About the Author

Teri Brown is most proud of her children, but coming in a close second is the fact that she jumped out of an airplane and beat the original Legend of Zelda video game. She is a word scribbler, head banger, math hater, book reader, food fixer, kitty keeper, and city slicker. She is also the author of the Born of Illusion novels. Teri lives with her husband and way too many pets in Portland, Oregon.

Once again, I was struck by the unique adventure that Teri Brown created. I loved the characters, the mystery, and the suspense. I also loved that it was a new situation with a new bad guy, and not simply a carryover from the first book. Anna moves to London to join a European tour so she can perform her magic. She meets new people, makes new friends, and acquires new enemies. Cole is in London as well, but Anna's relationship with him quickly becomes strained. I didn't like the direction their relationship took in this book, because it felt too typical of a second book, but I liked almost everything else. These books are very clean even though there are a lot of potentially frightening scenes. If you are looking for a well written, clean YA novel with black magic and suspense, give this series a try. The only caveat is that you need to read the novella, Born of Corruption in between books 1 and 2 since Born of Deception refers to it quite a bit and you might be confused if you don't read it. Content: Some violence/scary scenes, but I consider it clean. Source: I received a digital galley of this book in exchange for an honest review.

First and foremost, I cannot say enough about the actual book itself - if you are fan of actual physical books rather than digital, this book is a treat. The cover is beautiful. The first inside pages are done in black with white lettering instead of the usual reverse, and the pages are cut with a really nice deckle edge. Having said that, the story is great. I loved Born of Illusion and the sequel does not disappoint. Ms. Brown has done her flapper research. You get a fabulous picture of city life in the 20's and particularly the role that spiritualism was playing in the culture at that time. I love the characters, and found it especially difficult to decide which guy to pull for as far as winning Anna's affections. : )
