    From the moment I read the blurb for Mirage, I wanted to read it. The setting is awesome; there aren't enough stories set in the desert among nomadic people if you ask me. Alex Talbot is a strong willed, stubborn woman who meets her match and willing conspirator in Viscount Blakeney. The characters are searching for Pharaoh's treasure, but stumble onto much more than that. There is more going on than just finding a few dusty relics. From the beginning of their acquaintance, someone is out to stop Alex from finding the treasure her father knew existed in the desert. I liked Alex's spunk; she's an intelligent, stubborn heroine that has latched onto a dream and tries to see it through. She's not a bad-ass kind of woman, though she's more than capable of standing on her own two feet and it's her moments of vulnerability that endear her to you. It's the deception and lack of communication between hero and heroine that create half of the problems, and borders on the edge of monotonous. Okay, not really because there's so much else going on, but if the plot wasn't so rich and active, the lack of communication would seriously irritate me. I know this is a me thing, I'm a communicator by birth and I just don't get how people can't stop and communicate things. Bah! That said, the characters spark on paper is great; I'm a sucker for acceptance stories. One character with a blemish or a bad history or something that makes them shrink away from others being loved and accepted - yeah, I'm a total sucker for THOSE stories, and Mirage has that element in play. The one thing I didn't like was towards the end where the culmination of several non-communicated issues comes to a head - if I were Alex, there would be a bit more of hell to pay for the silver tongued Viscount.
