A series I just discovered, by accident. Im glad I did! I really enjoyed this 1st book in the series and have already ordered books 2-4 from PBS! It is a YA book, and not very long so it is a quick read, but I really enjoyed it. It is about teen witches. Focuses alot on the Wiccan religion. Interesting.

A tried and true story of teenage witches just learning the craft with a twist. Morgan secretly loves the new kid, Cal but hides it from everyone even her best friend, Bree who is also in love with Cal and claims dibs. This puts great stress on the two girls and creates a major rift.

Morgan is very interested in Cal and his Wiccan ways. Her initiation into the ways of Magick are very stressful because her parents forbid her to even read books on the subject and the entire situation with Bree.

I really think Morgan's parents are hiding something as their reaction to her Wiccan books was way over the top. It will be interesting to see where Morgan goes with this religion and to see if her friendship with Bree survives Cal.

Morgan Rowlands is a normal teenage girl. She gets good grades, hangs out with her friends, and goes to church with her family on Sundays. Nothing out of the ordinary ever happens to her... until she meets Cal Blaire.

Cal is the new cute senior who has just transferred to Widow's Vale High. His looks aren't the only thing that sets him apart from other boys. He's Wiccan, a different religion than Morgan and one that she has never come into contact with before.

Something about Cal and his religion interests Morgan and her best friends, Bree and Robbie. The more they hang out with Cal, the more they like him. While with Cal, Morgan learns something about herself that completely blows her mind -- and may change her life forever.

This book was fun to read. The story was great and you learn a thing or two about Wicca as you read it (it's not scary!). BOOK OF SHADOWS is the first of 14 books, plus a super edition novel, so this is only the start of Morgan and Cal's adventures.

I discovered this book on accident, and boy am i glad i did. I've read all of the books for sweep. Its very very interesting and very easy to read. It leaves alot of cliff hangers in the end of the books and makes u beg for the next one.

Wow. Awesome. That is all I can say about these books. I had them on my shelf for a while, and finally got around to reading them. I was so drawn into the way Morgan learns about herself, and the world of witchcraft and Wicca. The story and history of it is just amazing. I really love this series!

A breath of fresh, non-vampire clogged air. I was surprised by the seemingly taboo religious topic, and plan to read the rest of the series.

Easy to read, definitely a "teen" book but still appealing to older readers. Interesting story of Wicca.

Enjoyed this book. I'm really routing for Raven. Can't wait to find out how things go. Be warned though these books are like serials, they leave you hanging on for the next book.

This whole series was amazing. I saw a lot of people saying that there was no action in this series, however, I do have to say that this story is about a high school teenager dealing with real issues when it comes to spirituality. Her "action" is based on real life. And real teenagers have issues with friends betraying each other, love interests, and finding yourself. I felt like this series and this book captured that.
Throughout the series you really begin to relate with Morgan and what she's going through. When someone betrays her, you feel betrayed as well. The backstory as the series goes on becomes more intriguing with books that have other characters' points of view and how they correlate with Morgan and how she becomes who she is.
I love this series and I am extremely passionate about it because this is the series that got me to love reading and got me to follow a spiritual path.
