A Great and Terrible Beauty meets Cassandra Clare in this spellbinding fantasy

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.
Hardcover, 326 pages
Expected publication: February 7th 2012 by Putnam Juvenile
Born Wicked series The Cahill Witch Chronicles #1

I do love a good witch story! When it comes to wicca, witchcraft, magic I am very easy to please. I think it's got a fantastic cover and really looking forward to this one!


  1. "A Great and Terrible Beauty meets Cassandra Clare in this spellbinding fantasy" What? What does that mean? What does Cassandra have to do with this book? That is the strangest and most random line ever. It's like someone is following around Clare and narrating it as the book is handed to her lol.

    I really hope this book doesn't refer to the witchcraft as Wicca, cuz that truly peeves me. If it was actually Wicca, that would be fine. But most of the time, it's not. It's like on Buffy. They kept calling Willow a Wiccan, but nothing she did was ever Wiccan. Or on Charmed, same crap, called themselves Wiccan but never did anything remotely Wiccan related. Wicca is a religion and if they aren't going to portray that religion properly in their book, than don't use it. Make up a name for crying out loud. Sorry. That was a rant. It just spilled out :)
