The Coven (Sweep, #2) by Cate Tiernan
I am not a regular sixteen-year-old girl. I am a witch. A real, ancestral witch. My parents are not my biological parents. My sister and I share no blood.
Even in the coven, I am too powerful now, too different to belong. I am alone except for Cal. Cal tells me he loves me, and I need to believe him. Paperbackpages.

Dec 14, Sarah rated it liked it Shelves: Yhe was an enjoyable story, and I liked finding out more about Morgan and who her ancestors were. Bree tiefnan to be awful, and Morgan had to deal with quite a bit of jealousy. It did end on ttiernan bit of a cliff-hanger though. Jan 04, Abbie rated it liked it. Morgan was an okay character in this, but most of the other characters annoyed me. This was an alright read, but there were points where I felt quite bored.
The length of the book stopped it from dragging too much though, thankfully. Oooh book 3, gimme gimme. Nov 05, Sarah rated it really liked it. This book was so great and I sped through it! The action picked up right where BOS ended and it got crazy and I love where the plot and character development is going.

One Book Two
I can confidently say that this book was a disappointment. I enjoyed the first book so much, but all of the things that I liked from the first book weren’t enough to redeem the second. Unfortunately, I won’t be continuing the series. Any previous connection I felt to the characters was gone. Instead of seeing Morgan as curious, brave tirenan likeable, I found her rather irritating. Her narration seemed almost whiny at times, and I was always counting the pages left until I could finish the book.
Cal seemed empty, like a shadow as opposed to an actual character. I lost any sense of who Cal was as a person. Also, all this drama with Bree being angry that Cal went out with Morgan Couldn’t Cal have stood up for Morgan? He really didn’t do much to help the situation, while as the whole reason for the caate between the two tiernnan in the first place, he probably could’ve done a lot.
My hatred for Morgan’s parents grew. I didn’t like that they kept her past from her, that they continued being stuck-up and close minded to Morgan’s beliefs and that they almost seemed to play the victim at times. The author seems to try to redeem them near the end of the book, where they explain all to Morgan and try to convey why they kept secrets from her, but I couldn’t feel any positivity towards them. I just hate them, plain and simple.
As with Morgan, they irritated me, just in a different way. I also feel like this book was super slow compared to the first one. I feel like this was less of a novel and more of an introduction to a larger book. Of course, as part of a series, cliffhangers, questions, and other things are to be expected.
Sweep, Volume 1: Book of Shadows/The Coven/Blood Witch
But the way that The Coven was written seemed less like an installment in a series and more like a group of chapters plucked out of a larger book. I did enjoy a few things about this book. Firstly, there is the more “realistic” portrayal of magic. Unlike the fantasy magic of other books, this one contains more of a contemporary witchcraft, as the characters are Wiccan witches as opposed to creatures living alongside vampires and werewolves and any other number of paranormal beings found in young adult witch stories.
However, this installment of the Sweep series did take on a bit more of a fantasy element than the first book. I did like the discussion of religious intolerance, that is, people who judge religious minorities or don’t allow others around them to practice their religious beliefs freely. As somebody who has personal experience with this issue, I greatly appreciated that this subject was approached.
While I liked the idea of the book overall, I really do think that it could have been better. I don’t feel the need to continue the series, so, as mentioned, I probably won’t be. Those who like non-fantasy portrayals of witchcraft in fiction may enjoy this novel. Readers looking for books which explore issues such as religious intolerance, friendship and romance, and adoption might want to give this one a try.
Dec 19, Whitney rated it did not like it Shelves: Morgan gets deeper into the world of Wicca and begins to discover more about herself. With a shocking revelation about her family, Morgan’s life is headed for a quick change.
Around eighty percent of the book is her angsting and generally being a giant brat to her parents. Eighteen percent is about more regurgitated, and probably false, information about Wicca.
And the other two percent is about creating some ground for an actual plot to stand on, which I believe will happen in the next book. Still, this is book two and nothing has really happened yet that makes this series worthwhile.
Writing The writing is the same as in Book of Shadows. Things are written, I believe, completely unconvincingly. Maybe better writing could have saved this book from such a low rating. Morgan is a little, whiny brat who has a near perfect life, yet she still manages to gripe and moan about it. She reacts like such a little child and does whatever she wants without thinking about the consequences, or even facing them! Cal, on the other hand, is more annoying than anything.
The rest of the characters are just there. It is not done correctly here.

Morgan does not love Cal, and he does not love her. Love requires time and depth, both of which is not seen between these covej.
Infatuation, yes, obsession, in the case of Morgan, also yes. She walked around with this sense of entitlement. She acted like she was entitled to what she believed to be hers without thought to thhe it affected others. Overall I finished this in a few hours and I hated every second of it.
