Illusive Intrusion

Written by Tomasz Chrusciel

Genre: Mystery & Suspense; Women's Fiction, Action & Adventure

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.

Here's what

a Fan said

An intelligent read

This was an impressive read from a debut author. While it's definitely a mystery/thriller/romance, it doesn't really fit into any "one" category, nor does it offer contrived plot lines or cookie-cutter characters. I found the interactions between Goyo and the two sisters - and even Elizabeth - to be interesting and dynamic.

The dialogue was witty and really pulls you into the scene. The author did a particular good job at choosing the setting for something equal parts exotic, dark, and thrilling. It feels like everything is just sort of "random" but wait until you get to the end. It will all make sense!

Don't expect an easy read, though "Illusive Intrusion" certainly offers an exciting adventure. The author doesn't hold your hand; you have to really pay attention while reading. The book is intelligently written, with many clues and even backstories left to the reader to figure out.

While it may not be for everyone, it was refreshing to read something "new" (ahem, original) and especially from a debut author. The book was intriguing, to say the least. I look forward to reading more from this new author.
