Surely by now our avid readers are given the impression that I'm certainly not a fan of 'Twilight,' the movies at least. I just feel that the characters were ruined on screen and far too cheesy for my taste (basically bad acting at best). Regardless, it didn't kill my appetite for fantasy novels. Indeed I still enjoy a good dish that satisfies my taste in the supernatural, and authors like Becca Fitzpatrick (Hush, Hush series) and Richelle Mead (Vampire Academy & Bloodlines series) both in my opinion, delivers when it comes to writing good books that keep me entertained and hooked. So, while they're working on their next best sellers, I started researching for the next novel to save me from boredom or when I'm completely blank when it comes to posting.
Fortunately, Jessica Spotswood will be unleashing her novel ‘Born Wicked‘ in February (Already out in Australia), the first in her Cahill Witch Chronicles. And if the book is anything like its trailer then my interest is definitely piqued. Jessica is somewhat of a newbie in the land of fiction so if you’re wondering how come the name doesn’t really ring a bell then I suggest reading her bio on her official website. Check out the ‘Born Wicked‘ trailer below and read on for a little more about the book:
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.
Read the first two chapters here I enjoyed it so far.
