    Read April 2015 3.5 stars I’ve previously read & loved Volumes 1 to 3 and was really excited to read this one. Sadly I didn’t love this one as much as the others. The others are mostly from the perspective of Morgan and this one isn’t. The first book in here (Seeker) is from Hunter (her boyfriend)’s perspective and yes I did like this, but where I rated the previous ones all 5 starts I’d say this one was more of a 3,5 to maybe a 4 stars.

About a 2,5 star rating for this one I think. The last book in this Bind-up (Eclipse) was half from Morgan’s perspective, Half From Alisa’s (a coven member/friend of Morgan’s sister) I did like this one, not as much as the books in Volume 1 to 3, but would definitely give this one a solid 4 stars.

    So in my original review of this volume, which was published in like 2013 or something, I said that the characters were starting to feel very flat and one-dimensional, that the compressed timeline was driving me bananas, and that Morgan's Mary Sue level of magical ability was giving me Harry Potter fanfic flashbacks.

For the record, all of that is still true. However. The climactic confrontation between Morgan and her allies and Amyranth's dark wave was well done. It felt like they earned that victory. Although, I do still feel that defeating the dark wave should have come before they confronted Ciaran and stripped him of his powers. Additionally, I really, really truly hate the fact that we've defeated a man called "the most powerful dark witch of our generation," but that this is the fourth of five volumes. Like, no. What the hell. That is not how you build a story. Literally anything that happens after Ciaran's defeat is anticlimactic and out of place in the narrative.

    Great addition to the series. I wish Morgan and Hunter were a little more involved in some parts of this book, but it was still very interesting. I stayed up for several hours reading this book and only put it down when I could not see any longer to read the words.

    Loved the book so much, but the FRUSTRATION. —————— SPOILERS —————— So I loved the fact that Hunter’s dad, Daniel, was still alive. But at the same time I felt Hunter’s emotional rollercoaster.. Hearing that his mom just died a few months ago and that the council knew it!!! And just feeling the emotionial pain about finding his dad in such a bad state, still desperately trying to contact his wife. Not wanting to libe anymore, even for his kids..

And the worst part, Hunter doesn’t even know. He thinks it’s his doing... Not even in the mood to type about the Justine part. So yeah, frustrating AF. Also the whole Rose and Diarmuid story was so boring if you ask me. From the moment she gets accused for being a witch, that’s when the interesting part starts. But sadly that’s already close to the ending. So if you ask me, that story could have been WAAAAAY shorter. On the other hand, I was so excited when Alisa found her mothers BOS. Finally getting to know she’s a witch!! I already had my suspiciouns so it felt good when it was confirmed. It was nice to see that Alisa knew it wasn’t Morgans doing with all the telekenetic stuff but her. Now they’re finally bonding. AND JUST TO SAY, WELL DONE ALISA, WELL DONE. You beat the dark wave. OMW TO THE LAST BOOOK. Really praying for a happy ending. Think I’ll set the whole series on fire if it doesn’t end well. And by a happy ending I mean, HUNTER AND MORGAN WITH BABIESS. Okay maybe to much (maybe not) but honestly, as long as they end together, im fine.

While we finally get SOME connections between books, the only overarching plot for the series since the beginning is still "WhEn wiLl MoRgaN GeT lAid!?!?" We had a couple little arcs ((view spoiler)[Ciaran, Alisa, dark wave, Hunter's parents (hide spoiler)] ) that have been building up over the past 5-ish books, but now those are all neatly resolve, so I guess the final volume will be going in a new direction. The last book in this bindup (#12) was the first one that I hadn't read as a teenager, so the rest will be completely new content for me! Woo! Once again, the characters, circumstances, and plot are so inconsistent, completely dependent on what the author needs in the moment to make something--anything!--happen or attempt to be emotional or dramatic. The whole series just feels so incoherently strung together. Being a pantser writer is perfectly valid and can be awesome, but I've never read anything that *felt* more pantsed than this series does. It's still a guilty pleasure of mine and I'm having a lot of fun reading it, but good lord, these characters can be so stupid. And this sudden shift to different perspectives after NINE books in one perspective does not give me much faith in the author's investment in this series either.

