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.
Since reading Born Wicked, I’ve been wondering about the kinds of awful things that might happen to turn the sisters against one another in the grand finale. I got my answer in Sisters’ Fate. And while it’s heartbreaking to witness all the brutality, chaos and deaths, I loved this book so much that I’d made a note in my planner to carve out time in the upcoming weeks to re-read the entire series.
The ending of Star Cursed (book two) was agonizing. Cate was deeply hurt and I wasn’t surprised to see her unleashing her anger in this installment. It’s quick to see who Cate’s true friends were and I liked that we got to see some blossoming friendships among the witches living in the convent.
With Maura continued to act as though she knew what’s best for all witches, it’s not difficult to imagine how antagonistic things were among the sisters. Tess was troubled by her nightmarish vision and when her bigger sisters kept fighting so much, she didn’t know who to turn to for comfort and support. And it certainly didn’t help when Cate was exposed and became the most wanted witch in all of New England! Things went downhill from there and the prophecy was ominously fulfilled, with heart-wrenching moments that made me gasp, cry and sigh.
In the end, I felt I understood all three sisters in ways I’d never expected. They were all courageous, brave and powerful in their own way, and I felt I learned so much about sisterly bond through reading this series.
While I’d hoped to see what New England might become when Tess grew older, it’s satisfying to learn that most things ended on a hopeful note. If I could make a wish, I’d wish that a spinoff series would be written featuring Tess as the main character.
