Format: Paperback
This is the first of Cate Tiernan's Wicca series also published originally under the series title Sweep. Unlike most of the teen witch books that flooded the market after the success of Charmed this is a keeper. The main character Morgan Rowlands is your typical 16 year old girl. She's good at maths, fiercely protective of her friends and family, shy and thinks of herself as nothing special in the looks department, until Cal, a charismatic attractive senior, transfers into her school. Morgan is instantly drawn to him, unfortunately for her, her best friend Bree wants Cal too. Bree is everything Morgan is not; confident, beautiful and all too aware of her appeal to boys.
Cal is wiccan and when he holds a party he quickly embroils not only Morgan and Bree but a wide circle of other teenagers into Wicca the religion of witches. Will Morgan and Bree's friendship be strong enough to withstand magick and jealousy?
What elevates this above standard teen fare is the beautiful and realistic portrayal of high school life in a small town. Morgan is a very sympathetic character, but Tiernan also manages to make even the secondary characters come alive. There is no Dawson's Creek speechifying in this, yet she still manages to make the characters believable.
Morgan has a great deal of raw talent for Wicca which surprises, frightens and delights her in turns. This is a great series which will have great appeal to older teenagers and anyone who likes a good supernatural yarn. Tiernan takes a few liberties with Wicca but for the most part this is a very faithful depictment of one of the most misunderstood religions. Tiernan also has a new series out called Balefire which is worth a read.

This book is brilliant. The series is based on 16 year old Morgan Rowlands, and how she comes into contact with Wicca through Cal, a serious hottie. Because of Wicca, she discovers things about hersself that she hadnt believed possible, and her life is turned upside down, whilst also becoming the happiest time of her life. This series (14 books and 1 super special) is fantastic, I would strongly advise reading them, but beware, dont believe all you read.

Morgan always believed that she was the plain one of her and her best friend Bree. But then Bree takes her along to a party thrown by the hot new senior Cal Blaire. Morgan falls in love with him on sight but will he ever be hers? She finds herself taking an interest in magick and so does Bree. As Morgan falls deeper and deeper into the well of magick and love...will she also come across hate?
I would reccomend these books to anyone who is over 11. They have a different story to most other books and they still manage to be fantastic. They all contain love, hate, betrayal, misery and a whole load of kick-ass magick. Enjoy reading them!

I thought this book was great; a really good beginning to a line of stories. I think that the Wicca series would be better sutied for people who are interested in Wicca or Witchcraft. But nevertheless this was a good story. I reccommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good story.

Format: Paperback
Cate Tieran has truely outdone herself in this book, Wicca:Book of shadows. The story tells of a 16 year old girl called Morgan Rowlands, who comes to school to meet the hot new guy, Cal. In the story Cal brings a group of compeletly different people together to teach them about Wicca, the religion of witches. Morgan and her best friend, Bree, both begin to have feelings for Cal. This story is told in Morgans point of view, and at the beginning of each chapter there is a short diary entry by her, or Cal. Morgan begins to feel that Wicca is somehow a part of her. This book is amazing and full of emotions and details, creating a perfect image in the readers eye. Throughout the whole book I could see in my mind the whole thing! I'd reccomend buying this book to anyone of any age, although teenage girls might prefer it!

Format: Paperback
All 15 books in this series are fantasic, once you pick them up you won't want to put them down until you have read every last one. I recommended them to my husbands younger sister (she is 12) and a very 'reluctant reader'. Upon reading the first one she was hooked and sped through the rest of the series in a matter of weeks.

These books on the whole portray an accurate depiction as what being wiccan is about. There is abviously some artisic license, as what work of fiction would be complete without it. I myself have lived as a practicing witch for 9 years and found the descriptions of the festivals ect to be very accurate.

This excellent book blew me away, and I couldn't put it down! It focuses around Morgan, who thinks that Witchcraft is comical when her best friend Bree, takes her to a meeting of Witches. Morgan soon realises that there is more to her that meets the eye, when she meets an attractive boy named Cal, a witch, who takes an interest in her. He introduces her to the world of Witchcraft, and she begins to think that she may have power, when she starts to fell strange whenever the circle meets. With a great plot and a perfect ending, this book is a must have for any teen!!
