    1. (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to author Lauren Eckhardt.)“Remember: Three meals, three drinks and three Remedy doses a day keeps your life healthy and in play.”This was an interesting dystopian story that left me anticipating the next book in the series!I liked Evie, although she did come across as slightly naïve. I think this was in actuality a good depiction of a girl raised to believe a certain thing though, and that her naivet [...]

    2. I received this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review.I have to be honest - I went into this book a little hesitantly, unsure what to expect, and a little nervous about reading a book I'd never heard of before, not even in passing.I come out of the book saying it was a fabulous book! I thoroughly enjoyed it once I got into it, and looking back, the beginning of the book makes a lot more sense now.The book opens in a sort of fog. As the book progresses, the fog lifts but [...]

    3. This review was originally posted on my blog CourtneysReadsMany people are under the misconception that a three star rating means I didn't like the book. That is certainly not the case. I enjoyed this novel very much. Now that that is out of the way, let's get started with the real stuff. The story follows Evangeline, a girl living in a society where there are no feelings, physical or emotional. As is the case with most dystopias, I could see elements here that were familiar from other stories. [...]

    4. I received this book in exchange for an honest review. I liked this book a lot more than I was expecting to. The overall feeling I got from the summary was that it was going to be a lot like The Giver. Yeah, I could see similarities, but there are always going to be similarities between books. I really enjoyed this book and I am so excited to read the next one. It ended in a cliffhanger, so I NEED to know what happens!Evangeline is a strong character. She is different than those around her. Ever [...]

    5. I was given this book on a read to review basis."IMPETUS IS TRYING TO MAKE PEOPLE INTO ROBOTS, MINDS WITHOUT HEARTSEY NEED TO BE STOPPED."I am always torn when writing a review of a book, as I do not wish to give away too much to would-be readers that may wish to partake on this journey with no expectations. With that said, if that is you, I recommend that you STOP reading my review, and READ THIS BOOK!!!!(view spoiler)[ The story follows Evangeline, a teenaged girl, as she awakens from the illu [...]

    6. *I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*Wow, just wow! This is an amazing book! I love when an author can come up with an original story. It's hard, I'm sure, there's millions of books out there. But Lauren Eckhardt did it. The idea that our feelings/emotions aren't fully our own anymore is both scary and fascinating. Maybe there wouldn't be jealousy, anger and other "bad" emotions but we also wouldn't know love and other beautiful things. But it makes for a intrigu [...]

    7. Oh my gosh, where to start? I loved this book. Evangeline lives in a community where they take these pills called the remedy and they rid them of all feelings. This community called Impetus basically rules over the people and makes all decisions for the people. But Evangeline has a friend who is different and causes her to think differently as well. This book was so detailed and the characters were people who I fell for. The story itself had me on the edge of my seat wanting more, in fact I fini [...]

    8. I loved this book. Evie is such a great character. There were times in public where i was crying or laughing out loud reading this. This is a must read and I cant wait for book two

    9. 'They want to keep us safe'The very beautiful Illinois author Lauren Eckhardt gained her Bachelor of Arts and MBA degrees and pursued a career in the human resources field before deciding to devote her energies to writing. She debuts with a well-scribed novel THE REMEDY FILES: ILLUSION and appears to be a writer to watch. As Lauren states, `I love to write the stories I dream about and the things that constantly go on inside of this mind of mine. My creativity can cause paranoia and the best out [...]

    10. The first thought that struck me as I was reading this book was how very similar it was to The Giver. Here are some parallels I drew from the first half of the book:- Evangeline lives in a community. (It is always referred to as 'the community', just like in The Giver)- The people of this community do not have deep feelings.- Feelings are suppressed by taking pills. (Similar to the movie, which has injections)- There is a Ceremony where all the teenagers are assigned their jobs and are finally c [...]

    11. *** I was gifted a copy of this book for review ***I truly enjoyed this exciting dystopian adventure. It reminded me of The Giver and Divergent and at times, Hunger Games. It was a perfect example of young adult dystopian. That being said, I knew what I was going to get with this book since I read so many young adult dystopian. There wasn't anything too earth shatteringly different from other books in this genre, but that was ok with me, because it was well written and just what I wanted!In this [...]

    12. I was given a copy of Illusion in exchange for an honest review. This review is also on my blog, bookblogbird.weebly, where I gave it a solid 9/10. I have rounded up for the purposes of ' five star system!Illusion is the first book of The Remedy Files by debut author Lauren Eckhardt. It is a young adult dystopian novel set in a community called Impetus, where all the self-destructive mistakes of humanity have been eradicated thanks to a chemical cure called The Remedy. People no longer feel, no [...]

    13. The Remedy Flies: Illusion by Lauren EchkardtI received a copy of this book to review and let me start by saying that I wish there was a 4.5 star rating option. But I will suffice by saying this was a very strong four stars for me.Young adult, dystopian. So popular right now, and unfortunately many of them get that 'I've heard this somewhere before' feel to them. NOT THIS ONE. I really have to commend Lauren on how well she stuck to her characters voice as Evangeline develops. I like the tension [...]
