    God's Eye introduces us to Katherine Geryon, a woman who has lived what some would call an easy life. Growing up in an affluent family with a controlling and emotionally absent father and a mother who taught her that appearances are everything, Katherine simply floated through life, turning a blind eye to what she did not want to see and letting all of her decisions be made by others.

Growing up in an affluent family with a controlling and emotionally absent father and a mother who taught her that appearances are everything, Katherine simply floated through life, turning a blind eye to what she did not want to see and letting all of her decisions be made by others. Working in her father's company, she was viewed with envy and distrust by most people and she never put forth the effort to make any real connections or to cause people to view her as anything more than she appeared. When two gorgeous and charismatic men suddenly appeared in her life during the same time that unexplained phenomenon began happening in her home, suddenly she had no choice than to open her eyes and notice the things happening around her. Finding herself in an emotionally charged sexual relationship with both of them, Katherine knew that eventually she would have to choose, and she was slowly starting to become aware of what making the wrong choice might cost her. It's difficult to put my finger on the genre that God's Eye would fit into because there are elements of so many. I would call it a Paranormal Psychological Fantasy Thriller with elements of steamy romance. The plot wound slowly around these characters, building suspense and tension as I tried to figure out which was angel and which was demon and which would Katherine choose in the end. Ultimately, God's Eye was about the far-reaching results of the choices that we make every day. It's important that each person is aware that our decisions can have consequences outside of ourselves and that when we make a choice that affects others we have to acknowledge and own it. Only with awareness and accountability can we begin to change the way we think and act. When we begin to open our eyes, our mind, and our heart, we can begin to change both our own world as well as have a positive effect on the world at large, even in small ways. Katherine's choice seemed to be between Angel and Demon, good or evil, but as shown in the book, sometimes its hard to determine which is which. Katherine had to look at the ripple effect of what first appeared to be small, unimportant choices but even when her eyes began to see, she was still unsure which was the right path for her to take. I want to take a minute to mention that Alistair and Zachary will probably appeal to those who love Paranormal Romance. This one does not lack in the "steamy love scenes with hot supernatural guys" department. I was immediately drawn to Alistair because it seemed that his character had more depth than Zachary, but I'm sure others will find Zachary's alpha-ness highly attractive. Overall, God's Eye is a book I think many people will enjoy. Once you get past the frighteningly awesome cover, you'll see that this story goes much deeper than your average angel/demon paranormal romance. And the image on the cover will make sense in the context of the story. I would recommend God's Eye to anyone who enjoys paranormal romance, horror, or psychological thrillers. The eBook is just $.99 at Amazon right now, I definitely suggest grabbing it while you can get it at this price!

As the daughter of the president of the company she works in, most people think that her position in the company is due solely to her relationship with the boss man, and most ignore her long hours at work and her utter dedication to the company. When suddenly not one but two handsome men enter her life, Katharine is thrown for a loop -- after all, most men who want to date her either see her as a meal ticket or a way to rise to the top of their own careers. So when the handsome Zachary moves in next door and quickly pursues her, and then her attractive new assistant Alistair cashes in on the sparking attraction between them, she's at a complete loss. What Katharine doesn't realize, however, is that she's been chosen as the personal battlefield between Good and Evil, and that the outcome of more than just her own heart rests on a choice she will have to make... One thing that I should be clear about up front is that this is not a traditional "romance". While there is a romantic aspect, this is much more strongly about choices, and the battle between good and evil. Don't get me wrong, there's still plenty of sex and romance, but in the end, that's not really what this story is about. I don't particularly care for infidelity in my romance novels -- there's just nothing sexy in my mind about cheating on someone -- but in this particular case I admit that it was a very minor negative point, if for nothing else than the fact that Zachary and Alistair are both unashamedly using Katharine for their own ends. In the end, however, there were enough hot love scenes, world building, and intriguing plot twists to keep me from being able to put this one down, so despite containing not only a love triangle but also infidelity, it scores a very solid 4/5 Stars. Halloween Special -- God's Eye is only $2.99 for the eBook (regular price $7.99) through October 31st! Grab it now while it's such a great price!

