“Let me start by saying that I usually do not read thrillers and mystery books, I’m more into romance then suspense, but I absolutely loved this book.
The story is about a sillier killer who is going after beautiful women and strong female police detective that is doing all it takes to save the next victim. It has everything in it, strong women, interesting plot, a bit of romance and though the killer’s identity is known from the beginning of the book, the end is very surprising; it is so not what you will expect.
Beyond that, the writing is very easy to read, very clear and fluent, it just makes you want to read more and more. Let me finish by saying, that this is a really you cannot miss book!
Can’t wait for the next book!“
“CAUTION: hold your breath - you''re gonna need it.
Also - sleep well for a few hours, because you''re definitely gonna lose sleep, due to inability to put this book down.
Amazing, fast-paced book, full of surprises that will catch your breath!“
but I absolutely loved this book
So original, interesting, well-written, compelling... You just dive into the pages and find yourself in the middle of a fascinating mystery that is gets more and more complicated and intriguing with each and every chapter. As for the solution, I couldn’t have guessed it even in a million years! So unexpected! It made me want to read the whole thing from the start and look for the subtle clues hidden within… I’m sure it would be as much fun as the first time :)
A MUST READ BOOK!
I received an ARC of this book and it was well worth the read. A twisted dark psychological thriller that will leave you breathless. I dislike leaving spoilers. When you figure out who is doing what it is a total mind bend then you realize everything you had just read was not who you thought it was. There is no hint throughout the book. When you get to that point you are much like the people in the story, "say what??" Since there are very few of these types of people in the world you would never suspect this particular person. The intro doesn't even give you a hint, which means I am not going to ruin the book for you.
I am in love with this book. It is so well written that I didn't want to put it down. The author has such a way with words that it almost throws you right inside the book as you are reading, like you are really there! Once I started, I couldn't put it down and being a blogger, I am always busy, so that is saying something.
I don't do spoilers, but I would like to hint at a few things. I think this is a great book showing the power of women. It isn't every day, that you get a strong female presence in a book. The other thing I wanted to say, is that I like the fact that this book is different from other thrillers. You don't have to wait to find out who the bad guy is. The only thing you have to figure out is why it is happening.
I think this author has a great career in front of her. Her writing style is one that I can identify with and is more complex and well written then some accomplished writers I have read. I am not one to read this genre very much, but Ms. Moison has me wanting to look into more like this!

I love that this book focuses on the empowerment of a woman!
It's a fast paced and exciting page turner!
It also gives an inside look at what and how we view beauty. Being confident is important and we feel that through Sharon Davis.
Also, sometimes beauty can be used in a way to trick someone. Things are not always as they appear.

Wow, talk about a curve ball. This book has some spins in it that’s for sure. Dark Illusion by Dana V. Moison is a very well written story full of suspense. The prolog itself will have you tilt your head and asking “What the!” I love how it gives each of the characters room to explore their role. I would have to say that my favorite persona is Sharon, a Detective for NYPD. A good detective follows every lead no matter what or who it is, and some even lose a lot of sleep over a case. This book is defiantly in my favorite’s category.
Warning: May cause sleep deprivation if read at night.

Love the twists and suspense!!!
Dark, precise, surprising, thrilling and packed with real-life, delightful dialogues – a combination that kept me fascinated until the very last page!
This book has it all! Humor, love, suspense, human psychology, and some very thrilling scenes.
Everything is cleverly revealed to us up by the author, not neglecting even the tiniest detail, while still saving some powerful cards up her sleeve!
once it grabs you, you can't let go!
“I really like mystery books, especially those similar to James Patterson.
Quick chapters - each with a beginning, middle, and climax. This writing recipe tends to get me fully immersed into character and storyline development.
Dana Moison is a young vibrant woman who has written a thriller novel that actually had me immersed in the story from page one.
We know who the killer is from the beginning of the story, and see the story from the point of the killer (Kelly), detective (Sharon), and famous model (Gloria) - three different women with three different objectives.
The story takes us from New York City, across America, and to the stunning New Zealand outback half way across the world.
Throughout the story, Sharon pieces together the reasons for the murders of two beautiful young women, leading her into the downward spiralling mind of the intelligent, yet psychotic, killer.
What I enjoyed most - the end - there's quite the unexpected twist, and I could NOT put the book down for the last 1/4 - I NEEDED to know what the real truth was.
I cannot wait to read more from Dana - she captured my mind and reminded me why I love reading - for the thrill, chase, and desire to know WHY.
If you enjoy a fast paced and thought provoking thriller mystery novel, check out Dark Illusion today!“
