Violet Midnight (The Enchanters Series) (Volume 1)
"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.

This story has a bit in common with Twilight, and fans of Meyer's works will love this too. Those who didn't love Twilight can rest assured that the main character in Violet Midnight, Jane, is much deeper, more proactive, and generally more interesting than Bella!
If it did not have a couple of confusing chapters about two thirds of the way through I would have given it five stars. As it is, the author seems to have fallen just short of a great twist which I had to re-read to understand. The second reading made me go "oh! If this is what I think it is, brilliant!" I was disappointed that the book, which was so excellent to that point, became more difficult to read for these few chapters. The author used less detail in this last part of the novel too.
There were a few moments between the two main characters that startled me out of the story with their intensity. Not exactly what a reader wants to have happen when reading such awesome characters.
Nevertheless, the characters are memorable, and the author changes from one gender to the other believably. The world is beautiful, the plot supports itself, and the play with time is quite clever. The book has a satisfying ending which leads well into the next book. Which I look forward to reading!
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 aura color themes of the different types of Enchanters were great. I liked how each type of Enchanter had their own element, as well as aura. I also really liked how Jasmyn Lake seemed almost like a person complete with emotions.
Even if you don't like fantasy, you would probably like The Enchanters series. I highly recommend it.
