#BookReview: Enchant (Enchanted #1) by Micalea Smeltzer



Fiction Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy 
How I Acquired this book: Netgalley 
Overall rating: ★★
Goodreads | Amazon
About the Book:
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.









About the Author: Hi. I’m Micalea. Ma-call-e-uh. Weird name, I know. My mom must’ve known I was going to be odd even in the womb. I’ve written a lot of books. Like a lot. Don’t ask me how many, I don’t remember at this point. I have an unhealthy addiction to Diet Coke but I can’t seem to break the habit. I listen to way too much music and hedgehogs have taken over my life. Crazy is the word that best sums up my life, but it’s the good kind of crazy and I wouldn’t change it for anything.


Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: This cover is what got me to read this one and I was so disappointed that it didn't work out. 

Check out author's other books or related books? At this time I am not sure. 

Recommend this book? Not really 

Notes and Opinions: This one for me was just a little too close to another young adult book called City of Bones.  Maybe you have heard of it. Now a lot was different but a lot wasn't. That saying for one thing "All the stories are true" ya we already know that as well as one part that took place in a garden.  With a few others tossed in there this one came off to me as something trying to be something its not.  I did like some of the characters but the above, as well as the story here, just didn't kick me off in the right frame of mind.  I really wish that the author could go back and take out those parts and do something fresh that we haven't seen before. Too many stories try to do the same old same old and it really kills the wonderful vibe that they had. 

Go Into This One Knowing: Too much from other titles.
