Astrid Knight absolutely slays in this breakout debut. With endearing characters, relatable moments, and heavy doses of nerdom, Perception Check is an unputdownable read.
Violet is an incredible main character who faces past trauma, new friendships, and trouble with old friendships, all while finding out the far-off fantasy land in her favorite ttrpg is real. She’s even more entwined when she discovers the root of her trauma—the kidnapping of her best friend—continues on in Velmyra, the land from the game. Toss in sexy, dorky, and funny new characters, high stakes, and magic and you have a recipe for one hell of a ride.
I cannot wait for the second book in this series and am so excited to learn more about Violet, Eddie, the land of mages and magic, and everyone they met along the way.An easy 5-star read and perfect for anyone who loves gaming, geeking out, magical lands, and tongue-in-cheek humor.
