The Eyes that See - A Prelude to the Balancer Chronicles
on Aug. 17, 2011
The Eyes that see is a short story that introduces you to a secret society that tracks supernatural beings. It was a quick read, but smacked a little of Anne Rices novels that have a similar society. If you enjoy books about vampires, werewolves, and other supernatural beings; then this is a enjoyable quick read to get you ready for his full length novel.
I got this book free from www.librarything.com in exchange for a review.
The book starts off with the vampire assassin telling you about one of her kills. She then starts to tell you the story about how she became an assassin. The story was interesting, but I would have liked to see more detail. The book was realitively short so could have been expanded by giving more back story about "Steven" her love and the one that made her a vampire. I would also have liked to hear why the tragic past turned her into an assassin. I felt that the book stopped in the middle of the story.
The love story is very two dimensional and could be more fleshed out, but with that being said I would still recommend the book for a vacation book. It is a good read for both teens and adults that like that kind of Fiction.
