Character Interactions I Love

If you haven’t read the books please proceed with caution as this blog post may contain spoilers on all 4 books.

One of the things that drew me into the Secret Circle books were the characters. A coven of 12 very different witches made the books fun and interesting. From Faye’s blackmail, to the Henderson Brothers’ shenanigans, to Sean dressed as a skeleton, to Cassie’s struggle with good versus evil,Black John becoming principal, to the aloofness of Nick and the list goes on.

I am not sure if I can actually pick one character as my favorite, although, there are character interactions that make me love certain characters more. I love the Diana and Faye interactions. I am not a huge Diana fan as Kori said in The Initiation “too much goodness can get boring”, however, I liked her more as the dark versus light played out between cousins when it came to Black John. Diana didn’t get as mad as I would have liked yet she really shone in those scenes especially in the scene after Faye outed Cassie and Adam. That scene was written in a way that you could see that not only Diana was good, she was strong and that’s the thing that LJ Smith does is in pivotal moments throughout the series she showcases a strength or a power within a character that makes me think wow that character is really brave or that character is more sensitive than I thought.

My favorite male/female relationship is (and i know this is going to come as a huge shock to my twitter followers lol) Cassie and Nick. Nick is definitely up there as one of my favorite characters in the series. I mean what woman has not fallen for or had a crush on a bad boy at some point in their life? That’s a huge part of why so many book fans are Nick fans. Not to mention the fact that LJ Smith’s description of him (hello mahogany eyes) makes him so much more appealing.  He’s cold and withdrawn and disappears from the Club quite a bit. He keeps to himself yet he proves to be quite protective and a voice of reason for the Circle and especially for Cassie. Cassie sees a much different side of Nick that the Club does. Even before they interact she notices things about him that it seems like most of the coven members, except for maybe Diana, don’t see or don’t take the time to see. Nick is quite cautious and is dealing with a hurt from the loss of his parents that has defined him for most of his life. Cassie is just broken. She was forced to move to a strange place, realizes the guy she truly does love, Adam, is her best friend’s boyfriend, gets sucked into the Faye blackmail, she loses her Grandmother, her mother becomes catatonic and because of the things that she has done to keep her rondevous with Adam a secret, she herself becomes cold and withdrawn. Throughout this time she has summonsed a strength inside her that she didn’t know she had all the while becoming more drawn to the elusive Nick. From the get go (think back to the Hendersons taking Cassie’s backpack) he protected her in a way. Her kindness coupled with her strength drew Nick to her. Even though he never said it in the books (yet), you can tell that Nick loves Cassie and in my opinion, Cassie wouldn’t be so plagued by Nick’s distance to her in The Divide, if there wasn’t a part of her that loves him too. The way that Nick still sides with her at Circle meetings and still sticks up for her proves a deeper devotion for her that we have only just scratched the surface of.  I for one am really looking forward to see what happens between these two in The Hunt, particularly because of the silver cord connecting Adam to Scarlett as well as Cassie.

Sound off in the comments and let me know what you love about The Secret Circle book series.

Posted in Books, The Secret Circle | Posted by Jen

Alloy Entertainment has given us the release of the new book cover for ‘The Secret Circle: Temptation’ book number 6 in the series. Alloy teases that ‘Temptation’ won’t be too far behind the ‘Hunt’! And we’re already getting a sneak peek!

It’s always darkest before dawn.

Cassie hasn’t felt this alone since she moved to New Salem and joined the Circle – the closest thing to a family she’s ever known. But now that the Circle has been possessed by powerful evil spirits, Cassie is left with no choice but to turn to her dark side to rescue them. As she struggles to get through to her friends, and her soul mate, Adam, she finds an unexpected ally—one who will tempt her more than ever before.

With her enemies quickly closing in, Cassie fights to keep her heart true and her soul pure. But she knows better than anyone that all magic comes at a price, especially when Black John’s Book of Shadows is involved. Will Cassie defeat the darkness once and for all…or will the Circle be lost forever?

Early drafts of ‘The Secret Circle’ revealed yet another secret…

In early drafts of “The Secret Circle,” one of the main characters — Melissa, played by Jessica Parker Kennedy — was gay. The show was based on a series of books first published a decade ago, and because Melissa was one character who didn’t exist in the source material, there was a license to update the story. Initially, Melissa had a crush on her best friend Faye and was struggling to come to terms with her sexuality. After the show was further developed at the studio and the network level, Melissa became a straight girl with a thing for bad boys. At some point, some powerful person decided that was the story worth telling.

Save The Circle; Save Us All Lyrics

Here are the lyrics for the video I just posted

LYRICS
Six of us, part of something new
Six of us, away from the truth
The magic comes
It’s here in us
Can’t be apart
Protect we Must
Save us all
As a whole
It’s us at war
It’s written in the stars

Save the circle
Save us all
Save the circle
Save us all

A drop of water as light as air
I can’t make it work if you’re not there
The Darkness comes
It’s in my blood
The power holds
The good side hides
The magic is mine
We can fight
We can rise
Save me from the dark

Save the circle
Save us all
Save the circle
Save us all

SUB LUIGI TOTO (THE SINGER/SONGWRITER)

As if the show being cancelled wasn’t enough…
Posted in News | Posted by Jen

We don’t know how much more distress our wands can take before they snap in two. First, The Secret Circle was canceled by The CW. Then executive producer Kevin Williamson said the show is unlikely to be picked up by another network. Now Warner Bros. tells Zap2It TSC won’t even get a Season 1 DVD release. Dash it all, demon worms!
