Justine Jones faces her ultimate enemy: herself.

Book Three in The Disillusionist Trilogy

In an attempt to put her unhappy past behind her, Justine Jones throws herself into nursing school and planning her wedding to Otto Sanchez, the man of her dreams. But something is off. Random details aren't adding up...and is it her imagination, or are her friends and fiancé keeping secrets from her? And what's with the strange sense of unease, and her odd new headaches?

Justine tries to stay upbeat as Midcity cowers under martial law, sleepwalking cannibals, and a mysterious rash of paranormal copycat violence, but her search for answers leads her into the most dangerous mind game yet.

With the help of unlikely allies, including her paranoid dad and best frenemy Simon, Justine fights her ultimate foe...and unravels the most startling mystery of all.

Warning: This book contains high-speed rollerblade chases, a mysterious green dashboard ornament, a father of the bride in full hazmat gear and a delicious kebab.

Weeks since last free of body guards Otto has assigned to "protect" her, Justine is with Simon eluding her protectors and looking for her car. Justine only has two Disillusionist friends left, Simon (hard to believe) and Shelby, as the others have all left on their own missions and a few left with Packard... after what Packard did (at end of Double Cross). Justine has a full life; along with not zinging in sixty-two days and counting, she's going to nursing school, doing Mid-city things with Otto, and planning her wedding. Although she has a feeling the world ended the day of the shooting, but she is doing her best to carry on... until things start to come to her attention. I listened to this book as I couldn't wait for it to come into print, and I will purchase the print version as well to complete my set here. I'm not much of a book listener, and this was my first experience. I do think I prefer to read as I get to reread sections as I want when I like them or feel there is more to the words than first interpreted. But the narrator did a very fine job with the characters. She had different voices for the characters, some of which I would never have hear like she did but they worked. The starts of this book gives us a reminder of Justine as we first found her in Mind Games, the hypochondriac version of Justine. It was so different seeing her this way after evolving with her in Double Cross, but was wonderful in tying the books together and a reminder where we started before the bang of an ending here. As Justine is one to have things come at her timing, things do surface and Justine returns to the Justine we all remember so fondly and loved in Double Cross. But in the end Justine evolves even further! Amazing! I loved that. The characters, we get a full cast here again as we easy back into the world. We get our Simon, lol Simon. He makes me laugh with his clothing selections and his desire to make Justine do things she doesn't want to do - always a bet for him to make, even if it's with himself. We see Shelby, who is still hurting. But we get to meet Justine's dad in this book as well! I LOVE her dad. He fits the need we have to know Justine's history and sooo makes the book in the last half. He really is a great person, even with his own phobia. Oh, did I not mention Otto and... Packard? Well, they are here too. But I'm not mentioning them as I might give something away I don't want to. ;) I will say... it seems to Justine all her friends and lover have secrets they are keeping and working on, without Justine. The world in Midcity is still a mess. We have the cannibal sleepwalkers controlled by the dream invader then there are copy cat murders showing up, ones copying the murders of the highcaps Otto has put away. The streets are dangerous and there is a curfew put into affect by Otto. We do get to spend some time in the Tangle, which I find interesting since reading the short story in Wild & Steamy. I love this tangled mess as it seems a world all its own. This book was wonderfully done and I'm so grateful Carolyn found someone to print it. It's the conclusion to her Disillusionist trilogy and one that ties all together wonderfully.

It continues from book two. Even though I was angry at Otto for taking away her memory of the one day and her choice, I found I was unable to actually hate Otto. I felt sad for him and wished that he could have had his own happy ending in a different book. I love that Justine worked through her memory being erased and loved that she and Packard end up together. I hope everyone enjoys this book like I did.
