Rating:
A fever ravages New London, but with the Brotherhood sending suspected witches straight to the gallows, the Sisters are powerless against the disease. They can’t help without revealing their powers—as Cate learns when a potent display of magic turns her into the most wanted witch in all of New England.

To make matters worse, Cate has been erased from the memory of her beloved Finn. While she’s torn between protecting him from further attacks and encouraging him to fall for her all over again, she’s certain she can never forgive Maura’s betrayal. And now that Tess’s visions have taken a deadly turn, the prophecy that one Cahill sister will murder another looms ever closer to its fulfillment.

Let's be honest, those of us who read Star Cursed have been haunted by the ending of that book for quite some time now, right? The hurt, betrayal and just the pain was still strong. A cliffhanger of that magnitude is rare and especially one that blindsided mostly everyone. We've been dying to read more but at the same time, aren't you terrified? The prophecy is a scary thing. The pain we felt from the ending of Star Cursed is still very fresh and yet, we want to pick this book up and possibly put ourselves through more of it? This is why, my dear fellow readers, I have put off reading this book even though I've had it in my possession for a month now. I was terrified but dying . . . dying to know more.

I am going to vague, as I do not want to spoil anything for anyone but this book was damn brilliant. When I read the previous two books, I fell and boy did I fall hard. The characters, the world, the imaginary, the story, just everything. I thrived for more and honestly, a trilogy just isn't enough. I could read books and books and books of these characters. Especially with ones that we only just met in this book. And I know you hear from me a lot about how series finales are brilliant and all that jazz but believe me when I say, I don't think any of them can top the finale that was Sisters' Fate. Seriously. I have been sitting on this book for hours and I just feel . . . well, I just feel so much. I am so utterly torn and heartbroken and hopeful and yet, satisfied? I could go for more, as I said, but it doesn't mean that there's not an ending. There is. There could be more, there could be spin-off series (I believe) but there is a conclusion but it is a very bumpy ride getting there.

I didn't think these books could get better after Star Cursed and I had high hopes and high expectations for this book and it blew all my expectations away. You will cry. You will cringe. You will want to murder someone. Or maybe a few someone's. You will want revenge. You will want kisses. You will want love. Most importantly, you will want family to win out in the end. Is family only blood, though? I don't think so. Family is so much more than just blood relatives but blood relatives should be what's most important. Right?

If you haven't read these books because you don't like witches or you don't like the time period or what have you, I seriously suggest giving them another chance. I'm not the biggest fan of witch books but these will always be an exception. If you've read the previous two books, I know you'll be picking this one up because no matter how you feel about the books, how can you not after having dealt with such a horrid cliffhanger? If you haven't read the books, aren't you a little curious as to what this insane cliffhanger is? Good thing is, now you don't have to wait like the rest of us. We are envious.

Thank you so much to Jen from Jenuine Cupcakes for letting me borrow her ARC. So in turn, thank you so much to Penguin for allowing me the chance to read this book in exchange for an honest review.



One lucky winner will get the chance to get a copy of Sisters' Fate personalized by Jessica Spotswood. If you'd rather get Born Wicked or Star Cursed, that can be arranged instead. This giveaway is open to international readers. It ends on August 5 at 11:59 PM EST. Good luck and may the odds be ever in your favor! :)
