Exclusive Cover Reveal: Star Cursed (The Cahill Witch Chronicles book #2) by Jessica Spotswood / A Giveaway

I am so excited to be able to share this post with you guys! I'm thrilled to be teaming up with Penguin Teen to reveal Jessica Spotswood's upcoming release and sequel to Born Wicked, STAR CURSED, the second installment in The Cahill Witch Chronicles. If you haven't already, I highly recommend picking up the first book in the series. You can read my glowing review for it here

Check out this stunning cover for STAR CURSED!


I am in LOVE with this cover! I don't even know what else to say other than WOW! It's mesmerizing. The stars, the storm brewing in the back ground, and having whom I assume is Cate standing in a field/meadow outlined by trees. I am really looking forward to finding out how this cover ties into the story. It's a beautiful cover. What do you guys think? 


About The Book:

With the Brotherhood persecuting witches like never before, a divided Sisterhood desperately needs Cate to come into her Prophesied powers. And after Cate's friend Sachi is arrested for using magic, a war-thirsty Sister offers to help her find answers—if Cate is willing to endanger everyone she loves.

 Cate doesn't want to be a weapon, and she doesn't want to involve her friends and Finn in the Sisterhood's schemes. But when Maura and Tess join the Sisterhood, Maura makes it clear that she'll do whatever it takes to lead the witches to victory. Even if it means sacrifices. Even if it means overthrowing Cate. Even if it means all-out war.

 In the highly anticipated sequel to Born Wicked, the Cahill Witch Chronicles continue Cate, Maura and Tess's quest to find love, protect family, and explore their magic against all odds in an alternate history of New England.

Penguin Teen will be releasing this exciting sequel on June 18th, 2013!

"Blessed with a gift..."cursed" with a secret."

Everybody knows Cate Cahill and her sisters are eccentric. Too pretty, too reclusive, and far too educated for their own good. But the truth is even worse: they're witches. And if their secret is discovered by the priests of the Brotherhood, it would mean an asylum, a prison ship - or an early grave.

Before her mother died, Cate promised to protect her sisters. But with only six months left to choose between marriage and the Sisterhood, she might not be able to keep her word . . . especially after she finds her mother's diary, uncovering a secret that could spell her family's destruction. Desperate to find alternatives to their fate, Cate starts scouring banned books and questioning rebellious new friends, all while juggling tea parties, shocking marriage proposals, and a forbidden romance with the completely unsuitable Finn Belastra.

If what her mother wrote is true, the Cahill girls aren't safe. Not from the Brotherhood, the Sisterhood - not even from each other -quoted from Goodreads

Released on February 7th of this year, Born Wicked has received a new cover make over.   The paperback with this lovely cover will be out on 1/7/13. Normally I'm not a fan of new covers, but I LOVE this cover! You can pick up a copy of BORN WICKED from Penguin | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | IndieBound.

  1. It is a beautiful cover, but I wish they would have kept the same theme as the hardback from the first- that was my favorite cover of last year!

    1. I love the hb cover as well, and I'm normally not a fan of cover changes, but I love what they've done with these covers. Though I wish they could release a hc with the new Born Wicked cover on it.

  2. I did love the cover for the first book, but I think this one is really pretty too. It does look more YA, I suppose. (Probably why I liked the first cover so much cause I'm not a teen.) I really do like the Star Cursed cover too!Can't wait to read it!!!

    1. I totally agree. I loved the first one, but love the new cover as well. I think these two covers stand out more, and they're both beautiful covers. Not that the first cover wasn't. I think all three covers have been amazing.

  6. This is a series that I just haven't gotten around to yet, I need to move it closer to the top of my TBR pile!

  7. Definitely a pretty cover...but I preferred the original...maybe because I am not a tween/teen. But I can see how these new covers will appeal more to a younger target audience.

    So sad though that my covers won't match on yet another series...I'll probably just borrow these from the library.

  31. I have an issue with the cover for Star Cursed. The height of the font for the series (The Cahill Witch Chronicles) isn't consistent, and it's obvious and it's really bugging me. BUT I will say that it's so much better than that new cover for Born Wicked (though I feel that the new cover will reel in more of the 'right' audience--teens looking for a book about witches).

    I liked Born Wicked okay. I wasn't in love, or really killing myself over the 'cliffhanger', but I do want to continue on. I hope I'm not disappointed!

  32. The cover is gorgeous! Plus, I love the title-Star Cursed. Seems really intriguing!

  33. The two covers look great together. They each give a sense of what the story is about, but it's also obvious that the two are part of the same series. Gorgeous!

  34. Thanks for the great giveaway! I love the new cover!!!
