Summary

Strange things are happening all around Brinnswick. Things that remind me of a piece of my past I’d rather forget. Girls are being killed, drained of blood, and left with strange markings on their bodies. When I finally connect the cases together, a specialist is called in - though, what he’s a specialist of is beyond me.

When the chief assigns him as my new partner for the case, I can’t help but groan on the inside. Why of all people would I be assigned to Ailin Ellwood? The man is a disaster waiting to happen and a jerk to boot. A sexy jerk, but a jerk nonetheless.

What will Sebastian think when he discovers Ailin’s specialty? Will he make a run for it or will he stick around and discover a world of magic hidden beneath the city’s surface?

The Enchanter’s Flame is the first book in the Ellwood Chronicles. It’s a paranormal romance that contains explicit material and is intended for mature adults 18 years of age and over.

Frustrating

The story has so much potential, but it's terribly written. It's like if someone who knows what they were doing came up with a great plot and then some 14 year old running a Supernatural fanfic tumblr got their hands on it and fucked it all up. Sebastian, who is supposed to be a grown man and a cop, is written like an insecure, whiney and rather stupid teenager and I just want to slap him over the back of his head and send him to his room for most of the book. The way the story is often told by his inner (whiney) monologue was also a terrible idea. It could have been so good. I'm sad.

Great story

Enjoyable story with likeable characters. The narration was good except in that of the two main characters the younger sounds older than he should.

🎧Kenneth's Audioslaves Reviewer🎧

The Enchanter's Flame(The Ellwood Chronicles, Book 1) by Michele Notaro.I loved this PNR. The story develops nicely. A good combination of world building and character development. It's a slow burn romance. I can't wait to listen to the next one.
The Narrator Kenneth Obi did a fantastic job bringing these characters and story to life.

Witches, demons, humans, oh my

The Enchanter’s Flame is book 1 in the Elwood Chronicles by Michele Notaro. I debated for months on when to start this one, out of fear that I wouldn’t like it because this was a new genre for me. I couldn’t have been more wrong. This book has everything and more. It has good characters with great dialogue and chemistry, stellar narration, suspense, magic, and even an adorable snake named George (yes, I can’t believe I just described a snake as adorable either).

I can’t say enough good things about the narration. Kenneth Obi knocked this one out the park with his distinctive voices and comic timing. I found myself so wrapped up in the snappy and definitely comical conversations between Seb and Ailin that I almost forgot that I wasn’t actually watching a movie. I can count on one hand the amount of audios I have listened too that I can say that about. Also, I may have listened to Ailin’s baby talk to George about a dozen times because it was hilarious and so, perfectly unexpected.

If you like magic, suspense, and a little romance, then you must listen to this 5⭐️ narrated masterpiece ASAP.

Great book - well narrated!

The story telling and world building is so good in this book. I got easily hooked on the series - I've read all 3 already,
Listening to it and made it all the better. This is down to Kenneth Obi's narration. He really brings the characters to life..
So so enjoyable.

Gripping from start to finish

This book was so much more exciting than I was expecting. A truly surprising and gripping storyline, full of shocks and twists. Kenneth Obi's narration brings a depth to the characterisation as well as the dramatic effect that makes this such a fun listen. I can't wait fur the next in the series.

More Magic

A story of magic and mayhem, supernaturals and humans. A human detective is thrust into an investigation with magic overtones. He struggles to come to terms with beings he thought of only as myth are real... including his new partner. It is lighthearted, amusing, tearful, and captivating; all of the feels. The epilogue sets up both a potential continuation and/or a future volume. The main story is complete. The narrator, Kenneth Obi, is gifted with a variety of voices and speech patterns. He brings the story to life.

Couldn’t make it past Chapter 4

The narrator‘s voice was irritating and made Sebastian’s character into something completely incongruous... although admittedly the writing didn’t help. With the whining and shallow character presentation, I barely made it to Chapter 4. Sigh.

This book has it all!

You ever listen to a book and full on belly laugh? No? Then you need to listen to this one. I laughed, cringed in fear, enjoyed the sexy times and now cant wait for the next book. Kenneth Obi did a fantastic job with all the different characters and sounds. Well done!

So repetitive

a solid 70% of this book is repeated. The line "I'm not going to hurt you" is used at least 20 times per chapter.
Also, the whole boy on boy factor is fine but gee it's so repetitive and too much!

YA Story with Inept MC

I should have read more reviews before listening to this one. The story isn’t bad though the MC is too clueless for too long and does seem to be a 12 yo girl (rather than an experienced cop and soldier) for most of the story. This is more of a YA book. It’s not sexy story and the romance is clunky at best. The magic and supernatural part of the story line is the best part.

Ok

I think this should be sold as YA. Not really my favorite. The story was ok, but the main character was whiny, annoying and acting like he was 12. There was almost no sex and the story was kind of predictable.

I liked the narration very much!

Enchanted a bit.

The story lived up to my expectations. Held my interest all the way to its conclusion. The cars of characters were engaging and helped propel the story. Look forward to book II.
