Description

The first book in the epic Evermen Saga.

Ella and her brother, Miro, are orphans, their parents killed long ago in the ongoing struggle against the mad Emperor.

From the day Ella witnesses an enchanter using his talents to save Miro from drowning, she knows what she wants to be. But the elite Academy of Enchanters expects tuition fees and knowledge. Determined, Ella sells flowers and studies every book she can. Meanwhile, Miro dreams of becoming one of the world's finest swordsmen, wielding his nation's powerful enchanted weapons in defense of his homeland.

A dark force rises in the east, conquering all in its path, and Miro leaves for the front. When the void Miro left is filled by Killian, a charming stranger from another land, Ella finds herself in love. But Killian has a secret, and Ella's actions will determine the fate of her brother, her homeland, and the world.

Good but ....

this a really good book with great imagery and action and a little romance too. The only thing i didn't like about it is the story had a harry potter/young adult book feel to it but its not for kids because there are some pretty descriptive sex scenes in the book. Other than that its ok. Enjoy

Sufficiently advanced technology ....

TLDR: story very good even for hard Sci-Fi lovers, reader spectacular.

I'm usually a hard Sci-fi/historical fiction type person. I chose this book based about 90% on the fact that Simon Vance is the reader, and his treatment of the Aubrey-Maturin series was perfect -- he's a great reader.

I'm usually not into fantasy, though like many, my introduction to Sci-Fi was via fantasy (LOTR). As it turned out, the story was great and the "magic" used here, seems much less like magic and much more like some strange technology left behind by alien visitors. There were some things I think that fell together a little too conveniently, hence four rather than five stars for the story, but I'm already downloading the second book in the series as I type this. It was a thoroughly enjoyable listen.

An interesting idea...

...killed by sub-par female characters. The main character, for which the title is presumably referring to, is defined by the men that constantly fawn over her . A bumbling idiot. A traitor. A prince. Somehow. For some reason.

The magic system is the interesting idea. Its well done and fascinating. It's sad the world building isn't near the same quality, which is mostly revealed in info dumps, or the plot, or the characters.

Brand new take on Magic

What did you like best about Enchantress? What did you like least?

Simon Vance narrator. Awesome as usual. Simon Vance can make the phone book interesting. The book had an interesting spin on magic, good characters and an interesting and fast paced storyline. Great young adult series that is enjoyable for all ages, especially for those of us uncomfortable with some of the new "magic-porn" novels that are far too graphic.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

New and interesting take on magic and magicians. Very interesting and quite frankly, should spawn future series. I would like to see the author write a prequel series.

Was Enchantress worth the listening time?

I finished the series in a week. Fast paced action, good plot, plenty of twists and turns, overall an enjoyable series that is worth every penny.

Any additional comments?

If you have a free credit, its worth it. Change your view on life, it won't. Better than going to the movies any day of the week.

There are so many great characters in this book. Male and female leading characters. I couldn't put it down, I had to find out what happened next!!!

A little derivitive, but an enjoyable book

What made the experience of listening to Enchantress the most enjoyable?

The narrator made the characters come to life. The best narrators make you forget you are listening to them. He did that. The story was standard kids with unknown parentage and budding ablities grow up and save the world, even so, it was well written and creative.

Solid beginning to the series

A good groundwork for a new series. Enough novelty in the magic system to be intriguing. Characters are a little shallow, but likeable. Hopefully they will gain more depth in the other books. I will continue reading the series to find out!

Well narrated, discernable characters.

Just missing some spark or link to me

Nothing is really wrong with this book- the plot is predicable but not too baddly; the characters are reasonable and the magic system has a some level of logic (for whatever that worth). I even wanted to know how the author would unfold the story yet nothing really made me enter the world. IT was just a story. I think another might enjoy it yet it had no link to me.

blah

The book sounded interesting and the narrator Simon Vance, is excellent.
I decided to give it a try.
This book is sluggish and it takes forever to get to the point but toward the end it is okay.
I finally looked at the author and figured it out. I listened to another book series from the same author. Now, I understood why I found the book frustrating. I felt the same the same frustration with that series.

The book could be condensed but the author want to drag it on..

The characters substance, they are naïve and lost, but when they become "vital" to the story all of a sudden they are strong but still lack substance. How did they become so strong, you don't know because the characters past was never explained.
It is wordy but leaves you empty.

The frustrating part is the naivety of the main characters. It drives me crazy because when something happens the character say "why did he/she let this happen" "how did he/she not know it" even though it happened BEFORE. It makes you want to pull your hair out! You think to yourself wow the characters don't learn anything because they keep making the same mistakes!

Story gory

I liked the story about the mystical and enchanting background and the relationship building between different types of people but felt that there was too much time spent on describing gory fight scenes. Of course an action oriented reader who likes visualizing bodies blown up and torn to pieces would enjoy the book. It ended with unanswered questions....

Superb

Gripping. A great combination of comfortably familiar fantasy coupled with some unique ideas and very well paced storytelling. Performance by Simon Vance was fantastic.
