Pressestimmen

"A sexy, magical romp, sure to bring de la Cruz a legion of new fans."―Kelley Armstrong, New York Times bestselling author of The Otherworld series

Kurzbeschreibung

From the author of the highly addictive and bestselling Blue Bloods series, with almost 3 million copies sold, comes a new novel, Melissa de la Cruz's first for adults, featuring a family of formidable and beguiling witches.

The three Beauchamp women-Joanna and her daughters Freya and Ingrid-live in North Hampton, out on the tip of Long Island. Their beautiful, mist-shrouded town seems almost stuck in time, and all three women lead seemingly quiet, uneventful existences. But they are harboring a mighty secret-they are powerful witches banned from using their magic. Joanna can resurrect people from the dead and heal the most serious of injuries. Ingrid, her bookish daughter, has the ability to predict the future and weave knots that can solve anything from infertility to infidelity. And finally, there's Freya, the wild child, who has a charm or a potion that can cure most any heartache.

For centuries, all three women have been forced to suppress their abilities. But then Freya, who is about to get married to the wealthy and mysterious Bran Gardiner, finds that her increasingly complicated romantic life makes it more difficult than ever to hide her secret. Soon Ingrid and Joanna confront similar dilemmas, and the Beauchamp women realize they can no longer conceal their true selves. They unearth their wands from the attic, dust off their broomsticks, and begin casting spells on the townspeople. It all seems like a bit of good-natured, innocent magic, but then mysterious, violent attacks begin to plague the town. When a young girl disappears over the Fourth of July weekend, they realize it's time to uncover who and what dark forces are working against them.

With a brand-new cast of characters, a fascinating and fresh world to discover, and a few surprise appearances from some of the Blue Blood fan favorites, this is a page-turning, deliciously fun, magical summer read fraught with love affairs, witchcraft, and an unforgettable battle between good and evil.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fantasy mit Mythologie gekoppelt 25. Mai 2014
Von Moppy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Ich fand das Buch gut, es hat sich flüssig gelesen und es wurde Spannung aufgebaut. Die einzelnen Personen werden im Laufe des Buches immer näher beschrieben und die schlussendliche Auflösung empfand ich als rund.
Den zweiten Teil werde ich mir auf jeden Fall zulegen :-)

If you have seen the series: DO NOT buy this book, 'cause you will be disappointed missing Wendy and surprised that the stories differ like herbal tea and White Russian.
If you have not seen the series: Read and enjoy OR: Watch the series and read Anne Rice.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Witches of East End macht süchtig 20. Februar 2015
Von Jeannie

Im Original sind Nordische Sagen und Hexen aus Salem integriert. Wenn das so verfilmt worden wäre, wäre die Serie nicht nach der 2. Staffel eingestellt worden und weitergehen. Habe jetzt mit dem 2. Buch gleich im Anschluß angefangen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Reading with Tequila 29. April 2011
Von Jennifer Sicurella - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
I had a good feeling about Witches of East End when reading the synopsis and while I had high hopes for this book, it was so much more amazing than I could have possibly expected. The characters, the magic, the mythology, everything clicked perfectly. The pages flew by as I read, utterly entranced by the easy tone of the novel.

The Witches of East End, Joanna, Ingrid and Freya, were wonderful characters. I love a good witch novel, but even without powers, I would have fallen in love with these women. Freya's fun nature, Ingrid's love of knowledge and Joanna's loving kindness all shone well beyond their magical abilities. Not to discount the magic, though, as there was much of that as the novel moved forward.

Not everything is as it seems in Witches of East End and readers with a love of mythology will be particularly delighted. My knowledge of Norse mythology is rusty and I found myself only recognizing a name here and there. Nonetheless, even those who've even learned anything about Norse mythology will love the the way the myths are woven into the story.

Witches of East End blew me away. It's a paranormal mystery of sorts that includes just the right amount of romance - enough to make the reader root for certain couples, but not too much as to distract from the overall plot. Melissa de la Cruz has crossed over to writing for adults beautifully here and I am on the edge of my seat waiting to see what's next for the Beauchamps and the rest of the East End residents.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting Read 14. Juli 2011
Von LAS Reviewer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
You can't use your gift...but we can't really stop you either.

