Release Tour + Review + #Giveaway: Enchanter by Kristy Centeno @KrissyGirl122 @MoBPromos

ENCHANTER
The Giver of Life Trilogy, book 1
by Kristy Centeno

Genre: YA/NA Paranormal Fantasy


They have a past. But will they have a future?

Leah Parker is resilient and hardworking. She’d always prided herself in maintaining a level head, even under pressure. Everything changes when she begins to see strange apparitions and hear ghostly voices on the morning of her birthday.

In a blink of the eyes, Leah’s life takes a drastic turn that spirals her into the unknown. Something is out to get her, but she’s unsure if she’s losing her mind, or the faces and demands of the dead are real. Unable to find the answers she needs, she has no choice but to rely on ex-best friend, Brandon Morris, for help.

But as she will soon discover, Brandon has his own secrets. Some of which defy logic and only add to the mystery surrounding Leah. And mix feelings between the two complicate matters by getting in the way of what they really want, and what they must do.

Can Brandon lighten the load on her by figuring out what or who wants her dead? Or will their past history get in the way of the storm brewing just beyond Leah’s grasp?

“Are you scared of me? Is that it?” As if to make a point, he covered the distance between us in three short steps, and backed me off into the landing to the stairwell behind me, stopping only when our bodies were a few inches from coming into physical contact. The invigorating scent of his cologne invaded my nostrils, causing my mind to go into total and complete turmoil.

I shut down, unsure how to react. I hadn’t anticipated being cornered in a vulnerable spot where we were shielded from view. Normally, I was a sucker for guys who smelled as good as he did, but this was Brandon Morris. I couldn’t decide whether to lean closer and inhale slowly, or scream and push him away.

“Are you?”

I wanted to deny his accusation, but he could see the truth in my eyes. It was pointless to pretend as if he hadn’t just sent my heart into a race. By then he could see how badly I shook. I could not disguise it fast enough for him not to notice.

“Should I be?” I asked softly, fear forcing my voice to quake.

Fighting the nausea threatening to consume me, I made a mad dash for alleyway’s entrance. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw something move. I shrieked and sprinted faster, almost colliding into the thin man who appeared out of nowhere in front of me. I managed to stop in time to crash into him, but as soon as I caught sight of his profile I regretted not plowing right through him.

He looked like something straight out of a sci-fi movie. Tall, long, and lanky, with shoulder-length white hair, unnaturally pale skin, and eyes that gave the impression of missing irises, he was no less horrifying than the black figure I’d seen at the stairwell or the ghostly woman in my bedroom. He was clad from top to bottom in dark clothing, which gave him all the more menacing feel. As he stood, staring at me in a way that communicated I was about to become food, I could have sworn my stomach dropped to my feet. This was no ordinary attacker. He didn’t have rape or mugging in mind, but something much more sinister.

Movement several yards behind him caught my attention and I glanced around his left shoulder to the woods, noting the quick blur of a figure darting from behind one tree to another. Something was off about the way this person rushed by. It sparked a sense of familiarity that horrified me.

“Brandon, I don’t think we’re alone anymore,” I murmured as another flash of white scurried ever closer. It was too dark for me to determine who it was, but I was certain of one thing: we were being watched.

“What…?” The meaning of my words didn’t immediately dawn on him.

“Someone’s out there.”

Brandon spun around abruptly. He scanned the area briefly as he backed into me while sucking in air. His suddenly rigid posture warned me whoever was out there was not friendly.

Without a single word of explanation, Brandon turned to me and took my hand in his, pulling me down the path we’d used to get to the gazebo. He towed me along in a haste, leaving me no room to protest, or figure out what the hell was going on. A weird, high-pitched hissing sound emanated from somewhere behind us. It startled me and I was tempted to glance over my shoulder, but Brandon’s next words stopped me.

“Don’t look, Leah!” His tone was as serious as I’d ever heard it, which freaked me out even more. What was he so scared of?

My Review:

Leah Parker, a college student who works and is paying her own way through college has been having these nightmares since her birthday. She has also been seeing these ghosts like figures who talk to her and want to know why she left them and want her to help them. Leah has no idea what is going on. Leah thinks she is beginning to lose her mind and believes all of her friends may think the same thing.

And to top of all that she has this project to do and has been assigned a partner and guess who her partner is; a young man who stays to himself and has been a loner for as long as Leah can remember. Leah has known this young man, Brandon Morris since kindergarten; he was once her best friend. Leah’s problem with Brandon goes with peer pressure.

No one really likes Brandon they think he is weird. Alas no one has ever taken the time to get to know him and Leah listens to everyone else wanting to protect her own reputation. But once given this second chance and a few years down the road with a little bit of growing under her belt Leah realizes that Brandon just may not be as bad as she thinks especially when the sparks start flying between the two.

After Leah is attacked one night and she finds out that something is out there and it wants her Leah figures out that Brandon is the only one that can help her. She also learns that Brandon has a few secrets of his own. Brandon just may be the only one well with the help of his vampire friend Dimitri that can give Leah the answers she needs and keep her safe.


Enchanter was unlike any book I have read before. I like reading books about vampires and couldn’t wait to devour Enchanter when I saw that it was listed in the vampire genre on Goodreads. I thought that I would be reading about your typical vampire but boy was I wrong. Dimitri is way different than other vampires and so are his cousins. I can’t wait to read more in The Giver of Life Trilogy.
