Illusive Intrusion

Written by Tomasz Chrusciel

Genre(s): Thriller, Psychological

Hatred can kill you from the inside, little by little. The only cure is to find the person who caused your misery.

Bianka is weary with her ordinary life in Dublin, and she desperately needs a vacation. When her younger sister, Niamh, receives an exciting job offer by surprise, Bianka eagerly accompanies her. Why wouldn’t she? Two weeks in a luxurious hotel on Gran Canaria is all Bianka desires. But what starts off as a fabulous and relaxing gateway turns to fear and awe when an inexplicable blackout engulfs the island—and the people.

Among the chaos, Bianka must struggle to keep her sanity because she might lose Niamh’s trust and friendship when her little sister falls for a ladies’ man, Goyo. Niamh feels secure with him around, but Bianka is torn inside because just when she decides that maybe she could trust him, he tells her about his mysterious friend, Elizabeth.

Although her name doesn’t sound familiar, the story of how Goyo met her is vivid, like a recurring delusion. It frightens Bianka even more than the awareness that a new wave of darkness might summon them again.

Bianka’s senses scream: YOU SHOULD NOT BE HERE! She will have to listen to her intuition or she will become another of Elizabeth’s unwitting puppets. 

Polly Rock's Review

I was drawn to this book by the cover, which is great by the way, and I love suspense. Even though it starts out slow, it picks up as you get into the story. I was swept up by the story and wanted to keep reading, once I got past the beginning. The characters seemed easy to like and understand, to a point.

Bianka is accompanying her younger sister, Niamh, to Gran Canaria for her first job because she a minor, and to take a holiday. A photographer, Goyo, is also sent to the island. Goyo is quite a womanizer, and Bianka seems to already him. But he doesn’t seem to know Bianka? The Goyo part of the story, and the mysterious Elizabeth had me lost a few times.

The story seemed to jump around, and some of the scenes were not believable. I was lost at the ending of the book and needed to go back a few pages to figure it out. There were also some typos.

All in all I did enjoy reading the story.
