Summary:

Cassie must confront a shattering challenge: an ordeal that could cost her life or gain her more than she's ever imagined...

Charmed by the Secret Circle, she's initiated into the mysterious "in crowd," a coven of young witches whose power has controlled New Salem for three hundred years.

Hopelessly in love with the coven leader's boyfriend, Cassie risks falling prey to dark powers in order to have him. But if she does, her endless love could destroy the coven, New Salem, and her! (from bn.com)

Meh. This one isn't sounding too intriguing for me. Has anyone read it? I know its been re-released recently. It just doesn't sound like my type of thing.

It's not bad (I own the series), but as for recommending it, it's definitely a borrow-from-the-library book. The story's a little predictable, and the main character is weaker than some of L. J. Smith's other leads. If you love The Vampire Diaries, it might be worth a read-through.

Ooooh, I remember reading these when I was in high school and really liking them. Not sure they'd be my thing now, but I ate them up back then.

I liked the secret Circle books a lot when I was younger. Haven't tried them again lately, but am delighted they are available again!

I read all of LJ Smith's books when I was growing up. Vampire Diaries was my favorite and this series was my second favorite. I re-read them last year and actually ended up enjoying the Secret Circle more than Vampire Diaries. That said I don't think it really compares to the YA books that have come out in recent years.
