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.

I love a good suspense novel and The Delusion does not disappoint. From the moment the story began, I was sucked in and could not put it down until I had finished it. The author does a fabulous job of keeping readers on the edge of their seat. I think what made this story most interesting was the feel of reality despite the fact that this is a fiction read. What would you do if you knew the truth, but no one would believe you? Our main character must reach his own conclusion to the answer to this question. I encourage you to read it and enjoy its finale for yourself.
