Dark Mind Rising: A Dark Intercept Novel

We rated this book:


Violet and Kendall destroyed almost all of the Intercept, a system used to maintain societal order using the emotions. Two years later, Violet has her own detective agency and Kendall is in the new police force. When Violet is hired to look into a recent suicide, she wants to chalk it up to the denial of a mental health issue. When a double suicide follows, Violet becomes concerned, especially when Rez, her friend from work, informs her of a possible Intercept use. Now she’s racing the clock, determined to find out who may have started up the Intercept again, but with even worse intentions.

Keller’s sequel to The Dark Intercept starts two years later. Some situations, like her father’s placement in a home and the change in her former love interest, have changed dramatically, making it difficult to connect the two stories together. There are some notes that are forgotten, like the fact that Violet shouldn’t go back to Old Earth or she would suffer health issues, as Violet makes multiple trips back without repercussions. The characters are flat and the love interest is forced. This series is sufficient if no other reading material is available, but not something to recommend.
