They are witches, but have been forbidden to use their powers. Yet, those constraints seem to have become too much lately. Their spells and innocent magic might cause more harm then good though, especially when some odd occurrences and attacks begin happening around town and all of it seems to be magic related.

I just think this is the way she writes and has gotten used to it in her young adult series. This, combined with the oddity that was the Beauchamp women just sealed the dislike for me.

The Beauchamp Family Series

The timing of this book just wore on me and any kind of intensity was lost in the mind-numbing descriptors and abstract scene establishing. I will not be reading further in the series.

This is an adult novel and there are descriptive sex scenes. View all 6 comments.

I had to write a review for this book based primarily on the fact that there are so many bad reviews out there on it and it almost dissuaded me from reading it. This book is great please give it a try dont be dissusaded by the bad reviews because they are completely unfounded.

If you enjoy this type of genre witches,magic, paranormal then you will love this book. As all new series are it takes a little time to get the background story but once you get into it you wont want to stop. My personal I had to write a review for this book based primarily on the fact that there are so many bad reviews out there on it and it almost dissuaded me from reading it. My personal favorite was Freya becuase I love the romance and love triangle type aspects that are a part of so many books these days.

Its my guilty pleasure and the chapters from Freyas point of few are full of all of that and more. Each chapter alternates from the three different perspectives of the three Beauchamp witches. The whole time you are reading it there are references to a big event that happened in which they are very vague and it keeps you wondering what happend. Keep going though they reveal it all in the end and once they do believe me you will be begging for the next book.

Melissa de la Cruz has successfully created another world of paranormal that is so different from all the other books that are out there right now. She has a way of taking a popular genre and putting her own unique twist to it which makes her books captivating and keeps her readers begging for more. I love all the Beauchamp women but I got to say Freya was my favorite.

I really wanted her to end up with Killian Gardiner! I bought this book way before the TV series aired, but I decided to start reading it now. Because I keep wondering what happened with uptight Ingrid, with caty Wendy, with the bittersweet life of Joanna.

I read the novella first and now I'll dive in with the story! Let's see how it goes! Sep 01, Lois Duncan rated it liked it. I was fascinated by this book until about half way through it when there were so many references to mythical characters and events that took place before this story started that I found myself totally lost.

I loved the three main characters. But I felt as if I'd wandered into the middle of a series that everyone else had been reading from the beginning, instead of reading the first book in an up-coming series. Feb 24, Lily at Bookluvrs Haven rated it it was ok.

Got your attention didn't I? But don't worry, I am not trapping you into reading this review with some random sexy picture. It is actually relevant More on that later. Witches of East End And then you fell flat. It was definitely an interesting story. The writer gets you interested right from the start.

And the array of drama keeps you wanting to read. In fact, there are so many story lines happening Got your attention didn't I? In fact, there are so many story lines happening in this book surrounding its main characters, it's pretty hard to keep it all straight.

They are packed in there like sardines in a can. But you hope, as a reader, that it's all wrapped up nicely in the end. It wasn't. It lost all credibility once view spoiler [ these three female characters, Joanna, and her daughters Freya and Ingrid get called into the police station to be questioned. Oh sure, if a coma victim wakes up and points a finger at you for being the person that bashed your beloved's head in and landed you in a hospital bed, I would definitely expect a police detective to question you.

However, once they sat down the daughters and accused them of being potential accessories to murder because they a featured some frilly drinks aka love potions at a bar, and b you made a little knot trinket to be put under some sleaze ball's pillow so he would stop cheating on his wife..

No way, in modern day would the police in any town hold any credence to a few "magic" trinkets as reasons for anyone to die or disappear.

To make it even more credible for me, one of the 'victims' was a suicide Don't quite get it. Then some random vampire girl appears in and out of the book in a flicker of a page And two sisters follow a lead to another place, by walking into a closet, that is actually a doorway to get from point A to very far away point B..

The three females are witches. But once again the book takes a spin, and there are Norse gods and goddesses in play.

That being the same characters. Gosh, I'm confused.

Can we throw in some more? Please pretty please? The end of this book definitely requires you to pick up Book In a very quick, wrap it quick and with bow, sort of way. Succulent Yes, breasts can be very succulent.

And Freya's breasts are. They are indeed so succulent, about half a page is devoted solely to tell you just how succulent they are. The texture, the smell, the feel. Not sure how many male readers would love to pick up this book, but I encourage it, just for this page. You may want to stay on this page, and this page only Not yet sure how relevant it is to the story, but rest assured And Succulent. View all 12 comments. Aug 01, Kristen rated it really liked it Shelves: I enjoyed this story overall.

I liked it better at the end than I thought I was going to at the beginning. This is one of those stories that you really need to finish to fully appreciate how well-crafted the plot actually was.

Ingrid works at the library, and Freya is a bartender at the local inn, while Joanna redecorates their house and bakes. It all sounds rather dull. Except, the thre I enjoyed this story overall. Except, the three women turn out to be immortal witches. Witches who were caught up in the Salem madness, and censured by their overseeing Council banned from ever using their powers again and not drawing any attention to themselves.

