Wend ik mij tot de Oude Macht.

Wij willen de Macht!
Geef ons de Macht!

Prue, Piper en Phoebe Halliwell geloofde niet dat het oplezen van een magische spreuk echt zou werken. Maar dat deed het wel. En nu kan Prue voorwerpen laten bewegen door middel van haar geest, Piper kan de tijd stilzetten en Phoebe kan de toekom...more

The first ever Charmed novel. This novel is all about three sisters called Phoebe, Prue and Piper who discover they are witches and become the Charmed Ones. The Charmed Ones are the most powerful witches ever. You find out in this novel about the Halliwells background history which they were never aware of, they discover their powers and find out that an evil warlock is set to kill them and steal their powers.

Prue is the oldest of the sisters, then Piper and then Phoebe is the youngest. Without...more

Novelization of the TV episode and series of the same name. The Power of Three, this book is just like the TV episode, it has the seem feel and everything. The only thing here is that you get more into the characters heads and what they really think of each other, and there are some extra scenes that aren't in the episode, but if given the time would have fit in quite nicely.

It was a good read, and has the quality of the show in it. Writing was okay, not a masterpiece but a quick, nice and easy...more

I love this anything about charmed is probably the most amazing thing in the world. the book was really nice really easy to understand and i loved it
not as much as i liked the show but it is still AMAZING
Rose
This book is written after the episode. So for this part I think it's very easy. It's totally the same. Maybe not all discription for Roger or Jeremy but it must have been easy.

I want to watch Charmed again. It's been the first series I've watched fully when I was a kid because my dad loved it and I've rewatched it every now and then or only a few episodes.
Now a good friend of mine start watching this and I was actually jealous. I'm studying for Finals. Have to many other series to rewatch and...more

The Charmed ones Prue, Piper and Phoebe Halliwell. Sisters that aren't as close as they were when they were little; at least not Prue and Phoebe.

It mirrors the episode except for some extra scenes that are put into it. Andy and Phoebe both return to San Francisco one from Oregon one from New York. Both coming on for the first time in a while. Andy's Prue's ex-boyfriend from high school who is now an inspector.

Phoebe returning after six months of being away searching for her dad who she has not...more

I was so excited when I saw this book at the library. I absolutely loved the Charmed series when it was on TV, and couldn't wait to squeeze this pocket read in somewhere. Reading this was like visiting an old friend - I wanted to run and put on my dvd's and watch my box set all over again.

Was it the best written book? No. But I still loved it and read it in 2 sittings (it could easily have been one if we didn't get visitors). I adore Prue, Phoebe and Piper. These characters are...more

In this book we learn how Prue, Piper, and Phoebe discover their powers. Having been separated since their Grams death six months ago, the sisters become the Charmed Ones, the most powerful of witches, when they are reunited again. Prue finds their mother's old spirit board in the basement with an inscription on the back that reads, "To my three beautiful girls. May this give you the light to find the Shadows. The power of three will set you free. Love, Mom." The spirit board leads Phoebe to the...more

The Charmed TV show just wasn't enough for me, I had to read the books to and of course, you should start with the first one and just like in the first episode of Charmed, we get to meet Prue, Piper and Phoebe. Three normal sisters who by accident find out that they are witches and have to fight evil. Now if that isn't hard enough, they are also the Charmed ones, the most powerful witches and with their Power of Three need to banish demons and other evil beings. This first book shows how they st...more

I read this book because I love the Charmed TV show that USED to be on TNT. It was about 3 sisters who find out they are witches, the Charmed Ones and they have to fight off all kinds of demons to protect the world. I read the book all at one (it only took a couple hours) and I would have to say, it gets 3 stars. I mean, it was really good and all, but not as exciting to me. Probably because I already knew exactly what was going to happen from watching the shows like a millions times each!

But, i...more

I love charmed

I don't think I should even rate this book, because the Charmed series (along with Buffy) got me through upper primary and secondary school. And so 13-year-old self would be biased.

Anyway this was probably my first encounter of a series that deals with magic and witchcraft. I remember I loved the series very much and would lay my hands on every single book the moment they are published/on the library shelves.
Doris
I am a huge fan of the tv series, and thoroughly enjoyed the first episode, which this is. Unfortunately, without that background, this book does not have enough writing to stand alone. It doesn't flesh out the characters, or give enough background to make them seem real. For a fan, its great. Everyone else, not worth reading.

Good story, I already watched the entire Tv series, so nothing surprising, but it us still fun to read, because the story and the overall idea are very nice. The writing style was a bit weird though, but maybe that was just because I'm used to reading the original english versions, and this one was translated to dutch.
Amanda
I love the Charmed TV series and read this because I love the show so much. I found that while I liked the book, the show is definetly better for the magical aspects, pacing etc. This might be biased as I loved the show so much but I thought that it was a good read but I would pick the show over these spin off books any day.
Angel
Back in the day when there wasn't TV to DVD I had no idea how the Charmed ones came to be. It came to me on a whim today that I read this novel to find out. Now if only I could remember more books that I've read. :( My rating really has nothing to do with what I thought about the book as I don't remember.

I finished this little book in record time. It was as enjoyable as re-watching the pilot episode, and I really did miss Prue in the later seasons (in fact, I stopped watching it until the last episode, which did tie things up nicely).
Sharon
The first Charmed pocket, one of my guilty pleasures. This book was good, but I felt as if too much was taken from the series pilot (first episode) which was a shame. I would have loved for it to be more excited.

This was a really good first book in the series and it really related to the show.

“Prue touched piper's shoulder. "Don't worry, no one's going to the attic. but theres no point in leaving the house. we are perfectly safe here."
"Don't say that!" Piper cried. "in horror movies, the person that says that is always the next to die.”
