At 16 Morgan's life is shattering. She is reading her mothers book of shadows and finds out that her birth parents are from the evil clan, Woodbane. Morgan wants to find out more but there isn't time for that. Her and Cals relationship is growing. Her best friend, Bree has abandoned her, Morgans adoptive family can't accept that she has powers and then two witches are in town all of a sudden. These witches are Sky and Hunter.
Hunter claims that he is Cals half brother and that Cal is practising dark magick and is using her to get to her powerful powers. This hurts Morgan and she tries to ignore it, but something isn't right, and she can feel it. Who should she trust Cal or Hunter.....
This is a topbook and i am sure anyone who is intrested in wicca or is over 11 would enjoy it. If you have read the first two books before this, this is a must.

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.

As an older reader, i am not usually in to the whole magic scene but this book gripped me from the start and i coudnt put it down myself!!! i dont think i have ever ready a series this long that has kept me interested all the way through! My heart was racing and it always kept my mind stimulated trying to work out who was good and who was evil! If felt like i was really there and that is a rare and special encounter! Some of the best books i have ever read and have recommended them to all of my friends!

This book is brilliant. It is my favourite out of the first 3 books. Like the other books it is really well writen and leaves you wanting to know what happens next, I couldn't put it down. The ending is so good you can't not read the next book. As soon as i had finished this book i went out and brought the next one.

This is my fave out of the Sweep series. It is so American, and damn good! The info on Wicca is excellent and Cate Tiernan writes an excellent piece of work. Sweep:4 is brill too. But no.3 is just excellent. A few turning points for some of the characters, Morgan, Cal etc. Love this book!

I have read this and the two books before it, (Book of shadows and the coven) in three days. I just could not put them down. They are so good and give begginers an onlook into the craft. I have only one problem with the book and thats that they do make witch craft seem a bit like the Sabrina the teenage witch version of the modern wiccan. But luckily its not that bad so all round its a very good book! I can wait for the next to be released
