In this fine last day of April, I’m going to talk about a published fanfiction of Charmed.
Date with Death was written by Elizabeth Lenhard. As I started my collection many years ago, all my books on Charmed are in French. This one is no exception.
Date with Death (or “Démons sur le net”) is an attempt to mix magic with technology in the same story. Somehow, Paige gets infected via a virus on her computer which transmits to every man she looks in the eyes and makes them go berserk.
Unfortunately, the plot is poor and the develpment is cliché. As I grow older, I have more and more difficulties to appreciate those little fanfictions. Piper, Phoebe and Paige are flat characters and their actions are predictible. The mix between magic, technology and Ancient Greece is rather awkward.
It was, however, a nice break from longer readings.
I rated it 2*/5.
