Kristy Cambron to Writer’s Corner. I am sharing her latest book TheIllusionist’s Apprentice published by Thomas Nelson. I received no financial
compensation for this review.
Kristy Cambron is a very popular author in Inspirational Fiction genre. She
just received an Inspy award nomination for her book The Ringmaster’s Wife. Her other
novels are very popular as well.
Stapleton is attempting the grandest illusion of all time. He will try to bring
a man back to life that has been dead for many years. When his attempt fails
certain key characters are there to witness what happens next. The FBI led by
Elliot Matthews and his partner Connor Finnegan. Then there is Wren Lockhart
the famed apprentice of Harry Houdini. The FBI feels that Wren knows more than
she is willing to share about this grand illusion. Will Elliot be able to
unearth her secrets before it is too late? What really happened that day in the
this book! I found it refreshing style that was different from some of the
other authors I have shared here. The Jazz age seems to be a popular era in
publishing houses. Ms. Cambron wove the story around the history of her main
character Wren Lockhart. Readers know that Wren is important to the story, but
do not know how her past impacts the story. It was a satisfying read. She
includes a character from history Harry Houdini. Readers can visit the notes at
the back to find out more information about how the story was crafted.
I read someone new I try to follow writing style. A reader will want to
understand how the story is structured because it makes for a more entertaining
read. I was a little confused by the structure of the story at first. Once I
understood it; I very much enjoyed the story. Wren Lockhart is quite the
complex character. I thought the author did a great job of revealing her
character a little over time. The pacing was good as well!
look forward to reading more from Kristy Cambron in the future. To learn more
about the Inspy Awards and what it does for Christian Fiction.
