The Enchanted - Hard Cover EditionK.B. Hoyle
“Enchantments are powerful—the most powerful magic we have,” Rubidius said. “They can change the nature and composition of animate and inanimate things alike, and they can foil the plans of the most determined foes.”
“What do enchantments have to do with me?” Darcy whispered.
Darcy Pennington’s course was plotted out for her long before she ever stepped foot in Alitheia, but Colin Mackaby seems determined to hamper and confuse the way as much as he can. Darcy begins to suspect that it is not Colin working against her, but a malevolent force working through him—a force seeking to hasten Darcy’s transformation into one of the very creatures she is supposed to fight. Darcy is finally willing to follow the prophesied path, even agreeing to her much-resisted marriage to Tellius, but soon after she returns to Alitheia, everything spirals out of her control. A painful rejection almost pushes her over the edge, and when she demands answers from Rubidius, he provides her only with more painful secrets she must keep from the others. In the meantime, Darcy and her friends finally set out to confront one of Tselloch’s gateways, fulfilling—so they think—the great prophecy of the Six. But when faced with practicing their magic against Tselloch’s evil power, nothing turns out as expected.
Enchantments protect them as sorcery attacks them, and Colin Mackaby dogs their every step along the way. In the minds of the Alitheians, if Darcy cannot repair the breach that has formed between herself and Tellius, nothing will turn out as it was foretold. Darcy wonders, in the end, if there is any hope at all for her, or for Alitheia.
Praise for The Enchanted:
“This book had me bawling like a baby… laughing like a hyena… experiencing loss as well as love… There was not a single thing I would have changed! This series is by far my favorite series of the year, and I am always so excited when a new book comes out! This series will give you the magic and the romance, and well just the plain awesomeness the K.B. Hoyle gives with each page!”
“This is my favorite in the Gateway Chronicles series, but I felt that way after I read each one of them. They keep getting better, more exciting, more deep into the characters' lives and personalities. A little bit more angsty teen romance in this one, which I totally love. Looking forward to the next, always looking forward to the next.”
“The Gateway Chronicles is fabulous! This 4th book in the series is the best yet. It is good vs. evil. It's what average people do in extraordinary circumstances. It's young love and break ups and reconciliation. It's drama, action, suspense, magic and mystery. It's a page turner. I can't put it down and waiting for the next book in the series is tough! I can so see this as the next big fantasy movie in the same league with Narnia, Avatar, and Lord of the Rings. Bring it on!!”
