Review: Enchanted No More by Robin D. Owens

Enchanted No More (Luna Books)
Publication Date: January 2011
Publisher: Harlequin
Rating: 4 STARS

BOOK BLURB (from author's website)
Guilt-ridden by a mistake that cost her family their lives, half-Lightfolk, half-human Jenni Weavers turns her back on her magical heritage...until her remaining brother who hates her is trapped and she's the only one who can step into an alternate dimension to save him.

The Eight, leaders of the Lightfolk, have sent for Jennie Weaver aka Jindesfarne Mistweaver. They want her to intercept a bubble and hone its powers for their good. They were unable to intercept the first one it the Darkfolk were able to harnass that one. They used it to create shadleeches to gnaw on the Lightfolk's magic.

Fifteen years ago the original Eight had sent for the Mistweaver family to open a portal for them. At the last minute they move up the time table and Jennie was too late to save her family, Her brother Rothly is the only sibling to survive but his magic and himself are maimed.

The Eight send her ex-lover Aric Paramon to request her help (half Treefolk and half Elf). They are offering her a Princess title if she completes the task. She and Aric must travel to Yellowstone to intercept this bubble. She finds out that the Eight had previously asked her brother to go on this mission but they had lost contact with him. Jennie makes a deal with them that she will save her brother first and then go after the bubble. Since I don't want to give away the entire book I will just leave it at that...:)

I got so mad at Rothly because even after Jennie retrieves him from the inter-dimension he continues to treat her badly! I just wanted to strangle him!! This book had be bouncing between being mad at Rothly, sad about the loss of Jennie's entire family and her struggle to cope with it and cheering on Jennie and Aric's love. Great read!!
