I didn't like it as I much as I wanted when I first picked it up, but it was indeed enjoyable. ( )

I absolutely loved this book. I’m usually not a fan of period pieces as they tend to drag on and be boring but the way this book was written I was sucked in from the first page. The attention to detail and the way the author described each character really brought the book alive. This is a great coming of age/witchcraft novel and it’s part of a series that makes it even better! ( )

This book made me cry my eyes out. The ending was just so wrong and now I cannot help but read the other books too. This is the first book that made me cry since like Harry Potter so it was a achievement that way too. I liked this book even though it was scary and very dark. The beginning was kinda slow so at first I thought I wouldn't be able to even finish this book but I'm very glad I did. And now I just have to hunt down the book 2 in the series so I can read more and hope that Cate can marry Finn. IT just has to happen. He is her Edward, I'm just saying! ( )

Cate Cahill is the eldest of three witches. Her mother has died, her father is always absent, and her younger sisters are both difficult to control. Maura and Tess Cahill think magic is something to enjoy, but in a world where magic is illegal and where women are killed just because they are suspected of witchcraft, Cate has her hands full. However, when her father decides that they should get a governess to teach them how to behave like proper ladies, especially seeing as Cate has to find a husband before she turns seventeen, things go awry. Paul, the boy who was once her best friend, comes back to woo her, but Cate has a thing for Finn – the gardener. Unfortunately, with a prophecy that speaks of three witch sisters bringing upon the change that the witch community is so desperate for, she’s quickly being sought out to take the rebellion to a new level. Is there time to think of her own wants and needs? Will she be able to protect her sisters from harm? Can Cate actually be happy? Only time will tell if her choices are the right ones and whether she can live with the consequences…

I found Born Wicked to be an extremely enjoyable read, especially seeing as it’s got a bit of a Jane Austen flair to it. Devouring the book in record time, I simply couldn’t put it down! Jessica Spotswood was able to write a novel that has the twists and turns that a reader craves for when they are turning the pages, yet she has a beautiful way of telling a story too. Though, it may be a coming of age type of novel, Born Wicked definitely places that theme underneath a pile of entertainment.

What I found most intriguing was how Spotswood used the patriarchy concept to convey a feministic message, which even in modern times have its place in society. Born Wicked is very intelligently written, and her characters – easily distinguishable from one another – aren’t the type to sit and wait for things to change. Frankly, I liked this book to quite an extent and I think many other people will enjoy it too.

All the praise aside though, readers from the UK and South Africa will unfortunately not be able to get their hands on the sequel to Born Wicked via Kindle or Nook. Believe me, once you’ve read Born Wicked, you want the second book – Star Cursed – but seeing as the eBook publishing rights for foreign territories are apparently not invoked by publishers (apparently the eBooks will only be available in April 2014), readers will have to wait or buy the paperback. Now, I understand that it’s complicated for publishers to sell these rights, but the original publisher of these books is a BIG publisher for God’s sake. Surely they know they’re going to miss out on a fortune by keeping readers from buying eBooks (or force them to buy the paperback). This type of idiocy from professionals put readers off of a series immediately, and it’s no different for Born Wicked. I liked the book, I wanted to BUY the sequel the moment I was finished reading it, but unfortunately it was not possible… so what do I do now? Do I wait until doomsday when the paperback is available in South Africa (15 July 2013 in SA, according to my research) and spend money on fuel to get to my nearest bookseller, which may or may not even have copies on their shelves – which already makes the price higher for a paperback novel – or do I give up on the series? It’s a question each reader will ask themselves when they’ve finished Born Wicked, and it’s a stupid problem that could have been avoided by the American publishers if they weren’t so uppity about their eBook rights. I get it, you want money, but really, Penguin Books South Africa has an excellent eBook division, and so does the Penguin Books UK. I should know, I review a lot of their stuff.

So, what’s the verdict then? Born Wicked is a fantastic book, there’s no doubt about it, but perhaps it’s better if you wait until you’ve got the sequel in hand, before you start reading it. If you’re anything like me, you’ll want to read it immediately afterwards, and it will be a definite let-down if you can’t…

I enjoyed this more than I thought I would from the bodice-rippy title and cover. And sure, it has strong romance lines, and our heroine does a lot of dithering about boys. But she also faces a lot of struggles with a alterni-history puritanical misogynist society that would condemn her and her sisters as "born wicked". She felt believably out of her depth and yet not too passive or reactive. Plus, the book has a nice historical feel that never gets in the way, and a refreshingly multi-cultural society. ( )
