Trilogy Review / Born Wicked Trilogy by Jessica Spotswood

Everybody knows Cate Cahill and her sisters are eccentric. Too pretty, too reclusive, and far too educated for their own good. But the truth is even worse: they’re witches. And if their secret is discovered by the priests of the Brotherhood, it would mean an asylum, a prison ship—or an early grave.

Before her mother died, Cate promised to protect her sisters. But with only six months left to choose between marriage and the Sisterhood, she might not be able to keep her word... especially after she finds her mother’s diary, uncovering a secret that could spell her family’s destruction. Desperate to find alternatives to their fate, Cate starts scouring banned books and questioning rebellious new friends, all while juggling tea parties, shocking marriage proposals, and a forbidden romance with the completely unsuitable Finn Belastra.

If what her mother wrote is true, the Cahill girls aren’t safe. Not from the Brotherhood, the Sisterhood—not even from each other.

What I liked about this series...  I have wanted to read this trilogy ever since it first came out back in 2012 and had bought each book when they came out wanting to read it urgently but never actually got around to read it.  I am so glad that I decided to read this trilogy now, it was such fun to read.  Not to mention the fact that this was about witches, which has to be my most favourite 'paranormal/supernatural' thing to read.

What I liked the most was the fact that this story was set in the past.  Honestly, I cannot remember what exact year but at a guess I would say around 1910 or something like that.  In that time period, it just added to the mystery and intrigue in watching Cate and her sisters trying to hide their secret from the outer world, especially when being a witch could just as well get them killed. 

What I didn't like about this series...  I would have loved to have had more surprises in the story.  A lot of the story was very predictable, not that being predictable is a bad thing but having a few surprises down the road would have made this more of a 5 star trilogy.
