raised as a blood witch and follow her adventures as the progeny of one of the most powerful blood witches the Seven Great Clans have ever known This book was smooth and easy to get through, with lots of different reasons to keep reading in a hungry fashion It ties everything together nicely and was written in a way that when people who haven t read the first fourteen books before, can easily catch up and still understand what s going on It s definitely an incentive to read the prequels as well.I found myself flying through the book simply so that I would know if Hunter was really alive I didn t

found myself flying through the book simply so that I would know if Hunter was really alive I didn t realize how much I loved his character And Killian how ironic of him to show up out of nowhere and drop a bombshell on the family I adore his tactics I wish he would have been in the storyline a lotthan he actually was, but he was the catalyst to the important aspects of the rest of the plot So much drama I liked that when it was Moira s point of view, she wasn t such a baby like Alisa was She was emotional, but it wasof a focused angst and intense, like Hunter s brooding moods And poor Morgan Been through hell and back, but still badass and drinking diet coke I love it A good end to a wonderfully magickal series Today s review is on Night s Child by Cate TiernanNight s Child is the

This leaves Morgan t Today s review is on Night s Child by Cate TiernanNight s Child is the special edition installment in Tiernan s Sweep series and receives two thumbs up.Four years have passed since the last book and Morgan and Hunter are still together and in love, though they don t get to see each other very often Morgan is busy rebuilding the Belwicket coven that her mother was in, and Hunter is busy with setting up the New Charter a newer andevolved version of the Witches Council This leaves Morgan to making the most difficult decision with regards to their relationship She plans to break up with him, but is delighted when he turns around and proposes to her The next day however Hunter dies is a horrible ferry accident and Morgan is devastated.Fifteen years later, we meet Morgans daughter Moira Her life seems to mirror that of Morgans when she falls in love with a handsome young man who s mother is suspected of using dark magick Strange things are beginning to happen around Morgan, and she realizes that Hunter may still be alive She talks to Sky and she comes to help Morgans half sister Iona has killed their father and taken his soul With her increased power she has trapped Hunter on a deserted island for the last 16 years and it s up to Morgan, Sky, and Moira to rescue him Once found, Hunter is surprised to find that Moira is in fact his daughter And though Moira is confused, she sees and actually feels the love pouring from Hunter to her mother.Moira was fated by the Goddess to be born, she destroyed the dark wave heading towards Belwicket and her home with the help of her boyfriend Ian, her mom, Sky, and hunter along with members of the Belwicket coven.Things settle down a few days after the destruction of the dark wave, and low and behold Hunter once again proposes to Morgan and she says yes again Everyone is happy and the all live Happily Ever After.Though some of the books received low stars, the series as a whole was enjoyable I think many YA readers would enjoy the series and I highly recommend it Love is expressed through mutual respect and trust, not through sex A welcome change from other YA books I have to give this 4.5 of 5 stars Excellent job Cate 4.5 stars.Finally, after beginning this series back when I was in my teens, I have completed the Wicca Sweep series And honestly, I was so pleasantly surprised by this book, because it really grabbed a hold of me and made me feel ALL OF THE FEELS.This book takes place around 20 years after the previous installment, and follows a now adult Morgan who is living in Ireland with her daughter Moira She has gone through some absolutely horrible and tragic events in her life up until that point, and 4.5 stars.Finally, after beginning this series back when I was in my teens, I have

years after the previous installment, and follows a now adult Morgan who is living in Ireland with her daughter Moira She has gone through some absolutely horrible and tragic events in her life up until that point, and just at the point where she is feeling safe, her home and family are threatened once again as they were when she was a teenager in America The book is told from alternating perspectives as many of the books in the series are, this time going between adult Morgan and her 15 year old daughter Moira Moira s life is beginning to mirror Morgan s own teen years, and this scares the hell out of her.This book had it all it was about twice the length of the other books in the series, which usually sit around 190 pages each It not only had a whole host of new characters, but beloved characters from the series returned, namely Sky and Killian And I couldn t believe