Illusion by Martina Boone (The Heirs of Watson Island book 3)
SPOILER ALERT! If you haven’t read the first two books in the series, Compulsion and Persuasion, Stop! I don’t want to ruin one of my favorite series for you.
“Barrie must rescue her beloved and her family from evil spirits in the masterful conclusion to the Heirs of Watson Island trilogy.
Caged by secrets all around her and haunted by mistakes that have estranged her from Eight Beaufort, Barrie Watson is desperate to break the curse that puts her family in danger—without breaking the beautiful magic that protects Watson’s Landing. To do that, she must heal the rifts that have split the families of the island apart for three hundred years, unravel the mystery of the Fire Carrier and the spirits he guards, and take control of forces so deadly and awe-inspiring they threaten to overwhelm her.
With the spirits that cursed Watson Island centuries ago awake and more dangerous than ever, she finds an unlikely ally in the haunting and enigmatic Obadiah, whose motivations and power she still can’t read—or trust. His help comes at a price, however, plunging Barrie into a deadly maze of magic and wonder, mystery and intrigue that leads through history to places she never imagined she could go.” - taken from Goodreads.com
Picking up immediately where Persuasion left off, Barrie is attempting to figure everything out, make amends and keep everyone happy. In the end, Barrie is going to have to confront some issues from her past before she can move on.
Will Barrie and Eight reconcile? Can the bindings be broken? Why did the bindings and curse occur in the first place? What secrets did Emmett Watson take to his grave? What is the curse of the Fire Bringer? Will the Colesworth gold be found? What are Obadiah’s true intentions? Can everyone have their happily ever afters?
