Publisher's 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.

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.

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.

This could have been a great book

The main character is supposed to be a 35 year old detective who is also ex-Military. Why does he sound like a teenage girl? The author should have done research or maybe read other novels that have male characters in them who are adults. Sebastian's character acts likes he's young and not very bright. Other than that, the plot is pretty good. Ailin is a great character who doesn't sound or act like a young high school student. If the author had gotten the characterization of Sebastian right, the book would have been solid. I honestly think it could do with a re-write. It's almost like a YA M/F novel. I hope the subsequent novels in the series are better.

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!

I just couldn't build sympathy with a whiner

Sebastian whined almost constantly the entire time, it was really hard to like him. And why after he learns about witchcraft does he act surprised by every magical thing that happens? I'd be like "oh yeah, magic" and just move on. And if I ever hear anyone in real life say "what the actual hell" I will probably give them the biggest eye roll and can muster.

Just awful

The writing is terrible, the story is terrible, the reuse of language is appalling. I liked that the main characters were gay, that was fine with me, but did one of them have to act like a lovelorn teenager? Barf. All of the Witch meets human metaphors without any of the fun.

Great ideas, limited follow through.

This was a difficult story to rate for me. On one hand, the premise for the story was great. It was imaginative, creative, and full of potential. On the other hand, I caught glimpses of this cool world but never a clear picture. I couldn't connect with Sebastian at all. In fact, I found him annoying and tstl at times. His history was vague and the few glimpses we got didn't seem to mesh with the man he was. I listened to the audio version of the book and found that the voice Kenneth Obi gave him was immature and the inflections made him come across as stupid, the emotion exaggerated. All in all, I was disappointed. I gave the book 3 stars because the premise was new and creative, but the actual story didn't live up to it.

Magical

The story kept me engaged in it and it had really fun moments. Besides the narrator really brought it to life. So it was truly fantastic. I really loved it.