how emotional I got while reading this I was struggling to hold back tears and was pretty unsuccessful tbh for a lot of the first half of the book, and I could feel my heart hurting along with Morgan s for everything that had happened to hear and everything that was happening now I felt that Tiernan also did a much better job of balancing the pacing of this book, and the extra pages definitely helped in this There was a lot of emotion as I said, but also a lot of action, and none of it felt rushed Now let s be honest, in terms of the quality of writing of this book, it s probablyof a 4 it s a YA series after all, not a wondrous example of english literature , but it deserves a 4.5 star rating for me, not only due to how much I enjoyed it, but also because of how emotionally tied I am to this series as a whole It won t be for everyone particularly if you don t have a nostalgic connection of having read most of it as a teen like I did , but it is for sure a series I will continue to return to throughout my life, again and again A wonderful ending, if I do say so myself I ve read this entire sweep series many times over again It never gets old Morgan and her friends, Bree and Robby, go through highschool life together, while the girls are fighting over the newcomer Cal Blaire The two teens find themselves ex best friends when Cal chooses Morgan over Bree Cal brings morgan and other people from the school together to form a coven, to learn and practice Wicca Morgan soon realizes, with Cal s help, that she s a bloodwitch, and along with this new information I ve read this entire sweep series many times over again It never gets old Morgan and her friends, Bree and

thrown into a whole new world of magick, lies, betrayal, and friendship Ties are broken, and renewed, and a pattern seems to form When ever things start going right, Morgan discovers something new, which sends her back into confusion and deception Her murin betha dan, Cal s half brother, starts out as an enemy to her and Cal She belives he s lieing to her, and Cal is telling the truth But as ussual, things are not always as they seem Morgan s life is entwined with others in this insipiring, seductive, and addictive series It s an all nighter, and you wont want to put any of the books down until you re done I HATE MY COMPUTER I had written a beautiful review for the whole sweep series and then my computer decided to delete it all and do some crazy thing where it all disappeared and wasn

then my computer decided to delete it all and do some crazy thing where it all disappeared and wasn t saved THANKS COMPUTER Maybe I ll try again later.EDIT trying again now.Well, SWEEP was a magical pun intended series that swept another pun intended me off my feet.It revolves around 16 year old Morgan Rowlands, who learns about the beauty and the darkness involved in Wiccan Magick I immediately liked Morgan after only the first book, with her strong will and independence She was a great older sister and a great friend She was confident and okay with the fact her younger sister was prettier and curvier And she was vulnerable to love and life woes Over the fifteen books that make up SWEEP, Morgan becamethan a character to me It might sound silly but I quickly grew to care about her and her well being She became like a friend to me I felt like I stood next to her when she found out devastating news about her heritage I felt my heart ache when she found out she had been betrayed I wanted to cry with her when her heart was broken and tell her she could lean on my shoulder if she needed it I feel like Morgan is the character every author wishes to dream up, in the sense that she s real in every normal teenager way and yet, unreal all at the same time Morgan also deals with some subjects that a lot of young people, or maybe just people in general, deal with on a daily basis Her parents and sister are not accepting of Wicca at all They are Catholics and believe that is the only way But Morgan tells them over and over that it was not something she has chosen Wicca is just who she is For anyone who has ever felt unaccepted which might just be all of us at one time or another will feel connected to Morgan in this way.She also fights a battle, almost daily, of choosing between light and dark And though I think its safe to say we don t all practice a form of Magick where the dark side is constantly begging us to join it, we all have a good side and a not so good side And we all have to decide if we are going to do the right thing, or the not right thing It may be some small instance like deciding whether or not to fib to your best friend that you indeed like her new hairstyle But we all make these choices at some point in time and I really felt for Morgan in her decision making She had to constantly remind herself that she chose good That the alluring dark side had no pull, no reward for her She had to remain confident and strong no matter how many times she was knocked down and it was A LOT , and continue the fight None of our lives might be