Gr 9 Up—It's not easy being a 17-year-old witch charged with slaying paranormal beings. Living in modern-day Connecticut, narrator Jules and her four childhood friends are "Revealer" witches—able to force werewolves, vampires, and ghosts to expose themselves so they can be destroyed. This usually happens in the dead of night, messing with the girls' sleep schedules and grades, but sacrifices have to be made to protect the innocent, right? But when Margo turns 18 and is inducted into the witches' inner circle to which all of their mothers belong, the other teens know that something is not right, and they begin to wonder if their enemies are the mothers themselves or the creatures they slay. This story grabs readers and carries them along to the entertainingly surreal and totally unexpected climax. A secondary plot of forbidden romance between Jules and the coven leader's son adds to the mood. Throughout, the characters become more clearly defined with quirks and unique traits, and how each girl deals with what she learns during her induction remains true to her personality. The dialogue has a lot of strong language. This supernatural thriller will keep genre fans happy and waiting for more from this author.

I'm a little disappointed with this book. at first i really liked it but at the end, the 'worst nightmare ever' wasn't a 'worst nightmare' it was more of a 'Ok, i understand' bad guy. and i also like what happens with the two friends near the end of the book. (not saying who so i don't spoil too much) but besides that the rest of it could have been written better. the story line is great though! I hope you enjoy this book more than i did!

i really liked this book. and yes there was some "how stupid are you!?" moments, but in all the books i have read, (which, trust me, are A LOT, like over 10 a month) most of them have had those moments once or twice. its a part of the books, and a way the author keeps you envovled, i find. because you have figured out who the bad guy is and what their up to, but the character hasnt, will they and how will they figure it out? it keeps you envolved. I liked this enough to ask "Is there a second coming along?!"
Hope you enjoy this book.
P.S. Here are some of my favorite authors... Kelly Armstrong, P.C. Cast/ Kristen Cast.
Try The Summoning by Kelly Armstrong
Lily Dale by Wendy Corsi Staub
Fallen by Lauren Kate is also amazing.
I could list many more books and authors, but I realize how long this is getting!
Thanks for this amazing book!!!!!

This is pretty much your typical tween book. I got bored and had to force myself to finish it. It wasn't a long book so it didn't take long but I didn't enjoy it either. I liked the concept but it was too young for me. I wanted to slap a few characters and there were lots of *facepalm* moments in the book. If you're a young adult or older but like picking up a teen book here and there I probably wouldn't recommend this one.

If you're a teen then you'd probably enjoy.
