Caught in the struggle between good and evil . . .
Cassie has joined the most alluring—and deadly—in-crowd imaginable. But power comes with a price, and it's more dangerous than she knows. Torn between the dueling desires of the two leaders of the Secret Grcle, she must ultimately choose between saving all of New Salem, and her own dangerous love for the bewitching Adam, which threatens to tear the circle apart. In the ultimate battle between good and evil, will Cassie's supernatural powers be strong enough to lead the coven out of danger? Or will she foil prey to the dark forces within?
. . . will she sacrifice her love for the circle to survive?
What i thought: this book is amazing. It is one of those books that you have to read, with all the drama, passion, forbiddon love and everything you just can't get enough of; sort of like Twilight with a twist: they're witches. They draw in attention, and sometimes not JUST because theyre attractive (yes, the guys are sexy--okay, not Sean or the Henderson brothers, just Adam and Nick, but still--and the girls are pretty attractive. . . especially Faye and Diana). They seem odd, and form this clique that basically rules the school; Faye being the one who rules the guys. Usually the taken ones. Nobody questions their authority. The Club is the ULTIMATE clique, but there's a hitch: You have to be from Crow Haven Road to join. Not only that, but you have to be a WITCH.
The only thing that i dislike a bit is that you have to get the other book in order to keep going from where it ended. The books with in the omnibus usually tend to end in the middle of scenes, sometimes even CONVERSATIONS. I wish Smith just kept it to one book, but then again I love the suspense. And, i must say, L.J. Smith is an AMAZING Sci-Fi/Horror/Fantasy writer. All of her books are filled with suspense and surprises; LJ Smith really delivers. This book will have you hooked untill you turn the last page .
You will hang on to each and every word, and the Secret Circle will be in your mind LONG after you turn the last page; I highly reccomend it.
The Secret Circle: The Captive Part II and The Power is the second book in this amazing series, and before you read this one, you must read the first: The Secret Cirlcle: The Initiation and The Captive. If you enjoy these books, i recomend The Vampire Diaries or The Night World also by L.J. Smith, and The House of Night novels by P.C. + Kristen Cast (and vice-versa).
