This book was okay. The reader is immediately pushed into this coven's world, and at first everything was really confusing. I didn't know what was going on and there should have been more explanation about the coven and witches. As you read, you find out more, but a little background info at the beginning would have been nice. I liked all the characters, and they all had distinctive personalities which was fun to read. I also liked the suspense; the whole time you were wondering what the big secret is. Amanda Marrone does a nice job of slowly doling out new information, so you keep learning but at the same time are left in the dark. The ending, though, I didn't really like. It was a little corny and was too easily resolved. I think this book would be good for anyone that likes reading fantasy about witches.
6 out of 10.
