My Review

I was pretty excited about reading this short story as I have a vested interest in it, as I named a character in this series! This story has so much in it for only 5 chapters and they are very powerful. The book is told from Lorelei’s POV and it is focused on one event in her life. She needs to make some important decisions that will not only affect her life, but those of her family. What they decide in Enigma will shape them all to be the people they are destined to be in the modern day.

Enigma was an intense read and we meet some of the characters at such a young age. Seeing children that are only five years old, that are so confidant and sure of themselves really makes me proud! I know that they are going to grow up and be beautiful people that will make a difference in the world!

I loved seeing this early glimpse of Lorelei’s life and to be able to meet both Ellie and Tristan through her eyes. I know I am going to love Christine’s version of Tristan and the first chapter of Dominus at the back of the book has left me wanting to see more!

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.


Critically acclaimed nonfiction and YA author Christine Fonseca is dedicated to helping children of all ages find their voice in the world. Drawing on her expertise as an educational psychologist, her nonfiction titles address issues of emotional intensity, resiliency and giftedness. In fiction, she explores the darker aspects of humanity and delivers gothic thrillers that take you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions. In life, she teaches her own children to embrace their unique talents and find their voice by being a force of positive change in the world.

When she’s not writing or developing programs to support children with exceptional needs, she can be found spending time with her family, sipping too many skinny vanilla lattes at her favorite coffee house or playing around on Facebook and Twitter.
