The exhilaratingly seductive new series from the author of the bestselling Starcrossed seriesLove burns. Worlds collide. Magic reigns.This world is trying to kill Lily Proctor. Her life-threatening allergies keep her from enjoying many of the experiences that other teenagers take for granted...which is why she is determined to enjoy her first (and perhaps only) high-school party. But Lily's life never goes according to plan, and after a humiliating incident in front of half her graduating class Lily wishes she could just disappear. Suddenly Lily is in a different Salem - one overrun with horrifying creatures and ruled by powerful women called Crucibles. Strongest and cruellest of all the Crucibles is Lillian . . . Lily's identical other self in this alternate universe. This new version of her world is terrifyingly sensual, and Lily is soon overwhelmed by new experiences. Lily realizes that what makes her weak at home is exactly what makes her extraordinary in New Salem. It also puts her life in danger. Thrown into a world she doesn't understand, Lily is torn between responsibilities she can't hope to shoulder alone, and a love she never expected. But how can Lily be the saviour of this world when she is literally her own worst enemy?

The blurb on the back makes it sounds like a pretty good plot. It says nothing about the badly written crap that goes on inside.There are a lot of...
Sigh.I don't even know what to say. I absolutely loved Starcrossed and this book was just a mess. Angelini knows how to slowly reveal the plot in her books and instead in this one we had way too much going on with no time to really absorb anything and mashup of steampunk and I think Native American ...
My rating on this book went between "I'm annoyed and don't like this" and "this is awesome!", hence the settling at a three. It was a very hard book to rate, and this is probably going to be a very hard review to write. The problem I had was that there was an amazing and fascinating world set up, ...
Parallel universes. Magic vs. Science. Tyranny of Witches vs. Toxic Fallout. Then, there's some young love and angst.
