Author: Cate Tiernan

Type: Young Adult Paranormal
Morgan has battled great evil and found great joy since discovering Wicca and
her own inner magick. She's come to terms with her heritage and learnt to
balance the magickal aspects of her life with the mundane. Now she is looking
forward to a bright future. So when Morgan begins having nightmares she ignores
them at first. But when Morgan realises that she has been sleepwalking she
realises that some dangers from her past aren't as defeated as she
This is the fourteenth book in the Wicca series (which began
with Book of Shadows) and returns to Morgan as a narrator although this role is once
again shared, this time with Hunter. It is interesting that the narrative is
shared by a couple as it gives additional insight into the romance angle, but
also Morgan and Hunter are beginning to formulate their future plans which gives
the book a sense of movement.
Morgan's nightmares are an ideal way to
build the tension in the book, of which there is a steadly building amount from
the start through to the shocking conclusion. There are many twists and turns
and it is interesting to see just how deadly something so mundane as a nightmare
can become when magick is introduced. Even Morgan herself initially dismisses
the danger as just another nightmare. Instead the danger grows out of sight
until lives are threatened and life-altering choices must be made.
liked how Morgan and Hunter are looking to the future. This is the last book
before a large time jump and so it is great to see them deciding what their
individual paths will be. It also impacts their relationship in a realistic way
as most couples will eventually have to deal with the possibility of separate
futures and whether their relationship is strong enough to survive. As it is, it
is fascinating to see how Hunter brings Morgan to an unusual situation and helps
further both their life plans.
All in all this was another great read and
I'm looking forward to Night's Child.
