They kept you on the edge of your seat through the whole series and I didn’t want them to end but what a great ending to a great series. These books are incredibly underrated and in my opinion deserve a much bigger spotlight. Upon learning that she is a blood witch, Morgan concludes that her parents are blood bpok and confronts them. It’s probably cuz I’ve been re-watching Charmed. I first discovered this series aged 14, and in a weird way, I almost feel like the books chose me.

Oct 26, Loren rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Some detail is enjoyable, but when so few characters really have anything to do at all back to this later and there is so much time spent re-hashing everyone’s mundane shwdows details in every single book when it doesn’t affect anything else, it gets really boring really fast. Even with Morgan and Bree hanging out in two completely different crowds, it never dampens their close relationship.

Book of Shadows (Sweep, #1) by Cate Tiernan

I’m much more idiosyncratic and just need to do my own thing, which is kind of new-agey and pantheistic. After eight years I was ready for a change, and my husband and I moved back to New Orleans.

I could see how this would make someone curious about Wicca. The two soon find themselves battling an enemy they thought fate dead. View all 6 comments. I greatly admire P. This book is entirely from Alisa Soto’s tiernah with the difficulties of finding out she is a blood witch and her weird powers and the added stress from her father and his pregnant girlfriend, Alisa’s powers flood Hunter’s house.

This series is a gem among the vast heaps of horrid YA novels out there. By Cal openly shadwos interest in Morgan, he ends up creating a rift between her and Bree. Morgan gets back together with Hunter, and during a family dinner with Hunter, Mary K finally finds out the truth about what Selene had done to her, and how Selene and Cal died.

Halfway through, she acts quite snarky and bitchy towards Morgan but this change does tie back to Cal’s tietnan. It reminded me of The Secret Circle. Oh, and the best friend is way too much of a bitch. Then I went back to Boom York Manhattan and got a job in publishing and started writing.

She tells us how her characters feel, rather than describing their reactions and letting us see it; shrugs details off as supernatural magic mojo instead of giving any real reason for events to occur; and tends to bludgeon her readers with the Big Bat of Foreshadowing instead of dropping a subtle trail of bread crumbs leading up to the big revelation s.

The Book of Shadows

First off, let me say that if you are looking for a true to life portrayal of the Wiccan faith, look elsewhere. At the invitation of Bree, they stay at the apartment of Bree’s father.

Hunter suspects that the dark magick is being used by David Redstone, owner of Practical Magick, and Morgan’s friend. Right now, though, it’s pretty much everything that I wanted in a book.

oof Will definitely carry on and re-read more of the series over the next few months. The writing is solid and the story is interesting. He’s Wiccan, a different religion than Morgan and one that she has never come into contact with before. The vulnerable nature of the main character means we can begin to empathise with her unusually quickly.
