Enchanted Incognito, the first book in the intended Enchanted Trilogy follows the story of a teenage Athiya Sanders, embarking on a journey of self-discovery in a world of magic, social politics and time travel. Battling a ruthless enemy and dating all while trying desperately to keep up with her spells and potions homework. The novel begins with her discovery of her magical lineage and her introduction to Featherwing Magic Academy- a magic finishing school that teaches young witches and warlocks about their craft. On her first day, Athiya meets the mysterious young Elliot who is equipped with a charming smile and swoon-worthy British accent and suddenly her life becomes chaotic, exciting and so much more complex. As their romance blossoms the young couple find themselves at war with their families as well as most of the magical community. As they start to realize those they trust may not have their best interests at heart, Athiya and Elliot find themselves questioning everything.

Prologue

Smoke and darkness encapsulated me as my heart raced and my breath quickened. I was running through a labyrinth more twisted and black than the web of a deadly arachnid. Piercing cries filled my ears, causing adrenaline to course through my veins and push me forward faster. Every pounding step I took echoed around me as I kept trying to see through the dark haze. Suddenly, the harsh howl of a bloodthirsty wolf intruded my surroundings, stopping me in my tracks as my blood ran cold in panic. The dark clouds above parted, allowing the menacing glow of the moon to stretch out above me, finally shedding some light on the path in front of me. Thunder and lightning began to strike as I pushed my unwilling legs forward once again, an eerie laughter creeping up behind me. Whipping my head around to catch a glimpse of the mansion behind me where the noise seemed to have come from, my face quickly met with the soil beneath me as I tripped.

Tears began to sting my dry cheeks as I struggled to lift myself up off the ground. Something was restraining me, keeping me stuck to the ground. Exasperated, I reached my hand out trying to find something to grab onto, when a bright light radiated meters before me. Having gained a new bout of confidence from the illumination I seemed to have created, I reached back and pointed a finger at the claws of the vine that had caught my foot and it flew into the night sky, freeing me from its grasp. I started running again. Hoping this torture would soon be over, I slowed slightly, only to hear footsteps in the wake of my own. Sighing, I picked up my pace once more, turning a corner within the maze I seemed to be trapped in. Glancing back in the direction I thought I had heard someone coming, I ran straight into the protective arms of a familiar-smelling boy. I looked up bringing the light with me, to find a pair of big blue eyes searching deep into my own. High cheekbones arched over a pair of lips that turned down into a concerned frown.

He smelled musky yet clean. I couldn’t put a name to the handsome face that stood before me, but instantly my heart began to slow and my whole body started to collapse into his muscular arms. He gently put a hand around my chin and brought my face up so that I was looking at him as the corner of his mouth turned up in a half smile that kicked my heart back into overdrive. He put his arms back around my torso and held me close, making me feel safe and cared for as I nestled my face into his shoulder. As a sudden gush of air swept up around me, I pulled my face away to find that we were hovering meters above the ground, the terrifying maze drifting further and further away as we hovered towards safety.

Jenn Deering: This is a go-to story for when you're needing a little happiness in your life. It's well-crafted, and characters are true to their show-selves. The pace is right, there are minimal grammatical errors, and the plot is fresh.

Mourn8220House: When first reading "Avarice," I thought it would be another fairytale but I was taken back the author's approach and choice of ending. There is little to be said for the story and overall plot besides the sudden twists and speculation, other than that I do not want to ruin a fantastic tale, you m...

Evelyn Alonzo: I was up till three in the morning just so I could finish the story! It just really grabs your attention and you can't stop reading it at all! Lol great job, Nick! Can't wait to read your other stories!

MelanyFrey: This story is just so realistic and so amazingly written that I felt I was a part of it. It starts off completely ordinary, describing the lives of three young brothers, then slowly shifting the focus on one of them, putting him into the spotlight and following him into this unusual, but yet so r...

Jean Tryon: As a beta, I found this story outstanding!! Plot, grammar, phraseology, etc Rachel gives us it all. She takes the story into the future from where due South ends. She is an exacting and thoughtful author.

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

Elizabeth Robbins: 4.5 starsAs far as apocalypse stories go, this one took a new direction. I'm glad someone finally addressed the need for a vampire apocalypse! This is sort of a multi-genre festival of delights. With hints of forced societies, vamps, hunters, romance, apocalypse, government conspiracy, and thrill...

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

Alex Reltin: This is a great story! I love how well you go into detail and emotions of Capri, and Mel. You have amazing dialogue and overall it's just a thrill to read!The only critique I could find is that some of the paragraphs should be separated. For example:-"If Nia would have just let me take the car an...

GeorgeS: The author has a VERY refreshingly direct writing style. Sometimes being punched in the gut (or nose, as the case may be) can be an excellent thing, indeed. Whatever may be lacking in subtlety is more than made up for in the diamond clarity of character development. I look forward to MORE. I c...
