Hi all, it’s Sarah!
This is the second and final book in the Elusion series. I was completely taken in by the first book in the series and couldn’t wait to read the next. Though, like with many of my other favorite fantasy novels, I had to wait for the sequel and got sidetracked by many other books. This book has been on my TBR list since 2014. I wish I would have read the previous book again before tackling this one, because I was lost for the first 25% of it. I enjoyed this book in the end, but it was a rough go at first.
This book picks up where the previous left off. Three teens have outsmarted the code and found their way to Etherworld. This part of Elusion should exist outside of its control, but the expert hackers that have found their way here are learning that Elusion is evolving and adapting. Regan is still determined to save her father from this alternate reality and stop the execs of Elusion from putting this alternate reality software on the market. However, in order to stop everything, Regan and her friends will need to work together to bring Elusion down.
This was told in the same vein as the first. It was just as action-packed. Once I found my way back into the story, I couldn’t stop reading. I thought that the ending was abrupt, but I can understand why it ended the way it did. I thought that the audiobook was just as awesome as the physical book. I think even more characters could be explored through this world in the future. It is very similar to Marie Lu’s Warcross.
