The Enchanter's Soul
Many fall as the last enchanter rises…
The first line of the ancient prophecy keeps playing over and over in my head, but I’m afraid to remember the rest. I don’t want to think about what’s coming for us—what’s coming for him. I’ve been keeping Brinnswick safe for years; I’ve been keeping my coven safe my whole life; and now I was responsible for keeping Sebastian safe, too. It sho...more
Told in dual POV, 1st person. It’s the second installment in "The Ellwood Chronicles" and has to be read in order. I liked book one but I enjoyed this a bit more. Both characters were likable, I couldn’t decide I liked which one more. I liked that they both care about each other, how possessive they were of each other, protective of each other or get jealous... I liked that how Ailin was patient with Seb. Yes, sometimes Seb’s behavior hurt him but he understood where Seb came from a ...more
I loved how patient Ailin was with Seb, how slowly they opened up about their ...more
The constant back and forth between Sebastian and Ailin was exasperating. Their insecurities about not being enough for each other became too repetitive and after a while it felt like maybe they shouldn't be together since they clearly had to try so hard to stay together. For a love like theirs that was written in stars and traveled centuries to come to fruition there sure was a lot of resistance, a little too ...more
Anyway, this book. I love the interactions between characters, the emotions (truly an emotional rollercoaster haha), the relationships (both romantic, platonic, and family), the humor, the mix between serious and fun, calm moments and exciting ones.
And not to be dramatic but i would die for Sera. (And Thayer) (view spoiler) ...more
I found Seb kind of annoying. I like him but his reactions pissed me off most of the time.. That's why I can't give 5 stars. But I still loved everything about this story.
All the characters, the plot. The world building! I'm looking forward for the next book!
And I'm definitely waiting for Emrys's one!!
Oh and Basil... He's a little shit and I hope he'll get his head out of his ass in the next book... I sense a story between him and Thayer... We'll see!
I have to start by saying Sebastian really annoys me. He is whiny, doesn’t want the newly discovered magic, won’t fully accept Ailin’s fe ...more
I was a bit disappointed in this book. I loved the first book in the series and really liked Sebastian. In this book I found myself disliking him a bit, especially through the first 70% of it. I think the problem stemmed from the fact that the majority of the book was written from Ailin’s perspective and very little was written from Sebastian’s. This allowed us to see how Sebastian’s actions were affecting Ailin and didn’t really allow us insight to what Sebastian was going ...more
I think it's time I officially give up on this series. I gave it a good faith effort, I did, and it's not bad which is why I kept trying, but it's just not quite working for me, even though I wish it did. The world building here in interesting, but not quite as seamless as I'd like. The characters are interesting, but the dynamics between everybody here are so WEIRD and confusing. Everybody is prickly and there is honestly so much going on between every single person tha ...more
"You can see it?" Ugh! Michele put SO much feeling into that one sentence that i started crying!!! This second installment had absolutely everything that i look for in a paranormal/fantasy read. Some angst, laughter, tears. Oh the feels! This was the absolutely best. Although, i truly disliked Sebastian in this one. I felt like he was so selfish and invalidated Ailins feelings. Its like he knew he was hurting Ailin but didnt care. Ailin was amazing. I ...more
I found this one a but more frustrating than the first book, largely because of certain character interactions. There was more angst in this one with everything going on and for a time this seemed to simply drag on. Initially the angst is between Ailin and Sebastian about some hidden truths of the magical world and what it means for their relationship. Then there is a whole thing whenever Emrys us around, which was a lot in the second half.
Ailin and Sebastian fa ...more
This book picks up just days after the first one and it spans over the course of a few months. I loved that.
Where book one was told from entirely Sebastian's POV this one is mainly from Ailin's POV with some Sebastian chapters thrown in. I do not like single POV. There are two sides to every story and I li ...more
I was super excited to read this book and to meet the guys again.
Ailin and Sebastian are on fragile ground. Their relationship is new ...more
The book in which I fall for Emerys and his new beau. I am as shocked by how that went down as I am by how I feel about them. But I am so looking forward to their book (fingers crossed).
In general, this one didn’t quite do it for me as much as the first, at least for the first 75%. It felt like it progressed really slowly, and was meant to build tension with the escalating events. But it fell a little shor ...more
My only complaint is that I wish I had the next book now!
I can see some developing side story lines and I’m super intrigued. The brothers and the friends are fascinating and do a great job of fleshing out the story to be more than just about the 2 mc ...more
This book is filled with one thing after another disturbing the supernatural world. Ailen, Seb, and family find themselves trying to sort out odd situations and find the reasons behind them. Something is messing with the "supe" world , and it needs to be sorted soon.
Then, of course, there's the fact that Sebas ...more
This is the next book in the Ellwood Chronicles and while it continues on with the story the best part is how much more we learn about the characters. I am a huge fan of dual POV and in this book we get to really experience Ailin. Wow he was a bit of a surprise to me. I don’t want to spoil anything but I will say he has become a new favorite of mine!
Another thing I like that has continued from the first book is that for Sebastian it does not al ...more
🔥🔥🔥 Heat Level: 3.5
The adventure continues and I loved it!!
This story is just as awesome as the first book and continues on with Ailin and Sebastian and them coming to terms with Seb's enchanter powers and their fated connection. It is a thrilling journey, full of new intrigue, mystery, and magic. We see all the favorite characters and get a better insight into their magical world and some weird things that have been happening since their battle with th ...more
I love that we have more chapter's from Ailin's POV in this book, allowing us to understand where he's coming from regarding his magic, family and Sebastian. There is a lot going on for both men constantly and you have to pay attention to keep up but it's oh so worth it.
The story itself is full of love, ...more
It's official, I obviously got a glutton for punishment. That's the only reason why I chose this book when I barely managed to finished the last one.
The reason why I decided on this lunacy, and the only place where this series shine really, is the enchanter sub plot.
Other than that, the book was a painful and exhausting experience with all the bickering between EVERYONE. This author takes love bickering way too literally. These only makes the characters seems juvenile.

About the Book: Supernaturals are fleeing into human territory, away from horrors and slaughter being committed on their lands that leave entire clans in shambles. One or two such instances would be understandable. But Sebastian and Ailin barely have time to catch their breaths between these events. That paired with Sebastian’s newly found Enchanter’s powers is worrying Ailin to no end. What if the wrong people find out? What if ...more
Ailin is worried about Sebastian and all the weird goings-on in the world with the paranormal popping out when th ...more
I received this book by the author and This is my honest opinion.
I've been waiting for this 2nd book and was not disappointed. These books are bliming good, and so imaginative with all manner of creatures. This book was mainly told from ailin point of view with Sebastian intermingled. I enjoyed reading it how ailin seen it as it gave us more insight into him. This book was full packed with intrigue, magic and secrets that some were revealed and others not. I ...more
Ailin was the one who shined this time. The book is written from his point of view this time. Perhaps is we knew what Seb was feeling, I would have been more sympathetic.
