Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"[D]electably dark....While Tiernan's ingredients are familiar, she stirs the cauldron with engaging, even cinematic, prose and sharply individuates her characters." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"This is largely an unexceptional high-school romance...that spends inordinate amounts of time describing what the well-dressed teenage witch is wearing this season." Catherine Andronik, Booklist

Review:

"This novel is an intriguing read about a young, vulnerable teenager who finds herself drawn to a 'strange phenomena,' that raises more questions than it gives answers." Michael Cush, Alan Review

Synopsis:

Morgan is introduced to Wicca when a gorgeous senior named Cal invites them to join his new coven. Morgan falls for Cal immediately — and discovers that she has strong, inexplicable powers.

I have reread this book many times. Yes, compared to later books, it is a bit dull, but the whole transformation of Morgan from an ignorant school girl to this wonderful, powerful person is magnificent.

Sweep. Wow, there are so many words. Breathtaking, is one of them. If i havent said it before i'll say it now: the fact that Morgan is imperfect makes her that much better. It makes her more human, and when she has the stunning inside of a wiccan good-girl, it makes us all love her with a firey passion. Sweep I first read in seventh grade and now im a junior in high school...i still read them, and have in the meantime read them about 10 times each. There are fourteen, and a super, in the Sweep series, so if you like this one, just wait. Get ready for a rollercoaster ride of discoveries, conflict, and most importantly in Sweep, the love affairs. Not only did i fall in love with Cal, but even more so with Hunter, believe me, you will too.
