The moment ten-year-old Ivan stumbled upon the clearing in the Carpathian forest, his life was forever changed. Atop a pedestal encircled by fallen leaves, a beautiful princess lay still as death, but a malevolent presence nearby sent Ivan scrambling for safety.

Years later, Ivan is an American graduate student, engaged to be married. Yet he cannot forget that long-ago day in the forest nor convince himself it was merely a frightened boy’s fantasy. Compelled to return to his native land, Ivan finds the clearing just as he left it. This time he does not run. This time he awakens the beauty with a kiss—and steps into a world that vanished a thousand years ago.

A rich tapestry of clashing worlds, Enchantment is an original novel of a love and destiny that transcends centuries and the dark force that stalks them across the ages.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Marissa Morrison | 2/14/2014

    " Since he's still working against gay marriage rights, I'm about as willing to give Orson Scott Card money as I am to give it to Chick-fil-a. Thank goodness the public library had this book, because it's so good! The protagonist kisses a sleeping princess and finds himself engaged to her in a rough-and-tumble village nine centuries ago. "

    " This book was really wonderful. I am a big fan of the fantasy genre, but I'm not sure this book can even so easily be fit into one genre or another. There was definitely romance in it, but it was very modern and unlike any other romance I've read. It was realistic and all the things that disney Princess movies and modern romantic comedies are not. It was funny, entertaining, and very unique. "
