After a fire kills Elizabeth's parents, Elizabeth decides to journey through a dark tunnel within a cave to meet The Alliance, a group consisting of six representatives from each species - human, werewolf, vampire, witch, shapeshifter, and banshee. In spite of the fact that Elizabeth knows little to nothing about supernatural creatures, she's willing to become the Human Representative. Her assistance is very much needed. After all, the Alliance was started centuries ago to stop the goblins, a group of bloodthirsty creatures deadset on ruling and destroying the world. Unfortunately, the goblins are still going strong.

However, before Elizabeth can really learn about the goblins, she must first learn about what being a member of the Alliance entails. Of the six representatives, the vampire Milosh and the werewolf Romulus stand out, especially Romulus. The moment she shakes Romulus' hands and looks into his eyes, it's clear that there's chemistry between them. So it's only fitting that, as part of her new life as the Human Representative, she moves in with Romulus.

Charming Incantations is basically two plots in one. The romance plot is focused on Romulus and Elizabeth's romance; the action plot is focused on battling the Goblins. Their romance is very often the focal point. There are 3-4 battles, but I think this novel would appeal more to those who are into romance than action. I don't mean to spoil the ending, but even the conclusion is more focused on tying up romance issues than battle issues.

The novel's premise is really cool. I love the idea of creatures banding together to take out one deadly force. I love reading about intense battles.

With this book the writer has definitely started something good. She does not hide the fact this is her first novel, but you can tell she has already found her feet when it comes to telling a story. There are parts that can be quite predictable but this does not hold the story back, and it'll leave you wanting much more. In a world where Twilight, True Blood and other PG-13 style monsters try to make us believe that monsters don't have to have an edge any more this book drags us back into a world where danger is back and werewolves and vampires have their attitudes back. Always respectful of who this story is based for (being a young adult book) it never goes too far for any parents worried about that. It'll be interesting to see where this goes.

Charming Incantations: Enticed is without a doubt the most refreshing story that I've read in years that incorporates the horror and fantasy worlds. Vampires that are vampires and Werewolves that are werewolves. No glitter in these pages.

While this is her first novel, the prose is excellent and flowing with a well thought out story line that grabs the attention of the reader from the get go. Perfect for reading at anytime. I, personally, cannot wait for the sequel to this original story!

This is one of those books that once you start into it, it just flows and suddenly youve lost 3 hours! No sparkly vampire wannabes or giant husky style werewolves in this book! I love the fact that witches, banshees, shapeshifters, and goblins are included in the main focus of the story! Oh yeah, and this story unlike twilight actually makes sense and could happen in the real world! You will enjoy it! So go ahead and click add to cart now! lol

Read Charming Incantations for an online book club that I just joined. Monique Snyman hit the ball out of the park! Great story with interesting characters based on legends. She had something for everyone-romance, paranormal characters, action, and a surprise ending. Her writing is crisp and clear with great dialogue and original plot lines. I really liked the book and look forward to her work to come.

Charming Incantations: Enticed by Monique Snyman is one super novel! This young lady combines humans, werewolves, vampires, shape-shifters, witches, and banshees against the Evil that is the Goblins. I love how the heroine accepts her role as the Human Representative on the Supernatural Council without even knowing this was a responsibility she would one day embrace. Monique creates such a warm feeling of romance, fantasy, and magic. Look at the fantastic cover, get the warm fuzzies from viewing it, and then wham!: prepare for the peace to end throughout this great tale when the good life must fight evil. Ah, but Monique does return to the softer side often enough to balance the horror with warmth.

Not only is the story line fantastic, the author's writing style flows with well crafted prose, bordering on poetic styling. My kind of writing.

Buy this great book! You won't be sorry!
