    This review is really about the whole Sweep series but I'm putting it with Book One because that's where people will go to find out whether all of them are worth reading I started out really enjoying the series then HATED WITH A PASSION what seemed to be going on and then am left now feeling really sad and cheated I've never started out liking a series and then turned around and felt so angry and disappointed and sad after it ended Firstly I have to say that I really enjoyed books 1 6 Some are stronger than others but overall they are well written and packed with action plus the whole wicca thing is well researched and really interesting to read about Morgan is also an interesting character who goes through a lot of personal growth and development and her attraction to the new boy in town and her feelings about her friend Bree and her parents and her sister et al are completely relatable I also liked books 8 9 and 12 and would give these nine books 35 4 out of 5 stars Spoiler free things I never cared for right from the very beginning the books are too short They're literally half the size of a typical YA novel way to drag out a series and nearly every one ended on an abrupt cliffhanger I kept clicking forward on my Kindle thinking there was something glitchy going on with my e reader but it turns out the writing juststopped Annoying and unnecessary since there is a way to both give closure to a volume and whet an appetite for the next novel without making your readers feel as if you've yanked the covers off them the stories that did not relate directly to Morgan's narrative diluted the books Some detail is enjoyable but when so few characters really have anything to do at all back to this later and there is so much time spent re hashing everyone's mundane dating details in every single book when it doesn't affect anything else it gets really boring really fast As such I never really cared for the bit at the beginning of each chapter that was an excerpt from a journal entry or book on magick The only time I felt it really added to the book were when you got a glimpse of what Hunter was feeling in towards the earlier part of the series And yes this means Alisa too one of the least interesting secondary characters who shows up late and then suddenly got POV narrative and her own book The the series went on the time was spent with other characters and the series was less strong as a resultI did think narrating a book from Hunter's point of view was interesting until his story went way far away from Morgan's This might've been okay if the book had been longer and their relationship fleshed out after he returns ANDSPOILER ALERT for the rest of this reviewif he didn't freaking cheat on her while he's gone for just two weeks in Canada This was such a slap in the face after everything that happened with Cal and drawing out their will they won't they relationship for than 10 books I don't understand why this was put in at all because there is nearly no time devoted to resolving how Morgan would really feel about this happening afterwards There are literally maybe 5 short paragraphs contained over two books to deal with this which is completely unrealistic for any girl no matter what else was going on And for someone like Morgan who was already betrayed by his brother? Completely impossible that she would have gotten over it so uickly By the time I finished Book 13 I was so ready for Morgan and Hunter to get things resolved already Since I was already pretty much skimming through anything that wasn't Morgan or Hunter's narrative I skipped Book 14 entirely and then I read about the HUGE thing that happens in the beginning of Book 15 After reading the sample chapter read it read it it's linked on I couldn't believe an author would invest so much of her readers' time and emotion only to kill off a main character like that for no apparent reason I felt so angry and so cheated and I swore I would never read anything by this author again It was only after I read the spoiler y reviews on Good Reads that I decided to read the rest of the book and even after things were resolved I still have very mixed emotions about the whole thing You barely spend any time with Morgan and Hunter in the beginning before things end literally maybe 15 pages in and the whole thing just goes off kilter from there Morgan doesn't learn anything from Hunter's death and we have no time at all to mourn him ourselves until all the sudden she's married had a child and had her husband die on her Everyone whose lives you heard so much about in the series is also pretty much dumped here with just a couple mentions of what happened to Bree and Mary K This is because they don't matter in the big scheme of things and apparently they never didLike many of the other readers here I was fine with Moira but I really could have done without her and mostly just skimmed the book impatiently until Hunter shows up again And while I'm happy they got a happy ending I still feel drained and sad and upset over the whole thing Poor Hunter is hugely diminished in this book and you never really get a sense of how awful his island imprisonment was You also don't get much emotional satisfaction once he comes back so little time is spent on his homecoming and recovery and as another reader pointed out is he really going to stay in the guest bedroom once he soul mate and father comes home? There is no anguish no comforting no healing no real emotional truth or connection It all just felt completely unrealistic and sad I've never been so disappointed in a series that I liked Because of the way everything was dragged on and on these would have been better condensed into maybe 5 6 books with a lot of things edited out and because of the huge emotional battering that did NOT make me feel fulfilled and happy at the end I would not recommend this series to anyone I started out giving this series a 3 out of 5 stars but as I wrote this review I realized a accurate rating would be a 2 Because no matter how much I enjoyed some of the books the others were not worth the time and money and emotional investment

