I actually liked this book better than the first, but sadly I'm pretty sure that was because of all the tension and fighting within the group. Plot and action improved somewhat from the previous book. I just really hope they don't drag it out for an extended series. In a perfect world #3 will be the last, but 4 wouldn't be completely horrible so long as the writing improves with each installment.

A good read before the new CW series "The Secret Circle" comes out in the fall based on the books by L.J Smith.
