Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood

Born Wicked (The Cahill Witch Chronicles, #1)Born Wicked (The Cahill Witch Chronicles #1) by Jessica Spotswood
Release Date: February 7, 2012
Publisher: Putnam Juvenile
Souce: LibraryThing Early reviewers!
Age Rec: I would recommend this book for ages 12 and over.
Reader Rec: Recommended for fans of Michelle Zink's Prophecy of the Sisters series.
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.

Review:  Read this book. Read it right now, read it in ten years, read it tomorrow, I don't care when, just read it! 

The message above is for people who I know won't read the entire review, its alright,  just read the sentence above!

For those of you who like to read the whole review (thank-you),  prepare yourself for some major gushing. I started Born Wicked with no major expectations, I really love it when  fantasy and historical fiction mix, so I was intrigued.

From the beginning, it was all secrets and magic. I was flipping the pages madly, trying to find out what happened next. This book was action, mystery, fantasy and forbidden romance. It was just that good.

Cate Cahill was such an amazing and strong character, she has two sisters to look over after her mother's death. She puts them first, she would give anything for them. She is really an awesome character, Jessica Spotswood does such a good job at writing up lovable characters that you just cannot help yourself and fall in love with Cate and wish she was your best friend.

Finn, he is more than just the love interest and dream boy, he is brave and humble. I just love everything about this boy. I need more of him on the next book, please!

The plot of this story was amazing, the twist and turns were just making this but IMPOSSIBLE to put down, just when you think things cannot get any worse, they do, and the ending just about broke my heart

I started the year off really good,  I am glad I chose this book to be my first read of the year, because this book will probably in my top books of 2012. That is just how good Born Wicked was.

Also, I will be posting the book trailer too, because I just LOVE it so much! Great book trailer for a great book!

    2. I got to read it and yeah, you were right it is really good :D
      I loved that feathery kiss scene ;)) but I worry about what her action back then will mean in the next book (playing with someone's head is not good).

      Anyways, I can't wait to see what happens next!
