Grade 9 Up-Unbeknownst to her adoptive parents, Morgan is a blood witch descended from one of Wicca's seven great clans. Although uninitiated and practicing magic for only three months, she is very powerful. The 17-year-old learns that her true father, a witch who killed her birth mother and has also tried to kill her, is planning to use black magic against another coven. A representative of the witches' council approaches Morgan to request that she establish a relationship with her father to learn more of his plot and possibly prevent it. Though not particularly well written, the series is popular. Morgan must struggle with the issues all young people must face: first love, making your own decisions, and deciding what's right. The addition of Wicca, one of the faster growing religions among teens, adds to the appeal. Morgan's adoptive parents are Catholic and disapprove of her involvement so she must hide her powers from them, but their influence brings her back to the church for the "comfort and structure" it provides. The book can stand alone, but readers will want to go back to the seven previous titles and fill in the blanks.
