"good read better than the show "
4 stars"

this is nothing like the tv show and i think its better so far and give a good background to the shows info . i read this book before the show was released and found it refreshing. once i started reading i had it finished by the 2nd day and was on to the next one. my only thing i didn't like was that it ended at a really good spot at the end of the 4th book and that's there's only 4 books books.

This clique rules the school – no one dare cross them – but Cassie feels a strange kinship with them, and when she is initiated into their ‘secret circle’ she is both terrified and thrilled to be part of a coven of witches that have controlled New Salem for hundreds of years…But then Cassie falls in love. Now she has a tough decision to make: does she walk away, or does she step over to the dark side?