There are a number of authors that I've read multiple books by and sometimes I can only read so many as they start to sound like the same story re-written with a little difference here or there. John Saul, who I read a lot of in my early teenage years, is a classic example of this writing style. Somehow Scudiere manages to write vastly different tales and each one is perfect and cherished in its own way. God's Eye is the story of Katherine, a woman who has it all. She's shuffled from position to position at her father's well established multi-million dollar investment firm learning the ropes so that when her father finally steps down she can take over. But is that really what she wants? Before she meets Allistair and Zachary, she knows her path. It might not be the one she will choose in the end, but it is what she has been groomed for and she doesn't even consider something else. But when Allistair and Zachary start to reveal how the world really is and how it could be for her, and she makes a true friend in the librarian, Margot, Katherine's world is turned upside down and she is forced to consider her life and her decisions. Truly a wonderful read, as are Scudiere's other books, I highly recommend you pick this up when it releases and read it for yourself. It will make you think and you will fall in love with the characters, the angel, the demon, and of course, Katherine.

This is one intense and deeply provocative book. I was caught up in this story immediately. This war that the three main characters were waging with each other and unknown forces was captivating. More elaborate thoughts…a few days after I finished this book… This is a fascinating…a totally fascinating concept. Katharine and Zachary and Allistair … the main and most important characters…were all involved with each other. Zachary and Allistair were not of this world. Both want Katherine… and what I loved about this story is that I could not tell who was good and who was evil at any given point during the telling of this story. At one point I thought they were both evil because the good guy did not always act like the good guy and the bad guy did not always act like the bad guy…no wonder Katharine was a mess. That leads me to Katharine…sole heir to her family’s business and fortune. Trained from birth to be both a debutante and a business woman. From the beginning she was torn between two men. Men? Let’s use that term very loosely. Let me state again that at the beginning of the book one of the men seemed good while the other seemed not so good. After a hundred pages in…I had no clue which was which. And I could not put this book down… Strange things continue to happen in Katharine’s apartment. She finds soot and ashes and creatures. She is frightened and yet tells no one. She declares one man her boyfriend but the other one is always in her thoughts and her dreams. Have I mentioned that there are tons of sexy juicy bits in this story? There are. They are beautifully written…not offensive and quite amazing. Enough said by me. Just for a minute let me discuss Katharine. A good girl. A girl without friends. A girl who has not felt normal parental feelings from her parents. It is sort of all business. She is their only child. She is both daughter and son. She does what she is told within her father’s business. Her life before Allistair and Zachary is colorless and bland. She abides by the rules. Until these two beings enter her world and disrupt everything Katharine never questioned anything. Now she questions everything. What are her father’s business interests really doing to the world…how much should she care about the repercussions of so much wealth for so few and so much pain for so many? The good thing is that Katharine begins to care and question. She makes a friend. She challenges her father. She challenges Allistair and Zachary. The ending is dramatic, exciting and yet in a way peaceful. Things change for Katharine and perhaps she is better able to live the life that she should be living. Ambivalent thoughts about this book? It might have been a tad too long. But I am used to reading shorter YA books so this could just be me...I am sure it is. And I did not get how Katharine declared Zachary her boyfriend after a few days…when they did not really do things together. Other than those minor issues…loved it!!!

My Synopsis: Katharine Geryon was born into wealth and position. Her father runs Geryon & Light, an investment company, which she will be expected to take over when he retires. Her mother ensured that Katharine knew all the proper social protocols and deportments for her station. Katharine has always done as expected, done as she has been asked, and just coasted along through life. All that is about to change with the appearance in her life of two men – Allistair and Zachary – dark and light – good and evil? Katharine is about to have her eyes opened … My Thoughts: “God’s Eye” is an amazing book – I truly wish I could tell you more about the story itself, but it is structured so that, if I were to give you any more information, I would inevitably spoil it for you. While the set-up is perfect for a paranormal romance, that is not what this is. Not to say there is no romance, but that’s not what the book is about – the book is about choices, understanding and learning to see what is around you by truly looking rather than just coasting. It is about Katharine finally growing up and learning to see the effect she truly has upon the world and to consciously choose to make things better. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading – it’s well-written and brilliantly characterized. I’ve read all of AJ’s books and they just keep getting better – I’m anxiously awaiting her next novel, “Phoenix,” although there is no word as to when we can expect that one to be finished, since it appears to still be in the research stage. Also by...: “God’s Eye” is AJ’s third novel and is scheduled for release 10/1/11. Her previous books are “Resonance” and “Vengeance.” Follow the progress of AJ’s 4th book, “Phoenix,” at www.PhoenixTheBook.com Thanks to JKS Communications for the chance to preview this amazing book!

    Egalley thanks to Griffyn Ink I hope you downloaded this book when it was offered as a free read on Amazon. No?

