Waiting on Wednesday


"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, originally started by Jill at Breaking the Spine , that highlights upcoming book releases everyone is waiting on...hence the title. This week's pick is Star Cursed by Jessica Spotswood.  Here's the synopsis:

With the Brotherhood persecuting witches like never before, a divided Sisterhood desperately needs Cate to come into her Prophesied powers. And after Cate's friend Sachi is arrested for using magic, a war-thirsty Sister offers to help her find answers—if Cate is willing to endanger everyone she loves.

Cate doesn't want to be a weapon, and she doesn't want to involve her friends and Finn in the Sisterhood's schemes. But when Maura and Tess join the Sisterhood, Maura makes it clear that she'll do whatever it takes to lead the witches to victory. Even if it means sacrifices. Even if it means overthrowing Cate. Even if it means all-out war.

In the highly anticipated sequel to Born Wicked, the Cahill Witch Chronicles continue Cate, Maura and Tess's quest to find love, protect family, and explore their magic against all odds in an alternate history of New England.

I Loved Born Wicked and I still remember the heart wrenching ending, so of course I cannot wait to read Star Cursed.  Whilst I do like this cover, I'm always going to be pissed off that it was changed part way through the series.  I realise this is not the fault of the author as they have nothing to do with it but I do wish publishing houses wouldn't do this.  Anyway, I am glad that I get to read this in June as I buy the US hardback and it beats waiting another 6 months for the UK copy :)

Star Cursed is published on 18th June, 2013 in the US with no UK date as of yet (but I'm guessing some time next year).

  1. I don't remember the first book but I'm loving the emphasis on female friendship in this synopsis-I hope that is an accurate representation of what the series is about!

    1. I think that emphasis is more in the second book than the first although having said that, the first book was very much about sisterly bonds which is the same thing as female friendship :)
