In the mafia…only the strong survive. Joyce loves Luca. Luca loves Joyce. Frank loves his family and will do anything to protect it, even if it means taking away his brothers reason for existing. Falling, only takes one step, one movement of the chess piece, and in Joyce’s fall she took more than just one heart with her. Go back to the beginning where the drama of the Elect all starts. Go back to the first part of the story. Where true love tried to conquer all. Where true love…failed. Welcome to The Family.

 

Review: Sometimes when I get into a series I always wonder how it all began. That is exactly what I got with Enchant. It answered all of the questions that I had about how the families came to be and what started the feud that keeps going.

Enchant may only be 40 pages but the backstory that is provided left me in awe. I found myself being transported back in time and right there with Joyce, Frank and Luca. To be able to immerse myself in the world that the author is presenting to me is something that I will never get enough of. It really makes you appreciate where we are today and what people have gone through in order to get to where we are now. To be able to tell a story like that is no small feat. It’s something that I would never dream of being able to do but will happily dive into any book that will take me away to another place. Thankfully for me the series keeps going and going and I am just as hooked on it now as I was when I started it last year and binge read the first three books in the series.

Enchant is a prequel to the Eagle Elite series and can be read as a standalone or as part of the series.
