Waiting on Wednesday: Illusionarium

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine.  Click here to be taken to their website to participate in this weeks WOW.

This week I'm waiting for Illusionarium, which doesn't come out until May 19th.  Here's the cover and description from goodreads:
What if the world holds more dangers—and more wonders—than we have ever known? And what if there is more than one world? From Heather Dixon, author of the acclaimed Entwined, comes a brilliantly conceived adventure that sweeps us from the inner workings of our souls to the far reaches of our imaginations.
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.
I read Heather Dixon's other novel, Entwined, quite a few years ago.  I liked it, but I didn't love it.  Given a few years, though, and a completely new book with new characters, I'm very excited.  Plus, that cover is amazing and makes me think steampunk.

What are you waiting for?


  1. I'd never heard of this book before. I'm not sure that it would be something I would read but I hope you enjoy it.
    Thanks for stopping by my post!
