Review: Illusions in Paint by Ann M. Miller

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Illusions in Paint is the second installment of the Captured in Paint duet. You can read my review of Captured in Paint here. 

We follow Julia Parson’s continued story after releasing Nick from the painting her mother had put him in. With her locket back in her possession, she should have a better grasp of her ability. Unfortunately, nothing could be further from the truth. Now, her abilities are seemingly acting on their own, worsening, revealing new facets of her abilities. A mysterious woman calls out to her, endangering not only her but everyone around her. Desperate for answers, she’s joined by once-enemy Luke and her boyfriend Nick to find a way to control her newfound abilities. 

It’s not often that I read a book and find myself surprised by the end. Illusions in Paint succeeded in throwing me a curveball, and, frankly, I am quite ecstatic about it. As I said in my last review, Miller’s writing is absolutely gorgeous. The attention paid to character development was absolutely wonderful. I can say that with utter certainty because there were points where I was quite peeved with the main characters. I thoroughly enjoy when writers allow their characters to stumble and learn from their mistakes — even when it risks ticking off the readers. So, hats off to Miller there!

In my last review, I mentioned that my only criticisms centered around the length of the chapters. For those of you who are like me and prefer shorter chapters, you might struggle a bit with the beginning of both Captured in Paint and Illusions in Paint. But, these books (Illusions in Paint in particular) draw you in quite easily and make it so that you don’t want to put the book down at all! I devoured this book in one day, and I’m not ashamed to admit it.
