There was nothing much going on and there was no actual climax Diversity There are some mentions of some First Nation characters, but they live in dirty hovels and are only around for the wonderful white boy to swoop in and help them. It was an unneeded book, in my opinion, and you could probably skip it if you really wanted to. Here is a link to my notes. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

I have to admit that I like Hunter's point of view better, but it makes no sense to switch point of view in the middle of a series..
What's wrong with Tiernan? Isn't bad enough the series sucks as it is, and now she goes and switches the point of view? I guess she realized that Morgan's character is weak and pathetic, and there's no longer a point to write in her point of view. Hunter is on an adventure to find his So this book is in Hunter's point of view with Morgan's book of shadows entries.
Hunter is on an adventure to find his father in this book.
When he finally sees his father, Daniel Niall is a despicable sight. I had the same hatred toward him as Hunter did. How can his father be so down because he still has so much to live for. I understand the loss of someone that you may love, but he still has children to think about.
Hunter is also put on an assignment to investigate the other book of shadows entries that the audience has read: She is an interesting character, collecting the true names of things to enhance her knowledge, or so she claims. She uses dark magick to get these names over living creatures.
Justine does not believe she is doing anything wrong, and she despises the council because of their rules. She made it her life's work to get these names, and then Hunter surprises her by knowing her true name, thanks to his father's help. He tried to make her see the danger, and now he's on her hit list. I wonder how that's going to turn out, especially since the two kissed and felt something for each other. How could Hunter do that to Morgan?

I mean, we find out through Justine's entries that she spelled him, but still? Where's the will to stop this? Now Morgan's suspicions about him are true because she scried to find him. He hadn't done anything wrong when she scried, but after the fact, he kissed Justine, even though he knew how Morgan was feeling. He's such a hypocrite because he resented the fact that Morgan had feelings for Cal when Hunter was falling for her. What's wrong with these characters? I don't understand any of the characters of this book. I can't wait for this series to be over. Oct 28, Chibineko rated it really liked it.
I'll admit that I had the same problem as some of the other readers did- it was a little strange to see the point of view shift from Morgan to Hunter. This entry into the Sweep series has Hunter finally traveling to meet up with his parents after their abrupt departure about eleven years before. When he finally finds their home, Hunter is shocked at what he finds.
To make matters worse, there is a witch nearby who is collecting the true names of other witches- something which could give her or any unscrupulous people complete power over that person! I'll admit, this was a bit of a change from the previous story lines in the series. I liked this for the most part, but I felt that some parts of the book felt a little rushed- especially the parts about the witch Justine.
I waffled between giving this book a 3 or giving it a 4. My rating for this would be about a 3. Aug 31, T. Day rated it really liked it Shelves: I was so much happier with this book than the previous one! The tension feels so much more different hearing it in someone else's point of view.
And oh, how I love Hunter. He seems so much more composed in Morgan's eyes. The first couple scenes where he and Morgan are alone are great. You'd never guess that Hunter is dirty, male gender aside. Who knew he could make a perverted joke and be some awkward, yet passionate in his I was so much happier with this book than the previous one! Who knew he could make a perverted joke and be some awkward, yet passionate in his feelings for Morgan. And the way he chides himself - "Good going Niall," among many others. I'm very impressed with the way the story unfolds.
Hunter's disappointing find and new revelations on the Council; his complicated relationship with Justine, the grief he feels at the simultaneous loss of what seems like both parents. I would have liked to hear more about Alwyn or Linden though.
Much of Hunter's history is explained in the Book of Shadow entries at the beginning of the series, but I thought I would have heard more insight by being in his head. Nov 07, Sam Evans rated it it was ok. Make up your mind. Actual rating - 2.
Seeker (Sweep, #10) by Cate Tiernan
Dude, she really butchered the French language in this book! It was painful to read. Aug 22, Lize rated it liked it. I thought this was a nice book, but one of the worst of this series. I like the beginning, it is well written and you can really understand what Hunter is goint through. I felt very sorry for Hunter when he found out his mother was dead, and saw what his father had become. But I feel the end of the book is a bit rushed.
A lot of things are left out, for example: What happened in the meantime?

