A beastly prince. An enchanting beauty. Only love can break the spell. Once upon a time…. The wicked King Thorn forced the enchantress Zuleika to cast a terrible curse. She fled his court to travel the world, helping those who need her magic most. Until a search for her merchant father’s lost ships leads her to an enchanted island, where Prince Vardan, the island’s ruler, is afflicted by the most powerful curse Zuleika has ever encountered. She’s not sure she can reverse the spell, but she’s determined to try. After all, a prince who fights pirates can’t be all bad…no matter how beastly his appearance. Together, can the enchanting beauty and the beastly prince break the spell? Contains mature themes.
I adore retellings and Enchant was a very cute and quick retelling
If anyone knows anything about me, you’ll know that Beauty and The Beast is my favorite movie and fairytale bar none. So the fact that Demelza Carlton was able to translate a “child’s tale” to adults without being icky or weird was perfect.
I’m still getting used to audiobooks but this one was very easy to get into. I really liked the narrator. At first she seemed a little breathy and a little annoying but once I was able to concentrate really well on the book it went away. As for the story it was a little cringey towards the end but it wasn’t too bad.
I really liked it a lot.
Let me know what you think!
