Obviously, Cal controls Morgan, it's not a real love, I think that's why Hunter and Sky sigils her house so maybe she can see. I can't believe that Cal and Morgan might have killed Hunter, I suspect that he might be Morgan's soulmate! So Hunter thankfully isn't dead, Morgan is so happy and relieved she didn't kill him, unlike Cal who wishes they did. Morgan start seeing things in Cal she didn't like, when her tries to sleep with her, she can't do it, she keeps feeling something is wrong especially after her 17th birthday and she almost killed Hunter. Her friends in Practical Magick, David and Alyce warn her to be careful and to ask for help. Morgan and Hunter share a mind connection and they both discover many things about each other, than she does it with Sky, the scry on Cal and Selen as well and Morgan discovers many horrible things. Book Five: Awakening So Cal and Selen finally revealed who they were, what their intentions were and almost kill Morgan like they did her parents in fire. Selen obviously killed Maeve and stole her book of shadows, she must be the Dark Wave that attacks witches and kills them. Hunter saves Morgan with Sky, Bree and Robbie, her car Das Boot is destroyed (almost) and her heart is broken, especially after she discovers that her Cal's gifts where spelled with dark magick to control her and make her believe she loves him. Book Six: Spellbound The last book was intense! Morgan is mourning her love and relationship with Cal, who tried to burn her alive. She is starting to fear magic especially when she feels darkness looming. Practical Magick, her favorite shop is in danger of closing, and one of the blood witches owners, David, has been using dark magic to prevent that. She witnesses his trail and stripping of magical powers and it scares her, especially that who performs the penalty is none other than Huner the Seeker, who is now the leader of their circle and her teacher. But it seems Hunter is falling for Morgan so fast, I don't think she will catch him.

    A great follow up to volume one, I think I enjoyed this one even more. The Characters: I love the characters in these books Morgan, Bree, Hunter, Cal, Skye and all the other minor characters as well. They're intriguing, their actions have depth and motivation--something I always appreciate. They have complete and well thought out histories that play a vital role in the plot.

Morgan's journey to discover her true heritage is faciniating and seems genuine. The Magick: The magic in these books are based (loosely?) on the Wiccan tradition, which grounds it a bit in reality and gives it credibility. It's beautiful and nature based. I did feel that Tiernan could have done even more with it though. The Romance: Another love triangle. Ugh. Not a fan. But both boys (Cal and Hunter) have good and bad things going for them. They both have dark and light sides. The Structure: The way the book was structured the reader gains insight to the Wiccan world of magick through Book of Shadow entries at the beginning of each chapter. Overall: A great book (I LOVE witches) and I'm really looking forward to the next volume!

However, the constant recapping due to the original short installments is getting tiring. I liked the diary and BOS entries at the beginning of each chapter when they were only a few sentences. I think it’s a cool idea, but the fonts are getting harder to read now. Some of them physically hurt my eyes when it’s a solid two pages, so I just skim them. The characters are super inconsistent. The author writes dialogue based on what would be clever or sexy in the moment, not based on how the characters would actually respond. The plot is also inconsistent, with contradictions both between books and even between pages. Some inconsistencies are as small as “Matt wasn’t there” only for him to have a line of dialogue on the next page, but some are actually pretty important plot points or setting descriptions.

    Another exciting volume in the Sweep series! The story simply keeps getting better. Looking forward to continuing following along on Morgan’s journey within Magik in Volume 3.

    This book was just as good, and maybe even better, than the first volume. It keeps you on the edge of your seat. It has classic, almost typical themes, twisted in with ones so different from anything I have read that it makes it seem brand new. It was a great book!

