Rosie Thomas ´ 5 Summary

Ie between the stifling domesticity of marriage or a downwards spiral to the streets – no matter how determined she is to forge her own pathOne night at a run down theatre she meets the charismatic Devil Wix – showman master of illusion fickle friend Drawn into his circle Eli. I liked this book It was way on the darker side than I expected Which is a nice present Sometimes the magical world can come off as just that magical The author did a good job of portraying the other side of this profession Not the one as an audience member sees as all fun and illusions but the daily grind of this work and the people who live it Kind of like carnie people at a carnival Don t let the name Devil confuse you as he turned out to be a complex character but also a likable character In fact all of the characters were good Don t get me wrong It is just that the pacing of the story was slow Which I would not have had a problem with if I had fully embraced the characters and the story itself I felt that there was a lot of dialect and at times that was all there was was talking Overall a good book So if you are looking for a book about magic with the old EnglishVictorian feel to it than you might check this book out

The Illusionists

Za becomes the catalyst of change for his colleagues – a dwarf an eccentric engineer and an artist – as well as Devil himself And as Eliza embarks on a dangerous adventure she must decide which path to choose and how far she should go when she holds all their lives in her han. I very much enjoy the magicianillusionist genre But this book is really at heart a romance There seems to be a lot of books published in the last year or so set in London in the late 1800s but that might be simply because I choose and read books in this fascinating era All of the main characters are involved in a theatre dedicated to illusion but the story is basically about a rather liberated for the time woman Eliza who is attracted to Devil a man who wants his very own performance theatre I do recommend this for people who are looking for a good historical romance with a dash of magic on the side The author Rosie Thomas appears to be rather prolific and her short biography on the book jacket indicates a life dedicated to grand adventures
