I keep reading these books not because they're written super well, or because the characters are amazing (though I get increasingly attached to Alex), or because the plots are unique. I just like them. It's a quick, mindless read about a bunch of teenage rich girls who talk like they're from the past (which they ARE) and eat a lot of pizza and think they're really awesome. It reminds me of myself at that age - I was even into "wicca" or what not in middle school. Had like fifty books on it and c ...more
A book that's destined to be chucked right away to the nearest trash can. The plot sounds okay enough, definitely average judging by all the teen-oriented books one sees nowadays.

The problem with this book is that of the author's style of writing. It is so terrible! She filled the entire book with unreal teen speak that no self respecting 14 and/or 15 year old would dare use. The author continues using all the slang words available to humankind and having all the characters (even millenia-old w
I don't remember being as annoyed with the text short forms in the speech the first time I read this. I still like the story overall but o.m.g and the like don't belong in spoken words.

Book 2 of the T*Witches series.
You know, book 1 had a whole lot of promise but this book bombed. If I didn't already own books 3 and 6 I'd stop right here. Poor continuity, poor writer awareness of the proper weather for the geographic setting, poor awareness of current kid-lingo (too many different dialects), and the list goes on. Stay away from this book unless you want to torture yourself. My preteen daughter couldn't get past the first chapter before she gave up.

Overall, a great sequel. The reader gets more insight into the characters, events, and the greater magical world. One thing that did bug the crap out of me was the slang. Most of it I was ok with, it wasn't too dated. However, there were some instances such as: BBGF (Bye-bye girlfriend) where the phrase had been shorten to make it hip (I guess), but it's just ridiculous.

Setelah tau mereka memang sodara kembar, saatnya tau siapa musuhnya dong..
Cam dan Alex disuruh waspada karena Thantos pasti akan mengirim orang untuk menculik mereka.
Masalahnya di sekitar mereka ada 3 orang yang potensial jadi calon messenger-nya Thantos.
Selain itu juga dibahas sedikit latar belakang Ileana, guardian si kembar.

I thought it was awesome but you may have different thoughts cause I'm a child i thought it was fascinating and adventurous although I wish I had started from the beginning of the series they just seem so good to read they capture mt attention as the reader

Teen girls with witchy superpowers. Not bad but it is full of teen girl slang. Appropiate for the subject matter I suppose. Not really awe-inspiring. Just average. =)

A cute short read. It was the only book out of the series that I ever sat down and read.
Another continuation of the series. Not bad. But nothing interesting either.
