Disenchanted by Brianna Sugalski Series: Disenchanted (#1)
Published: March 10, 2020
Genre: Dark Fantasy/Historical Fantasy
Age Group: Young Adult/New Adult
A Breton princess at the peak of the French Renaissance, Lilac lives prisoner in her parents’ castle after a wicked secret is revealed on the eve of her tenth birthday soirée. Years later, her coronation ceremony looms, and between the riotous townsfolk and scheming nobleman bent on snatching the throne, Lilac prepares for the worst… Until a mysterious letter arrives from The Witch of Lupine Grotto, detailing a curious offer to cure her darkness forever.
Lilac begrudgingly trades her coronet for a cloak and ventures into the forest Brocéliande in pursuit of the impious enchantress at the edge of town. With only the protection of an inherited dagger— and unsolicited help of the sardonic stranger who inserts himself on her quest—she must traverse Brocèliande and return in time to claim her rightful position as sovereign monarch.
This is the story of a cursed princess, A crestfallen killer,
The town that wants them to burn,
And the witch that can save them both.

My Review – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Disenchanted is a magical blend of historical fiction and fantasy that takes the reader on quite a magical adventure. With a riotous discovery of a dark secret on the eve of her tenth birthday, Princess Lilac is forced into a life of isolation until the day of her coronation. Lilac refuses to stay sequestered in her castle tower, and embarks on a perilous and eventful journey to a witch who has sent her a message to meet her in the town of Paimpont, where she has promised to help Princess Lilac rid herself of her dark talent. During this journey we encounter all sorts of magical beings, and really get a feel for the type of ruler Lilac will become. Her spunk and determination kept me entranced the entire story. We also meet Grain, a vampire from the local coven and companion to Princess Lilac on her journey. The author’s blend of fantasy and historical fact from the 100 Years War made for a fun story that was unlike one I’ve ever read before! You’ll be on the edge of your seat for this adventure, and I truly hope you enjoy it as much as I did. This will be a series I not so patiently wait for.
Thanks for passing by to check out my stop on the tour for Disenchanted by Brianna Sulgaski. Stay tuned for my upcoming tours and other fun posts.
Positive Vibes & Happy Reading!!
