Fans of Horten’s Miraculous Mechanisms can rejoice as Stuart Horten returns in Lissa Evans’ Horten’s Incredible Illusions. Most of the charming characters from the first book are back and those readers who wanted more of the triplets will get their wish. The positive nature of the characters is one of this book’s qualities that makes it such a rewarding read. Also, Evan’s style and voice make this book a timeless read.
It is probably best to read Horten’s first adventure–Horten’s Miraculous Mechanisms before his second adventure. First, it would be tragic to deprive yourself of that fabulous read! Second, Evans jumps right into Horten’s Incredible Illusions without a lot of back story and the reader would probably miss a few connections.
Because Lissa Evans didn’t take Stuart Horten down the expected path at the end of this book, I am quite curious to see where he goes next!
