I was hired to proofread this book. Because I have proofread for Ms. Weis in the past, she probably suspected that I would also review, but it was not part of our agreement. I simply review every book I read. If you feel that my connection to the book makes my review suspect, so be it, but this is my honest review.
This book brought out the hate in me. I found one of the characters absolutely despicable and spent quite a bit of time wishing bad things would happen to him. I really didn't like how he treated Melinda at all. In spite of that, I found the sex scenes rather steamy.
Dark Perception felt almost like it was part mystery to me, feeding me small nibbles of information at a time, just enough to make me crave more without ever leaving me feeling sated. The tidbits of info provided built to a bigger picture, helping me in my quest to solve the mystery. Although I basically figured things out before the main character did, mostly, my knowledge was hard-won and satisfying. And there were still a couple of things that I did not see coming.
Overall I give Dark Perception 4 out of 5 stars because it kept me turning pages to see what would happen next. - Katie
