Title: A tale of two Pipers  
     
Creatures: Darklighters normally work on their own, living for the simple thrill of killing whitelighters. They have no loyalty to one another, ever since their
leader Malagon has been banished to a middling realm by the source.

A tall afro-american woman who was once a civil rights leader

Shamus, elder
He is overseeing the transition of new ascenders from mortal to whitelighter as well as training whitelighters

Laureen, young whitelighter

Shrev, darklighter
Christov, darklighter

Malagon, demon
In the later 19th century Malagon registered his 100 whitelighter kill and was
exalted by the demon realm for his service to black magic.The Source rewarded Malagon by ascending him to demon status but soon regreted this move when Malagon made a play for the Source's throne.
Malagon was banished to a middling realm for his crimes against The Source.
For the last century his darklighter brethren have attempted to break him free of
his purgatory but have yet to find the key.
Malagon is tall and broad as a giant with long, flowing blond hair.
He got vanquished by the Charmed Ones.

Summary: Too much work and no time for play have made Piper a major stress case. When a seemingly harmless wish comes true, it looks like the problem's solved. Two Pipers can do twice as much work, leaving one Piper to party the night away and the other to finally have time to relax. While one Piper's home baking, the other can give an interview. Two Pipers? Too perfect.

But soon it becomes clear that two heads -- and bodies -- aren't always better than one. When Darklighters kidnap Leo and hold him hostage in exchange for the Charmed Ones' powers, one of the Pipers doesn't even seem to care. And then both Pipers' powers fade, leaving them useless and sick. Phoebe and Paige scramble to find a reversal spell, but without Leo's help, and with Piper split in two, will the Power of Three become powerless?

Summary: 8 out of 12  
  Like in 3x09 Coyote Piper it's quite funny when Piper becomes careless and fun loving. The story string of the seducing warlock however is boring and does not much to drive the story. I don't understand why almost all authors insist in sending some evil guy after the Charmed Ones without them realising what is going on. This book is no exception.
Nevertheless it's amusing to read.
