A New Review of Enchanted Circles






on May 13, 2016
Great book with wonderful illustrations. I enjoyed the book so much that I bought a copy for both my children as well as my wife who is a reading specialist. She has enjoyed it as well. Highly recommend sharing this book with others.

Great Review of Enchanted Circles
 
 
Top Customer Reviews 5.0 out of 5 stars
Fantastic book!! By Lovebooks
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
 
I was not sure what to expect but I liked the blurb so I took a chance and bought the book, and I am VERY glad I did. This book is fantastic! The story is about a lonely 12 year old boy Zak, who finds out some of the quirky people living near his aunts home in the mountains are sorcerers, and they need him to help them fight 3 crazy and evil sorcerers. Vivid detail and lots of magical action make this a page turner. The twists and turns of the plot kept surprising me!
The author paints a warm and rich world where the extraordinary and the ordinary seem equally natural and real.
The characters are believable and likeable (except for the villainous sorcerers!) they are all well fleshed out. I really loved Zak, aunt Millie, Cole, miss Hannah and all the others!
Serious topics like losing a loved one, a distant parent, loneliness but also questions like what is right, and how do we know we are making the right decision, are expertly touched upon and explored without making the story sad or slowing the action, it gives the story great depth.
The 6 gorgeous illustrations with glowing jewel like colors give the book an extra richness. They are extraordinary! And people who are into coloring will no doubt find lots of inspiration in them. Every illustration is separately mentioned in the table of contents, you can simply tap one to study, admire and enjoy it!
The story was a stand alone, everything was very satisfyingly wrapped up, but I was very glad a new story was hinted at, and I have already bought the next installment!
This is a fabulous book for young and old. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes fantasy or just a good story

Excerpt from Unbroken Circles


Excerpt  from Unbroken Circle
Paul Medina

 

"Zoe, are you in here?" he said as he entered the kitchen. Obviously not, he thought and returned to the dining room. "Zoe, where are you?" He slowly went through the house, even into her bedroom but found nothing. "Must have popped out for a moment," he muttered to himself and sat on one of the couches in the living room and waited. He stared out at the Grand Canal through the windows and watched wisps of clouds float over the marvelous marble buildings across the waters. He watched several men on the docks directly across from Zoe's house, readying a boat to launch. He thought how cool it would be to live in Venice and travel that way all the time, but then his mind went back to wondering where Zoe had gone this early in the morning.

He sat there by himself as patiently as a young teenager could and thought about their canal adventure that awaited him. Then he noticed a white marble statue in the courtyard that he knew he had not seen before. It was a statue of a figure standing next to several tall junipers on the second tier down from the house. As he stood up to get a better look, a slow tingling sensation spontaneously rippled over his arms and vibrated into his body. He quickly turned around in a circle to see if anyone else was in the room then made a mad dash outside and sprinted towards the statue. He was about ten feet away from the marble figure when he came to an abrupt halt. Even though he viewed it from behind, he knew what the statue was. She stood in a familiar stance he had gotten used to seeing her in, with both hands clutched behind her, her head raised high and noble. He walked around to view it from the front and tears immediately sprang to his eyes.  It was Zoe, white and frozen in time. "Zoe," he whispered.

When he realized the full impact of such a spell, he spun in a circle again, viewing everything in sight in one continuous glance. He knew it was the work of the Dreier. "I must go," he said to himself and instantly vanished from the place.
