My Thoughts on Born Wicked:
I was excited to read about this release and a twist on the witch. While the world is putting witched aside and moving onto new dangerous grounds the Cahill sisters try to hide their magic and find their inner powers as their family's past can create a great shadow of disaster for their future.
This debut release from Jessica Spotswood is just stunning. Through these sister we learn of a past and a future both at the edge of destruction while at the same time their family is falling apart and love is finding its way into a witch's heart.
Born Wicked has a great cast of characters that are in a richly described world that will catch and captivate readers in its spell. I know I was ensnared and could not put it down.
Everybody knows Cate Cahill and her sisters are eccentric. Too pretty, too reclusive, and far too educated for their own good. But the truth is even worse: they're witches. And if their secret is discovered by the priests of the Brotherhood, it would mean an asylum, a prison ship—or an early grave.
Before her mother died, Cate promised to protect her sisters. But with only six months left to choose between marriage and the Sisterhood, she might not be able to keep her word . . . especially after she finds her mother's diary, uncovering a secret that could spell her family's destruction. Desperate to find alternatives to their fate, Cate starts scouring banned books and questioning rebellious new friends, all while juggling tea parties, shocking marriage proposals, and a forbidden romance with the completely unsuitable Finn Belastra.
If what her mother wrote is true, the Cahill girls aren't safe. Not from the Brotherhood, the Sisterhood—not even from each other
