Book Review - Dark Vision by Debbie Johnson

Amazon USA Amazon UK
 
Review by Suze
 
Lily can't touch anyone, because she's in agony when it happens. With one short touch she can see a person's past and future, which also means she sees their suffering and death. Because of this she hasn't touched anyone in years, she's never had the chance to find love and she also doesn't have many friends. She has one very good friend though, her name is Carmel and she understands Lily better than she understands herself sometimes. They're working for the same paper. When Lily's life changes drastically Carmel is by her side to support her.
 
Lily is much more special than she initially thought she was. When she touches someone who isn't completely human her worldview changes entirely and she finds out that there are plans for her future made by other people. Something important and huge is going on and Lily is the center of it. She has a difficult choice to make, a choice that will have consequences no matter what she decides. Will Lily be able to shoulder the responsibility she's been given and will she come to the right conclusion?
 
Dark Vision is a fantastic book about a woman who is more powerful than she thinks she is. Lily is a sweetheart. She can be a bit naïve and isn't experienced when it comes to men. She's also strong and resilient and has a big heart. She's kind and caring and she always follows her intuition even if it goes against instructions she's been given. I loved the way Debbie Johnson portrays her, Lily's thoughts are marvelous and I liked the dialogue a lot as well. Lily isn't afraid to speak her mind, she knows her good and bad features and she can be wonderfully childish and terribly mature at the same time. Debbie Johnson has a great sense of humor that's always present in the background.
 
Debbie Johnson has created a fantastic magical world. I loved reading about the versatile powers her creatures have. They are all different and they have a unique skill set and distinctive, creative character traits. Debbie Johnson has done a lot of research and it shows. She knows what she's writing about. I'm a big fan of stories about supernatural characters and I really enjoyed reading this one. I highly recommend Dark Vision and can't wait to read what will happen to Lily in Dark Touch, the second book about this fabulous woman.
