Born Wicked - Review

Perfect, corset-wearing, pretty witches disguised as innocent, perpetual girls. Boys who manipulate society to bend in their will. And a plethora of spells to cast down New England's petty streets in the year 1900.

Cate Cahill and her sisters have a secret. And it involves little murmurs that magically repair ripped dresses, turning things into new objects, and controlling the environment around them. Witches are a taboo in a life where the Brotherhood, a band of conservative, women-demoralizing men, keep girls silent and stuck on traditionally feminine tasks. 

Can Cate Cahill keep her "brewing" secret forever? Or will a spell slip out before she can retract it? Also, she needs to remain flawless in the eyes of her primary suitor, long-time friend Paul.

Jessica Spotswood evidently dotted her I's and crossed her T's. I enjoyed the witchery, the lingering glances of handsome Paul, and the paranoia within the mysteries of a secret letter Cate receives. I recommend this book to devout witch-book fans, someone looking for a little historical fiction fantasy, or someone like myself, a rookie to all things spell-casted!
