Book Club x Illusive


When the MK virus swept across the planet, a vaccine was created to stop the epidemic, but it came with some unexpected side effects. A small percentage of the population developed superhero-like powers. Seventeen-year-old Ciere Giba has the handy ability to change her appearance at will. She’s what’s known as an illusionist… She’s also a thief.

After a robbery goes awry, Ciere must team up with a group of fellow super-powered criminals on another job that most would consider too reckless. The formula for the vaccine that gave them their abilities was supposedly destroyed years ago. But what if it wasn’t?

The lines between good and bad, us and them, and freedom and entrapment are blurred as Ciere and the rest of her crew become embroiled in a deadly race against the government that could cost them their lives.

The first book up this month is Illusive, a sci-fi adventure novel by Emily Lloyd-Jones (Amazon, iBooks, Google Play). Super powers, criminals, and a deadly virus. All of us were intrigued by the plot, and with a tagline that compares the story to X-Men and Ocean’s Eleven, we couldn’t pass it up.

We’ll have a podcast up on the 1st of October and a new book announced then as well. We can’t wait to see what you all have to say about Illusive at the end of the month, and we’re excited to follow the online discussion along with it!
