The Charmed Ones are back and strange things are afoot. Piper and Leo seem to spend all of their time arguing about whether to have children or not. Leo really wants children but Piper isn't sure. Out of the blue children are drawn to Piper and keep following her home. She has dozens of the little rug rats running loose in Halliwell Manor and no matter how many times she takes them home, the next day they keep reappearing.

Paige has taken to going to the Symphony and has been struck by one of the fulte players. His music seems to really touch her and it's like she's under some kind of spell. She keeps going back night after night and can't think of anything besides him and his music. Phoebe is getting messages from a mysteriours caller, but when she arranges to meet him she finds him stabbed and dying in the parking lot. One thing that does seem to connect the children and the adults is music, but what exactly is that connection?

Some of the Charmed books are not great, but this one was a lot of fun. Even though the ending was pretty obvious, I was wondering all the way through how it would all tie together. It was cleverly written with all the elements that made Charmed great. Fashion, demons, magic and a fairy tale plot.

I am a huge Charmed fan and have been since the show first started. I have all the boxed sets and just re-watched every episode last summer. Of course, that took awhile..haha. I've only read one Charmed book, but I can't remember what it was called. It still had Prue in it though because I remember buying it when I pretty young.
