Review # 42: God's Eye by A.J. Scudiere

      Katharine Geryon comes from money, runs the family business, and seems to have the perfect life with everything she'd ever need, until she begins experiencing strange and horrific events she has no control over. She feels watched and begins seeing things that couldn't possibly exist, strange messages in her apartment and dark creatures hiding in the shadows. This is coupled with the arrival of two mysterious and alluring men, Allistair and Zachary, who may have their own motives for staying by her side. Who can she trust? And when she's pushed to her breaking point, will she be able to make the right choice and save her soul?
      Firstly, I have to acknowledge the cover art by Ruke Studios; it is beautifully unsettling and creepy, yet it drew me to the book. Secondly, I have to applaud A.J. Scudiere on another complex and amazing read that kept me up past 3am. After reading A.J. Scudiere's Resonance and Vengeance, I was excited to see if God's Eye could top them; and it definitely did. There are only three primary characters, Katharine, Allistair, and Zachary, all of which are thoroughly developed and unique as individuals, even though most of the thoughts and dialogue center around Katharine. I found her to be strong, intelligent, and refreshingly bold, in contrast to other female characters. I felt there could have been a little bit more romance involved, but I liked how the main focus was on Katharine's choice, and how her decision could change more than just her own life. The theme was very apparent, but the ending was not foreshadowed; I thought it was a great page-turner and that, overall, it was excellent. (I got a fair amount of goosebumps too). I recommend God's Eye to anyone who loves a book they won't want to put down!

Rating: On the Run (4.5/5)

*** I received this ARC from Griffyn Ink (JKS Communications) in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
