Publisher Description

Something is happening to Morgan that she doesn’t understand. She sees things, feels things in a new way. She can do things normal people can’t do. Powerful things. Magical things. And it scares her.

She never chose to learn witchcraft, but she’s starting to wonder if witchcraft is choosing her.

Morgan and her best friend, Bree, are introduced to Wicca when a gorgeous senior named Cal invites them to join his new coven. Morgan falls for Cal immediately—and discovers that she has strong, inexplicable powers.

  • “This delectably dark [novel], first in the Sweep series, brings a supernatural spin to classic teen issues—popularity, romance, alienation and the search for self…While Tiernan’s ingredients are familiar, she stirs the cauldron with engaging, even cinematic, prose and sharply individuates her characters. She introduces the Wiccan material with some depth as well as with a skillful degree of ambiguity; readers will not know immediately whether or not the series embraces Wicca.”

    - Publishers Weekly
  • “This novel is an intriguing read about a young, vulnerable teenager who finds herself drawn to a ‘strange phenomenon.’”

    - ALAN Review
  • “Whelan’s narration sounds genuine as she captures Morgan’s self-deprecating humor and sense of wonder. Whelan makes each teenager’s voice unique.”

    " I read many good reviews of this series; I tried the first and it just didn't work for me. The writing was mediocre and the characters pretty weak. I didn't like the "love interest" at all either. "

    " On se prend tout de suite à l'histoire, bien que cette religion me dérange un peu je vais poursuivre pour voir ce qui arrive à Morgan et Cal <3 ^^ "

    " I thought the book was much too short. I really enjoyed the characters and story. "

    " I think my brain and C. Tiernan's don't jive. The Wicca 101 parts of this bored me to death. After trudging through the first few, I skimmed. Also, Cal was pretty generic. I kept praying--hoping--he'd do something crazy.... and no. Then again there are later books, but I'm not interested. "

    " You can't help but feel sorry for Morgan. Being the black sheep of the family has its ups and downs so I can totally relate. This was a page turner; I finished it in one day. I couldn't put it down. "
