I began to live within my continuum of potential upon awakening to my own limitations of sight, sound and an altered understanding of everything previously believed to be known.

The world I thought I knew is nothing but a mask of shadows skulking through a never ending labyrinth of deception and lies. Are you who you really are or who they want you to think you are?

Start your review of Illuminarium (Soliloquy's Labyrinth #1)
Inventive and creative come to mind when thinking of Truth Devour’s Illuminarium. As the series name suggests, this is a journey through a labyrinth of feelings, questions, actions and reactions as the horrors one young boy faced touch the lives of those he has never met.

Truth Devour takes us through a beautiful redwood forest, through an ugly past filled with struggling poverty, hidden secrets and plot passages that become like living and breathing entities. Harper is a forensic psychologist w

A Great Start to a New Series!
This is the first chance that I've had to read anything by this author. I am so glad that I picked this one up, honestly I was originally drawn in by the beautiful and unique cover, and in this case judging a book by it's cover really worked out for me. I am a big fan of the supernatural, and urban fantasy, this book also has the elements of a thriller and I absolutely love this book, the author's writing is amazing, with a very unique voice, and is so totally descr

If you like supernatural and thrillers this is the one for you. The author is well read and innovative and the books tells you that. This book is about Harper and her spiritual transformation if you want to call it that way. Its a bit disturbing to start with(definitely not for the faint hearted) but then Harper keeps you engaged till the end. I cant wait to read the second book of the series to take me on a another journey of Good vs Evil.

Wow! What a cover and what a book! Illuminarium: Book 1 - Soliloquy's Labyrinth Series by Truth Devour is a book that goes beyond a page turner. This book had me glued to it and I didn't want to put it down: I had to know what was next and where it was going. This fictional, urban legion type book is not for the faint of heart as it does contain some gore and adult subject matter but even the swearing is done in a way that it is somewhat what you would expect in the situation and is realistic fo ...more

Illuminarium, written under the pseudonym Truth Devour, is one of this author's many successes. This is the first release in what the author has named Soliloquy's Labyrinth Series.

In summary, the main character, Harper, seems to be the center of a universal war for balance that spans multiple life times. We learn along the way that she is the tipping point for all to come. Called the Key of Wills, she quote, "Is a saint and a sinner,

Imagine walking along a path, only to find that this path is going to change your life forever. That is exactly what happened to Harper while hiking in the woods. She happened upon a mysterious owl who led her to an even more mysterious book, a memoir of a young boy. Harper quickly feels this book was meant for her and it touches the very heart of her soul. She decides t

“Illuminarium (book 1 in the Soliloquy Labyrinth Series)," by Truth Devour, is a fantasy/paranormal novel with a thought-provoking philosophical theme.

With descriptive, philosophical writing, Devour manages to draw the reader into the main character’s mind as she navigates a variety of abstract concepts and ideas ...more

*I received this book in exchange for an honest review.* Talk about a thought provoking novel to make one reflect on their life. Truth Devour’s Illuminarium is not one of those books where you can sit down and finish it in one sitting. As you hear the story of York’s life and watch Harper’s perspective on life changes as she continues to learn more about the terrible things that happened to York, breaks from reading to truly comprehend the beautiful madness that is this book. The fantasy element ...more

The story took me on a fantastical journey where the adventure into paranormal circumstances became plausible. Truth Devour's take on reincarnation with the added layers of intrigue held me guessing where the series may lead across the next four books.

It is rare to have me so captivated that I felt the scenes playing out before me as the words fell off the page with such vivid imagery. I could smell the lavender in the fields. There was a distinct joy in not knowing where Devour was taking us wi

This book starts with Harper who is on a vacation and hiking through the woods, when she sees an owl. She sees the owl as a sign and follows it to where a book is hidden. She sits down to enjoy a book that seems to be written about a young boys life many years prior. This is where the adventure begins.

This is a great fantasy book that takes you through many lives, both past and present, and how we are all intertwined. It is written from Harper's point of view, so you really get inside her head

I must say I really loved reading this book. The setting is so clear, and the plot so unique. I think my favorite part of the book was the characters. The author managed to skilfully bring life to all the characters in the book. I absolutely loved Harper, the main character. She was such a tower of feminine strength, and determination. This book had really exactly what one would look for in a great book. There was heartbreak, friendship, sadness, all these emotions that made these characters so ...more

In a world where nothing is what it seems. We are drawn into a world where things are hidden in the shadow and the truth is hidden by lies.

An adventure within each other as you are not quite sure what it is real or is it all an alter ego taking place at times. Can it be all just all illusion that we make to appear?

An engrossing read as we are never quite sure who will pop up next like the appearance of the dairy which most see as empty. Truth and fiction collide into a worl

The Illuminarium is book 1 in new series by author Truth Devour. The book is well written and the lead character does draw you into the story. I've not made my mind up whether she is mental unstable or if the events are actually happening. It's a good read.
