"Magic permeates every word of Allie Burke's novel, Violet Midnight. She creates a world where the surreal collides with the one tangible truth sought by all of us; true love. Destiny takes a hold of her tale as sure as it took a hold of her pen and I couldn't help but be consumed by a story marvelous in its intricacies and genius in its broad appeal. As I closed the book on the last chapter, I realized I was merely finished with the opening salvo of a promising new voice making her mark in the literary world." -Nicholas Denmon, Bestselling Author of For Nothing
"The writing in this debut novel is exquisite and dreamy. Very beautiful, very poetic. It almost seems more like a piece of art than a piece of writing. The love between Jane and Elias is so tender and sweet that it literally just makes you ache with it." -Courtney Cole, New York Times Bestselling Author of If You Stay
"Burke is adept at building a world through carefully thought-out words, yet there is nothing deliberate about the writing - I think for Burke, it just must come naturally." -Karina Halle, USA Today Bestselling Author of Sins & Needles
About the Author
An American novelist from Burbank, California, Allie Burke writes books she can't find in the bookstore. Having been recognized as writing a "kickass book that defies the genre it's in", Allie writes with a prose that has been labeled poetic and ethereal.
Her life is a beautiful disaster, flowered with the harrowing existence of inherited eccentricity, a murderous family history, a faithful literature addiction, and the intricate darkness of true love. These are the enchanting experiences that inspire Allie's fairytales.
From some coffee shop in Los Angeles, she is working on her next novel. Book 2 and 3 of the Enchanters series will be published by Booktrope Editions late Spring/Summer 2014. To learn more, visit Allie at wordsbyallieburke.com.

When we meet Jane, we find that she is not what most would consider "normal". She has abilities that sort of define her. And I think that is what I liked most about her. Her abilities, along with her red hair (I mean, who doesn't like red hair), and her personality made me absolutely adore her as a character. And then when she finds Elias, I could have just died with happiness for her. But I feel so sad when you find out the loss she just so recently experienced, and also the reason behind her sleeping during the day and staying up at night. And to top it all off, a strange man who wants her dead...someone who has abilities as well...I was literally pouting.
And Elias, who may be normal, but still has his own demons. He has to deal with parents who don't seem to love him at all after the death of his twin brother. After finding Jane, he wants to protect her. He would never be able to live if something happened to her. So what do we do...put her life in danger, his too. Why not, it will make their bond even stronger. And it might make his family appreciate him a bit more.
This book was a paranormal fantasy I will never forget. It was indescribably beautiful and heart-wrenching and HAD PURPLE GLITTER!! I can honestly say that I have never read a book where one of the stars was purple glitter. And I absolutely loved it! I'm kind of jumping in my seat right now because I so want to get the others in this series.
Jane is an Enchanter. But she's special, she is The Enchanter. One of a kind, with the ability to control all of the elements.
Elias Lindin is an artist who is mourning the death of his twin brother.
When the two finally meet......It is just magic.
Usually I don't read romances. It's just me. But this one was so adorable. I particularly loved that she had been dreaming about him for so long, and that when he finally saw her, he was just awed. Although their relationship does progress rather quickly, I didn't feel that it detracted from the story. And the love scenes...well.... =D *blushes*.... super sexy......
I do wish that some elements of the story had been elaborated more on, i.e. the mob involvement, and why the other Enchanters were after her... but there are two more books, so hopefully those questions will be revealed for me.
What I loved best about this book were the amazing descriptions Allie gives. Everything is so detailed, I felt like I was right there in Jasmyn Lake. I also loved the fact the Jane's aura was violet, but it changed color when it rained. Super awesome! Great story with steamy love scenes and a few twists that I didn't see coming.
The book is a quick read and is quite short - only about 155 pages and I read it in a few days. Fun book but nothing super special.
