Another 5 Star review on Amazon:

Sword and Illusion is a must-read for fantasy book lovers. And even for those readers who don’t normally read them. This book was fantastic! I loved the characters, including the dragons, which I could easily picture from the detailed decriptions. I also liked that the main characters weren’t teenagers or even in their twenties. They were a little older, with life experience and the scars to match. The more I read of the story, the more I couldn’t put it down! Great job!!
