Summary
The people of Damea are no strangers to magic. They have wielded it for years - woven it into their societies and everyday lives. From powering marvelous cities, to building dazzling infrastructures to maintaining even the tiniest of farms, magic is the backbone of Damea. It is a part of them, it breathes with them. But the magic is dying, and taking Damea with it. With the land rapidly heading towards a catastrophe, Andrea, a shy and idealistic apprentice enchanter is determined to restore Damea’s lifeline. To make matters more complicated, a stranger from another world is brought into the mess after a powerful spell goes wrong. Hunted by her former mentor and with a civil war standing in her way, can Andrea escape her pursuers and convince the skeptical stranger to assist her in restoring magic to Damea? Or will she fail and leave Damea to its disastrous fate?
Notes
"Enchanters" is the first entry in an original YA fantasy series. It explores the world of Damea, where magic is running out, and features a fast-paced, action and dialogue-driven story, strong female protagonists, coming of age themes as well as both hetero and homosexual relationships (pg-13) while at the same time not being overly graphic or gritty.

A complex world, an intense plot
Nov 27, 2017
Full disclosure: before writing my review, I had a look out there to see what others say about it and boy, there are so many mixed feelings. I stand my ground with my rating, as “Enchanters” is a complex novel, touching a lot of themes or aspects. We have a world who’s magic is dying and a main character who just wants it back. Andrea has taken upon herself to save Damea and on her trip, she find allies and even romance. The author has done a great job creating the world and as well introducing Read More

Rich, mystical and otherworldly
Jun 15, 2017
This book was truly one of a kind. I quickly fell in love with not only the rich and luscious world that was crated but with the characters. The flow was steady and had a nice dark rhythm to it. You could tell right form the start that this read was going to be something special. I liked how we got come background before it jumped into the main plot. When you have a wold as complicated as this you need something to fall back on so that the reader isn't confused as to what is going on and why. Read More

Too much for one book
Jun 8, 2017
Enchanters is an epic fantasy spanning a magical world where magic is in short supply. The premise is interesting, but unfortunately the execution is lacking. There are too many characters in this book. I didn't know enough about most to care about them and the ones we did know, I didn't like because both. Kept. Whining. Some of the side characters were interesting but only got a scene or two every few chapters - enough so you'd know what was happening, not enough to really know or root for them. Read More

Great Series Starter.
May 23, 2017
Enchanters, the first in the series, was an interesting read, and one that has certainly left me interested to see where the series goes from here. Although it isn’t quite a full four stars for me, it was so close that I had to round up my rating. In all honesty, I believe the reason I’m not giving it a full mental four stars is because life threw quite a few curveballs my way that meant it took me longer to read this one than I would have liked. Nevertheless, as a whole I really enjoyed this Read More

Interesting worldbuilding and plot, but a bit overlong
May 11, 2017
I enjoy reading a proper high fantasy read every once in a while and the cover and blurb of Enchanters managed to catch my attention immediately. It somehow took me longer than expected to finally pick it up, mostly because I wasn't in the mood for the genre and I didn't want that to be a bad influence on my experience with this story. I'm glad I finally decided to give it a go though and I have to say I really like the idea behind the worldbuilding and plot in Enchanters. The worldbuilding of the Read More

Review by Marie of Ctrl, Alt, Books!
Apr 12, 2017 (Edited Apr 12, 2017)
I was given an e-copy in exchange for my honest review from Reading Alley. I was interested when i came across this book, I had not heard of it before but right away the cover drew me in and so did the synopsis. Once I got my hands on it I was thrilled! The beginning seemed to go rather quickly, though understandable to probably build up to the main plot of the story, however I do wish there had been more background as to what happened to Andrea after she meets Meredith and leaves, rather than Read More

I don't know who the protagonist is.
Apr 7, 2017
Enchanters is an epic YA fantasy novel. That... is about the only thing I can tell you for certain about it, since after reading all 534 pages, I'm still not sure exactly who the protagonist was. Nor do I really have a clue about the world of Damea and the rules of its magic, since the 'magic loss' which was basically the entire quest line of the novel was in the end resolved by such a blatant deus ex machina that I found myself turning back a few pages going "Wait, what the hell just happened?

Fabulous fantasy adventure
Mar 29, 2017
I enjoyed this story immensely. The author did a fantastic worldbuilding in the world of Damea and its magic (or loss thereof) and set our heroes off on a fantastic adventure to bring the magic back. The characters are likeable and relatable, especially Cassie, who I'm guessing came from Earth. You can't help but root for them all the way, hoping they would be successful in their quest. This is a long book, but I think perfect for teens who yearn for adventure in a distant world. I just have a Read More

Epic entertainment
Mar 10, 2017
Stories of this genre can be formulaic. Friends find each other, in rather difficult circumstances and set off to save the world. There are variations of course, but reading the plot is like watching a snow ball roll down a hill. You know how things are going to end. A few things kept this story better than that. The characters were like able. They were well developed in ways that suited their part in the plot, and the plot didn't have many 'jump the shark' moments were you couldn't suspend Read More
