Review: Beyond the Eyes - Rebekkah Ford

Reviewer: Brittany
Rating: 4 out of 5 Fairies
***May contain small spoilers***
This book was so good. The synopsis intrigued me so I thought I would like it. But I didn't. I flippin' loved it. I read this book while on a bus and sitting in a bus station. I felt so many emotions while reading this from sympathy, laughter, and even swooned a few times. In fact at points I laughed so hard I had to bite my cheek to not make a complete fool of myself.

The love that Paige and Nathaniel have is down right kismet. I knew from the beginning that these two were soul mates. Not only because the book said so, but also because their characters screamed it. From the very beginning at the club, you could almost feel the connection that these two had. The many times that he was there supporting, encouraging, and grounding Paige only made the characters that more lovable. I love his character.

The other characters are just as lovable but the two that stick out the most to me are Tree and Brayden. I keep asking myself if Tree will play a bigger role in these books, other than just being an amazing best friend to Paige and Nathaniel. He seems like an extremely intuitive character and it even states in the book that he can easily read people.

Now for Brayden. He's gonna be a pain in the hiney. I just know it. His devotion that HE is Paige's soul mate is almost frightening. Like stalker scary. And the fact that he is marked for immortality, not to mention the fact that he said that he would wait FOREVER for her to realize that she's meant to be with him straight up puts a chill up my spine. And not the good kind either. Like I said. Stalker scary. Kinda funny how he jumps out as being a bad guy to me, when really he's a good guy. Hopefully I'm just misunderstanding his character. Hopefully.

I hate how Paige was turned, but I LOVE that it was Nathaniel that changed her. There was plenty of action, romance, cliffhangers, and supernatural to keep me coming back for more. I loved every aspect of this book and I can't wait to see what comes next.

Synopsis

“A thrilling, wholly satisfying first book to a new young adult series. It will keep you wanting more.” –Valentina Cano, Carabosse’s Library

“Beyond the Eyes is haunting yet passionate. This breakout novel is quick and hip, a saucy must-read.”–Charles Land, Judas Pistol

Paige knows evil exists in this world, but she never imagined it would want something from her.

In the small town of Astoria, Oregon, surrounded by deep forest and endless mountains, another world thrives . . . a menacing one where dark spirits dwell in soulless humans. Seventeen-year-old Paige Reed lives in this lush, picturesque setting. She’s not your average teen, though she appears to be. Not only is she heartsick, but she’s been receiving cryptic premonitions from a ghostly voice since the age of four. After she hears a haunting message about herself, supernatural occurrences begin to confuse her.

Nathan Caswell seems to peer into Paige’s soul, evoking a magnetic energy between them they cannot deny. They’re connected. But he’s no ordinary guy. He tracks dark spirits and becomes alarmed when they set their sights on Paige.

When two power-hungry malevolent beings make demands on her, she realizes then the fate of mankind rest in her hands. Her world quickly turns inside out where the impossible becomes possible, and in the end she’s faced with a life changing decision that will not only alter her existence but the world as she knows it.

Can a deeply troubled teen overcome her own demons in order to fight those lurking about? With the past and present colliding, Paige must make the ultimate mortal choice. Will it be the right one?
