So what follows is probably going to be more of a what-not-to-do essay for YA wickec, and I hope to God that future writers and publishers will take these points into consideration before publishing their books.
The plot was interesting, there were some nice turning points and surprises in it and the book was full of secrets that were wisely revealed step by step. So, she’s unhappy about having to marry someone and the person who IS interested in her hand is one of her old best friends who’s come back from schooling.

Maura on the other hand, oh how she annoys me!
But with only six months left to choose between marriage and the Sisterhood, she might not be able to keep her word And then there was the romance. I wager there will be a HEA at the close of the series.

She has no real feeling towards him whatsoever! After the death of their mother Cate has to take care of her sisters and watch over them so they are more careful with their magic.
Also, in the beginning like most of the new series it was rather slow for me.
