The Delusion by Laura Gallier Review
The Delusion: We All Have Our Demons (The Delusion Series)
by Laura Gallier
By March of Owen Edmonds's senior year, eleven students at Masonville High School have committed suicide. Amid the media frenzy and chaos, Owen tries to remain levelheaded--until he endures his own near-death experience and wakes to a distressing new reality.
The people around him suddenly appear to be shackled and enslaved.
Owen frantically seeks a cure for what he thinks are crazed hallucinations, but his delusions become even more sinister. An army of hideous, towering beings, unseen by anyone but Owen, are preying on his girlfriend and classmates, provoking them to self-destruction.
Owen eventually arrives at a mind-bending conclusion: he's not imagining the evil--everyone else is blind to its reality. He must warn and rescue those he loves . . . but this proves to be no simple mission. Will he be able to convince anyone to believe him before it's too late?
Owen's heart-pounding journey through truth and delusion will force him to reconsider everything he believes. He both longs for and fears the answers to questions that are quickly becoming too dangerous to ignore.

Cassandra's Review Q&A-
- What did you like about the book and why? The book is spiritual and faith based, but not so extreme that it would distract from the open supernatural completes that would attract teens or adults today.
- What did you not like about the book and why? It does give dimmer characters and the story is more of a think after reading, then a read into thinking plot.
- What did you learn? The author has a gift for putting the reader in the fray of the commotion in a way that will delight most readers.
- To whom would you recommend this book and why? Youth adults or older because of the topic and storyline, younger children might be frighten.
