I have only just started reading the book and I love it!! Like I said in another review I did, I would love to meet Holly Marie Combs because I think that in the show she has the hardest life of the three sisters and because in another book where she does a personal interview she shows me and everyone who reads the book that she truely cares about the teenage girls that watch her show!! I think she is a totally awesome person and I would do absoultly anything to meet her in person!!

In my opinion this book is the best among all the Charmed books. It's funny and it focuses on Piper.
Unlike other Charmed books in which a lot of "strangers" are introduced, this book focuses highly on the three sisters and Leo.
I really enjoy this book and would recommend those who loves Piper to read this book.

This book was right on the money as far as Piper's personality. She is always struggling within herself between what she wants to do and what she has to do. I feel the writer truly understood that before she wrote this book. I felt pulled in, I felt a part of the story. It was like watching one of the shows. There wasn't too much stupid humor like the author just wanted to prove to her audience that she knew the Halliwells. Instead, it was perfect. Loved it. Great plot, exceptional writing - great flow!! Would definitely buy books by Emma Harrison again!

THIS BOOK WAS AWSOME!!!

I thought this was the best charmed book that I have read (even though they didn't do an episode for it) And it really showed what Piper was feeling with all of the trouble she was going through.

I love Charmed(as you probably can tell) and i really thought you were kind of in the book in the way that the author wrote this book. I would totally recomend it to other people.

I bought this book solely based on the fact that the story was revolved around Piper instead of Phoebe or Paige. Good book but it sounds kinda like the episode "Which Prue is it anyway".

this is a great charmed book i mainly like the fact that it focused mainly on leo and the ''four'' sisters plus the elders who everyone has a love hate relationship with in the series are involved quiet a bit in this story. basically piper doubles her self and take full advantage of it (as we all would ) one staying at home relaxing the other one out there the life of the party. this of course leads to quiet a few laughs i think this is one of the best charmed books releasd for a while even if the ending is slightly see through. good read

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book had a rather interesting and unique plot. I thought it was pretty compelling, giving the background summary on the back page of the book. But I found the story draggy, long-winded and slow. The real action occurs every now and then, but the story didn't have usual intriguing feel to it, in comparison to other Charmed books. Some parts of the book made me feel like sighing in frustration at the long-winded'ness'. Piper 2's character is very unlike Piper's regular demeanor, which goes to show that maybe there is a possibility of Piper 2 not being Piper herself at all. What I don't understand is how both Pipers are strong and powerful but get all weak and sick after that within a very, very short period of time, and have their powers detoriating so quickly. The part on the Darklighters seemed quite unnecessary during the times which Paige thought they were after her.

What I couldn't get was how the sisters did not do anything much to solve the double Piper situation, other than consulting the Book of Shadows. Usually, they will practically go to the extent to save their sister's life, but this time, the book focused more on Piper, less on Phoebe and Paige, let alone what they needed to do to reverse the repercussions of this situation. Also, all 3 sisters did not have their usual spunk, wit or charm in this book, which is rather disappointing.

Overall, I somehow enjoyed it, but I can guarantee, you may find yourself putting down the book and being tentative about continuing to read it, when you come across some parts of the story.

*SPOILERS* You have to understand the show, the characters, and what the author was trying to say in order to really appreciate this book. The author wasn't portraying Piper as an "I'm going to do whatever I want girl!", she was saying that was a side to Piper that was there, but never got to come out. Piper was split in two so a part of her personality went one way and the other part went the other way. The thing is, Piper comes across as an extremely level-headed, very balanced character on the show, but she does have that part of her that yearns to do whatever she wants--i.e. the part of her that went against every rule in the book and had her date and marry Leo. Don't forget that Piper had other boyfriends besides Leo and she did want a life all of her own (let's not also forget that she was with a very hot fireman after Leo "divorced" her). Piper wasn't completely stuffy, but she did want a normal life and I guess that's what made her seem a bit more reserved than Paige or Phoebe. When Prue was around she was always playing mediator, but when Prue died she had to suddenly become more grown up, the oldest sister, more responsibility. I think in a way Piper was always my favorite sister and I think the author did a wonderful job with her character in this book. For those who were saying that the other Piper didn't hold any of her attributes, you're wrong, and either you don't watch the show diligently or you just don't get it. I've heard this was the best book out of all the Charmed books and I've never bought or read another (I bought this one years ago). Every true fan of Charmed should own this book.
