So I thought this was a steal though these are paperback and the covers are no where near as cool, I decided that I would rather save the money and purchase the Volumes instead, while getting another series with the extra that I saved.
Sweep Volume 1- I never knew when I was getting to the next book in the volume I just read straight through without bothering to notice. The very beginning just pulls you in and you just can't get enough and keep going.
Its about Magic, Morgan and Cal and a few others. I don't want to ruin the hole thing for anyone but it is very good and keeps in base with their relationship and the story of Magic.
Everything is perfectly fine in Morgan's life, until Cal Blaire moves to Widow's Vale. He is described as breathtaking - with raggedy, brown-black hair that looked as if he hacked as it himself, a perfect nose, beautiful olive skin and riveting, ageless, gold-colored eyes. All the females think he is totally devine and even Morgan develops a crush on him but she knows that someone that gorgeous would never be a good match for her. Before Morgan is able to tell Bree that she has a crush on Cal, Bree admits to this crush first. Morgan tries to step aside but she has deep feelings for Cal and longs for him (yes, another insta-love book).
Cal invites many people to join him in a witch circle. Some people think the idea is kooky but Morgan really gets into it. Cal narrows the group down and then they meet every Saturday to learn about the Wiccan religion. Morgan feels intense energy whenever they walk in the circle and Cal is focusing more on her as a result. Bree gets jealous and tries to get Morgan to leave the circle but suddenly, Cal chooses Morgan and Bree throws their friendship away.
As Morgan and Cal get closer, the more power Morgan is able to harness. She discovers several secrets that completely change her life and the only person she really trusts is Cal. That could prove to be a big mistake.
I really got into the first volume and I loved how Wiccan traditions were prominent in the story. I also found it very interesting that non-witches were getting involved in witch circles, magick and the Wiccan ways. I thought it brought a fresh perspective to the witch world.
I found the characters to be realistic and believable but some scenes did cross the unbelievable line. I really did not care for Cal and thought that he was up to something right from the beginning. I didn't trust him and found his behavior to be odd. I don't know if he is trustworthy; I guess I'll have to find out in the next volume.
I thought Morgan was likable and she didn't go crazy with the whining, pouting, complaining and swooning that many teenage characters seem to experience.
I did like the diary entries at the beginning of the chapters in The Coven and Blood Witch. It was fun trying to figure out who wrote the entries and then use the information to provide more depth to the characters.
The volume was well written and the story held my interest as I kept flipping the pages to find out what would happen to Morgan. I did buy all five volumes so I'm excited that I don't have to wait for the next book and that I can continue reading about Morgan's journey with Wicca and magick.
I give Volume 1, five stars.
It's by no means perfect, but it has a special place in my heart and always will. While I wish there was a series that approached magick realistically, I realize that some of the entertainment aspects of these kinds of stories would be lost.
All in all, I really enjoy this series, and I think it's worth a try.
