Elias moved to Hazel Grove, California to get away from the rain, his parents, and everything that was taken from him in Hayward, Washington. But he thinks he may be going crazy when he starts seeing purple glitter in the air, the scent of rosemary is everywhere, and he is hearing a beautiful voice.
Jane is content in her life of solitude in the quiet town of Jasmyn Lake, but when her special magic sends her on a journey to meet the man she has been dreaming about for months, she cannot resist.
Look into the world of The Enchanters, where water has a sense of humor, trees scare people, and love – is destiny.
Violet Midnight was an easy read that I enjoyed very much. The Enchanters, who are not quite human since they acquire power over the elements, were intriguing and I wanted to learn more about them. Unfortunately the book moved too quickly, and I felt like there were important pieces missing.
Elias and Jane are a beautiful couple. You could feel the attraction between them, and why they are destined to be with one another. The back stories for the main characters were well developed and brought dimension to the overall story.
The only reason why I rated this book a 3 out of 5 is because I felt like I was reading the story not living it. My imagination couldn’t lose itself within the events.
Allie Burke’s imagination is brilliant for coming up with an entire new species; I commend her for that!
