Review: Mr. Darcy's Enchantment by Abigail Reynolds

Book Blurb: In a Regency England where magic and faeries are real…

Fitzwilliam Darcy is a powerful magician who controls fire, water, and wind. What he cannot control is his growing feelings for Miss Elizabeth Bennet.

Elizabeth’s sentiments towards Darcy are quite different. She detests his arrogance, and she fears he will expose her use of forbidden magic - forbidden to women, that is. He is the last man in the world she would choose to help her on a difficult and dangerous task.

But when a magical war looms between the land of Faerie and their world, a Lord of Faerie demands that Darcy and Elizabeth serve together as his emissaries to make peace with the other mortals. That mission throws them into the middle of a chaotic power struggle between magicians whose power dwarfs their own, and everything Elizabeth has ever believed about her family, her friends, and her enemies will be called into question.

Review: I don't even know how to start this review, my thoughts are all over. I guess I'll start with the fact that I loved the magic system in this story. It was unique to see that though people with an affinity to magic could learn spells there are also people who have wild magic, which is the ability to use magic without having to learn it. I loved the majority of the characters in this tale. We get to see some famous members of the fae and get to know new ones. I loved the interactions between Elizabeth and Titania, actually I just enjoyed when the fae showed up in the story at all.

I think it's bullcrap that women weren't permitted to learn magic unless they snuck around and learned it on their own or had someone secretly teach them. But at least some of the characters in the book were planning on making sure that in the future women could be formally taught. I also didn't see those plot twists coming past the middle of the book. My heart wanted Darcy and Elizabeth together so badly and when they finally were together they still had to wait to be married by mortal laws. This novel tugged at my heartstrings and I didn't want to let go.

I definitely recommend reading this book if you love romance and the fae. Hell read it if you just love a good romance story in general. I promise it won't disappoint.

Rating: 4½  stars out of 5
