Recommends it for: Supernatural fiction readers, especially Charmed fans
The long-running TV series Charmed was (and is --it's still in syndication, and she has all or most seasons on DVD) among my wife's top favorite TV shows, and I'm a fan myself (though not an uncritical one). I was looking for a short, quick-paced read that could entertain while filling in time as I waited to start a common read, and that's exactly what this book delivered. At 181 pages, many readers could consume it in one or two long sittings, and the brisk style invites that.

The primary audien

Another Charmed book read, but was it all that it was cracked up to be? Clearly not by my rating.

This wasn't a typical Charmed story, this failed to draw in the reader. I have been a long-time fan of Charmed and I have been going over my Charmed box sets recently and have just finished Series 4, but this failed to capture the Charmed essence which featured in the previous books.

The story was thick, full of surprises and it would have gotten a high rating from me however the writing style definit

I found this and three other books from the series at a thrift store and figured since the TV show is good, the books can't be half bad, right? Pretty much. What I love most is how short and quick it is. I have a hard time reading long books with a toddler in tow, so I'm all for a short and simple book! This was really good for a Charmed book, I guess, but voodoo doesn't really interest me, so the topic wasn't really spectacular or anything. I think the only reason I finished this in a day was o ...more

Voodoo Moon is the fifth book in the Charmed series. I read this when I was in high school, but I don't remember it at all. It has been between nine and eleven years depending which grade I was in. Wendy Corsi Staub did a great job at writing this book. I loved it from beginning to end, which I wasn't sure I would half way through it.


The sisters go to New Orleans in this book on vacation. There are some problems right away for one Prue almost misses the flight due to traffic. Once the sisters g

A good one shot type of story, and as much as I try to put the book in the cannon of the overall series, I just couldn't see this book doing that. The story was good within itself. It was disconnected from everything else, not only the setting of New Orleans, but the lore and Voodoo. It happened to be a different experience altogether, not to say that isn't a bad thing, it was just different. There were even zombies involved in the book.

The Charmed Ones head for an exciting adventure in the Bayou! I think this book would only appeal to fans of the show. If you are not familiar with the show, then it is awfully weak in characterization. I do love Charmed and enjoyed reading this book. They are nice to read as in-between books. The plot was interesting and creepy as it explored the Cajun culture and the creepy aspects of Voodoo. I just wish that they had gotten to the "good stuff" sooner and drew it out more. It seemed the last 2 ...more

I've always loved Charmed since I was just a kid, so reading this was second nature for me. The novel was set in New Orleans, since the place IS known for its voodoo and other magical what-not. Nothing much can be said about this novel except that it was your typical fun adventure for three Halliwell sisters (Prue, Piper, and Phoebe). I probably liked the part where the whole story did a turnabout with its characters. You might think at first that the other characters were good, but then at the ...more

I can't remember if I read this one of not. Long time ago, maybe.

I really enjoyed this Charmed volume, it was exciting and new and a real nice read. It's fun to read about the three sisters while they are not in their home town. After all the charmed episodes I have seen their neighborhood is well known to me so it was fun to read about them being in New Orleans. The story further is very enjoyable, Voodoo is an interesting subject to read about and although the plot might have been a bit of a cliche it was still fun and interesting to read. A great novel fro ...more

This quick pocketbook read freaked me out... Voodoo + Zombies = Nightmares. Weird I know.. This doesn't normally happen. There was something really intense about this book! I loved the adventure - what can you expect when the Charmed ones take a vacation to New Orleans... trouble and magic! There was 1 twist I expected & 2 I didn't see coming!

Final Thoughts:
I really enjoyed this quick read even though it gave me some nightmares - Bring on the next one!
Molly
this book was great. it was fun to read and if you are into witches and warlocks like i am i think that you will like it a bunnch. its about three sisters who find out they have powers and that they are the charmed ones who are the most powerful witches in the whole entire world. the book describes their adventures to defeat evil. it is immensely interesting and fun.

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.
Anna
Loved the series and felt like the books helped fill the void when it was done but I'm afraid the writing isn't that great. Now I have Charmed on DVD so...
These books are good if you've got nothing else to read I guess
Sara
It was better than the other two Charmed books I read, but again, nothing too special. The characters, like Randy, were great, but some things in the plot were a bit messed up.
Brigitte
another book I have from the CHARMED TV series hahaha Prue was my favorite character, and I stopped watching when they killed her off. So yeah, you must know I hate Paige lol
Cheryl
Cute quick read, might possibly help a teen learn a bit about New Orleans' cultural history. Probably not worth three stars but for some inexplicable reason I'm a fan.

Allright. This is my least favorite of the few charmed books i've read so far. The stopry is a little complicated and I didn't really like the whole voodoo thing.
Mckenzie Mauser
This book kept me engaged the entire time. I usually don't read suspense books but I love the show. This is an easy read and keeps your mind thinking.

i think that the book is perfect im in love with it i think its one of the best books iv ever read i think that they feel like they are outsiders .

Glad I read it as a Charmed fan but it was so dry (screenplay-ish), scripted and the sisters felt like different people. Boring people.
Courtney
awesome detail but not exatly as seen on tv i watched every single charmed episode and read every charmed book i am their no.1 fan.

it was such a good book.I loved how some of the people the sisters trused were baddies and the people they didn't trust were the good guys
Gwen
Like all the other Charmed novels, a great book, and just as good as the actual show.
Alex
really liking it so far, only about a chapter or two in, but this shows great potential
Debra Cook
It was okay but it was an adventure that was written to be on tv not a book story.
Rita
Not a bad tie-in book but found I was skipping bits to get to the end.
