" As Solstice descendants, or Enchanters, as we have become, we believe in the purest of all things. We do not tolerate evil. "

Enchanted takes you to the journey of Katrina, a normal girl who moves to live with her grandmother ( Rose )after the unexpected death of her mother ( Grace ). 

Weird things start happening to Katrina and she experiences dreams and visions on her 16th birthday. She learns something about herself that was a secret kept by her mother and meets a gorgeous boy Alec Stone.

Both Alec and Katrina are likeable and well developed characters. Katrina has the most growth as a character. I love her character so much and I was able to connect to her when the book begins.

My favourite secondary character would be Rose. I would love to know more about her and the secrets she keeps! 

I loved the whole idea of this book. It was such a nice concept and I think it has the potential to be really fascinating and powerful. There is a flow to it most of the time that kept me reading. It is such a good book! 

I just love everything about this book! I am clearly very anxious about the next book in the series ( The Equinox ). The action felt like it was just beginning and I am looking forward to going on more adventures with them in the future. I wish this book was not too short! 

I highly recommend this book.❤❤❤
