Claire Arden has a lot on her plate. In addition to surviving life as a high school sophomore, while avoiding the pitfalls that come with growing up on the wrong side of the tracks, she takes care of her aging grandmother, does her best to keep her flighty best friend out of trouble, and even holds down a part-time gig at The Burger Shack. Oh! And she recently discovered that she’s a princess, but not just any princess. Claire is the half- blood princess of a race of creatures she’d always assumed didn’t exist outside of the bedtime stories her gran used to tell her. Forced out of our world by humans of old, the fae, gifted with dominion over the four elements, created Faega, a world behind our own where they govern beings long believed to be mythic. Under the protection of her human mother’s closest friend, Claire was spirited away from Faega as an infant because of an uprising of those who opposed her birth simply because she was only half fae. Sixteen years later, with members of the dark fae searching for her, she’s reacquainted with the magical realm from her bedtime stories, and all the treachery, danger, and adventure that comes along with it.
Enchanted is a magically sweet, book that takes you into a fantastical world of fascinating creatures, danger and excitement. Jessica N. Lane writes beautifully, immersing the reader is a detailed fantasy world. The story of Claire’s discovery of the world she only thought was a bedtime fairy tale is great. It was a pleasure to read Claire’s journey as she comes into her own and accepts her role in Faega and her burgeoning romance was so sweet. Jessica N. Lane has a bright future in the literary world.
Hi; I’m Jessica. In a nutshell I’m just a hopeless romantic with a wandering mind and a big imagination who’s grateful to God for her gift of storytelling. I’ve been blessed with a mind and imagination inclined toward all things artistic, so I think a creative career was always meant for me. I’ve been writing since I was a kid, but I didn’t start seriously contemplating becoming an author until I was in college. The idea for this sprawling fantasy series that is now known as The Mythic Chronicles came to me when I was sixteen, and I got so inspired by this little half-formed idea that I wrote my first draft of the story that, 8 years later, became Book 1: Enchanted in about one month.. That first manuscript will never see the light of day because it was pretty terrible, but no worries, My skills have improved a lot since then. If you’re up for a sprawling, fantasy series packed with plenty of magic, danger, romance, and adventure, the journey begins with Enchanted: The Mythic Chronicles Book 1. If you have read any of the books in the series, and enjoyed them, don’t forget to write a review. Getting feedback from you guys is so rewarding.
