Description de l'ouvrage

21 août 2012 The Secret Circle

The circle's power has lured her home

Forced to move from sunny California to gloomy New England, Cassie longs for her old life. Even so, she feels a strange kinship to a terrifying group of teens who seem to rule her school. Initiated into the coven of witches that's controlled New Salem for hundreds of years, she's drawn into the Secret Circle, a thrill that's both intoxicating and deadly. But when she falls for the mysterious and intriguing Adam, Cassie must choose whether to resist temptation or risk dark forces to get what she wants—even if it means that one wrong move could ultimately destroy her.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Secret Circle ou la sorcellerie à New Salem 9 janvier 2010
Par Lothfleur VOIX VINE
Format:Broché
L'histoire est passionnante, elle nous prend par le coeur tout autant que par la curiosité car on se retrouve face à un monde inconnu mais extrêmement tentant, celui des sorcières, et parce que Cassie a rencontré un mystérieux garçon, poursuivit par une bande armée, avec qui elle ressent une connexion pas comme les autres : elle voit un lien entre eux. Malheureusement, Cassie doit déménager dans la ville de New Salem alors ses espoirs de le revoir risquent d'être un peu vain, mais c'est sans compter sur l'historique étrange de la ville...
Bon, côté originalité, si vous avez déjà lu le Night World, vous allez trouver que certaines choses sont très ressemblantes car les sorcières se comportent de façon similaire, et que l'on parle d'un lien d'argent reliant deux êtres dans les deux sagas.
Mais la ressemblance s'arrête là car The Secret Circle est beaucoup plus développé côté magie, beaucoup plus développé en général puisqu'on a le droit à trois tomes sur une même histoire : on explore beaucoup plus en profondeur les personnages, le monde en général, ce qui rend le livre un peu addictif.
Mais le découpage des livres laisse à désirer puisqu'on finit le premier livre au milieu du second tome de la trilogie alors mieux vaut acheter les deux rééditions en même temps sinon vous risquez de rester sur votre faim.

Format:Broché
J'ai adoré ce livre. J'ai connu cette trilogie grâce à la série télévisée. Et je me suis aperçu que si j'appréciais énormément la série, j'ai carrément adoré les livres. J'en suis tombée follement amoureuse. Il est vrai que le livre m'a paru un peu lent au début et que la première partie n'est pas très mouvementée. Mais cette petite attente en valait la peine! Le livre grouille de fourmillants détails. C'est un livre très divertissant, avec lequel on peut vite devenir accro. Je le recommande très fortement!!!!

L. J. Smith exceeds herself with the reissue of THE SECRET CIRCLE.

Though some of her older books, especially THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, are a delight to read, THE SECRET CIRCLE is leagues ahead in not only writing skill but in plot and characterization, as well.

The main character, Cassie (who coincidentally shares a first name with this reviewer), is likeable and easy to relate to as a plain, shy, sixteen-year-old girl.

After moving to New Salem to live with her mother and estranged grandmother, Cassie finds herself included in her new school's intimidating secret club. Once she is initiated as a witch, Cassie soon finds out that the beautiful boy she fell in love with over the summer is part of the coven, too.

Cassie must sacrifice true love in order to protect her adopted "sister," Diana, but what else will she have to sacrifice? And what does the club's rebel member, Faye, have to do with the cursed crystal skull and the mysterious deaths in New Salem?

Ending with a breathtaking cliffhanger, L. J. Smith's THE SECRET CIRCLE will leave you begging for more.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Sympathique, mais on reste sur sa faim... 16 janvier 2011

Ce roman se lit plutôt bien, voir même tout seul, mais j'ai un léger goût d'inachevé...
Je le juge peut-être un peu trop "ado" pour moi... (32 ans et lectrice de romans d'ados en anglais pour faire progresser mon niveau.)
En revanche, le sujet de la sorcellerie était une première pour moi (après les mercedes thompson, les house of night...) donc finalement plutôt reposant ! Tout un nouveau vocabulaire à ma portée ! Yes !!

