In the Dragon’s Eye: Illusion Town

July 13, 2016 In the Dragon's Eye 5


In the Dragon’s Eye is where I share the books I’ve got my acquisitive eye on: the ones I’m really excited about and hope to read and perhaps add to the hoard.  I also link to “Waiting On” Wednesday, hosted by Jill at Breaking the SpineCover links take you to Goodreads; all blurbs are also from Goodreads.

Illusion Town (Jayne Castle)

Ghost Hunters (Harmony) #13
Paperback: Jove, July 26, 2016
A new adventure begins on Harmony… 
With its opulent casinos and hotels, the desert city of Illusion Town is totally unique—and will take you on a thrill ride you’ll never forget.Hannah West isn’t the first woman to wake up in Illusion Town married to a man she barely knows, but she has no memory of the ceremony at all. For that matter, neither does Elias Coppersmith, her new husband. All either can remember is that they were on the run…With Hannah’s dubious background and shaky para-psych profile, she could have done much worse. The cooly competent mining heir arouses her curiosity—as well as other parts of her mind and body. And even her dust bunny likes him.

But a honeymoon spent retracing their footsteps leads Hannah and Elias into the twisting underground catacombs, where secrets from both their pasts will come to light—and where the energy of their clashing auras will grow hot enough to burn…

Why I want to read it:

1. Harmony has a Vegas-analog? Who knew? (And why hasn’t it been mentioned in any of the 12 previous books?)
2. It appears to be a sequel to Siren’s Call, and I’ve been following the series.
3. This series is improbable but a lot of fun. And there are dust bunnies. (There had better be dust bunnies.)

    A fun review! I wanted to jump into this series but it sounds just too darn complicated to not start at book one, which isn’t at my library, my B & N, or any used book shops, so I’d have to buy it online.

    And where to start? Krentz/Castle has made a convoluted series-from-a- series situation— so many overlaps!

      Well, if you want to start this particular series, begin with After Dark. While a few of the books in the middle of the series (#7 and #8) also tie in to her Arcane Society series (written under all three of her names), I think you could read them without reading the other Arcane novels. 🙂

      I would definitely start at the beginning of the series. You can’t take the worldbuilding seriously, but if you just go with it, the books are a lot of fun.
