Review: Sister's Fate

Title: Sister's Fate
Author: Jessica Spotswood
Series: The Cahill Witch Chronicls #3
Publisher: Putnam Juvenile
Publication Date: August 14, 2014
Source: Purchased.


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.

I'm going to miss this series so bad! After the huge ending of Star Curses, I could not wait for this book and it delivered everything I was hoping for.

I really loved Cate throughout the series, imperfections and all. I appreciated how much she did care about her sisters, despite everything that was going on. I also loved Tess. I really felt for her, with everything going on with the prophecy, but also with the more mundane struggle of growing up, especially with a big sister as protective as Cate. Maura drove me bit up the wall. I know she was opinionated and her opinions differed from Cate's, but she really was painfully stubborn and I have so much trouble forgiving her for the end of Star Cursed.

It was a bit tough to watch Cate and Finn, after the ending of Star Cursed. But I did enjoy the development there and I don't really want to say too much more for the sake of spoilers.

There is a ton of action in this one, which was to be expected in the final book of a trilogy. I loved seeing a bit of all of Cate's friends in the finale. I really loved Mei and Rilla, so I was glad they had parts in this story.

Overall, I'm sad to see this series end and I can't wait to see what Jessica Spotswood does next!

  1. Yay! I am so excited that this had a great ending. I loved book one but decided to wait to read book two until this one came out. Looks like I really need to start reading it, especially now that I know the ending was so good.

  2. I've never got to read Star Curses even though I have heard amazing things about the this series. I'm so happy that you've enjoyed this one and I'll have to read it now that the whole series is out. Great review, Megan :)

  3. Yes!! My review post later this month Megan and I loved this series. This was such a good book!

  4. This didn't really work for me in the first book, but it sounds so awesome now! Since they'll all out, I might just give them another try. Why not? I've seen so many fabulous reviews, yours included.

  5. Ahh, I wasn't too much of a fan on the first one, I did enjoy it, but some things really annoyed me (mainly Maura.) I'll probably finish the series eventually, since I hate not finishing one, but glad you enjoyed it, even with Maura driving you up the wall. ;)

  6. Aww, it's so great to hear how much you loved this series, Megan! And also that it had a great, satisfying ending because that doesn't always happen with series these days. I think I'll move book 1 up my tbr now :)
