Blood Witch & Dark Magick by Cate Tiernan

Contains spoilers

Morgan continues to unravel her past and the story of her birth mother as her relationship with Cal develops. She begins to understand more about her power as a blood witch when she finds her mother's tools of magic. Morgan can't quite relax into her relationship with Cal and the rather mysterious Hunter begins to feature more in her life. Cal and Hunter fight and, when Morgan intervenes, Hunter falls over the edge of the cliff into the rocks and water below. The book ends as Morgan begins herseventeenth birthday convinced that she is responsible for Hunter's death.

Morgan has so much to deal with! After getting her hands on her mothers book of shadows she finds out her birth parents are Woodbane, which is an evil clan. And then we meet 2 new characters - 2 witches Hunter & Sky. Hunter claims to be Cal's half brother Hunter tells her Cal is dabbling in dark magick and Hunter believes Cal is just using Morgan.

Evil forces are after Morgan, forces connected with a dark wave of magick. And she knows something is wrong with the way Cal is acting, although she can't put her finger on it. Cal is definitely hiding something, but is he out to hurt her, as Hunter says?

Morgan thinks that she killed Hunter and is finding that so hard to deal with then Hunter comes back and she is ecstatic, Cal doesn't seem so pleased!

Hunter is still telling Morgan that Cal is no good she doesn't know who to believe or what to think. Cal and Hunter do a tath meanma on each other (read each others minds) and find out neither one of them is evil.

The book ending is quite traumatic for Morgan after the tath meanma she starts to doubt Cal and the ending has such a twist I was going to read something else but, just had to read on ...

I still need to get book 3! Argh! Used bookshops are wonderful, except they don't always have the complete series. Hence my missing books 3 and 8! ;)
