Luck Be a Lady


Truth and Consequences is the 21st book of the Charmed novels.

This book takes place between Season 4 Episode 12 "Lost and Bound" and Episode 13 "Charmed and Dangerous", as Cole is still human and at this point engaged to Phoebe. This places it before several other Charmed novels, even though it was published after.


Earth, water, fire, air,
Aid me in this task I dare.
Where Cole wanders let me see.
As I will,
So mote it be.

Cole is working late, and her sisters are having a girls' night in, so on the spur of the moment, Phoebe accepts what seems like an innocent date with a friendly stranger. But good intentions are quickly misconstrued when Cole leaves work early to surprise Phoebe—and is stunned to find her sharing a drink with another man.

Cole can't believe that Phoebe would betray him, and Phoebe can't believe Cole would even think she'd betray him. Their escalating argument quickly high-lights some fundamental trust issues they each harbor. But soon they discover themselves trapped in the Underworld, at the center of a lovelorn demon's plot to destroy the Power of Three. If Cole and Phoebe can't reconcile their suspicions and insecurities, there's more than their own relationship at risk!



Magical Notes


Scrying Spell to Locate Cole

Earth, water, fire, air,
Aid me in this task I dare.
Where Cole wanders, let me see,
As I will, so mote it be.

To Summon Phoebe and Cole from the Underworld

Earth, air, water, fire,
Give me now my heart's desire,
What I call home, bring here to me.
As I will, so mote it be,
Bring me Phoebe and Cole.
