So. Let's talk witches. Fantasy. Hot boys who are actually (gasp) also good boys. Beautiful dresses. Oracles. Sisters. Magic. Plot twists. Heartbreak.


All words to describe STAR CURSED, the second book in Jessica Spotswood's CAHILL WITCH CHRONICLES trilogy. (The first book, by the way, is BORN WICKED. It's captivating. You should read it. It has all of the above too.) I had the extreme fortune of reading STAR CURSED early, and let me tell you, it's possibly even better than the first. Not only are we treated to a thickening plot and a world that turns steadily darker--but we're treated to some serious character development. Cate, Maura, and Tess are a breathtaking trio of sisters. And, just sayin....be prepared for some heartbreak. Agh!


Okay. Without further ado, here's what STAR CURSED is about:


With the Brotherhood persecuting witches like never before, a divided Sisterhood desperately needs Cate to come into her Prophesied powers. And after Cate's friend Sachi is arrested for using magic, a war-thirsty Sister offers to help her find answers--if Cate is willing to endanger everyone she loves.


Cate doesn't want to be a weapon, and she doesn't want to involve her friends and Finn in the Sisterhood's schemes. But when Maura and Tess join the Sisterhood, Maura makes it clear that she'll do whatever it takes to lead the witches to victory. Even if it means sacrifices. Even if it means overthrowing Cate. Even if it means all-out war.

In the highly anticipated sequel to BORN WICKED, the Cahill Witch Chronicles continue Cate, Maura and Tess's quest to find love, protect family, and explore their magic against all odds in an alternate history of New England.

I really enjoyed Star Cursed! Didn't see that twist coming just like I didn't see the twist in Prodigy coming! I swear you Breathless Sisters planed this! ;)

It's YA - the same sort of age range that Legend is aimed at :)

Born Wicked is a really good book - if you've read the Gemma Doyle series it's got a similar sort of mood to that.

From the sound of the plot, I'd say it's probably aimed at teenagers (since 99.9% of all books aimed at teenagers [particularly teenage girls] follow pretty much the same plot as this or something fairly similar), though I wouldn't let that stop you if it sounds like your cup of tea.
