    This book is phenomenal.

    All the time I read contemporary, and mostly NA romance that I forgot how fun and amazing paranormal and YA books can be.

    The whole story is captivating and mysterious. It pulls you in and you can't stop reading. I loved the characters, both main and supporting. They are well developed. There were moments when I wanted to punch Mara in the face, but at the same time I can totally understand where she's coming from.

    I want more of this series, and I want it NOW.

    Brilliant in

    Genre: Paranormal Romance

    Holy cow can Ms. Smeltzer conjure up a beautiful story! Follow Mara (doll face) on her mystical journey of discovering who she really is with the help of her protector Theodore (Theo).

    Follow the battle between the Enchanted (good) vs the Iniquitous (bad) to see which side comes up victorious. I wish I had my own “magical powers” to see into the future, because with the cliffhanger we are left with – dang I need some answers!!

    I've read pretty much all of this author's contemporary books, but I've only read one of her paranormal series'! I knew that she was supposed to publish this book a few years ago and then she ended up not doing so, so I was very sad about that! So it's fair to say that I was very excited when the author announced that she was publishing this book and the other two books in the trilogy! I signed up for the Blog Tour as soon as I saw one and I started my ARC as soon as I received it! After reading

    I've read pretty much all of this author's contemporary books, but I've only read one of her paranormal series'! I knew that she was supposed to publish this book a few years ago and then she ended up not doing so, so I was very sad about that! So it's fair to say that I was very excited when the author announced that she was publishing this book and the other two books in the trilogy! I signed up for the Blog Tour as soon as I saw one and I started my ARC as soon as I received it! After reading, I can say that I loved this book a lot! It held my interest all the way through and only took me a few sittings to read too! I wish I had read it slower so that it lasted longer lol! The plot also had quite a lot in it and had a few action and suspense scenes too! There weren’t too many action and suspense scenes, but the romance was at the forefront of the plot! I loved the romance! There was a bit of a love triangle too and this fuelled the plot and allowed for more things to happen! The characters were also amazing and made this book even better! Mara was the main character, and in this book she went through a lot in a short space of time! This made me feel sorry for her because she was ripped from the life that she knew and was told a lot about her real life and about what she really was! I think that Mara handled it all very well and she adjusted quickly to her new life! Mara also had two potential love interests in this book and I liked that she didn’t drag both guys along and play them off against each other! I connected with Mara all the way through this book too! Theodore "Theo" was the main love interest of Mara! I loved Theo a lot in this book! He had a hard, tough exterior, but underneath it all he was such a loving, caring guy! Theo was also very, very protective of Mara! This was completely understandable because it was his job to keep her safe and out of danger! It was also easy to see Theo’s real feelings for Mara! He really loved her, but he shouldn’t be in love with her, so sometimes he was distant with her and wasn’t the nicest! I could understand why he was like this! This book was only written from Mara's point of view! I wasn't sure if it was going to be written from only one point of view or from dual point of view after I read the synopsis! I was slightly sad that Theo's point of view wasn't in the book, but maybe the author will write a few chapters from Theo's point of view in one of the next two books! I can also completely understand why this book was only written from Mara's point of view! It was her journey and about the changes that she went through! I also can't wait to read the next book in this series! I'm not sure when the next book is going to release because all it says on Goodreads is late 2017, but I'll definitely be anticipating its release and hopefully it does release before the end of the year because I can’t wait to find out what’s going to happen! The cover for this book is also absolutely stunning! It would definitely draw me to the book and make me want to read the story behind it if I saw it! I love how well it suits the book and the cover models on the front are the perfect Mara and Theo too! Big thank you to Micalea for an ARC of Enchant and to Good Choice Reading Promotions for having me on the Blog Tour!

    4.5 STARS!!!

    This was such a great paranormal read of good v's evil. The story follows Mara and her protector Theodore as they prepare for a battle of Enchanted v's Iniquitous and what a story it is.

