The first this I will say is I really liked how I could feel I was being drawn into the story. The way the author told the story makes me you feel like you are right there with Grace and her family. Every emotion, thought and certain elements in the storyline around them that was being written so beautiful that you could get lost into the book. Paradox is one of those books where leaves you wondering why such sad things happen to good people. I can see readers relating to this book for those who have lost ones they love. Grace who is 11 years old come to face something so horrible at her age something no little girl her age should ever have to deal with -Loosing someone she loves more than the air she breathes. Without giving to much Grace and her Mom, Kate struggle on a daily basis just to make it through the day. When Grace feels she does not want to feel sorry for her loss anymore she starts the day with new hope and a new friend, Angela. Angela is not like other 11 year old girls... she talks and acting like she is well beyond her years. As Kate and Grace slowly mend there broken hearts with the help of there friends, Angela and Wade who is the cop who sadly had to break the news to the family about the death - Something else is in works someplace faraway, long ago?! Only time will tell what will be in store for there family. As I read this book I found myself loving the character Grace. She was written with such spunk. I was able to relate to aspect of the book. Loss and feeling of hopelessness. I feel that readers who have lost someone in the past can easily understand what Grace is feeling. Paradox is a great book for anyone YA-Adult and a very fun and easy read. I immensely enjoyed reading it. I do look forward to reading what happens next. Patti Roberts is a born story-teller who knows how to throw in those great twists through the book - Paradox "The Angels Are Here".
My Thoughts: ( I give this book 4 Stars )
I was given the book, Enchantment by the author Charlotte Abel a few months ago to review and I must say this book was better than I expected. It was beautiful written. The story-line was unique and interesting - holding me attention throughout the book. I loved the flair of magic and romance in the book. Both fit perfectly together. Enchantment is such a captivating book and I was not disappointed when it came to the content in the book and the character's as well. The romance was divine and I loved how Channie and Josh's relationship progressed so well in the book. It was fun to read about how Channie could cast spells and even a curse.
Enchantment is about a young girl who is a witch and so are her family. She soon finds out her family and Channie must move away from there home to start a new life elsewhere because her Father is in huge trouble with a family of Royal dark witches. Her parents decide she should no longer be called by her Witch name, but a new name will be chosen to keep her safe - Chastity! On the night she moved into her new home she later meets Josh and his friend at a nearby park. Channie decides to test her new magic in hopes that her Enchantment is still within her someplace. She cast a Come-Hither spell which makes Josh kiss her. From there on out her life will be changed - as well as Josh's.
I won't give any more away, but let me tell you if will be worth reading it to find out more. I found myself tearing up a bit during the book. You can just feel how much romance and love these two have found together. The ending was amazing and such a surprise of what is yet to come. I have really begun to love a lot of self-publishing authors. Just because the author is not published does not mean the book will bad. I have found a lot of wonderful book written by self-published authors - And Charlotte Abel is one of them. Her written style was stunning. Enchantment was such a joy for me to read and I would very much recommend the book to anyone who enjoys books about Witches as well as True Love!
