Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer  ROrn
When we last left Morgan Rowlands, she had just been caught by Cal, her boyfriend, and Selena, his mother. Selena gave Morgan her mother's Book of Shadows, a book witches use to write down spells and things about themselves. Bree, Morgan's ex-best friend, and Raven, Bree's new best friend, are still planning their revenge on Morgan for taking Cal. This time, Hunter, Cal's brother, and Sky, a woman from Selena's coven, join them. Hunter claims to want to save Morgan from Cal. Morgan gets some lessons on witchcraft from her friends in Practikal Magick, a Wiccan store. Alyce and David, clerks at the store, help Morgan along. Morgan discovers in a vision where her mother's ceremonial tools are and goes to find them. Morgan takes them over to show Cal and Hunter shows up. He aggravates Cal so much that Cal kills him. Will Morgan be able to see Cal the way she used to?

In this continuation of the Sweep series, Cate Tiernan broadens the story, adding new characters and along with them, new conflicts. I love how her characters never do anything you would not expect them to do, and they always do things that are believable for their character. The love between Cal and Morgan is so complex that it is hard not to keep reading, just so you can find out what is currently going on between them. This series has sparked an interest in Wicca for me. It made me want to learn more about the art and religion.

Murder, some talk of sex, and it talks about witchcraft.
