Book Review: BOOK OF SHADOWS by Cate Tiernan

Book of Shadows (Sweep 1) by Cate Tiernan
7 out of 10 Stars on

Morgan has always lived in the shadow of her best friend, the gorgeous and popular Bree. When Cal, a handsome and charismatic senior, transfers to their school, he immediately catches Morgan's eye. But when Bree announces her intention to go after him, Morgan feels that she has no chance and resigns herself to watching from the shadows as usual. But Cal is not your average guy. He practices Wicca, and wastes no time in inviting a group of students to join him in a Wiccan celebration. Morgan is strangely affected by these circles, and Cal starts showing a particular interest in her. Could it be that she is a "blood witch," descended from one of the seven great witch clans?

BOOK OF SHADOWS is a great beginning to the Sweep series. I'm not a Wiccan, but it was still really interesting to read about their different practices and beliefs. Morgan is a likeable character and is sure to gain readers' sympathies. It should be kept in mind however, that this is part of series, doesn't have a definitive ending, and will no doubt leave more than one reader planning a trip to the bookstore to get the next book.

This book deals with a lot of Wiccan celebrations and beliefs, although it is not immediately clear whether the author is in support of it or not.
