    If there was ever a book I eagerly awaited it’s SISTER’S FATE by Jessica Spotswood. If you want proof of my insane level of devotion to this series, read my review of the second book in the series, STAR CURSED. I’m actually a little crazy.

If you want proof of my insane level of devotion to this series, read my review of the second book in the series, STAR CURSED. I’m actually a little crazy. Reading this book was extra special because I had just gotten back from shooting King of the Nerds and read most of it while watching my kids at the pool, I had missed them so much so it was a really fun time of doing my favorite past time with my favorite people. As far as series finales go, this was a great one. I’ve read some that are fantastic (ALLEGIANT by Veronica Roth, for example) and extremely disappointing (REQUIEM by Lauren Oliver) so I know how to gauge it pretty well, and I’ve got high expectations for these characters I’ve loved since book one. I loved that Spotswood kept with the themes I loved from the series like education for girls and overall feminism. I also liked that the cast of characters she had developed for two books got so much page time. It’s always frustrating when authors throw a bunch of new characters at you last-minute when all you wanted was to see how the lives of the characters you’ve grown to love the entire series ended up. Light spoiler: I did think that the resolution to Cate’s love story was a little too clean. It follows that pattern of falling in love in the first book, things get shitty in the second book, and then we’re happy by the third. I don’t know. I guess I kinda loved the heartbreak in STAR CURSED. It was different, it was sad, it was tragic. I would have been okay if that had continued a little. I’m kind of a sadist, I guess. You all should be glad I don’t write books! I liked the way that the prophecy played out in the end. It really reminded me of how in Buffy, prophecies are tricky little things that aren’t always what they seem. I would recommend the series as a whole and I think that fans will like the ending to the Cahill Witch Chronicles. THE END OF STAR CURSED! SERIOUSLY? That "Et tu, Brute?" moment at the end broke my heart. Why can't time go faster?!

    It's not often that you encounter a series where each book is better than the previous one, but Jessica Spotswood may have achieved this with her Cahill Witch Chronicles. 'Sisters' Fate' is the third and final chapter in the story of Cate Cahill and her magic-wielding sisters living in an alternate version of late nineteenth-century New England. With the help of their fellow witches, the Cahill sisters work to undermine the corrupt oligarchy of the Brotherhood, which seeks to eliminate magic and It's not often that you encounter a series where each book is better than the previous one, but Jessica Spotswood may have achieved this with her Cahill Witch Chronicles. 'Sisters' Fate' is the third and final chapter in the story of Cate Cahill and her magic-wielding sisters living in an alternate version of late nineteenth-century New England. With the help of their fellow witches, the Cahill sisters work to undermine the corrupt oligarchy of the Brotherhood, which seeks to eliminate magic and all who practice it. Cate joins forces with a group known as the Resistance who have been fighting back against the Brotherhood for years. All the while Cate struggles to balance her increasingly hostile relationship with her sister, dissent among the witches, and her complicated love life. (Unlike most Young Adult series, "complicated" here does not mean that there's a love triangle. Cate's relationship with Finn is actually one of the healthiest examples of teen romance in YA.) With her fierce spirit and quick wit, Cate Cahill is easily one of my favorite YA heroines. Cate is not defined by her magic, but by how she chooses to use it. She's intelligent, strong, and she'll stop at nothing to protect the people she loves. 'Sisters' Fate' is a breathless race to the finish, never lagging for a second. Spotswood writes with confidence and purpose, expertly juggling old characters and new ones. The alliance with the Resistance provides a fresh angle on the battle against the Brotherhood, and the epic finale is satisfying without pandering. All three books work so well as a whole, you can't help but marvel at the beauty of this trilogy.

    Actual rating: 3.5 stars. You know it's been a really great trilogy when the characters are different people to who they were in the first book, and when a satisfying ending isn't always synonymous with a happy one. This is a seriously underrated series, so if you're interested in witches, sister relationships, powerful women (literally!), historical or romance, this is definitely worth checking out!

