Master of Illusion—Book One — Silver Medal Winner GEA 2014


**Winner of the Silver Medal for Historical Literature Fiction (Modern) 2014 Global Ebook Awards**

Murder, Magic, Music and Obsession:
Master of Illusion follows the lives of childhood comrades, Angel and Elise, as they run hand in hand from a history of treachery, heartache and crippling abuse. Under the mask of exceptional talent and in the name of justice, they each grapple with their own damaged version of love and loyalty, while fiercely protecting their terrible secrets.

Set in the operatic era of 19th century France, talented dancer Elise is discovered by the eminent OpĂ©ra Français and is whisked away from a simple life to fulfil her dreams of becoming prima ballerina. Her path is forever changed the day she rescues the disfigured, amnesic genius—Angel—from a life of abandonment and mistreatment. Angel's obsessions define him: his emulation of the Phantom of the Opera coupled with a latent dark side develop into a fervent passion for a young soprano. Cast under Angel's charming spell, Elise assumes the role of his protector and nurturer—only to discover that she, too, wields powers of her own: persuasion and contrivance.

In trying to reach the pinnacle of operatic success, Angel and Elise are faced with the challenge of defining justice, love and self-acceptance. Through abandonment, Angel knows only one form of love— obsession; and Elise, whose purity lies in ruins at the hands of evil, is raped of her capacity for romantic love.  Can they fulfil their childhood dreams without blood on their hands? ...