It's still under £2 on Kindle, so I suggest you buy it, because God's Eye is amazing.

There is an angel and a demon in her life battling for her soul, but like me you would never guess who is who. You are constantly forced to doubt their every motive and change your mind and second guess yourself, A.J.Scudiere is that good. God's Eye is a creepy, unexpectedly steamy and deeply mysterious read, and it drives its point home perfectly: we can not compromise and simply go with the flow if we are not happy with our life choices, we have to fight for what we think is right. The angels and demons are not as visual as we're used to in paranormals, but more elusive, haunting, metaphysical beings. This book is a puzzle, and I'm still not sure what I got in the end out of it, but I know for sure that the impact was profound. I had to sit and digest it. Not many books do that to me anymore. Overall, highly recommended.

Just like those movies where everything is messed up, but everything turns out alright in the end, or maybe not. I’m babbling, sorry, I do that sometimes *always* and things get really crazy, really fast. Focus! I need to focus! Ok, I think I got it. CHAIN REACTION! We wake up in the morning, drink coffee, go to work and spend our lives following a river that flows endlessly till the day we cease to exist. Every day we make choices, conscious or not that these choices have consequences. I’m not talking about the big decisions like choosing Team Jacob or Team Edward. I’m talking about the apparently small ones like choosing the brand of your shampoo. Something like that can change many lives. How? Well, lets play a little game I like to call “Things that are so crazy it just may be true”. You go to the supermarket, pick up a shampoo that smells good. Your money helps the shampoo company to get bigger and profit. With the profit they try to come up with new products. These new products have to be tested and so, many dogs, cats, rabbits and stuff are broth in to run these tests. Many of these little animals will die in pain because of allergic reaction to the chemicals in the shampoo’s formula. So, if you think about it, countless pets will die by your hand for something that seem so frugal like a shampoo. Ok, sorry, I’m being mean, but I’m not lying. These stuff really happens and worse. Now that I scared the crap out of you, lets get this review done with. LoL The Plot - K is a grownup girl that works for her dad in a company that deals with money investments. Yeah, it’s a grownup book. No high school stuff here. So, she lives her dull life until one day her dad brings a guy for her to teach and she feels that things are about to change. If that wasn’t alarming enough, she gets a new neighbor too. These two men appeared in her life and they are so hot and K find herself stuck between the two with no idea of how to choose. Little did she know that her decision means more than simply choosing between two hot mans. The Characters - We have: K She is smart, beautiful and completely dormant to everything around her. A He is like a 5yo, but in the best sense on the analogy. He feels every single thing around him like is the first time. Really endearing and sweet, but he has something dark and frightening that he hides. E He is perfect, at least on the outside. He is charming and beautiful like a diamond, and just as hard and cold. M She is super bright and love books and researching. I like her, I like her a lot. These are the main characters and the ones you should really know. They are well developed and have the necessary depth to be real and matter in the story. The Writing - It’s in third person and, in this case, I think is the best way to tell this particular story. It’s a grownup writing and was a little different from what I’m used to. I don’t know how to explain, it just felt more serious than the writing I’m used to read. It doesn’t explain every detail along the way, so you just have to pay attention to the clues and have a good memory, cose if you can’t remember something it’s not gonna be reminded along the way. So, keep sharp. I particularly like this. I often find irritating the fact that some authors find necessary to keep reminding stuff all the freaking time. This slow the reading too much. Bottom line is, I like this reading. I don’t love it, but I like very much. Especially the fact that, just like the main character, I couldn’t say until the last minute, who was the bad guy and who was the good guy. A book that keeps you guessing all the way to the end has to be respected. The Audiobook Recording - This is the part where I praise and bitch around at the same time. I’ll start with the good part. This is an amazing recording. I felt like I was listening to a movie. The soundtrack and even the background sounds were wonderful. But I have to admit that I was startle sometimes with the way too real sounds of phone rings and steps that appeared out of nowhere. And in the really scary parts, wow, I almost pee my pants. Really one of the best recordings I ever heard. My favorites were E, A and K’s dad. A was the best. Now, lets get to the bitchy part of this. I want to let this really clear, I don’t know any of these narrators and don’t have anything against any of them. My opinion is based only in their reading. That being said, Justine Eyre’s reading sucks. Really. She has this really annoying nasal sound that makes me want to tear my ears off. In some parts she read just fine, but in others I had to stop and take a deep breath. I honestly find my self skipping the audiobooks that she reads. It’s not worth the pain. Considerations - You know when you read a book and there’s the main character that have these two hot guys that are all over her? And she feels attracted to them, and just can’t say who she likes more? But she has to decide between the two? Yeah, this is really normal for a paranormal story these days, but what we don’t see much is a choice that actually means something more than just choosing between two hot guys. K has some really important decision to make that can cost more than her heart and her panties. This is about seeing things beyond your safe fence, to open your eyes to the things around you and really live your life instead of just going through it. It’s about turning something evil and using it to make a difference and change things for the better. To be more than people think or expect of you. To live up to your expectations and no one else’s. To stick up to what you believe no matter what people tell you. And also, the meaning of love. Real love, with no strings and no boundaries. Love that allowed you to choose yourself instead of putting you in danger. To free you even if that means heartbreak. That unselfish love that we don’t see very often.