What really lessened my enjoyment was the rubbish heroine, she wasn't likeable or endearing in any way… But that seems to be the case for most YA heroines. -Cate was uninteresting and insufferable, her narration really let the book down. She spent most of her time feeling sorry for herself and banging on about Finn… I loathe heroines who waste time moaning about some guy instead of concentrating on the million other more important things going on around them. I was bored of her acting so hard done by and going around preaching/lecturing as if she was some sort of good person. She didn't come across as a decent person to me, the fact that every character thought she was so amazing and saint-like only made her more loathsome. Cate's number one priority was her love life, I didn't once think that she actually gave a damn about her two younger sisters or the other girls in the sisterhood, she just went through the motions of pretending to care but all she was really bothered about was Finn. Also, her whole 'I'm-not-pretty-and-woe-is-me' attitude made her even more insufferable… She kept going on about her sisters being more beautiful than her when they were clearly all beautiful in different ways. The silly cow probably only put herself down so other people would compliment her. Ugh. -Cate was such a horrible sister, she promised her dying mother that she'd look after her younger sisters but she broke that promise for a guy, her sisters should have come first. She treated Maura like absolute rubbish. Yes, Maura did a bad thing when she erased Finn's memory but she didn't do it because she was evil, she did out of childish jealousy and because Inez manipulated her. Did Cate try to help Maura in any way? No, she just provoked her and made her feel like crap. She was meant to be the older, wiser sister… she should have tried to understand Maura and protect her, instead she basically disowned and left her in the clutches of a crazy bitch. If she was a decent sister she shouldn't have abandoned her, made her feel like rubbish, sulked and bitched at her and chose a boy over her. Cate was the worst, she didn't deserve a happy ending after letting her troubled younger sister down so much. -Tess was a lot less likeable in this one, she was quite irritating actually, she was too shouty and reckless for my liking. Her insistence that she wasn't a child just made her even more annoying. She was still better than Cate though. -It was obvious that Maura was going to die, I would have preferred a twist or something rather than her being punished with death because of the questionable things she did. I found her far more sympathetic, likeable and interesting than Cate or Tess, the poor cow was just desperate for someone to love and respect her. -I guess Finn was an okay-ish character, him losing his memory made him come across as kind of flat though. It also made his relationship with Cate seem lukewarm, which shouldn't be the case in the third book of a series. The whole memory loss thing just didn't work for his character or his relationship with Cate. -One thing I really liked was Cate not being the chosen one. She was already a speshul little snowflake, her being the prophesied sister would have made her even more insufferable. -I wasn't impressed with the setting, it read like a weird combination of America and England… I would have liked either one or another, not a strange mix of both. All in all, better than a lot of YA I've read recently, but still a rather mediocre read overall.

    EDITED 08/22/14: Oh why oh why was there so little of Finn here? Nevertheless, this book was epic. I liked Cate more in this book than the past two. She grew up and was able to decide for herself. I want an epilogue though. Can't we have one? EDITED 09/10/13: OMG! The cover!!! I love it! Jessica, I do like the other title, Thrice Fated. I love consistency. Nonetheless, I can't wait for this. :) _____________________________ I know this book's going to have an EPIC finale.

THE WORLD: The story is set in old times New England when women were supposed to stay home and look after children and the men be the providers. It is also the time when religious Brotherhood is ruling and witches are being killed or locked in insane asylum. In the third book the world gets even worse for the women because they are forbidden to do any kind of work and provide for the family, their place is at home and at home only. CHARACTERS: Cate is the main character of the series. She is the oldest Cahill sister and a powerful witch. Now, Cate has a very impressive self control and always thinks about other first. Under normal circumstances I dislike such characters but not in this book. I loved Cate since book one and she stayed my favorite character till the end. Maura is the middle sister and what you call a pain in the ass. She is extremely jealous of Cate but somehow where in the second book my hate for Maura was boiling, in this book she was not as much present and therefore I managed to control my emotions. I liked the ending tho, it fit Maura very well. And finally we have Tess who is the youngest sister and the most powerful one. I must admit, where in the first and second book Tess was super cute curious little side character, in this book she gets super whinny and annoying. I just did not like her anymore. She was too much for me, just too much. But the one thing that makes this series special is Finn...oh my that man. I was so sad for Cate after what Maura did but I never doubted Finn...I just had that feeling that he is worth all of it. LOVE: In the first book we get pretty clear romance going on but in the second one it gets shaken and now in the third one things slowly get back where they belong. It was lovely, I think from romance perspective third book was my favorite. PLUS: I really loved how Jessica Spotswood changed her direction and made this book much better than the second one. MINUS: I am still a little bit confused about Inez and what was her plan really or what she really did. I mean I get the ending is what it is supposed to be but why how and what I am still missing answers to. IDEA: The thing is, I know many people love this series for it is strong feminism and sisters love. But I must admit, even tho feminism itself was alright I did not see any strong sisters love in this book. Just because Maura did what she did in the end does not make all what she did to Cate alright. When I think about strong sisters love I do not think of jealousy, betrayal or pure hate. I just do not see it. OVERALL: It was a great series about witches but I must admit, some people stop with book one and I don't blame them. Many times while reading the second book I wished I stopped myself but that need to finish what I start got me through. In the end, I am not sure if the ending was really worth going all through the pain of the second book. MORE? MORE! @ P.S. I love that book!

