Post Page-turning, YA magical fantasy
Smoke and Mirrors: The Trueheart
By Helene Opocensky

MESMERIZING WORLD-BUILDING AND DYNAMIC CHARACTERS MAKE THE NEXT BIG MAGICAL FANTASY FOR YOUNG ADULT READERS A PAGE TURNER

When you’re a young orphan left to your own devices and living in the wild, finding a warm bed and a guiding hand is magical enough. But when your seeming savior offers explanations of a world of shapeshifting mages that make all too much sense, it’s downright extraordinary. Enter a world where the mystical exists alongside the ordinary, every alliance is subject to suspicion, and the fate of a magical way of life hangs in the balance of a seemingly-impossible mission in Smoke and Mirrors: The Trueheart by Helene Opocensky.

After his mother’s death, Corbin discovers an impossible talent – he shapeshifts into a crow to escape being shipped off to one of two unpleasant familial connections. When he is discovered by Maxim Moritz Grobian, he doesn’t realize how rare it is to shapeshift without instruction at his young age, or how many strings are attached to the bits of knowledge Max doles out like precious treats. Soon enough, Corbin owes Max everything and it’s time to pay the debt. Corbin is given a mission that involves a mysterious girl, a powerful crystal and an army of Inquisitors set on keeping the mages from taking their rightful place in the world.

Fans of magical realism and fantasy like Harry Potter, Six of Crows and A Court of Thorns and Roses will find a new world to get lost in when they discover and devour Smoke and Mirrors: The Trueheart.
