A very fast-paced book with lots of mystery in it that drags the reader into the story from the very first pages. "Shrouded in Illusion" is the third book in a series but it can totally be read as a stand-alone since the plot is centred around different characters.
Skye is a strong, independent woman who will fight anything and everyone for the safety of her nine-years-old son, Tyler. While reading I put myself in Skye's shoes and I started worrying for her little man like he was mine, so the anxiety grew stronger and stronger in me, especially after an event that I can only imagine hard to digest (if that is even possible) for a mother. Thank God for David who kept me from sighing, just with anxiety at least. I enjoyed the crescendo of his feelings and the fact he's not ready to jump into 'bizarre situations' without hesitation, but I may not have enjoyed so much all David/Skye moments together. Perhaps because in a certain situation I wouldn't have thought about a particular 'distraction' at all... But I do think those two are a good match.
I wish there would have been the possibility to have more answers about the powers and the whys around them, but overall it was a good read that I'd recommend especially to those who like a thriller with paranormal elements and quite unexpected twists.
