Modern-day witch Freya Beauchamp is cast back in time to 1692 amongst the Salem Witch Trials by an enemy spell, as her present-day family attempts to reopen the passages of time to bring her home. Freya Beauchamp is trapped in 1692, in Salem of all places, with no recollection of her past. A powerful enemy spell has sent her spiraling away so that she is separated by centuries from her mother, Joanna, and sister, Ingrid. This is not good news for a twenty-first-century witch. Not to mention the immediate threat she faces from the wealthy and influential Putnam family. When little Annie Putnam is one of the first to make accusations of witchcraft, her landowner father jumps at the opportunity to consolidate his power and expand his holdings in Puritan Salem Town. If Freya is caught using magic, she will be forced to relive the witch trials, and this time, even her immortality is in question. Meanwhile, twenty-first-century North Hampton has its own snares. Joanna and Norm consult the Oracle for advice, and Freddie and his pixie allies search for a missing totem that could reopen the passages of time and help bring his sister home. When Ingrid bumps into an old flame, she finds that her new love for Detective Matt Noble is in doubt. Moving between past and present, the plot is filled with twists and suspense.

Winds of Salem is the third book in Melissa De La Cruz’s Witches of East End series and a fantastic end to the series. Freya Beauchamp is sent back in time to 1692 Salem (yes, another Salem book!) with no idea of who she is. Her mother, Joanna, and sister, Ingrid are stuck in the 21st century, trying to figure out how to rescue her. I’ve always loved the way the author took witches and Norse mythology, and brought them together.

In the book, the reader gets a first-hand look at a Salem witch trial along with other historical details like marriage and inheritance. I’ve found all of De La Cruz’s books to be fast reads and the Witches of East End series seems tailored for an adult or new adult audience. While delving into witches and myth, these books have a magical realism feel to it rather than urban fantasy. I recommend Witches of East End for a first time reader of De La Cruz’s works.

Very enjoyable ending to what seems to be the last of the Witches of East End series, although I would have liked more insight into Abby/Abigail's motivation for her actions, what exactly sparked her interest and started events in motion.