    This was such a great paranormal read of good v's evil. The story follows Mara and her protector Theodore as they prepare for a battle of Enchanted v's Iniquitous and what a story it is. This story is filled with suspense from the very beginning and ends the same way. There were laughs, bickering, friendships and enemies between these characters and it was both amusing and frustrating at times. There were times I wanted them to act more mature than their age, but I loved the chemistry between Mara and Theo, they were so right for each other it was irritating. I felt bad for Winston but the heart wants what the heart wants. Adelaide was another character in this story that will have you smiling, she was too much but I loved her. I really enjoyed most of the characters in this story and this one ends with a huge cliffhanger that left me wanting and anticipating the next read. I also look forward to the growth of the characters in the next book because once they come into their full powers they will be unstoppable.

    This is the first fantasy book I have read from Micalea and I really, really enjoyed it!! I loved getting to know Mara and Theo and I want more. I did feel that it was a little jumbled at parts but felt it was more about the story building for the rest of the series/triolgy than a lacking to the story. There is action, romance, and adventure. This is an adventure that I encourage you to take!!

    I came, I saw, I read it, and I came to the conclusion that this book has about as much emotional range as a rock.

    That said I am giving it extra stars for a somewhat unique plot line.

    The whole problem stems from my inability to get invested in the characters. And it's not like they are doing anything to make it so I will.

    That said I am giving it extra stars for a somewhat unique plot line.

    The whole problem stems from my inability to get invested in the characters. And it's not like they are doing anything to make it so I will. The text moves quickly without making appropriate cues and observations about feelings. It is all about feelings. And detailing why the character feels the way they do -- not just constantly repeating the same phrases such as "it will never happen" and "how does something so wrong, feel so right?". I want details! I want to know specifics and WHY it can't happen, why this makes them feel the way they do. When someone dies, make it so that I am mourning their passing instead of feeling like, 'Well, I didn't know them that well anyway.' Give me a reason to care!!!!!

    So that is how I feel about this book. It's missing some key details and emotional depth. Bug time. Fix these things, and I'd recommend it to everyone.

    Enchant is a YA paranormal romance about Mara Pryce. She's just an ordinary seventeen-year-old who's just graduated high school. At her graduation, a mysterious, grey-eyed guy shows and suddenly disappears. Mara is convinced he's just a figment of her imagination. Then one day he returns and she discovers she's an Enchanter, a witch. Theodore, the grey-eyed guy, takes her to a safehouse, where she'll remain hidden and learn about her powers.

    When I first read the synopsis, this book seemed right up my alley. I mean, a girl who's just graduated high school who learns she's a witch? Yes, please! I

    these kinds of books, especially when they're

    set in High School. Looking back at the synopsis after reading it, though... I didn't like it as much and felt like it's almost a synopsis for a

    book. Apparently Enchanters are part of an ancient

    like, but.... There's nothing about that in the book? There's also something about a war, and yes, there's a little bit about said war in the book, but by far not enough, for my taste. Plus, the "real threat is closer to home than they want to believe"? I must've missed that part.

    I also felt like the book has too many similarities to

    by Cassandra Clare. First of all "All the stories are true"?! Erm, yeah, heard that before. I'm not saying it's 100% exclusive to The Mortal Instrument, but the book also has a garden scene. Which is about 99% the same as in COB. I think there's even more, but I also think I've made my point.

    There are things I

    like, though! I kinda liked Mara and Theodore, although not all the time, especially when Theorode kept calling Mara 'doll face'.

    I loved Winston and his British accent, and Theo's sister Adelaide. I loved their (realistic!) sibling relationship. Overal I liked their friend group in the safe house.

    That was really cleverly done because although I had no interest in the sequel, I kind of

    want to read it just to see how it'll continue, omg!

    Look, I knew what I was getting into when I read the blurb of this book. It's the sort of premise that dominates paranormal books (particularly those of the last couple years). You know, a 'normal' girl who meets a mysterious (dark, hot and usually insufferable) boy who tears apart everything she knows, and shows her that she's actually -insert paranormal creature here-.

