Random quote: "Cole's at a homeless shelter, cooking," Phoebe said. "Ever since we vanquished his demon half, he's been trying to spend time volunteering. It's his way of making up for his past evils."
"I've tasted his cooking. He might want to find another way," Piper smiled.

Rating: humor: 2 out of 3 possible
tension: 1 out of 3 possible
story: 1 out of 3 possible

Summary: 5 out of 12  
  The stories have not much to do with the wicca dates although. Each has one of the sisters as central character but leaves room for the others too.
Samhain can be considered the one with the most tension since although the ending is predictable. Imbolc is the most funny due to Paige's uncontrollable orbing but it lacks tension. Yule has a quite silly plot and the end is so predictable that there is no tension at all.
Fortunately the authors for once do without telling the story of the Charmed Ones to the reader as it is the habit in all other fiction books.
