    About "Cate Tiernan"

    1. Cate Tiernan

      was born in New Orleans, LA, in 1961 New Orleans is one of the most interesting American cities, and it has an incredibly rich and exotic culture that had a profound influence on me Kids in other cities have lemonade stands we sold voodoo gris gris and made wax dolls in the likenesses of our enemies It s a very beautiful city, and the constant heat and humidity make gardens grow out of control There s an air of lassitude there, a general acceptance of eccentic or flamboyant behavior the heat simply makes people do crazy things.I went to school in New York, and after school went back to New Orleans Then I went back to New York Manhattan and got a job in publishing and started writing My first book, a young, middle grade chapter book, was published in 1990.Living in Manhattan was incredible, even though I didn t have a lot of money There was so much to do and see, and so many interesting people to watch There was a lot of frenetic energy there, and sometimes that felt very wearing and hard to live with After eight years I was ready for a change, and my husband and I moved back to New Orleans Are you seeing a pattern here While I was in NY, I helped edit The Secret Circle by L.J Smith I thought it was great We stayed in New Orleans five years By the time we had two small children we knew we had to find someplace safer to live I was glad my children were born in New Orleans I had been born there, and my father had, and his father had, and his father had and so on There was something about the connection of generations of blood coming from one place that I found very primal and important.Now I live in a cohousing community in Durham, NC This is the most suburban place I ve ever lived, and it s very different from living right in the middle of a city For one thing, there aren t enough coffee shops However, it s incredibly safe, and the community is very important to me There are a lot of strong women here, and I find them inspiring.Am I a witch Well, no Even Wicca is too organized a religion for me I m much idiosyncratic and just need to do my own thing, which is kind of new agey and pantheistic It s not that I don t work or play well with others, but I need to decide for myself when I do a certain thing, and how I do it However, I can really relate to Wicca, and I so appreciate its woman centeredness and its essentially female identity I love those aspects, among others.I have several favorite writers Barbara Hambly has been the biggest influence on how I describe magic She s an incredibly imaginative and empathetic writer with a gift for creating a rich, sensual world I love Barbara Pym, an English writer whose books came out mostly in the fifties She was a master at describing the thousand tiny moments that make up a woman s day how the seemingly small and inconsequential thing can suddenly take on a huge emotional importance I greatly admire P.D James She s one of the very few writers who makes me actually look up words in the dictionary She has a beautiful, precise, educated command of the language that leaves me in awe I love Philip Larkin s poetry I read a lot of nonfiction and also have some favorite romance writers Before anyone groans, let me say that these women write really well about women trying to achieve emotional fulfillment, and that s kind of what we re all doing, right I also just like reading about sex Anyway, Jennifer Crusie, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, and early Linda Howard are my faves.And then of course there s my dark side, but on that later SourceCate Tiernan is a pseudonym for Gabrielle Charbonnet

    1. Ok, this book is why I will never leave my kids alone. When her adoptive non-Wiccan parents leave for a cruise, Morgan falls apart. Her grades slip, she volunteers for dangerous things and she behaves like an idiot. Drinking, weather magic, morally dubious spells. I didn't like it because I didn't like Morgan's behavior, and there seemed to be no consequences. Yes, I'm a parent, and yes I read YA fiction. Deal with it. :)



    2. I'm wavering between 3.8-4.2 stars. This was a great book, despite everything. This book began rougher than ever. The typical, required repetition of info from past books gets very badly written and burdensome with this book. That said, this book is excellent once you get past the glaringly painfully awfully written repeat stuff. Sorry Cate Tiernan, I love these books, and I know this is something necessary but it is executed badly.Now for the good!!! And loads of spoilers.SPOILERS:With this boo [...]


    3. I know I run the risk of being a squealing fangirl, but this really is a nice series. I might rate these lower if the books were longer, but the shorter length of the books works for the dynamic of the series.This book finds Morgan trying to deal with the truth about her parentage- that her father is the evil Ciaran, leader of Amyranth. When the Council decides that Morgan has to infiltrate the group by cozying up to her evil father & irresponsible half-brother, Morgan half-heartedly agrees- [...]


