2.0 out of 5 stars Eh... Dec 28 2001
Format:Paperback
Cam and Alex are just adjusting to being sisters, and to being witches. Their powers are new but powerful and will take a while to be controlled. And when they're faced with a new problem they realize that their brush with death won't be their last. When Ilena comes to town (undercover) she warns the two witches about a powerful messenger witch coming and looking for them. Cam and Alex need to find out who this is but their esially distracted. Their 15th birthday party is coming up, a new girl at school as clung to Alex in a strangely embarressing way, a new teacher proves to be less than nice, and Alex just can't adjust to her new life. SHe misses her mother and cannot fit in with Cam's friends. But when a new boy comes to school something about him draws her attention towards him. But little dose she know this new kid has a secret that no one would ever guess.
This book had good points and bad points. THe story line was interesting and thrilling but the authors torchured it but filling up the dialog with unreal teen speak that no self respecting 14 (and 15) year old would dare use. The girls powers are interesting but they use it far too many times in front of mortals without them noticing. Cam and Alex are interesting charecters but you find yourself wishing that Ilena would get hit by a bus. Her selfishness from the last book has grown in ridiculous porportions. ANd the ending, while orginal and exciting, is toatally predictable. THis book could have been great but it's not. It's a quick read that fans of the series should read but nothing more. I will read the next book in the series in hope that it's better (and it looks much more interesting) but I don't reccomend this book to anyone but fans of the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable read..... Aug. 12 2001
Format:Paperback
It hasn't been that long since Alexandra Fielding and Camryn Barnes found out that they were twin sisters, separated at birth in order to protect them from their uncle, the powerful Lord Thantos. Not only are the girls twins, but they are witches as well. It was for this reason that they were separated. But now the sisters are together, and their uncle will stop at nothing to have them.
The girls have been warned by their guardian Ileana that Lord Thantos would be sending a messenger to bring them to him. They have a few likely suspects, but no hard evidence. Cade Richman is new in school, and is hiding a secret. Alex feels drawn to him, but Cam doesn't trust him. Could he be the messenger? Then there is the nerdy, energetic, and very annoying Madison Knudnick. Cam and Alex don't know what to make of her. The new English teacher Mr. Shnorer seems to have it in for Alex. Could he be the messenger? In addition to being on the look out for the messenger sent by Lord Thantos, the girls find themselves being drawn into the mystery of Cade Richman and the robbery that took place at his house. Alexandra and Camryn were born to be protectors of the innocent, but will they unravel this mystery in time?
The second book in the T*Witches series was very enjoyable. While I find Cam's "six pack" friends annoying, I really enjoy the relationship that is being built between the sisters. The author revealed a bit more of the girls' history to us in this book, and raised some questions about the past of their protector Ileana. I am looking forward to both Alex and Cam's and well as Ileana's pasts being untangled. Recommended.

Format:Paperback
Fourteen-year-olds Camryn and Alexandra discovered they were identical twin witches, separated at birth, by accident. But fate has conspired to keep them together, as they discover that together their powers are stronger than apart. Now that Alex's adoptive mother has died, she has been given a home with Cam's wealthy adoptive parents in Marblehead, Massachusetts. Alex, raised in poverty in rural Montana, feels out of place among her sister's friends and classmates. Not only that, but they have received a warning from their guardian, Ileana, that a minion of Thantos's has entered their lives, disguised as a friend. Now their very lives are in danger, if they do not find out who that person is. Cam suspects Cade, the new boy that Alex has a crush on. Cade does seem to be hiding a secret, but could he really be evil, and planning to hand the twins over to Thantos? All readers who enjoyed the first book in the T*Witches series will want to read this one. I can't wait until the third book, Seeing is Deceiving, is released.

5.0 out of 5 stars An unknown enemy.... Aug. 22 2001
Format:Paperback
Cam and Alex have learned the truth about their pasts, and who their real parents are. Alex, who has had to move from her place since her mother died, is learning to adjust to Cam's school and her house, but tensions within her are rising for her mother's death. But it seems that the evil Thantos, who murdered their real parents, is out to get them again -- either to use their powers for evil, or destroy the twins. They know Thantos has sent a messenger to get them, only they don't know who this messenger is -- they can't suspect everyone they meet. But there's the lure of Cade, the new kid at school, he seems to be very secretive. Cam and Alex need to get to the bottom of the mystery, if they can survive the evil that surrounds them -- and the forces conspiring to get them. T*Witches #2: Building A Mystery is a great second book in this magical new series. I thought the first book was a little dull, but the second book was very exciting -- and kept me turning the pages throughout.