    Cat's Review

    Wow. I was not expecting a point of view change with book #10 (Seeker). It seems like a rather abrupt move. Maybe the author had nothing else to say from Morgan’s point of view. I guess she couldn’t come up with anything interesting enough (like we saw what had happened in The Changeling and Strife) so she decided to try a different tactic. It was getting a little tiresome listening to Morgan’s constant mundane life, hearing about her constant Wiccan problems with her family, falling behind in s Wow. I was not expecting a point of view change with book #10 (Seeker). It seems like a rather abrupt move. Maybe the author had nothing else to say from Morgan’s point of view. I guess she couldn’t come up with anything interesting enough (like we saw what had happened in The Changeling and Strife) so she decided to try a different tactic. It was getting a little tiresome listening to Morgan’s constant mundane life, hearing about her constant Wiccan problems with her family, falling behind in school, not keeping her promises, not fully explaining things to Mary K. so that her sister would understand what was happening to Morgan. I really think that the author ran out of steam in her effort to write about Morgan after The Calling. It was like she had no real concrete ideas about how to write about an important event and then how to successfully end it. Who knows. Maybe reading this series from Hunter’s point of view will lead to more interesting tales in the rest of this series. The book begins with Hunter now repeating information about Practical Magick and Morgan. We get a full description of what Morgan looks like (like we don’t know after nine books?). Sigh… Each book is under 190 pages (actually Seeker is 172 pages, Origins is 188 pages and Eclipse is 184 pages) so my guess about filling these books with repetitive information to increase the word count probably is not wrong. In the same note of repetitive information, the author writes six times in seven pages about how Hunter has not seen his parents in eleven years. Really? Six times? I think I got it after the first time. (I finished Seeker and there were at least fourteen times the author told us that there was an eleven year gap since Hunter had seen his parents/father. I guess the author wanted the readers to really be aware of the many years that had separated Hunter from his parents. Well, I was a bit disappointed at the outcome of Hunter actually finding the location of his parents and being offered the chance to go and see them. This is all he talked about for many books: how he never knew what happened to them, didn’t know why they left him and his siblings, whether they were alive or dead, etc. Now, here is his big reunion and it just turned out to be a depressing affair. Justine, the new character introduced to the story, is a witch who is using dark magic to obtain true names of people. We learn this from her diary entries. It is here that I have decided that I do not like the diary entries that tell us about the characters before the main characters get to know them. It takes away from the story – limits the surprise the reader gets when faced with a big reveal. When the main character finds out something that the reader has known all along, it’s no big deal. I had no reaction when Daniel (Hunter’s father) told Hunter that Justine was getting her information from the spirits. I predict that Justine is going to find out Hunter’s true name and use it against him somehow – maybe make him a slave or find a way to control him because her diary entry indicates that she is not finished with Hunter. I definitely was intrigued to learn about Kennet and the information he withheld from Hunter. I wonder how Hunter will handle this information in the next book. Origins (book #11) was fantastic!! This story was so well written that I devoured that book in one day. Rose MacEwan was a sympathetic character that always thought that she was doing the right thing, even when her mother cautioned her to do the opposite. I had wondered if Diarmuid was spelled in the end because his actions were completely opposite of those from when he met and secretly courted Rose. I actually felt her love, betrayal and her wrath bubbling up inside of her as she connected with what she thought was the Goddess to help her release her power. The spell wasn’t meant to flow out of her like a dark wave and she never intended it to decimate an entire village. She only wanted the Goddess to strike those who harmed her threefold. This is a book that I would definitely reread. Eclipse (book # 12) brings us back to Morgan’s point of view but then, out of nowhere, we are suddenly thrown into Alisa’s point of view. I was confused when I started the chapter because it sounded like Morgan but Morgan would not use her sister’s full name and refer to her as a friend. I had to reread the first couple paragraphs before I realized that it was actually Alisa. (view spoiler)[ Alisa is seriously attracted to a green book in Morgan’s backpack and my prediction is that the green book is Alisa’s mother’s Book of Shadows. This is where Alisa will learn that she is a blood witch. (hide spoiler)] Ah… now I see the reason for Sarah Curtis’s diary entries back in Strife (book #9). Very weird that we would have to wait this long to see the connection – maybe it would have worked better if Sarah’s diary entries were added to Eclipse instead of Strife. Why is Hunter suddenly saying, “Hullo” instead of “Hello” – which is what he had been saying since he was first introduced? Is that so we remember that he’s English? I was a bit disappointed in the handling of Ciaran. I thought that it would have been better if he was part of the dark wave that was heading to Widow’s Vale. It just seemed anticlimactic to take him out of the picture and then have the witches try to take out the dark wave. (view spoiler)[ I was very impressed with Alisa and her ability to work on the spell for the dark wave. She showed a lot of courage and acceptance and her character grew so suddenly in such a short amount of time. In a way, I wish there was more time given in the book for Alisa to discover her witch heritage so that we saw more of her actions and reactions. Maybe we’ll see more of that in the latter books. (hide spoiler)] Though the ending seemed a bit rushed, Eclipse was a great book. Morgan’s character started to act more mature, like she did in the first volume and the main characters felt well developed and full of life. I give Volume 4, 4 stars.

