The three of them start to question their self control and each of them starts to use their powers in their own way. These differ between each of them, and they first start off in a small way, and then in a more serious fashion. At the same time rather sinister things are happening, both in North Hampton and in the wider world. Witches of East End sounds a lot like Witches of Eastwick, but in fact, this is quite an original tale and, apart from the title, is quite different to the latter.
This tale works well on various levels. It is an interesting supernatural story, and provided the reader can suspend disbelief it is fairly easy to relate to the main characters. There is a fair amount of romance as Freya is drawn to two brothers, Bran and Killian, and there is a strong hint that there is more to this pair than meets the eye. Ingrid, despite being portrayed as a rather staid librarian is far from a retiring flower and has romantic interests of her own.
To my mind I was very on board with the story as I have outlined above and was really enjoying it. However, towards the end, this tale assumes much wider dimensions (do not want to give any spoilers, you will see what I mean if you read it). Personally this was not an extension which I welcomed as credibility was stretched considerably further. However, overall this was a book I enjoyed, and one which I read very quickly, in part because it is quite short. I will certainly be looking out for Serpent's Kiss, which I understand will be the sequel.

While it is a fun read, there is not a lot of character development, just hints of what could be.Published on Oct. 17 2013 by Pat
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. Read morePublished on Oct. 7 2013 by Amazon Customer
