Jessica Spotswood - Born ​Wicked
Cate ​Cahill and her sisters are considered eccentric bluestockings—a little odd, a little unfashionable, and far too educated for their own good. The truth is more complicated; they’re witches. And if their secret is discovered by the priests of the Brotherhood, it could mean an asylum, a prison ship—or an early grave. Before their mother died, she entrusted Cate with keeping them safe and keeping everyone, including their father, in the dark about their powers. When her father employs a governess and Cate begins to receive notes from her missing, presumed-mad godmother, her task becomes much more difficult. As Cate searches for answers in banned books and rebellious new friends, she must juggle unwanted proposals, tea parties, and an illicit attraction to the new gardener. Cate will do anything to protect her sisters, but at what cost to herself?

Jessica Spotswood - Wild ​Swans
The ​summer before Ivy’s senior year is going to be golden; all bonfires, barbeques, and spending time with her best friends. For once, she will just get to be. No summer classes, none of Granddad’s intense expectations to live up to the family name. For generations, the Milbourn women have lead extraordinary lives—and died young and tragically. Granddad calls it a legacy, but Ivy considers it a curse. Why else would her mother have run off and abandoned her as a child? But when her mother unexpectedly returns home with two young daughters in tow, all of the stories Ivy wove to protect her heart start to unravel. The very people she once trusted now speak in lies. And all of Ivy’s ambition and determination cannot defend her against the secrets of the Milbourn past….

Jessica Spotswood - Schicksalsschwestern
Ein ​Fieber wütet in New London. Doch da allen Hexen die sofortige Hinrichtung droht, ist die Schwesternschaft machtlos gegen die Krankheit. Cate hat sich bereits durch ihre Magie verraten und gilt nun als die meistgesuchte Hexe in ganz Neuengland. Schwerer wiegt für sie jedoch der Verlust ihres geliebten Finn, dessen Gedächtnis gelöscht wurde, sodass er sich nun nicht mehr an ihre einstige Liebe erinnern kann. Und die Visionen, die Cates kleine Schwester Tess immer häufiger heimsuchen, lassen keinen Zweifel daran, dass sich die unheilvolle Prophezeiung erfüllen wird. Cates, Tess‘ und Mauras vorherbestimmtes Schicksal scheint nicht aufzuhalten zu sein: Eine Schwester wird die andere vor Beginn des neuen Jahrhunderts töten … "Eine Geschichte, so fesselnd und bezaubernd, dass man hofft, sie möge niemals enden." Andrea Cremer, New-York-Times-Bestseller-Autorin der Serie Nightshade

Cate ​und ihre Schwestern Maura und Tess sind Hexen. Niemand darf davon erfahren, denn Hexen drohen Verbannung und Tod. Die Gefahr, aufzufliegen, lastet schwer auf Cate. Vor allem seit Finn aufgetaucht ist, dieser Junge mit den Zimtsommersprossen und dem kupferroten zerzausten Haar. Verzweifelt sucht Cate nach einem Ausweg und stößt im Tagebuch ihrer toten Mutter auf eine rätselhafte Prophezeiung, die besagt, dass drei Schwestern mit magischen Kräften die Hexen zurück an die Macht führen werden. Handelt es sich dabei um Cate, Maura und Tess? Und kann es überhaupt eine gemeinsame Zukunft für Cate und Finn geben?

Jessica Spotswood - Star ​Cursed
With ​the Brotherhood persecuting witches like never before, a divided Sisterhood desperately needs Cate to come into her Prophesied powers. And after Cate's friend Sachi is arrested for using magic, a war-thirsty Sister offers to help her find answers—if Cate is willing to endanger everyone she loves. Cate doesn't want to be a weapon, and she doesn't want to involve her friends and Finn in the Sisterhood's schemes. But when Maura and Tess join the Sisterhood, Maura makes it clear that she'll do whatever it takes to lead the witches to victory. Even if it means sacrifices. Even if it means overthrowing Cate. Even if it means all-out war. In the highly anticipated sequel to Born Wicked, the Cahill Witch Chronicles continue Cate, Maura and Tess's quest to find love, protect family, and explore their magic against all odds in an alternate history of New England.