God’s Eye is a stand alone novel about a woman who is caught in a battle between an Angle and a Demon. What I love the most about the story is that I don’t see it as a struggle between heaven and Hell, I see it as a story about a woman trying to make a choice about who she is and what, if anything, she stands for. I loved that you don’t know who This is the first book I have read by AJ Scudiere but it will not be my last. I am actually anxious to go back and read the ones I have missed already! God’s Eye is a stand alone novel about a woman who is caught in a battle between an Angle and a Demon. What I love the most about the story is that I don’t see it as a struggle between heaven and Hell, I see it as a story about a woman trying to make a choice about who she is and what, if anything, she stands for. I loved that you don’t know who is the demon and who is the angel. You have only a small amount more information than Katherine does so as the reader you really get to struggle with her and try to decide who to trust. Katherine is an interesting character. At the beginning of the story, she is very much a product of her surroundings and her upbringing. Her family has money and at some point she must have given up control over her life. She works at her fathers company and moves departments at his whims. She is a woman who is just existing and is easily influenced by others. Two men enter her life in a short amount of time and they both easily control her as well. The struggle for her then becomes learning to take control of her life or not. Waking up and seeing the impact that her life is having on other people, specifically through her work, or continuing to blindly be led along on the same path. While it might seem from my description that she is uninteresting or unlikable, that is not the case. Following along her journey shows you how anyone can become a passenger in their own life. Both of the men in her life are fighting for more than just Katherine. They both have their positives and negatives and I really felt that she could have chosen either one. I followed along with her decisions agreeing at times that one was better than the other and then switching back again with her. I think the men are quite the metaphor, perhaps hell can look like heaven when you shine the right light on it. Besides the men, she also makes a female friend. I am delighted every time I read a book with an authentic female friendship. Margot is interesting in her own way and she is great for Katherine. I was left clueless right until the end about how this story was going to turn out and that is something I have learned not to take for granted. When you read as much as I do, you often know where a story is headed long before you want to. I like to be surprised and left guessing until the last second. This is an adult story so there is some sexual content but nothing graphic. I know that many of my readers tend to shy away from religious based stories and I think that this one is much more about Katherine than religion so I hope you don’t let that stop you from reading it. I really enjoyed it and I would recommend it as a great read especially considering the season. There was a spooky factor in this story for sure! BOTTOM LINE: Interesting characters and well written storytelling that leaves you guessing until the end. Not to be missed!

    This is not the genre I typically read, but the teaser in "Shelf Awareness" was so compelling I requested a galley and I am so glad I did, and so grateful to have received one. The premise is as ancient as humanity- Good versus Evil and Man's imperfect ability to tell the difference much less choose between them. In the globally metaphorical sense, Katharine Geryon is "Everyman". Allistair and Zachary are the Demon and Angel battling for her in just the latest round of an ongoing primordial battle This is not the genre I typically read, but the teaser in "Shelf Awareness" was so compelling I requested a galley and I am so glad I did, and so grateful to have received one. The premise is as ancient as humanity- Good versus Evil and Man's imperfect ability to tell the difference much less choose between them. In the globally metaphorical sense, Katharine Geryon is "Everyman". Allistair and Zachary are the Demon and Angel battling for her in just the latest round of an ongoing primordial battle they have waged with Katharine as the current prize. But who is Demon and who is Angel? Katharine can't tell for sure, and neither can we until the very last heartbreaking moment of the literally earthshaking contest in which Katharine must finally and surprisingly choose her destiny. I was drawn into this story from the beginning, watching Katharine confront horrific supernatural episodes that threaten her well-ordered predictable world and her role as dutiful daughter and capable executive. Adding to her distress are two charismatic men who turn her life inside out with their attractiveness. Katharine can't resist either one, and coupled with mysterious messages on her bathroom mirror in Latin and nights filled with supernatural terrors, she begins to neglect her staid duties in her workaday world and starts the journey that will force her to make her choice and become who she is meant to be. Watching Katharine's evolution from drone to being fully alive is one of the best parts of the book. The friendship of Margot, a Librarian who actually believes and helps her is the catalyst she needs and their relationship is another pleasure to read. Of course trying to guess the true identities of the supernatural combatants is what keeps the pages turning. I loved it!

