"K.K. Allen...has stirred a potion containing mystery, danger, almost unbearable suspense and the paranormal touching the supernatural. This is something very special." ~ Colm Herron, Literary Fiction Author

"The love story is so crazy sweet and incredibly well-spun..." ~ L.A. Starkey, Author of The Soul Keepers Series

"...a wonderful Supernatural Fantasy! It interweaves Greek Mythology, the recent past, and modern day Florida in a thoroughly entertaining exposition of ancient magic!...K. K. Allen, uses a brilliant technique in describing every situation concisely and colorfully. Her character development is phenomenal!...K. K.'s Endeavor is a brilliant beginning to an occult series of the Summer Solstice Novel Franchise!" ~ Tim O'Donnell, Reviewer

From the Author

The Summer Solstice: Enchanted derived from simplicity and was spun into gold through the eyes of Katrina Summer, our female protagonist. I wanted to write a story that was as realistic as possible while incorporating supernatural elements in a unique way. Above all, I wanted to entertain my readers with a bit of suspense, a progressive romance, and an exciting new mythology.

More About the Author

K.K. Allen is the Contemporary Fantasy author of stories inspired by nature, magic and love. She loves manatees, learned to swim for the mere purpose of pretending she was a mermaid, and adores the beach so much she promises to one day live on one (in a tent if she has to) in Hawaii and serve snow cones on the side of the road. K.K.'s first two books, The Summer Solstice Enchanted and The Equinox are now available! Her third book, The Descendants is coming soon.

What's Next?
Ms. Allen has been busy working on writing the third Summer Solstice novel, the Descendants, and she is eager to share more of Kat's story. "Kat is really flourishing as a young woman and we get to watch her grow into her own skin throughout her journey. A few more characters are introduced in the next book which I'm very excited about." So stay tuned--there is much more enchantment to come!

I can't tell you how impressed I am with this debut novel! It's so well-written, so full of rich description, that it places you right there alongside the main character, Kat, in the strange new world of magic she finds herself in.
"The Summer Solstice" has a modern-day fairytale quality to it. On one level, Kat is a typical teen. She's just trying to find her place in the world after her mother dies unexpectedly, and she's forced to live with her mysterious grandmother, Rose, whom she's never met. On the other hand, there are strange dreams, and mysterious powers that the locals whisper about behind closed doors.
There's something here for everyone: mystery, action, fantasy, and even romance. So many Young Adult books seem to concentrate solely on the romantic aspects that the over-all story falls flat. That isn't the case, here. Happily, Ms. Allen made the bold choice to not make the entire book about the budding relationship between Kat and the boy next door, Alec. The connection is there; you certainly feel it along with Kat, but this book is more about a girl discovering herself and her family for the first time. The ending was perfectly timed to leave me wanting more. I congratulate Ms. Allen on a job well done.
I'm really looking forward to reading the next book to this series, "The Equinox."

I teach young adults and read my fair share of YA literature, so when Ms. Allen’s debut novel popped up on my Amazon Prime account as a suggested purchase I thought, why not? I’ll give it a try. Good call. This well-paced novel hooked me from the start. Ms. Allen’s nimble writing is filled with lively descriptions, and I found the main character, Kat, sympathetic, intelligent, and interesting. In many ways Kat is your typical teen, wanting to fit in, nervous about attending a new school, and attracted to the boy next door, but in so many other mysterious ways she is not.

Due to the death of her mother, Kat’s world has been turned upside down. Add some horrible nightmares and you wonder how much this kid can take. Yet in spite of everything, Kat views life with a wonderful innocence as she pushes on. I saw some of the plot line opening up before the main character did, but I attribute this to honest writing as Ms. Allen allows the story to unfold through Kat’s sixteen year old eyes, raising such questions as: Who exactly is this aloof grandmother she is forced to live with? What role does her grandmother’s “secretary” Charlotte play? Why is Kat able to hear conversations from across the room? Run five miles without breaking a sweat? Shoot a perfect game of pool the first time she plays?

This is really a coming of age story with an urban fantasy backdrop. Like most teenagers, Kat wants a job so she can earn her own money, gain a little independence, and not depend all the time on her wealthy grandmother. Of course, she is not your average teenager and in turn has a lot to learn about her magical heritage, as evident by events that occur in the climax. Ms.

"This book has it all...and it takes place in Apollo Beach, Florida. Really good from beginning to end and loved the characters, especially Kat. Need to find out what happens to her in the next book. I could visualize all the characters and scenes like it was an awesome movie I was watching. Please hurry with book 2."

I devoured this novel in just two days. I couldn't stop reading. OMG. I love Kat. My heart broke for her at the beginning of the book reading the story of her mom. And the love story was just getting good. I can't wait to see how her story unfolds. My only complaint is this book is too short. Please write more soon!!!

I didn't read the book - way too old and the wrong gender. However, my grandniece did and it cost me two hours of Kindle time. When she returned the Kindle, I asked her if she liked the book. "I loved it," she replied. I asked her why. She told me that I wouldn't understand.

Oh my, WOW. Yes! To say The Summer Solstice: Enchanted wasn't what I was expecting would be an understatement. K.K. Allen surprised me in the best of ways. She surprised the heck out of me. There are so many elements that just work in this book. And whenever they're put together... it makes for a memorable and enjoyable adventure!

K.K. Allen really tended to her cast of characters. They're a mix and match bunch that are so well written. Kat is a character that stays with you. She's one of the many reasons why I loved this book. She's faced with a lot during the upheaval of life as she knows it. I was so impressed with K.K. Allen's writing because of how her characters are written. Characters are always a big thing for me and the author really knocked it out of the park!

I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this to young adult fans. I'm so in awe that this is K.K. Allen's debut. It shows so much promise. You do not want to miss this incredible series!

**I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review with no compensation.
