Born of Illusion

Born of Illusion - Teri Brown *4.5*

LOVED this book!! The 1920s setting is fantastic, the magic captivating, and the plot intriguing. This is such a fun book! I loved the characters, especially the main character, Anna, and her relationship with her mother. There's also a lovely romance.
The historical element really made the story and I really felt like I was transported back in time! There're some familiar names and I loved reading about the speakeasies and all of the clothing!
The magic aspect gave this book a real kick. It's fun reading about the trickery of the magicians of the time, but I love how Anna actually does have some powers, so there's a dash of supernatural.
Overall, if you are interested in 1920s historical fiction, this one is great!
I found the plot slightly predictable and it didn't keep me on the edge of my seat, but it did keep me reading :)
