Review: Born Wicked By: Jessica Spotswood

Born Wicked (The Cahill Witch Chronicles, #1)Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Welcome Ms. Spotswood! What a wonderful tale of the Cahill sisters filled with danger, intrigue, and romance.

Cate Cahill lives in the New World, filled with the Brotherhood - whom teach the wickedness of women and their need not to be anything other than their husband's chattel, the Sisterhood - a branch for all intents and purposes the woman's flip of a coin of the Brotherhood (but look deeper, they are much, much more and have an agenda), witchcraft (her and her sisters may be part of a prophesy, they are not the only ones with this gift). Cate is the oldest and despite having her father, she is raising herself and her sisters, Maura and Tess. The only messages she has from her mother are cryptic in a diary and her godmother, who is in an asylum because of witchcraft. The promise and message requires Cate to protect and watch over them, which will require sacrifice. Is Cate able to sacrifice the new love that she has found, her independence and hope of living a life she imagines or is the prophesy already set in motion?

I throughly enjoyed this book. And was disappointed that I could not finish the Cahill story, it is part of a series. The imagery and the characters jump out, leaving the reader devouring every page. I can't wait for the next in this series.