    Morgan Rowlands, blood witch, teenager, good friend. All the above describe Morgan but in this book she kind of realizes each one of those character traits out a little bit more. She is one of the most powerful witches people have seen in a long while but she is not initiated so she cannot control her powers. She realizes that she is confused about her hatred for Hunter and might even realize that Cal (her gorgeous bf) is evil and may want something more from her then just her love. Also, Bree a Morgan Rowlands, blood witch, teenager, good friend. All the above describe Morgan but in this book she kind of realizes each one of those character traits out a little bit more. She is one of the most powerful witches people have seen in a long while but she is not initiated so she cannot control her powers. She realizes that she is confused about her hatred for Hunter and might even realize that Cal (her gorgeous bf) is evil and may want something more from her then just her love. Also, Bree and she have been best friends forever but they are enemies up until the point where Bree realizes that even though Cal tore the two girls apart she cannot let Morgan die. After Cal tries to kill her Morgan distances herself from everything he influenced in her life. She realized that the presents her gave her are all spelled and therefore causes her to get closer to Hunter just to figure out her powers. But Hunter is better for more than just spells. Things heat up between the two characters but Morgan still finds herself thinking about Cal. It makes you just want to slap her that she is daydreaming about Cal, when he tried to kill her and she has beautiful Hunter there falling in love with her. But Cal is her guilty pleasure and you can tell that he is not done with her. Upon returning Morgan sees him and he tries to convince her to come back to him. But she has fallen in love with Hunter and is willing to let Cal go, but she has to make sure that they do not hurt one another. The final battle in the book could have gone on a little longer and had more detail. Sometimes I felt as if Morgan was just standing there dumbfounded as Selene threw spell after spell at her. I do not understand why exactly Cal would jump in front of one of his mothers spells to protect Morgan even though he manipulated her, lied to her, and tried to kill her. He claims that he loves her but something is not right. His mother then dies miraculously and Hunter and Morgan bail without knowing for sure how she died. To me this is a set up that their battle with Selene is not over. I do like this series and I enjoy watching Morgan come into her powers and realize her true love. But there are parts that I just want to scream at her vulnerability and naive qualities. But as the series progresses I hope she does too.

    I love Cate Tiernan's book because they're the perfect relaxing read. Her stories always have colorful characters in them that you can't help but love. But what I've really come to love about Tiernan's books is that nothing is as it seems at first. People you think are bad turn out to have a dose of good in them and good people are quite capable of evil things themselves. So whenever something bad happens, I can never guess who's behind it and I can always count on the author surprising me in th I love Cate Tiernan's book because they're the perfect relaxing read.

People you think are bad turn out to have a dose of good in them and good people are quite capable of evil things themselves. So whenever something bad happens, I can never guess who's behind it and I can always count on the author surprising me in the end. And another thing about Tiernan’s books is that they have killer cliff-hangers. Thankfully her books are now published as bind-ups. Otherwise the endings would have killed me. After reading this second volume of Wicca books I wanted to tell Morgan “I told you so!”. I saw the betrayal coming from miles away. I never trusted that person, not even in the beginning of the series. He was just too smooth and Always saying the right thing. He was just too perfect and something felt off about him. But I am proud of Morgan that it didn’t take her too long to realize something wasn’t right. I love how the romance developed in this bind-up. It turned out just the way I wished it would. Hunter and Morgan are inexplicably drawn to each other and you can feel the chemistry between them. I just hope Morgan will get over Cal soon and let herself be with Hunter freely. They’re perfect for each other. Morgan’s powers are growing and she’s slowly learning what she is capable of. Her immense powers are making her struggle between always doing good and sometimes doing something bad to protect the people she loves. I do love it when a main character struggles internally. It makes them more real and easier to relate to. I can’t wait to dive into next books and see what else Tiernan has in store for the characters I’ve grown to love. She’s a wizard when it comes to thinking up new and interesting ways to keep the stories going.

I always thought that there was something wrong with him. He definitely wasn't the type of love interest that most young adult books have. When Hunter came in the picture I was like "ooohhh. This is how it's supposed to look like". I'm so happy that Cal is dead now. I have been waiting for this for a very long time! Now Hunter and Morgan can be together. I just want to say that I love Hunter a lot more. I'm also happy that Bree and Morgan are on the path to becoming friends again. It was really bothering me that they were not friends. Apart from that, the rest of the book was meh. Like I guess there were some events that made the book more interesting, but overall, It wasn't that good. I will be reading the next volume, because now that Selene and Cal are both dead, I want to see what the next antagonist will be. I have a very strong feeling that it will be Ciaran (I think that's how you spell it).

