Once Again May Prove Too Much For Jenni To TakeWhatagain may Dangerously Placed prove too much for Jenni to takeWhat rich deep magical world Robin D Owens has created with this series debut Straddling the human and Lightfolk worlds Enchanted No More offers up a thorough three dimensional reality that is both intriguing and captivating as Jenni and Aric work together for the good of the world at large I was very impressed with the complexity and originality of the concept for the fantasy elements of the Lightfolk cultures and thelot of the story in generalJenni was a fascinating heroine Her journey was about forgiveness and finding an internal balance that allowed her to heal from her loss and take her rightful Just Destiny place in the Lighfolk community than it was about battling an external foe and thatroved to be surprisingly compelling Especially when the events that traumatized her so deeply were combined with fresher conflicts over the status of halflings in the Lightfolk world Yet the threat Paradise Run posed by malevolent Darkfolk and their shadleech monsters was also taut and thrilling androvided much juicy action for reading enjoymentOwens was masterful at the slow steady evolution of Jenni throughout the book and I thought her development was completely realistic and sympathetic I was articularly fond of the deft strokes of relationship mending between her and Aric as the story rogressed Aric was much like his nature a steady force of immutable strength and while that could have tipped over into stagnancy for the character his own issues of dissatisfaction for how his eople s needs have been ignored and the dissidence between him and his father along with the sometimes too restricting fealty to the Eight kept his character interesting real and freshAs a couple Jenni and Aric complemented each other and while there was a definite romance subplot it evolved in a satisfying and natural way that seemed very organic to the characters growth and development and remained respectful of their ast Secondary and ancillary characters richly Dignity Rising 1: Gefesselte Seelen populated all threads of thelot and some of the most enchanting aspects of the story surrounded some of the least The Book of Mordred powerful of the beings in it Owens impressed me with the many and variedersonalities so finely woven into the tapestry of the taleThe narrative took me a while to get used to and the book did start out slow for me The sty.

Aren T Completely To Myt completely to my as there is very little world building or explanation of the fantasy aspects What I learned about the Lightfolk and their connection and interactions with humanity I had to divine through the actions and dialogue of the characters I don t like to be overwhelmed with exposition who does but I do Oracle R12 Applications DBA Field Guide prefer to feel a little less like I ve been dropped into a foreign land unaware of the rules or the inhabitants unable to speak the language and forced to muck about until I suss things out on my own There was a little too much self sussing for my tastes especially for the first half of the bookI also thought that the events of the tragedy fifteen years ago were a little over emphasized and repeated a bit too often through most of the book It got to be repetitive for me and because the loss of Jenni s family was such a decisive breakingoint in her life every time it was mentioned it forced the focus back to the Wie war das noch? Schulwissen, neu aufpoliert pain and subseuent negative emotions surrounding it I found that a little depressing but also noticed it seemed to segregate Jenni a bit from other characters and from me as a reader Even the narrative surrounding those times of reflection seemed different than the rest of the book full of shorter choppier sentences that lacked description and flow almost like each mention of theast was a wound not yet healed that seeped into even the text that described itJenni s journey though from a woman closed off from her heritage one limping through a full human world with little than her work and her cat to a strong adept master of her magical craft who herself and the Hidden Boundaries people she cares about was a trueleasure to experience As was people she cares about a true leasure to experience As was romance with Aric and the major lot arc of the uest to balance the magic bubblesI do hope the future of the series delves into the blend of Lightfolk and human cultures because there were many fascinating techno magic meldings mentioned or referred to and I found my interest than Gods Callgirl piued about them and about theresence of the Eight in Denver Seeing a balanced blend of fantasy and reality would appeal to me as Enchanted No More did seem to focus mostly on the fantasy elements and rightly so The Mystic Circle series has caught my eye and I Forever I'm Yours plan to follow up on the groundwork laid here as soon as the opportunityresents itself Disclosure A copy of this book was rovided to me free of charge for the urpose of an honest review All ratings comments thoughts and opinions are my ownOne Good Book Deserves Another Mostly a meh bookIt reads easily but it lacks gripping ower It is difficult to warm to the MCs one is too easily moved to change the other is too sketchyI appreciate growing up but here it felt like wishing upon magic There s no feeling of growth it just happens But then it s a common roblem with this books things happen and there are no reasons for it and this is a world building Renoir problemThere s no depth to characters either No real drama and false easily removed angst Pleasant but not a book I ll kee.
