Review Delusion

Delusion Read Ü 2 ñ When two beautiful teenage stage magicians in World War II England meet a pair of handsome men who can do real magic sparks fly But is it illusion or delusion Opening night jitters are nothing new for Phil and Fee Albion who come from a long line of stage illusionists The girls love to dazzle London audiences but in the aftermath of the Blitz Illusionists The girls love to dazzle London audiences but in the aftermath of the Blitz they're bundled off to the countryside where they're safe from bombs and Nazis and bored to pieces Phil always the passionate one discovers a hidden college of real.

Phil and Fee Albion come from a long line of stage magicians and they're exceptionally good at their craft When the London Blitz begins their parents join the war effort to put their skills of illusion to good use but Phil and Fee are sent off to the country much to Phil's frustration Out in the country Phil makes a shocking discovery a school of real magicians If only she could convince them to use their powers to help England win the warSo this was all working fine for me until the end where it seriously fell apart We have two sisters one who is sweet and gentle and romantic Fee and one who is brave and headstrong and logical Phil Phil is able to discover the magician's hidden college because an ancestor of Phil and Fee's was a magician who was cast out of the collegeFee occupies herself romanticizing about living in the country and then falling in love with one of the magicians who immediately falls in love with her too but tis all in vain For the magicians can never marry or leave the college For a rather vague a suspicious reason that Phil does not completely buyPhil meanwhile is determine to do her part for the war effort and busies herself with organizing a home guard made up of the locals and works on convincing the magicians to use their powers to fight They refuses as they have live violence free lives Phil is a fiercely determine sort of girl and someone telling her no one time or 20 is not going to deter her She feels passionately about her country and wants to help anyway she can This is important to know as if makes what happens at the end all the weird This is the first thing we learn about Phil and it's reinforced over the course of the entire book nothing is going to stop her trying to protect her country or the people she loves NothingPhil's romantic interest is Arden a powerful sulky magician who tried to kill Phil when he first saw her which lucky for all involved didn't work because the Essence magic the wizards can control which is drawn from the earth can't hurt Phil or Fee It has no effect of them Arden and Phil find each other excessively annoying which of course means they are destined to fall in love at some point which they do Laura Sullivan did a good job of showing how their feelings for each other change As they get to know each other better they come to respect the other's characteristics and dedicationJust when it seems the two might get together Arden is put in the very awkward position of being asked to seduce one of the evil female magicians from Germany who is trying to wipe out all the English magicians Arden who would do anything for the college as Phil would do anything for England does so There was a lot of seducing A lot of caressing More than I really needed thank you Ick Phil sees them together misunderstandings abound and we're almost at the end of the storyArden due to the seducing knows when the German magicians will attack so they are able to prepare Phil has her home guard circled up outside the college because the German magicians are stronger than the English one since they drain people of their power bad but are not immune to guns Arden begs Phil to leave he can't bear the thought of her in danger Phil of course refuses So Arden do