And everything stays quiet.

'Witches of East End' YA spinoff may resolve TV show's cliffhangers

Until bad things suddenly start happening to the good people of North Hampton. Both Freya and Ingrid are coaxed into using their powers to help our their friends and neighbours with small spells that couldn't do any harm - or could they.

As the odd occurrences pile up, and things the sisters have done that seemed harmless come back to haunt them, it becomes clear that something much more sinister is going on, and that the Beauchamp women will need to band together and fight to save their town and maybe even their own lives! In fact, at first I was considering not sticking with it because I really found both Freya and Ingrid irritating and unpleasant.

But the hints of the story to come was interesting and I was curious where the author was going with it. At the end, I was very glad I stuck with the story, because clearly the author had a very detailed and well-thought-out plot that the early part of the story absolutely lived up to.

I liked the world she created, and I enjoyed the Norse flavour she gave the witches, which is a unique and unusual twist that most paranormal fiction doesn't use. I also liked that there are multiple hints in the rest of the story that tie everything together quite cleverly in terms of the ending, even though there is a set-up for a next book, if you pay attention and look back over the entire book once you've finished.

It's a thing with me that authors finish each book, even if it is a series. I don't mind a continuing storyline, but I dislike authors who leave a reader hanging on the edge of a cliff and making them wait a year or more to find out what happens, so I like it when the author gives a proper ending to the current story and THEN sets up the sequel.

To me that's the mark of a really good writer and this book delivered that. I enjoyed this, and will definitely read the next book in the series to see what happens to the Beauchamps next.

Man, I hate to be mean, but this book was severely lame I'm being really generous with the 2 stars. It started out decently enough; the first hundred pages were fairly intriguing. But then it started to go downhill, fast, until I pretty much had to force myself to finish the last 50 pages. She couldn't keep a consistent timeline.

Or, maybe in her head it's consistent, but she's referring to random events that we just don't know about which is just as bad.

She varies between saying the women h Man, I hate to be mean, but this book was severely lame I'm being really generous with the 2 stars. There are enough references early on to imply that the women are Norse goddesses trapped here on earth, which again, is explicitly confirmed in the last few chapters. I'm not flagging that as a spoiler because it was pretty obvious that's where she was going from the first couple of chapters.

But they miss flying around on broomsticks??? She attempted a two sentence rationale behind the broomstick ridiculousness, but I just don't download any self-respecting goddess shooting around on a Nimbus And this is supposed to be an "adult" novel, but it reads like a YA novel and not a good one, at that.

Yes, the characters have sex, but it's written about in such a juvenile fashion that I wish she'd taken the Stephenie Meyer route and just vaguely alluded to the act without making any attempt at detail.

No one else needed to go? In all that time, no one heard strange sounds coming out and wondered where the bride-to-be and her fiancee's brother were??

Witches of East End (Book)

I haven't read de la Cruz's Blue Bloods series and after this, I won't be in any hurry , but we appear to have been "treated" to a Blue Bloods cameo. I can only assume it was there to inspire fan-girl squeals, because it certainly did nothing for this book. I don't really approve of cross-pollination between a YA series and an adult series, but for all I know, there could be plenty of lame sex scenes in the Blue Bloods books as well. Aug 20, Crystal rated it it was ok Shelves: Having liked this authors previous series I thought for sure I would love this new adult one, but unfortunately not.

The story centers around Joanna and her two daughters Freya and Ingrid. These women are witches and not only have they lived for hundreds of years but they were there in Salem during the witch trials. The witch trials ended up being their downfall, as they were convicted and hung. Being immortal though they were reborn unto their mother and the council decided that because of Sale Having liked this authors previous series I thought for sure I would love this new adult one, but unfortunately not.

Being immortal though they were reborn unto their mother and the council decided that because of Salem these women and the other magical people of the world were no longer allowed to use their magic. Well you can guess that after several hundred years the witches were itching to use their magic and so this story begins with what happens after they start using it and the consequences of their actions.

Again the plot sounds good but the author took way too long to get to anything important in the story. The prologue was even great but we don't get to revisit the problem created until the very end. Even the whole will the council strike us down problem ended rather abruptly with very little action.

Like her previous Blood Blue series the author focused more on trivial materialistic descriptions instead of expanding her main plot. I know her Blue Blood series is full fashion and Gossip Girl scenarios but I can take it for what it is worth it being Young Adult and all, but I really had high hopes for this series.

I still think she has a unique idea and I am hopeful that maybe the next in the series will be more climatic especially with the way this one ended and the introduction of a new character. Two of her Blue Blood characters make a cameo but it really wasn't a big deal which I am glad for as the story had enough characters without throwing in anymore from previous books.

I would say that if you like her Blue Blood series you might like this one, but don't expect it to be any deeper than her Young Adult series. Jul 06, Michelle rated it did not like it Shelves: They seem to be regular family, but they are actually a family of witches who cannot use their powers.

