If all this feels like a cross between Indiana Jones and Lord of the Rings, that's because it is.

Illusionary by Desiree Williams is a New Adult Fantasy novel (the main character is 19 years old, I am counting this as NA and no one can convince me otherwise!) about a young woman who trips and falls into another world. Literally. Once there, she meets a band of young boys, lead by a young man with unusual powers, and goes on a quest to save the 'Maker' of the world. Hilarity, sweetness and wonder ensue.

Away from her bureaucratic nightmare of a job, away from the freezing rain and drudgery of her city, away from all the people who don't believe in the fantastical. Her dreams are deceivingly realistic, and more and more she wishes they were real.
