Tour & GIveaway: Enchant (Enchanted #1) by Micalea Smeltzer



Enchant (Enchanted #1) by Micalea Smeltzer.
Audience/Genre: Mature Young Adult, Paranormal, Romance.
Publication: November 17th 2017.
Mara Pryce never imagined that her life was anything but normal and then a strange gray-eyed young man appears at her graduation. When he vanishes without a trace, she’s convinced he’s a figment of her imagination. Then he appears again and shatters her whole world.

Mara is an enchanter, part of an ancient line of Wiccan power, and a war is raging—one of good and evil—between the Enchanted and the Iniquitous.

The Iniquitous want her dead and it’s Theodore’s job as her protector to keep her safe.

When Mara and Theodore arrive at a safe house, where Mara will remain hidden while learning about her powers, they find that the real threat might be a little closer to home than they want to believe.

Reviewed by Kelly.

Enchant is a swirling mix of emotions with characters who are complex and a story that makes you wonder what is going to happen next. This book is more of a baseline, I think, to the real fight that will ensue in the coming books. I think we learn more about who these characters are in this book; what they feel, and who they team up with. But also, as the reader we try to figure out who we can trust and know that the time for safety will come to the end soon enough.

Where the book is labeled young adult, I would say it reads more as a new adult or a mature young adult. They did act a lot like teenagers though, slightly immature at times. Sometimes it just read slow for me and other times fast. I wouldn’t let my teenager read it though. That’s just me.

Mara and Theodore dance this dance wanting to be together but the rules say they can’t as Protector and Chosen One. They are stuck like glue they should be together anyway. You fight harder for the ones you love in my opinion. But it doesn't matter because neither one's heart can live without the other.

His eyes flicked down to my lips and he groaned. "You are my greatest fight and my longest battle." Before I could process what his words meant, his lips stole my breath.

"You make me blind," he breathed against my lips. "Blind to my fears and my duties and everything I've ever known."

The story is definitely good vs evil and the origin of the Enchanters and Iniquitous shows how the evil ones pretty much sold their soul to the devil to become what they are. They want power and will kill to have what they want. They want the Enchanters dead.

We learn more about Mara’s family as time goes on. And her family is at the heart of all that is going on. So Mara is basically hunted. Mara learns her magic pretty fast!

So Mara and Theodore with Theo’s sister and Winston (another Chosen One) with Ethan and Nigel the cat are running at the end because all hell breaks loose and it leaves on a cliffhanger! How I hate cliffhangers!

If you like good vs evil, stories with fighting, magic, jealousy, bantering, safe houses, family and cliffhangers then this might be for you!