    The story continues with Morgan and Hunter trying to figure out who they are and what they want.

So far of all the books (these are the combined books) these three have been my least favorite, they feel as though they are being dragged onwards by a rope that won't break and I sort of just want the series to end already, however, I know that there are 3 more books (which I've already started to read). This series had gone on long enough and I'm only hanging on to it because I love that it is about Wicca and (even though it's more a modern fantasy) I love the descriptions of magical practices and I like to support more works for Wiccan/Pagan kids.

    My favorite line so far: "We're not talking about golf here, Justine. We're talking about magick." -Seeker, p128 3.5 stars. This collection started off so well, with probably the best book in the series so far in which we follow Hunter to Canada to find his dad and deal with a renegade witch while he's in the neighborhood. I thought the complicated situation and complex emotions were handled well. The next entry was not so great, however. I'm not a fan of unsympathetic main characters in general, My favorite line so far: "We're not talking about golf here, Justine. We're talking about magick." -Seeker, p128 3.5 stars.

I wasn't thrilled with the prospect of more Alisa in the third book, but she does mature a bit and the suspense is good.

    Time continues to move forward in the Sweep world, but very slowly at times. I found this 4th volume containing a trio of novelettes a little strange in that the major characters (one previously peripheral character has gotten a promotion in this installment) took turns narrating instead of the reader getting Morgan's POV. I can understand, for the most part, why the author took this approach; Morgan is not physically present during many of the events.

    Didn't love this as much as the previous ones. Didn't care for an entire book of Hunter's POV. It was just boring. While Rose's POV was a bit more interesting, her questionable morals (love spells aren't consent so basically rape fyi) got on my nerves quickly. The 3rd book was better, I finally warmed up to Alisa but her POV was still too much compared to Morgan's. Didn't love this as much as the previous ones.

    The first third of this book, Seeker, was extremely dull for me. It took a lot for me to push through it. The second third I absolutely adored! It was all about Morgan’s ancestor Rose. I feel like I could read a whole series about her. The final third was a mixture of dull and exciting. I mostly didn’t like reading the Alisa Soto bits.

