Waiting on Wednesday #68: Illusive by Emily Lloyd-Jones

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature created by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This is where you showcase an upcoming release you're anxiously awaiting!

This week, I'm waiting on:
Illusive by Emily Lloyd-Jones.

Expected Publication: July 15, 2014.
by: Little, Brown BYR.

Goodreads Synopsis:
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 the government that could cost them their lives.

Why I'm excited:
Not only does that synopsis sound so cool (super-criminals that blur the lines between good and bad? Love it), I've also heard some really great stuff about this one so I'm definitely excited to get my hands on it!

What are you waiting on this week?


  1. I have this one on-order, but I think I forgot to add it to my TBR list. Thanks for the reminder! ~Megan

  2. The X-Men meets Oceans 11....sounds like a winner to me! I haven't heard of this one before so I'm glad you chose it this week!