Conseil : acheter les 2 livres réédités d'un coup, car il s'agit bien de 3 tomes, réédités en 2 livres = s'arrêter en plein milieu du tome 2 (au terme du 1er livre), c'est un peu moyen...

Conclusion : le roman sera super si vous n'avez pas plus de 18-20 ans...

Ah, The Secret Circle. Quite simply, I adore these books. I'm absolutely thrilled that they're being re-released, as my old copies are now quite creased and have started to fall apart. I finally get to replace them! Though I'll never throw the originals away, mostly because I would feel like that was sacrilege, but also because I don't like these new covers nearly as much as the old ones.

Yes, these books are THAT good. I first read them as a young teenager, because my sister and I were both big fans of Smith's Vampire Diaries saga. At first we were both confused, because we thought these TSC would be about vampires, too. We quickly decided that witches were just as much fun to read about as vampires!

(very minor spoilers below, beware)

The heroine of this trilogy is Cassie Blake, and she is a character that every girl reading the books will both relate to and admire. As a younger reader, I remember feeling really elated by this, because if I was even a little bit like Cassie, I must be a better person than my teenage mind gave me credit for. And I think that new readers will come to the same realization.

As the story starts, Cassie is fairly ordinary, or at least she sees herself that way. She's average looking and fairly shy. She doesn't stand up for herself, and she's easily intimidated. Smith never writes her as a COWARD, though, just as a timid, typical teenage girl who desperately longs to fit in with her peers. When she first sees Diana (who later becomes her best friend), she assumes that Diana is out of her league because Diana is beautiful. A very realistic reaction, in my opinion, and one I had many times in high school.

As the books progress, so does Cassie. She slowly begins to realize her own potential without compromising who she was in the very first chapter. She's a character who follows her heart and tries to do what she really believes is right. She makes mistakes, definitely, and is far from perfect, but even when she deliberately does the wrong thing, she feels guilty about it and tries to clean up whatever messes she helped cause. When forced to choose, she almost always chooses her family and friends over her own wants. I think she's a fantastic role model for tween readers (and adult readers, too, come to think).

All of Smith's characters are very richly developed. Diana, the beautiful best friend, seems absolutely perfect at first. She's eternally kind and loving and generous and innocent. But it becomes clear that she's also TOO naive at times, TOO trusting. Faye, who is the anti-Diana, isn't as bad as she is initially portrayed. Her selfish/nasty aspects don't go away (which would be unrealistic and less fun), but her more redeeming qualities are brought to light the more the reader and Cassie get to know her.

This story is exciting and interesting. At its core, it's about Cassie discovering who she is. It just so happens that she's from a long line of witches. At the time when I first read The Initiation and The Captive, I had never read a story quite like it. I realize now that the YA market is full of supernatural paperbacks, so I don't know if that will still be true for new readers. Witchcraft, soulmates, magic, a mysterious evil... seems like a lot of books use this recipe now-a-days. But what I think makes Secret Circle (and all of Smith's books, really) stand apart, is how readers really FEEL what the leading character is feeling. Despite all the supernatural aspects, these books seem so genuine and real, because Cassie's thoughts and emotions are so understandable.

L.J. Smith will forever be one of my favorite authors because of this trilogy. It not only has been a personal joy to read and reread, but it has added to the bond that I share with my sister who first introduced me to Smith's books so many years ago. We've often read the books together, so much so that, for her 30th birthday in November, I've recently purchased her a piece of chalcedony carved in the shape of a rose (I'm a total nerd, I realize, but I know she'll immediately understand what it is and that it's my way of saying I love her and miss our childhood days).

To sum up, these books are full of awesome. I can't imagine anyone not enjoying them.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 AWESOME! Could not put it down! 19 janvier 2009

Lucky for me I had the second book ready to go because I read the first book in 1 day. It was so good I kept reaching for it whenever I had a spare moment.
Really this is a great read.
I wish I had read it in the 90's when they were out and I was younger- LOL.
Personally, I feel L.J. Smith's books are better than the Twiglight Series. And they were written before Twilight. Hmmmm...Maybe S.Meyer read L.J Smith when she was younger...

