Soon, Elusion® will change the world and life as we know it.
A new technology called Elusion is sweeping the country. An app, visor and wristband will virtually transport you to an exotic destination where adventure can be pursued without the complications—or consequences—of real life.
Regan is an Elusion insider. Or at least she used to be. Her father invented the program, and her best friend, Patrick, heir to the tech giant Orexis, is about to release it nationwide. But ever since her father’s unexpected death, Regan can’t bear to Escape, especially since waking up from the dream means crashing back to her grim reality.
Still, when there are rumors of trouble in Elusion—accusations that it’s addictive and dangerous— Regan is determined to defend it. But the critics of Elusion come from surprising sources, including Josh, the handsome skeptic with his own personal stakes. As Regan investigates the claims, she discovers a disturbing web of secrets. She will soon have to choose between love and loyalty…a decision that will affect the lives of millions.
Suspense, thrills, and romance fuel this near-future story about the seductive nature of a perfect virtual world, and how far one girl will go to uncover the truth behind the illusions.
Why do I want to read Elusion?
LOOK. AT. THAT COVER!
OMG I just wanna hold it, and hug it, and stroke it! I mean that has got to be one of the most gorgeous book covers I have ever seen. I am in love with it... and I may be drooling a little over it!
You mean I have to give a reason more than the cover?
DYSTOPIA! I love dystopia and while some dystopia novels can sometimes feel like a repeat of what has already been done from the gorgeous unique... and did I mention drooworthy? cover the blurb just pulled me right in and had me wanting to read this book... like right now.
