Title: Seasons of the witch, vol. 1
Samhain
 
     
Creatures: Qualmor, demon
Tall with dark blond hair and brown eyes, this demon was born about 3000 years ago. He was a witch hunter for centuries.
A touch of his hand causes his enemy to feel paralysed and this way he could steal witches' powers by draining their life force.
He was vanquished by the Master.

Serving demon
Dark green demon, wearing a black hood
On it's own, it is harmless. But a master can endow this demon with his own powers, making him dangerous.

The master, demon
An ancient demon with strong magic who can also create space portals
There are only two known ways to vanquish him:
1 - to melt him in lava so he can not take solid form again
2. send Qualmor after him

The Master and Qualmor are mortal enemies and exist to fight each other. However, if one of them ever wins, both will be vanquished.
Vanquished because he killed Qualmor.


Pamela Bousquet
, witch
ancestor
in the Halliwell line
A blond woman with pale creamy skin and green eyes.

She put a love spell on the demon Qualmor, so he felt in love with her and didn't want to take her powers anymore. They married and lived quite happily for about 10 years before Pamela died
somewhen during the French revolution (1789-1799).
When she was alive she used a spell to put her powers into a pendant so they would still exist after her death. She wanted the pendant being buried with her.

Her powers:
telepathy and invisibility

Madame Skipsha, mortal
An old fortune teller who occassionally helps both sides
 
     
Spells: to summon an ancestor:

Halliwell witches, hear us three
Into your world now let us see
On Samhain the veil is thin
Pull it back and let us in

to remove the love spell:

A love for me I created in thee.
But now I wish you to be free
Forget your love, for it is not true
From my love spell, I now release you

to bind the master:

Like a damper to your flame
like a rope to tie your hands
Let your powers be contained
Until you leave these lands

to send Pamela back:

Halliwell witches, hear us three
Into our world we let her see
On Samhain the veil is thin
Pull it back and take her in

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