I.O. Book Tour stop - Review & Giveaway - Shrouded in Illusion by H.D. Thomson


Shrouded in Illusion
by H.D. Thomson

Someone wants Skye Hunter’s son and they’re willing to kill her or anyone else to get to him. On the run for her life, she is forced to turn to the only person who can help her—a complete stranger with a shared past—David Bishop, a renowned illusionist.
David’s life is also an illusion, built of smoke and little else. He meets Skye, a woman filled with passion and conviction, and the pain he sees in her eyes is a mirror to his own soul. But when he realizes she has the same strange, telekinetic phenomenon inside her body that he does, he is forced to question his life, his childhood and the father who raised him. Can these two lost souls uncover the mystery behind their powers and save Skye’s son and themselves in the process?

My Thoughts - 3 out of 5 unicorns - I liked it!
**Gifted to me as part of the blog tour for an honest review
This book has a lot of intrigue, and I like stories with powers like telekinesis.  I love Skye because she is a strong and very protective single mom, and this is how I like to see myself.  I don’t think we got a very good look at her son in this story.  We did learn a lot about David Bishop.  At first I thought he was sort of a jerk, but he grows on you.  My only complaint is there wasn’t enough action, and I’m sure this is just me.  I like mystery and intrigue, but I want a whole lot of action too.  I didn’t get that with this story.  I enjoyed it, but I easily put it down.  I thought this story would have more paranormal than it did. Remember I rate based on my enjoyment of the read, this is well written and a fabulous story.

I haven’t figured out if this is a series, but it has possibilities and I would probably read them.  I think people who like mysteries will love this story, but paranormal fans won’t be as satisfied.  This is a nice story though :)
