This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
Hmm. I kind of liked Azmin, though her focus on Zane was a bit much. The powers involved here were odd - particularly that Azmin was not at all certain that she _had_ powers, or if it was just odd photos. The various villains running around and bumping into each other was annoying - Sep in particular. Stupid plotting for stupid reasons, and a nasty man. Not a favorite - not terrible, but I don't particularly want to reread it. ( )

My apologies Ms Rice for reviewing this book several weeks after I finished it. I enjoyed An Illusion of Love, especially the premise that magic Was a normal part of life , not something to be hidden like in a lot of Other stories. I enjoyed the setting, learning about early photography and having the main character buck the gender stereotypes of the day.
I hadn’t read the previous two books, though didn’t feel I was disadvantaged.

A wonderful story of long list love, without a bunch of mush! This story is very well written and keeps you on your toes with great adventures. This came out at a great time during this Covid-19 pandemic, many people can easily relate to the family troubles!

An Illusion of Love by Patricia Rice
The School of Magic Series #3

Somewhere back on the family tree Princess Azmin Dougall and Dr. Zane Dare might have relatives that were close but if so…it was long ago. The fact that the family line has hit or miss paranormal abilities means that the two might or might not have something “special” they can do. Neither Azmin nor Zane have magical genes but Azmin is beginning to wonder if her photographic skill might be leaning that direction. Ten years have passed since Azmin and Zane spent time together during summer holidays and both have changed. And yet…the spark of friendship and perhaps more seems to have been banked as embers that could be fanned into more if the two are amenable.

What I liked:
* Zane: responsible, intelligent, caring and a wee bit too focused on “the cure” for his niece. He is a scientist lost in research.
* Azmin: a woman with one foot in two cultures but not really feeling she belongs in either. She dreams of finding her paranormal ability, finding a way to use her photography to help others and hopes to be able to one day help battered women.
* Louisa: a young woman impacted by a childhood illness that has left her easily weakened by exercise – she is a delightful creature with a bright outlook in spite of everything she has experienced.
* Keya: a friend of Azmin’s that escaped her abusive husband. She has learned photographic skills and is much more than meets the eye.
* The supporting characters: one that falls for Keya, some that come to work in Zane’s household, the animals that are skilled beyond measure and some others
* That some of the poor were helped by Zane, Azmin and others
* The fun factor of being a little bit different
* Azmin’s hair ornament that was…a wee bit lethal
* The setting, plot and writing
* The way everything worked out in the end

What I did not like:
* The reminder that bigotry existed then and still exists today
* Knowing that abuse was and is still in the world
* Basically…all the bad things that happen in life or happened in the lives of those in the story

Did I enjoy this story? Yes
Would I read more in this series? Yes

Thank you to the author for the ARC – This is my honest review.
