Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases that are eagerly anticipated.
This week, I’m waiting on Born of Deception by Teri Brown, which has an expected publication date of June 10, 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 just finished reading Born of Illusion about a week ago, and I absolutely loved it. Magic, séances, spiritualism, mystery, and a touch of romance combined with a historic New York City setting to create the perfect read for me, so to say that I’m looking forward to Born of Deception is a bit of an understatement. Especially if what I’ve heard about it involving Rasputin is true.
What books are you waiting on this Wednesday? Leave me a list in the comments below.
