Review: The Delusion: We All Have Our Demons by Laura Gallier


About the book:
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.

My thoughts:

The Delusion was an amazing read. I didn't expect to love it, but I could hardly put the book down. It made me think about things differently and was just so creepy! I loved the characters and liked that there really wasn't a heavy romance story (or at least romance wasn't the main focus). It was good for a change.

I could really feel for the MC. It would be so weird to be able to see things that no one else sees. No one believes you and yet you know what you see. It was interesting how the demons and spiritual warfare were written. I could actually believe the plot, as it wasn't far-fetched. Read the book and you will see what I mean.

All in all, I loved The Delusion and recommend it. If you are a fan of Frank Peretti or Ted Dekker, I think you will enjoy this book. I can't wait for the next one!

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. ~ Philippians 4:8
