    Things had been feeling off for Mara for a while, her dreams and unease as she approached graduation keep her looking over her shoulder constantly, but she never could have prepared for the night that changed everything. She finds herself on the run with a handsome guy named Theodore, filled with questions and fear as she leaves everything she's known behind her. Her old life is gone, in its place is a locked-down safe house, an over-protective j...

    I received an ARC of this book from the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book. 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 ...

    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. The text moves quickly without making appropriate cues and observations about feelings. It is all about feelings. And detail...

    Digital ARC provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This review can also be found here, on my blog!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 actu...

    I am slowly getting through all my NetGalley books. Which is really helping my stress level. Now to the actual review. I'm a simple person, I see anything paranormal (vampires and witches especially) and I got to read it or at the very least give it a try. So this one pulled me in quickly. I loved the characters and I thought everything was well done but the whole war part.... I just felt that it could've been more. Otherwise, I can't wait to rea...

    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!! This specific video review: (To be posted later in th...

    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 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 mo...

    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 star...

    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 m...

    Genre: Paranormal RomanceHoly 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...

    No, it's not out yet, but I was able to read an advanced copy and I loved it! I've always been a fan of Micalea's work, but hadn't read any of her paranormal books before this one. Now I need to go back and read the others. Add this to your TBR immediately if you're a Micalea fan or a paranormal fan. You won't regret it.

    This book was just okay. I actually struggled to finish the whole thing. Maybe it just wasn't my cup of tea, though supernatural is usually something I enjoy. One thing that irked me about this work was there was too many shower scenes. Why was everyone always taking a shower? The main character took two showers in the first chapter alone. The story was too fast past, it went from one thing to the next with out building up any suspense. I feel li...

    https://celebrityreaders.wordpress.co...2 stars -- I received a free copy in exchange for an honest and unbiased review/opinion.I hate when this happens.  I actually won an ARC of this book, but it just did not work out for me.  And that always bums me out.  I've never read anything by this author before, but I've heard great things about her contemporary books...so I'm uncertain if it's just that her voice doesn't shine through as well in no...

    This is a interesting take on the magic paranormal area. The ending is a cliffy but not a cliffy. I say this because during the book we get told something that can have you believe that what we are seeing isn’t going to happen but it may happen.The idea here is that Mara is a chosen one enchanter who is highly coveted. She is to do great things. What no idea. That is to come I believe. She doesn’t know she is an enchanter until Theo shows up ...

    **Copy provided by NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review**☆☆☆☆ 4.5 STARS ☆☆☆☆ Enchant is magically beautiful and will cast a spell on any reader. Mara and Theo’s story is complicated, but yet enchanting. I love the world that Author Micalea Smeltzer had created. She really shot an arrow through my heart, by creating this beautiful fantasy story that I love so much. Mara lived a normal life as human for many years, until h...

    I wanted every last one of the Iniquitous to bleed out beneath me. I wanted their blood to coat my hands and stain my clothes. I wanted them to cower at my name. " Enchant by Micalea Smeltzer, is a YA paranormal romance. Mara is a young girl not knowing the power that she wields within her. And as her birthday grows near, she is thrown into a world she never knew existed. Just as Mara is adjusting to her new life, she is in grave danger. The Iniq...

    ‘Enchant’ is a beautifully written YA paranormal romance. Though author Micalea Smeltzer makes use of some familiar YA tropes (teenage girl unknowingly about to come into her powers on her nearing birthday and is thrown into the hidden supernatural world she never knew she was born into) this book holds its own within the genre. I love the witty banter and teasing between main character Mara and her protector, Theodore. His younger sister, Ad...

    As this is the first book by Micalea Smeltzer that I've read I was really blown away. Immediately I looked up other books by her and purchased a few. Enchant was nothing like I expected in the best way possible. First of all I was drawn by the gorgeous cover, anyone that says covers don't sell books are lying. The synopsis is pretty vague but I'm happy for that as it didn't give anything huge away. The characters were all really interesting, the ...

    My mind is a mess of thoughts, suspicion, and assumptions! That ending just blew my damn mind.The story starts with a mystery feel. Our leads, Mara and Theo, at first I wasn't so sure about them, their perceived relationship, Theo came off as over confident and a jerk without much depth and Mara a bit naive and detached. However, the more I read the more I knew I was wrong. There was more, A LOT more to both of them, and their behaviour is more a...

    *This book was received via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*This was a really interesting read. I found the plot to be quite interesting and the characters were, for the most part, intriguing and likeable. I did at times, however, find Mara to be quite annoying and angsty. Also, her attraction to Theodore tended to dominate the plot too much, at times detracting away from the story line itself and becoming quite repetitive. Despite thi...

    This was a fun book, and while I kind of want to see the sequel(s), it'll be a hard time for me to actively seek them out.Mara is a regular teenager, living a regular life. Then as it goes, everything gets twisted upside down, her friend's crush gets murdered, and her dad's been kidnapped.Then she gets kidnapped by a guy who keeps flinging sexual innuendo at her, while telling her that he literally can't sleep with her, or else.It's a cliched rom...

    This was a quick and satisfying book that focuses on the romance more than anything, however we do get to see some fun magic. I liked that we got to see Mara actually training and working hard. Too often in “chosen one” stories, the lead character barely lifts a finger and they’re just naturally gifted, but Mara, while still having a natural affinity, still puts effort in. I’m hoping she keeps growing and becomes a badass magical witch. A...

    This was a lovely enchanter/witch romance. Mara stringing Winston along while she loved Theo really didn't sit right with me. It's all good and dandy when he is a nice guy and took it well, but she really should have known better. I liked Adelaide and Theo, though Theo was a bit too typical a romantic hero: hot, strong, resourceful, cocky, self-sacrificial... Poor Theo is all I can say for the cliffhanger ending... He really does take his protect...

    Wow! I can't believe that ending. That is one of the worst cliffhangers that I've ever read. Granted I really, really enjoyed reading this. But that ending!This is mostly a fast paced book, there were a few slow moments. But this was a well rounded read. It is quite a unique take on witches/wizards.

    Funny but this book has actually been on my Goodreads tbr since 2012ish. I adore this author’s paranormal romance. Sooo happy this finally came to fruition! I’m looking forward to reading the next installment! And that ending...Mara and Theo! What is going to happen next? Five glittery stars for this long awaited release!

    Such a great story of a girl who thought she lived her life one way only to learn it was all a farce and she has now come to find out who she truly is meant to be. Throw in her protector and love interest and some great other characters and this book is hard to put down until you finish it.