    Seeker: I was excited to find this change of narrator from Morgan to Hunter for this book and it felt nice to read something a little different. Hunter is one of my favourite characters in the series and it was great to find out a little more about his backstory and actually getting inside his head. Though I have to admit my mind occasionally wandered and felt like I was wondering back into Morgan's head again, I guess it's really difficult to change point of views (especially gender) when Morgan Seeker: I was excited to find this change of narrator from Morgan to Hunter for this book and it felt nice to read something a little different.

Though I have to admit my mind occasionally wandered and felt like I was wondering back into Morgan's head again, I guess it's really difficult to change point of views (especially gender) when Morgan has been the first person narrator for like what, 9 books now? Origins: This took me A LONG WHILE to get into, mostly because I honestly did not care about Rose in anyway at all. It sounded extremely obvious that Tiernan had run out of things to write and decided to do an origins story. But I just felt like it didn't work because, getting into the "reality" of it - Both Morgan & Hunter were supposed to be together reading Rose's book of shadows. I mean how freaking weird is it to read a book together, this means they would have to both read EXACTLY in tune and turn the pages at the exact same time to get through the story together. It just seems ridiculous. Especially of course since Rose's tale was written LIKE A BOOK, not a DIARY like they said it was. And we know how the witches in Tiernan's world write in their book of shadows, because its basically been at the beginning of every chapter of EVERY book in like 5 or 6 different accounts of people. HOWEVER - we got to understand a little more about the dark wave but still, Rose's whole story felt like a waste of time to me and could have been done in half the time through limited book of shadow diary entries… NOT A WHOLE BLOODY BOOK! Eclipse: OH MY GOD. I can't even express how boring Alissa is to me. I just can't even deal with her sections of the story and it took me so long to get into Alissa's narrative, constantly getting confused at the chapter changes of narration between her and Morgan. It was so BLATANTLY obvious from the start that this Sarah Curtis from the previous book was obviously her mother and I really wish that Tiernan would consider that her reading audiences just aren't as dumb as she thinks we are. Nothing ever surprises me in the stories it is just set out so obviously and always REPEATED AND REPEATED as if we don't get it. Trust me, WE GET IT! Despite Alissa's horrible narratives, I did like this book but hated the way Ciaran was basically pushed under the rug. Like I mean couldn't so much more be done with him? You're really gonna write him out of the story by a teenage girl luring him to a cemetery and stripping his powers within like 5 minutes? No epic battles? No nothing? Even the demolition of the dark wave was so extremely lame. Just poof. Done. And Ciaran takes NO revenge on ANYONE once he's been stripped of power? REALLY? Gah… well despite my misgivings with this volume, it wasn't exactly BAD - I still give it 4 stars, but it sure wasn't up there with the first volumes.

    I was a little hesitant when I learned that the majority of the volume would not be told for the main character Morgan's POV. But I must say that I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this book despite the change in POV. Seeker is told form Hunter's POV and I really liked learning more about him in this section. he was more humorous than I thought and at times he was a total guy, yet he was still very much Hunter and if you have read this series you know who that is. Hunter has to leave Widow's I was a little hesitant when I learned that the majority of the volume would not be told for the main character Morgan's POV.

Hunter has to leave Widow's Vale to try and find some answers about his past. He has to deal with some really difficult issues and does not have Morgan at his side to help him out, after she is still in high school. I have to say that Seeker was probably my favorite out of the series this far. Origins is told from the POV of one of Morgan's ancestors, Rose. In this section Morgan and Hunter read one of Morgan's ancestors Book of Spells where the two learn more about Rose and Morgan learns more about her heritage. I really didn't think I would like Origins but I liked Seeker so I hoped this section wouldn't be bad. It was really interesting to learn about Rose, the burning times, and the clan wars. It helped to clarify why certain things happened in the future (if you want to know you should read this series). I also liked how I was able to see how Wicca was practiced by Morgan's ancestors and how most of what they practiced is passed down and is still followed. It is easy to see how the line between light and dark is so easily crossed. And you may not even know that you are crossing the line. The last book in this volume is told from Morgan and Alisa's (Ex-Coven Member) POV. Though I liked the way the story developed I wasn't too fond of Alisa's chapters, I would have preferred to just have Morgan's chapters. In Eclipse a darkness that has threatened those that Morgan loves is now aimed at her. Morgan has struggled to keep Wicca from completely taking over her life in Eclipse she is finally able to get school, Wicca and her family life more evenly balanced out. But a wave of darkness threatens to destroy what she has come to love. Morgan along with her soul mate Hunter and a few others must try to stave of the darkness that is directed at them. Will they be able to stop the darkness in time I sure hope so (wait I already know). I am more than ready for the final volume in this series.

