Book Review: Reckoning

Today's review is on Reckoning by Cate Tiernan

Reckoning is the 13th book in the Sweep series and surprisingly was a really good book.  This installment focused on Alisa and her mothers family.

As the birth of Alisa's half-brother or half-sister draws nearer Alisa finds herself feeling more and more unnoticed in her own home.  Things only get worse when she is asked to give up her bedroom for the baby and move to the "glorified closet" at the end of the hall.

Though upset, she decides to attend the weekly circle at Hunter's house.  Only Hunter and Morgan know that Alisa is a witch, so when the pipes start rumbling and the faucets start flowing causing a virtual flood, every one is a bit shaken.  Least of all Alisa.  So when she returns home and see that all of her belongings have been packed up in boxes, and packed by her stepmonster to be, it is no wonder that Alisa reaches her breaking point and runs away.

She arrives on the door step of her uncle Sam and finds a not so loving grandmother and a house full of ghosts?

This was a good stand alone book, and I really enjoyed it.  I hope that Charlie comes back into the mix in one of these last two books to come.  I would like to see their love grow.  Perhaps they are soul mates too.  Yeah, I'm a sucker for "Happily Ever After".

3 of 5 stars
