My Review

What a great little story especially with the twists surrounding the Salem Witch trials. Loved that part. And the reincarnation of the original witches who have continued to live on through time. Yeah, see it's a really cool story. It starts out with three sisters. Trin and Kit are presently the two sisters in the here and now, and they are always looking for their third sister, and they always die before they can find her. But this time something is different. When Trin originally died in the Salem witch trials, she cast a spell that would keep her and her sisters together, she died and let them all be reincarnated to find each other. But they could never find that last sister. But now, they are finding more than they ever thought. Trin is being blocked, and worse, things are attacking her, and now she's made friends who live her wiccan life style and she knows she needs to stop it this time or there's no coming back, ever. 

Let me start this by saying, this is a girl power book. Yes, we love the hero, but this one is all about the sisters and having girl power. You don't need a man to save you. but it's nice to have one stand by your side to kiss you when it's done :) See, another awesome part of this book. Now, Trin is a very strong woman, but sometimes, her secrets should have been a cry to ask for help. But persecution in the past kept her from doing just that. It kept the suspense of this book up. The sisters fascinated me. My favorite character of the story is Caris, which is Jason's sister. I think I need a BFF like her. :) And I must say, the best written character of them all if the evil mastermind. I am sorry to say, but I was completely enamored with the crazy ways of the evil. It was just written so good. I know. I'm normally all about the main character. And I am, but it was just about the charismatic ways or something. 

I liked the writing style a lot and there are a lot of historical parts that were done really well. I'm quite certain some good old fashioned research was done thoroughly with this one. I really liked the plot and how the twist at the end kinda blew my mind. I knew about one sister, but not THAT ONE. LOL And then, and then... Yeah. It's a very cool book to read. That's what I shall say. If you like witches, especially the history based, wiccan life styled, beautifully done, well then I think this one is for you. It was well done for me :) 5 PAWS!
