Something is happening to Morgan that she doesn’t understand. She sees things, feels things in a new way. She can do things normal people can’t do. Powerful things. Magical things. And it scares her.
She never chose to learn witchcraft, but she’s starting to wonder if witchcraft is choosing her.
Morgan and her best friend, Bree, are 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.

“This delectably dark [novel], first in the Sweep series, brings a supernatural spin to classic teen issues—popularity, romance, alienation and the search for self…While Tiernan’s ingredients are familiar, she stirs the cauldron with engaging, even cinematic, prose and sharply individuates her characters. She introduces the Wiccan material with some depth as well as with a skillful degree of ambiguity; readers will not know immediately whether or not the series embraces Wicca.” (Publishers Weekly)
I bought this on sale for $5.00. Good thing, because the books are very short-- not worth an entire credit.
The main protagonist is a high school girl and I usually don't mind that, but she is very boring. Not much personality, confidence or anything to say. The author spends too much time on the monotonous moments of high school. Maybe if I was a pre-teen, this would be exciting, but this type of YA lit doesn't translate to adults.
That said, I gave the second book a shot, hoping the series would pick up the pace. Unfortunately, it did not. Worse, all the books end on a cliffhanger. It's popular these days, but it's a cheap trick. I want a full novel in itself.
Also, the narrator is stiff. She sounds like she's reading the story for the first time. She does a great Irish accent in the second book, but it's not a great performance.
I didn't hate the series, but I certainly won't finish it.
Yes. I have already. Great book about young people finding out there are different views on life. No reason to judge a book by its cover, because you will never know what you get.
Morgan, Bree and Robbie. Close child hood friends.
Morgan finding out she is a very powerful witch.
Morgan, a super witch at 16, will she become a healer or a destroyer...
This is a great series. The only thing that stresses me is how long it took the series to become an ebook and the fact the whole series is not out yet.
I'm glad I own the series. The evolution of Morgan along with the good verus bad struggle kept me listening.
Great narrator. She made the author's words come to life.
Very much so. After listening to the first book, I bought the entire series.
Looking forward to book 6 in the series.
Well, I really loved this series. There is a great mix of likeable characters, really bad villains, really cool magic and a reverence for magic that I really liked, and a great story line that weaves through continents and time, seamlessly. Really well constructed and a please to read.
THIS IS THE FIRST SERIES I LIKE ENOUGH THAT I FINISHED THE SERIES ON iBOOK. That has never happened! Amazon, get the rest of the series on audible!!!!
I liked the story and am anxious to listen to the rest of the series. There are 15 in the series but only 5 are on audible so far. The narrator did a great job.
This audio book was great. and in my option better than the print version. I like the drama and inflection that the narrator brings to it. Also allows me to listen while traveling.
I actually like Cal. He seemed like a cool guy and he was very good with the teaching the group about Wicca.
Julia was great. At first I thought her voice was a little teenager, but as the story went on it suited the book perfectly.
Great book. I have already bought the next and can't wait to listen
Not my age group of reading material but a good young adult series. I actually enjoyed it so much I purchessed the second book. It was such an interesting book I decided to follow the series and so soon I will see what the next brings.
I thought it was a great story, alot like twilight. But , a lot different to... if it was a real book, i would say it was a page turner!
i have already started on the 2nd and bought the 3rd, hope they get the whole series.
First in this series of a Wiccan coming of age story. It's interesting, if teenagery and angsty. It restoked my interest in Wicca and I liked the story. I'll probably read the next one!
The performer is terrible at doing male voices. They all sound like caricatures of surfers. I expect them to begin every response "Woah babe".
Early on there's a scene that describes a moment with painstaking descriptions of the cinematography that would be used to affect it, very cringe. Using these terms in an English class to describe how the text made you feel is fine, the text using them to tell you how you should feel is an epic fail.
