Something is happening to me that I don't understand.

I see things, feel things in a new way. I can do things normal people can't do. Powerful things. Magickal things. It scares me.

I never chose to learn witchcraft. But I'm starting to wonder if witchcraft is choosing me.

The Book: Sweep Book of Shadows by Cate Tiernan

The Publisher: Speak 2001

The Plot: When Cal walks into Widow's Vale High, lives change in an instant. Especially Morgan Rowland's life. Cal, the new boy in town, is a witch and Morgan-and her best friend, Bree-quickly fall under his spell. Will Cal-and witchcraft-drive a wedge between lifelong friends Morgan and Bree?

The Good Stuff: Sweep is a good introductory to Wicca and dispels some myths about practicing Wiccans. The book is a real page turner. I can't imagine anyone finishing this book and not wanting to jump into Book Two (The Coven).

The Bad Stuff: The girl's car names got on my nerves, but a minor complaint for an otherwise excellent book.

The Moral: Learn all the facts about a religion before you condemn it.

The Thing I'll Remember Most About This Book in Ten Years: Sweep introduced me to Wicca, a religion I knew little about.

an amazing series that follows morgans journey through wiccanism... i truly recomend it!

Reader reviewed by Alex (Tales of a Teenage Book Lover)

I don't know why I liked this book so much. Oh wait, of course I do! Magick! Withes! Circles! Samhain!

I love books about Wicca and witchcraft. I don't know why, but I have always loved that genre. I have always loved witches, and not the Harry Potter kind of witches (even though I love those too), the real, hardcore Wiccan witches!

Book of Shadows definitely delivered that and more. Even thought it was extremely short, it set up the characters and the story so well, but there was never a dull moment! The characters and the setting were extremely well written and real feeling.

Book of Shadows was a great introduction and I can't wait to finish this 15 book series!

this is the begining of the best series ever, this book is so good you;ll be so suprised at the end of the book of what happens. and if u start reading this one u won't be able to stop until u finish all 15, so go read. the first book is really intresting but not as nuch as the reat, my friend got me hooked on and now i have to go get the 12th book. this series fits all categories romance, drama, sometimes a liitel comedy, it makes cry. when ever some one asked me what are u reading i never answered because i was so excited that ididnt want to stop to answer, if you like this book a recomend that you read twilight new moon, and in August Eclipse is coming out theyre by stephanie meyers. its the same stting but with a vampire

I love this series as much as the next person. But the problem is the things they say in the book about wicca is not all true. many of the things are made up actually.
i luved the series, and wicca was looking really cool and new but i learned what it really was. i recommend this book but it is non-fiction.

I love cate tiernan books because i have trouble with reading book till the end and this was the first book i had fully read from start to finish.

I then realised that it was a series so i am now on dark magic so i will read the next book in the series.
I think my has changed because i am now starting to find imformation about wicca and start to become a begginer practicing witchcraft even though my parents don`t like the religion.
It doesn`t matter because i am now dedicated to this religion it won`t change my mind with or without there help.
So i suppose i am now wiccan i am now searching for a coven thank you for reading my rather long paragraph. Bye!!!!!!!!! become wiccan contact me

You guys/girls have to get this amazing book!! I love this book because it's the begining of whole bunch of seris that I can't get enough of!! Though I am sad because I have finished all the seris, I still read them over and over and I don't get sick of them at all.

Manly what the book is about, is about a girl named Morgan and how one simple guy changed her life by introducing magick to her. As I read the other peoples reviews on this book they all tell you want happens in the end of this book (so I will say it as well since you already know), Morgan turns out to be a bloodwitch and the last of the belwicket clan. If you want to know more than buy the book. I promise that you will love this book as much as I love it. It is so funny, sad, therilling, and mysterious. But most of all... Magickal!!!! ^_^
