My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Who among us has not, at some point in our lives, whether as a youth or an adult, held a crush on some special person and secretly hoped that person would enchant us and fulfill our dreams? With Enchanted, you can accomplish that dream through its characters.
This book had a special draw for me, because it involves both magic and the country of Wales, which is the setting for most of the story, and because my paternal ancestor, William, immigrated to the American Colonies from Wales about 250 years ago. There are still many there today with my surname. Additionally, in my teens I was quite fond of the art of legerdemain, that is, the performing of illusions—magic, if you will. The leading male character, Shay Evers, is portrayed as a master illusionist, and women everywhere are enchanted by him.
Enchanted is rich with magic and romance. I have not been a reader of romance, so I had some concerns that this book might turn me fifty shades of red; however, my fears were unfounded. Oh, perhaps just a little red–but not too much. Enchanted allows you to escape to a storybook world of love, peril, self-discovery, and most of all, fantasy. I enjoyed it very much, and I’m sure you will, too.
