What Reviewers Are Saying

“In a word… beautiful. With every new installment I get to read in this fantastic series I fall more and more in love. This is by far the best novel by Sarah I have read, and one of the best books I’ve gotten my hands on of the year.”

“Many books can leave you breathless until the book abruptly ends and you have so many unanswered questions and feel cheated. That is not the case with this book. The author takes you to the very edge, then brings you back on multiple occasions.”

“LOVE LOVE LOVE this book!! Could not put it down!!”

“This is a story about forgiveness and redemption, thickly seasoned with fantasy and paranormal. Cradit has mastered connecting the dots.”

“Cradit’s ability to weave a story filled with mythology, paranormal, and the reality of life so fluidly kept me turning page after page, thoroughly engrossed. The Illusions of Eventide is by far my Top favorite of 2013!”

Book Review – Illusions of Eventide – Crimson and Clover Series by Sarah Cradit

Where do I begin? Illusions of Eventide is the third book from the Crimson and Clover Series. It could stand alone, but I really think reading at least The Storm and the Darkness would make reading this much easier.

The Goodreads description is: Nicolas Deschanel was betrayed by the only two people who matter to him. Their disloyalty stung and an overwhelming sense of loss lingers. Nicolas has lived the high life professing to not have a care in the world, and now this illusion is calling his bluff.

Determined to take control of an existence now devoid of purpose, he sojourns to his family’s holiday home on the Gulf of Mexico. Resolved more than depressed, he plans to privately say goodbye to a world which no longer needs him. Of questionable fortune, he finds a woman, Mercy, sitting alone on the shore at eventide. Nicolas is conflicted between an obligation to help, and annoyance at her intrusion.

Mercy has many layers of secrets. Deepest of all, she cannot tell this Child of Man she is thousands of years old and very powerful. In her presence, Nicolas’ own dormant powers begin to surface, triggering a sequence of events that cause both of their lives to spiral further out of control. When old friends from both sides come to help, together they all learn a painful truth: new life can only begin once you’ve set free what means the most.

My review and recommendation:
The first two books had a touch of paranormal in them, but this one went to a new level. At first I wasn’t sure about that, but the characters and the writing sucked me in. As new characters were introduced and the new world was described, I felt completely at home.

I was drawn to Mercy, even knowing all of the secrets that hadn’t been exposed to Nic yet. I could see what I thought was going to happen, but then I would be wrong. The characters unfolded in a perfect way.

Many books can leave you breathless until the book abruptly ends and you have so many unanswered questions and feel cheated. That is not the case with this book. The author takes you to the very edge, then brings you back on multiple occasions. Then when so many books would typically end, Ms. Cradit continues telling the story. She created a desire for more. And reading the first chapter of Bound, I know I will not be disappointed by the next book.

I highly recommend this book (and the entire series) if you are looking for a book to entertain you, a book to draw you into the lives of the characters, a book to let you escape reality for a few hours. The storytelling was exquisite and very well written. I can’t wait for the next book.

Illusions of Eventide will be released on December 14

I received an ARC copy in exchange for a fair and honest review, but the opinions are totally and completely my own.