    The whole series was incredible but this ending is one of the most satisfying endings ever. I wouldn't change a thing because it's got the perfect mix of action, love, heartbreak and plot twists. Lots of tears at the end because Jessica Spotswood's writing is just phenomenal. I just wish to read about these characters forever but this was the perfect conclusion. A series I'll cherish forever surely. The whole series was incredible but this ending is one of the most satisfying endings ever.

It was a story that I remember and loved so much that I had to follow it. I did. I’m sad to see this series end. Plot: This story follows what has develop from the first book so if you have not read the books you should. The plot immediately pulls the reader in with a sense of sadness. Much has changed between the sisters even going to far as taking away a loved one. The sisters are having trouble balancing what they want to what they need. They keep fighting, keeping secrets, not to mention with the nonsense the brotherhood is spreading as well as the fever, the sisters find themselves in much trouble. While reading this story I had no problem envisioning the city, the people as well the emotions flowing through the book. Friendship/Sisters/Love: This area gets very complicated very fast. Though much has been taken away there is much to fight for. I wanted the sisters to reunite and work together. For much of the book they were at odds with each other only thinking of themselves. The love interest was too scrambled to bits so as you can imagine my heart was beating pretty fast. As the plot continues, things began to piece together. Ending: The ending is not what I expected. I thought the sisters would make up and be together instead I was left with,”What just happen?!” Don’t get me wrong the ending is quite good. It kept me at the edge of my seat. Although I wish it could be different, their choices are their own. I love this ending. It fits the story just right tying up all loose ends. I’m glad that I got to read the story from start to finish. I certainly enjoyed the series and can’t way to read more by this author.

I try not to give spoilers but...this is the last book so it is pretty hard not to give something away. If I do apologize!! My Thoughts: Cate has really stepped into her shoes, so to speak. She has come into her own as a woman, as a witch, and as a sister. We have watched this character grow throughout the series to turn into a very powerful and interesting person. In fact, each sister has contributed to this series in some big and small way to shape it into a fine historical fiction and exciting magical novel. I wasn't really feeling this cover picture. I just felt it lacked something. I am not sure what, and the model is beautiful but I don't know if that is what I pictured Cate to be like. Of course, this doesn't take away from the novel at all. I was just not into this cover picture. But the overall plot did deliver very well. There are a few twists and turns that I wasn't expecting but for the most part everything fell into place of how the plot was going in the first two books. We lose some characters I wasn't expecting to and gained a few allies that I was hoping for. The conflicts between the sisters and Maura comes to a final battle in this story and we are shocked by the turnout. I feel guilty for the way I felt about Maura even though she deserved it and yet I feel like she may have redeemed herself as well. I would have liked for more to happen between the sisters as allies before the ending but again, I understand the way it played out too. Besides, when it comes to series finales I think we will always find something we wanted more just because we really don't want it to end. Remember how there is always two sides to every story? Well, I really love how our author does that. She shows us that even though the Brothers are the worst people in charge, some of the extreme thoughts of the witches aren't the greatest idea either. Mrs. Spotswood, instead, details one extreme to the next showing us that it is always better to find a compromise or meeting ground. Another point that I loved about the third book is that there is some revolutionary thinking ( for this time period anyways) where we find the women and men coming together to argue points about breaking away from those in charge. Besides being a paranormal romance novel, Sisters Fate is truly a great historical novel giving us a look into how women were treated back in this time period. Yes, witches were feared and hated but girls and women were treated terribly too. It is a great novel for someone looking for a magical story but is a very rousting historical fiction. All in all, I was pretty satisfied with how Sisters' Fate ended the series. There were some things I would have liked to see more of and characters I didn't want to lose but overall the story was carried through very well. I believe we were given what we needed and that is the most important part of a story. Getting what I needed from it not just what I wanted or wished for. It was a wonderful series and I look forward to anything else that Mrs. Spotswood will bring us in the future!

