Author's Note: Werewolf Story

Hello, and welcome to my first Werewolf book, Illusion: The Mural of King Arthur! Well, I’ve actually been working on this story since 7th grade. It was first known as All for One, then I changed it to Illusion, and now it’s the title it is now.

This is one of my most personal stories–based off when I had a great disappointment in my life–in which I felt like a complete, utter failure. However, what I learned is that “Failure is a word; it is not the end of the world.”

Considering the book’s background history, it’s no surprise that it’s one of my darker projects. I want to prove to you guys that I can write drama. Besides this, the plot takes place during the Baroque Period (1600-1750), which was time of great change. The Thirty Years’ War ravaged homes, as well as plague and famine.

While this story may be a bit more serious in tone, it still consists of qualities that I usually include in any of my fantasy stories: action, adventure, and moral lessons...not to mention my very first werewolf character, who just so happens to be one of my most favorite characters I’ve ever created.

I see a bright future for this story, if I keep working on it that is. It’s in my list of “Books I Want to Eventually Get Published,” so I could use support, motivation, and constructive criticism (no bullying!) to help me.

With all that out of the way, let’s dive into Illusion: The Mural of King Arthur!

Rachel: I don’t know if it’s just because I’m super emotional lately but cry to most of this book and thoroughly enjoyed the character of Sasha

Lisa Page Stafford: So far really good. I can’t wait to see what happens.

karene911: The continuation of this series is just as good as the first, I love there are warnings of mature or sexual themes as well as triggers. The characters feel like people you know minus the werewolf part. Great job

Sophiaxo: I recommend this book to everyone I know. It’s a really good book and has a good plot. It has you on the edge of your seat. I love Gabriel’s character development so far in the boom

Rabii: Great stories,keeps me on my toes..I don’t really have much to say after that lol they should allow us to keep these reviews short if we feel so!😂but I’m definitely recommending ALL these books to others once I’m done reading them

NeriumsPoison: Honestly was not expecting how the story was to end but loved it. It definitely could have wrapped up a little more learning about what happened to others in the school and how their lives changed but otherwise it kept me enthralled. Wasn’t too long and wasn’t too short. Definitely recommend!

Leona: Very good book... I love it please keep writing more

Dey: The author has their own type of writing style I personally like it. there are hardly any grammar mistakes which makes it easy to read to.
