Review: Sweep; Volume 5 by Cate Tiernan

Sweep: Volume 5 (Sweep, #13-15)
Includes:
Book 13 - Reckoning
Book 14 - Full Circle
Book 15 - Night's Child
The final Sweep collection! Morgan Rowlands is a blood witch - the last of an unbroken line of ancient and powerful witches. Though her magick is strong and she has done things that others could never dream of, even she cannot begin to explain how different she truly is. And though her soulmate - her one true love - Hunter supports her, he can never understand what it is like. But there is another who knows, more than anyone else, just what Morgan is going through . . .

Shona's review 5 of 5 stars

I cant begin to tell you how sad I am that this series has come to a close. I have read other series that have as many books in them as this one and they have sometimes felt incredibly long winded and could easily have been several books shorter. But this series? I feel like I could read about Morgans world forever and it still wouldn't be enough. 

In Reckoning we learn more about Alisa, her struggles at home, her struggles with her powers and her discovery of a whole other family that she nothing off. In many ways Alisa's is very much like Morgan, but there is a uniqueness to her that allows Tiernan to explore Alisa's story fully without feeling like she is drawing from Morgans story. Alisa has her own history to uncover, and while she may not be happy about being a blood witch she finds a way to come to terms with it.

In Full Circle Morgan comes up against a foe from her past, this time haunting her in her dreams. As is typical of the Morgan we have come to know and love she doesn't take this lying down. She finds the strength within her, with the help of her Wiccan friends, and fights back, emerging stronger than she was before.

Nights Child starts a few years after the events of Full Circle before jumping 15 years into Morgans story. We find Morgan working with some of the original members of her birth mothers coven Belwicket, members who had managed to flee the dark wave that had sought them out. This story is told from both Morgans point of view and that of her daughter Moira. Once again Morgan is faced with dark Magick being used against her and her coven, with the help of her daughter they must work out who is responsible. I'm not gonna lie, there was so many feels in this book that I cried many a time, both happy and sad tears. So bring tissues.
