The Delusion by Laura Gallier

Have you ever said things were fine when that wasn’t true?  Or you’ve had someone tell you everything’s great and you have a feeling they’re lying?  

In “The Delusion”, Gallier introduces us to Owen Edmonds who discovers a unique ability to see right through people.  He sees physical "chains" people carry with them such as anger, depression, and other feelings people aren’t always willing to acknowledge.  Owen naturally starts with the assumption he’s lost his mind and eventually comes to discover there are things at work that can’t be seen with the human eye.

Gallier’s writing will appeal to teens and adults.  She creates a great story that lovers of science fiction will enjoy.  But she also challenges people to stretch their minds and their faith, recognizing that much more goes on than we realize - something most Christians already believe.  I loved the story and took it as a reminder to try to see people through God’s eyes.  We don’t know what other people are going through.

My only critique is a bit too much happened toward the end.  It went in a couple directions that didn’t add to the story.  It did, however, set the book up for a sequel if she has one planned.  Fans of Frank Peretti will definitely enjoy “The Delusion”
