Ivee Olivares trained as a visual artist, graduating from the London Institute’s Chelsea College of Art and Design. But it was after losing sleep over one too many mystery thrillers that she decided to give writing novels a try. As in her art, she usually gets her inspiration for her stories during long afternoon walks. Unfortunately, her ideas also have the knack of keeping her up and writing way into the night.

The need to satisfy her curiosity, leads Dr. Neroli Sonnclere on a harrowing adventure. “The Illusion of Smoke,” a prequel in the Sonnclere Mysteries. While I’m usually not into origin stories, this one was pretty good.
For the uninitiated, Sonnclere is a young female scientist who with a case of Hyperosmia, a disorder which gifted her with an extraordinary sense of smell. Sonnclere’s heightened sense of smell, combined with her vast scientific knowledge, allow her to have some interesting advantages when it comes to solving problems and staying safe.
“The Illusion of Smoke” is an action packed book with some cool uses of science. Assuming that you enjoy mysteries and have some interest in the field of science, you’ll more than likely enjoy “The Illusion of Smoke.”
I liked the book because it did a great job telling an origin story, while still managing to be an entertaining stand alone read.