In Seeker we get the full book in Hunter's POV with the chance to sneak a peek into Morgans BOS, In Origins we get a full story from one of Morgans ancestors that adds so much depth to the continuing story throughout the series. And Eclipse switches between Morgans and Alisa's POV's between chapters to allow us the chance to see the story from different sides. I have to admit, I did really enjoy reading Hunters POV, I feel like until now he's never given the chance to prove himself and so always comes across as standoffish. In this book we get to see the true depth of his feeling for not just Morgan, but also his parents. And while it shows off his weakness as much as it does his strengths it makes him a well rounded character and I find myself drawn to him more than I had previously. Tiernans decision to explore Morgans ancestry some more was a great one. In Seeker we find out that Hunter has come across a book written by Rose McEwan, an ancestor of Morgans. In Origins Morgan and Hunter read that book. So what we are reading is essentially Rose's diary of events obviously told from her point of view. After hearing Rose's story, Morgan once again questions her powers and where they come from and which side of dark and light magick does she truly stand? In Eclipse we get to learn a bit more about Alisa, who until now has mostly been hidden off to the side. In the past she has been both in awe and terrified of Magick, and in this book she finally comes to terms with the magick around her.... and learns about her own family history. It was actually really nice to see her realise that she has much more in common with Morgan than she had thought. In honesty, I think Tiernan could have left Morgan's story right here... but I have to say I am grateful that there is still one more omnibus to come.

    Seeker I liked the idea of seeing through Hunter's point of view because the direction that the story was heading in really wouldn't have made sense otherwise. However, i found Hunter's reactions to some parts of the story rather dull; I had to take a break from reading this book because of it, but overall good story and good plot. 4 stars Origins I LOVED this book.

I thought it was an extremely well thought out addition to the series as it provided extra incite on the history of woodbanes and dark magick/the dark wave. Tiernan did a really good job in making the reader feel that it was a completely knew character and not just Morgan in a past life, or Morgan rewritten. 5 stars Eclipse I liked the general idea and plot of the story but i personally didn't like Alisa at all as a character and found her feelings towards Morgan rather childish. In my opinion, ****spoilers**** it was VERY obvious that it was Alisa who was causing all of the telekinetic occurrences to happen and found it rather annoying that she hadn't even thought about the possibility in the slightest. Yes, she was yet unaware of her heritage, but come on, every time she got freaked out by something, some kind of object went flying. I found it kind of annoying that she just played it off as Morgan being uncontrollable. Despite my annoyance with Alisa as a character, I liked that her ancestry was finally revealed and that we as readers had already been given a little insight about it through the book of shadows entries preceding the chapters in previous books. The resolution of the problem was good as well; I liked that a new 'hero' was brought into the mix, despite my feelings towards said hero as a character. 4.5 stars I'd say the volume as a whole is about a 4.5 stars.

    Seeker At the end of Strife I wondered about the limitations of a first person narrator when the focus of the story needs to change. This one was written from Hunter's perspective which addresses the issue I guess. I am not really a fan of first person narratives typically. Even when they're done well, as this series is, I still find them limiting. Ten books in and the story is continuing to grow. I find myself wondering if Justine Courceau is going to cause serious trouble and hoping that Hu Seeker At the end of Strife I wondered about the limitations of a first person narrator when the focus of the story needs to change.