So Vol. 2 seems to be more like two distinct novels instead of the one novel like Vol. 1. Although really Dark Magick seems more like the conclusion to Vol. 1 then the beginning of Vol.2, formatting wise I would have put it in Vol. 1.

So Vol. 2 seems to be more like two distinct novels instead of the one novel like Vol. 1. Although really Dark Magick seems more like the conclusion to Vol. 1 then the beginning of Vol.2, formatting wise I would have put it in Vol. 1. Dark Magick wraps up Cal and Morgan's relationship, while Awakening starts the beginnings of a friendship with Hunter and Sky and the mending of Bree and Morgan's relationship. I found myself telling Morgan shes dumb a lot during these three novels, cause she refuses to live in the reality of the story. Like other characters present her with solid evidence and she is just like that's not true. She makes horrible life choices and I'm frustrated with her immensely. A good place to start is Dark Magick. It picks up in the aftermath of Hunter and Cal's battle to the death with Cal the winner. If the first three didn't make me dislike Cal the fourth one certainly did. So Morgan is absolutely convinced that she has killed Hunter and is racked with guilt about it. Selene and Cal both convince her that it was in self defense (and it technically was). But do you know who didn't feel guilty Cal. Cal didn't feel guilty. Something Morgan just pretended not to see. Another thing that really should have been a tip of that maybe Selene and Cal were not the best people was the fact he lied about being Woodbane, something that was really freaking Morgan out when she found out she herself was of reformed Woodbane blood. You know who was telling the truth about Cal being Woodbane? Hunter that's who (more on that later). When she told Cal about her mother's coven tools he told his mother and Selene literally drove to Morgan's school just to talk to her about the tools and then was very upset when she found out the Morgan had bound the tools to herself; I was like "GIRL THEY ARE USING YOU!" Then, you know for good measure, he tries to kill her. I never likes Cal from the beginning. He was just to suave and charming so I kinda saw the whole "using you for more power" thing coming. What gets me is that despite people who know better, Hunter and Sky, and even her (ex) best friend, Bree, were all like Cal isn't good he's a liar and hes filling you with nonsense. Does she listen to them? No. No she doesn't. Then when Morgan finds out that low and behold Hunter is indeed alive she is elated that she didn't kill him and that he is alive. Cal on the other hand is not elated that Hunter is alive and well. In fact Cal is the exact opposite of elated. He tried to convince her that they would be better off if Hunter were dead. Does she take this as a red flag that maybe just maybe her boyfriend is an absolute ass? You would think that she would but she doesn't. Speaking of Hunter, I absolutely adore him. He is awkward and beautiful. He comes across as a bit cold (I'm convinced its the British), but really he cares very deeply about his family and his friends. He takes his job as Seeker very seriously, even though it takes a really heavy toll on his conscious. I like him a lot more for Morgan A) cause he's an actually good guy and B) because he is a lot more level headed and lives in the reality of the story unlike some people *cough* Morgan *cough*. Morgan immediately rights him off as the bad guy, mostly because Cal tells her so and some because she feels uneasy when hes around. She also rights off Sky, Hunter's cousin, as evil too. This girl does a Wiccan Mind Meld with him and still shes convinced that hes not a good guy despite the fact that she had unlimited access to his entire mind and not a single dark thought. It literally takes Cal trying to kill her by locking her in a room and setting it on fire for her to not only trust Hunter and Sky, but to also rekindle her friendship with Bree. Hunter for his part tries his best to protect Morgan and teach her how to protect herself. While Cal wants to use Morgan's power to further his mother's agenda, Hunter wants her to embrace it and be able to control it. Now despite how much I love Hunter he does have his flaws. He is very touche when it comes to the subject of Cal and honestly he's a bit jealous of the relationship Morgan had with Cal. So as Morgan and Hunter grow closer Morgan grows more and more confused about her feelings and instead of taking this is stride and giving her the support and space she needs to come to terms that her one and only boyfriend whom she was convinced she was in love TRIED TO KILL HER, he tends to blow up and become pretty angry when Cal is mentioned. Minor flaws; he's still my favorite. Much to Morgan's credit she deals with a lot of shit in this Volume. As previously mentioned she is nearly burned to death by her boyfriend. She was pulled from the rubble by her ex-best friend. Then she starts falling for her now ex-boyfriend's half-brother who is like a witch cop who wants to bring down her ex-boyfriend and his mother all while facing the very real danger that her ex-boyfriend's VERY powerful mother wants her dead so she can use Morgan's dead mothers coven tools unencumbered and she still has to go to math class. So I can kinda of understand her poor life choices, but that doesn't make them any less dumb. One of the things that Morgan struggles the most with, especially in Awakening and Spellbound, is the fact that she literally is blind to people's "dark" side, which is just slightly annoying as a ready. Mostly cause after what she has been through you would think that she would be a little less trusting and because she takes it out on Hunter a lot like its his fault that people do bad things and she can't see it when they do. The kicker is that the whole time Hunter is just like they did this bad thing and the broke the Wiccan laws doing it and shes just like you just have a vendetta against good people. Honestly throughout the whole story she has been selfish and naive. She doesn't really seem to care how her actions affect the people around her or even herself. So far Morgan is not the most compelling nor my favorite heroine in a story, but the story itself is pretty compelling. Hunter also kind of saves it for me so like I don't really feel like I am forcing myself through them, but I also don't think I am enjoying them as much as I once would have.

