My Review    6 out of 10

I was very intrigued when I heard that a new Secret Circle book was going to be realease, albeit a little disappointed that it was not going to be written by LJ SMith but I was definately intrigued enough to want to try this out and see where the new author takes the Secret Circle.  When I first started reading I did worry and think that I would not remember much of what happened before because it has been quite a while since I read the first three books in this series but I have to say that Aubrey has done an excellent job at playing catch up in the first few chapters.  

Of course, there is a lot in this book I won't talk about here as this is a part of a series, but I have to admit that I really did enjoy this story, I liked how the different characters had new problems to solve and possible enemies to face.   The only part of this book that I particularly did not enjoy as much was the character interations with each other, they were constantly saying one thing and doing another and sometimes it seemed just for the sake of  being mean or selfish.  

The ending was not a complete surprise to me, I had figured it out earlier on in the book but, all in all, this was an enjoyable book and I definatley will be picking up the next book to see what happens next. 

Best wishes
