Perception by Unique Williams is the story of Caleb Fisher. He is the head of a special forces team tasked to enter the mountainous Afghanistan region and conquer the US opponents who used the locale to escape and attack the US forces. Although Caleb was determined and equipped to win with highly skilled men, reinforced by state-of-the-art technology and weaponry, they would not win or complete this mission. Officially, they stated that "No one survived." After the mission, Caleb has bizarre dreams or nightmares and feels unusually strong with enhanced senses. He tries to go on with his life through dating, work, and a solid routine, but his past will return to haunt him. Constantly slipping between dreams and reality, Caleb doesn't know what is real anymore, but he will find out.
Perception by Unique Williams is a fast-paced, fascinating, and gripping story, a page-turner that keeps you captivated. I enjoyed the in-depth descriptions of scenes, nature, and characters' emotions, mainly Caleb. Williams is brilliant at bringing a story alive through vivid imagery while maintaining the reader's intrigue with an exciting plot that is suspenseful and engaging. The plot was absorbing as it skips between dreams and reality. I felt like I was going on a journey with Caleb to uncover what is real and what is merely his imagination. The success of Perception lies in the strong plot and excellent creative writing that made it effortless and a pleasure to read. Perception is a superb book with an intriguing storyline, well-written and well-conceived.
