Holy Moly! That's the first thing I thought after I finished reading Illuminarium: Book One of the Soliloquy's Labyrinth series, the newest offering by author Truth Devour. This book is highly unique and inventive, and will lead its readers on quite an adventure. Follow the story of a forensic psychologist named Harper who, while on a walk in the woods one day, happens upon a book, mysteriously lying there, almost as if it was waiting for her. The book brings Harper into another world, and the story of York. The more she reads, the more she realizes that this book is far from ordinary. Before she knows it, she herself is involved in what is clearly a battle between good and evil. If you want to find out which side is victorious, well, you'll just have to read the book for yourself!
I so enjoyed this book. Author Truth Devour clearly has an extremely creative mind, and this creativity was certainly well used in this endeavor. Illuminarium is a book that will keep the reader turning the pages from start to finish. It is an incredibly engrossing read. The author's ability to write a true "story within a story," telling the stories of Harper and York simultaneously by utilizing the tool of the book, was an ingenious literary trick. Any reader who loves fantasy, highly inventive works of literature or just an excellent book by a largely undiscovered author would love Illuminarium. I highly recommend this book, and will certainly be watching for whatever author Truth Devour presents to her readers next! I am certain it will be an incredibly worthwhile read!
