AUTHOR: Michele Notaro
SERIES: The Elwood Chronicles
RELEASE DATE: April 15, 2019
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 shouldn’t have been a problem, he was my vitmea viramore, after all, and I was used to having the weight of the world on my shoulders.
What Seb doesn’t know is that everyone in the magical community is after him—even if they don’t realize it yet. They’ve been looking for him for centuries; not only for him, but for his soul. But they never counted on him having me. I will protect him with my every breath and take down anyone that gets in our way. His soul belongs with me, not in the arms of evil.
The Enchanter’s Soul is the second book in The Ellwood Chronicles and is a continuation of Sebastian and Ailin’s story. It contains explicit material and is intended for mature adults 18 years of age and older.
Seb is my new favorite character! I love everything about him! His frustration with Ailin but his inability to stay away from him! He fascinated me from the very first book. And now that they are connected and he’s also able to read the witch’s mind, his frustration grows. It’s so much fun!
This second book switches POV’s between Ailin and Seb. Finally, we’re able to understand Ailin. He doesn’t see life with normal human standards. As the oldest Elwood and being Sage, he has the weight of the world on his shoulders, and he has no time to waste for human nonsense.
Seb is quite the opposite. Growing up as an orphan alone, his adjustments to his new life comes harder than he thinks. Yes, he always wanted to belong, to call someone his own, to have his own family but this new world he suddenly finds himself in is overwhelming, to say the least. His adjustment to being the last enchanter it not easy at all. He craves Ailin all the time, but he’s also very insecure, and he fears that Ailin only cares for him because they are each other’s “vitamin”. Seb learns about the prophecy, a prophecy he fears. Ailin is there for him all the way, supporting him.
Ailin doesn’t understand the need for Seb to be alone sometimes. After all, Seb is his vitmea viramore, and being apart from him hurts. Literally. He knows that creatures will come for Seb. He does everything in his power to protect his soulmate. As much as Seb lets him.
I loved the book. The only thing that was a bit annoying was the “mating dance” between these two. I was like “just do it already”, many times. But other than that, the book is an excellent read and I can’t wait for the next one of the series!
