Title: Something wiccan this way comes  
     
Creatures: Anubi, demons
Very tall, wearing long black robes, Anubi have large, shiny jackal heads with long snouts, blank staring eyes and
large black claws

The first record of the Anubi originated in ancient Egypt in the Nile delta.
They were demigods, followers of the god Anubis, who decided the fate of the soul upon death. After betraying Anubis, the Anubi were cast off to live a mortal life and to die a mortal death.
Decades after their banishment, as the Anubi began to grow weak, they went to a witch to demand a spell that
would return them to demigods before their imminent death.
When the witch couldn't help them, they killed her and drank her blood. It is in this way that they discovered that they gained strength from the blood of witches and could live forever off their blood.

Anubi drain the blood and keep it in canisters to be stored and used later. They need to drink only a bit at a time.
They can be vanquished by a Power of Three spell.

Summary: Paige Matthews is new to the whole "Power of Three" thing, and looking to explore her powers. So when she reads of a Wiccan convention taking place just outside of Las Vegas, she thinks it's a great opportunity for her and for her sisters to learn more about their witchy ways. Though the girls are all over saving innocents, they aren't that heavy into Wicca practices, and Paige thinks the retreat could be enlightening.

Piper and Phoebe, however, aren't so sure. They're certain that while they spend their days battling honest-to-badness black magic, their so-called supernatural sisters will be nothing more than a bunch of blessed wanna-bes. Soon though, they hear of a rash of murders committed against practicing Wiccans, and making an appearance at the convention becomes top priority. But as they head for the desert campgrounds, are the Charmed Ones headed straight for disaster?

Summary: 1 out of 12  
  Don't let the title fool you. Nothing wiccan in this book and apart from tossing cliches in the author has not given much thought about wicca.
Read if you are very desperate.