    What could be more invasive than the horror of having your mind invaded, your home intruded upon, and your world suddenly turned into a very different place? What if you began to see things that others couldn't see, and you began to behave in ways far different from your normal behavior? Katharine Geryon is a daughter of privilege, trained as a corporate executive in her father's successful investment firm. All her life, she has known her place, her future seemingly secure and etched in stone. H What could be more invasive than the horror of having your mind invaded, your home intruded upon, and your world suddenly turned into a very different place? What if you began to see things that others couldn't see, and you began to behave in ways far different from your normal behavior? Katharine Geryon is a daughter of privilege, trained as a corporate executive in her father's successful investment firm. All her life, she has known her place, her future seemingly secure and etched in stone. Her life's foundation is shaken to the core when she begins to have other-worldly visitors in the form of strange animals which appear in her apartment and leave piles of soot behind when they vanish. Strange messages in Latin are left on her bathroom mirror, giving her the feeling that no part of life is without vulnerability. In "God's Eye", A.J. Scudiere skillfully weaves a tale of a woman's struggle to survive as a demon and an angel war with each other over the conquest of her very soul. Good or evil? Who's the good guy and who's the devil? Both so handsomely packaged and so seductively charming--how to tell which one to choose? It becomes very clear to Katharine that she must make a choice. A life-altering choice with long-lasting effects, not just for her life, but for the lives of many others. The author fleshes out the paranormal thriller story line with passion and depth and interesting, intriguing cultural and business insights. She gives us a heroine to root for as we watch Katharine's character growth while the ground under her feet turns to shifting sand. The resolution is unexpected and ultimately satisfying.

    This book is hot and steamy in a very good way. You probably wouldn't guess that from the cover, but you might from the summary. The cover looks like a scary paranormal book, while the summary reads almost like a romance novel. Combine the two, and it pretty much describes the book, but in the way you would describe the sun as being a hot place to visit. This is a story about good versus evil, but you don't really know who is the good guy and who is the bad guy until right near the end. Like real This book is hot and steamy in a very good way.

Combine the two, and it pretty much describes the book, but in the way you would describe the sun as being a hot place to visit. This is a story about good versus evil, but you don't really know who is the good guy and who is the bad guy until right near the end. Like real life, your choices aren't clear. I loved that you could pick your side without really knowing if you were choosing good or evil until it was too late. Who did I choose? Allistair with his hot office sex ways. Did I choose good or evil? You'll have to read the book and find out. I did mention it was steamy, right? There is quite a bit of sex, and a bit of swearing, but none of it is vulgar. It borders on bodice-ripping goodness, but without the awkward cover art. Love it! This book was deeper than just that though. Like I mentioned, you didn't know the good guy from the bad guy until the end. This really brought home the lesson that your choices aren't usually black and white, there's a lot of gray in real life. And just because the options aren't clear, doesn't mean your choices don't have consequences. Katharine's decisions made far reaching consequences, ones that not one she but many other people had to live with too. This book was completely different from the other AJ Scudiere book (Resonance) I read, but it was just as awesome. Guess I need to go track down his other books and keep an eye out for any future ones as well.

    Well, after reading through some other reviews, I guess I'm in the minority on my review of this book, but that's OK. We can't all like the same things, right??? So a young woman, who is already experiencing some strange episodes of finding ashes and seeing animals (?) in the shadows of her bedroom suddenly finds 2 new men in her life and it seems like both of them are pretty much irresistible. In fact, her actions seem to be pretty much out of the norm for her...sleeping with them both.

When she starts to find messages on her mirror, written in a language she doesn't understand, she befriends a local librarian to help her translate. Seems like she might be being visited by both a demon and an angel who are "fighting" for her soul. Her problem is, which is which and who should she trust? The story line just seemed very repetitive to me with her constantly questioning her behavior, her feelings and her thinking. Maybe everyone would be that way if they were in the circumstances but reading about constantly was giving me a headache.

