This deserves more hype and if you have the chance for an amazing and very well developed fantasy world with a HUGE AND BEAUTIFUL character development and almost all the tropes you're obsessed with, this is definitely the best book! Together Ren and Cas will have to charm an assassin, confront old loves, befriend pirates, grow their powers, and navigate their feelings for each other if they wish to save the Kingdom of Puerto Leons. And as for Leo, we get to see more of him in Illusionary which I consider one of the best gifts Zoraida Cordova have given us. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. The court intrigue of Incendiary did it for me a little more than the runaway adventure story we got in Illusionary and some aspects—especially the ending—could have been more fleshed out.

We get character development, friendship, redemption, a beautiful romance that left me aching for more. Not that I didn’t like her in the first book, but it’s always beautiful to see a character become a better version of themselves. Renata’s development as a character coupled with the sweet romance was a soothing balm for my heart. They’ll love where the characters all end up and how neatly everything was tied together with a little bow, but I personally didn’t really enjoy it. Illusionary is the sequel to Incendiary by Zoraida Córdova, this review might contain spoilers for the first book in the series.There were a few new characters that I really enjoyed, but on a whole this was just a slow journey for them to retrieve the Knife of Memory. Chris Stolz is known as one of the top up and coming illusion designers in the industry today with incredible creations like his gorgeous looking sawing illusion "4 Way Split" or his incredibly practical levitation for the small stage "Sound Waves".

Together, Ren and Castian have a chance to save everything, if only they can set aside their complex and intense feelings for each other.Support me by using my affiliate links when purchasing books: Blackwell’s | Book Depository | Forbidden Planet | Waterstones.

It’s steeped in a deep history built into the world and the lore of a magic knife and those with magic wanting to feel safe and belong somewhere.

I enjoyed this second book more than the first, but the first book it's also needed because we have to know the characters first and Castian's background to fully understand him and connect with him in the second book and the author achieved that 100% I loved Castian and Renata's chemistry in this second book and i loved to read more about them and Leo than the other characters. All props are designed to pack down effectively for transport and most of the illusions can be performed surrounded or with audiences on three sides. They both have been through a lot, and shared a bond from the beginning that made it hard not to believe they will find their way back to each other. Alcohol abuse led to her mother’s losing her job, and Iris has dropped out of school and found work utilizing her writing skills at the Oath Gazette. Whether you simply liked, loved, or were on the fence about Incendiary I wholly recommend giving Illusionary a read!This novel, similarly to the first book, focuses on Renata and her previous trauma as someone who was used as a weapon by the kingdom. We venture into Louzou, sailing across the Castinian sea, encountering pirates, and learning new aspects of the kingdom’s magic.

Their backstory, revealed in tantalising snippets, only made their relationship all the more appealing.Initially, I found it difficult to connect with and understand Renata, however my response to her was a mirror to how she felt about herself.
