Threatened by the possibility of her destruction in a final battle between good and evil, Cassie must hope that her supernatural gifts are strong enough to obliterate the powers of evil.
If victorious, Cassie will win more than she ever dreamed. But if she and Diana fail, the Power will go to those who seek only to destroy.

I must say that all in all... A good listen. This book lies somewhere between Harry Potter and Twilight I believe in terms of the general progression and genre of the story. It does not have that intense love dynamic of Twilight but not as action packed and dynamic as Harry Potter. The entire novel has the potential (the story line and the world the novel takes place in) had the potential to be much grander and much more enthralling I believe. The reason it falls short though is because the character development, as good as it was, was not great. The main character most certainly grew, into her own as the book progressed but a lot of the happenings, minor characters and the relationships in the book seem a bit rushed. This is one novel that could stand to be 2 books longer to really bring out the full potential of the novel itself.
The narrator grew on me. From the first, to the second and now to the third book, the narrator seemed to grow stronger and better with each book she did or maybe it was that I enjoyed the book more as it progressed. She embodied the full cast very very well I find and really did Cassie well in this.
As I stated above, the story was good, but it could have been great if I didn't think certain aspects of the book or development of the story wasn't rushed over. Certainly a good read, something to pass the time and honestly if the author comes out with another book to this I will listen it. That being said... it isn't particularly an awe inspiring book of epic proportions but simply a good listen. I liked it!
This was one of the better audiobooks.
This was much needed after Volume II
She was very good with the different characters voices.
We did listen in one sitting as we did all the Secret Circle book serious on a cross country trip.
I was quite surprised to find that the tv series is better than the books. Many times a tv series or movie doesn't do justice to the book, but not in this case.
