Synopsis:

For fans of Libba Bray and Anna Godbersen, this thrilling historical suspense novel is the story of a budding magician who has spent her life playing sidekick to her faux-medium mother—and trying to hide the fact that she possesses magnificent powers.

As the illegitimate daughter of Harry Houdini—or so her mother claims—gifted illusionist Anna Van Housen easily navigates the underground world of magicians and mediums in 1920s New York, though the real trick is keeping her true gifts secret from her opportunistic mother. But as Anna's powers intensify, she experiences frightening visions that lead her to explore the powers she's tried so long to hide.

Lovers of historical fiction and stories filled with romance and intrigue will fall for Born of Illusion and its whip-smart, savvy protagonist.

From the Back Cover:

Anna Van Housen has a secret.

A gifted illusionist, Anna assists her mother, renowned medium Marguerite Van Housen, in her stage show and séances, easily navigating the underground world of magicians, mediums, and mentalists in 1920s New York. As the illegitimate daughter of Harry Houdini—or so Marguerite claims—sleight-of-hand illusions have never been a challenge for Anna. The real trick is keeping her true gifts secret from her opportunistic mother: because while Marguerite's own powers may be a sham, Anna actually can sense people's feelings and foretell the future.

But as Anna's powers intensify, she experiences frightening visions that lead her to explore the abilities she's tried so long to hide. And when a mysterious young man moves into the flat downstairs, introducing Anna to a society that studies people with gifts like hers, she begins to wonder if there's more to life than keeping secrets.

From Teri Brown comes a world bursting with magic, with romance, with Jazz Age temptations—and the story of a girl about to become mistress of her own destiny.
