Το δεύτερο μέρος είναι και αυτό απλοϊκότατα γραμμένο, γρήγορο, μπαίνει κατευθείαν στο ψητό κ.λ.π. όπως κ το πρώτο. Το όλο βιβλίο σώζει όμως το αρκετά καλό τέλος του, που άξαφνα ξεσηκώνει τον αναγνώστη κ τον κάνει να θέλει να διαβάσει κ το επόμενο, εκεί που θεωρούσε ότι θα τα παρατήσει!!! Δεν ξέρω για τους άλλους βασικά πάντως εμένα αυτό μου συνέβη! :D

Review at Miss Book Reviews.

*WARNING: This section contains spoilers for the first book!*

Now that Cassie is officially in 'The Club' and now known as one of the 'in' group at school she finds life so much better, she feels welcome and wanted, not like a disease everyone is trying to avoid. Unfortunately for her she is dealing with her desires for Adam, Diana's boyfriend, whom she fell in love with on the beach last summer (One meeting is all it took...). She loves Diana and she would never wa
When I review a book, I usually look at two things, first is if the story is good and second is if the characters are likeable.

1. The story

I liked the story very much, the suspense was exciting and as they're coming to reach a conclusion I feel that I wanna find it out with them. Sometimes I can't put the book down because I wanna know what's next. Cassie's inside conflict was kind of ridiculous for me but the issue about the evil spirit was kind of cool.

2. The characters

This is book 2 in The Secret Circle series. See my review of book 1 here. This book was just as good as the first in the series. The tension is building as Cassie is black mailed into helping Faye wrestle power away from Diana. Cassie finds herself hurting those she cares most about and also suffers a great loss in her family. Cassie’s grandmother also reveals important information that none of the Circle knew about previously in hopes it will help them battle the dark force that was released.

This book was even better than the first one! We get to know more things about the people who form the circle something i really needed because i couldn't distinguish them in the first book. Twelve characters were a lot for me to handle and i'm really impressed with the author because not only she manages to involve them all in the action but she also made each of them unique.

I'm glad Cassie got more stronger in this book both in spirit and in magic, seeing the main character being weak all the

Recommends it for: witch lovers like myself
Cassie is being blackmailed by Faye. But doing what Faye asks will be the ultimate form of betrayal. Will Cassie go through with it?
If she doesn't, she runs the risk of destroying her relationship with Diana, and perhaps the entire Circle. But if she does, something evil might be unleashed on New Salem. An old and very powerful evil.

In my review of The Initiation, I mentioned I'm biased on this trilogy. Biased as hell. Wish I wasn't, but I am.

For one thing, I was obsessed with the TV show. I als
Вторая книга этой трилогии самая адекватная в плане издания серии в России. В отличие от первой и третьей, у этой книги адекватный переводчик. Нет ощущения, что персонажи на зоне, нет обращений типа "Фейющка", "Шонушка" и фраз "Лорелина бабка" (так вообще нельзя говорить).
И обложка эта лучшая из трех (ну-ну, из трех зол выбираем...)
По содержанию у меня любимая 3-я книга, но русский вариант читабельный только этот.
Спасибо переводчику.

Captiva este volumul doi, continuarea voulumului Ritualul ambele facand parte din trilogia Cercul secret. La fel ca si la Ritualul, cartea am cumparat-o de la revista BRAVO! Dupa parerea mea, atuul lui L.J.Smith este descrierea personajelor pe care le face aproape perfecte, in orice caz superbe e un cuvant banal.
Din nou, coperta nu m-a atras prea mult;insa stiam de talentul autoarei si totusi am cumparat-o.

Woot, just reread this! My main point? I wish that they had taken the last scene (actually, all of it) and at least stuck that one into the tv show. Eerie red lights and weird shadow figures killing grandma's? Freaky as shit! Instead, we get parents murdering their parents. Yeah, that might be more 'realistic' in a witch drama show. Maybe. Actually, a demon/devil/spirit dude killing for revenge is a lot more likely of a scenario.

Completely easy to read by now, but it's still a good book. This on

I liked this one a lot more than I liked the last one, the last one, I don't know...It wasn't as thrilling as I wanted it to be. But this one really had me hooked. I loved Cassie in this book as she really came into her own character, she was strong (for the most part) and I genuinely like he

Could not put this down! The series just keeps getting better and better. I'm sad I'm already two books through the series. The development of this story is constantly keeping me guessing, and I'm growing to like each character for what they bring to it as a whole. I can quickly see this series becoming my new guilty pleasure!

Η L. J. Smith είναι μια από τις πιο πολυσυζητημένες συγγραφείς στον κόσμο. Οι λόγοι, πολλοί και διάφοροι, ανάμεσα στους οποίους μπορούμε να ξεχωρίσουμε ορισμένους. Ο πρώτος εξ αυτών, έχει να κάνει με το γεγονός ότι ο εκδοτικός της οίκος, μετά από μακροχρόνια συνεργασία, την πέταξε έξω από τα projects που η ίδια δημιούργησε. Ο δεύτερος, με το ότι οι δύο πιο δημοφιλείς σειρές της, μεταφέρθηκαν στη μικρή οθόνη, η μία με μεγάλη επιτυχία και η δεύτερη, έχοντας μικρότερη τύχη. Ο τρίτος και τελευταίος ...more

Mit Diana verbindet sie eine tiefe Freundschaft, die allerdings die ersten Risse bekommt, denn ausgerechnet Adam ist der Mann ihrer Träume, doch dieser ist bereits seit Jahren mit Diana zusammen.
Dennoch kommen sich Adam und Cassie näher, was nicht unentdeckt bleibt, denn ausgerechnet Faye's Spione entdecken die Beiden und t

Again, another work of genius by the amazing L.J. Smith.

I have to say that the first time I read this book was only over a year ago but even then I fell in love with it and, no matter how hard I tried to get it out of my head, I just had had had to reread it and refresh the brilliance of it in my mind.

In my review of The Initiation, I did say that as a teenager myself I was able to identify with Cassie in her insecurity and naivety and, even in this book I am still able to identify with her fo

The Captive Part 1 is the first part of the second instalment in The Secret Circle book series written by L. J. Smith. When the book series was first published back in 1992, both parts of The Captive were published in one book. I have made the decision to review The Captive Part 1 and The Captive Part 2 separately rather than as a whole because I like to review books as I read them.

The Captive is the second book in the Secret Circle trilogy by L J Smith. In this book Faye tightens her hold around Cassie - blackmailing her over her love for Adam and forcing her to betray Diana. At the same time the Circle learns that a dark power is on the loose and killing, and Cassie begins to suspect that the crystal skull recovered from Black John's articles is behind the deaths.
