It does seem to be well researched and it is interesting to see many of the myths tierann Wicca confronted. Once you’ve devoured book one, and begun the second, there’ll be no stopping you!! We stand united with Morgan against them and we too feel crushed at Cal’s betrayal.

I greatly admire P.

Cant wait to start book 2. Even so, this is one of the very few mainstream series I’ve read that actually gets the main gist of the Pagan religion. Even Wicca is too organized a religion for me.

I just breezed through this. Oct 29, Chibineko rated it it was amazing.

Tiernan’s writing does not suck, and she might be able to get decent mileage out of her story, as the books are short and quick reads. It’s like ‘Vampire Kisses’. Tiernan also has a knack for bookk great vivid characters; simple little things such as Morgan’s addiction to Diet Coke make her feel all the more realistic.

And yes, this means Alisa too–one of the least interesting secondary characters who shows up late and then suddenly got POV narrative and her own book. Cal tells Morgan they were meant to be together. Shadoss then cwte something about herself that she never even knew, she is part of the witches!

There are literally maybe 5 short paragraphs contained over two books to deal with this, which is completely unrealistic for any girl, no matter what else was going on. As such, I never really cared for the bit at the beginning of each chapter that was an “excerpt” from shaodws journal entry or book on magick.


I don’t believe in “Wicca” or White Magic but I could see how this book could make someone really want to study into it.

She’s an incredibly imaginative and empathetic writer with a gift for creating a rich, sensual world. Everyone whose lives you heard so much about in the series is also pretty much dumped here, with just a couple mentions of what happened to Bree and Mary K.
