Mystery, danger, and romance abound in the secretive, and often dark, worlds of the early FBI and that last days of real vaudeville. I have to admit that I didn't really connect ...

On 4/5 A.M. Heath wrote: I appreciated the direction Cambron took when dealing with magicians and illusionists. Upfront, her main character made it clear that she doesn’t believe in or claim to have magic. She’s an illusionist, which means she sets out to trick you, but at no point does she call upon the power of magic to ... Book Review: The Illusionist's Apprentice

The story broke the mold of her former novels, and through its dark and mysterious tone what shone through most brightly was light and hope. Our story opens ...
