You can’t really compare the novel to the program, but I definitely enjoyed the book more. To the point where I struggled to put it down.
This is the 2nd volume and picks up from the point at the end of volume one.
The book is about 12 witches and is written in the point of view of the main character (Cassie Blake), who moves to a strange town in New England, with her Mom.
She doesn’t really fit in, until she meets “The club”, which is what “outsiders” call the witches, and starts hanging around with them. “The club” practically run the school.
Things are looking up for Cassie. So throw in a couple of murders, a few Witch hunters, some dark magic and a psycho undead witch.
There’s also a bit of forbidden love going on Between Cassie and Adam. (Diana’s boyfriend) Typical teen fiction stuff, gotta love a bit of bad romance.
Each character was very different and there was a lot of character building throughout the books.The two leaders of the club (or circle) are noticeable different. Faye is the wicked witch, whilst Diana is the pure witch. You immediately notice a divide of good and evil within the circle.
I liked how there were guy witches as well as girl witches. I also liked the fact that Diana’s room had Greek goddesses painted on the walls, in connection to their powers.
The ending was exciting and concluded the novels nicely.
All in all, this book sort of reminded me of a program me and my sister used to watch called “charmed”.
