Vision of Darkness (D.I.E. Squadron #1) by Tonya Burrows, review.



Synopsis 1


A beacon of light…

Undercover DEA agent Alex Brennan doesn’t believe in the paranormal, despite the exhausting nightmares that reveal things he shouldn’t know. When sleep deprivation causes him to make a horrible mistake on the job, he is driven to find answers. Dreams guide him to a lighthouse in Three Churches, Maine, where he finds an inexplicable and comforting familiarity in the arms of the lighthouse’s beautiful keeper, Pru Maddox.

A whisper of memory…

Deadly misfortune has long plagued Pru’s family, the result of a curse “The Green Lady” placed on the lighthouse. Skeptical, Alex searches for less ghostly explanations, though he can’t deny that the town has had more than its fair share of disappearances, suicides, and accidents. As their passion simmers, Alex digs deeper, and his dreams turn violent, frightening, and very real.

A vision of darkness…

To keep Pru safe, Alex must embrace his abilities and unravel the lighthouse’s mystery. Except someone—or something—wants the past to stay buried…and will do anything to keep it that way.



Rachels Review



Tonya Burrows delivers the perfect mix of romance, paranormal, suspense and intrigue all wrapped up in a book that will keep you glued to the pages till you finish and manage to finally take a deep breath.

I loved this book. Just when you thought you have it worked it, the story takes you in a different direction and sucks you in further. Plus the last quarter of the book…….amazing. Hold on for the ride.

The main characters in Pru and Alex were fantastic. I loved Pru’s resilience and Alex was more than a little dreamy. Yes he has a secret, a big one but the way he reacts to Pru and her town, swoon.

When undercover agent Alex is drawn to a small Maine town for some reason little did he know how much it would change his life? Alex has always had a six sense or premonitions, he just chooses to ignore it. He doesn’t believe in the paranormal….at all. But something, an inner voice or feeling has made a road trip to get away from his undercover life more interesting.

An endless red light changes everything. It leads to pie, a mystery and Alex meeting Pru who runs the diner where the best pie is being served.

Pru, who moved back to her home town when her ugly divorce went through and after a horrible robbery gone wrong and now is the proud owner of the towns lighthouse that everyone says is haunted. She can live with a ghost, it just all the accidents that happen around the light house that are starting to get to her.

The sparks immediately fly between these two and the town notices. Of course it does, it’s a small town that thrives on gossip. When Alex ends up staying at the lighthouse with Pru, strange things start to happen more frequently. Especially when Alex and Pru get a little too close.

As things get more complicated in the once quiet little town and secrets start to unravel, Alex and Pru grow closer and closer. With help from an old buddy called in to help both Alex and Pru and another newcomer to the town looking for long buried answers, the truth starts to come out and makes a believer out of Alex just in time for the shit to really hit the fan.

Long buried resentments come to the surface in breath taking manner and as we hurtle towards the end of the lies and deceit that has long plagued the light house can the new believer Alex save Pru or has his change of heart come too late? Will he save the woman he loves and himself in the process or will the Green Lady win once and for all?

Add in secondary characters in Pru friends and Alex’s former team members, who I for one am hoping get their own books, Nick especially! You hear me Tonya???

This is the first in what this reader is hoping will be a series. It’s already gone straight to my keeper shelf. I will read anything this author writes and she didn’t disappoint with this book. Even if you aren’t into paranormal give this book a try. It’s absolutely worth it.
