Welcome to my WOW, or HOW as I like to call it where I feature an upcoming release that I'm hyperventilating for! It's totally fun to geek out about upcoming releases! This event is hosted by the lovely Jill @ Breaking The Spine. Today's awesome-sauce pick is....

Born of Illusion
by Teri Brown
Releasing: June 11, 2013 by Balzer + Bray

Anna Van Housen is thirteen the first time she breaks her mother out of jail. By sixteen she’s street smart and savvy, assisting her mother, the renowned medium Marguerite Van Housen, in her stage show and séances, and easily navigating the underground world of magicians, mediums and mentalists in 1920’s New York City. Handcuffs and sleight of hand illusions have never been much of a challenge for Anna. The real trick is keeping her true gifts secret from her opportunistic mother, who will stop at nothing to gain her ambition of becoming the most famous medium who ever lived. But when a strange, serious young man moves into the flat downstairs, introducing her to a secret society that studies people with gifts like hers, he threatens to reveal the secrets Anna has fought so hard to keep, forcing her to face the truth about her past. Could the stories her mother has told her really be true? Could she really be the illegitimate daughter of the greatest magician of all?
Why I'm Hyperventilating:
Holy cow. I want. I need. I'm mesmerized in the illusion of awesome I'm getting. Can't you feel the vibes of epic surrounding yourself? First off, it's historical. That's check #1 on the Bucket-List-of-Things-That-Make-A-Great-Book-For-Inky. Second, the cover is absolutely stunning. It's mysterious and that girl!! Her eye...*shivers* Plus the is kinda you know...rocking. Those swirls are phenomenal!! And then we have the synopsis. Read it carefully. 1920. Holla!!!! And all this talk of secret society, and street savvyness just makes my mouth water. I want. I need. Magicians?!!! Heck yeah.
