Nobody expects to stare death in the face only to find out your entire life is a lie.
Rescued by Salco, marketing executive Becky finds herself in an unknown magical world filled with happy people that try to forget their land is on the brink of destruction.

“This cover was designed by the fabulous Sharon Lipman Fantasia designs. We worked together until she achieved perfection.”
The film Lord of the Rings inspired me to write Illusional Reality. In fact, I came out of the cinema and by the time I arrived home (40 minutes) later, book one was completed in my head, the synopsis on paper, and explain with OTT excitement to my husband.
It didn’t take long to write the novel but many things changed before I was happy with the final MS. You see, once you start writing a book, and you’re in the “Zone” the characters take over and tell you where they want to go. And if you need to sleep, you have to do what they say. Many authors will agree with me on that.
At the time I wrote Illusional Reality there were no e-books, so I submitted the MS to agents and publishers hoping for the big break and I knew it was the right time to get my book/s
out. Fantasy films were hitting the big screen and people were either Potter mad or buying their own copies of L.O.T.R trilogy. But I was rejected. Then life got in the way and I put the book/s in a folder and then in the office cabinet and it stayed there for TEN years.
I promised my readers a new book maybe my last, and I have three projects on the go, but no interest to continue writing them at the time. So Illusional Reality was dusted off and here we are. 🙂
Illusional Reality is available to pre-order, so please do. You will love the characters, the plot, the twists, and the emotional ending… Shhhh.
“Illusional Reality was definitely one huge ride. The story is very unique; you won’t find any stereotypical fantasy ploys in this novel! Karina Kantas has managed to do the almost impossible by weaving a thrilling story with romantic twists that will have you turning pages all night, and most probably give you quite a large book hangover.”
“Illusional Reality is filled with intrigue, deception, and danger. The story holds your attention as the events play out. I identified with the characters, loving the facets of their personalities. Well done. I loved the book.”
