The Nano Review
I spy with my little eye, something. . . sinister.
Eye Spy is the latest edition to the Sojourning Souls series by – -. CJ is a young agoraphobic, terrified of stepping outside after his family suffered a brutal attack two years ago. Now the only way he sees the outdoors is through the eyes of other people as he travels from body to body, attempting to solve crimes, bring the bad guys to justice and give closure to the families, something he and his sister Steph are unable to enjoy.
But he’s not the only one who can travel or sense out of body travelers, there’s Cecil a serial killer born at the turn of the Twentieth century and hopping from body to body, and Melvin, a cult leader who can sense and ‘exorcise’ an out of body traveler. Both have set their sights on CJ. Both for various reasons. None of them good.
I loved Eye Spy by – -. It was well written and engaging. It was the last I put down at night after my eyes were too tired to read one more word (Somehow I found myself reading one more chapter), and the first thing I picked up in the morning. I loved the characters CJ and Steph as well as the mechanics of his out of body experiences.
The mystery kept me guessing and the suspense kept me furiously flipping pages, or at least the e Book equivalent. I was so sad when it ended and I hope we’ll see more soon from – -.
A review by Kayti Nika Raet for Readers’ Favorite
In The Girl, the first book in the Sanctum series by Madhuri Blaylock, Wyatt and Ryker seem like two ordinary — albeit stunningly attractive — New York teens but they are really Sanctum warriors, descendant from a group of ten families blessed with angelic powers whose duties consist of keeping the magical and the human world separate.
Wyatt is the straight-laced one, following the rules even as hey grow more extreme and rigid against other “lesser” magical creatures such as werewolves and fairies. Ryker is the bad-boy of their duo. Together they make a pretty good team but in the end it’s Wyatt, not Ryker who finds himself unable to follow the Sanctum-wide order to kill Dev, an angel-demon hybrid.
Now at odds with the Sanctum, Wyatt and Ryker have to find out what’s so special about Dev and why does the Sanctum want her dead so badly.
Told from multiple points of view and featuring a gorgeous cover by Michelle Mason Holmberg, The Girl by Madhuri Blaylock is perfect for anyone who loves the Mortal Instruments series and is looking for some more sexy action.
The Thinky Bits
The Girl by Madhuri Blaylock is a fantastic read that went by super fast and is perfect for nay fans of angel and demon clashes. Of course there’s breaks between the fighting and action for heady sips of banter and romance. What more could a reader ask for?
I did wish that the writing was a little tighter and there were some minor characters who I felt were beginning to dominate the story a little too much. But with its shocking cliff-hanger ending that just might get in the way of true love I’m sure fans of Madhuri Blaylock with be clamoring for book two.
