As Cassie's heart is tested once more, she is forced to finally choose between Nick and Adam, and she faces the ultimate test of her power in this gripping showdown between good and evil.
It was a cool, purple night, and the candles continued to burn , flickering orange and yellow against the cave walls. But the hunters no longer mumbled their soft chant. Their hardened bodies littered the ground, with their faces frozen in a soundless eternal scream.
The smell of death was thick in the air. As Cassie breathed it in, her mouth filled with the heady, metallic taste of guilt. Give us the book, dear one, he said. Or die.
Diana curled her fingers and twitched. Better yet, she said, give us the book and then die. She tried to back away, but she found herself pinned against the rocky wall of the cave. There was nowhere to run. Melanie reached out and grabbed Cassie by the neck. Cassie looked around her dark bedroom, confused about where she was.
The truth gradually snaked itself around her guts. That evening at the caves, after performing the curse that destroyed the witch-hunters, the boy she loved and all her closest friends had turned into monsters before her eyes.
The truth of it pierced her chest like a slick blade and remained there, stuck—there was no release. The alarm clock on her nightstand told her it was almost morning, but the sky through her window was clouded over in charcoal gray.
A storm must be coming. She rested it upon her lap and stared at its aged cover. It looked like any old book, but she knew the power contained in its pages.
Because it was a part of her now, and she was a part of it—for better or worse. A crack of thunder caused Cassie to flinch. Then the sky opened, unleashing a violent rain against the glass of her windows. She blushed at her own jumpiness. Her spell had trapped her friends in the cave, Cassie reminded herself, so at least for now, she was safe. Determined was more like it. Cassie awoke for the second time that morning to a room that was sunny and bright.
She climbed out of bed, thankful the storm had passed, and went to her window to greet the ocean. Admiring the way it rolled and sparkled never ceased to calm her—but today the beach struck her as lonesome, abandoned. No person could be seen for miles. Cassie dressed quickly and went downstairs to find her mom making enough pancakes to feed an army. Everything, Cassie said. Cassie picked a pancake from the top of a pile, rolled it in her hands, and bit into it like a piece of licorice. Sitting down at the kitchen table, she tried to figure out the best way to explain the events of last night to her mother.
But there was no best way. She just had to come out with it straight: The hunters died, Cassie said, still hardly able to believe it herself. She pitched forward, ignoring the pancake currently sizzling and smoking in the pan, and motioned Cassie to continue. Now the whole Circle is possessed. I told you to leave that book alone. She turned off the stove and abandoned her pancake batter, then reached for a dish towel and wiped off her hands.
She was quiet for a few seconds, twisting the towel sorrowfully in her fingers. Her long dark hair framed her face like a shroud. Possession is serious, Cassie. On the mainland.
In Concord. He used to live in New Salem a long time ago. Who is he? As far as Cassie knew, her mother had broken ties with everyone from her past days in New Salem. Last I heard, he was the head librarian at a research institute that specializes in the occult. Her mother began cleaning up—something she always did when she was ill at ease.
He may know something. Exorcism , Cassie thought. Just the word brought a shiver to her spine. She imagined heads whirling around like spinning tops, projectile vomiting.
Was that what was in store for the people she loved most? Not a priest or anything like that. His name is Timothy Dent. She focused on the task of collecting the broken eggshells from the countertop and dropping them into the trash. We should go see him right away. Have a little more to eat. Her mother placed a plate of pancakes and a bottle of maple syrup on the table in front of Cassie and handed her a fork and knife. Why was her mother so tight-lipped about this man they were going to see?
Her stomach felt too queasy for biscotti. Once inside the shop, she inhaled a deep breath of coffee-scented air and tried to steer her feelings toward hope. The Cup was crowded as usual, which gave her a few minutes to collect herself. She observed the line of people waiting at the counter: Then Cassie spotted broad shoulders beneath a black T-shirt that she recognized instantly—Max.
Her breath caught in her throat. Cassie knew she would never be able to forget the way Max passed his eyes over each member of the Circle as his father breathed his last breath in his arms. As if sensing her gaze, Max turned around and locked eyes with Cassie. He froze, his face reddened, and then he quickly ducked off line and headed for the exit.
Max, wait, Cassie called out, chasing after him without knowing what she would actually say if she caught him. Max stormed through the bodies obstructing his way toward the door, trying to make a quick escape. In his haste, he bumped into a double-seat baby carriage. It was just the holdup Cassie needed. She reached out and caught him by the bicep.
He aggressively shook off her hold, drawing the attention of everyone on line. I know that. Cassie took a step back and lowered her voice to a whisper. The whole coffee shop seemed to fall silent. None of us knew that was going to happen. Max scowled and looked away.
