Tell us what you like, so we can send you books you’ll love. It is well worth the read. This book is mostly Christian by virtue of what’s missing – In high school, the majority of my reading was made up of Christian fiction. I found myself invested in the story and the development of the story more so than the characters and the development of the characters. The girl thinks she has gone crazy because she “remembers” sitting under a tree at the fair inbut all of a sudden it’s Sometimes humans go further than they should, challenging boundaries and the scope of their capabilities.

Illusion is a book illision will get inside your head and make you believe in the unbelievable. Once the awkwardness was gone, the characters began to come to life and grab my attention. It is then she realizes she has unusual powers and is drawn back into the world of magic where she feels she has lived a life before.

View all frnk comments. You struggle for the entire first half of the book trying to make sense of it all. As the two are drawn together and Dane can just not get past the fact that this young woman strangely resembles a young Mandy, the mystery begins to unfold as questions are asked and the story prretti.

Return to Book Page. Even if you are not a Peretti fan, pereti you’re looking for something different in the realm frabk Christian fiction, this is it. I do miss the entwined biblical message in the book as I have grown accustom to from Mr. Overall, I enjoyed the endurance of Dane and Mandy’s love, which I believe is symbolic of God’s unconditional love.

I received Illusion by Frank Illuion compliments of Simon and Schuster Publishers for my honest review and can’t tell you just how great it is. He broke again, covering his eyes to ward off the vision of her hair crinkling, vaporizing down to her scalp, steam and smoke rising through her blouse, flames licking through the broken glass, but it remained. Peretti definietly kept my attention through the entire novel. Yes, poor soul Mandy thrown for a loop, and then having to figure life out in a decadent and evil world In one sense, books are like cakes–the recipe may be more enticing than the taste.

The house was just a frame around the picture. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. I can confidently say that this is my favourite Frank Peretti book to date, a book that I not only found entertaining, but one that will long stay with me as I ponder the symbolism embedded in its p 7 years is a long time to wait for a new book from an author.

If you like christian fiction, fantasy, romantic-suspense and sci-fi drama rolled into one, then you will like this book.

Of course there frajk this is a novel. The Oath was awarded the Gold Medallion Award for best fiction. Aug 19, Candy rated it really liked it. And the random inclusions of cheesy faith were annoying from someone who usually handles faith so much more believably.
