Hoping to discover an exciting new talent, Dane ventures into the coffee shop and is transfixed by the magic he sees, illusions that even he, a seasoned professional, cannot explain. But more than anything, he is emotionally devastated by this teenager who has never met him, doesn’t know him, is certainly not in love with him, but is in every respect identical to the young beauty he first met and married some 40 years earlier.
They begin a furtive relationship as mentor and protégée, but even as Dane tries to sort out who she really is, and she tries to understand why she is drawn to him, they are watched by secretive interests who not only possess the answers to Mandy’s powers and misplacement in time but also the roguish ability to decide what will become of her.
Frank Peretti has crafted a rich, rewarding story of love and life, loss and restoration, full of twists and mystery. Exceptionally well written, Illusion will soon prove another Peretti classic.

Peretti is one of kind
I've loved Peretti's work for years, original ideas, engaging mysteries, with logic reasoned out to a strong finish. I recommend his work to anyone that loves to read and think beyond the storyline. He is a Christian author and one of the reasons I started reading his work but I strongly recommend this book for science fiction lovers! You won’t be pounded by his Faith but you will get a feel for his depth of character. The science this story takes a person on is a roller coaster for sure :)
This was the first time I listened to a book read by the author, it was such fun to feel the story and excitement knowing that it was truely the way he would have wanted it.

Peretti scores a hit with this one!!
What did you love best about Illusion?
The intriguing story line that kept twisting, turning and hinting at things. You really had to pay attention to the story because what seemed like little things at the moment became significant later in the story. I would sometimes rewind and listen to parts over again to make sure I heard everything. When your cell phone rings while you are listening ... answer it but make sure you stop playing the recording ... if you don't you will find you have to keep going back to hear what you missed.
What did you like best about this story?
The love that Dane had for Mandy and the love Mandy was desperately trying to remember.
Which scene was your favorite?
OMGosh .... I don't know if I can pick just one! I loved where they danced in his bedroom but also REALLY liked in the end when they were once again "Dane & Mandy" together as husband and wife.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Not exactly an extreme reaction to this book but I didn't want to turn it off either. I would listen to this on my commute to and from work and sometimes I would sit in the car just a few more minutes just to listen to the book.
Any additional comments?
I hope Frank Peretti will be treating us to another book soon! I love his work! And I like it best when he reads the book rather than using another narrator. This was a very entertaining book for me. LOVED it!
