Caught in the struggle between good and evil . . .
Cassie has joined the most alluring—and deadly—in-crowd imaginable. But power comes with a price, and it's more dangerous than she knows. Torn between the dueling desires of the two leaders of the Secret Grcle, she must ultimately choose between saving all of New Salem, and her own dangerous love for the bewitching Adam, which threatens to tear the circle apart. In the ultimate battle between good and evil, will Cassie's supernatural powers be strong enough to lead the coven out of danger? Or will she foil prey to the dark forces within?
. . . will she sacrifice her love for the circle to survive?

This is half of the second book and the third book. You need to pick up "The Initiation and The Captive pt 1" to understand what's going on.
The danger in this book forces all of the Circle's members bond and stick together through thick and thin. Half of the time, it was like a horror movie, with me screaming at Cassie' NOT TO OPEN THAT DOOR or NOT TO GO IN THERE ALONE! Of course, Cassie never listened and left me gripping the edge of my seat while she the delves deeper into the world of magic and secrets.
L.J. Smith has done it again! She is a master of creating wonderful characters and tense plots. Her books always leave me wanting more. Bravo!

Review by Samantha
The Secret Circle: The Captive Part 2 and The Power is the 3rd and 4th part of book 2, by L.J. Smith. This book is 416 pages of pure excellence. You travel throughout the story in the mind of Cassie and her struggles to keep herself and the circle alive. They know why everyone is dying in New Salem, but everyone else blames the circle. Black John who has gone by many names before and minds died many time too, is the killer, he twisted people's mind to make the circle the one to blame for everyone else. L.J. Smith has an amazing writing style that keep the reader involved with the story. She uses suspense to keep the reader interested, she uses funny quotes; she makes it so that you think you are in the book and minds of Cassie, Diana, Adam, Faye, Melissa, Deborah, Suzan, Nick, and all the other characters. This book is a made for teenagers and young teenagers because for young adults and adult this book would be too childish and unsatisfactory, plus it deals with young adults who are witches with powers.
A quote that I really like from this book and I think is funny is Cassie: "I guess the fact that you're the most beautiful person I've seen in my entire life doesn't hurt." Diana: "I'm sorry you grow up around such ugly people." This is a good quote because it shows how the author uses her own sense of humor in a way that it doesn't hurt the character and makes the situation funny.
A quote that I did not like was Faye: "Oh and I forgot, we have the dark magic super twins on our side." This quote that the author uses show the sarcastic side of her but I don't like this quote because it also shows a childish side of the characters who are suppose to be in their late teens and not early teen years.
Both of these books are great, LJ smith really satisfies the readers in these and makes everything fall into place in exciting ways. I highly recommend this book
I started watching the show and really understand why it was only one season. They only used they names and the concepts of the story everything else they simply ruin it, sadly!
