God's Eye - a Review
God's Eye is the story of a battle between good and evil. The excitement and the mystery begins in the very first sentence of the book and continues until the last page. This 432 page thriller by A.J. Scudiere is so good, so absolutely delicious, and so hard to put down that I finished it in just 2 days. I will admit that I was up most of the night reading this book. Regardless of the title, this book is not from a Christian publisher, not is it written from a Christian perspective.
Katharine Geryon was born into wealth. Her father owns an investment company, Geryon & Light, which she is supposed to take over when he retires. She doesn't date a lot since most men just seem to want her for her elite position in the company and her money. Then one day two men waltz into her life. No matter how much she tries, she can't resist either man. Soon, her desire for them consumes her thoughts, her actions, and her life.
Zachary, who lives in the condominium next door to her, sweeps her off her feet. She falls head over heels in love with him. But, then, Allistair, her new trainee at the firm, also sweeps her off her feet. She doesn't understand how she can be so completely smitten by these two handsome men - one dark, the other light.
Romance is in the book, yes, but there is a much bigger story being told. Piles of soot and ash are left on her carpet in different spots. There are messages left on her bathroom mirror in Latin that show up only when the steam from the shower fogs up the mirror. She begins to catch glimpses of some huge, terrifying creature watching her and this creature is soon joined by a second one. Something really weird and frightening is going on.
With the help of Margot, her librarian friend, she soon discovers that these men are not just men - one is an angel and the other a demon. They are both fighting for Katharine and she has a choice to make. Which one of them can she trust? Can she trust either one of them? An embezzler at Geryon & Light is found brutally murdered and Katharine believes that each one of these men know something about it. Is this what they have planned for her? And what is this choice that both of them keep telling her she has to make?
Katharine's terror and confusion are shown so vividly that this reader felt them right along with her. Trying to figure out which one is the demon and which one is an angel is enough to keep you turning the page, but when you add the romance, along with the accompanying dread and bewilderment felt by Katharine, it is about impossible to put the book down.
I would love to tell you more, but I don't want to give away too much of the story. I wouldn't recommend this book for young readers. There are several sexual scenes in the book, so it is more appropriate for mature readers.
I purchased God's Eye in ebook format myself. If you would like your own copy of this paranormal thriller/romance, I have provided an Amazon link below.
