Enchanted by Jessica N. Lane

The Mythic Chronicles Book 1 - Virtual Book Tour

Romantic Fantasy
Date Published: June 3, 2016

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.

Hi; I'm Jessica. In a nutshell 
I'm just a hopeless romantic 
with a wandering mind and 
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. 
You can follow me on my various social media platforms (found on the "links"page) 
to stay in the know. I love hearing from you guys, so feel free to 
email me at darlingpen2 (at) gmail (dot) com. 
Thank you guys for all your love and support. I love each and every one of you. 
Welcome to the family!

Wow what a fascinating start to a series!
Claire has just found out that her bedtime stories were actually real and not only that but she's also a princess in those magical lands. At 16 the most Claire thought she had to deal with was a snippy manager at her part time job and getting through her school work, but when a mysterious woman comes to her work one night Claire's life as she knew it changes in an instant.
Doesn't every girl wish to become a princess? But Claire's fairytale is quite from ordinary and when she's not trying to learn about the new world she is a part of, she's having to deal with snide remarks about being half-human while also trying to learn how to wield the powers that she now has.
Claire is smart and mature for a 16 year old and while she does still make some mistakes she is young and she does learn from them rather quickly. She is also resourceful and knows how to watch what is happening around her and see what's really going on and not allow herself to be manipulated just because she doesn't fully understand everything.
This story takes you into an great new world where magic exists and there are all sorts different creatures. Everything was well described so you didn't have to worry about becoming confused and not understanding something. And that made it all the easier to get sucked into the story and the characters within it!
The storyline itself is very interesting and keeps you on your toes and I'm very excited to see where things go with it!
