How we are killing it and a sympathetic approach to it from perhaps it's own paradigm. There is a lot of attention on Global Warming right now and it has inbeded itself in all forms of entertainment in an attempt to sway others to do more to be green. Unlike other attempts, the book isn't preachy or too heavy handed. There is enough here to get the point across and yet still be an entertaining fantasy novel. You don't feel like you are reading a pamphlet from the offices of Al Gore, you are reading a fleshed out and rich fantasy novel.
The book begins with the death of Tatiana's parents but it is such a sudden and quick covering of the topic that it doesn't really hit home. The death of her brother, Isaac, is what really brings the most emotion in the book. He was a character you immediately rooted for and the relationship between Tatiana and himself is so endearing that you can't help but find Tatiana even more of a sympathetic character. Luckily, Issac becomes such an integral part of the story that you don't just have to write him off, so to speak which results in an enthralling twist. The relationship with Tatiana has with Adam is sweet and well timed out.
By the time the truth comes out about him you are already deeply invested in his character. All and all it is a great book and has wonderful cover art to accompany it. It's worth the buy. Jun 26, Yan rated it it was ok. First things first, kudos goes to Christina for being a self-published author!
Washington Irving was a self-published author at one point and we can see how far he went in the literacy career! Anyway Behind Every Illusion gives the reader a fresh new idea of how fairies are perhaps evolved for the global epidemic. My biggest struggle with the novel is the length. I First things first, kudos goes to Christina for being a self-published author!
Behind Every Illusion could have used a good trimming in the excess length. I skimmed a good chunk of the beginning because it had no actual purpose within the storyline.
It was too much college experience worth about pages or so. To tell you the truth, I had to skim some of the middle as well. I did enjoy the buildup.

The family relationship was comforting to say the least, loved the plot twist involving said member with unexpected death and saddening love declaration. I would have like understand more of plot.
I did find out that there are really weird things you can find in forums… Overall: I hope the sequel covers more. A bit wordy and not much of plot line filling in. Hoping that the sequel covers those tracks. Not bad. Aug 02, Wendy rated it it was amazing. I really enjoyed this book! The main premise behind the book is that humans are damaging the earth beyond repair so a new race of beings must develop in order to save the planet.
This is where Tatiana comes in. At the age of 18 she begins to have some strange changes in her appearance and perception that lead to her understanding that she is this something else. However, as an introvert, it is difficult, if not impossible for her to figure out what she is supposed to do with her powers.
She is I really enjoyed this book! She is guided by her brother until a terrible accident and then must find her way on her own. Through a forum that her brother used, she finally begins to feel comfortable in her new skin and wings. As Tatiana discovers more of the truth about herself and her family, she is able to better appreciate and use the powers given to her. This is an amazing start to what I hope will be an amazing series. I can't wait to read more about Tatiana and her adventures.
Jul 09, Trupti Dorge rated it really liked it Shelves: i-own , review-copy. Behind Every Illusion is the first book in the GreenEarth series. This book has fantasy and it has magical creatures but nowhere does it divert from its main goal. The story revolves around making the earth a better place and stop all the destruction man is causing.
This book has the most apt title and book cover. I found myself looking at the girl with the wings many times when I was reading. After her eighteenth birthday, Tatiana notices some changes in her, physical and otherwise. She is confused, overwhelmed and in denial.

Tatiana has a very close knit family which consists of her younger brother Isaac, her elder sister Bethany and her aunt Ruth. Her parents died in a car accident when she was 11 years old. Isaac, her younger brother who is interested in Mythology and is also very active on mythology forums, knows that there is something different about her.
He helps Tatiana understand and accept her powers and changes. Behind Every Illusion is not a very plot driven book. In fact, considering its fantasy, it hardly has any action in it. It focuses more on Tatiana and her growth as a person and the new creature that she is changing into. Its the kind of book that starts slowly, in fact is pretty slow in pace throughout, but that worked for me as it let me sink into the story. And in spite of it, I found it very difficult to put down. Moreover this book has a message. But the point that the book makes here is whether the Earth will evolve to combat the environmentally hard conditions that man has created.
I did have a couple of problems with the book though. I felt it was too descriptive at times. There is nothing left for the reader to assume.

But its something that I got used to. I would also have liked a little action at the end. But then considering how Tatiana is, that would have been a little unbelievable. But still. This review was based on an ARC, the author has informed me that the final book is cut down by 20, words and it might be possible that my complaints are no longer valid : Behind Every Illusion has a very fresh take on mythology and fantasy. We should have more books like that. Dec 30, IceJewel rated it really liked it.
