Format: Paperback
I've been reading this series for quite a while, and I couldn't wait to find out what happened in this book. The story takes a major twist when Kate, Annie, and Cooper all recieve their final assignment. To solve their challenge. None of the firls get their challenges at first, but they all seem to receive the answers in different places. Annie and Cooper, in New Orleans, while visiting Annie's new-found sister. Kate, back at home, while going through a very hard moment. When the girls present their answers at the last class, they're all sure their going to be witches together. But then a major twist comes a long. A twist that could ruin their friendship, ruin their Wiccan bond, and destroy their circle of three. What's going to happen? I guess we'll all just have to wait until #15 comes out later this month.

This is one of the best from the series. I liked how it told about the individual challenges of Kate, Annie, and Cooper. You got to see how they felt about possibly being initiated into Wicca. But the end really surprised me, which is why I can't wait until the next one comes out.

This book was absolutely fantastic! If you like this series, you'll definately be up thinking about the twist ending long after you finished reading the actual book! This book starts with Kate, Cooper, and Annie's final challenges. They are asked to pull a sheet of paper out of the box and complete the challenge on it. Based on how well they complete their challenges decides whether or not they will be invited to the initation. In other happening, Annie and Cooper go to New Orleans, while Kate stays behind working on her make-up science project with the unbearable Sherrie. When Annie and Cooper get back they are all prepared for their final class at Crones Circle. Cooper is extremely confident they will all be witches next year and their circle will not be broken. After presenting their challenges and how they completed or had not completed them they are asked one at a time to proceed into the back room where Archer will tell them whether or not they are asked to the initation. As Cooper, Annie, and Kate walk in confident they will become witches together, they are faced with the cruel reality that one in their circle might not be ready to be a witch.

Format: Paperback
As the second to last book in the "Circle of Three" series, our three witches-in-training are on the last leg before their initiation. Kate, Annie and Cooper have nearly completed the year-and-a-day of study in the field of modern witchcraft, and now only one last challenge awaits them: the aptly named Challenge Box.

The Box is filled with a number of paper slips, each with a task on it that the girls are required to complete - without telling the others what their individual task is. They have two weeks to understand and complete their challenges before reporting back to the study group - and the speculation of the coven. If Sophia, Archer and the other leaders decide their tasks are completed then they will be prepared for initiation. If not, then they will have to continue their studies indefinitely.

Each girl tackles the problems by themselves. Kate's task is to "Answer the question that has no answer." Utterly baffled by this, Kate is further upset when her parents forbid her in accompanying Annie and Cooper on their holiday to New Orleans. Instead she must work on fixing up her failing grade in her science class. After a confrontation with her nemesis Sherrie left her with a fail, Kate is given a second chance to make it up. At the same time, she's found herself on the last stage of convincing her parents that her involvement in Wicca is an unchangeable component of her life - but maybe in this conflict is the key to solving her challenge.

Meanwhile, Annie is grappling with her challenge: "Give away your most precious possession." Realising that it probably doesn't mean material possessions, Annie puzzles over the challenge on her way to New Orleans, where she is meeting her elder sister for the first time.

Format: Paperback
The challenge box is a strange thing. It's a small box filled with slips of paper which have certain challenges written onto it that Kate, Cooper, and Annie have to take in order to become initiated. Each of them has a challenge but it may be harder to complete than they ever imagined. Kate find herself plagues with questions that challenge her faith and beliefs. She wants to become a witch but is she ready? She's faced with another challenge when she's forced to work on yet another project with Sherrie, the girls she despises the most. Annie has finally meet her older sister in New Orleans and she and Cooper are immersed in the rich culture of New Orleans. But there's a question in the back of Annie's mind. Will he sister accept her if she knew she was Wiccan? And Cooper finds herself facing many things that she's uncomfortable or afraid of. Will she have the courage to face her greatest fear?
It's sad to see that such a great series is going to be over after I finish up the next book. But as they say all good things come to an end. The Challenge Box was yet another entertaining story about the three girls facing tough questions and making hard decisions about life. And the ending is quite a shocker too. I agree with whoever said it was a cruel place to leave us fans but it was quite an ending. Everyone who has been a fan of this series should read this book. I have the 15th and final book. Initiation, in my room waiting too be read.
