A boy and a girl.
Able to move and change the physical world, creating illusions that are real, not parlor tricks.
Trained from childhood, raised and groomed for a challenge that they don’t understand.
Tents full of wonders that soak the senses and make the imaginary reality.
A romance that cannot be.
And I’m not telling you ANY MORE. You have to GO READ IT NOW. This book blew me away. I read it in one day — the characters are rich and conflicted, so full of abilities that it’s a joy to read all the things they are capable of. The love story is absolutely pristine — it ebbs and flows with the same magical cadence as the rest of the plot. I honestly felt as if I’d stepped into this alternate universe; it’s exactly what I want from a book — a time period and way of life that’s familiar and yet so unique with people that weave in and out and settle into the story in ways I couldn’t have guessed. I wish I could read it for the first time all over again.
Rated: Moderate for one non-graphic sexual scene, two uses of strong language, one Deity term.
