Description

What if your mother-in-law turned out to be evil. . . literally?

Ever since fabulously wealthy Malcolm Doran walked into her life and swept her off her feet, fledgling architect Jane Boyle has been living a fairy tale. When he proposes with a stunning diamond to seal the deal, Jane can't believe her incredible luck and decides to leave her Paris-based job to make a new start with Malcolm in New York.

But when Malcolm introduces Jane to the esteemed Doran clan, one of Manhattan's most feared and revered families, Jane's fairy tale takes a darker turn. Soon everything she thought she knew about the world—and herself—is upended. Now Jane must struggle with newfound magical abilities and the threat of those who will stop at nothing to get them.

Publishers Weekly Review

Apr 04, 2011 – Rosemary's Baby meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer in this breezy chick lit thriller about an American in Paris swept off her feet by a rich-and-good-looking New Yorker with some very dangerous secrets. Then again, aspiring architectural designer Jane Boyle has some hidden skeletons of her own, which she discovers when her estranged grandmother Celine leaves a death-note revelation that clueless Jane comes from a long line of witches. What follows as Jane moves with her handsome fiancé Malcolm Doran to Manhattan's Upper East Side is a frightening cascade of wickedness that forces Jane to match witchy wits with Malcolm's mom-from-hell, Lynne, negotiate a mansion-full of Mean Girls and a Boo Radley-like stalker—and test drive her own considerable powers. A scary face-off between Jane and Lynne is both hilarious and exciting. And though the frantic and elaborate finale may leave the future of fledgling witch Jane in question, first-time author Pierce neatly leaves open a creaky, spooky door for a slew of sequels for fans of gothic social climbing and the supernatural.

Customer Reviews

Disappointing

For most of this novel the reading experience was not unpleasant: light, frothy, insubstantial, entertaining enough; maybe a 3/5 rating. Unfortunately my rating plummeted to 1/5 (rather wish 0 was an option) in the last several pages. Why? It turns out that this is not a complete story within it's own (electronic) bindings, but rather forms Part One of an impending series. Now being part of a series is not inherently heinous, however the failure to disclose to potential readers that the book under their consideration is, in fact, part of a larger and as-yet-incomplete entity is annoying. Highly annoying. Not to mention that the novel as presented feels quite brief and I'm not convinced of the legitimacy of fragmenting it into a multiple-parter. Not recommended.

Very enjoyable!

A sweet, simple read that keeps one's interest.

Sequel would be cool

Enjoyed it a lot, definitely read next one.