It seems like important information is left out. Did he meet with Justine again, how is Daniel doing? I would also have liked to know more about Linden and Alwyn, they are hardly mentioned. Also, I really didn't like how Hunter acts when Morgan is not around.
I found it really weird he called Morgan only three times, of which he could only reach her one time. If he loves her, he should have wanted to talk to her a lot of times, to hear her voice, and to make her less worried. He said he didn't have time to call to her, but that sounds like bullshit to me, because het could spend a lot of time with Justine, and he also called Kennet, his mentor, multiple times.
And then, when Morgan is very worried about him and scries for him, he kisses another woman. I know the kiss was spelled, but he knew how she felt, and if he was thinking of Morgan and loved her, he woudn't have done it. But it still happened. I have a feeling he had feelings for Justine, and he would have still kissed her if he wasn't spelled.
Also, het told Justine about his father and about the death of his mother, even before he talked about this to Morgan. I thought this was very weird, certainly for him, who doesn't tell about his private life to only Morgan and Sky. A seeker shouldn't tell about his private life to the person he is investigating. This also made me believe he had feelings for Justine. I think Cate Tiernan meant to make Morgan and Hunter look soulmates, but this book made me think otherwise, and even dislike Hunter.
He seemed so nice and caring in the previous books. There is a possibility I am overreacting, so please tell me if you have a different opinion. Jun 25, Isabella Jensen rated it it was ok. Ok but seriously why the fuck did she suddenly change the perspective? Like she seriously couldn't come up with any other way to give us this information? I hated the first pages or so of this. It was boring and took me days to get through even though I could read these books in a day.
Nothing really happens until the last third of the book. I'm so close to being done with this series. I've been in this series for almost a year cuz of uni and I'm so ready 2. I've been in this series for almost a year cuz of uni and I'm so ready to be done with it. There's no reason this series should have ever been this many books.

This is a great insight into his character. He faces the hard decision about finding his parents. The counsel lets him know where they might be. The goodbye scene between Hunter and Morgan was a heart jerker. I really felt for Morgan, even though it was in Hunter's pov. He travel's to Quebec, Canada to find his father. When he finds him, his idea of what he would look like and what he actually looks like is greatly different.
H I have enjoyed the Sweep series. He is a frail, thin old man. No longer the robust, health man that he use to be. The eleven years of hiding and travel have taken their tole on him. He lives in a small rundown dirty cabin. He begins to prosper while Hunter is there. Hunter then learns from his father that his mother died three months earlier in December in Mexico from poor health. He is devistated, but glad to find his father. While there Hunter discovers that his father has opened up a bith dearc. It is an opening created to have contact with the shadow world.
Hunter learns that he is trying to contact his mother, and actually succeeds. He is adamant that his father close the portal and never try that again, because it can sap the strength and health from the live witch. While there, he gets a job from the counsel about a witch that is writing down the true names of animals and people. He is sent to stop her.
Justine is very crafty and is able to hide her darker side from Hunter, until she preforms a healing spell on Daniel.
Daniel then suspects her darker dealings with the shadow world and discovers her true nameand relays them to Hunter. Hunter then uses this knowledge to gain control and to stop her. His reunion with Morgan was heartwarming. However, he had to tell her the truth about what happened between him and Justine. Morgan is very hurt, but does not get overly upset with him.
I am glad that their relationship with standed his journey. However, now that Hunter has learned some of the secrets that the counsel has deliberatly kept from him for man months he is questioning his place with them.

June was also the month of Solas Festival , where I gave a preview of The Growing Season — it was great to see how interested the audience were in the ideas around biotechnology and gender that the book explores.
Here comes a plug for the WoMentoring Project — an inspiring place full of women helping women. Proofs for The Growing Season have arrived, and the cover is wonderfully intriguing and clever. My new novel, The Growing Season , will be published on 7th September I love the cover, which draws on various elements of the book including biotechnology, nature, a lighthouse, and the tropical indigo hamlet fish!
I love the hint of something ghostly about the figures, the colours, the night sky of course — and that quote from the amazing Marian Keyes. My other piece of news, aside from the blizzard and storms plural that have kept us company over the holidays, is that my second novel, The Growing Season , is going to be published next year! We made spooky lanterns and took a nighttime woodland walk with The Woodland Trust, as well as getting lots of writing done and discussing uncanny fiction and professionalism in the creative arts.
