Etherworld (Elusion, #2)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
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?

This was a good end to the story!

Josh and Regan fought really hard in this book to rescue those they loved, and other people stuck in Elusion, and it was noble the way they never gave up, even when things got hard. That being said, it was easy to see why people would think that Regan was suffering from nanopsychosis when she was talking about seeing her dead father!

The storyline in this was good and revolved around rescuing Regan’s father, and destroying Elusion. I liked the twists that we got with regards to Elusion, I really wouldn’t have guessed them, although some of the explanations about things seemed a little hard to grasp for me. I guess I just don’t know enough about computer stuff!
There was some romance, but it was only a small part of the story, and it didn’t really interest me to be honest. Regan and Josh’s relationship did progress and became more physical though.

The ending to this was satisfying, and I liked that we didn’t have to wait for a third book to finish the series!
6.5 out of 10
