View Reviews of this book from Barnes&NobleIn a matter of days Cassie is moved against her will to her mother’s hometown of New Salem to stay with her ailing grandmother that she’d never met.
Determined to hide her feelings for Adam from every one Cassie sets her sights on another Club member.
As Cassie navigates her way through her feelings death begins to stalk New Salem as the Club begins to explore one of the Master Tools. Cassandra "Cassie" Blake is the main protagonist of the series, as well as the soul-mate of Adam Conant. Cassie returns home happy that evening until she finds out they are moving to New Salem - supposedly due to her "sick grandmother". In the end of the Captive Part Two, Faye becomes Coven Leader and Releases Black John's Spirit.
In the first book she appears as shy which seems to fade away slowly throughout the novels. Cassie is an exceptionally beautiful fine-boned young girl with fair skin, large cornflower-blue eyes, a swan-like neck, and topaz-brown hair that is soft and slightly wavy with pretty highlights in it.
Cassie's working crystal is hematite, which evidently influenced her to do morally wrong things throughout the first three books. Diana, you've always treated me like family and I know things are really confusing right now, but if it turns out that you are my sister, I'd be really happy about that. Cassie Blake (born March 28, 1995) is the main female character and protagonist of The Secret Circle. Cassie was a happy, normal teenage girl until her mother Amelia died in what appeared to be a tragic accidental fire but not such as an accident. Adam teaches Cassie magic After the death of her mother, Cassie moves to Chance Harbor to live with her grandmother. Despite Cassie's independent and strong-willed personality, she is a very kind and loving young woman who cares deeply about her family and friends. Cassie Blake is well-known for her beautifully long blonde hair, heart-shaped face, full lips and ocean-blue eyes.
Her great potential was shown early in the series when she managed to subdue a storm neither Faye or Diana could stop, showing an affinity for Atmokinesis. When Faye was being contacted directly by the residual energy of her dead grandfather, Cassie was the only one who could see the ilusions as well, indicating she has stronger magical senses than Jake, Adam, Diana.
When Kate Meade buried her alive to test the limits of her powers by bringing her to the brink of death, Cassie's dark magic proved to be too powerful for the ritual to hold her and such it was proven that she is more powerful than an experienced Elder. At the Fire and Ice Dance, Cassie proved to be highly resistant to external influences that seek to take away her powers, as shown when the Voodoo ritual Faye and Lee made failed to overpower her natural defenses. During Sacrifice, she fought against a demon and although she failed to defeat it she succeded in employing the use of Pyrokinesis.
Cassie have also used Circle magic to great effect like when they toss around Zachary Larson with Aerokinesis and when she combined her powers with Jake to fend off witch hunter Simone. While her half-sister Diana also has Dark magic, Cassie has a stronger magical potential because she is also a Blake.
It is possible that Cassie is the most powerful witch in her circle, due to both her Blake and Blackwell bloodlines. Telepathy: Telepathy is the act of reading , project,controlling and channeling the energy and mind of another witch.

Witches Brew: The act of brewing and concocting magical elixirs and potions that contain mystical properties. After the death of her mother she move to Chance Harbor to stay with her grandmother who welcomed her with open arms. Cassandra was the daughter of Priam of Troy, courted by Apollo who gave her the gift of prophecy, but she did not love him so he turned his gift top her into a curse, so that no one would believe her visions. The name is of uncertain origin, though the second element looks like a female form of Greek andros "of man, male human being". Her middle name, Amelia, means "work" and is a varient of Amalia.  A famous person who was also named Amelia, was Amelia Earhart (1897-1937), the first woman to make a solo flight over the Atlantic Ocean. The Blake Spell Book The Blake Book of Shadows The Blake Family Book of Shadows is a journal with documented ancient recipes, rituals, and spells. Incantation: Give me light that I may see the many mysteries held for me Earth, Air and Water to sustain that I might be renewed again.

