Waiting on Wednesday #29: Born of Deception by Teri Brown May 7, 2014


Waiting on Wednesday” is a weekly event hosted by Jill at the Breaking The Spine. It showcases upcoming releases we’re anticipating!



My pick of the week is:

Born of Deception (Born of Illusion #2)


By: Teri Brown


Coming: 10 June 2014


Publisher: HarperCollins, Balzer+Bray



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.


Why I’m excited:

Um. Historical fiction. Illusions. Magic. Fantasy. It’s everything I love. I haven’t read the first book yet, but I’m totally excited about this one.

Why I need you to be excited:

The same reason I’m excited! Get pumped up!
