The writing is superbly detailed, and the story will keep you on the edge of your seat. The main character, Eliste, is one of the Exalted, which are the ruling class in Vonahr. When the peasantry revolt, the ruling class are cast down, and Eliste must struggle to survive in a suddenly hostile city intent on sending her to the executioner.
My full review of the book came out at Bewildering Stories today, so please feel free to check it out here. I hope you enjoy reading (or rereading) Illusion as much as I do, even if it's my two millionth time doing so!