The Blackwell Coven Symbol The sign is the shape of a circle with a triangle in it and a cross on top and at the left of the cross was a shape of a throwing star this symbol was carved by John Blackwell in the basement of the abandoned house and there was also mentioned that he lived there when Cassie and Adam checked on the computer in the school of Chance Harbor they found a document paper on the computer and the address was 7 Briar Hill the same address at the abandoned house. Some fans speculate that Cassie's mother put the Blackwell family symbol in the book as a warning to her daughter. There are more images and pictures of the Blake grimoire than the Meade and Armstrong grimoires. Cassie's grimoire is the only one that contains a letter from a member of the prior Circle. With thoughts of the mysterious boy from the beach never far from her mind Cassie tries to fit in but at her new school she’s teased and tormented by what she believes is a gang. Same stuff about bestseller then and now, when it was released packaged with Dark Reunion (the book with the picture of half the face of Elena, the blond girl). Lisa wrote Phantom, but at that time Alloy Entertainment Inc used the fact that she'd done the original trilogy as "work for hire" to remove her from doing any further Vampire Diaries Books. After moving to New Salem with her mother, Cassie is initiated into the Circle and discovers that she is descended from a long line of powerful witches, and hence a potent witch in her own right. From what she understood, her mother had a falling out with her maternal grandmother, and her father had left the family. Her arrogant and self-righteous friend, Portia, tells her to keep her head down and not to look at him, but when the dog licks her, she looks up and - though she does not know it - falls in love with the boy.
Giving into an instinctual need to protect him, she helped to hide and cover up for him when his pursuers arrive.
After Faye Chamberlain discovers Cassie's secret yearnings for Adam, she begins blackmailing making Cassie to do her bidding. Despite her insecurities and self-doubt, Cassie is a very bubbly young woman who cares deeply about her family and friends - showing a lot of selflessness. There are some differences in her appearance and a lot personality - notably Cassie being a blonde on the show, but a brunette in the books. Orphaned and deeply saddened, Cassie moved in with her warm and loving grandmother Jane in the beautiful small town of Chance Harbor, Washington - the town her mother left so many years before - where the residents seems to know more about Cassie than she does about herself. Shortly before Cassie's birth, John betrayed Amelia by having an affair with Elizabeth Meade which resulted in her half-sister Diana Meade being born less than a month later.

After beginning a new year at Chance Harbor High School, Cassie is soon taken under the wing of Diana Meade. First her mother died and the loss, along with the realization she will have to start doing things on her own, made her tougher.
When the entire Circle was once kidnapped and was about to be killed by Luke she was able to blow up one of Luke's Witch Cruids with a solid shout. When Isaac tried to kidnap Cassie and deliver her to the council of Witch Hunters, he recognized the danger she poses on them shall her dark magic been unleashed on the boat and so he didn't pursue her when she escaped.
This ability was shown again when a potion with Lethe root designed to take away her feelings for Adam didn't work on her. Cassie also repeatedly shows outstanding use of Telekinesis ranging from lifting heavy things and throw them to light weighted spears with greater precision. In fact, if she would have the same amount of magical training as that of John Blackwell, it would be fairly possible that Cassie would be more powerful than Blackwell, but as she lacks years of training her father is still more powerful than her through experience. Though not proven false or accurate, witches are believed to possess an unique affinity to particular elements which grant them greater mastery and control when performing. They're written in the stars like her mother and his father were before them which is destiny and they shared a connection the moment they met. She heard about her father and the dark deeds he has done while learning about her dark magic and her other family. Watkins suggest PIE * (s)kand- "to shine" as source of second element, hence possible "praise of men".
A famous person whos last name was also Blake was the poet and artist William Blake (1757-1827). The Blake Family Book seems to have more power and ancient spells than the other available Books of Shadows. Later Cassie finds the symbol that was drawn on the ceiling of the abandoned house basement.
SmithCassie Blake sat quietly on a beach in Cape Cod listening to the eternally full of herself Portia Bainbridge go on and on-as usual about her and her older brothers many accomplishments. With no interest in anything but cars Cassie hoped to put her attention on Nick to block out her love for Adam. Deciding what to do with the Master Tools tears the club apart and draws a darker line between Diana and Faye. Packaged with The Awakening, and I think available as an individual book saying "Now a TV series on the CW." But it's best to ask a bookstore about how it is available at this point. An anonymous ghostwriter will finish the series, possibly making it more like the TV series, according to the only statement Alloy Entertainment Inc. During their conversation, Cassie could not help but wonder if there was more to the boy than met the eye, for he seemed capable of reading her read. In return, the boy gives Cassie a chalcedony rose, and tells her that he will come to her when she squeezed it while thinking of him.
