Review of THE LORD OF ILLUSION



THE LORD OF ILLUSION may be purchased here.

THE LORD OF ILLUSION
Kathryne Kennedy

Drystan Hawkes, who has elf blood, has been raised in Wales to save him from a possible death sentence at the hands of the Elf Lords.   The Elf Lords rule England with an iron fist and bring children with elf blood to test them.  If the children are too powerful, they are killed, so that they won't be a threat to the Elf Lords.  When Drystan gets a vision of the woman, who may be the key to opening the portal to Elfhame and possibly sending the Elf Lords back, he knows he must find her.  Camille Ashton, the slave from Drystan's visions, is in a precarious position, when Drystan arrives and saves her.  This is only the beginning of the adventure for these two.

Filled with magic, action, adventure, and complex characters, THE LORD OF ILLUSION brings to conclusion Ms. Kennedy's wonderful fantasy series.  Drystan is determined to prove himself more than a scholar and to find Camille, whom he has fallen in love with through his visions.  Camille, who has known great struggle and degradation, finds it hard to trust Drystan, at first, but his true character shines through, and she grows to love him.  The secondary characters, many of whom appeared in previous books, capture your heart.   I, especially, love the dragons.

All in all,  THE LORD OF ILLUSION is a fitting conclusion to an enjoyable fantasy series.
