It must be hard writing a sequel. I won this as a Goodreads First Read and before it arrived got the first book in the series from the library so I could catch up on the back-story. The first book was good - stylish, funny, well-paced, well-plotted, and suspenseful. This one: not so good. Not even all that interesting, and at times downright annoying.

It’s not that you don’t suspend disbelief when you are reading about a set of jet-setting witches in modern-day New York, Paris, and London. But e
This took me forever and a day to finish, but it had nothing to do with the book. I was going through one of those too tired to read periods. You know, where you really want to read, but you fall asleep three pages in. It was awful. Yay autoimmune flareups! Book one involved murder, fire and torture, but this one had a completely different tone. Jane was more in control and needed to take the time to harness her magic and create a plan. In doing so, she uncovers a secret that could allow her to ...more

English Review

This is the book 2 of the 666 Park Avenue series. I think that it is possible to read it without reading the previous one, there is enough information provided by the author. You will find Melliane’s opinion of the book 1 here: I feel the same way :)

The book begins where stopped the first one. After their marriage, Jane and Malcolm fled their ways separately to escape Lynn plans (the witch mother-in-law). Jane decides to hide where they’ll search her least: in

Let me just tell you...Jane SUCKS.
Like she really, really ,really sucks.
She's a terrible friend who only ever seems to think about herself. Even when she's "worried" about her friends she makes it about herself every single time.

She also has this poor me mentality when she frikken knows magic and has unlimited funds...I can't with Jane. I just can't.
I would probably quit reading this series if there wasn't only one last book. Ugh.

The Dark Glamour by Gabriella Pierce is due for release on August 30 2011. This is the sequel to 666 Park Avenue, and is not really paranormal romance, although there are several elements that might have it labeled as such. In this novel the heroine of 666 Park Avenue, Jane, returns after her harrowing flight from Lynne's intention. In this novel she disguises herself and goes undercover in search for the one thing Lynne might give up everything for. In the process she interacts with a few of he ...more

This is book 2 of the 666 Park Avenue series, with a similar glittery book jacket design but a not as dazzling plot line. The climax doesn’t arrive until about the last 50 pages of the book, and even though it is very exciting and unexpected, it doesn’t really make up for the previous sluggish 250 pages. Plus the ending is a total cliff-hanger, so that’s a little annoying that I’ll probably have to wait another year or so to figure out what happens next. I can wait though. It’s definitely no G ...more
When I read the first book I was a little confused as to how to classify this book. It isn't what I'd classify as chick-lit but it isn't exactly an urban fantasy or a paranormal romance. After I finished the second book I'm only slightly less clueless as to which genre I'd shelve this in, but the most important reaction is still the same: this is a very fun series to read.

This isn't exactly a dark and gritty read, but neither is it as light and fluffy as I was expecting it to be. We have the won

The Dark Glamour is the highly anticipated second installment of the young adult (YA) paranormal fiction novel, 666 Park Avenue, by Gabriella Pierce. And while it is the second book in the series, there are enough explanatory tie-backs to the first novel that the book is strong enough to read as a stand-alone work.

The main character, Jane Boyle, returns from escaping the wrath of her mother-in-law and witch heiress, Lynne Doran, into an even more complex plot.

I bought this for my Kindle after reading and enjoying the first book in the series 666 Park Avenue. After the crazy events at the end of the previous book I couldn’t wait to find out what was in store for Jane this time!

At the beginning Jane was still in hiding, she didn’t really have much of a plan at this point and I was keen to find out what she would decide to do. She needed to learn more about her magic and it was when she re-acquainted herself with her friend Dee that she finally saw a wa

This is the sequel to 666 Park Avenue, I enjoyed the first one and couldn't wait to get my hands on this one to find out what happened to Jane.

I like how it started almost right after her and Malcolm separated and although Jane is sometimes dumb and clueless I thought it was smart of her to stay in N.Y. I did like the story the only issue I had was with Jane, she just tends to annoy me at times but I feel like that's more the character than the author.

Spoiler Time:

I think this one is way better than the first one, but Jane needs to start thinking straight!!! She can be so dumb sometimes...She could've avoided that much trouble if she just had made some research!!!
I was torn up between Malcom and Harris, but now it Malcom, Harris and Andre...although I think there's something between Anne and Andre, and they would be a cute couple.
Between Harris and Malcom I so prefere Harris, at least Jane can be her true self with him...

Jane is somewhat immature. The story is okay. Really the series is like a guilty pleasure. I will keep reading because I want to know what happens and I'm bored and don't mind getting whisked away into a fantasy world but the books are definitely not thought provoking or profound in any way. A lot of times I figure things out before Jane does and since the books are in first person narrative, it makes the character seem dense to me. Also, considering in the beginning she is not supposed to be ab ...more

I had such a great time reading this book! Just like in the first book, the author delivers to her readers! I loved the twists and turns that are thrown the reader's way throughout the book. I'm glad to see Jane coming into her own. She is showing way more confidence and strength than she did in the first book. Truly enjoyed this book! Great read!!!!

