The Illusionists’s Apprentice was a well written story that transported me back into time by including important but not dull, historical facts. And the best part? The story included Harry Houdini.
Wren Lockhart has guts to live outside the box. Wearing men’s clothes, she’s the ultimate illusionist, not to be confused with anything involving magic. I thought this angle was intriguing. She’s loyal to her family to a fault and keeps herself closed off from the world. Thrown into solving a mystery, she finds herself falling for the investigator, Elliot Matthews.
I loved the backstory, which is super strange to say but it was intricately told without being overwhelming. The whole book had me hanging on for more.
This is my first of Kristy Cambron’s books and I’ve added two more to my must read pile. I will admit, her cover designs are a huge draw (even when I shouldn’t be judging a book by its cover).
The Illusionist’s Apprentice is a great story and totally worth the read. A five out of five stars.
I received this book from Thomas Nelson Publishers and the Fiction Guild but no review was required. All opinions are my own.
