Welcome to my favorite Feature:
“Waiting on” Wednesday is hosted weekly by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
Illusive by Emily Lloyd-Jones
Expected publication: July 15th 2014 by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
The X-Men meets Ocean’s Eleven in this edge-of-your-seat sci-fi adventure about a band of “super” criminals.
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 he government that could cost them their lives.
Uhm.. X-Men meets Oceans Eleven? YES, yes and double yes! I love the sound of this one. X-Men like powers is always something I truly enjoy. Also, I love the sound of good and bad blurred together. I like it when you have to figure out the fine grey lines in between! Can’t wait!
