The Captive: Book 2 of The Secret Circle by LJ Smith

March 1st, 2009 by Debbie's World of Books


This was another re-read for me although the last time I read this was back in middle or high school.  I give this one a 4 out of 5 stars.

Description: Can The Secret Circle Survive…

Lured into the most popular in-crowd imaginable, Cassie is intoxicated by her newfound strength, a power as addictive as it is perilous.

Caught between two members’ consuming desires to use the coven’s mysterious force, Cassie turns to one of their boyfriends, Adam–and falls captive to her own dangerous love.

Bewitched by the promise of love through magic, Cassie captures Adam’s heart and upsets the delicate balance of power, unleashing a storm of fury no one anticipates.

…Or Will The Dark Struggle Of Good, Evil, And Tormented Love Consume Them All?

This is book 2 in The Secret Circle series.  See my review of book 1 here.  This book was just as good as the first in the series.  The tension is building as Cassie is black mailed into helping Faye wrestle power away from Diana.  Cassie finds herself hurting those she cares most about and also suffers a great loss in her family.  Cassie’s grandmother also reveals important information that none of the Circle knew about previously in hopes it will help them battle the dark force that was released.

Faye is one scary witch and you have to wonder how sane is she?  Poor Cassie finds herself stuck between a rock and a hard place and must decide if she will let Faye hurt Diana by revealing the connection between Cassie and Adam or hurt Diana herself by supporting Faye in her bid for power.  Deborah, Nick and the Henderson brothers are much more likeable in this book and the suspense of finding out whose side they will end up on as well keeps you hooked.  It’s been so long since I’ve read these books that I can’t wait to read the last book in the trilogy.
