Not very plausible strife in Morgan's home life.By The Old
PhilosopherSweep 9 is all about Morgan's problems at home, at school, and with her friends. Her once lofty school grades have suffered because she has been too busy staying alive to study. Her parents threaten to send her to a private Catholic school because she's failing in school. Her friends don't trust her because of her powerful magic that is beyond their capability or understanding. Even Hunter and other witches from the Council come to think she is doing kinesthetic magic without knowing she's doing it. I found that difficult to believe. Hunter and the Council put a binding spell on Morgan to limit her magic, but the events keep happening. They guess again that its her evil father, Cairan, trying to get revenge for spying on him in the prior book. The Council witches finally do a "rebound" spell that reflects magic back to harm the witch doing it, and a young new witch that just joined Kithrik coven is almost killed. Everyone is saved in the end, and Morgan has some breathing room to get her school grades back up. They learn that Morgan's evil father, Cairan, was caught in Spain by the Witch Council. Hunter and Sky leave town. They don't figure out about the new powerful but ignorant young witch. Maybe next book.0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. Another page turnerBy MercedesIn this the 9th book in the Sweep series Morgan and Hunter are finally a couple. Bree and Robbie are having some issues. Morgan's blood father is overseas. A new player is in town, Erin, she's a healer and very powerful. She's there to teach Morgan about her magic. However, Morgan's home life and grades are all failing terribly. She needs to pull it all together.Strange things keep happening to Morgan, books fly off shelves, entire bookshelves try to cruse her, and she almost kills a friend with her touch in the hospital. But is it Morgan or someone else. I was disappointed that by the end of the book it wasn't made clear to me who was causing all these "happenings". I personally think its Alise and not Morgan. Erin makes a statement very early in the book that she "thought there were going to be 4 blood witches" at their first circle. So there were, Sky, Erin, Hunter, and Morgan. This suggests there were more than 4 in attendance. And oddly enough, ever time one of these strange dangerous happenings occurs when Alise is around. The other situations are Hunter's parents.Morgan gives off the feeling of being very lonely in this book. Mary K is drifting farther away by the day. She's more concerned with Alise then Morgan. And Alise is coming across as the poor me character. The one thing that does annoy me about this series and Morgan, she's never speaking up when she should, not to Hunter, not Mary K, not her folks. It's frustrating, she holds too much in.I read this book fast. Didn't feel like anything was really happening, but it didn't feel like a filler book either. I'm curious if the next book will enlighten me about Alise.1 of 1 people found the following review helpful. Something strage is happening...By ZellieWeird things are happening and no one can really figure out why. Cal and Selene are dead. Ciaran is on the run and he couldn't possibly be making them happen from how far away he is... so naturally, everyone starts blaming Morgan. She's powerful, she uninitiated... maybe she's causing these things to happen without knowing it.Hunter brings someone to help Morgan learn more about her powers and how to control them. She starts tutoring Morgan as soon as she gets there.The story shifts, suddenly we're aware of what Alisa is thinking, of her plans to write an article to "warn" people of this "strange magick" being practiced. Honestly, this whole part annoyed me. Alisa hasn't been in the coven long enough and she was the youngest of all the members. I was convinced that Alisa had something to do with all of the "accidents" since every time they happened, Alisa was around.As much as I love Sweep, I felt this book was a hassle to get through. Now that Cal and Selene are gone, I just feel that the story has lost its edge. Doesn't mean I hated the book or that I'll stop reading the series, that's just how this particular book made me feel. Morgan has been so involved in the world of magick that her parents are furious with her for neglecting school. And now the members of her coven are being persecuted. Morgan is falling to pieces. How can she find the strength she so desperately needs? From School Library JournalGrade 9 Up-Here, Morgan is out of control-and just when things seem to be settling down. Even though she is a powerful witch, her newbie status makes the magick difficult to control. Violent episodes appear to follow her, and her friends think the events are her doing. But are they? Could Morgan's biological father really be the cause of the dark magick? Or is there another powerful witch who is blind to her own power? Characters continue to develop and the thrilling action continues to move the series along nicely. Especially good are the passages involving Morgan's family. Her parents' reluctance to accept their daughter's new religion is a realistic addition. Still confusing, however, are the mysterious diary entries circa 1971. Some of their content mirrors Morgan's struggles, but readers may not be able to reconcile the diary's presence within the text itself. Still, it does help sustain the overall foreboding mood. This ninth entry is too involved to stand alone, but fans of the series will enjoy it.Elaine Baran Black, Gwinnett County Public Library, Lawrenceville, GACopyright 2002 Cahners Business Information, Inc.About the AuthorCate Tiernan lives in Durham, North Carolina.