    Really liked this one! Stepped up the action, the internal conflict of the main character and also introduced more in depth some of the characters from last volume. Not a huge fan of the book of shadows inserts but I can see how they give a lot of information to the story's background. Really liked this one!

So i could not wait to start book 4 and i loved reading about the characters and getting back into the world.. I still do not like Cal because you can see in this book that he is trying to control Morgan and on his side it’s not a real love but you can see that morgan cares about cal which is sad to see.. I think that’s why Hunter and Sky sigils Morgans house so she can see the real cal and Selene and also to keep her save.. characters that i loved: ⦁ Morgan ⦁ Robbie ⦁ Mary k [ morgan’s sister] ⦁ Alyce [from the bookstore] Cal and Morgan might have killed Hunter and she is not happy about that but you can see how happy cal is about it because he hates hunter.. I suspect that hunter might be Morgan’s soulmate.. So i am happy to see when morgan went to her fav book shop that she seen Hunter was not dead and you could see that she was happy to see him alive.. Morgan is so happy and relieved she didn’t kill him, unlike Cal who wishes they did. Morgan starts to see things in Cal that she does not like which was good to see.. I did not like the way he treated her on her birthday because she could not do what he wanted and she keeps feeling something is wrong with cal and his mum especially after her birthday.. Her friends in Practical Magick, David and Alyce warn her to be careful and to ask for help which i thought was sweet.. Characters i disliked: ⦁ Raven ⦁ cal ⦁ selen Morgan has progressed a lot as a character in such a short amount of time, and she continues to do so in the series.. Sure she makes some bad decisions, but that only makes her that much more human. And that is something I love about this series.. Sky and Hunter definitely played a big part in this book which i am glad to see a lot more of them in this series.. Book 5 – Awakening I hated the way Cal and Selen treated Morgan and they finally revealed who they were, what their intentions were to Morgan and everyone else.. Its sad to see that Morgan is heartbroken but its sweet to see that hunter is taking care of her and making sure no one hurts her.. characters that i loved: ⦁ Morgan ⦁ Mary K ⦁ Robbie ⦁ Jenna ⦁ Alyce ⦁ Bree ⦁ Hunter I was sad to see morgan so heartbroken and fighting for her life when cal took her and put a spellbound on her so she could not move. I hated that he and his mum tried to kill Morgan like the way her parents died in the fire . The way the story is going now in this series i think Selen obviously killed Maeve [ morgan’s mum] and stole her book of shadows, she must be the Dark Wave that attacks witches and kills them.. Characters i disliked: ⦁ Raven ⦁ cal ⦁ selen I loved that morgan sent out a witch message to all her friends and that Hunter saves Morgan with Sky, Bree and Robbie which i think is amazing that bree is trying to be Morgans friend again and her car Das Boot is destroyed (almost) to save morgan and its sad to see that she is still heartbroken even after cal tried to hurt her.. there is also a sad part where she has to get Cal’s gifts away from her because they were spelled with dark magick to control her and make her believe she loves him. Book 6 – Spellbound Hunter the Seeker, who is now the leader of Morgans circle and her teacher. But it seems Hunter is falling for Morgan and Morgan is getting feelings for hunter but she is also trying to get over her heart being broken and she does not know who she can trust But in her heart she knows she can trust Hunter.. characters that i loved: ⦁ Morgan ⦁ Mary K ⦁ Robbie ⦁ Jenna ⦁ Alyce ⦁ Bree ⦁ Hunter wow there is so many twists in book 6.. This book was packed with action, Twists, awesome friendships, amazing characters and romantic parts that it only took me a day to read.. I like the relationship between Morgan and hunter The characters i hated are: ⦁ cal ⦁ selen The only thing i did not like about book 6 was when cal tried to come back into town and try to mess with Morgans head again.. I also did not like that Selene took Mary k just so she could get to morgan and try to hurt morgan and hunter.. It was sad to see when morgan found more stuff out about her real parents and how they died.. I am hoping that Morgan and Hunter will end up together.. I highly recommend this series by Cate Tiernan. I can’t wait to read more of the books in the series..

