Book Description

June 21 2011 Witches of East End
"A sexy, magical romp, sure to bring de la Cruz a legion of new fans."
--Kelley Armstrong, New York Times bestselling author of The Otherworld series

From the author of the highly addictive and bestselling Blue Bloods series, with almost 3 million copies sold, comes a new novel, Melissa de la Cruz's first for adults, featuring a family of formidable and beguiling witches.

The three Beauchamp women--Joanna and her daughters Freya and Ingrid--live in North Hampton, out on the tip of Long Island. Their beautiful, mist-shrouded town seems almost stuck in time, and all three women lead seemingly quiet, uneventful existences. But they are harboring a mighty secret--they are powerful witches banned from using their magic. Joanna can resurrect people from the dead and heal the most serious of injuries. Ingrid, her bookish daughter, has the ability to predict the future and weave knots that can solve anything from infertility to infidelity. And finally, there's Freya, the wild child, who has a charm or a potion that can cure most any heartache.

For centuries, all three women have been forced to suppress their abilities. But then Freya, who is about to get married to the wealthy and mysterious Bran Gardiner, finds that her increasingly complicated romantic life makes it more difficult than ever to hide her secret. Soon Ingrid and Joanna confront similar dilemmas, and the Beauchamp women realize they can no longer conceal their true selves. They unearth their wands from the attic, dust off their broomsticks, and begin casting spells on the townspeople. It all seems like a bit of good-natured, innocent magic, but then mysterious, violent attacks begin to plague the town. When a young girl disappears over the Fourth of July weekend, they realize it's time to uncover who and what dark forces are working against them.

With a brand-new cast of characters, a fascinating and fresh world to discover, and a few surprise appearances from some of the Blue Blood fan favorites, this is a page-turning, deliciously fun, magical summer read fraught with love affairs, witchcraft, and an unforgettable battle between good and evil.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing!!! June 26 2011

Format:Hardcover
This book was very disappointing!!!In fact the last few book of De La Cruz have left me very unsatisfied!! Maybe she is rushing through to get too many out??? I would hardly classify this book as an adult read....a couple of adult like scenes in a YA book maybe. I ended actually irritated that I wasted my time and money....sorry!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars not a page-turner Aug. 5 2012
Format:Hardcover
I found myself skipping through chapters to finish this book. The story starts out with promise but goes flat mid-way through. The story is just missing something--there isn't any excitement in the romance or the witchcraft. The characters' dilemmas seem burdensome more than gripping. Overall, the book was bland.

While it is a fun read, there is not a lot of character development, just hints of what could be.

3.0 out of 5 stars Prose are not as cohesive as I would like Oct. 7 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Loved the first series from Melissa de la Cruz. Blue Bloods. Awesome. But this witch series is disorganized, flighty, and the story and characters lack depth. I have a hard time empathizing or being absorbed into it.

3.0 out of 5 stars entertaining... Sept. 6 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read a lot of books about witches and fantasy, and this book was entertaining enough for me to read to the end, but the characters were a bit flat, writing not fabulous, and for a story that developed slowly all of a sudden a bunch of things happen lightening speed at the end. Not my favourite book.
