Waiting on Wednesday *53*

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by  Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming book releases that we're especially looking forward to!

This week's pick is one that I was waiting until the cover revealed to feature.  I participated in the cover reveal this week organized by Book Nerd Tours so I couldn't resist featuring it was my WoW pick:

Born of Deception by Teri Brown
Born of Illusion #2
Expected publication: June 10th 2014

Budding illusionist Anna Van Housen is on top of the world: after scoring a spot on a prestigious European vaudeville tour, she has moved to London to chase her dream and to join an underground society for people like her with psychic abilities. Along with her handsome beau, Cole Archer, Anna is prepared to take the city by storm. But when Anna arrives in London, she finds the group in turmoil. Sensitives are disappearing and, without a suspect, the group’s members are turning on one another. Could the kidnapper be someone within the society itself—or has the nefarious Dr. Boyle followed them to London? As Cole and Anna begin to unravel the case and secrets about the society are revealed, they find themselves at odds, their plans for romance in London having vanished. Her life in danger and her relationship fizzling, can Anna find a way to track down the killer before he makes her his next victim—or will she have to pay the ultimate price for her powers? Set in Jazz-Age London, this alluring sequel to Born of Illusion comes alive with sparkling romance, deadly intrigue, and daring magic.
I truly enjoyed book 1, Born of Illusion and since I read it I have been very eager to return to New York in the roaring 20's with Anna the illusionist!  This time around though the adventure seems to largely take place in London...but, I most certainly will NOT be complaining about that ;)  ''Jazz-Age'' London sounds even more enticing to me - especially when dealing with magic!

Don't forget to link me up to your WoW post!

  1. I still need to read Born of Illusion, so I didn't read the synopsis for this one, but I hope you love it as much as the first one when you get round to reading it!

  2. Nice pick! I still have to read book one but they both look like good reads.
    Hope you get it soon!

  3. Ooh, I love that you get a chance to see both 1920s New York and London in this series! How cool is that?? The first one sounded great so I'm really curious to see how the next one will fare in reviews - hopefully it will be just as strong or stronger!!

  4. That cover is soooo pretty and I love how it fits with that for book 1! I really need to get that one already >.< The whole setting and underground society for people with abilities sounds amazing!


I LOVE comments & do my best to return every one a.s.a.p. ♥
