Sneak a Peek Saturday is a feature that I like to indulge in because I cannot wait to read the tasty tid bits that are put out there for us ravenous readers to enjoy.  

Earlier this year I read a wonderful book by a debut author. That book was BORN WICKED by Jessica Spotswood. I simply adored it and have been waiting on tender hooks ever since for it's sequel STAR CURSED. Now, I can get a little happy by enjoying this tasty first chapter treat and if you are a fan (how could you not be?) Then enjoy this bit also.

CLICK ON THE BOOK COVER AND READ THE FIRST CHAPTER

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.

  1. I can not wait for this sequel. However, I hope that's not the final cover. It's beautiful, yes. But it just doesn't have the same feel and charm as the first hardback cover, you know?

    Though, seriously, I can not wait for Jessica Spotswood story telling of the Cahill sisters! ^_^

    Thanks for posting the sneak peak Nancy!

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”

Nora Ephron, I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman
