666 Park Avenue By Gabriella Pierce

Cover of 666 Park Avenue by Gabriella Pierce
666 Park Avenue by Gabriella Pierce is the first book in this incredible series. It is Secret circle meets Gossip girl.

The story starts in Paris, but is primarily set in New York and tells the story of American-born Jane Boyle. Who after the tragic death of her parents is sent to live with her paranoid and overprotective grandmother in France.
Jane left her overprotective grandmother when she was old enough and move to Paris to become an architect.

It is in Paris that Jane is swept of her feet by Malcolm Doran. He is everything she ever dreamed about and though she hasn't known him very long she has fallen madly in love with him. When she makes the ultimate decision to follow her heart and leaves her whole world behind to move to New York to be with Malcolm. To the family she has always hoped for but first impressions can be deceiving and with the Doran Family that is exactly what she will find out.

Before she goes she has to tie up some loose ends and pay her grandmother one last visit.  And this is where the story really gets interesting. I don’t want to say to much more but hold on to your broom sticks. 
What I found refreshing about this story was that even though it is a story about witches, this fact that it felt like it wasn’t constantly being pointed out in the story. That Gabriella allowed the story and characters to grow and developed with out constantly reminding us they are witches .

I loved the fact that the chapters were not long and drawn out.  That if I had to put the book down ( not that I wanted to) I was not in the middle of a chapter.

666 Park Avenue has just been made into a TV series by ABC in the States, you can watch the trailer here:

The story is full of twist and turns that will leave you begging for more.

Will this fairy tale have a happy ending or will it become a nightmare?

The story

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.
