Charmed: The War on Witches

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.

 

Protectors of the innocent, the Charmed Ones—sisters Piper, Phoebe, and Paige—believe their days battling the forces of darkness are behind them. With everything at peace in the world, the sisters turn their attention to living private lives…until a dangerous new power intent on stealing their magic—and that of all of the world's witches—emerges.