**Make sure you have the second book ready because it is originally a trilogy. So each of the 2 Secret Circle books has 1 1/2 of the original books from the trilogy in them:o)

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Expected to be Better than TV Show... Nope. 29 mai 2012
Par E. White - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I was devastated when the show was canceled after only one season.
So, out of desperation, I decided to buy the two books, but I was sadly let down.
I knew going in that they were COMPLETELY different... but I thought that would be a good thing.
However, the books do not have the same feeling the show had. Fewer emotions, and boring repetition without climax.
*SPOILER* IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN TV SERIES:
*For example, Cassie isn't as deep of a character as she was on the television show. Mostly because he father left when she was a child, and she lives with her alive mother and grandmother. No death here in the first book that hits home to Cassie.

*There are twelve members in a circle, not six.

*Cassie's father was mentioned once, he has no recurring role.

*Far less usage and study of magic. It's mostly how they can make themselves pretty with herbs.

*No believable love connection between Adam and Cassie in book like in the TV series.

*Set on the East Coast, not the west. (Improvement, I thought, from the show).

*Cassie and Diana are described as having opposite looks as they have in the television series.

*TV show had action, romance, and climactic moments that kept you on the edge of your seat, and the book, sadly, kept you waiting for it to get better, but it never quite does.

To end my review, I'm not going to bother reading the two new books that aren't even written by L. J. Smith, since the reviews say that Cassie's character is much more petty and uncaring, since I personally find her fairly unintelligent and petty already in the first two books. This is more of a tween series than a teen series... coming from a seventeen-year-old girl, by the way.
If you do read them, I hope you enjoy, but I was very let down. I guess my hopes were too high. It read like a petty 13-year-old's fanfiction.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Very different from the television show. 17 octobre 2011
Par Fivezenses of Reading - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
The story starts off with meeting young Cassie Blake. She is just fifteen years old and on vacation in Cape Cod for the summer with her mother. She is described of having brunette hair, wavy, and petite too. Over time the read comes to find out that plans change and Cassie is forced to move with her mother to the town of New Salem, Massachusetts for both of them to live with her grandmother, who she has never met till they show up at her front door. The story continues with her meeting students, having a rocky start her first week of school, and learning something peculiar about a group of students; which either half the students are afraid of or worship the group they walk on. But for reasons Cassie has no clue about.

So no more spoiling the book, because it's awesome! For most people, they only know of this because of the show and watched the show instead. But I think for the most part, the show lacks a certain quality that the book has: magic! I'm not talking spells or doing cool things with incantations, but I'm talking that quality that book has that makes you enjoy every second you read the book.

There is something about the way that Cassie meets everyone and how she learns of the "secret". My favorite part was that is was set in Massachusetts. The show doesn't have that. My big complaint about the show. Reason for this is the witch trials happened in Salem Mass. and that reference/story is brought up in the book too. It's one of the huge elements that is played on the last half of the book as well.

I simply enjoyed how there was a part in the beginning when Cassie sees Diana for the first time. She is described as this tall girl, with hair so long and beautifully blonde, "that is woven with the sun and the moon". She is also described as being this unbelievably nice girl and how everyone LOVES her in school. All the girls can't get enough of her and every single guy she passes in the hall asks her out on a date.

Then you have the complete opposite to her: Faye. Faye is a this tall girl too. Dark black hair that is long and raven black. Red fire painted nails and the body of something 'exotic'. She is always wearing clothing that is too sexy for her and doesn't give a care in the world that she goes after the boys that are never single or just flat out a challenge.

Those two characters added such a dynamic, that it was intriguing to know what they were capable of doing to anyone or to each other in their "circle".

This book is a great read for those wanting something deeper than the show can offer, while also knowing maybe how it came about as a book. The one thing I can give away is that in the books that didn't happen on the show: Cassie's mother never died and her father wasn't a witch either. Something I didn't enjoy they doing for the show. Took away too much about the original story at hand.

Anyway, this is something to really check out if you have the time, especially if you haven't seen the show.
