Summary (from Goodreads):
When her widowed father dumps 16-year-old Katy Jessevar in a boarding school in Whitfield, Massachusetts, she has no idea that fate has just opened the door to both her future and her past. Nearly everyone in Whitfield is a witch, as is Katy herself, although she has struggled all her life to hide her unusual talents. Stuck at a boarding school where her fellow students seem to despise her, Katy soon discovers that Whitfield is the place where her mother committed suicide under mysterious circumstances when Katy was just a small child. With dark forces converging on Whitfield, it's up to Katy to unravel her family's many secrets to save the boy she loves and the town itself from destruction.

This book was amazing.  I couldn't put it down. Although the plot seemed standard, I loved her version of it. By infusing the wiccan ways into it, it made it so much more exciting and suspensful.  Even if you aren't into reading about fictional witches, the underlying general meaning can be compariable to any life situation.  Even though there is magick in this book, remove it and your left with a family, love, and friendship.  The Darkness can be comparted to all wrong doing humanity has done, is doing, and will continue to do.  Silently waiting in the shadows to trap another into it's deceitful web. 

The characters were excellent.  You got see a glimpse of all their lives and who they are.  Even with the, intended I'm sure, secrecy of Peter, giving doubt to whether he was the bad guy or not, it gave it that spark of suspens and almost dreading that sweet Peter might actually be the bad guy.

I almost thought that there wasn't going to be a sequel.  It was a complete story, until the very end. I was extremely happy to know I would be getting more of Katy, Peter and all of Whitfield.  The only thing that I didn't like was how rushed it seemed in the beginning.  It almost seems as if you were thrown into the middle of an action scene and got caught up in it.
