The Initiation-Book 1 of The Secret Circle by LJ Smith

February 23rd, 2009 by Debbie's World of Books


I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars.

Description from Amazon:  The circle’s power has lured her home

Forced to move from sunny California to gloomy New England, Cassie longs for her old life. Even so, she feels a strange kinship to a terrifying group of teens who seem to rule her school. Initiated into the coven of witches that’s controlled New Salem for hundreds of years, she’s drawn into the Secret Circle, a thrill that’s both intoxicating and deadly. But when she falls for the mysterious and intriguing Adam, Cassie must choose whether to resist temptation or risk dark forces to get what she wants—even if it means that one wrong move could ultimately destroy her.

This was a re-read for me.  I first read the book back in middle school not long after reading The Vampire Diaries series which I loved.  I’m glad to see that this one still held my attention after the disappointment in re-reading the first book of the Vampire Diaries.  I loved the rivalry between Faye and Diana and watching the chemistry between Cassie and Adam and the hint of chemistry between Cassie and Nick.  It also foreshadows of troubles to come with the non-witch inhabitants of their island town.  I can’t wait to read what happens as Cassie is blackmailed into helping Faye betray Diana.
