Quiet, controlled and serious illusionist Rhys Davenport only has part of the map he needs to find his missing brother, Sebastian, future leader of the League. Rhys and his other brother, Jovan are in a race against time and a rival faction wanting to end the Davenport control of the League. Unfortunately, as luck would have it, the missing half of the map is in the hands of the beautiful, yet prickly Corina Stratton, who also needs the map to put her mother’s spirit to rest.Was this review helpful?

If Rhys and Corina join forces to achieve their goals, can they tolerate each other’s company? Is it possible that two people who claim to have such loathsome opinions of one another, actually have a mutual attraction?? Are they both too insecure to feel worthy of the other’s affection? Will they survive Darin’s airship attacks?
Set in nineteenth century, Steampunk London, this novella is packed full of action, great dialogue and a POTENTIAL for good romance! I personally, would have liked to have seen more development between Rhys and Corina’s romantic tension.

I really enjoyed this story of love and magic set in a steam punk London. The characters were well developed and the conflict engrossing. Though it stood alone very well, I found myself wishing I had read the first book, LEGACY. It's fun to watch Rhys shed his stuffy exterior with Corina and to watch her priorities change as her feelings for him deepen. It was easy to hate the evil, Darin. And of course, I finished the book anxious to read the next installment to see how the story proceeds. My only complaint is one I often feel with books of this shorter length that I wanted more.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Corina Stratton needs the other half of a map that will save her mother. Her mother’s spirit is trapped on this realm and turning meaner every day. Due to her abilities, Corina knows she must go to the arrogant Rhys Davenport. Her goal is to steal the map and save her mother, regardless of his need to find his brother. Once they are together, they both quickly discover there is more to their connection than just a map. Questing together is their only hope.
Chased by the evil Darin and an airship of elves ... with dear friends lost and great sacrifices made... will it be enough to find Sebastian and save Corina's mother's spirit?
The League of Illusion: Prophecy is a fun, easy, steampunk adventure. Set in the 1800’s, in a world where mechanicals are the norm, Viva Anna has created a very intriguing and entertaining world.
My Complaints - I did find the emotional relationships were rushed keeping us from forming emotional attachments to the characters. That being said, I still did enjoy the story and will be continue on with this series.
