Fade to Black by Sue Duff Book Review

In the world of illusions there are many secrets . . . Ian Black has more than most.
Ian Black is an illusionist with a talent for keeping secrets. College student Rayne Bevan has a gift for
uncovering them. She suspects that the popular performer's skills extend beyond the stage and that he's
the area’s mysterious and elusive defender of the innocent.
In her efforts to uncover the truth, Rayne is swept into the hidden world of the Weir, a magical race
who struggle to prevent Earth from self-destructing. Her inquiries expose Ian to those who would kill
for his connection to the planet, and as he fights to keep Rayne safe, they discover a force behind the
Weir’s raging civil war—a traitor bent on launching Earth’s Armageddon.

Meet Sue Duff

Sue Duff has been writing since high school but never became serious about it until a skiing accident laid her up for an entire summer and she turned on the word processor to combat the boredom. A couple years later, her first urban fantasy novel, Fade to Black, was a finalist in the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers Colorado Gold Writing Contest.

By day, she’s a dedicated speech-language therapist in an inner city school district. But her life as a writer is her true passion and the creative outlet keeps her sane. Sue is a member of the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers and The Pikes Peak Writers. Her creativity extends into her garden and the culinary arts. Born in Chicago, she moved to Phoenix as a young child. She received her bachelor’s degree from Northern Arizona University and her master’s from the University of Denver. 

She is the second oldest of six girls with an avid reader mom and her dad, the family’s single drop of testosterone in a sea of estrogen. Fate thought it hilarious to give her a son but maternal instincts swing both ways and she didn’t break the little bugger. She lives in Colorado with her miniature dachshund, Snickers, and hears from her son, Jonathan, whenever he needs something.

My review;

I just finished reading Fade to Black and I really liked it. It is a little different than the kind of novels I usually read but it was great. It grabbed my attention  from the first page.The book is full of suspense, twists and turns.and some romance. I loved the storyline and I loved Ian and Rayne from  the beginning. I just wish that I could get the next book in this series right now and I do not have to wait for a few months. I give this book a 5/5. I was given this book for the purpose of a review and all opinions are my own.