Ingrid, the youngest daughter, is getting married to the wealthy Bran Gardiner, but things do not go as they should at their engagement party. The Beauchamp women all end up using their powers to help the people around them, but their helping hands seem to have negative consequences. As with her Blue Bloods series, she writes about two different types of mythologies together. However, if you are looking for a book with actual characters besides names from Norse mythology this is not it.

The characters are flat and rather irritating and do not act as adults, but rather a group of adolescents. It is as if she just looked up the various gods and goddesses from the Norse mythology pantheon and wrote aspects of their characters from some list. There are even characters from the Blue Bloods series that pop in for no reason whatsoever which detracts from the narrative what there is of narrative.

This is nothing more than another Blue Bloods novel with more explicit sex scenes in it.

Definitely a novel to skip and no need to continue reading the series. View all 3 comments. Not in the mood for this and I really just don't have the time for it right now. I'd love to say that I'll try this again at a later time, but who knows.

Oh boy, it's been a while since I've had a one star read. And this honestly baffled and enraged me. Maybe I'm biased because I've watched the show, and they did a good job although it had its cheesy cliched moments, it was still better than what I read for various reasons.

Three spanning storylines, featuring through the sisters Ingrid and Freya and their mother Joanna --eventually got me confused. All began to blur together and I found myself waiting for it to end.

And other characters just blended together. Painful sex scenes and everything in writing just felt rather juvenile. And flat. There was no emotional connection for me to grab onto, or anything to make me care about the main cast.

And there being so many names thrown around and nothing to separate them from each other. Nearly no descriptions, or at least much of one to help. Or if there was I didn't even register it. Then oh my goodness, when they suddenly reveal the climax of explaination that had me staring blankly in attempting to register what had happened the book had ended. And that epilogue Talk about moving along with the story only to remember there had to be an explaination for everything and it is thrown at you, causing a whiplash of epic headaches.

I'm still trying to register what happened. The tv series is entirely different but at least it gave better context then the book did. And less headaches too. I think I'll go back to wishing for a 3rd season to wrap up all the loose ends of the tv series then continue this series. Sorry, I tried. Jul 06, Jessica rated it it was ok.

At pages into this, I was trying to figure out why I was wasting my time. It seemed like a cross between light fiction and light porn. The writing seemed cliched and fast; the characters are one-dimensional; and the only thing that distinguished it from a young adult novel was how graphic some of the sex scenes are. The last sixty pages held some substance however, and I've half a mind to read the next one.

I kind of get the feeling the author wrote the end of the story first, or maybe she c At pages into this, I was trying to figure out why I was wasting my time.

I kind of get the feeling the author wrote the end of the story first, or maybe she combined two separate stories. I haven't read the Blue Bloods novels. Perhaps if I had it would seem like the Norse mythology was more central to the overall storyline.

As it was, that was the only part that interested me, and as alluded to in the previous paragraph, it didn't really appear heavily until the last 60 pages. For light reading, it is okay.

I'd never categorize it as fantasy--although they probably are not marketing it as such--and I would never recommend it to a teen. For a work of comparable lightness with a hint of magic, I would instead recommend the works of Sarah Addison Allen.

Jul 05, Taryn Pierson rated it really liked it Shelves: Maybe I am just in the mood for fantasy stories starring awesome ladies. This one is about three ladies living in the Hamptons who are witches but are banned from using their powers. They have been living on Earth for centuries. During the Salem Witch trials the counsel decreed that the Norse are allowed to live on Earth, so long as they don't use their magic. Avoiding using their powers hasn't been working with them lately.

While working Freya looked at an ex-married couple and saw signs of violence. Freya couldn't really make out what she saw. She couldn't tell who it was that got hurt or who inflicted the pain.

Terrified Freya created a love potion and got the couple back together. Ingrid's friend Tabetha has been trying to get pregnant for months now. Ingrid feeling bad for her friend decides to help her get pregnant. Her magic specializes in that. Once she does that many women of the town come to Ingrid for help. While babysitting their house cleaners son Joanna, accidentally burnt the pie they were supposed to have.

To make Tyler happy Joanna fixed the pie and they ate it. I really liked the relationship between Ingrid and Freya! It was nice to read about how close they were compared to Molly and Mardi. I like how this book put a very large focus on the women of the family. For most of the book you don't know what's become of their father and what happened between their family. I loved reading about all the characters!

Especially Tyler! He was so adorable! The book was quite slow.

But there is a plot. It sort of sneaks up on you. And it was well done! I was really surprised when it was revealed who was behind all the weird stuff in their town. Freya initially believes that Killian is Loki, here to disrupt her relationship with Bran, only to discover that Bran is actually Loki and that his trips were not for charitable purposes but to encourage the destruction of the gates between the worlds.

Freya and Ingrid travel into the rift to stop Loki, managing to barely succeed and return home. Once home, they are told that the Council has noticed their magic and that if they can avoid getting convicted of the crimes against them, they will be free to practice magic once more. The Beauchamps are cleared of all charges, the intern's disappearance and death being a result of the mayor's obsession with her and the attack on a local couple being the actions of Bran.