    I have nothing bad to say about these books These are the books that started it all for me this is the series that made me want to be a reader When I discovered this series I was about 12 at the time and I was so fascinated by Wicca and Paganism and Spellcraft that it amazed me to read so much about it I was so intrigued and bewildered by these books and the knowledge they held and the impeccable storyline I read every single one and it has been a good 8 years since I discovered these books and I went back to buy them all I still read through them from time to time as I'm still in love with the story and how they've shaped my life I went on to truly discover Wicca and become immersed in the Occult because of these books I loved them then and I love them now

    This was an okay story about teenage witches and it reminded me a bit of The Secret Circle I was shocked at the way Morgan’s best friend Bree treated her and the love triangle was fairly predictable It was an okay story overall though which left us with a bit of a cliff hanger65 out of 10

    This was a re read for my October TBT video but life got in the fucking way last week and I got literally nothing productive done There won’t be a video on this because life is hard and I dropped the ball but just know I still LOVED this Will definitely carry on and re read of the series over the next few months

    3 stars It was goodThe writing is only so so average at best with shallow cardboard characters However the plot moves along nicely and is engaging enough that I am interested in seeing what happens next It does seem to be well researched and it is interesting to see many of the myths about Wicca confronted First Sentence Years from now I’ll look back and remember today as the day I met him

    I'm so late to this series but very excited to continue on with the next books35 out of 5 starsBook of Shadows follows a young girl called Morgan who lives in a strong Catholic family and attends church every Sunday Her school life changes with the arrival of a new boy called Cal who is a practising Wiccan Morgan and her school friends start becoming interested in all of the beliefs surrounding Wicca but has to keep this a secret from her family She then discovers something about herself that she never even knew she is part of the witches It was interesting as the reader learning about Catholicism I did go to a Catholic High School and Wicca What let the story down for me a little was a dislike towards Morgan's friend Bree as a character Halfway through she acts uite snarky and bitchy towards Morgan but this change does tie back to Cal's character The pacing was uite fast and story length short however did get to the point

    “I saw something last night a flash of power from an unexpected source I can't jump to conclusions I've been looking and waiting and watching for too long to make a mistake But in my gut I feel she's here She's here and she has power I need to get closer to her”― Cate Tiernan Book of Shadows I try to express only my most honest opinion in a spoiler free way If you feel anything in my review is a spoiler and is not already hidden in spoiler brackets please let me know Thank youMorgan is a typical teenage girl Her best friend is Bree who is popular and pretty When she meets Cal he introduces Morgan Bree and others of there group to wicca Soon Morgan realizes that might be to it then just a different religion She realizes she wants to be a witch And she finds herself drawn to Cal and possible him to her as wellFirst off I want to say sorry for my crappy blurb I read this book a few weeks ago already and just now getting around to reviewing it I really loved this book I was actually a bit surprised how much considering how short it is but the characters where well written and had distinct personalities Morgan's so called best friend Bree is just a horrible friend though and I hope that as the series continues Morgan realizes this and stays away from the overly toxic relationship It follows a similar YA pattern There is a bit of a love triangle and of course everyone is apparently SOOO attractive and then the main character being SPECIAL in some way This is normal for its genre and I don't hold it against it I will definitely be finishing this series I can't wait to see how the story and characters develop from here on out How I choose my rating1 Did not finish or hated it but forced myself to finish2 Didn't really like it Didn't hate it but not sure why I finished it other then for some closure3 I liked it I had some issues with it but as a whole it was good I probably won't reread again ever but there is a chance I might finish the series If part of one But if not it's not a huge loss4 I really liked this book Maybe not a work of genius but highly entertaining I might reread this again and I will finish the series If part of one I would recommend to those I know hold interest in this books content5 I loved this book I found little to no issues with it at all I will definitely be rereading this and probably than once I will finish the series and reread it multiple times If part of one I will recommend this book to EVERYONE

    This was a super uick audiobook and I listened to half and read my physical copy for the last half I am a sucker for witch books and this uick read was perfect for my mini slump I studied up on Wicca for a few years in my late teens early 20's so I understood a lot of the terminology otherwise it could have been pretty info dumpy I enjoyed the read and the characters even if it was insta everything And it was instant everything Instant introduction to Wicca to a new love interest and to a really annoying bestie Right now though it's pretty much everything that I wanted in a book I am all about this series so look forward to a serious binge of the series
