    4.25 / 5 starsNote: For those who've yet to read part 1 or part 2 of Entranced, this book has both parts combined. For those who've already read part 1, skip to chapter 13 to begin where part 1 ends and part 2 beginsEntranced (Book One of the Guardian Academy series) is a lot different than its predecessor, the Falling Star/Shattered Promises series. 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.

    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.

    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. It’s even perfect for the younger YA crowd. The writing was good, I’ve read a couple of Sorenson’s books. 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

    '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. 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. Allfeisty 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...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.

    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.

    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.

    Been a while since I read a Jessica Sorensen book, but after wrapping up the Bad Boy Rebels recently I couldn't wait to fall into more of her exciting tales. The Guardian Academy series piqued my interest and definitely keeps her streak of amazing works in play. So curious to dive deeper into the back stories of a few key characters (Jax/Dash just to name a few) onto book 2......

    EntrancedHi have not read a book for entertainment since I don't know when. 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.

    This is book one in the series. It introduced the characters and set up the story nicely. It is a short, easy read. I'm not sure how many parts are going to be in the series, but so far it has my interest.

    Sometimes I feel as though the YA market is overrun with books about girls running off or being sent to a paranormal academy or some sort. In "Entranced" Jessica Sorensen wrist an amazing tale that centers on the characters and plot rather than 'the academy.'Alana has come from a long line of keepers. She is anxiously awaiting the day when her mark will appear and she can join her family in taking out paranormal predators. After over hearing her parents talking about sending he away to boarding school in order to keep her safe, she concoct a plan to take out a vampire queen, Anataysia. However, he cousin uncovers her plan and calls in the keepers. As Alana attempts to make sense of the situation, she feels a burn on the back of her neck and wonders if she is finally going get her mark. When she goes into the bathroom to check she is saddened to learn she just us a little irritated spot. As Alana exists the bathroom he accidentally runs into an irritating werewolf who seems to know who she is and what she is up to. When she goes outside to get air, she is shocked when he body of the vampire queen is thrown from the top is the building. As the keepers begin to question her, she receives the news she us been waiting for. Alana receives her mark but it is not that of a keeper but of a guardian and the two don't like each other. Keepers use the strength to kill paranormal criminals and Guardians investigate crimes. That is when Alana is sent on the east coast to the academy and teamed up with none other than the infuriating werewolf, Jax, she had previously run into.As Alana and Jax get to know each other, her beloved grandfather is murdered and accused of thievery. Now, Alana is determined who killed him but wasn't expecting him to talk to her in her sleep. Alana is in big trouble not just because the students of the academy are bullying her but because now she is being hunted by an unknown secret organization. My, my, my what a mess!This book has a snarky teenage girl who is constantly breaking the rules; yet, you can't help but like her. Ms. Sorensen keeps the reader on the chair of your seat all while creating a plot filled with mystery and intrigue. The only thing missing for me was a noticeable lack of action. Hopefully, book two will correct this.

    A Fast & Simple ReadWhile the plot is not a bad one, I second the comment about it being very similar to Vampire Academy (which was a better read because there was a little more meat to the story and narration). I disliked the superficial, archetypal teenager voice narrating the story, as I think it makes her sound much more young and insecure than I expect the author intended. I read this book in less than 2 hours, so if you want a quick supernatural YA book, give it a shot but don't expect a clear ending....there are other books to check out.

    This book does not flow smoothly, but I still got invested in Alana. She felt real and she wasn't a flighty, typical teen. She expected to get her "mark" as a Keeper. Her family are all Keepers. Her grandfather is an enigma and I'm not sure I want to know what happened to his essence. He was 'killed'? I'm not sure what he was accused of doing because it's not stated other than stealing a dagger and giving it to Alana for safekeeping. Alana receives her mark, but it's a Guardian mark instead of a Keeper. She will have to attend a Guardian academy away from home. Her best friend is her cousin, Jayse. He's not really written well either. I don't really know enough to care. Something happened (unknown, of course) and he was hiding it from Alana. They go their separate ways.Jax, a Guardian, escorts her via plane to the academy. He is intelligent, but I don't have a feel for him. Other than the typical he's hawt, tatted up and gorgeous, there's not enough backstory on him. He's a werewolf but nothing was explained about how he became one. His brother, Dash, seems very interesting, especially his vanilla scent lol. I don't know if he's a werewolf also, but he's charismatic. Heck, I remember him the best!I'm not certain if I will read book 2, I don't know when it comes out because I can't find it on Amazon. The writing needs to be more concise and the characters connected a little bit better than they are in this book. Alana's parents and grandmother also feel genuine. The whole Guardian vs Keeper rivalry feels forced. Everyone hating on her at the academy seems over the top. I would give this book 2.75 to 3 stars.

    Alanas parents are well known and respected Keepers and she can't wait to get her mark and follow in her parents footsteps. Her cousin Jayse already has his mark and Alana has to wait impatiently while Jayse gets to work on cases for the Keepers. Surely it won't be long now until her mark appears, right? Wrong. It seems fate has a different plan in store for Alana. She does finally get her mark, but it's not the mark she was dreaming of. She gets the mark of the Guardians, which means she won't get to be partners with Jayse or work with her parents. Instead, she must enrol at a Guardian school across the country and start her new life away from everything she knows....Apparently, this series is a spin off series from another set of books by the author. I haven't read them yet, but I have recently read two other books by this author (nameless 1&2) which I enjoyed and led me to find more of her work.I really enjoyed the mystery of this book and the relationships between the characters. It's quite short (but apparently it's a novella series) and it leaves you with more questions than answers, which may annoy some people. For me, it only made me more curious to find out what is happening and eager to read the next book. Which I started reading straight after finishing the first. It's full of supernatural goodness.I don't know what it is about this author, but I found myself just getting lost in the book and flying through it again, like her other books. I'll definately be looking for more of her work after this series

    I liked the synopsis for this book but it doesn't feel like a complete book, more like 1/2 or 3/4. There's no resolution of any of the story arcs that have been laid out throughout the series. The major cliff-hanger ending is designed, I'm sure, to get you to buy and read the remainder of the series which is annoying and in my opinion something a good author shouldn't need to do. I noticed no particular spelling or grammatical errors and the story moved along at a decent pace. Though some of the twists/turns are predictable I don't feel like they take away from the story. I liked that Alana seems to be, at this point in the story, a strong female character who isn't without her faults/weaknesses. I'll probably read the next in the series to determine whether I'll continue on with the series.

    This is a spin-off series of the Fallen Star series. Alana is the daughter of Gemma & Alex from that series. She is chosen to be a Guardian unlike the rest of her family, most off which are Keepers. Her grandfather gives her a dagger for protection. It isn't until late that she realizes that the dagger is more than he let on.Her grandfather is murdered and Alana insists on helping the investigation, despite not being trained yet. Her family is treated badly because they think her grandfather was a thief. Lots of supernatural creatures are turning up dead and the Guardians are tasked with this investigation. I liked this story but it really felt unfinished. I hope that book 2 will finish it for me. I loved all the supernatural creatures. I also haven't finished the Fallen Star and the Fallen Souls series so I plan to go back and read those.
