massachusetts where the most infamous trails took place in 1692. It is loosely stated that nineteen persons were sentenced to death by hanging, eight more were condemned, and fifty declared to be witches, one hundred and fifty sent to Prison, and also two hundred more were accused of witchcraft.  In short, it was the most famous example of mass hysteria for its time and has since then become widely popular in literature. Stories, both old and new still arise from the actual events in both fiction and nonfiction literature.

In Hidden Salem, written by Kiki Howell,  a young woman, Makayla, is mysteriously drawn to Salem, Massachusetts. Once she arrives, she is immediately encumbered with a vision of the past. Although, not a ghost or apparition, the young woman that Makayla  encounters is actually due to her gift of empathy. Makayla unique ability allows her a glimpse into the past of actual events on the exact spot they occurred.

As the story unfolds, Makayla finds herself in the middle of residual hauntings and necromancy. She never expected to find herself running from a evil coven of witches, or protecting her heart from a local cop. The plot thickens, when she runs into the only one that can help her escape, a witch named Lauri. What Lauri helps Makayla realize is that she may have encountered  real witch from 1692 who fled Massachusetts during the mass hysteria of the Salem witch trials. Will intuition alone be enough to save Makayla? Or will she discover that she is tied to a long bloodline of real Salem witches? Read Hidden Salem to find out.

Readers will enjoy the mystery and suspense behind Hidden Salem, as well as enjoy some of the history pertaining to the actual witch trials of 1692. Howell, an author of romance novels, has created not only a mysterious setting, with startling facts, but blended it with a love triangle and suspense that her fans are accustomed too.

Romancing the Book states, "I really enjoyed reading Hidden Salem. You see a lot of books about the Salem Witch Hunt. This one is really different and I just really loved the characters and how they interact with each other. I enjoyed this paranormal. Had the right amount of suspense and love interest."

Hidden Salem by Kiki Howell is available just in time for Halloween reading, in both paperback and eBook formats, where books are sold. Check with local bookstores for availability.
