I am re-reading this series after reading in during my middle school years (1992). It's a fast, fun, easy read that will appeal to many teenagers today. Sure, there are some anachronisms like pagers, but that's kind of fun! Suspend your imagination for a little bit and enjoy. ( )

Continues the story of the teen coven where the fist book left off (exactly where it left off this is not a stand alone). This time the coven is doing battle with great evil and have to decide who to trust within New Salem. ( )

When we last saw Cassie, she was essentially being blackmailed by Faye, in an attempt to not hurt Diana with the secret of her forbidden relationship with Adam. This one picks up right where the last one left off, since they essentially split the middle book in the trilogy in two for the different omnibus editions.

So, Cassie doesn’t like Faye, but doesn’t want Diana to know all the wretched things she’s been doing for Faye, so she starts stepping away from their friendship. It’s an interesting reminder of what high school used to be like, because I’ve been out of that environment for so long that I forget how little things like this could be a big deal. In my world, I’d just tell Diana what happened, but whatever.

I enjoyed the second book much better than the first one. Now that the first had set the pace, this one got to be filled with many of the action moments, which I enjoyed immensely. One thing that hasn’t changed since book 1 is its predictability. I could guess the skull’s relationship to Cassie by the end of the first book, and it is obvious she will be voted leader and will fix everything (she is, after all, the protagonist). At the end of the day, I like the message this book sends to girls, but plot and narration have a lot more work to do if they want to reach out to a wider audience. With that said, the book series and its author has its own set of fans, and I totally respect and support that. ( )