But the fact that he tried to kill her??? To “solve the problem” AND THEN SAYING HE DID IT TO SAVE HER????????!! I was just shocked. MY OH LORD, HUNTER. I loved him from the moment he was introduced in the book. I was rooting soooo much for Hunter en Morgan. I love love love their relationship. It’s so pure, not to compare with Cal en Morgan. I love the way he shows Morgan that he genuinly cares about her and loves her. Morgan was confusing sometimes. I mean I understand her, Cal with whom she was in love tried to kill her. Not to mention all the controlling crap. She thought he loved her and would never hurt her. She was betrayed and was still healing while getting into things with Hunter. I also loved the fact that Hunter had so much patience with her after everything. BUT THE CLIFFHANGER THO. I had my doubts about Cal’s intention after he came back. But when Selene loured Morgan to their house by using Mary K. I was surprised that it was only Selene in the library. I still thought that Cal was at her side and didn’t left her. Then from one moment to another Cal appeared and saved Morgan by being killed by Selene. I mean come on. WHAT A SACRIFICE. Not that he didn’t deserved it. Still hate him tho. But he saved my precious Morgan. And I need Morgan and Hunter together. Like, NEEEEED. NOW WHAT? I just don’t think Selene is dead. Cal maybe is, but she isn’t. I think she’ll come back. It just can’t be over like that. She’s a powerful witch and I don’t think Selene would have let Morgan killed her without a real battle. This just sounded too easy. Too good to be true. But am I right this time? OH AND!!!!! I’m wondering what happened to Hunter’s dad. They finally made contact and he wanted to say something to Hunter about his mom but then the connection broke because of something dark. Are they dead? Are they still alive and escaped the dark??

    As Seen on SacredChickens.com In this second three volume novel, we see the main character, Morgan Rowlands, a witch who has just discovered her abilities, progress in her training while at the same time trying to come to grip with a shocking betrayal.

I enjoyed the first volume but didn’t find enough to say about it to formulate a review. This second installment had more depth and plot development, so there is more to say. For the most part, it is an enjoyable read; however, there were times when I felt the cliché of the love triangle, and the main characters’ whining was sometimes overplayed, but that it made it a little more realistic, since the novel centers around teenagers. However, the ending was the most problematic for me; one of the main antagonists is suddenly and miraculously gone, and it seemed a little rushed and hurried. Overall, though, it was a good read, and the plot kept me going. I really liked most of the aspects of the book: the main character is believable and realistic; the magical elements of the book are fascinating and done in such a way that they feel like a natural part of the book as opposed to being a fantastical or foreign element, and the pace flows well and is not choppy. All of these things are great, but what struck me was the relationship that Morgan has with her parents, and how that shifts over the course of the books. Morgan ahs to tell her parents that she is a witch, and since her parents are Roman-Catholic, they have a hard time dealing with it. It is very reminiscent of a coming out experience, which is probably why it struck me. ​However, there were a couple of things that I didn’t enjoy. There is a love triangle that has been one of the main driving points of the books for some time now, and I was getting tired of it. the constant tug of war between two guys was just feeling a little played out, and I hope that it doesn’t continue. But, for me, the ending of the book was the standout. It was rushed and underwhelming and didn’t feel finished. Maybe that was deliberate, as a transition for the next book, but it just made the last part feel unintentional. However, I must repeat that I did enjoy most of he book, but there were some areas that I personally found to be lacking. I will, however, read the next installment.

