In conclusion, I loved the series, and while I didn't altogether dislike this book, it was definitely bittersweet. One person found this helpful. I am an avid reader, and I read books based on whether they peak my interest or not. Despite this being written for young adults, the series peaked my interest so I read it.
Overall, it's an excellent series and Cate Tiernan has now become one of my favorite authors as she is wonderful at weaving her stories as her characters are at weaving their magick. That being said, it's time to get down to the nitty gritty. I initially became concerned when the Epilogue of Sweep 14 was written in the third person instead of the first.
My concerns became well founded as the entirety of Sweep 15 is written in third person as well. I felt like I had been shoved away from the characters, where previously I had been drawn into all the other books and felt an affinity with the characters in the series prior to reading this one. There are twists and turns in this book that make you feel uncomfortable and sad.
I didn't feel them to be out of place exceptionally--or cliched for that matter--but I got the feeling that this final book was rushed. Whether the publisher was rushing Tiernan to end her series, or Tiernan hersef was in a hurry to end it, I can't be sure. Many new characters are introduced out of the blue while many old ones, Alisa in particular, that you may have devloped an affinity for were just dumped, unexplained, unfinished, leaving you wondering what happened to them. The book not only rushes an end to the series, but it rushes itself.
There is no more development or reconciliation between Hunter and Morgan. No serious dialogue between Moira and Hunter of any significance. One minute they save Hunter, then it goes to fighting off a dark wave, and then it skips ahead to him asking Morgan to marry him again almost a year later. It's a happy ending, but a excessively anti-climatic happy ending. You also get the impression that Iona had something to do with the death of Morgan's husband, Colm, but it never says for sure one way or another.
In any event, this book was disappointing. It would have been better as the beginning of an entirely new series with more in depth dialgue and character developement, or the continuation of Sweep if there had been another book in between, bridging the gap.
There still would have been a need for more in depth dialogue and character developement, though, even with a book between 14 and this one. Basically, too many changes, too many things left unexplained, and not enough relatiobship development between the characters.
For example, Hunter never came off as a dead beat before who would live off of anyone's steam but his own, but the ending of this book sure makes him come off that way. On top of that, he has been living with Morgan and his daughter for a year, I believe, and the daughter, Moira, still comes off as uncomforatble. You don't even get the feeling they are at least friends. Nothing about their relationship is explained.
When writing about serious tragedies, I believe serious joys are needed to balance them. This book didn't have that balance, and the series ended without it. This book was actually a sad way to end a wonderful series despite it's happy ending.
I seriously hope Tiernan doesn't end her Immortal Beloved series like this. It would be such a let down. Twenty years later Morgan is living in Ireland and about to become High Priestess of her ancestral coven, Belwicket. Hunter created a new organization called New Charter to replace the old Witch Council. Hunter was lost at sea 15 years ago when a ferry sank in sudden storm.
Morgan married a local man and raised Moira, her daughter, who is now 15 and coming into her own powers. Morgan's husband was killed in a car crash so she is now a grieving widow. The constant gay push of all prior Sweep novels is noticeably reduced to a casual mention that Hunter's cousin, Sky, continued relationships with women and hasn't had any children.
What replaces the gay push is a complete absence of men in any significant role. Hunter is a defeated and ineffective prisoner without powers. Morgan's half brother, Killian, makes a cameo appearance and then disappears. Men who also belong to Belwicket are far background. Morgan's peaceful Irish life start to go wrong. Cairan's oldest daughter and Morgan's half sister, Iona, is as evil as their father. Iona killed Cairan in his retirement home to take his knowledge and residual power, and she has killed other to take their power.
Evil Iona is now intent on taking revenge on Morgan for what Morgan did to Cairan, and then to take Morgan's power. Iona's evil organization attacks Morgan, and finally sends a black wave to destroy Belwicket. But like their father, Iona underestimates Morgan's power and wisdom. Morgan, Sky, and Moira rescue Hunter from Iona's prison.
Iona dies when a fireball the throws at Morgan is reflected back on her. Moira helps to defeat first black wave seen in her lifetime.
Moira learns the fully appreciate her mother's legendary and fearful power, that she may also have inherited. It was an interesting read with some drama, a good way to relax on an afternoon. See all 68 reviews. See all customer images. Most recent customer reviews. Published 5 months ago.
