*The second book in the series that inspired the major Netflix TV drama Witches of East End*

'Smart, stylish and just a bit wicked' Deborah Harkness, bestselling author of A Discovery of Witches

Everything ought to be perfect in the magical Long Island town of North Hampton now that Freya Beauchamp's twin brother, Freddie, is back. But their mother, Joanna, has always favoured son Freddie, and his assertion-that Freya's fiancé Killian Gardiner (Baldur) was the one who set up his downfall-threatens to fracture the delicate family dynamics as the Beauchamps are forced to take sides against each other.

Freddie spends his days either on the couch sleeping, or sleeping around. When their father Norman helps him find a job on a fishing vessel, Freddie's uncontrollable magic causes mayhem aboard the ship and lands him in even more hot water.

Level-headed sister Ingrid attempts to maintain the peace between the warring twins, but she has problems of her own: her human boyfriend, detective Matt Noble, becomes entangled in a complicated investigation, and when the magical creatures at the heart of it come to Ingrid for help, she has to choose between helping her kind and staying loyal to her love.

Freya and Killian plan their wedding only to discover an ancient rivalry that could keep them apart for ever. Things come to a head when the culprit behind Freddie's imprisonment is finally revealed, but it may be too late to staunch the poison that's been released in the family and the town.

    I really enjoyed Serpent’s Kiss by Melissa de la Cruz, it was the perfect follow on to Witches of East End.Freya’s twin brother Fryr, now known as Freddie, has escaped Limbo and returned to get his revenge on the man he believes responsible for his incarceration, Killian. While Freya goes between the two attempting to prove Killian innocent and find out who is really to blame, Ingrid has her own problems. Her new relationship with Detective Matt Noble is blossoming, but the pixies who accosted her in the park and are now asking for her help are at the center of his investigation into recent burglaries. Joanna meanwhile has received a message from the dead which she is struggling alone to decipher, and the best person she can think of to help her is her long estranged husband, Norman.One of the highlights of this book was the pixies and also the background information their story line provided into the different worlds which have been touched on in the previous book. World building and lore always get a thumbs up from me!Overall a very enjoyable and entertaining read. I am definitely looking forward to reading the next book.

    Am caught up with these books now, lost in the world of witches! Can't wait for the next one - there should have been more in the series. I'm a true fan, can't wait for more! A good read for sure!

    Lately I have been reading undemanding Regency novels whilst waiting for a hip replacement, my attention span not being what it was. I picked this up from the library,the title promisinga bit of stimulation.I was however drawn in to the story which increasingly became obvious as being a nod to some of my favourite operas, ie The Ring Cycle. Altho I love the music, I am not at all familiar with the story behind it.But from the first bells were ringing.Now you don.t need to know anything about opera to enjoy this novel, but if you have an incling about Wagner,s Ring Cycle then the references to the characters draw you in.Having said that,you can just enjoy the story, knowing nothing about the background,which stands on it.s own.I need to get the previous novel, and look forward to the next one. A thoroughly good read!

    Showing her research all over the place, sometimes for no damn reason. Also she over explains things as if she doesn't trust her audience to decipher them eg when the pixies speak modern slang or Ingrid and her beau don't. The bit about the 'mackerel sky' was mentioned, described, explained twice. I mean, please woman.There also seem to be a lot of unnecessary waffling and overly-flowery descriptions.Story is still somewhat interesting (or else it's my stubbornness driving me on), but I'm throwing in a few eye rolls because it's as if the plot was skeletal and a lot of what she writes is padding. I could do without half of the book.The first book is better and I'm about to blaspheme, I CANNOT BELIEVE I'm saying this, but the TV series is much better.And what's with the chapters being named after verses of pop music?

    Enjoyed reading about the continuation of Ingrid and Matts relationship. I found Freddies character incredibly annoying (maybe I was meant to?) The weird time travelling storyline for Joanna felt...out of place. But as thats the premise for the next book I guess it couldnt be left out! Enjoyed nonetheless, but not as much as book 1

    Still reading and currently enjoying! I love how much more to the story there is in relation to the TV series, definitely worth a read if you like fantasy, pixies,steamy romance,even scientific and magical elements linking together; more characters!

    Disappointing, I had watched the Witches of East End on Netflix and was hoping this would give more background info or continue the story giving more depth. Sadly It didn't hence low rating. Took 3 hours to read.