that dramatic but isn t it great to see someone, and a young, teenage girl no less, never give up Doesn t that give you some hope for your life where you have no dark witches, or backstabbing best friends, or even an evil dark force called a dark wave after you Doesn t it make your life seem a little brighter Maybe that s why I read Maybe that s why I loved this series so much Certain books always seem to come into my life to teach me something or make me see something that I didn t before, always at the certain time I need them to.Cate Tiernan s writing was another reason I loved this series so much It was straightforward and concise, but also beautiful in her descriptions I ve never read someone describe Magick the way she does Whenever Morgan was getting wrapped up in a Circle, I felt like I was there That I was spinning with them and could feel the air around me moving I could see the light and the energy that Morgan saw and felt It was all so precise that I felt like I must have pictured EXACTLY what Cate Tiernan pictured when she wrote it Her writing also had a wonderful flow to it that made the reading go by quickly I keep wanting to say that it was simple, but simple is not the right word for it at all.So all in all, I guess you can see that I loved this series very much It will always have a place in my heart and I look forward to the day when I will start again from the beginning, moving all the way through to the end, dredging up all my fond and familiar feelings, just like catching up with an old friend This is by far my favourite book in the Sweep series,

After many years of peace, weird things are happening around Morgan and her coven, leading her to believe that someone is out to get them Her and others must find a solution Simple plot but unbelievable long, in comparison to the rest of the books The plot itself isn t exactly bad, but it s not very interesting or unique It s basically the same song and dance Morgan has been doing previously This time with the added bonus of her daughter There is a myriad of reasons why the plot in this story just wasn t good I think a big reason is because it s so lackluster Morgan has been over this plot again and again, just with different antagonists and different problems Underneath it all, they re all the same The plot of the last book in this series was a watered down fizzle instead of a bang Writing Night s Child isn t in first person POV, yay That s about the only positive thing I can really say about the writing Things were extremely predictable and the writing continued to embody the wrongs of show, don t tell I can admit that the writing isn t all that terrible We re never sucked into any long soliloquies or anything boring like that There is a lot of time Morgan spends on thinking about things, but it never gets too dull The writing is alright You get used to it quickly but it s nothing overly good CharactersMoira, Morgan s daughter, is our new qausi protagonist, and yet she is not really her own character She s Morgan 1.2 She s not even a new version she is literally Morgan, but updated sort of Every moronic thing Morgan has done, the na vet Morgan had, all of that is in Moira I didn t like Morgan as a teenager, why exactly would I like the exact same version of her Hint I don t There was nothing redeeming about Moira because she wasn t even really a character to me.Morgan I actually liked a little bit, now that she s apparently grown out of her stupidity She s much smarter than her teenage counterpart, but in a way that shows that she s gained the common sense she should have had in the previous books She s fierce and relentless, and I absolutely loved it Still, after spending fourteen books with her as a teenager, I m afraid her character can t really be redeemed for me after spending only one book with her as a badass Who really cared about the rest of the characters I was happy to see Sky but she s never really been center stage in the books I couldn t have cared less about what happened to Hunter Ian was a mix of Cal and Hunter, and the villains were just your run of the mill, petty villains Very boring.Things I LikedI didn t really like anything in Night s Child or the series as a whole It was too long and boring for me to enjoy anything that I might have actually liked Things I Didn t LikeA big problem I had with Night s Child was, even though it s a little less than double the size of the first fourteen books in the series, it s so crammed full of stuff Moira basically goes through all the things Morgan experienced if you remove the books focusing only on Hunter and Alisa in about two thousand total pages In the span of around three hundred pages The book was overstuffed Sure, it was about concepts that the reader has been learning about for fourteen books, but Night s Child totally reset where the story took place, in a totally different year, with different characters, etc Maybe as a standalone book Night s Child would have gotten a higher rating, but as it stands, it s a book that s too cramped