Magic has a price--and for Amber Sarga it's days and years off her life. Each curse she breaks ages her--and the bigger the curse the bigger the cost, and not only to her. That's why she hides away and has vowed not to get involved again... That's why she hates looking in a mirror...
And then an ill-fated stranger arrives. Rafe Davail doesn't believe in curses--not even kn

"I care for you, too," she responded.

He squeezed her fingers. "We'll get through this together." Then he closed his eyes and kissed her and she let her mouth cling to his and didn't call him on his lie." (p. 263, egalley)

Yup, I won't be able to finish this book. I really like the way curses and magic work in Enchanted Again, I just can't connect to the characters at all, and the writing is not good enough for me to wanna finish this. I mean, any time I stop reading to check my Twitter every five minutes, it's a good sign I'm not into the book.. Too bad, since the idea of this story is really good.

It is well known by those who follow me on my personal twitter that I have a deep love for Robin D. Owens's books. If I had to rank my top three favorite authors, it'd probably be Nalini Singh, Robin D. Owens and then Shelly Laurenston. So believe me when I say that I am incapable of giving this book anything below four stars. I am biased. You have been forewarned.

A longer reaction to be pub'd at my blog on 11/20/11, but I don't recommend reading this if you haven't already read Enchanted No Mo

Amber's in a bit of a bind. When it comes to breaking curses she just can't seem to help herself. Unfortunately Amber has no one to help guide her, teach her about this gift and she's learned the hard way that every time she does break a curse it has consequences.

When a handsome young man comes knocking on her door bound with a death curse, Amber will use all her skills to help him find the counter to his curse but even that may not be enough. As his importance to her becomes more apparent he m

This is my first book that I have read of Robin's but won't be the last. I enjoyed learning about her world. Seeing Amber all she risks to help others and lessons she learns.
I would love to meet the residents of Mistic circle, besides Amber and the brownies. I fit in that world love chocolate too. Amber sure has to buy a lot of it because she uses it to bribe or pay for favors.

The story behind this book really intrigued me. I loved the gift of curse breaking and the fact that saving someone else took its toll on the person who broke the curse. Along with the magical gifts that Amber has, there are also Brownies that live at her house and assist her, as well as giving her advice about the curses she breaks. The romance between Amber and Rafe is sweet, but not too graphic, so those who like just a little romance will be pleased.

Unfortunately, I think the story

*I don't recommend reading this unless you've read Enchanted No More first.*

Amber Sarga is a curse breaker. The problem? Magic has a price. Each time Amber breaks a curse she ages. Sometimes it's merely weeks, other times it's years. Amber has a good life going for herself. The perfect home in Mystic Circle, her precious puppies to keep her company, garden to keep her busy, and her own genealogy business.

I devoured this book! I loved Robin Owens' Summoning Series, so when I got a chance to read this new series from her I jumped on it! This book did not disappoint me at all! There are a mated royal couple of each element left on earth with two guardians when all the rest of the magical being's left due to Earths diminishing magic. Magical being's mixed with humans and Amber is a result of that. She can travel back in time to learn about families, so she calls herself a geneologist and she does fa ...more

I got my copy of Enchanted Again from netgalley. Although I have not read the previous book Enchanted No More I hoped it would not affect me reading this book. From the moment I started Enchanted Again I found myself really enjoying it and you don't miss out on not having read the previous story, which wasgreat for me.

When two strangers stop by Amber's home, she is instantly taken aback by the curses attached to the two men. A skilled genealogist, she digs into the past to find where the curse originates and helps to break it without using her magic - which ages her.

Rafe and Gabe are both in trouble. Gabe has just lost his family to a long standing curse, and he's bound and bent to break it and regain his son and his wife. Rafe's curse is deadly - and it's slowly closing in around him. His deadline is his bir

I am in love with Robin Owens’ books and this one let me know once again why. Her characters and world building are wonderful, as is the writing.

In this book, the main character, Amber, is a curse breaker. But there’s a problem with her magic – in that it is self-destructive. She’s a curse breaker who can’t break her own curse. As with most books from Luna, there is a love interest – Rafe. He’s a bit unlikeable at first since he’s all about himself, but he eventually becomes the supporting hero

“The shield was awesome and the knife was simply incredible." This sentence is pretty typical of the writing quality of this book. I stopped reading at this point. I just do not care for writing is writtne on this level.
The world is not as complete as in her other series, but I enjoyed the story and want to find out what comes next.

This book seemed to develop a little slowly in the beginning, with much attention paid to introducing characters and world elements that I hope will continue to show up in future books in this series. Robin D. Owens always provides an amazing new world to delve into, but because this series is tied so much closer to contemporary vision of Earth (rather than a completely new world as in The Summing and Celta series), I had a more difficult time wading through the intricacies of world-development ...more
The Deal: Amber Sagra is trying to keep a low profile, even though she has the power to break curses, each curse she breaks comes with a high price: time off her life.

