Rated 4.43/5 based on 42 reviews
Adam Smith, member of The Eyes that See, a centuries old secret society dedicated to documenting the supernatural in all its forms, has just stumbled across something monumental. He has found proof of balancers.

About Chris Adonn

I want to write. I want to lose myself in compelling narratives and adventures as they unfold in my mind and spill onto pages which will invariably result in a book by the time I am done.
Writing started for me as a way to pass the time whenever I ran out of reading material or wanted to get rid of excess creative energy (I was an artist specializing in the painting medium (still am).
Before I knew it, I was in love with the new freedom I could find only by putting pen to paper (or rather, fingers to a key-board). I wanted to delineate the characters I had dreamed into existence on a two dimensional surface with 3D fluidity.
I have no idea if I have succeeded in this initial feat, but now I mainly long to see where they will take me to next.
Of course I want much more than that as writing the story is only the first step for me. I want to present my books to the world in a fashion that captures the market for which they were intended. I want intrepid readers to meet the characters I have fallen in love with and perhaps, fall in love with them too.

The Eye that See is a prelude to the Balancer Chronicles. I now want to go and read it. The eyes that see was good and wants you to find out more about their world.
Its a really fast read. Still the characters are ones you want to find out more about them.
Adam is young man that broke some rules and caught something on tape that he should not have. Adam is excited because he knows his mentor really wanted to find out about them.
Fredrick has wanted to know proof of Balancers exist for years, but he is concened that Adam broke the rules and put him in danger. Jonathan Darcy is Fredrick boss and he is mad that the tape exists. He has always lied about them to Fredrick. Now they are all at risk.
Wolfgang Eriksson is a Balancer who protects humans from the natural world and know one is supposed to know a bout them. He has the choice to take their memories or kill them.
I am excited to go read more about Balancers in the next book of the series.
I was given this book from Librarything in exchange of honest reviews.

A prelude to the Balancer novel I read last year . The Eyes That See is a short, simpler introduction to Balancers. An enjoyable read which wets the appetite for the books to follow. One to watch.

A short prequel to a series that the author, Chris Adonn, is writing about Balancers. This is a good read if the series interests you to give you an idea of what they are about and what the reader can expect with the stories. An author I will be putting on my watch list

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.

First of all, let me say this book is very short, and may perhaps be meant as a teaser, which may negate what I am about to say. BUT...I thought it could have been so much better. Adonn's idea isn't all that unique, but could be very fun in a sort of high brow vampire-slayer sort of way. However, he just didn't make me feel it. The characters were undeveloped (see disclaimer) and one character (who Adonn admits is his favorite) is unlikeable. I believe he is supposed to be cocky and charming (just my type) but he doesn't quite let us see the charm. Instead, we simply are to assume he's likeable because Adonn keeps telling us so. I find myself curious to see if the next book might be better, but I won't go out of my way to read it.

The Eyes that See written by Chris Adonn is a prequel to the Balancer Chronicles. It provides some back story to the Chronicles. I absolutely loved this book. It had the traditional fantasy creatures but also a nice twist of originality, a new breed of supernatural. Never having read or heard of the Balancer Chronicles I look forward to reading them now that I have read the prequel. If you are a fan of fantasy then you will love this book.

Truly an interesting and fast-paced urban fantasy novella! Despite the few typos, I quite enjoyed reading this and am looking forward to finding out more about the Balancers!
