Cate Tiernan has published books for young adults in the US. This is her first series for Puffin UK. She has researched Wicca and witchcraft thoroughly for this series, giving the stories an authentic and convincing background. Cate lives in the USA.From School Library Journal:
Gr 8 Up-Tiernan's novel offers a protagonist not unlike Anne Rice's witches-she's for real. She can move things with her mind, she can speak in ancient tongues, and she's got incredible healing powers. Almost 17, Morgan has had quite an eventful year. She has learned that she is a "blood witch," that her birth parents were both powerful witches from the Woodbane family, one of the seven ancient Wiccan clans. She also finds herself involved with two young men-one who says he is her soul mate; the other seems to threaten her very being. The author does a fantastic job of creating a suspenseful mood and successfully sustains it throughout, and Morgan inhabits a world of magical powers that the average Wiccan does not. The information and facts about Wicca aren't as plentiful as in other series but the story is more exciting and adventurous. Unfortunately, parts of the narrative are confusing. Several chapters begin with diary entries from characters who may or may not be part of the current story. These journal entries do appear to have something to do with the larger story, but it isn't clear what. This third book in the series does not stand on its own and teens who haven't read the earlier titles may find themselves frustrated and lost.
