Sixteen year old Sofia Aguilar believed she was doing the right thing when she relocated three thousand miles to be with her dying mother (mãe). Now her home is a remote, isolated village buried deep in the Amazon where nobody speaks English and where the weather is unbearable. To make things worse, Sofi's mãe is too sick to remember her own daughter. 

Bored and depressed, Sofi desperately searches for something to take her mind off her situation. It isn't long before her aunt warns her of an ancient superstition that has dominated the Amazonians' imaginations for thousands of years. The locals call it the legend of the Encantados - river dolphins that transform into mystifyingly attractive young men and women.

 Encantados can control the weather, bend humans to their will, and even invade dreams. Instead of avoiding these enchanted monsters, Sofi seeks one out named Amancio, and strikes a deal with him. She will help him uncover his memories if he can find a cure for her mother. At first Amancio seems sincere in their bargain, but Sofi will soon learn that these shapeshifters are not at all what they seem.

And so the Encante Trilogy begins . . . 

Lovely cover done by @seventhstar

Dolphins? Is this that story were the kids crossed over a rainbow and fell off the rainbow and were turned into dolphins? I can't remember were that myth came from, not were I heard it.

From reading the prologue, I've fallen in love with the story. It's so well written and I can easily imagine what's going on in this chapter. Plus the cover is indeed amazing, I like it. 💖

So, they are like the Amazon warriors? The greek mythological female tribe? Or is this in THE Amazon?

Here after Mirage and Grenadine Dreams (which are both AMAZING!!!). Excited to see where Natasha, Uri and Janus are heading. You have a magically beautiful mystic about your writing style. I'm sure I won't be disappointed with this trilogy 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽

I'm intrigue by this sentence. In my country Encantado is a magical deity. So I'm curious to find out what're they in this story.
Haruka (haru) from Free Iwatobi Swim Club. OMG don't know if this was intentional or by accident but I love it. Haru is always being referred to as a dolphin because of how he swins
