Start your review of Reckoning Sweep, Alisa narrates this volume, and is a fairly new character introduced only a few books ago , yet I welcomed the change of perspective. Although this is not the most action-packed book of the series, I really enjoyed taking a step back and going along more of a personal discovery route, much like the earlier books in the series that were some of my favourites.
The focus on Alisa's history and background, and her newly-discovered family, were wonderful for me - I got to enjoy her awakening to witchcraft much in the style of Morgan's awakening in previous books. The self-discovery aspect is something I really enjoy. Surprisingly, I even got quite emotional at the end of this book, and had a few tears in my eyes.
Maybe I was just tired, I'm not sure, but either way it got me more than I expected it would. For that, I really enjoyed this, and I'm dying to get onto book View all 3 comments. Jan 15, Michelle rated it it was ok Shelves: not-yet-on-blog , own. Morgan and Hunter were barely in the book at all. Alisa was the focus of this installment and we got to learn about her family. It was a good story but with only two books left in the series I had hoped to have more about Morgan and Hunter.
Apr 25, Sarah rated it really liked it. Yasss this series man I disliked Alisa at first in this series but having this book through her perspective was awesome, way better than the book through Hunter's perspective. I love how all the stories are interwoven and I am exited to see how this series ends, but dreading on finishing it and not having more to read.
Actual rating - 2. I'm glad there's only two books left in the series. Dec 18, JonRaven rated it it was amazing. Another 5 star book. I'm glad to see that me also agreed with that rating. This book was a full blown Alisa Soto book, and I absolutely loved it. I read it front to back in two sessions this evening with only a half hour break in between, that's how good it was! This book is the origin story of Alisa in effect. It's like when Morgan went off in pursuit of her own explorations into her past and found her mothers tools.
It's a great read, and really makes you like Alisa all the more. This book is so rich in emotion. So rich in character exploration, romance, discovery.
It's a pure joy to read! The book begins with a prologue of Oona, Alisa's great grand mother X5, going nuts and hexing Mairin, her daughter, which starts the whole telekinetic thing in the family. First born females we find out later. We have talks of ghosts in the journal. Then the book begins with Alisa deciding to pursue her uncle Sam Curtis. She emails him. Receiving a reply from Charlie, she tells Mary K. We have mermaid dreams, and we have Sam email her back with his contact info.
During a circle Alisa causes the pipes and everything to spew water. Alisa tells Morgan she is telekinetic. Alisa sense Morgan and Hunter cast their senses at her for the first time.
Later at home Alisa gets angry with Hillary for packing her things up. She yells hurtful things, and runs away at night. She ends up seeing Morgan's car. Morgan gives her 12 more, puts a watch sigil on her, and drops Alisa off at the bus stop.
Alisa arrives in Boston 3am. Eventually she makes it to New York Sunday morning. She calls her dad, tells him she's going to see her mothers family. Her dad didn't even know that Sarah had a brother, Sam. In Gloucester Massachusetts, the cab driver refuses to charge Alisa. When Alisa meets her Uncle Sam, he's 40's, gay, she can tell from the books, and he says so. Then we have a journal of Mairin's BOS going missing etc.
Sam had cast a spell which made the storm that killed sailors. This is what caused Sarah Curtis, among other things, like her telekinesis, to strip her own powers and run away. Sarah also almost killed Sam during an argument in which a table and charges slammed into him telekinetically by accident and sent him down the stairs. He could have died! Sarah died in when Alisa was just 4 years old.
Alisa meets Evelyn, Ruth, Brigid. A branch almost hits Sam, but Alisa warns him. There are fears this is Oona's ghost. Evelyn is her grandmother but doesn't seem happy to meet her. Brigid could have been killed! Charlie saved her I forget the details. Brigid assumes Alisa has no power. Awkward comments abound. Brigid leaves, and Alisa stays with Charlie. She spills and tells him of her powers, and hunters house flood. Charlie tells her about how he made himself naked at 13 with a spell by accident.
She tells him of the Tath Meanma Brach with Hunter et al. Evelyn has been ignoring Alisa. Ruth gets injured and an arm broken.
