I went into this book blind. I didn't even read the blurb. I had a couple of book friends say it was a top read for them so I thought I'd give it a go. I'm super glad that I did.
Immediately I knew the female lead was my kinda girl. Often I like the guy but not the chick. For awhile during this story, I was more about her than him. She's just so everyday in a realistic way, someone I could picture friending in real life.
It didn't take long for me to fall for him too. He's just very on about everything, extremely manly without being over the top. The magic scenes were extra cool. Before reading this book, I never though of illusionists as being mega sexy.
The meeting back up with a person from your past has been done before, but the mixing of his profession, her profession and a foreign setting meshed quite well to make the story unique. Also, I really like the writing voice. I'll definitely be reading more from this author.
