The Enchanted Sonata
The Enchanted Sonata transforms the classic tale of the Nutcracker into a magical story of love and adventure.
This book takes place during Christmas at the end of the 19th century. It starts with Clara, a skilled pianist and prodigy. She is obsessed with this great pianist, Johann Kahler. She heard him play once after her father died and is now under the impression she is in love with him. She is also determined to make him fall in love with her in return. By the way she is 15 years old. These plans are rudely interrupted when, on Christmas, an unknown person gifts Clara with a nutcracker and a book. The book recounts events that happened to the Imperian prince Nikolai. Crown prince/soon-to-be emperor Nikolai seems pretty nice, maybe a little cocky, but overall he’s unsure of himself and his readiness to become his country’s leader. On the eve of his birthday and his coronation he is turned into a nutcracker by a man who uses music to perform magic.
Their stories quickly intertwine thanks to the fairies and the magic plaguing Imperia. Together Clara and Nikolai work to restore Imperia and defeat the musician who has turned all the children into toys.

I loved all of the characters! The nuns where a hoot! Who couldn’t love the fairies and all of their mystery? The nutcracker was endearing! I even loved Clara when she was complaining!
I loved the story! I couldn’t put the book down! Is it too much to ask to have this made into a movie? (Just in time for the holidays!)
