Waiting on Wednesday #13

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we are highly anticipating. This week’s pre-publication “can’t-wait to-read” selection is: Elusion by: Claudia Gabel and Cheryl Klam

ElusionSummary (via Goodreads):
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 Am I Waiting on Elusion?
First…look at that cover. It is so beautiful I couldn’t resist wanting to read this one. I love the exploration of virtual reality being addicting/dangerous. I feel like there is a lot to explore on the topic and look forward to seeing what Gabel and Klam do with this book.

    That cover is just so damn gorgeous. And the virtual reality aspect is kind of fascinating to me. I liked how it was handled in Under the Never Sky, and I’d like to see it expanded upon in this book. Great pick!