    Digital ARC provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

    Look, I knew what I was getting into when I read the blurb of this book. It's the sort of premise that dominates paranormal books (particularly those of the last couple years). You know, a 'normal' girl who meets a mysterious (dark, hot and usually insufferable) boy who tears apart everything she knows, and shows her that she's actually -insert paranormal creature here-. Not just any -insert paranormal creature-, oh no. She's a special one. He whisks her away to a new life, where she must learn to embrace who she is, because everyone now depends on her.

    This book had that down to the literal Chosen One title.

    I knew this from the opening chapter, honestly. I really knew that I had to be careful going in -- either to accept it for what it was, or to close the book and leave it to those who aren't so picky. Because I know I can be quite picky when it comes to these books. 

    I think it's because this kind of book used to be a favourite of mine. I was a sucker for bad boys and girls secretly finding out they have powers that they then go off and learn how to use...

    And maybe I still am a bit of a sucker because I kept reading even as I rolled my eyes....

    The thing is, this book did have the bones to be a pretty decent story. I mean, this cliche was a cliche for a reason. This premise can work really well, and it's kinda addictive to read by nature of the whole finding out about this world with the protagonist under the threat of the dark, ever looming evil forces. I liked the idea of a group of enchanters split, and the 'good' now sequestered into safe houses across the world, trying to protect and educated other enchanters before the 'bad' can get to them. I liked the idea of protectors... a lot...

    And I am a very very big sucker for a good bad boy. Especially one in a role as cool as a protector. I mean the idea of people being paired for reasons outside of their control, and pushed together like Mara and Theodore were is something I enjoy. I really liked that Theodore was a protector, but also his own person? I mean that in the sense that Theodore was his own character who'd grown up without Mara and wasn't defined by her, but also his entire role was in looking out for her.

    But.... Theodore bugged the hell out of me, mostly because he was inconsistent. I mean this boy was supposed to live or die for her, but he'd spend his life antagonising her, and freaking out and picking dumb fights. One moment it's "don't leave my sight" the next he's disappearing off to do his own thing. And to be honest, I was willing to look at that as a sort of conflict of his role vs. him being his own person but...

    He was a bit of a dickhead. Like when he is angry at Winston and finds out that he's reading Pride and Prejudice he says "I didn't know you had a vagina" (which reaaaaally tested any soft spot I had for him tbh). And then later it comes up that he reads books and its supposed to be some awwe soft boy moment, but all I could remember is that comment?? Like how did she not call him out for that, Mara got as angry as I did when she heard him in the first place.

    He's also all over the place with what he wants from Mara, which creates a lot of conflict between them that shouldn't be there, if he needs to keep her safe. I mean, she needs to be able to trust him no matter what, and she can't if he's acting all over the place.

    And then there was the issue of romance. It's hard to say a lot without spoilers, but the were some weird skips around that didn't make a lot of sense to me. I mean I knew, again, that with the premise we'd have some sort of angst. The whole protectors can't date thing was always going to be a blockade in an obvious romance, but even for the premise it was a little random.

    Mara didn't bug me as much. I mean she wasn't always the easiest for me to connect to, and I haaaated that we saw glimpses of girl on girl hate (esp @ Naomi), but she did keep me reading? Although, I must also say that I wish she'd been a little more... caught up? Normally I dislike how long these protagonists refuse to believe what they're seeing, but Mara accepted everything very quickly.

    . It would have given a lot of depth to her character to see those kinds of emotions.

    But she was very capable of holding her own, and her acceptance meant that we skipped the whole "you've got the wrong girl!" thing. For the most part. Her training with Theodore was nice to see - I liked to see that it required work and lots of practise. Though I'm still not sure why they didn't do that in her classes. I'm also still not sure why they started all these classes like it was a school year when there were only twenty people?

    I guess what I'm trying to say is that this book could have been a pretty good?? take on a paranormal premise, but it fell into a lot of the same traps. And that would have been cool, I mean I'll roll my eyes at cliches and continue reading if I like the characters. But Mara could have used a little more depth, and Theodore had me until some of his dickhead comments..... (Like honestly?? if not for that line I would have probably really enjoyed him).

    But all this said, I did read the book in one sitting. And I am kinda interested by where the author will take it after that cliffhanger of an ending.
