Before there was Twilight, there was Maggie Shayne. Maggie is one of the best writers of paranormal romance from the 90s. Twilight Illusions is part of her Wings Of Night series for Silhouette Shadows. These were some of the best vampire romances around at the time.

I found this one at Goodwill and snatched it up. It was definitely worth the 99 cents!

Damien is an ancient vampire and a recluse he's also 6000 years old, oh and he's a magician on the side!

Wowzas!

Shannon is a tough girl, looking to s

This is my favorite so far in the series. I really like Damian and his inner turmoil. I like how Maggie Shayne interpreted the legend of Gilgamesh and wove it in her story. Shannon is a strong protagonist and my heart went out to her.

Tredje boken i serien Vinslag i Natten, som denna gång handlar om Shannon och Damien, ännu en härlig kärlekshistoria skriven av Maggie Shayne

Actual Rating: 3.5

I read a review that someone wrote who had read the books in the series out of order and actually read the later books first. They said that if they had started with the earlier books they are not sure if they would have continued with the series.

I agree with this. I found the first two books a little bland (ok..a lot bland) and would have probably given up if they were not recommended to me by someone I trust. But I really enjoyed this book - number 3. Damien is by far my favo

This book was a good fast read. I started it then quit to read two other series; but when I got back to it, I enjoyed it. It is the story of Damian, a vampire over 6,000 years old and the dying woman he falls for. Shayne's novels are more old school vampire, can't see their reflections in mirrors, sleeps during the day, extraordinary senses and strength. Her novels are more romance with paranormal thrown in, but I still enjoyed the book.

Rispetto agli altri due, decisamente il migliore.
La storia è già più "vera", reale. Insomma la trama è più completa.
I personaggi, poi, sono finalmente vividi.
Non sono tutto un "pucci pucci, tesorino!".
Cosa che, sopratutto nel primo, si sentiva un pò troppo facendone risentire ovviamente tutta la storia.
Speriamo che anche il prossimo mantenga questi miglioramenti.

Book 3 in "Wings in the Night" vampire series. Original novel. "Wings in the Night" is a re-issue which contains the first 3 books in this series.

Twilight Illusions focuses on Shannon Mallory (a Chosen) and Damien Namatar (oldest living vampire). My all time favorite of any and all of the Wings in the Night series. Tamara, Eric, Rhiannan, and Roland all make appearances in this story

This is the 3rd book in the Wings of the Night Series I've read. After a minor bump in the road with book 2, this books returns to a likeable position. I like Damien probably the best out of the 3 heros. He's a tortured soul which gets me everytime. His heroine is more along the lines of what I prefer as well: spunky and loyal. Hopefully the 4th book will be just as good as this one.

I love Maggie's books. Have only read 4 of them but will most certainly be keeping my eyes out for the rest. Please please please re-release more.
Sexual, lots of action and just love her vampires. True vampires. No sparklies. LOL

This is my favorite installment in my favorite vampire series. So often when I pick up these stories, I find myself getting caught up in the implications of what the longer lived characters went through before becoming the romantic hero or heroine (what did Eric and Roland do all through the 1800s? How did Rhiannon get out of Egypt?), and Damien, who arguably answers the question of where vampires came from, raises more questions than anyone. I love combing through references to his past and try ...more

Maggie proved why she is one of my favorite authors when she wrote Twilight Illusions. I love Damien. Who wouldn't? He's a sexy magician. Shannon is a strong woman and I love that. She's determined to be independent. What she doesn't realize is she does need to be protected and Damien is perfect for that. I will be honest and tell you that I've read this series a few times and I feel more than qualified to recommend this book as a five star. Twilight Illusions is well written, it weaves the stor ...more

Enjoyable at the time, forgettable afterwards. I went through this entire series and it doesn't really stick in my mind other than it was an enjoyable read when there were little PNR available and few vampires for me to find. How did I ever find books pre-GR?
