666 Park Avenue




666 Park avenue by Gabriella Pierce
Reviewed by Moirae the fates book reviews.
What if your mother-in-law turned out to be an evil, cold-blooded witch . . . literally?
Ever since fabulously wealthy Malcolm Doran walked into her life and swept her off her feet, fledgling architect Jane Boyle has been living a fairy tale. When he proposes with a stunning diamond to seal the deal, Jane can't believe her incredible luck and decides to leave her Paris-based job to make a new start with Malcolm in New York.
But when Malcolm introduces Jane to the esteemed Doran clan, one of Manhattan's most feared and revered families, Jane's fairy tale takes a darker turn. Soon everything she thought she knew about the world—and herself—is upended. Now Jane must struggle with newfound magical abilities and the threat of those who will stop at nothing to get them.
This is a 2011 debut novel! When reading this book, I was not sure just where to put in genre wise. It’s not really a paranormal romance, but it’s not chick lit either. It’s more in the middle of the two, and somehow Pierce made it work!

This book was fast paced and a fun read! I have always enjoyed books with witches and Pierce put her own spin so to speak on them. 

I do wish we learned more about Jane, but I liked how she handled everything and her new powers. The ending seemed a bit odd to me, and I really hope that this will become a series of books so we can learn more about Jane.
