Spotlight: Sleight of Hand by Sue Duff

Sleight of HandIn the past year, I grown to love Fantasy novels in all shapes and sizes. Whether is something like Throne of Glass,  The Selection, or Lord of the Rings, the Fantasy genre has crept its way into my soul and has become a new favorite of mine. I still have a tendency not to reach for a Fantasy novel at first glance, but I do not shy away from them anymore. So if you are a big Fantasy reader then I recommend you add Sue Duff’s Sleight of Hand to your TBR list. The third installment of the Weir Chronicles and Sue even promises there are two more books to come after this! YAY! So if you are looking for a fantastic, epic Fantasy series to loose sleep over then you need to check out the Weir Chronicles, starting with Fade to Black, Mask of Mirrors then dive into Sleight of Hand.  You can blame me later for now staying up all night, being kept up with Sue’s magical story telling.

” A magical race of beings, the Weir have served as caretakers of Earth for thousands of years. But when they are pitted against each other by outside forces sucking life from the planet, it’s once again up to a young illusionist to come to mother nature’s rescue in the third installment of the Weir Chronicles, S​leight of Hand.​ As the epic story continues, main protagonist Ian Black is poisoned by rebels and it’s up to friends Rayne and Patrick to find a cure before he succumbs and Earth’s fate is left in the hands of adversaries intent on taking control of the planet. To save Ian, Rayne must travel to an alternate world few have survived while Patrick unearths the secrets of the rebels to discover a truth that shatters his beliefs about the Weir and the future of their planet.” – Sleight of Hand

“A stunning debut with a thrilling mix of sci-fi and fantasy. Duff has a real hit on her hands.”– Roxanne Kade, b​logger at​T​herian

“I recommend this to anyone who loves a good Sci-fi esque, fantasy, dystopian, secret-war-going-on-behind-the-human’s-backs-and-right-under-their-noses sort of book.”— Jaay V, blogger at R​eckless Indulgence

“This is one series that I recommend to readers of fantasy and paranormal romances. You will not be disappointed.” – Jessica Bronder, blogger at J​Bronder Book Reviews

“You may lose sleep. The action is fast paced and it’s refreshing to see a book in this genre with a male protagonist! I truly enjoyed his journey to self-discovery.”

“I love that Sue Duff does not dumb down her writing to make everything repetitious each time – she let’s you figure out the rules yourself while you read. Her style of writing really suits the smart world-building, and I also fell so in love with the characters.”

“A magical tale filled with likeable characters.”

About the Author

Sue Duff has dreamed of dragons and spaceships before she could even read, so it’s only natural that she now combines both fantasy and science fiction as her favorite genre. Having written since high school, Duff never took it seriously 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, F​ade to Black,​was one of five finalists in the RMFW Colorado Gold Writing Contest and in 2015, Duff’s writing earned her the P​EN Award.​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.By day, Duff is a dedicated speech-language therapist at an inner city school district, a career she pursued much in part to her aunt who got her hooked on stories of the profession when Duff was younger. She is passionate about the work she does and regularly works to help those students that need it the most. Sue is a member of the R​ocky Mountain Fiction Writers and T​he Pikes Peak Writers.​ She calls Colorado home and when not saving the world one page at a time, she can be found walking her great dane, getting her hands dirty in her garden, or creating something delicious in her kitchen.
