The X-Men meets Ocean's Eleven in this action-packed sequel to Illusive. You don't belong with us. These are the words that echo through the minds of all immune Americans--those suffering the so-called adverse effects of an experimental vaccine, including perfect recall, body manipulation, telepathy, precognition, levitation, mind-control, and the ability to change one's appearance at will. When immune individuals begin to disappear--in great numbers, but seemingly at random-fear and tension mount, and unrest begins to brew across the country. Through separate channels, super-powered teenagers Ciere, Daniel, and Devon find themselves on the case; super criminals and government agents working side-by-side. It's an effort that will ultimately define them all, for better or for worse. "An action-packed adventure with a charming criminal crew."-Kirkus Reviews on Illusive

MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for Deceptive "Shootouts, betrayal, undercover ops, and a determined hitman with his sights on Ciere keep the adrenaline pumping, all while the teens do some serious soul searching...[Deceptive is] more political in its focus, zeroing in on human rights; readers attracted to action and government conspiracy will be easily engrossed and walk away hoping for more." Booklist"
Praise for Illusive * "Boasting a complex plot, heart-stopping bursts of action, and questions regarding human nature, Lloyd-Jones' thought-provoking, multifaceted narrative neatly sidesteps categorization as just another superhero or dystopian novel--though fans of both will be drawn to the material and be pleasantly surprised. An impressive debut guaranteed to disappear from the shelves before your very eyes." Booklist (starred review)"
"Superpowered teens screw up repeatedly in this crime-caper debut...[Entertaining] and unpredictable. Readers may also want to check out the Wild Card series edited by George R.R. Martin for a similar take on superpowers. An action-packed adventure with a charming criminal crew." Kirkus Reviews"
"Illusive starts off at a sprint, and the pace never falters. With razor-sharp prose, and richly drawn characters, I was captivated beginning to end." Jennifer Rush, author of the Altered series"
"Lloyd-Jones deftly weaves several plot strands, using flashbacks to impart background information. Snappy dialogue and harrowing action scenes move the twisting plot along and maintain suspense throughout...A must-read for fans of intrigue and superpowered villains." School Library Journal"
"Multiple plot twists and the present-tense narrative heighten Ciere, Devon, and Daniel's sense of paranoia as they struggle to survive in a world in which it is often difficult to tell the good guys from the bad guys. A thrilling read." SLJ"
