Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Rosemary's Baby meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer in this breezy chick lit thriller about an American in Paris swept off her feet by a rich-and-good-looking New Yorker with some very dangerous secrets. Then again, aspiring architectural designer Jane Boyle has some hidden skeletons of her own, which she discovers when her estranged grandmother Celine leaves a death-note revelation that clueless Jane comes from a long line of witches. What follows as Jane moves with her handsome fiancé Malcolm Doran to Manhattan's Upper East Side is a frightening cascade of wickedness that forces Jane to match witchy wits with Malcolm's mom-from-hell, Lynne, negotiate a mansion-full of Mean Girls and a Boo Radley-like stalker—and test drive her own considerable powers. A scary face-off between Jane and Lynne is both hilarious and exciting. And though the frantic and elaborate finale may leave the future of fledgling witch Jane in question, first-time author Pierce neatly leaves open a creaky, spooky door for a slew of sequels for fans of gothic social climbing and the supernatural. (Feb.)

From Booklist

Jane Boyle can�t believe it when fabulously wealthy American Malcolm Doran comes into her life and sweeps her off her feet. An orphan raised in the rural Alsace region of France by a superstitious, overprotective grandmother, she moved to Paris to study architecture. But after a whirlwind courtship and engagement, Jane agrees to leave Paris and return to New York with Malcolm. Shortly before leaving France, Jane discovers that she has magic powers�she�s a witch. And when she meets Malcolm�s family, one of the oldest and most powerful in New York, she knows that her magic will be useless against them, especially Malcolm�s very intimidating mother, Lynne. But as her wedding day gets closer, Jane discovers that there�s more to the Dorans than she thought, and her magic might be the only thing that will save her. Pierce�s first novel is a clever, engaging story for those who like their Gossip Girl tales with a little edge. --Hilary Hatton

I found 666 Park Avenue a refreshing change from the usual paranormal about vamps or shifters. I love that the story is very fast paced and chick-lit in feel. Usually authors go overboard with back-story but Pierce only included the tidbits that were important and left me wanting to know more about the story of Ambika and the seven witch families. This book is a perfect example of what a first novel should be. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series, Dark Glamour.

Format: Paperback
If The Devil Wears Prada married Rosemary's Baby and had their way with Cate Tiernan's Sweep series, then I think the resulting offspring would probably come out a little bit like this.

Before I get started with my review, I have to stress that this is more chick lit than urban fantasy. To be honest, this is really more of a new genre- not quite chick lit but not quite urban fantasy or supernatural/horror thriller. It doesn't even really fit into the paranormal romance genre either. As such, there's going to be a few who will probably be a little weirded out by this book. That's OK as long as they don't completely dismiss it because this book is a very easy & interesting read.

The premise of the book (boy meets girl then discovers wicked mother in law) isn't very new, nor is the addition of magic, yet Pierce does a pretty good job of mixing it all into something that's a little new. Jane's a little bit of an average girl in the heroine category, but she's got gumption. Despite being overwhelmed by everything, she refuses to play the victim but doesn't go the "spunky/happy/gritty" route that other heroines tend to be in magic related fiction. Readers will really love the description of magic in this world, but some might get frustrated that we only get to see a brief glimpse of it here.

Some might get a little discouraged that much of the action doesn't really happen until the later part of the book or that there's not a huge amount of chemistry between Jane & her fiancee. Stick with it guys- there's a reason for the chemistry & while Jane does take a while to really get rolling with her magic, it does help make it a little more realistic. (After all, the average person would probably take that long to get started, being so overwhelmed.

I love books about the supernatural. This one I loved because the main character was so modern. I felt like I could actually relate to her and the way she reacted to some situations. She was a woman who thought she met the man of her dreams. I honestly felt bad for her when things went array.

Format: Paperback
I began watching 666 Park Avenue the night the pilot episode aired and I was quickly hooked. Somehow soon after I found the original novel by Gabriella Pierce, 666 Park Avenue: A Novel, here on Amazon. The story line of that book is quite different from the the story line on the show. If this book (the Official TV Tie-in Edition) is the same as the original I mentioned above, then this story is not the same either. (Publishers have a tendency to repackage books adapted to film by simply putting a new cover on them.)

That said, the book really isn't bad. I enjoyed it enough to want to read the two sequels that Gabriella Pierce has written: The Dark Glamour: A 666 Park Avenue Novel and The Lost Soul: A 666 Park Avenue Novel, the latter of which is being released in early January. As a lover of supernatural fiction I find it very difficult to find high-quality novels in this genre; there is a fine line between the ability to peak a reader's curiosity and causing outright skepticism. I think Gabriella Pierce does a decent job with this book and I can see why the general concept was picked up for TV - just don't expect the same story!

The book is mildly entertaining but written on a third grade level. Very poor writing and so many product placements it reads like a commercial.

I have heard this book called a lot of complimentary things and people really seem to like it; but if you are a serious fan of any of the genres that this book is dealing with you may have problems with it like I did.

This book is trying to be too many things all at one time. It is trying to be a romance, a horror, a speculative fiction book and a chick lit all rolled into one, and it does not work. There is too little of each to make up a satisfying whole.

The so-called heroine is whiny, a tad too trusting with near strangers, silly almost to the point of being stupid. Her character was in this day and age, nearly unbelievable.
I had to force myself to finish the book just to find out that the sexual bliss she and Malcolm shared was not natural...or was it?

The plot was thin nearly to the point of invisibility. There was little to no suspense since the reader could always quite clearly see what was up the road - there was never anything to look forward to.

Perhaps this will make a better TV show than a book, maybe the TV writers can take this and fill it out, and make it plausible.
