Summary

Owen was a normal high school student with a great life. He had a beautiful girlfriend, played on the football team, and was surrounded by a group of great friends. That is, until he found a well on some abandoned land, and a man who offered him a drink of water that changed his life forever. Suddenly, Owen is seeing things that no one else sees: Shackles and chains that bind his family and friends, terrifying creatures that connect themselves to the cuffs attached at the end of the chains, and angelic beings who seem to have a power that even the demons cannot withstand.

Do the things Owen is seeing have anything to do with the suicide epidemic currently threatening to destroy his high school? How can this young man with no faith in the supernatural suddenly see invisible forces of terror provoking his fellow students' demise?

Similar to Frank Perretti's This Present Darkness and Piercing the Darkness, The Delusion explores spiritual warfare in a fresh way, reminding us that we all have our demons.

The Delusion by Laura Gallier

I just have to first start off by saying thank you to the author, maybe in the hopes that she might run into this review one day.
For quite sometime I had continualously been talking to my daughter about taken up audio books if she had no time to read books of her own interest.This is the first audio book my little one chose at the age of 14.To my amazement I strongly encourage her to focus on school & she is doing quite well, 4.0 GPA to be exact.I would above all encourage for to look to God.So I was blowing away when we were having a conversation & I honestly mentioned to my daughter, that I wish people would hear me out sometimes.The best way I could describe to my little one, that God had giving me many abilities & one of these abilities was that I could see saddness in their eyes but most of all the chains that were attached to them ,
That weighed them down so heavly.It sounded crazy I said but I could see what others could not.That's when my daughter hit me like it if we're with a ton of bricks , like that audio book where that boy could see chains on people.I was like what, yeah that audio book you said I had to chose one.It's says that I responded, my little one said yeah I heard some of it & read the summary.I was blowing away & I began listening to it, I sound delusional right. This story i could relate to it so much almost as if you write it just for me.I don't know everything I only know what I have been taught.What I have learned about coincidence, it is God at work.So I strongly recommend this book for anyone struggling to believe in A Creator or anyone doubting their faith in a world gone wrong.Keep in mind I said these things long before I read this book, for once upon a time I did not believe or could not see just like the main character Owen......Until one day I was giving living water to drink.Thank you to my daughter for I would not have come across this book if it were not for The Light you carry inside you.I love you always.

Wow!

So good! In general I love stories about spiritual warfare (Frank Peretti, Melanie Wells etc.), but I think this is my favorite book so far! Please get the second one on Audible! I picked this book less than a week after a 13 year old girl in our small community killed herself and a second attempted. I had no idea of the plot of this book so from the opening paragraph I was stunned. But I feel more energized to intercede for our middle and high schoolers now than ever before after reading this book. So good! Books like this can change the world

This was a REALLY good book to listen to!!!

The story doesn't lag at all. Each chapter is more compelling than the previous one and it does a beautiful job of explaining what is happening in schools today. This book may not be the fancy of others, but this author just gained another follower.

Fabulous!

I absolutely loved this book!. ❤️ My husband ended up listening to it, also. [I listened while I was doing my house and yard work]. The narrator did a great job. I only wish that book 2 was on Audible.. I purchased the hardcover novel, though.
