We call upon the ancient power...
It's been six months since the Charmed Ones reunited with their lost sister, and the world looks nothing like it did before. The magical community is powerless while everyday humans can suddenly control magic. Earth is cut off from the Heavens and the Underworld. And the Power of Three has completely abandoned Piper, Phoebe and Paige.
What began as a weird magical glitch has quickly developed into a full-on crisis. The formerly powerless humans of the world are letting their new gifts go out of control. Neighbours are turning on one another while the government is tracking down former magic users to find out what they know about this odd turn of events. Even worse, the Charmed Ones can't do a thing about it since the one person that could help them has disappeared from their lives once again.
Another fantastic instalment in the Charmed comic series that's filled with beautiful artwork, fast-paced stories and our favourite characters.
This volume takes place six months after Paige and Henry adopt Henry Jnr. The world has fallen into chaos as the magical community, including the Charmed Ones, become powerless, while the everyday humans become very powerful, using their magic for evil. The Charmed Ones are on the run for the government, this time for NOT having powers (talk about a crazy turn of events) and they are desperate to find out how the reverse Rennek's master plan. Just when they escape the wrath of the now-magical community, they have to face Rennek in a monstrous battle, where it seems like the Charmed Ones may fail at protecting themselves, and reuniting the realms.
It is so great to have the story of the Charmed Ones continued, and this volume did not fail at bringing yet another interesting story that sees the sisters nearly lose it all, but save the entire world at the last moment. I have to admit, I was a bit lost at the beginning of the story, as I had forgotten about what had happened in the previous volume, but once I had my head around everything that was happening, I really enjoyed the story.
I really enjoyed the return of some of our favourite characters, my favourite being Daryl - I missed having him around to help the sisters! With this volume being the conclusion of season 9, it was a really great close to these stories, and it really felt like a season finale. Even to the point where the final scene sees the door to the manor close like it does in every season final.
I am really excited to see what is in store for season 10, especially now that two characters seemed to have returned permanently, so I can't wait to see how everything will play out. I just love Charmed so much!
If you are a fan of Charmed, then you NEED to get these graphic novel/comic bind-ups RIGHT NOW! They are a perfect continuation of the season and season 9 has been truly magical and it has been great to be back with the Halliwell's again.