Another thing I didn t like with this book, and the series as a whole, was how predictable everything was The only thing that ever surprised me, in all fifteen books, was in Reckoning with what as actually causing all of the disturbances in Alisa s grandmother s house That was literally it in a fifteen book series Things were just so formulaic that it was easy to see what would happen I could see for miles when certain characters were introduced what role they could play I knew instantly, for example that both Charlie and Ian were going to be love interests The series as so straight laced that there was no fun in figuring things out I ve got a whole bunch of other gripes, but one of my main problems with the series was how magick was handled Neither the reader, nor Morgan for that matter, are given any knowledge to the limits of magick, like what it can and can t do, what exactly is it, how far can magick be depleted from a person, etc For a book about Wicca and magick, we are honestly given very little information about all of it I d say that a good chunk of the books revolvedaround Morgan s and her friends drama than magick and Wicca.Also, quick note, I am so mad that I had to suffer through a bunch of teenage romance drama when a lot of characters are barely mentioned and their relationships didn t work out in the end There was a lot of fluff in the series that revolved around certain things, like Robbie and Bree s romance, and you re telling me they don t even end up together Why did I have to suffer through all of their drama then DiversityIn Night s Child there is only the barest mention of any same gender relationships Two witches in the new Belwicket are partner s and Sky s had some short relationships with men and women, though none of them have stuck why did she not end up with Raven, that s what I want to know That s literally all the diversity in this book The series as a whole has very little diversity as well Morgan has a few scenes with her Aunt Eileen and her partner Paula, who I should mention is Jewish There s mention of a gay boy way back in the first book Alisa is the only other confirmed non white person in the entire series, and she played no role after Reckoning, which makes me wonder why she even had a book to herself if the most that Tiernan did with her in Night s Child was mention her name maybe twice in total The diversity in this book has been so poor it s laughable It s majority white and, even though there are a few characters who were are in same gender relationships, very heteronormative Might as well say there s no diversity in the grand scheme of things OverallThe Sweep series is way too long to be enjoyable Maybe I would have liked itif it was a trilogy or, at the max, six books long The first fourteen books encompassed only a few months and the final book spanned a week and was double the size of all of the previous books The characters were very unlikable At the very best I felt neutral towards them I only liked Sky Eventide and she didn t have much of a presence, sadly There is very little diversity The plot was alright, but it was stretched way too thin The majority of the books are in first person POV, but the writing wasn t exactly terrible Nothing to write home about, though.I didn t like the series, I m glad I don t have to spell magic with a k any, it was a giant waste of my time, but I thank Cate Tiernan for allowing me into her world of witches and Wicca

Then there was book 15 My advice don t read book 15 Read books 1 14 and think of your own future for Hunter and Morgan Where to start First I have never reviewed a book on Goodreads good or bad but this book disappointed me so much I could not stay silent.The characters have aged four years Many books do this to finish the story and it works in most series You open the book and Hunter dies This was not overly surprising given his enemies as a Seeker, but the manner of his death is poorly written The ferry he is travelling on just went down That s it Clearly the work of dark magick yet Belwicket does nothing Nothing happens in the book around this mysterious accident resulting the deaths of dozens Morgan slips into a clinical depression and loses the will to live after her ring from Hunter flies off her finger and into the sea Nothing suspicious there readers Just accept it and keep on reading Fast forward another 16 years Morgan marries Colm two months after Hunter dies She doesn t even remember it While in her state of despair Colm and his mother Katrina discover she is carrying Hunter s child, heal her, and LIE to her for 16 years about the father I know Morgan is a strong witch apparently until she meets Colm and Katrina who manipulate her in my opinion , but really, can the girl never catch a break Hunter finally proposes, they will have the life we have imagined they would have and then he dies in some weird freak ferry accident And then their daughter is in the same position she was in as a teen a hot guy who is the first to like her and his mom and dark magick Ok some