I started to glance through Enthrall while waiting for a World Series game to start, and, before I knew it, I had read six chapters. M. R. Reed uses an interesting writing convention that really propels the story. Odd-numbered chapters (1, 3, 5, etc.) are written in the voice of Miles, the teenage male character. Even-numbered chapters are written in the voice of August, the teenage female character. I found myself eagerly looking forward to the ensuing chapter so I could find out what the other person was really thinking.
Each of the protagonists is from a dysfunctional home environment. Miles' father is a drunk who verbally and physically abuses Miles' mom. August's father leaves his family for his gay boyfriend. Needless to say the stress levels are high for all of the members of both families. It is against this background that Miles and August find each other. The writing is crisp and the dialogue is entertaining and believable. When speaking in their own voice, Miles and August each exhibit and alternate among their insecurities, angst and strong self-belief. When viewed by the other person each seems to have his or her life together.
The fun is in the two finding each other, exploring their sexuality, dealing with their problems and living their lives as best they can under very trying circumstances. Miles finds that he has an ability to make others do as he wants.Read more ›
This book follows the relationship between Miles and August. Miles comes from an abusive home where he sees his alcoholic father belittle his mother. August is new to town and is living with her mother ever since her father left them. Miles has never had a girlfriend before so when August approaches him he is confused. August has had a bad experience with boyfriends until she meets Miles but she finds herself wondering if it can last.
I loved the style of this book the odd numbered chapters are written from Miles point of view and the even chapters are from August’s point of view. This allowed the book to flow well and made you want to keep reading so you could see what the other person was thinking. The characters are well written and it is easy to visualise the characters and settings. The plot has a fantasy element that is unique and adds another dimension to the story. There is depth to the main characters that enables you to connect to them.
I would recommend this book to the YA market as I feel they will be able to easily relate to the teenage leads. A well written and developed book that drew me in, making me want to know what happened.
These characters are so well developed; you know exactly who they are and what they stand for. It's almost impossible not to love them. And their love story is a realistic representation of high school romance, with all the passion, puppy love, raging hormones and drama that comes with it. Except their drama isn't caused by jealousy and insecurity but rather one of them having the ability to control people's minds. So yeah, there's that.
And what's more, it's NOT CHEESY! You won't find sappy love lines or awkward romantic scenes that make you roll your eyes because they would NEVER happen in real life. Instead you get sarcasm, quick wit, occasional dirty jokes and awesome music references!
And it's not all about the romance, there's so much more to the story! Factor in the harsh family lives Miles and August have to deal with and you've got yourself a compelling story that's relatable, realistic and incredibly gripping.
You get more than you bargain for with this book, and I highly recommend it it anyone (who is of the age to handle explicit language and sexual content).

Enthrall is a great work that is much needed in the YA category since there seems to be a lot of Vampire Vs Werewolf romantic cheesiness that is not worthy of your time. Read morePublished 17 months ago by ohmiggi
