~Emma Hamm, USA Today Bestselling Author of Of Goblins and Gold and Heart of the Fae
"A sure hit for fans of fairytale-inspired fantasy. Strong heroines, swoon-worthy heroes, and banter for days. Klapheke weaves magic into every word."
~Melissa Wright, Author of the Frey series
"In Enchanting the Elven Mage, the sparks fly from page one as Aury, the tough and saucy water mage, finds out her parents bargained her away to marriage with a bloodthirsty elven prince. Prince Filip turns out to be as deadly as claimed, yet with a good heart and good looks that draw Aury despite herself. The stakes are high, the action fast-paced, and the romance steamy-sweet. Five stars all the way!"
~Tara Grayce, Author of the Elven Alliance series
"This book . . . Oh my, this book was exactly what I needed! Humorous, adventurous, breathtaking world-building, and romantic tension that perfectly finds the balance between sweet and steamy. Alisha Klapheke's writing is gorgeous, and the chemistry she created between her romantic leads had me laughing and sighing by turns. This, my friends, is the romantic fantasy escape we all deserve right now!"
~Sylvia Mercedes, Internationally Bestselling Author of the Venatrix Chronicles and the Scarred Mage Trilogy
"Enchanting the Elven Mage grabbed me from the very first sentence on the very first page and refused to let go. From its gorgeously imagined world to the sizzling enemies-to-lovers romance, this is a stay-up-all-night-and-ignore-your-adulting type of story. Did I mention it also made me laugh out loud? I can't recommend this unique and engaging Sleeping Beauty retelling enough!"
~Robin Mahle, Co-Author of the Internationally Bestselling Of Thorns and Beauty
"Enchanting the Elven Mage was perfect in every way! And it is just the escape we all need right now. With an adorable wine-loving heroine, a slow-burn enemies to lovers romance, laugh out loud banter and even epic dragons, this is a world you won't want to leave!"
~Elle Madison, Co-Author of the Internationally Bestselling Of Thorns and Beauty
From the Author
While new readers will totally enjoy and fully understand this book, my established audience will hopefully have a blast seeing the Dragons Rising world again, one thousand years after Magic of Lore. They'll get glimpses of Vahly and Arc's descendants and visit familiar haunts like the Sacred Oak and the Silver River. A message in the front of the book details how the folk of this new series view Vahly, Nix, Arc, and the rest.
Whether a reader is new or a long-time supporter of mine, they will love this new novel full of dragons, kissing, smoldering looks, exciting fights, and relationships that make them wish they could take the cast out for a cider at the local tavern.

The parents of the both the prince and princess needed a bit more screen time as I think both were horrible parents and did not love their children at all.
A little more character development would’ve helped a lot.
Mixed feelings, but interesting enough.
The story is told from Aurora, who is a water mage, point of view, and Filip, an elven prince who is determined to win her heart. Aurora (Aury) is strong, stubborn, quick-witted, caring, and brave. She is determined to have her freedom and weave her own fate. While Filip is a warrior who is kind, caring, romantic, and most of all a dutiful prince. These two characters killed me, they were so good together, the banter, the flirting, and confiding in each other was great. Yet they infuriated me so much, mostly Aury, who was so stubborn she couldn't get out of her own way to realize that something she has been missing her whole life was right in front of her. However I did love that she set goals for herself, to help her claim the life she wants and while they may seem impossible she still tried, she still worked her but off to make things happen.
Filip was a dream book boyfriend he was funny, sweet, caring, flirting, an expert fighter, he understood that his life was not his own and was willing to do anything for his people but most of all his willingness to love, it made me swoon. I love how he thought of Aury, tried to be there for her, and actually tried to work things out.
The side characters need a big shout-out in this book. Aury's parents are not people I like, they aren't people that Aury likes. The power battle between Aury and her father King Athellore was something of legend. Aurora was not afraid and would not be cowed by her father and I loved that she didn't bend to his will. Along with Filip's and Aurora's individual group that support and care for each royal added a deeper layer to the story.
This is the first time that I have ever come across a Sleeping Beauty retelling and it was awesome, Alisha has to be a genius because she did such an amazing job. While the story was totally original it still had a fairytale type quality to it, it also most definitely felt like Sleeping Beauty. There were so many parallels blended in with the new I couldn't help but be entranced by the story and dying to figure out what was going to happen next.
Between the power plays, the battle of wills, crazy politics, magic, supernaturals, fairytale essence, and romance Enchanting the Elven Mage held me captive. Alisha has made a fan out of me, while I am waiting for the next book in this world, I plan on tackling some of Alisha other books.
This is influenced heavily by Sleeping Beauty, with a fun enemies to lovers twist. At times it felt slow and other points seemed to speed on and I did find myself confused by some plot points. But overall it was a nice escapist read.
Also, having read a lot of fantasy I spent a decent amount of time wondering where the betrayal would come from. And what happened in the book, in regards to that, actually surprised me.
Oh, and there are some delightful side characters. I would definitely read Drago’s story. His snark is great.
If you like handsome elven princes, cool water magic, Sleeping Beauty retellings, Enemies to lovers, dragons, and just magic in general you might enjoy this!
