{Tour}Sue Duff's MASKS & MIRRORS



Synopsis:
Ian Black’s commitment to safeguarding Earth has come at a price. His career as an illusionist is at a standstill and attending to the planet’s needs has distanced him from his best friend, his guardians, and the woman he loves. When presented with an opportunity to perform, Ian seizes the chance. But moments before he takes the stage, Ian encounters the mysterious Jaered and a rebel force fighting to protect Earth alongside the Weir.

Jaered is determined to stop a malevolent Weir from releasing a drug capable of wiping out the last vestiges of their race and plunging Earth into self-destruction. But when Jaered is willing to sacrifice an innocent child to obtain the drug for himself, Ian risks everything to uncover the secrets of the rebel forces and their true intentions for Earth’s survival.

 Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. No other compensation was offered nor would it have been accepted. 

This is my review of FADE TO BLACK, book one in The Weir Chronicles.

Magic? Check. Urban fantasy? Check. Characters that intrigue you? Check. Sue Duff's FADE TO BLACK was one of those books whose premise hooked me in, combined with an interesting cover that hints of things to come, I knew I had to read this book. I was not disappointed! 

The book starts off with a bang and drops you in the middle of some action, however I found it a bit confusing at first and not sure what was going on. Duff does a wonderful job of revealing the story as it unfolds and giving you a dose of background without making it a telling or a lecture. 

Once you reach midpoint in this novel, you have a fair estimation of what's at stake, who is at play, and eager to read the rest of the story. I'm definitely looking forward to continuing reading The Weir Chronicles and have added it to my TBR!

Author Bio:
Sue 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 RMFW Colorado Gold Writing Contest. By day, she’s a dedicated speech-language therapist in an inner city school district to pay the bills 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. 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.
