Webs of Perception: Reviews
The Webs series are ALWAYS great books!
I have always enjoyed the Webs series books! I like the short chapters and interesting details. From the moment I began the book I knew that I would enjoy the experience. The twins, Callie and Marnie are on an adventure of a lifetime from a rouge wave to having a new appreciation of their relationship. I always enjoy Darlene’s style that leaves me wondering what’s next. This family group is ever evolving. The mystery of who was where during the event of the rouge wave leads to confusions and finally new discoveries of each other. Darlene brings in the personal lives of the characters who are not only dealing with the experience of the twins but also their own pressing issues and life changes. I will miss her books and her characters. But she has brought enjoyment and great reading to my my life! Be sure to get this book and you will find it enjoyable and intriguing.
I received this book for an exchange of my honest review. The bottom line: YES, I would recommend this book to a friend!

When you have been a fan for so long of Darlene Quinn’s web series it is only natural that you want to read her last book on the series. As per usual it is a pleasure to get hold of one of her books. This time she has published “Webs of Perception” and it is being launched on the 11th November this year 2018. I have just finished reading it and I am as per usual impressed with the plot and the story line but most of all with the way the author explains it to us so we can easily follow a muddled up plot that could otherwise drive the reader crazy.
Exquisite writing and a complicated plot make it a page turner from the very first chapter. Darlene is a very well researched author who writes very true to life circumstances. The characters are life like, and not just left to the imagination, they seem so real you think you know them! Their expressions and their feelings are so well explained by the author that you can visualise who they are and what they even look like.
Every author tends to put real situations into a story by explaining and using their personal experiences or those of their family and friends which explains why the characters are so true to life, vivid and believable. In this series, the author expertly gives us an insight into each of the main character’s way of life. Their conversations and even situations are very believable in these chaotic circumstances. There is no melodrama even with the upheaval the twins cause in the family. The parents seem very stable and well able to cope in every disturbing situation, teaching us all a lesson of how we should perceive life and its turmoils! It made me think of an English proverb: “If you worry you die, if you don’t worry, you still die. So why worry?” A lesson to be learnt in given situations.
The back cover review states that one twin has amnesia and the other is lost at sea. This is true information about the story line but I do not agree with the statement that follows “OR HAS SHE?” meaning, has she been lost at sea, or maybe not! I think this three words should be omitted as it gives away too much of the plot…you know she will be found.
All in all, an entertaining read, a well written story and a great conclusion to the WEB series.
Undoubtedly a recommended read.

We picked the book up and on Page 1, immediately, author Darlene Quinn, thrusts us into a shocking tragedy! A badly wounded young girl is suffering from something she cannot identify! She also finds she doesn’t know what has happened, where she is, and the most frightening revelation, she doesn’t know her name! We are drawn into a complicated situation and left with scanty details to perceive the happenstance that surrounds our victim and us as readers.
As the story unfolds, we know that a rogue wave has hit a ship at sea that carried the Taylor twins, Marnie and Callie: one is critically injured and the other missing in action! Quinn, master of twists and turns, throws details, hunches, relationships and various possibilities into the story that surges ahead as it plays out. In concern for each twin and their family, we feverishly turn pages to discover the fate of these engaging characters.
By the time we begin to solve the mystery, the whole Taylor clan has entered into this concluding tale, the 6th in the Quinn’s Web series. With skill and cleverness, she brings us to a satisfying last look at the fascinating Taylor family! (Or, is it?)
Pick up Webs of Perception and read it; you will not be disappointed! I could not put it down!
(WARNING! If this is your 1st Quinn book, you MAY be forced to read them all!)

Thoroughly enjoyed reading the latest and last installment in the “Webs” series. Author Darlene Quinn once again thoughtfully brought all of her characters to vibrant life and filled us in on their lives since the last book. Callie and Marnie’s adventures at sea and travel in England and France and how their family deals with the possible loss of one of the twins proves engaging and highly entertaining.

Having been a fan of Darlene’s work for some years now. This last installment of the web series had me in its grasp from start to finish. vividly creating pictures with her words i can completely understand why the series could have been adapted into a movie or even a TV series. i think it still should.
Webs of Perception is a page turning suspense story that I could not put down until I finished it a day and a half later! I would highly recommend it as a great read.
This is the best book of this series. The plot was exciting, the suspense was intriguing, and I could hardly put it down.