Because of the curses she has broken, her body is well into it's 30's even though, if she had aged normally, she would be 26. So she has sworn not to get involved anymore.

But then, two people show up at her door, looking for her help to break their curses. Out of the two, Rafe doesn't believe in curses, even though he knows that

Started out strongly, but the pace dragged for a story involving two time-sensitive curses. The romance sparked out of nowhere for me, and the major conflicts were resolved much more easily than I expected, considering how dangerous they were said to be.

I liked Enchanted Again and certainly didn't have trouble getting through it, but I just don't find this series as compelling as her others, particularly the Celta series (which I LOVE). Perhaps this is because I don't care for fantasy-in-the-real-world settings as much as completely new worlds, or maybe it's because the characters felt less developed and not as well fleshed out as I'm used to with her books. The writing is good and flows well, but I just haven't gotten as attached or emotionall ...more

In the mundane world Amber Sarga is a genealogist, but with part magical heritage she is also a curse breaker, able to sense and remove curses from those bound by them. The only drawback: each broken curse takes years off her life. When two men show up on her doorstep needing her services, she agrees to offer guidance but tries to stay otherwise aloof. Of course this doesn't work--she is drawn to Rafe and he to her and soon cannot resist getting involved. Owens' urban fantasy, set in Denver, mak ...more

Robin D. Owens

This story was great! Amber Sarga is a genealogist, but her magic gift from her maternal side is to break curses placed on people. She learned the hard way that the cost for breaking curses is that she ages physically, the worse the curse the more years it takes off of her life. She is about five foot six, with honey colored skin and dark eyes. She appears physically about thirty-three, but she is chronologically only twenty-six. She has learned her

This was a sweet fantasy story with a little romance. Amber is a curse breaker, but every time she breaks a curse, it ages her prematurely. Rafe is a man under a curse that will kill him by his fast approaching 33rd birthday. After Amber falls in love with Rafe, the problem is, if she does nothing, he will die and she will be heart broken, but if she breaks the curse, she will age so much she will either die right off, or at least cut decades off of her life. The ending of the story was perhaps ...more

I have been reading Robin D. Owens since the begining and I love her books. What I can say is that she keeps getting beter and better. The second characters are wonderful just like the main characters. I read it in one sitting and could not put it down. The book makes you believe in magic. The same magic you believed in as a child.Enchanted Again

The rating on this book is actually like a 2.7 for me, but I rounded up because I think part of that is that I haven't read the other books in this series. I really liked the magic parts of the book and thought that the romance was pretty flat.
As a paranormal romance goes, Enchanted Again was more interesting than most, although still very formulaic. But in comparison to the first book in the series, the scope is really limited. It takes place mostly in the magically balanced cul-de-sac in Denver, Mystic Circle, and focuses mainly on two people, a curse-breaker and a death-cursed man and their very personal troubles. There are appearances by minor Lightfolk, mainly brownies, who eat lots of chocolate. There's little sense of the outer ...more

Not as compelling as the first book in the series, Enchanted No More, this was a look at a background setting and the characters that inhabit it. That was all to the good, but unfortunately the romance that was set up played a much bigger role (in part because this was spent completely in Denver, so couldn't spin up the world building). The romance was a combination of predictable and yet awkward.

I got about two-thirds of the way through this book and stopped...because my dog decided it looked tasty. BUT what I read of this book was fantastic, and I really wanted to finish it. I definitely need to buy it again so I can finish it. I enjoyed the first part of this book so much that I'm rushing into reading the next one in the series, Enchanted Ever After. So far, so good!!

I love this author, and I recommend her to anyone who enjoys a good fantasy. Her Heartmate series also has a good mix o
This was the type of book that had be feeling all sorts of ways. At the begining of the book I thought Culmustere (the elf that cursed Amber"s line) was a dick and way out of line because they were just trying to save people. I plan on being a nurse. I am going to make a living in saving people and I don't understand how anyone could just let someone die. But then towards the of the book I realized that he had their best interest in mind.

I like this series but I had to give this book only 3 stars.

I didn't like how Rafe wanted to protect Amber but didn't seem to consider her feelings or her role a lot of the time.

I understand he had a death curse on him, but Amber was helping him & he seemed more concerned with his own "fun" activities.

I couldn't blame Amber for feeling jealous and annoyed at times since I'd have felt a bit "used" if I'd have been in her shoes.

He never even asked about her day, just came home & talked

Eh, not impressed. The premise is great - a woman who can break curses, but loses some of her own life every time, and a man who has a death-curse. Execution, not so much. Amber is at first a woman who is has come to an understanding of her magic and is trying to protect herself while also developing her other magical skills. Rafe does not believe in magic and only meets her because his friend (who is also cursed) goes to her for help. The friend leaves to follow his estranged wife (obviously bo ...more
