Publisher's Summary

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.

Critic Reviews

“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)

Not Enough Plot or Character Development

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.

Love and deception inside the witches circle🤓

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!

Great series for young and old...

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

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.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Morgan, Bree and Robbie. Close child hood friends.

Which scene was your favorite?

Morgan finding out she is a very powerful witch.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Morgan, a super witch at 16, will she become a healer or a destroyer...

Any additional comments?

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.

Fun read!

Would you listen to Book of Shadows again? Why?

I'm glad I own the series. The evolution of Morgan along with the good verus bad struggle kept me listening.

What about Julia Whelan’s performance did you like?

Great narrator. She made the author's words come to life.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Very much so. After listening to the first book, I bought the entire series. <br/>

Any additional comments?

Looking forward to book 6 in the series.

Beginning of a great discovery of magic

Would you consider the audio edition of Book of Shadows to be better than the print version?

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.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I actually like Cal. He seemed like a cool guy and he was very good with the teaching the group about Wicca.

What about Julia Whelan’s performance did you like?

Julia was great. At first I thought her voice was a little teenager, but as the story went on it suited the book perfectly.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Wicca Series

Any additional comments?

Fun Read/Good Narration

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.

Love this series!

This is one of my favorite series and I was thrilled to find it on audio. The narration is good and easy to listen to. My only complaint is that they didn't finish the series out in audio.
