Publisher's Summary

He's a part-time Imperial hero, full-time thief. Lucky for him, she's not that kind of Inquisitor.

Illusionist and novice spy Alan Campbell just got out of one relationship only to have another woman walk into his life: the Lady Camilla Favonius of the Imperial Inquisition. He's close to broke and left without orders. She wears plate armor in the field and around her heart. Is the lady just what the Plague Doctor ordered, or will his efforts to get a job and woo her only leave him jaded...or dead?

From the city of Harrowick to the perilous depths of the Grass Sea, Alan will have to fight a corrupt syndicate, earn his place in the Thieves' Union, and face down monsters and the risen dead if he wants a happy ending. All the while, in the real world, Robert Osmark is as close to losing his company as he's ever been, and both Sandra and Jeff will have to pick sides once the battle lines are drawn.

Brazen thievery, Death caught off-balance, the Dawn Elves' dirty secret, and unexpected love combine in Inquisitor's Foil, the third book of the Illusionist series.

nowhere near as good as former books

somehow the writer stopped using the game mechanics, and started writing more drama into the book.... whereas it would have been fun to hear more about our protagonist learning about alchemy.... suddenly he is banned from it within game mechanics.... and then our protagonist goes off on strange tangents....
take that into consideration with the abrupt and rapid relationship that the character gets into that seems to be not only toxic, but also an afterthought of the writer...
and the ending of the book was extremely rushed going from everything going good... to sudden deep relationship with a woman.. that he basically gives up everything he has worked for to continue the relationship...
I will try the next book if it is available... hopefully this was just a bad episode...
and once again the reader tends to think whispers are voices... making it extremely hard to hear at times

Recomend the book

I’m about to start work so let me be quick. This was a good book with a lot of continuation of the major plot lines in the previous two. It helps to further characterize charecters who appear more here than in the main series, and helps to provide further context of the next stages of the main series.
I definetly recomend this book, it is best enjoyed with some context from the main series, but I may have overstepped by bounds a little with the last book and the side quests, both of which are direct follow ups in some ways. Up to reader descression.
Based on context I bet that the next book I’m reading, the firebrand series, will be set near this time so I read in a good chronological order if not the best reading order period. I guess that’s good to know, maybe I should have asked more for rescimendations on order, lol.

I think the illusionist is the most interesting and does the most world building of the VGO storyline. can't wait for the next entry. its o
so cool to see characters from the other stories in a different light .

Fleshed out

This book fleshed out Alan’s story more than it seems... he is an illusionist and the book reflects that. No power leveling, no top tier beast tearing through mobs; an honest story of a traveler starting a new life in Viridian. They didn’t close off the alchemist subclass, they offered an opportunity to flesh out the story and admit new quests, as is the overminds’ chief objectives (not including Thanatos, who was defective from the start)

Another Solid Entry

This was another solid entry into VGO's story. The audio performance was once again on point. I am very interested in seeing where Alan's story takes him as we grow closer to the events in the other books.

Great backstory to the series

I was wondering if the series would be fleshed out after the initial release. I’m very glad it did as there were a lot of loose ends.

I also enjoy the nuances of the character personas. It humanizes them. Often stories overlook this element of the story telling process.

I look forward to hearing the rest of the stories in this series.
