Waiting on Wednesday: Illusionarium
by Heather Dixon
Publication Date: May 19, 2015
Jonathan is perfectly ordinary. But then - as every good adventure begins - the king swoops into port, and Jonathan and his father are enlisted to find the cure to a deadly plague. Jonathan discovers that he's a prodigy at working with a new chemical called fantillium, which creates shared hallucinations - or illusions. And just like that, Jonathan is knocked off his path. Through richly developed parallel worlds, vivid action, a healthy dose of humor, and gorgeous writing, Heather Dixon spins a story that calls to mind The Night Circus and Pixar movies, but is wholly its own.
Why I'm Excited
- Heather Dixon has finally written a new book! I loved her other book Entwined so much.
- It looks steampunk-ish.
- And sounds whimsical.
