OLDER FICTION
Boone, Martina

Illusion

(4) YA Heirs of Watson Island series. In this series conclusion, Barrie struggles to heal Watson Island's rifts and salvage her romance with Eight Beaufort. Origins of the paranormal gifts and ancestral curses ornamenting this Southern gothic series are finally explained. The book somewhat awkwardly struggles to sustain the plantation heirs' primacy in the story while still acknowledging injustices suffered by its African and Cherokee slaves and their descendants. Historical notes included.
