GR group review: My Enchanted Life by Laura Eno

My Enchanted Life by Lara Eno
Pages: 259
 Publisher: Headline
Published: November 5th 2011
Source: From Goodreads group-Paranormal Romance &  Urban Fantasy Fanatics for a review.


An American teen finds herself thrust into a world she never knew existed in England's magical community of Wode Gate. While dealing with gnomes, a cranky dragon, murder and mayhem, Emma tries to cope with her unwanted duties as Sentinel and fights to get back home again.
She finds that things aren't always what they seem, people aren't who they pretend to be, and someone wants her dead. The king of the underworld wants her too, but he may be the least of her problems as Emma struggles to control her powers—while losing her heart to a demon.


Wow. There alot of things going on. I'm trying to update my blog, found many intresting books to read. I can't wait!

OK, first of all i would like to give a big thanks to Paranormal Romance & Urban Fantasy Fanatics group that i have joined on Goodreads because they are the one who gave me a chance to read this book.

So, the story is about a girl, Emma Winslow, and she gets a letter saying she has got a house from her uncle who is dead. But it seems Emma isn't who she thinks she is and the village isn't what you see it as. Now, the next thing is interesting. Emma is a Sentinel. They are very special creatures; their job is to make sure the world remain separate from each other and to help prevent demons from crossing into the mundane world, of course! And then the other thing that gets smacked right straight on her face is that Wode Gate isn't a town, it's a gate-a magical gate.

The plot and the setting in this book is awesome. The plot of this book is what i liked. Laura made this book vague by the villain. You will never guess who the villain really is until you read it so get reading people!

My first thought on this book was that it was a MG (middle grade) book because of the front page and the title. However, when i read this found out it was a YA (young adult) book.The start of this book jumped right onto the main point and then slowly starts to unravel the story. Then when she went to England all the characters that she met was all suspicious to me. I mean how can a house maid look like a model. Also, the setting is creepy but from the first description for  Randolph i was drooling.Then the problem came up. *Dramatic music*. Emma has to save herself, her people and most importantly her lover, Matthew from the king of the underworld. Finally, at the end i loved the 6 months later for the conclusion.

And the setting for this book is awesome. Particularly the library. I would love to have my own library in my own house like that one!


Emma's character is brave, mysterious and always straight to the point kind of girl. She's brave because she tries out things that people who be scared of. She's mysterious because you don't know everything from the start. However, when you go on reading the book you find out some shocking facts about her.

Nuh uh uh. I am not reading this! All the characters are awesome.

  • Cussard (the dragon). I would love to meet him! 
  • Mathew is a demon? No way! As Emma says he looks like an angel!
  • Lizzy, the house keeper is lovely. She is so kind and thoughtful! And i also feel sorry for her because of the curse she has.
  • I'm liking Randolph more and more as i read on. But in the end i hate him. He is a peculiar character. In my opinion i thought Emma was going to end up liking Randolph but she still stuck with Matthew. I would have liked it; it would have added a bit of spice to the romance.

However, there was also a little, little confusing moment for is who is the shape shifter that changed into Matthew? Or maybe it's just my stupid brain which is not working properly.

In conclusion, My Enchanted Life is a quick read-the whole story is short-205 pages (can you believe that?)-but its packed with action, romance and all the things you need to know. I would love to read more of Laura's works if i can get my hands on them. So get reading people!
