Overview

Mi chiamo Cate Cahill, ho sedici anni e sono una strega. Avete capito bene, una strega. E, se la Confraternita scoprisse il mio segreto, rischierei la prigione - o il rogo. Non è facile vivere nell'ombra, ma ho imparato a cavarmela. Molto meglio di Maura e Tess, le mie sorelle minori. Per questo, prima che la mamma morisse, ho promesso di proteggerle, a qualunque costo. Sono pronta a tutto pur di mantenere la parola data, anche a sacrificare il mio futuro e sposare un uomo che non amo. Voglio solo che le mie sorelle crescano tranquille, al riparo da sguardi indiscreti. Qualche giorno fa, però, ho trovato il diario della mamma. Non avrei dovuto leggerlo, lo so, ma non ho saputo resistere alla tentazione di curiosare nel suo passato. Mi sono nascosta in camera mia e ho iniziato a sfogliare le pagine fitte di appunti, ricordi, confidenze. Ho scoperto così che un'antica profezia incombe sulla nostra famiglia. Una profezia che potrebbe cambiare il corso della Storia, e della nostra vita. Inizio a temere per me, e per le mie sorelle, e non so a chi chiedere aiuto. Solo Finn, il figlio della libraia del paese, sembra capirmi. Lui sa tutto di magia e di stregoneria. E poi sa tutto di me. Finn mi ha presa per mano e mi ha trascinata in un mondo affascinante e pericoloso, un mondo che mia madre mi ha tenuto nascosto per troppo tempo. Credo di essermi innamorata di Finn nell'esatto istante in cui ho iniziato a leggere i libri proibiti e ho compreso il vero significato della profezia. Il nostro destino è già stato scritto e non è in mio potere cambiarlo. Io, Maura e Tess non possiamo più fidarci di nessuno. Nemmeno l'una dell'altra.

    Sweet and entertaining

    A good witchy book, different from others I've read. I found it a bit confusing to figure out the location and history at first, but that sorted itself out eventually and I enjoyed it. Good character development. Looking forward to next book.

    So I read this a few weeks ago and though it started out slow, the mystery and intrigue of the Cahill Sister's abilities and secrets really kept me on edge. In a society where just being a woman is grounds for suspicion of being a witch, its really fun to see how they try to hide their abilities and prevent themselves from being discovered by the demanding Brotherhood. With just a dash of romance and a pinch of danger, this story really kept me on edge and I am eager for the next book in the Cahjill adventures.
