In Wait for Dark, the plot is interesting, with just the right mix of psychic and non-psychic phenomenon. The secondary characters are well fleshed out and enjoyable. Wait for Dark features Hollis, one of the most powerful and well developed SCU characters. For long-time readers Kay Hooper, you will be pleased by the references to other SCU characters and the presence of Bishop and Miranda. First time readers should still give this book a chance, though, as the story is comfortably contained and Wait for Dark can be read as a completely standalone novel. It might even peak your interest enough to take a look at the entire series, and we would recommend the series with no hesitation.