suspicious dark magick, some scrying, a weird dream and Hunter isn t really dead, let s have some EPIC battle to get him back No book series would be complete without a crazy fight scene where every feat seems impossible but happens Oh and we thought the dark wave was gone, but no, someone has figured out how to bring it back With all the work they did to dissipate the wave in Widow s Vale, you would think they would have written it down, committed it to memory, and taught it to everyone especially the Woodbane clan Belwicket So there is the EPIC battle, the witches defeat the dark wave AGAIN, with Hunter s help Though he was close to death when they found him he is still able to assist with the defeat of the most powerful dark magick ever And Moira, a 15 year old teenager, just accepts he is her biological dad and everyone lives happily ever after Even Katrina, dear old mother in law that lied to you for 16 years about the paternity of your child And we never did discover how Morgan became pregnant with Hunter s baby They did all the correct spells It was just fate It was a flimsy excuse to fill in a major plot hole In my mind Morgan goes to study abroad She finishes high school, moves to Ireland to help rebuild Belwicket and Hunter helps to build the New Chapter of the Council The events in book 15 did not take place That is the only way my brain can justify the energy I put into reading this series I ll state it up front this book was disappointing I m not arguing the whole Hunter dies in the beginning point I actually thought that made for an interesting plot element Tiernan had started setting something to this extent up in the previous book by mentioning Colm that ending his job as a Seeker meant that Hunter would be unguarded It s just that this book is very poor in quality when held up against the other Sweep books It readlike a fanfiction you d find on the internet th I ll state it up front this book was disappointing I m not arguing the whole Hunter dies in the beginning point I actually thought that made for an interesting plot element Tiernan had started setting something to this extent up in the previous book by mentioning Colm that ending his job as a Seeker meant that Hunter would be unguarded It s just that this book is very poor in quality when held up against the other Sweep books It readlike a fanfiction you d find on the internet than something by Tiernan herself.This book finds Morgan reeling over the death of her beloved Hunter in a freak ferry accident Years pass and Morgan has managed to heal, marry one of her fellow witches of Belwicket, as well as give birth to her daughter Moira The story picks back up six months after the death of her husband, with Moira going through many of the same issues Morgan herself went through as a new dark force threatens their peace whispers of secrets held for sixteen years.As a standalone book, this wasn t bad It s readable entertaining for the most part However, when I compare it to the rest of the Sweep books, it frankly sucks The previous books were all of high quality even when I didn t like them that much , so this one was incredibly disappointing to read.The 1 failure of the book is that it runs through too many plot elements too quickly Another reviewer stated that the book has Moira going through all of Morgan s issues in the span of a few days, which is the truth So much happens so quickly that it s really not all that believable very little of the plot is fleshed out enough to make any of these elements have any life of their own Moira is pretty much a watered down version of Morgan, with little personality of her own She s not an unlikeable character by any means, but the book goes by so quickly that very little of Moira s personality shows through She pines after a boy, she mopes over her father s death, she anquishes over the is he or isn t he evil signs Other characters are trotted out, but are so thinly written that you pretty much ignore them for the most part.If this had been fleshed output into 2 3 books rather than one book, the story would have been far better It s just that the book is this happens, oh now this happens this happens The ending is frankly ridiculous when you realize how quickly everyone supposedly moves realizes things.I liked the book enough to give it 3 stars, since Tiernan s writing ability shines through manages to polish this lackluster entry with as much gusto as she can I know that the publishing company had an unreasonable amount of control over the series length plotting, so it is them that I blame for this book At times it felt like I could really sense Tiernan s frustration over having to cram 2 3 books 600 900 pages worth of plot into 300 pages.If you are a Sweep fan, I recommend getting it reading it just so you can finish the series I just recommend getting this from the library instead sticking to just volumes 1 14 for the basic story This book just could have been so much better, which is where this story really disappoints you know the potential it could have had