    4. This is by far the worst book in the series. I could hardly get through it. Morgan is getting on my nerves. Eoife, a woman from the witch council, comes to tell her that the fate of Alyce's coven, Starlocket, is in her hands. Morgan has to get close to her birth father, Ciaran in order to understand his motives. Throughout this whole book, it is Morgan's agonizing torture of her being good or evil. She believes she is good by the end of the book when her father tested her to kill Hunter, and she [...]



    5. PlotChangeling is about finding more about Amyranth out, but at the same time nothing really happens. Honestly, the majority of the book is Morgan whining about how she’s inherently evil because Ciaran is her father and he’s oh so evil. That’s actually the majority of the plot. There’s also some convoluted plan for Morgan to “infiltrate” Amyranth and obtain enough of their secrets to stop their upcoming attack on Starlocket, Alyce’s coven; all in the span of two weeks. The plot is [...]



    6. Morgan's battle with good and evil is front and center in this book. She does a really great job with tinkering on both sides. She's a good person by choice, but the evil still nudges at her from time to time. When she steps out of line and uses magic when she's not supposed to, she keeps wondering if she truly is meant to be a Woodbane and just go with it, or keep fighting it with all the good that is inside of her. Being propositioned with being a spy for the Witch council against her father, [...]


    7. When the Council asks Morgan to spy on and betray her new found brother and father, she is torn. Yes Ciaran, her father, is an extremely evil witch bent on destroying her friends, but he is her father. She has an instant affinity with her brother, Killian and betraying him may be the most difficult thing she'll have to do. The emotional upheaval is intense but the ending makes it all worthwhile.



    8. Soeaking Was there a point to this one? Oh, right, so the reader could be subjected to page after page of Morgan's ridiculously pointless moping. I'm gonna read something else, I need a serious break from this series.


    9. This is one of my favourites in the series. The drama and inner conflict makes for a great read yet it's still quite a light read.



    10. Actual rating - 2.5I liked this one about the same as the last one. It bored me a few times, and the characters annoyed me.


    11. This is the book I can never get passed. I'm hoping this year that maybe I can do it. I just feel that the author loses sight of the endgame in this magical series. It hurts my soul to say - but I've read the series once a year for a few years now and this is the book that throws everything off.


    12. Okay tbh this was a pretty solid 3 star read the whole way through until the end was just so cheesy that I had to dock a star off. Like, I'm sorry, but was just super lame.



    13. Dopo aver trovato il suo vero padre, Morgan è divisa tra la paura del clan da cui discende e la voglia di conoscerlo meglio. Il consiglio supremo della Wicca le chiede di avvicinarsi a lui, perché sta mettendo a punto un piano che comporterà la distruzione del cerchio dei suoi amici, ma ciò significa che dovrà tradirloOttavo libro della saga Sweep. Molto piacevole, come sempre, anche se avrei voluto più Hunter!* Sentivo le braccia vuote e inutili, perché on c'era più lui a riempirle.* Ha [...]


    14. Morgan Rowlands has discovered a terrible secret about her origins that has thrown her entire life into doubt. She pushes her beloved Hunter away, determined to isolate herself so as not to threaten the lives of those she loves. But as soon as she does Morgan is contacted by the International Council of Witches. It turns out she is uniquely qualified to help them deal with a dangerous witchbut doing so could cost her her life.This is the eighth book in the Wicca series (after Book of Shadows, Th [...]


    15. I have come back to this series with this particular book after many years’ absence (this happened to be stuck on my TBR for a long time, and I originally got the books out of my school library when I was about 12), and I wasn’t necessarily expecting that it would stand up to revisiting, but it was pretty good.For once, the usually-annoying thing authors do where they briefly summarise the relevant events from the previous books actually worked to my advantage here (I remembered that Cam and [...]


