Review:This is an introduction to Melissa De La Cruz's adult series The Beauchamp Family. This is a series about a family of witches, the Beauchamp women. Joanna, Ingrid and Freya. Freya was in one of the stories in Melissa De La Cruz's book Bloody Valentine (A Blue Bloods Book).
In this primer there are the first three chapters of the first book in the series. As well as information about each of the Beauchamp women. Including their special powers and some of their favorite spells.
The writing was interesting and enjoyable just as in her Blue Bloods series. I know this an adult series but it was only the first three chapters so it was hard to tell how mature the content got. There was one part that would be a little mature for younger teenagers I think, but nothing over the top.
What I enjoyed the most were the profiles of each of the Beauchamp women. I enjoyed learning about their powers, personality, and favorite spells.
Enjoyable and I will have to check out the series one day. But for now, I have other things on my reading list that take priority.
I think I give this one 4 stars.
