5.0 out of 5 starsBlood and Illusion: Paranormal Romance--With a... Ann Gimpel
Reviewed in the United States on August 22, 2016
Last book in the Coven Enforcers series it can be read as a stand alone but to really know what is happening I would recommend reading the series in order. Sam, was born in Austria and now work's for the Coven as one of their enforcers, he and some of the other enforcers have gone to San Francisco to help protect a group of Non-Coven witches who are being threatened by Dark Magick. The Enforcers are to bring these witches back to the Coven in Salt Lake City safely. Isla is head of this group of Non-Coven witches and Sam and her get off to a rocky start. Will Sam and the other Enforcers be able to keep her group safe? Who is after Isla’s group and why? I was gifted a copy for an honest review.
This is the best of the three Coven Enforcers books. The problems I noted with the first two (characters needed more development and unnecessary use of crude language) have been fixed in this book, leading to a more cohesive story. The plot in this book is more finely developed, as well. I liked the twist regarding Aethelred, Luke's rescuer and mentor from book 1; I didn't see that one coming. I won't say more and spoil the surprise. I'd also like to commend the editing. I found only one place where I was thrown off my reading rythem, and it looked like a partial edit of the sentence that just wasn't completed. Kudos to Mrs. Gimpel for strengthening her writing as the series progressed.

I have submitted this review after listening to the audiobooks of this series. The enforcers are called to the aid of a coven of witches, in San Francisco, but those that are attacking are not what they seem. The group decide to join up with the other coven, and do a cross country trek, hounded by evil all the way. Due to inner turmoil, one witch is loathe to reconnect with the coven that had treated her dastardly years before. The solution also brings another that had been hiding in plain sight, but when things go awry, the illusion is abandoned and those that need to know are shocked at who are two of their companions.
Review for Ann Gimpel’s Coven Enforcers series (1-3) I volunteered to read these for an honest review Blood and Magic (book 1) Most all of the books I have read on this subject have either taken place in the current time period or back into medieval history – this was “new” for me as the time period was of stage coaches and the “old west”. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and could not put it down – with all the characters there is certainly room for more books to follow – Thank you Ann – definitely on my recommend list Blood and Sorcery (book 2) And the story continues – the characters keep growing along with the story – this book flows easily from book 1 with NO cliffhangers – but – I definitely recommend reading the books in order just to know the characters and the roles they play – another definite recommend
Blood and Illusion (book 3) Hopefully not the last for this series – there definitely is room to grow since there are many more characters who need to have their stories told and hopefully (hint, hint to Ann) their stories will be told sometime in the future. I definitely recommend this series there are no cliffhangers in any of the books but again just to know the characters and the roles they play I do suggest reading in order so you get to know them I definitely recommend this series of 3 books – thumbs up to Ann
Title: Blood and Illusion Series: Coven Enforcers Note: This is the third book in the series, book 3, but is a stand alone. Author: Ann Gimpel
This is my review of Blood and Illusion, book 3 in The Coven Enforcers Series. I got this book in the series free in exchange for an honest review. This is the continuation of a great world and it can be read as a standalone with no cliffhanger ending, it is the whole story. Be warned though you will not want to stop with just this one book and you will want to know the whole story from start to beginning. This book mentions other characters from the other books and it may just been in passing but you may find yourself wanting to know more about the other couples. Despite the length it does move at a good pace and keeps you interested. In fact I moved through the book so fast I was sad when it was over. :(
This is the story of Isla who is a very independent with who does not join the Coven and instead has her own little group in San Francisco. The problem is dark mages are now after her group requiring her to need help. Enter Sam who is one of the Coven Enforcers. Even though Isla and her witches are not his Coven he is still sworn to protect all witches from evil even if the run their own group. It isn't long before the sparks start between Sam and Isla and it does not take Sam much time to fall in love with her but she is at danger and he must help her and her witches first. If they survive will he manage to convince her that she belongs with him? First he has to bring these witches back to the Coven in Salt Lake City safely where they were to meet up with the Coven's wagon train, something that will not be easy at all. At first Sam is pretty harsh in how he views Isla and thinks that she is too independent, proud, and outspoken but that pulls him to her even more. Isla on the other hand fins Sam to be alpha, aggravating, pig headed, conceited and full of himself and despite being interested in him she is not interested in giving any man power over her. These too make a dynamite couple and fight their way through evil in order to get to the answer of who is after the non-Coven aligned witches. This book helps tie everything together and give you the answers to the questions you have been asking from the past 2 books.
