    4.25 / 5 stars Note: For those who've yet to read part 1 or part 2 of Entranced, this book has both parts combined.

It's a lot slower on the action scenes, but more focused on all the mysteries that are starting to appear. As a huge mystery fan, I'm actually impressed at the pacing of all the mysteries that are unfolding. It's sparked my curiosity and I can't wait to see what happens next. There were a great cast of characters. I liked Jax. The banter and dialogue shared between Jax and Alana were pretty witty, funny, and natural. He doesn't have that much of a presence in the second half of the book, but the scenes that he had were delightful. Alana was pretty witty and sarcastic, which is how I like my protagonists/heroines to be. I'm curious to learn the mystery and secrets that's revolved around Alana's cousin, Jayse, just as I'm curious to learn more about Dash. Overall, I'm very intrigued with how this series will go from here. Entranced, while a bit short, managed to end in a manner that has me dying to know what happens next.

    This book has a really weird pacing and a lot of plot holes. I know that there are more books after this one, but as a first book in a series, it has absolutely no character and everything is fast and unconnected. Nothing is explained and we are only left with a lot of questions in the end. I don't think I like it very much. This book has a really weird pacing and a lot of plot holes.

The pacing was quick, so much to the point that neither the character development nor the world-building were done probably. I cared about no one. Things kept happening one after the other, all of which I think was meant to have shock value but mostly left me feeling confused at best and disinterested at worst. Almost everything about our main lead fell flat for me. Her so called friendship with her cousin, the budding romance, honestly, the only relationship I somewhat cared about was the one Alana had with Grandpa. And that ending...I didn’t feel like the sort of place to stop a book. Basically, I’m done with this and I’m not looking back.

    Entrenched I can't say that this is my favourite Sorenson novel - the issue for me is principally Alana's character which is immature at best and annoying at worst. I'll forge onto the next book and see how it goes.

    The whole time I was reading this I felt like it was leading up to something really big but then that really big thing never happened and Bam! Cliff hanger. It wasn't terrible but just okay to me. I did get to mark off the letter "E" for a A to Z title challenge I am doing and if you are doing a state challenge you will get Virginia with this one.

    Before reading Entranced I read the description which in turn is what made me want to read it. I didn’t read any reviews anywhere this time which is unusual. What drew me to it was the fact that it is some sort of academy and since I loved Jennifer Estep's Frost Academy and Richelle Meads VA (at the time) it seemed like a good idea to read it.

So then I started reading the book. Something that I hadn’t thought of or even considered a possibility was the fact that it was a short story because it was a "part of" kinda book. I don’t get the need to this. Why? It actually annoyed me to a point where I might not read the second part which is a high probability. The lead female character was bratty and one dimensional and I already have an inkling of who the murderer is. I can say that I don’t care about what happens next which is why I probably won’t continue reading this series. I’ve been a fan of the author since reading one of her series but this didn’t get a good reaction enough for me to continue. Noting that I haven’t read before. On a positive note: The cover was beautiful. Update: The old cover was beautiful.

    Entranced is a great beginning to a young adult, paranormal series.  All Alana has ever wanted was to get her mark. To become a keeper like most of her family. It's what she knows, she’s been fighting her whole life. But when her mark finally appears it seems she’s destined for another life.  There’s a lot of mystery and magic thrown into Entranced. I think it’s a great beginning and I’m interested to see where it goes. It didn’t take me long to finish, I was able to finish in a couple hours.

But I think it was the first time I didn’t really emotionally connect with any of the characters.  Overall, I give this Three Boundless Stars.  http://www.boundlessbookreviews.com https://www.facebook.com/BBReviews

    'Entranced' - written by Jessica Sorensen - is about Alana, the only Guardian in a family of Keepers, and her journey in the Guardian Academy. The pacing was kind of weird. It was like job-she gets the mark-flight-her room in the academy-first 'lessons'-walking around with Jax-her grandpa is dead-who did it?did he steal something? It was all really fast and choppy. She was at the academy for a day(?) before shit went down? So unrealistic.

