Illusion Book Review: Things Are Not Always What They Seem

What would you do to be able to go back in time to overcome a terrible accident, loss or a not to have a tragic life shortening disease like cancer? Would you go back in time and relive your life again or would you choose to live your life as it was?

In Illusion by Frank Perretti the main characters have to deal with these questions. Here is a brief summary of the book.

Dane and Mandy, a popular magic act for forty years, are tragically separated by a car wreck that claims Mandy’s life—or so everyone thinks. Even as Dane mourns and tries to rebuild his life without her, Mandy, supposedly dead, awakes in the present as the nineteen-year-old she was in 1970. Distraught and disoriented in what to her is the future, she is confined to a mental ward until she discovers a magical ability to pass invisibly through time and space to escape. Alone in a strange world, she uses her mysterious powers to eke out a living, performing magic on the streets and in a quaint coffee shop.

Hoping to discover an exciting new talent, Dane ventures into the coffee shop and is transfixed by the magic he sees, illusions that even he, a seasoned professional, cannot explain. But more than anything, he is emotionally devastated by this teenager who has never met him, doesn’t know him, is certainly not in love with him, but is in every respect identical to the young beauty he first met and married some forty years earlier.

They begin a furtive relationship as mentor and protégée, but even as Dane tries to sort out who she really is and she tries to understand why she is drawn to him, they are watched by secretive interests who not only possess the answers to Mandy’s powers and misplacement in time but also the roguish ability to decide what will become of her.

This was an awesome read I absolutely loved this book. It is another one of those books that once I start reading I can not put it down. The guessing game of what really happened , how it came about, and who is responsible are just some of many things that will keep the reader in suspense until the end.

This has just been released so it is only available in hardback but at $15.oo it is a bargain , it is even less if you have a Kindle. Do yourself a favor and pick up this great book it will sure to  keep the dull and boring moments away.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for the basis of my review. I am not obilgated to write a favorable review. The opinions expressed are mine.
