The Illusions of Eventide is here!
The long awaited third novel in The House of Crimson and Clover series is now available on Amazon, BN, Kobo, and Smashwords! Links for Itunes, Sony, and Diesel coming soon.
Nicolas Deschanel was betrayed by the only two people who matter to him. Their disloyalty stung and an overwhelming sense of loss lingers. Nicolas has lived the high life professing to not have a care in the world, and now this illusion is calling his bluff.
Determined to take control of an existence now devoid of purpose, he sojourns to his family’s holiday home on the Gulf of Mexico. Resolved more than depressed, he plans to privately say goodbye to a world which no longer needs him. Of questionable fortune, he finds a woman, Mercy, sitting alone on the shore at eventide. Nicolas is conflicted between an obligation to help, and annoyance at her intrusion.
Mercy has many layers of secrets. Deepest of all, she cannot tell this Child of Man she is thousands of years old and very powerful. In her presence, Nicolas’ own dormant powers begin to surface, triggering a sequence of events that cause both of their lives to spiral further out of control. When old friends from both sides come to help, together they all learn a painful truth: new life can only begin once you’ve set free what means the most.
What Reviewers Are Saying
“In a word… beautiful. With every new installment I get to read in this fantastic series I fall more and more in love. This is by far the best novel by Sarah I have read, and one of the best books I’ve gotten my hands on of the year.”
“Many books can leave you breathless until the book abruptly ends and you have so many unanswered questions and feel cheated. That is not the case with this book. The author takes you to the very edge, then brings you back on multiple occasions.”
“LOVE LOVE LOVE this book!! Could not put it down!!”
“This is a story about forgiveness and redemption, thickly seasoned with fantasy and paranormal. Cradit has mastered connecting the dots.”
“Cradit’s ability to weave a story filled with mythology, paranormal, and the reality of life so fluidly kept me turning page after page, thoroughly engrossed. The Illusions of Eventide is by far my Top favorite of 2013!”
My 5 Star Review
Sarah M Cradit has done it again. I received an ARC for an honest review, but it’s one of those I’ll be buying on release day even though I’ve read it.
She has a way of bringing you into her world that keeps expanding and may just be getting a bit darker as new elements present themselves.
This story starts out with Nic down and out, contemplating offing himself. That is until a stunning woman so rudely interrupts by showing up on his island.
After Mercy tells him some crazy ass story about her husband, she just sort of sticks around, wrecking his plans.
Normally, Nic is so self-absorbed he wouldn’t bother helping, but something changes. He enlists his best friend Oz, who he happens to be pissed with. Oz in turn brings in Ana, his beloved cousin who he’s been giving the cold shoulder.
Things get crazy, Nic finds out everything isn’t as it seems, there is a lot more going on in the world than he thought. Then Aidrik walks in and throws everything on it’s side.
You’ll meet a whole new race of beings which I’m intrigued by, and people will learn valuable lessons.
Yes, I love this series and this book and I can’t wait until the next.