    It took me a while to actually get around to reading this, in comparison to the time it took between reading Born Wicked and Star Cursed. I couldn't get it at first, because I need to use the Amazon UK (there's no Irish Amazon sadface) and I had to wait till it was available and it obviously wasn't in the library like the other two cause it was just after being published.

I couldn't get it at first, because I need to use the Amazon UK (there's no Irish Amazon sadface) and I had to wait till it was available and it obviously wasn't in the library like the other two cause it was just after being published. Anywho, I think Star Cursed ended on an EXCELLENT cliff-hanger. What the hell was going to happen between Cate and Maura? Maura had literally broken her sister's heart on purpose. And when it comes to Maura, I don't believe the whole "It's safer for him, and you." She ain't doing nothing in the good interests of Cate. One of the best and steady things in this trilogy has been Maura's character, she was never a character easily liked and she was easy to dislike. She never did anything extraordinarily bad in the first two, but there was something about her, you just knew she was capable..which she then proved by removing Finn's memory. (view spoiler)[I always knew that Maura would be the one to die, however I was surprised that Tell allowed herself to get mind-controlled but more on Tess later. I was expecting Cate to have to use her healing powers to kill Maura but surprisingly she didn't which is maybe just as well. I know it's natural for them all to remember Maura as cheerful and rambunctious, but I think we need to remember that she still allowed some bad things to happen, despite redeeming herself all of a sudden. Plus, hello, she told Inez about Tess. Never okay (hide spoiler)] I almost expected there to be a love triangle when Cate met Alaistair Merriweather and for this trilogy to follow in the awful footsteps of so many before so I can say I'm really glad it didn't. Finn and Cate's romance was always super cute and strong, and I'm so glad they slowly started to fall back in love. It shows they were meant to be. Sigh. The ending of the book was unexpected, in that there wasn't an overall change but a more realistic one in the Brothers who felt what they had been doing was wrong finally stood up for the innocent. Great to see the bullies get their comeuppance. While this wasn't my favourite of the Cahill Witch Chronicles overall, it was still pretty damn good and despite everything, kept me guessing. So it got my rare five stars.

    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.

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. Would you like to see more of Tess? -- Originally posted on LeisureReads.com

    Why you should read it: This is the final Cahill Witch Chronicle and I'm going to miss the sisters. I love that this isn't set in modern-day times. It gives readers a unique and fun aspect of the series. Cate Cahill is such a great heroine. I feel for her and almost cried when Finn "forgot" her. I hated Maura but wanted her to stop being so devious and start working on her relationship with Cat and Tess. For those of you who haven't picked up Born Wicked, YOU MUST!

I hated Maura but wanted her to stop being so devious and start working on her relationship with Cat and Tess. For those of you who haven't picked up Born Wicked, YOU MUST! Cat doesn't think she can do anything to circumvent the prophecy that one of the Cahill sisters will kill another … but she sure as heck tries. There's also the cure the Brotherhood is hoarding, and Tess becomes increasingly distant as she tries to stand on her own. There's so much going on and Jessica weaves each plotlet so perfectly. I plan on downloading the audiobooks post-haste! Head over to the HEA Blog to see what Jessica has to say about SF and Cate! http://www.usatoday.com/story/happyev...

    Such a beautiful ending. Yes, there were heartbreaks and loss, (view spoiler)[ One of them is that I knew I said that nothing beats Maura being a total b*itch, and I actually wanted her to die right then and there, but it still broke my heart that she died. (hide spoiler)] but there were also the strong bonds, loyalty, romance, and the prospect of new beginnings. Not only for the life of the witches, but also for Cate and Finn. It was really great and just... Oh, the feels! Such a beautiful ending.

    Very well done. Loved the ending and how it wrapped everything up. One of my favorite YA trilogies out there right now! Not sure if I'll be posting a full review soon or closer to the release date. Either way, just know that I LOVED this book. Very well done. Loved the ending and how it wrapped everything up.

    This is the third book in a trilogy. Though it takes place in an alternate 1890s New England, it's very relevant to this time: bullies, overt misogynists chipping away at women's rights, and even fake news. It's also quite a bumpy emotional ride. This is the third book in a trilogy.
