February 2011 Acquisitions 3

One of my favorite TV shows is Charmed, and today I received, from a Book Mooch member, three tie-in books. So, I know they aren't great literature, but they're still quick fun reads that bring back memories of the show. (I also like to read Buffy the Vampire Slayer tie-in books). 

                             Publisher's synopsis:

Charmed Again, a novelization by Elizabeth Lenhard; based on the episodes "All Hell Breaks Loose" and "Charmed Again", written by Brad Kern; based on the hit TV series created by Constance M. Burge.

Piper and Phoebe Halliwell are devastated by the loss of their big sister, Prue. But even in their grief they can’t forget that they, too, are in mortal danger. The power of the Charmed Ones has been broken, leaving them prey to every form of evil. Even Leo, their Whitelighter, and Cole, Phoebe’s demon boyfriend, can’t protect them.

In frustration and despair, Piper casts a spell to summon a lost witch and bring back her beloved Prue. The spell does work, but not as Piper intended. A lost witch is found – heir to a shocking Halliwell family secret. But can Piper and Phoebe persuade her to assume her powers and complete the Power of Three?

Spirit of the Wolf, an original novel by Diana G. Gallagher; based on the hit TV series created by Constance M. Burge.

At a remote resort in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, a tree bursts into flames, an animal skull oozes blood, and a wolf threatens to attack, then vanishes like a ghost. The police suspect a nearly extinct Native American group that was forced off the resort’s land long ago. Others blame the owners of the resort for defiling sacred tribal lands.

Phoebe and Paige arrive for a pre-opening weekend and some sisterly bonding, but are soon drawn into danger by incidents both natural and unnatural. A powerful shaman holds the key to the mystery with his secret knowledge – knowledge that is shared by the wolf haunting the land. The sisters call upon Piper, Leo, and Cole for guidance – and summon all their powers to confront a demon as cunning as any they have ever encountered!

Trickery Treat, an original novel by Diana G. Gallagher; based on the hit TV series created by Constance M. Burge.

It’s Halloween, and Piper is busy decorating the Manor, which has become the neighborhood hot spot on the most bewitching night of the year. Meanwhile, Paige decides to use the party as a chance to honor the dead. She casts a spell that creates a portal for a clan of leprechauns…and other wandering spirits.

The guests are thrilled and impressed wit the realistic effects, but Phoebe, Piper and Paige soon realize they have a big trick to deal with: one not-so-friendly ghost going out of his way to turn the Manor into a haunted house. The Charmed Ones must stop this evil soul with a vengeance before he takes the life of one experienced ghost hunter who knows his story and has met him before…
