Genre:YA Fantasy| Romance|Adventure
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.
No. No, why Maura? I had tried so hard to not dislike her, I tried to give her a chance like Cate, Tess been doing. After a cliffhanger like that, it’s hard for me to dislike her. Now I can’t stand her. How could anyone do that to their own flesh and blood? To me it seems like she cared more about feeling accepting, fitting in than considering her own sister’s feelings. Cate has been there for her and she forgave her for some of things that she either said or did. I do not see her being able to forgive her for this. I know that I wouldn’t be able to. The ending had my emotions all over the place; I even re-read it once just to make sure that I read it right. I felt sad for Cate, I wanted to go over and give her a hug. I was angry at Maura, I never been so angry with fictional character that I been with her. I could tell that there was something off with Maura, just how she was acting but even I didn’t expect this of her. She got out of control. If she was capable of this, who knows what else she would be capable of. After that ending, I’m anxious to see what’s going to happen, how this will affect all of the sisters.
How could you not love Tess? Besides Cate, she was my other favorite character. I love the bond that her and Cate seem to have, it’s a special connection. To me it feels like they are more of friends than sisters. They trust each other, and no matter what happens, they are there for one another. I think that it’s possible that Maura might be jealous of their bond. But lately she seems like she wants to be in control of everything. I’m glad that Cate at least still has Tess. After way that Maura betrayed Cate, her trust and broke her heart, she will need her sister. Somehow Tess always seems to find a way to make her feel better. I hope nobody else finds out she is Oracle because I have a feeling that it wouldn’t end well if they did. She’s just a child. But considering how much she has to deal with lately, she has a bit heart and a lot of courage.
Of course I adored the scenes between Finn & Cate, how could I not? At beginning I was afraid that Finn wouldn’t forgive her, that she wouldn’t be able to explain why she joined the Sisterhood. The way he looked at her, it didn’t look like love to me. I couldn’t blame her, he joined brotherhood for her and then she did opposite of what she said she would. When they got to meet and Cate explained to him what happened, when they kissed. I was beaming. I was that happy that they reunited, the two of them are the couple that I know belong together. What the two of them have is true love. Finn risked so much to be near her, to help her. Maura couldn’t stand the thought of her sister happy, so she had to go and ruin everything. I am curious to see if he will actually remember? Or will he be confused about everything, including why he joined Brotherhood to begin with. I’m hoping that somehow he regain his memories with Cate.
Star Cursed was more action based, with more suspense than Born Wicked seemed to be. I did not want to put it down and once I finished it, I picked up the next one right away. I needed to see how adventures for cate, for the sisterhood would end. If she would reunite with Finn. It’s a book that you can’t but wonder how it will all come to end. One of the best series about witches, witchcraft. A series that I do not want to come to end.
