Book Review: Enchanted Again by Robin D. Owens

The Deal: Amber Sagra is trying to keep a low profile, even though she has the power to break curses, each curse she breaks comes with a high price: time off her life. 

Because of the curses she has broken, her body is well into it's 30's even though, if she had aged normally, she would be 26. So she has sworn not to get involved anymore. 

But then, two people show up at her door, looking for her help to break their curses. Out of the two, Rafe doesn't believe in curses, even though he knows that all the first borns of his family die at age 33 - and he is currently 32.  

Amber reluctantly agrees to help them... and starts to fall in love

My Thoughts: I loved the idea behind Enchanted Again, it sounded so original and I actually quite loved the world building, Mystic Circle - the place were Amber lives - was a lot of fun to read about with the houses and the creatures and all that. 

And, over all, I liked Amber, she was a very interesting character, sadly, I couldn't really connect with her - or with the other characters like Rafe. I don't know why, I liked the story and I can't exactly pin-point why, but I just didn't click with the characters. 

Also, while I was reading I realized this is actually the second book in the series, and while I don't think I missed a great deal, I don't like reading books out of order, so that dampened my enjoyment a little as well.