    Love the series, I've read all the books. Can't bring myself to give it 5 stars because there are things that annoy me IMMENSELY about the writing. In each book (subsequent book sequels), the author repeats in summation what happened in the previous books EVERY SINGLE TIME. It's sometimes as much as 40 pages in repetitiveness. 10 books in I have read them all and don't need to hear about Robbie's potion you gave him for the thousandth time!!! Agh.

There are also a LOT of inaccuracies that bothered me. The ages of the characters seem to change. Cal mentions his birthday is next month and he's turning 18 (in October), but he's hunter's older brother and hunter is 19. He says later he's a Gemini. Selene's birth year also seem to change based on her BOS entries. If those inconsistencies and redundancies were omitted, the book would be solid. Even with Morgan being a supremely melodramatic teenager who has awesome powers and is so gloomy and dramatic literally all the time. Gotta say, I do love the book series and the overall theme is very creative and keeps you locked in. I would recommend reading the series.

    After reading book #4 (Dark Magick), I started to notice how repetitive the author was and how it continued through book #5 (Awakening) and through book #6 (Spellbound). I am not sure when these book were originally published and how much time there was in between the books being published but the author tends to repeat basic information over and over when it’s clearly not needed at this point.

I am not sure when these book were originally published and how much time there was in between the books being published but the author tends to repeat basic information over and over when it’s clearly not needed at this point. It really didn’t bother me in the first volume because someone discovering the books might accidentally start reading book #2 (The Coven) or #3 (Blood Witch) before starting with book #1 (Book of Shadows). But, by the time the next books were released, the author pretty much has a following that will have the readers reading her books in the correct order. People who follow the story really don’t need to know all the basic background info that keeps appearing. Now, it takes me out of the story because it’s like Morgan stops her current thinking, turns around to face the reader and says, “I just found out that I was a witch three months ago. I also just found out that I was adopted. My parents were killed in a fire. They were from a town in Ireland but they escaped before the whole town burned to the ground.” Etc. Sometimes there are several paragraphs detailing past events, thoughts and feelings. Loyal readers following the series do not need to have this information constantly thrown in their faces. Perhaps the editors of the omnibus editions should have taken the repetitive information out. Maybe it’s just me but I really don’t need the full back story of the characters and events in every book. Speaking of which, I just started Spellbound and on page three, Morgan launches into another summary of her past events. Sigh… Besides that, I did enjoy Dark Magick, Awakening and Spellbound. I have to say that I am glad that I am reading the omnibus versions and that I do have all five volumes. The way each book ends is horrible because it stops right in the middle of a scene. However, the subsequent books start where the previous ending left off so there is continuity with the scene (with the exception of the ending of Awakening and the beginning of Spellbound. I have no idea what Morgan’s reaction was to what she saw in the crystal that Hunter held out.). My prediction of Cal came true in this volume and it turns out that Hunter was right about Cal. Morgan was too trusting and too much in love with Cal to listen to or believe Hunter. I did find the fire scene in Dark Magick to be a bit on the unbelievable side and I thought that the characters tied that up too neatly. I also found it odd that the characters keep drawing invisible runes in the air or marking them on objects but most of the time, the runes don’t seem to work. The fact that they don’t work all of the time isn’t even addressed by the characters. I’m not sure if it’s an oversight by the author, a plot hole or just something the author just threw in there. I’m starting to see that Morgan has a selfish and self-centered side that is becoming more apparent in this volume. She is also using magic inappropriately and yet no one really says anything or stops her (other than a mild scolding once in a while - but it's mostly forgiven because she's so new, so inexperienced and expected to be the most powerful witch of this generation). Morgan also tends to be cruel to both Hunter and Sky with no provocation from them. This is more of a publisher issue but I had a problem with the font they used for Maghach’s diary entries (Hunter and Cal’s father). I absolutely hated the letter “c” in that font – it made it look like the first curve in a set of parentheses or a stopping point for the word, leaving the next letter or letters following that “c” stand out on their own. I read 'Beck' as Be( k and 'racked; as ra ( ked. Now, in book #6 (Spellbound), I am finding that I don’t like the font that the publisher used for Selene’s diary entries, specifically the uppercase letter “I” – it looks nothing like the letter “I” and I personally find it annoying. Anyway, it is during Spellbound that I have had enough of the constant repetition of events that have previously happened. I am also finding this book to be predictable and ridiculous. A few questions: What is the point of creating and making protection spells if any witch can just undo them or overwrite them? Doesn’t that defeat the purpose of trying to protect someone or something with magic? If spells can so easily be dismantled by other witches, then I fail to see how they can be useful, powerful and relied upon by the witches performing them. Odd choice of words: On page 180 of Spellbound, ‘Hunter surprised me by snatching up a crystal globe from a shelf and humming it at Selene.’ At best, hum is a type of noise that is made by either a person making a sound with his lips closed or it is a synonym for noise words like: buzz, purr, thrum, whir, whizz and zoom. Other related words are: babble, coo, gurgle, hiss, moan, murmur, rustle, sigh, whisper, whish, zing and zip. None of those words seem to fit in that sentence. Was he whizzing it at her? Was he buzzing it at her? Was he purring it at her? Maybe he was zooming it at her. I don’t know but I can guarantee that there were better words to use instead of humming. AH! The author was trying to use a synonym for the word, “whizzing”. In the next paragraph, the author writes, ‘What could I do? I had no experience at things whizzing through the air…’ Still, 'humming' is not a word I would have used in this sentence to portray this type of action. I did not care for the ending of Spellbound. It’s just seemed too perfect and too improbable. I did enjoy the world of magic and the events happening in the three novels. They certainly kept me turning the pages and I was too enthralled to stop reading for a long period of time. I give Volume 2 four stars.