The Dark Glamour is the second novel in the 666 Park Avenue series, with the first novel being aptly named 666 Park Avenue. I was very excited to read this novel when I first heard about it. I love novels which involve witches in any shape or form. I think this stems from my love of the television show Charmed when I was younger, and perhaps a little bit from The Witches. Ever since then I have been fascinated with witches and whenever a book comes along fea
I recently read Gabriella Pierce’s first novel 666 Park Avenue and I very much enjoyed the fact the book was a Chick Lit book but with witches. To know it was the first book of a trilogy made me feel even better and I was thrilled to receive a copy of The Dark Glamour, the second 666 Park Avenue novel, to review and I started it as soon as I could. However, sadly, I felt that The Dark Glamour was that awkward, filler book that sometimes occurs between a first novel and a third novel. It’s there, ...more

Mid-August I read 666 Park Avenue (the first novel in this series) which I enjoyed and recommended for your reading lists. When The Dark Glamour was offered to me to review I jumped at the chance!

When we left Jane Boyle she’d made her decision. The Dark Glamour opens with Jane living through that decision, which isn’t as exciting as she’d expected. It’s three weeks after her magical battle with Lynne Doran and Jane finally goes to the safe deposit box that

I received this book from the publisher Canvas in exchange for an honest review.

From the back cover:

Jane Boyle thought she’d met the man of her dreams. But it’s hard to live happily ever after when your new mother-in-law is literally a witch, determined to steal the magical powers you didn’t even know you had. When Jane discovers that the man she fell in love with is merely a pawn in her mother-in-law’s evil plan, she flees. Now Jane is alone and on the run, but she can’t

A couple weeks ago, I won my first Goodreads first reads giveaway. I was extremely excited as I had loved the summery and cover I had seen while researching this book from the moment I discovered them. It's not surprising I pulled open the package as soon as it arrived.
Having never read the first book in the Park Avenue series, I feared I would be left behind as new plots referred back to the first book
This second book in the 666 Park Avenue series was a fairly good sequel, but not quite as good as the first book, I thought. It's a hard book to place into a specific genre as well - it's not quite paranormal romance (yes there's a bit of sex but no romance as both of the involved characters are just using each other as a means to an end), but it's not strictly your urban fantasy either, but I do feel it's more UF than PNR, so that's where I'm putting it :P

This is the second book in the series, and I received a copy of the book from a Goodreads First-Reads Giveaway, which was so exciting! Nothing in the world could be better in my opinion than a free book!! But, that being said, I can't read books out of order, it just drives me nuts, so i had to wait to read this one until I went to the library and got a copy of the first book and read it.

Author Gabriella Pierce now has two books out in the 666 Park Ave series. The first book, 666 Park Ave, sets the stage for a James Bond-type saga that replaces spies with witches. Unknown to the rest of the world, witches really do exist. Witch families are some of the wealthiest and most beautiful people on this Earth. They are constantly in the public eye yet hide what they really are.

Jane Boyle has been hiding out in New York right under the nose of her mother-in-law the powerful Lynne Doran using one of the false identities her new husband Malcolm Doran created for her.

With no progress made, rapidly depleting funds in addition to being followed by a mystery woman who seems to know who she is, Jane is feeling pretty down on her luck but not for too long.

She moves with him to New York and becomes part of the Doran clan. Jane's future mother-in-law, Lynne, is a bit pushy and wants things done her own way but Jane puts up with it because she thinks it all part of the wedding stress.

THE DARK GLAMOUR, by Gabriella Pierce, is the fantastic sequel to 666 Park Avenue. From the moment I finished 666 Park Avenue I was dying to read the next book. When I finally got my hands on it, I flew through it in one sitting and now I want the next one. This series is addictive, hilarious, packed with steamy romances and of course, witches!

This is the second book in the "666 Park Avenue" series (book three is scheduled to be January 2, 2013). This one didn't grab me like the first did, and I found some of the themes a little tiring. The good points of the book are that it is a very easy read (took me a day), it is borderline mindless fluff, and it will in no way change your life. It had been a while since I read the first book, and Pierce did a nice job of summarizing characters and events that affected the story here.

The Dark Glamour is the second book in this Intriguing and indulgent series by author Gabriella Pierce.

In the first book we were introduced to our leading lady Jane Boyle, who is swept up in a whirlwind romance by the man of her dreams. Only to find out that everything is not as it seems.
The Dark Glamour takes up where the 666 Park Avenue left off.
It is hard to give a review with our there being a few spoliers in it. so this is your warning.
