In the country of Albion, Jessamin is looked down on because of her Melei heritage. Cast out and lonely, Jessamin turns her attention to her studies at school. One day a bird snatches a piece of her hair out and she meets the charming Lord Finley Ackerly, and after that, fate decrees Jessamin to get swept up in a magical, romantic, and dangerous adventure over Albion and Melei politics.

It contains:

• Kissing
• Violence (deaths, shooting, broken fingers, twisted neck, a woman is attacked by birds, reference to rape, mention of past murders)
• Reference to prostitution
• Mention of affairs
• Crude drawing of a woman’s body
• Jessamin and Finn share a bed and they sleep together (in the innocent sense)
• Champagne drinking

Illusions of Fate is set in a charming, Victorian-like fantasy world. The plot moves at a smooth pace and the story contains likable characters. Jessamin is an especially strong female protagonist, and the romance between her and Finn is powerful, but not overbearing.

  1. A very well done historical fantasy by White. This was very different from her Paranormalcy series, but in the end I actually liked this book better than that series. I would recommend to those who love light-hearted historical fantasy with some mystery and romance.
