Etherworld by Claudia Gabel & Cheryl Klam Review @harperteen @claudiagabel @Cherylklam

Etherworld (Elusion, #2)
Release date: March 31, 2015
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Genre: YA Sci-Fi/Romance
Series: Elusion #2

In this sequel to Elusion, three teens fight a virtual reality program that threatens to destroy their minds. Dangerous secrets and lies add up to a thrilling futuristic fantasy with an Inception-inspired twist.

Elusion was hailed as an exciting leap in technology—until users began to disappear amid rumors of addiction. Regan’s search for the truth led her and her new love interest, Josh, to Etherworld. Etherworld is a dimension hidden deep beyond Elusion's firewall, where players can hide, and ultimately fight back. Regan's father and others are here working to destroy Etherworld, but the longer they stay the less likely they'll be able to return to the real world alive.

Escape means attacking Elusion from within the program. It's dangerous and it’s a puzzle. And even if they manage it, how will they be able to stop Orexis from distributing Elusion to the masses when the people who run it are corrupt?

My Rating: 5 Roses

An absolutely brilliant sequel that was even better than the first, Etherworld was simply fantastic YA read. It had more secrets, thrills, betrayals, and it was all wonderful.

Regan was just lovely. She was an even stronger character in this book, determined to expose the truth and save the people who were being harmed by Elusion. She proved herself clever and definitely a force to be reckoned with. She was great and I really liked her.

Josh was wonderful as well. Just as determined to end Elusion and be there for Regan every step of the way. He was a sweetie and I really liked him as well.

The romance was low key but it was still clear how much Regan and Josh cared for each other. I was glad to see the ending that they got.

The plot was fast paced and I was totally hooked the entire way through. There were plenty of new secrets, a few surprises, and plenty of thrills that kept me on the edge of my seat. The stakes were all upped and it was a wild ride all the way through. I really enjoyed the story and the ending was perfect.

Etherworld was a brilliant YA read that was full of twists, turns, and plenty of secrets. It was wonderful and I totally loved it. YA lovers, this is a book you won't want to miss.
