Review Detail4.2 106
Before reading this book, I thought historical fiction was the most boring genre ever! I only read this because my friend forced me to, but I am very thankful that she did, because otherwise I would have missed out on a great book. The story is captivating and beautifully written and the main character Gemma and her three close friends at Spence Academy form a great quartet. Each one of them has their own faults and it is these faults that create the strong friendship between them. The book is not only about friendship, though, but about the Order, an old group of sorceresses, and the connection that Gemma may have with them. The book is suspenseful until the very end and is never the least bit boring.
