Rating: 5 Cups
Germaine St. Justine is looking for an indefinable characteristic that displays virtue to portray the character of Lucy in his upcoming production. When he sees Claire, he is certain she is the perfect choice.
Claire Daniels does not wish to lose her dying brother. She will do anything to save him, even if she has to turn to a vampire for help. Claire has no idea at what length it will cost her.
When Germaine called for someone to play Lucy, experience was not something that concerned him. He was looking for a certain unique quality that was not easily taught. The moment Claire entered, she was exactly what he sought. He was willing to risk everything, even life for her. Claire desires to play the role of Lucy in the Dracula production. If only she did not have to endure her mother’s endless days of cancer or her brother’s grave illness. There is something about Germaine that pulls at her inner heart. If it means losing her heart and soul to Germaine to give her brother the chance at life, she is willing to do so.
Mortal Illusions is a story that grips and engages the reader. There were many times that I was full of sadness, and then elated with joy. The characters of Germaine and Claire definitely pull the reader into their lives permitting them to share their wide range of emotions with the audience. The animosity, disloyalty, and anguish is overpowering as it passes down through many ages. Kathryn R. Blake pens a wonderful story that is breathtakingly captivating. The additional characters added great profundity to the tale. The storyline moved at a good pace and kept this reader aching for more of this precious gem. An extraordinary read that should be enjoyed by all.