Despite the fact that she initially had little confidence in her looks, others - like Adam from the start - notice her prettiness, and as she grew into a powerful confident witch whose friends always helped her as best as they could with issues of makeup and fashion, she also bloomed into a stunning head-turning beauty who was even once declared "Belle of the Ball".
As Cassie gets to know her high school classmates, including sweet-natured Diana, her handsome boyfriend Adam, brooding loner Nick, mean-girl Faye and her sidekick Melissa, strange and frightening things begin to happen. John also summoned demons which resulted in Amelia leaving him prior to the events of the Boatyard Fire. Then her grandmother died and she channeled all the anger she felt against the witch hunters.  Her use of Dark Magic also began to take a hold on her, making her more short-temperd and more willing to kill then to listen to both sides. At the beginning of the series she wore more colorful clothing but as her dark magic was revealed she slowly began wearing more grey and black clothing.
Seconds after this, she reversed the effects of the Witch Cruid, causing it to set Luke of fire ,killing him instead of Diana, proving just how powerful her dark magic truly is as she activated its power through instinct alone and it was enough to overpower a barrier of ashwood, a special type of wood which renders most use of magic useless, thought it may not work on Dark Magic, as Iron, which blocks normal magic, did not seem to effect it.
She also has considerable constrictive powers, as shown constantly when she have choke someone with dark magic. Her friendship with Diana got complicated through the connection she has with her boyfriend Adam. She finally met him though she wasn't too happy to see him due to his dark past and his absents from her life.
She trust her enough to reveal that she is a witch and ask her for guidance when the circle couldn't. It also showed the same symbol in the Blake book of shadows which was drew by John Blackwell and was also known as a symbol that is used in spellcraft and is a symbol for channeling dark magic and this symbol was also shown on a necklace in the episode "Witness" when John Blackwell was about to get burned by the witch hunters he used this symbol to channel his power to to make the fire explode in line trails in the form of a pentagram to kill and set all of the witch hunters on fire and the room also. Originally published in 1992 as a trilogy, The Secret Circle centers around Cassie Blake as she and her mother - Alexandra Blake - move to the town of New Salem to live with Cassie's grandmother, Maeve Howard. She was counting the days one painful second at a time until she could get back home to her real friends. When the beautiful and kind Diana steps in to save Cassie from Faye’s bullying she’s shocked to discover that Diana too, is a member of The Club.
A bestseller, both in 1991, when it was first published, and now, when it has been reissued, both as an omnibus packaged with Volume 2: The Struggle. When her new friends explain they are all descended from powerful witches and they've been waiting for Cassie to join them and complete a new generation of the Secret Circle, Cassie refuses to believe them - until Adam shows her how to unlock her incredible magical powers. Sara Armstrong stated in the Witness flashback Amelia would never forgive John for what he did to her and that Amelia helped Ethan in the plot to kill John which backfired and led to the death of hal the members of the Circle.
During Family, she succeded in overriding the command John Blackwell put on the Crystal Skull and used it to kill her father, albeit with the help of her sister Diana.
Upon her arrival, Cassie is tormented by Faye Chamberlain and her friends at school, but she befriends Faye's benevolent cousin Diana Meade and becomes popular as a result.
He had dark red hair, and he was tall, and even at this distance she could see that he was smiling.” There was a dog at his heels.
With Diana’s help Cassie finds that The Club is split by those that follow Diana and those that follow Faye. Taking on a new face the darkness threatens to destroy the whole town and the coven with it. Lisa retained the name Eternity and is writing a book called Eternity: A Vampire Love Story. But it's not until Cassie discovers a message from her mother in an old leather-bound book of spells hidden in her mother's childhood bedroom, that she understands her true and dangerous destiny.
Later consumed by guilt and stripped of her magic, Amelia abandoned what was left her coven by moving to Los Angeles with Cassie.
