Everybody thinks Cate Cahill and her sisters are eccentric. Too pretty, too reclusive, and far too educated for their own good. But the truth is even worse: And if their secret is discovered by the priests of the Brotherhood, it would mean an asylum, a prison ship–or an early grave. Then Cate finds her mother’s diary, and uncovers a secret that could spell her family’s destruction.
Desperate to find alternatives to their fate, Cate starts scouring banned books and questioning rebellious new friends, all while juggling tea parties, shocking marriage proposals, and a forbidden romance with the completely wciked Finn Belastra.
But if what her mother wrote is true, the Cahill girls aren’t safe–not even from each other. Read more Read less. Discover Prime Book Box for Kids. Add all three to Cart Add all three to List.

Please try again later. Cate Cahill is a witch, as are her two younger sisters, Maura and Tess. Unfortunately, it’s a bad time to be a witch in Cate’s place and time, with the Brotherhood the priests who run the town on the lookout for any girls who even seem like they might be witches.
Cate made a promise to her mother, while her mother was dying, that she would look after her sisters sicked make sure nothing happened to them. That spotseood is getting harder and harder to keep as her sisters rebel against Cate’s rules to not use magic and the Brotherhood gets increasingly aggressive about locking up girls who are the slightest bit different on suspicion of witchery.
To complicate matters further, Cate is nearing the age when she will be expected to announce either her betrothal or her intention to join the Sisterhood, the sister organization of the Brotherhood which requires vows of chastity and humble service spotswodo life.
Cate is interested in neither prospect. What she desires most is to stay at home and continue watching over her sisters.
The Cahill sisters already have a reputation as eccentric and antisocial. When a nosy neighbor intervenes and talks their father into hiring a governess from the Sisterhood to guide the girls into proper behavior, Cate is sure their secrets will come out and they will soptswood be in grave danger. What Cate doesn’t know, is that this governess has secrets of her own, and her and her sisters’ lives are in much more danger than she ever thought possible. Born Wicked was a very enjoyable read.
The danger and excitement are present pretty much from the beginning of the book to the end, making it a real spotswoos. I read it in just two days. Cate is a great heroine. She’s brave, loyal, and likeable, but human at the same time.
Fiercely protective of her sisters, it’s hard not to admire all she is willing to sacrifice to keep them safe. I thought all the characters were well-developed, especially Cate’s sisters. The arguments and strife between them seem so true to life, despite the fact that they are very different from your average girls. I loved Finn, and I thought the way the relationship between he and Cate developed was both romantic and realistic.
Born Wicked / Sisters’ Fate (Cahill Witch Chronicles) by Jessica Spotswood
I was easily drawn into the story and felt like I was right there with Cate, experiencing her thoughts and feelings right along with her. I highly recommend Born Wicked. It has been on my TBR list for a long time and I’m kicking myself for not reading it sooner.
I’ve already started the next book in the series, Star Cursed, and I’m loving it just as much! I usually write my reviews right after I’ve finished reading a book and before I start another one, but Born Wicked ended in a cliffhanger, and I just couldn’t wait. Born Wicked is a great start to what looks like a great trilogy.
You can see more of my book reviews at http: In an alternate version of New England in the 19th century, life for women is highly structured and highly boring, thanks to the strict governance of the Brotherhood. The ideal woman must be chaste, ignorant, and obedient, declaring her commitment at age 17 to either the religious order of the Sisterhood or to a husband. Cate, Maura, and Tess were all born witches.
Following the death of their beloved mother, eldest sister Cate has dedicated her life to protecting and caring for Maura and Tess, a task that consumes her even as she faces her ever-approaching commitment ceremony, some unexpected correspondence, a meddling new governess, more suitors than she knows what to do with, and a dark family secret that will undo all that she has worked to save.
If she were an ordinary girl, it would be so easy to simply pursue the advances of Paul, the handsome boy next door, or even Finn, the scholarly gardener who catches her eye. Cate Cahill, of course, is far from ordinary. In the end or is it really the beginning? What will become of the Cahill girls? Born Wicked is a stunning debut novel that features strong characters and plenty of intrigue, romance, and magic to please older readers. The story of the Cahill witches is not one to miss.
This review originally appeared on ABookandaHug. I started it just because witch stories can be fun and or cool. The three books here wound up being all three. And I’m sure, even more than I’m stating here. I think,based on my non-existent education, it is written very well and that it was planned out very well. This was a really good series in the “witches” genre. I don’t even know why it would be Young Adult. It is maybe not for kids – though I don’t recall a single swear word utilized- but written for a certain level of maturity “at least” but certainly not limited.
Bottom line here is read them, if you’re interested, read them. They’re more about the characters than “evil spells and rituals” but they wouldn’t be nearly as good if they weren’t. When I got to the endafter forming the same opinions as many others I’m sure, It was still emotional. I think that’s why. Being so sure in my heart, I continued through the series expecting exactly that.
The two have to survive, it has to be the other one – right? But when it unfoldedwe are forced to face our opinions, decisions and attitudes just like Cate. See all reviews.
