The author: Cate Tiernan
The character: Hunter Niall
I love Cate Tiernan's Wicca series. They were originally published as individual volumes that at least went up to number 11. Puffin recently started re-printing them as two stories bind ups. I keep hoping and praying that they will do the whole series. If anyone can confirm or crush this hope, I would be very grateful.
Of all the characters in this series, Hunter Niall is my favourite.
I'll give you five reasons why:
- He is an English witch and has many of our nation's quirks.
- He is blond and extraordinarily handsome. (There are not enough gorgeous blond guys in books)
- He is duty-bound.
- He is unable to hide his emotions.
- He is looking for redemption. I just adore characters who are in need of salvation.
On another note a Book of Shadows is where witches record all their learning from Wicca. You can actually buy them. I found this out when I was seraching google images for the book cover. When I first started reading this series it spooked me a little bit. I guess it is as close to "real" magic as you can get. Of course, one might argue that science is a form of magic because it performs miracles. Look at all those advancements in medicines. In my mind science is a little bit magic and that scares me too sometimes. Something to think about...
