Move over, zombies, vampires, and werewolves, and make way for witches. Melissa de la Cruz, author of the best-selling Blue Bloods series, ably sets the stage for a juicy new franchise with Witches of East End, the tale of the Beauchamp women — Joanna and her daughters Freya and Ingrid, who had their powers stripped back in the 17th century. But as they say, magic will out, and the women begin to dabble again just as a bunch of mysterious happenings start plaguing their small Long Island town. De la Cruz balances the supernatural high-jinksery with unpredictable twists and a conclusion that nicely sets up book 2. B+
