“Biz didn’t think life could get worse after the tragic events that surrounded her last flicker, but when she accidentally flickers on her eighteenth birthday after doing shots of vodka—she’s forced to face the consequences of her actions in a way she never imagined. When an anonymous email threatens to reveal her secret, Biz must decide if flickering is all it’s cracked up to be, or if she needs to stop. Forever.”
Disenchanted (The Coventree Chronicles) (Volume 1) Paperback – July 6, 2015
by Janet Ursel
“In this Christian fantasy, one young wizard with a hunger for wisdom and some dangerous secrets finds himself pitted against another ready to reach for power with the darkest forces possible. Wizards have never in the history of Coventree, renounced Wizardry. But Blayn Goodwin finds himself growing detached from the practice of Wizardry, even as he rises through the ranks to become the youngest member of the Supreme Council. He has lost interest in the usual gods in favor of a god without a name, not that he makes that fact public. Edgar Savile has his own traitorous secrets and kidnaps Blayn’s eldest son to prevent Blayn from probing into them. Meanwhile the Supreme Wizard, suspicious of Edgar, sends Blayn to retrieve an ancient book from the Other World, hoping it will arm them against Edgar’s treachery. What Blayn finds is not what anyone expects, and threatens to tear Coventree’s fraying system apart at the seams.”
Some of you may be wondering why I purchased both the Kindle and the paperback version of Melanie’s book. I’ve done this throughout her entire trilogy because I fell in love with it right from chapter one. When I fall in love with a book, I want it in paper. I tend to purchase books first on Kindle and, if I’m unsure about them, I try to get them during their $.99 or free promotions as often as possible. When I fell in love with her book, I got it in paper. Then, when the rest of the series started rolling out, I knew I would want to read it when I was on the go – in waiting rooms, waiting during carpool, and so on. So, I got both versions each time. For Janet’s book, I went ahead and purchased the paperback from the get-go because I have a lot of faith in her writing having read her work over the years.
Even though I purchased Melanie’s Kindle version in March, I had a long TBR list I was working through ahead of her title . . . so . . . I’m just now getting to this read. Janet’s book is the very next one on the list, so the reviews will be piggy-backing themselves here in the coming weeks. I love helping authors promote their work and I’ve been “cyber friends” with both of these fantastic women for years. So, talking up their work here seems like the most natural thing to do. By the way, Maine doesn’t allow for Amazon affiliate links, so I don’t receive any type of kick-back at all if you decide to purchase their books using the links within this post. I’m linking to them because I want to – not because I get anything in return. *smiles*
