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.
I have had this book on my shelves probably since 2009, I finally decided it was time to read it and I’m not sure how I feel about it.
I really liked the first book, Witch. I was having a lot of fun reading it and I was enjoying it more than I expected to. It’s not the best story, but sometimes you just need some older YA paranormal in your life. Especially since that is pretty much where I started when I first got into reading.
The second book, Curse, unfortunately wasn’t as good. I was very disappointed and even got angry at one point. If you are like me and you love animals, either stay away from this series or just be prepared. Both Witch & Curse have animal sacrifices, but the second book is a bit worse. It made me so angry I almost didn’t finish the book. However, I was so close to the end, and I still have the rest of the series on my shelf, so I picked it back up and finished it.
Since I did I enjoy the first part, I will be continuing on with the series. Hopefully it gets better. Although I am really disliking Holly, so I don’t know how well this is going to go.
