There aren't a lot of surprises in this novel. Future revelations are pointed at early in the book with numerous comments. But even though there are plenty of signs pointing the way, it is still a fun journey.
The Charmed Ones are contacted early one morning by a witch fearing for her daughter. The woman does not trust other witches, or Whitelighters, but is worried that her daughter's witch powers have not manifested when the should have.
The sisters try to solve the mystery of the missing powers while also trying to balance the delicate 48-hour grace period when a witch aligns with good or evil.
Add the friends daughter, a trouble maker, and a demon with a grudge against generations of the family and you fast action with plenty of confusion so that, while you know where things are going, you're going to enjoy getting there.
In the end the mysteries are solved and loose ends are tied up as is typical in a Charmed novel. This one is better than many of the more recent Charmed books.

The summary of the book sound like the story would be really good. Theres a witch who should recieve her powers when she turns 13, but by a twisted fate they don't turn up. Now the Charmed ones have to solve this problem and a red faced demon.

Once I started reading the story it was slow. The plot was thin. I almost just stopped reading it. I have to say that the ending was predictable, but it was enjoyable. I just don't think I'll read the book again anytime soon.

This must have been the best book ever. Truely something you should buy if you are a true Charmed fan. Don't be fooled by the ugly cover. You will get hypnotized from the first page. Absolutely worth the money! What are you waiting for? Go buy it!

Inherit the Witch is one of the better Charmed books that I have read so far. It is an easy read book filled with lots of potions and spells. There are a few cuss words in the book so please be aware of that when you choose this book. Once I started Inherit the Witch I did not want to put the book down. It is full of action and surprises.

Short Summary-The Charmed ones have to help a young teenage witch (Lily) find her powers because she never received them on her 13th birthday like she was suppose to. Her mother Juliana is worried because the demon (Gortag) that has killed most of their family is after them. The sisters think that maybe Gortag has taken Lily's powers or maybe her best friend Drew has taken them. See if the Charmed ones can get Lily's powers back and defeat Gortag which no witch has ever been able to do before.

I loved the ending of this book. I thought it was really good and really surprising. I don't want to give it away though so read the book and find out for yourself.

If you loved the show then you'll love this book. The only drawback is that I wish they actually made this book into a episode in the series.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The Charmed Ones know it is difficult to get used to the idea of having powers and saving the world from evil. That's the reason their Grams banned their powers when they were young. They would recieve their powers when their ready.
In Juliana O'Farrell's clan, you recieve your powers when your thirteen. On her daughter Lily's birthday, for some reason she doesn't recieve her powers. And her best friend Drew is making her do the bad stuff she does. Could Drew be connected to Lily's missing powers?
But a transfer-power spell doesn't work. An O'Farrell ancestor won't switch Lily's powers that Drew accidentally got. And that's now all. A demon named Gortag who has many bodies is after Juliana and Lily. Maybe he's the one who switched the powers.
With some investigation, Piper, Phoebe, Paige, Juliana, Lily, Drew, and Leo don't find out that Drew's the witch...but an O'Farrell witch. And her parents are demons that switched Drew and Lily when they were babies. And all ends well when Lily meets her real father.

early one morning, a mother and daughter show up at the halliwell manison needing help. the 2 claim that they are witches and that every girl in their family gets her powers on her 13th birthday. the girl in question turned 13 the day before and still has no powers. after hearing the story, the charmed ones also learn that a powerful demon is after the family for a wrong done to him in the distant past.
so the charmed ones agree to help the poor girl out and find out that they are up against a powerful demon who seems pretty invinsible, and a typical rebellious teenager.
unlike what the previous reviewer said, i did not find the ending predictable. maybe a little boring, but definitely not predictable. if you are a die hard charmed fan than you will love this one. otherwise this is really a sleeper.