I find myself wondering if Justine Courceau is going to cause serious trouble and hoping that Hunter's father Daniel gets his act together. I do wish Tiernan would include a pronunciation guide for the Gaelic words and phrases.. 3.5 stars Origins This book felt like a detour away from the story. I know why it was written and what it contributes in terms of backstory but I didn't really enjoy it. I did feel sorry for Rose (for a while) and it shows that the path to evil is so easily walked, in the beginning at least. 2.5 stars Eclipse It's funny to think there are still three books left of this series, considering how this one finished. I feel sorry for Morgan and the choices she had had to make in this book. It's interesting to note how quickly Alisa became important to the story. I prefer the current time to the past explored in the previous book. 3.5 stars

    I did somewhat enjoy this volume. I couldn't relate to Alisa's POV (character) as much as I could with Morgan. Maybe it's because I'm an adult and the POV is a young high school girl. It seemed a lot of this had went too fast. I struggled with Origins. A lot of it was just so plain predictable it was just egh. Cate left hints here and there what was going to happen and I also felt like they could of done more with Ciaran. Through out the whole series I thought, whatever happened with Killian, Morg I did somewhat enjoy this volume. I couldn't relate to Alisa's POV (character) as much as I could with Morgan.

Through out the whole series I thought, whatever happened with Killian, Morgan's brother? Cate completely had forgotten that he existed up til the very ending which really was in humiliation of his character because he arrived drunk while he didn't get to witness his father being stripped of his power. I think the most enjoyable parts of this volume was Hunter and Daniel's relationship drama. I hated how fast Alisa came into the story and had to save the day. I feel there was a lot more that could be done with the characters and other than rushing to get to the point, there could of been more character development. Oh well. I do enjoy the series so I'm going to finish it and see what happens with Morgan. I relate to her a lot and that's what keeping me intrigued.

    I'm always captivated by the Wiccan world. I don't know what it is, but I love it. Cate Tiernan surely does not disappoint when it comes to the Sweep series. This book in particular was wonderful. The first part of the book was mostly told in Hunter's point of view with some diary entries from Morgan. I found this part a bit annoying. I simply did not see why Hunter stayed there for so long. He should have just taken him and left. But that's just me.

The decisions Rose had made were a tough choice. As we know the decision was wrong and the disastrous consequences of it, what would we have done? Revenge does always taste bittersweet. And what of the consequences if she hadn't done it? It put a new perspective on it. The third part of the book kept switching between point of views, from Morgan to Alisa. I had never really like Alisa as a character before, but this had all changed my mind. She's not so bad after all. I simply cannot wait to read the

    This volume was really good. We learn that there is another blood witch in town. She struggles with her heritage at first but grows into it in a big way. She helps Morgan, Hunter and his father basically save everyone they love. It seems that at the end of this volume that all evil is vanquished. But it can't be that easy. For one, there's one more vomume left. I can't wait to get into it and see how this story ends. Also in this volume, we get to learn alot about Hunter's life and past.

And we discover who was the first witch that created the dark wave, centruies ago. I loved that part. There is a thin line between good and evil sometimes. Sometimes, evil can grow from love. Read to find out how! : )

    First one caught me off guard because it was told from Hunter's point of view instead of Morgan. Nine books straight of Morgan's story then suddenly *poof* we are going to tell Hunter's. It actually makes sense, but it took a moment to adjust too. Second one doesn't even take place in the present. It is the "Origins" as it says. I thought this one was really cool. To see what the ancestor went through and see how she created something so big. I can see where things were a little rough for her, bu First one caught me off guard because it was told from Hunter's point of view instead of Morgan.

I can see where things were a little rough for her, but complete desimation is not the answer. Third one actually got back to a problem that was made pretty clear in one of the other books. The character was just oblivious to her own self. It really picks up after Alisa discover who she is and gets her butt moving in the right direction.
