Description

“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

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 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.” AudioFile