It was all really fast and choppy. She was at the academy for a day(?) before shit went down? So unrealistic. Suddenly, the second she is gone her grandpa is murdered? Of course. The characters were flat and unoriginal. I'm being a little harsh here but I can't help it. I'm in this book hell where every story I read seems like it has the same freaking pattern. All feisty heroine, cocky (mentor) love interest with a dash of special syndrom and a lot of pseudo mystery. Also, what's with the baseless hate from the principal? Is she the principal? I already don't know anymore. But that sucked. I don't want to read about girls hating girls. Why does she hate Keepers? What have the Keepers done to her? On that note, what's with Jax's twin Dash? (Was that his name?). (view spoiler)[He was the one that killed the powerful vampire(?) Anastasya(?) in the beginning right? Because Alana thought it was Jax and apparently it wasn't him so that leaves Dash. (hide spoiler)] The main problem was that it wasn't written like a first book - it was written like a first part. And when it really started, I was already at the end of the book.

    Having read and enjoyed The Fallen Stars series I was excited to see that Jessica was writing a spin off novella series with Alex and Gemma's daughter Alana. I picked up this book and read it straight through yesterday. I was addicted from the very beginning; Alana is wonderful, smart, caring, and strong, a combination of both her parents. However, she's her own person. I really loved this book, My only complaint was it ended too soon. I know it's a novella series, and that's great, but still...

However, she's her own person. I really loved this book, My only complaint was it ended too soon. I know it's a novella series, and that's great, but still... Alana is the daughter of two of the best keepers from a large extended family of keepers. She's been waiting impatiently for her mark to appear, but once it appears her life is forever changed. She no longer belongs to the Keeper world, but is now a member of the dreaded Guardians putting a wedge between her and everyone she's ever loved. Life changes at a drastic level; new home across the country at the Guardian Academy, a frustrating, handsome werewolf mentor Jax and his twin . Both twins are great new characters and I look forward to getting to spending more time with them. If you are a fan of this paranormal, this is a great read. The story will captivate you from the beginning. Mystery, several mysteries actually, a feeling that there is going to be a great romance, complications, hardships; all the makings of a good series. It is written well and includes humor which is sometimes missing in YA with all of the angst. Totally recommend.

    This book was fast paced and kept me wanting more. The ending though was very abrupt and for that reason I can't give it a five star rating. I need more now!!!!

    Although I enjoyed this book, it reminded me too much of The Mortal Instruments series. From the characters names, to the plot of the story, it seemed to constantly remind me of that. I did enjoy the book, and I will be continuing the series to see how the story plays out.

    The book takes place on an Earth where there are the fey (vampires, werewolves, etc), regular humans, Keepers (who track down evil fey and kill them) and Guardians (who are the investigators of those fey who are killed.) The Keepers hate the Guardians and vice-versa. Alana is 17 and is waiting for her 'mark' to appear indicating she has 'officially' become a Keeper. The best laid plans of mice and men go oft very, very wrong. Alana ends up on the other side of the fence.

Further, there's something going on with her grandfather (who gives her something special to keep.) Seems a whole lot of people think he's a bad man. So, she has to go to Guardian Academy. Another problem- the head mistress seems to hate her (Guardian/Keeper conflict) and she ends up spending more time in detention than in class. Further, the other students don't like her, she's getting messages from her grandfather in her dreams, the Water Fey want a meeting with her grandmother, there's something about Electi, her best friend is going through something and won't tell her what it is and, to top it all off, it seems someone is out to kill her. And that's just in the first book. I like her character, the others are done well and the book takes an interesting approach to human/fey interactions. I will definitely be getting further volumes in the series.

    Yeah, not for me I had hope for this book, but after reading this YA urban fantasy I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s just not for me. The murder mystery isn’t really holding my attention, and the protagonist and her partner’s interactions were just boring. Her family is too twitchy and your just know they are hiding stuff. I just don’t care enough about any of the characters to even consider picking up any of the other books.

This book captured me to the point that I was there...feeling the sadness, the grief, the frustrated anger, the slipped in not and unknown anxieties. Some of the wordings kind of threw me but just about 2.5 seconds. Nice reading for someone into science fiction. Entranced Hi have not read a book for entertainment since I don't know when.

    Interesting This book was interesting but I didn’t feel any sort of connection to the main characters. Everything felt rushed and detached, and then it ended suddenly with no resolution or anything. Probably won’t read book 2 but I was entertained and the writing was fine so some people would probably like it!

    I really enjoyed reading this book. I absolutely love Alana and Jax, and Dash isn't far off. Also I hope the author will continue the series and not leave it like that, because most reviewers feel it's unfinished. I really enjoyed reading this book.
