This book is based twenty years later than the rest of the series when Morgan is a full grown woman and initiated witch. The story is told by Morgan and her 15 year old daughter Moira.
The prologue of the book misleads you into thinking that the story is going to be terrible, but believe me it does get MUCH better. The Prolouge is so sad that it had me in tears! I did'nt think that I could possibly read the rest of it!
But as with all of the sweep collection it is full of heartache, love, betrayal and some serious magic.
This book will have you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. I really hope that Tieran writes another one for the series because they just keep getting better and better.
One thing that I really loved about this book was seeing how much Morgan had grown and what had happened to the other main characters from the collection over the years.
If your a fan of the Sweep collection you have to read this book, but if you hav'nt read the other books I would advise you do so or else it won't be nearly as good!
I know you'll all enjoy this one.
Cate Tiernan is a brilliant writer and this book shows that i hope she writes more as it would be interesting to read different books written by her. I hope there will be more and i think they should be made into films as it would be good to see it acted out. If you liked the other Wicca books dont waste anytime go and buy it now! i can tell you, you will enjoy it. I dont know about anyone else but i want a boy as good and as nice as Hunter now lol.
This is the fifteenth and final book in the Wicca series (which began with Book of Shadows) and it set twenty years after the end of the previous installment. Morgan now resides in Ireland with her daughter Moira having been contacted to help rebuild her ancestral coven of Belwicket. Morgan thought she'd left the darkness behind, but this rollercoaster of a story proves her wrong.
From the tragic heartwrenching beginning, through the many unexpected twists and turns to the incredible conclusion this is a thrill ride of a book with heaps of tension. One thing that stood out for me in an outstanding way was the parallels between Moira's life and Morgan's. Moira is drawn to a young witch Ian Delaney whose mother is suspected of working dark magick and their relationship parallels Morgan's relationship with Cal in a fascinating way.
Moira herself is more like her mother than even she herself thinks, struggling with the balance of morality and discovering secrets her family had hidden for her whole life. It is also interesting to see how different Moira's life at sixteen is from Morgan's as she has been brought up surrounded by magick and is studying for her initiation. I loved seeing how Morgan managed to achieve her goal of becoming a healer, even if certain events are not what she wanted to experience.
The only thing that bothers me, and it is a tiny thing, is that while pretty much all the major characters from the previous books get updates Alisa does not. Whether this was to leave her storyline open for the possibility of continuance I don't know but a quick 'Alisa is doing...' could have easily been worked in.
All in all this was a great read and I heartily recommend the entire series.
