Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week’s Waiting on Wednesday post is for Star Cursed (Cahill Witch Chronicles #2) by Jessica Spotswood (Putnam Juvenile):
NOTE: Summary contains spoilers for the first book, Born Wicked.
With the Brotherhood persecuting witches like never before, a divided Sisterhood desperately needs Cate to come into her Prophesied powers. And after Cate’s friend Sachi is arrested for using magic, a war-thirsty Sister offers to help her find answers—if Cate is willing to endanger everyone she loves.
Cate doesn’t want to be a weapon, and she doesn’t want to involve her friends and Finn in the Sisterhood’s schemes. But when Maura and Tess join the Sisterhood, Maura makes it clear that she’ll do whatever it takes to lead the witches to victory. Even if it means sacrifices. Even if it means overthrowing Cate. Even if it means all-out war.
In the highly anticipated sequel to Born Wicked, the Cahill Witch Chronicles continue Cate, Maura and Tess’s quest to find love, protect family, and explore their magic against all odds in an alternate history of New England.
Why I’m looking forward to this book:
I enjoyed the first book in this series, Born Wicked, and am definitely curious about what’s going to happen next. I also vaguely remember hearing that there would be more Tess in this book, and I really want more Tess; she was my favorite! It seems like things are really gearing up in this installment; Maura is still angry, Cate is still trying to do what’s best for everyone, and the tension seems to be really mounting. I want to know how on earth the prophecy is going to come together, and I really really hope to see more witchery!
Release Date: June 18, 2013
