A magical adventure set in Victorian London
In the final installment of the Illusionist trilogy, magician Tom and his beloved Mina come face to face with their most dangerous enemies, who come from another time.
Tom and Mina’s names look good next to each other on the poster for an upcoming magic show. Behind the stage curtain, Mina wonders whether she will ever be able to love Tom or whether they are destined to be nothing more than friends. A trip to London offers old world adventures. Tom delves into a riddle that is tied up to his own past. One particular chain of events triggers him and, as a result, an old enemy gets back in touch.
For the last time Tom and Mina join forces for battle, along with the trusty Tin Soldier, Tom’s mechanical lookalike.
