Description:

Having won the ultimate battle against the forces of darkness, Piper, Phoebe, and Paige—, The Charmed Ones—, are looking forward to a hard-earned, peaceful future. But when Phoebe’s former love, Cole, returns from the dead and the sisters are reunited with Prue, now imprisoned at the magical convergence between the realms, a dangerous new threat emerges.
As seemingly normal mortals violently steal the magic of witches, The Charmed Ones must shield their kind while protecting themselves from a modern-day witch hunt.
Charmed: The War on Witches continues the story of the Halliwell witches, picking up where the hit television series, Charmed, left off. With only the Book of Shadows to guide them, the Halliwell sisters are the fulfillment of their ancestor Melinda Warren’s prophecy that three sisters descending from her line would become the most powerful witches of all time. As The Charmed Ones, the sisters use the Power of Three to protect the innocent and banish evil from the Earthly realm.

    When i first read the news i couldn't believe it! it's so amazing! We'll have more stories with Prue and Cole, with the Charmed Ones, and Pat/Paul working together means that they will care for the continuity so wow!

    What I don't get if is this will be along with the comics or if this won't have anything to do with the comics due that on season 10 Cole is already death, and on this novel he would probably be still kicking demons butts with the Charmed Ones

    Nice to see charmed back, I wished it was a novel, cant stand e-book. But still nice to see Prue is back in the book series.

    They should write alternate books based on a timeline where Prue didn't die.

    Wow new charmed books, awesome.

    Does the whole no shannen's image, mean she cant be on the cover art. Because once charmed ended, Prue was in the charmed magazines and covers, but I bet she wont be.

    Tre story will take place between season 9 and season 10.. So Prue will have Patience appearance and Cole is still alive because he will die in season 10! Maybe we'll see something about what happened between the swishes and Prue! I'm so exited!!!

    Great news! So is the novel canon then?

  • #13

    Bigbear (Saturday, 02 May 2015 20:28)

    I was wondering the same thing! Usually it's considered canon everything the creator or the person in charge is involved, and since it's written for the S9 writer, I guess it could be considered canon. But then again, if Brad Kern suddenly went and came up with a Charmed novel there's no force in heaven or hell that could convince me to consider it canon, so.. who knows.

  • #14

    p3nathan (Saturday, 02 May 2015 23:33)

    Well the novels aren't usually considered canon, but personally, I'll be considering it canon. If Paul's writing it and it is in line with the comics, I don't see why not.

    Pat said these books are canon - as for the other novels... some of those contradictions can be explained away so they technically could be called canon

    Guys we should do something about the sales. Not just to get a seadon 11 but season 10 is as good as the early seasons of the series its deserve bigger auidence. And when cbs posted something about charmed comics a lot of fan havent even heard about it. We should promote it somehow on facebook and twitter and explain them what the comic is about. or I dont know... something

    Scott21 (Sunday, 03 May 2015 08:04)

    And a lot of fan say that they dont want to read comics they want charmed movie or a season 9 with the original cast or the next generation series, but they have to understand CBS is a profit oriented company, the would NEVER order a revival or make a movie with a series that have this small audience in comics, if they get a lot of money from the comics they would realize how powerful the fandom is

    As much as I'm grateful to have the comics and read more stories about the sisters, we have to accept the fact that it's not just the same as having the show back. I love the comics and I'll follow them till the end, but they don't give me the same jolt I get when I watch an old episode. There's no way that reading some Prue e Piper drama can give me the same chills I'd get watching Shannen and Holly acting, and I guess it's the same thing for a lot of other fans. Charmed doesn't really shine in comics the same way it did as a show, it's just the way it is.

    yep bigbear, but given the fact that it´s not coming back anytime soon I better have comics and books than have the show be forgotten. Some chills and magic are better than none.
