Cassie's life is far from ordinary. Her best friends are a coven of witches and her relationship with her boyfriend, Adam, is written in the stars. As the leader of the Secret Circle, it is up to her to keep them safe. 

But then Cassie's evil half sister surfaces, determined to take Cassie's place in the Secret Circle. And a band of powerful witch-hunters begins targeting the group, determined to destroy them. Will the circle remain intact despite the powerfully evil magic that has infiltrated their ring? And will Cassie survive this ultimate battle between good and evil?

Went by quickly... In a Good Way

The book went by pretty quickly actually and in a good way. It was one of those 'finish in one sitting' kind of books and leaves you somewhat wanting more and thinking that it ended well at the same time.

The Hunt builds pretty well off the previous installments and does well with throwing a couple twists and surprises throughout the series. A number of things did appear a bit (at best) predictable by my tastes but I could probably shrug this off as being due to being accustomed so much to this genre of writing I can almost predict where the author is going with some things. That being said though, some of the things that were thrown at us throughout the scope of the title even caught me by surprised and I am left anticipating the next book to see how Cassie is able to maneuver her way out of the happenings in this title.

One thing that strikes me most in these books and it is brought about a bit more if you ask me by Cassie's mother involvement in the circle... but I can't help wondering to myself.... What the heck is up with the other parents in these books?! So many things happen in these titles to leave me a bit baffled to say the least as to why all the parents of the circle members aren't more involved in what is going on. As secretive as the kids are I am sure the parents aren't oblivious enough to know something is up and that maybe their children are in mortal danger. Outside that little qualm (which I have been having since the 2nd book) the entire title was pretty enjoyable.

The entire title remained true to the series and the genre it is trying to portray and the narration was also very fitting. As before, I look forward to see the follow up to this title.

Such a thrill!

I really enjoyed this book, it was really well thought-out and it was stunning. I didn't having one of the main characters be a stunning redhead was quite a treat. Looking forward to the rest of the series.

Hard to enjoy

None of the character's are likable in Aubrey Clark's continuation of this series. I really wanted to like this book. I actually did like the plot line and thought it was a great idea. But I couldn't connect to any of the characters and I actively dislike Cassie, which made the book so hard to get through. I like that instead of just corrupting Cassie, which is like beating a dead horse at this point, we have now corrupted the entire Circle. However, Cassie is still being awful and turning to more darkness. If the next book isn't better, I'm not sure I'll make it all the way through.

Slightly better than the last

As with the previous book in the series, I prefer LJ's writing - but this one was a little better. The story picked up it's pace a bit and there were a few twists that I didn't see coming!
I'll be reading the next one just to see what happens.
