“Paige knows evil exists in this world, but she never imagined it would want something from her.
After a ghostly voice whispers a haunting message to seventeen-year-old Paige Reed, Paige’s life takes a nightmarish turn. Unwilling to tell her friends about the supernatural occurrences happening in her life, Paige feels more alone than ever–until she meets Nathan Caswell.
Nathan is not only hot, but seems to peer into Paige’s soul, evoking a magnetic energy between them that cannot be denied. But he’s no ordinary guy. He tracks dark spirits, and becomes alarmed when they set their sights on Paige.
And then there are the two power-hungry dark spirits who believe Paige can find King Solomon’s magical ring for them, because when her father was alive, he was close to finding it. If Paige doesn’t comply with their demands, they’ll kill her.
Paige is forced to dig deep into her father’s past and unearths shocking secrets about him and his bloodline. With the past and present colliding, Paige is only sure about two things in her life: she needs to outwit the dark spirits to stay alive, and she’s completely and helplessly in love with Nathan.”
Beyond The Eyes is a young adult paranormal told by Paige, an independent seventeen year old who lost her father, and longs for her mother’s presence. Her mother tries to avoid Paige as much as possible because Paige reminds her so much of her husband. In this book, Paige discovers that her father has something to do with the dark spirits, and has to find out why a spirit is taking interest of her. Although I enjoyed reading Beyond The Eyes, I still had ups and downs while reading it.
The first chapter hooked me on especially when Paige tells the readers that she’s dead. Huh. That made me curious and wanted to keep on reading. In this book, I really love how she and her friends were super close. They got each other’s backs no matter what. I didn’t like the insta-love, love-at-first-sight though. I like Paige and Nathan’s relationship, but just not how they met. It reminded me of Twilight a couple of times especially after the middle part of the book. Although the high school drama was entertaining, I still wish that there was more paranormal stuff going on since that’s what the book is about right? The drama and romance part was kind of taking over the plot which slowed the pacing just a tad. Overall I enjoyed it and was an interesting read. I recommend it to those who love Twilight and paranormal romance.
