Overview

This is the third book in a groundbreaking and suspenseful new series for teens. Sixteen-year-old Morgan has never heard of Wicca-modern witchcraft-until she meets Cal. Then everything changes-almost overnight.

Morgan knows that witchcraft can be dangerous and that her birth parents died because of their involvement. But witchcraft is a part of Morgan in a way she can't ignore, and now that she's practicing Wicca, her powers are increasing. Her boyfriend Cal is a witch, too. He believes that they are muirn beatha dans, witches who are meant to be together, to love one another. But the sudden appearance of Hunter, a stranger who claims to be Cal's brother, threatens to ruin everything. Hunter says that Cal is practicing dark magic. And Morgan feels unsure. Could it be true?

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up-Tiernan's novel offers a protagonist not unlike Anne Rice's witches-she's for real. She can move things with her mind, she can speak in ancient tongues, and she's got incredible healing powers. Almost 17, Morgan has had quite an eventful year. She has learned that she is a "blood witch," that her birth parents were both powerful witches from the Woodbane family, one of the seven ancient Wiccan clans. She also finds herself involved with two young men-one who says he is her soul mate; the other seems to threaten her very being. The author does a fantastic job of creating a suspenseful mood and successfully sustains it throughout, and Morgan inhabits a world of magical powers that the average Wiccan does not. The information and facts about Wicca aren't as plentiful as in other series but the story is more exciting and adventurous. Unfortunately, parts of the narrative are confusing. Several chapters begin with diary entries from characters who may or may not be part of the current story. These journal entries do appear to have something to do with the larger story, but it isn't clear what. This third book in the series does not stand on its own and teens who haven't read the earlier titles may find themselves frustrated and lost.-Elaine Baran Black, Gwinnett County Public Library, Lawrenceville, GA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

I really like this series and I enjoyed the book. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because the description gave away part of the suspense.