    As soon as I read Sweep: Volume 1 (Sweep #1-3), I knew I had to get my hands on this second volume immediately. I love Cate Tiernan's world of Widow's Vale and if it were an option, I'd definitely take the next train there and head on down to Practical Magick with Morgan. Tiernan creates a beautiful world of magick and love and excitement. Naturally, there are plenty of ups and downs that the main character Morgan Rowlands goes through which just makes the book all that more exciting.

It's an absolute page turner that is all filled with excessive amounts of interesting information on all things Wicca. Cannot wait to move onto the third volume!

    I enjoyed this second volume of three Sweep novelettes more than I did the first. I feel it had more intrigue, more action, along with a couple of twists and glimpses into the past to keep things interesting. Many stories lag when a character spends too much time in his or her own mind and there's a little of that here, but not enough to annoy me. I just discovered today that there are 15 of these mini-novels and I wasn't really prepared to read a series that long, but I made it through this vol I enjoyed this second volume of three Sweep novelettes more than I did the first.

    Dont get me wrong I dont dislike the book. I really enjoy the "witchy" aspects of the book. I am just not sure how I feel about the relationships between some of the characters. I feel like a few plotlines are rushed, while others take their time. I will continue the series just to figure out if I like this series or not :D Dont get me wrong I dont dislike the book.

    This book is filled with a bunch of accurate terminology about the craft of Wicca. The story in itself is one that's hard to copy, even with it being published in 2001, over 17 years ago. I enjoyed every bit of it. I couldn't put it down for the life of me. This book is filled with a bunch of accurate terminology about the craft of Wicca.

    Since I enjoyed the first collection of books so very much I continued to read. I have no complaints, the story is continuing along at a believable and steady pace. I like how the ups and downs of friendships reflect reality. And I enjoy seeing how the MC deals with her hardships.

    Very satisfying ending. ***SPOILER ALERT*** I wonder if Cal sacrificed himself for love or was it obsession though.
