Product Description

Review

What could be more fun than a summer on Long Island? A summer on Long Island with witches, of course. Smart, stylish, and just a bit wicked, the witches in Melissa de la Cruz's Witches of East End series manage to be both thoroughly modern and delightfully mythic (Deborah Harkness, New York Times bestselling author of A Discovery of Witches and Shadow of Night)

In her first novel for adults, the author . . . lets her repressed sorceresses rip (New York Times)

Book Description

* The novel that inspired the hit TV show Witches of East End, starring Julia Ormond

* Originally published as Witches of the East in the UK

I bought this book after watching the TV series of the same name as I really enjoyed it. Besides the character names and a loose resemblance made to the storyline there is nothing really that corresponds between the book and the TV show. In the book we meet a bunch of witches. Joanna, Freya and Ingrid who are suffering under punishment and are no longer allowed to use their magic. They live in a small town where strange events start happening. Children get ill and are unable to get better. A deadly silver poison appears in the ocean and kills of local fish. Around the same time all three witches decide to start using a little bit of power to help those around them. Freya creates potent love cocktails, Ingrid helps the local women with ailment, rashes and infertility and Joanna uses her magic to animate toys and fix burnt pies. When people start dying or disappearing, the locals quickly blame the witches for their bad luck and they are brought into the local police station for questioning. Overall, the book was enjoyable and super easy to read. I'm disappointed that it only has a passing resemblance to the TV show. Having said that, it is great in its own right. I will be reading the next book in the series, the Serpent's Kiss.

Format: Hardcover
Despite the occasional murder and mayhem thrown in Witches of East End is a gentle and charming tale. Joanna Beauchamp and her two daughters, Freya and Ingrid, reside in the pleasant town of North Hampton. However, the three of them are witches and just happen to be immortal. For hundreds of years they have refrained from using their powers as a result of a judgement by `the council' which has forbidden use of magic if they want to reside on earth.

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.

This book started really well and rapidly declined in quality. If you like torrid descriptions of other peoples sexual exploits you may like parts of this book, but if you are looking for clever originality in a story line and believable characterisation, then like me, you are going to be disappointed. I limped to the end of the book purely because I didn't have anything else to read.

The book did not read as if this was an established author with many tales under her belt, whatever she was trying to achieve, she did not do herself or her book justice.

Don't bother unless you are really bored.

This book is really good for its genre. After watching the series on tv I was intrigued to find out more about the books and I'm glad I did. The story is very different to the show but that's a good thing as it makes it a while new story. Very hard to out down and read most of it in one sitting.

I must admit to not knowing that this was a book before watching the series. I love the series but always find the books to be more in depth.
I wasn't disappointed...I loved this book!
There's slight variations between the book and the series, but by far, the book is much better. 👍