Sound interesting? It was to me. I couldn't wait to sink my teeth into Witches of East End. The story is written with fluidity and moves at a quick pace. The blurb snagged me immediately and, once opened, I couldn't put it down. Ms. de la Cruz has characters that are intriguing. I wanted to know what would happen next. Ms. de la Cruz puts a new spin on mythology and witches. I really enjoyed the telling.

The characters are what hampered the story for me. Joanna has a lot of potential. As the matriarch, she's got power and standing. I liked her subplot. Man, I want to see her get her man. At the same time, she fell into grandma mode more than once and I wanted to see her have more spunk. She has a gift that's out of this world. I hope she gets a story down the line.

Then there's Freya. Honestly, I had some serious reservations with her. Granted, the epilogue totally kicks the end of the story, including her, onto it's rump, but there were too many moments I wanted to smack her on the head. She makes decisions that I had a hard time dealing with and was really hard pressed to find reasons to cheer for her.

Last but not least, there's Ingrid. She was my favorite character because, above all else, she's out to help people. No agendas, no secrets, just helping. But like her mother and sister, she's got moments when she's a little less spunky and a little more meek. There's so much potential for her, but sometimes she just doesn't use it.

Still, there's a lot going on in this book. The mythology really spins along, keeping the reader firmly in his or her seat. This book is certainly one paranormal fans won't want to miss. There's suspense, mystery, romance, and a neat little HEA that you won't want to pass up. Grab a copy of Witches of East End. It's a good read.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Entertaining but a bit unbelievable 5. Oktober 2012
Von Melissa's Eclectic Bookshelf - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
I really wanted to love this one! It was my first Melissa de la Cruz read and I devour anything with Witches, but it just fell a little flat to me. The book was very well written but the pacing felt a bit slow and the plot a bit weak in my opinion. Despite the fact that the POV shifts between the three women, I had trouble making a connection to any of the characters. I especially found Freya's actions hard to justify and that made her a pretty unlikable character for me. They honestly seemed more like caricatures of witches rather than "real" witches. Their powers seemed arbitrary and a bit too easy to be real. Perhaps if the tone of the novel had been a bit more tongue in cheek, I could have bought the fact that they literally flew on broomsticks etc.... Overall I enjoyed it enough to keep reading (all the while hoping that it would improve) but simply wasn't thrilled with how it developed or how it was semi-resolved at the conclusion. I don't think I will pick up book 2 when it comes out.

NOTE: Book is from my own personal library (purchased at a source other than Amazon)

1.0 von 5 Sternen Disappointed. Young Adult Tone - Adult Book 7. Juni 2011
Von Parajunkee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
Another disappointment. WITCHES OF EAST END cinched that I am officially in a book slump. Packed full of aloof and unrealistic characters along with a hazy and murky plot attempt, I trudged through WITCHES OF EAST END, nearly forcing myself to turn each page. The author's tone was snooty and the characters behavior was childlike and paired with the young adult writing style it made the "adult" actions of the characters almost indecent, even though in a well-written adult novel it would be normal. Melissa de la Cruz should have stuck to young adult since it seemed almost painful to drop the young adult tone.
WITCHES OF EAST END is the tale of the Beauchamp women, the mother Joanna and her daughters Freya and Ingrid. The women live in a town call North Hampton, which is some how hidden from the world, yet a vacation spot. The women tend to keep to themselves but something has changed recently. They are witches, but have been forbidden to use their powers. Yet, those constraints seem to have become too much lately. All three women begin using their magic in different "harmless" ways until eventually they give up all pretenses of hiding out and "come out of the closet" with their powers.
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 think this novel might have been interesting if de la Cruz's tone wouldn't have thrown me through loops. I just got this very snooty and young adult tone through the entirety - and to have the tone describe Freya's sexual encounters just seemed lewd. I also don't blame it on the fact that I'm used to her tone in the BLUE BLOOD books because I've only read one of them and that was nearly two years ago. 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. I think if you are a big fan of the BLUE BLOOD series you could probably really like this book. But, as an outsider looking in, this didn't sit well with me.
I also had a problem with the murky plot and I felt "reveal" points were kept hidden for too long. 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.
Recommended for fans of de la Cruz's BLUE BLOOD series. This is an adult novel and there are descriptive sex scenes.