    16. I think Changeling is a book that I like and dislike at once. I love the more scenes with Killian and Ciaran. To get to know Morgan her real family (half-family) at least a bit better. I mean it's funny to see that Killian who looks so charming and funny is actually putting of very bad magic. Weather magic or the thing with the true names. It's actually not done. Morgan described Killian as not really looking much like Ciaran but I think he got the charisma too. Though how evil Ciaran is I like [...]


    17. It's still hard to believe that Morgan's dad is on the bad side and that he may want to kill her for her powers or use her for bad. But thats what I like about this book, the fact that it makes you think and feel things without letting you know what is really happening or occuring. There is just a lot of hinting and suggesting in its pages, mysteries that have yet to be solved. This of course is what causes the attraction to the book. I loved the whole brother sister thing though wished it could [...]


    18. This is the 8th in the Sweep series. It starts with with some review of previous happenings, including the fact that Morgan's father is an incredibly evil man who killed her mother. The deals of Cal and Selene are remembered, and the situation gets worse as a Council representative explains to Morgan that another “dark wave” is on its way.The “dark wave” is a means that an evil group of witches is able to kill others and steal their power and possessions, and that Ciaran, Morgan's father [...]


    19. My rating for this Book is 3.8 stars.Decae, decae, decae y ella quiere seguir siendo un lobo.Siento que pierdo mi conexión con estos libros, a veces darle tanta cuerda a algo ocasiona un reconexión entre la historia y el lector. Siento que eso esta ocurriendo conmigo, me exaspera tanta demora para tan poca información o acción en la historia por libro son 200 paginas cuando mucho la mitad son trivialidades de la vida cotidiana la otra mitad esta mezclada con lo primero y ademas trae todo lo [...]


    20. The descriptions were awesome, love the points of view I always read from an animal’s perspective. And Morgan’s mission… the deeper insight into the world of the Council gets better and better. You get the feeling that maybe the Council, with its tough rules that supposedly protect everyone, may be under a bit of stress with the knowledge that Ciaran and the rest of Amyranth are at large.I still love Killian, despite what some of the characters within the book think about him. I love his r [...]


    21. Ich muss sagen, so böse er ist, irgendwie finde ich Ciaran ist eine der spannendsten Figuren in den Büchern. Er hat so viel verloren und hinnehmen müssen in seinem Leben, dass es doch eigentlich gar kein Wunder ist, wie böse er ist. Ich mag auch den Unterschied zu Killian, seinem Sohn, der einfach macht was er will, ohne richtig böse oder gut zu sein. Ich finde gut geschildert ist Morgans Zwickmühle, dass sie ihren leiblichen Vater kennen lernen will, aber irgendwie auch viel zu viel Angst [...]


    22. Shape-shifting! One of the reasons I loved this book. The descriptions were awesome, love the points of view I always read from an animal's perspective. And Morgan's mission; the deeper insight into the world of the Council gets better and better. You get the feeling that maybe the Council, with its tough rules that supposedly protect everyone, may be under a bit of stress with the knowledge that Ciaran and the rest of Amyranth are at large. I still love Killian, despite what some of the charact [...]


    23. I got canceled on orders for this book twice. First I ordered it on ABEbooks and they emailed me days later saying they didn’t have it. OK so then I went to and later the same thing. Finally I ordered it from Barnes & Noble – like I have heard ‘the third time is a charm’. Well it was supposed to be here 2 to 3 days. But my patience wore thin… so yesterday at work I found the ebook online. ssshhhhhhh, I printed it! Brought it home and was almost done with it last night. I had to ma [...]


    24. Today's review is on Cate Tiernan's Changeling, book #8 in her Sweep series.After the excitement of The Calling, Morgan is asked by the Witches Council to get close to her half brother Killian and her birth father Ciaran. This would be no easy task and the sakes are high. The coven run by her friend Alyce is about to be attacked by Amyranth. Morgan has just 14 days to stop it.Morgan finds a certain kinship with both Killian and her father, and often struggles with her decision to take on this "m [...]
