Summery: Holly Cathers’s world shatters when her parents are killed in a terrible accident. Wrenched from her home in San Francisco, she is sent to Seattle to live with her relatives, Aunt Marie-Claire and her twin cousins, Amanda and Nicole.
In her new home, Holly’s sorrow and grief soon give way to bewilderment at the strange incidents going on around her. Such as how any wish she whispers to her cat seems to come true. Or the way a friend is injured after a freak attack from a vicious falcon. And there’s the undeniable, magnetic attraction to a boy Holly barely knows.
Holly, Amanda, and Nicole are about to be launced into a dark legacy of witches, secrets, and alliances, where ancient magics yield dangerous results. The girls will assume their roles in an intergenerational feud beyond their wildest imaginations…and in doing so, will attempt to fulfill their shared destiny.
*My copy of the book is two books in one.
I was a little iffy to read this book because of Crusade. Not that the book was bad and all, i just couldn’t get into it. I heard a few mix reviews about Wicked, but as some of you know i been in a witch hype lately. I wanted to risk it and read this book to see if i will like it. Since the book is actually two books in one i am gonna try to separate the review without making this post to long.
My thoughts on Witch: Holly’s parents die and she is sent to live with her aunt and cousins she has never heard of before. Strange things start happening to holly and her cousins. They find out they are witches. the book was pretty true to the whole witch concept but with out the pointy hats and nose. The book kind of has this romeo and Juliet thing going on. The whole book seem very rushed. Some parts i didn’t understand…actually i didn’t really get this whole book, it jumped a lot, But the book wasn’t all bad i did like some of it. I didn’t really like the whole romance or whatever you want to call it. I thought it was a little odd. I really wanted to know more about Jer, but only got a little peek.
My thoughts on Cruse: I was really highly disappointed in this one, the first one was way better then cruse. The second was so jumbled i can’t get what in the world was going on. The Whole jumping from past to future was just to hard to keep up. I still didn’t get to read about Jer at all and had no freaking clue what was going on with Nicole i did like the whole concept and thought it was funny that the witches weakness was water…i couldn’t take this book seriously at all there was parts i laughed at that i wasn’t supposed to laugh at cause it was just awkward. I just couldn’t get in to it like i wanted to.
My Overall Thoughts: The first book wasn’t bad. second book was a fail. Do without the flash back and more detail and this book would have been amazing. Do i recommend the book? Yes sure, but not everyone is gonna like it. Some people might find it cheesy but some might like the simple writing. The book is really easy to read. i give the book and overall 2.5 stars in my opinion. Others might give it more stars.
