Now Jane must struggle with newfound magical abilities and the threat of those who will stop at nothing to get them.

Warring witches and stolen magic, set in the heart of New York City, this book has a lot to offer. My only complaints are that not very much time was spent going into the history of the witch families and the ending was abrupt and very much a cliffhanger. Luckily there are two more books in the series to the loose ends to be tied up and the history to be explored in.
Just to start, the building at that ominous address is not a condo/hotel, it is a private multi-generational mansion. And Jane's partner is named Malcolm, not Henry. The sinister mover behind the scenes at 665 Park Place is Lynne Doran, not Gavin Duran, and Malcolm is her son.
But put all the differences aside, and you can enjoy this creepy thriller for its own guilty pleasure. Jane is the beautiful innocent (clueless, in other words, and hence vulnerable) seduced by the exotic worldly dark man of every palm-reader's staple prediction. The story of how she finds her feet in the whirlwind and comes into her own power is a good one.
Overload Alert: For a guy's taste, there is an AWFUL lot of wedding fashion, kitsch and designer labels thrown into the mix. Just put on your filters and skim past it; I promise it isn't essential to the tale.
Honestly, this was the best book I've read in a while. It kept me twisting and turning until the very last page! The writer really knows how to throw you for a loop! I just started the second book, can't wait to get into this one as well!!!
666 Park Avenue was a novel that took me by surprise. At a first run of the synopsis, I somehow missed the last bit where it mentioned that character Jane, was a witch as well. I was a bit surprised to discover that after the few dozen pages when she comes into understanding why electronics and her have never gotten along. I was not particularly fond of the way she discovered her "abilities" that up until then had been pretty much dormant. It seemed a little less fresh to have someone find out about their abilities later in life by the death of another. Aside from having my reservations, I still enjoyed how it was later needed for the storyline.
This novel is more of a mystery, than it is a thriller or supernatural/magic read. It has the elements of a delicious romance novel, the easy-flowing text of a light read, but a very ominous presence of an actual supernatural theme that I was looking for based on what was offered in the beautiful cover and synopsis. I think I would have preferred Jane and Malcolm to have been married earlier on in the book and discover these things after, that way there would have been a lot more space for the action and wondrous possibilities that were hidden behind the wedding details and only ever given the chance to see the sun toward the very end. I still enjoyed this read, especially the romance, and will--in time--read the sequel. The idea and story were both imaginative and exciting and it was a great debut for the author whose talent is very apparent. I have already purchased the sequel, "The Dark Glamour" and will continue on with Jane's story at another time.
I am interested to see how the TV show will turn out. Judging from the trailer, I can see that it was taken in a whole new direction.