Scudiere. It tells the story of Katharine Geryon, a young woman born into privilege and who, so far in life, has had everything handed to her, including a well paying job in her father’s thriving investment firm. However, her seemingly perfect, albeit sheltered life is suddenly thrown into turmoil by a series of increasingly disturbing events including visits from phantom animals, strange piles of ash and cryptic messages. Soon she finds two charismatic strangers embroiled in her affairs. Allistair is her handsome new assistant at work, while Zachary is her charming new neighbour. However, neither of these men are what they seem. One is an angel, the other a demon, and Katharine has no way of knowing which is which. Soon Katharine’s soul will be the staging ground for a battle between Heaven and Hell and she will be forced to make a choice that will decide the fate of all three parties. A pleasant surprise To be honest, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect coming into God’s Eye. While the blurb and description implied that it was a supernatural thriller of sorts, I was a little worried that certain elements of the story might lend themselves to either religious preaching or bring the book firmly into the territory of yet another paranormal romance featuring a naïve young woman trapped in a confusing and tedious love triangle. While I have no issue with people choosing to read novels featuring these elements, I tend to avoid reading them myself and finding Paranormal Romance or Christian Fiction marketed as something else tends to annoy me. Therefore I am happy to announce that while I initially considered reading God’s Eye a slight risk, my reservations were proven to be unfounded and I very much enjoyed the novel. All in all, God’s Eye is more of a coming of age novel centering around Katharine’s journey of self discovery than paranormal romance, despite the fact that romance did feature in the plot. For instance, one of my favourite parts of the novel involved Katherine’s realisation that her obliviousness to the world around her has caused her to overlook the far-reaching consequences of her actions. Furthermore, despite the fact there are some quite steamy love scenes, God’s Eye is in no way just a set-up for erotica. Likewise, the religious aspects of the novel, such as the angels and demons, were used in an interesting way and did not overwhelm the rest of the story. A race against time Scudiere begins God’s Eye by getting straight to the point, introducing all three major players and the basic set-up by the end of the first chapter. From that point on the novel carries along at a reasonably fast pace as Katharine and her allies race against time to discover the true natures of Allistair and Zachary and her role in their battle. The plot is well structured and the mystery develops in a way that is suspenseful yet satisfying. I, myself, wasn’t entirely sure how the situation would resolve right up until the novel’s climax. The prose is more direct than lyrical, which itself adds to the sense of urgency that resonates throughout the book. Characters you can care about The characters throughout the novel are, on the whole, well realised and relatable. I found myself easily becoming invested in their fates and desperately wanting my favourites to succeed. The protagonist, Katharine, is likeable despite her privilege and naivety and feels quite believable. While the interactions between Katherine, Allistair and Zachary are well done, possibly my favourite relationship throughout the novel was not a romantic one. Instead it involved the developing friendship between Katharine and Margot, a librarian helping her with her troubles who eventually becomes her first true friend. I very much enjoyed watching their friendship develop and seeing its effect on their lives as a whole. Why should you read this book? While I have only been reviewing for under a year and thus am no expert, God’s Eye is definitely one of the most enjoyable self published or indie press novels I’ve read so far and one of the most professionally edited and put together. If I didn’t know better and just picked it up off the shelf I doubt I would have known it wasn’t traditionally published. Overall, God’s Eye was an enjoyable read that I would recommend to anyone looking for a decent contemporary fantasy thriller to wile away the hours. I look forward to seeing what Scudiere comes up with next.

    Going into God's Eye, I honestly wasn't sure what to expect. Good vs. Evil. Two charismatic, and also paranormal, men vying for the soul of a woman. It all sounded amazing! I'm not generally a reader of this genre, but I thought I'd take a step out of the box and give it a shot. What slowed me down right off the bat was the pacing. Katherine works. A lot. Since she's nearly always working, a lot of the beginning of the book is dedicated to just that.

It all sounded amazing! I'm not generally a reader of this genre, but I thought I'd take a step out of the box and give it a shot. What slowed me down right off the bat was the pacing. Katherine works. A lot. Since she's nearly always working, a lot of the beginning of the book is dedicated to just that. It sets up her job, her relationship with her father, and shows her basic personality. I understood why all this was there. Still, it didn't change the fact that I all but skimmed the first ten or so chapters. Between not liking Katherine at that point, and not really understanding why her job was so important to the overall story, I just wanted to get to something exciting. As it turns out, things did get exciting and I became much more invested in the story the more that I read. Katherine really came into her own towards the middle of the book. With the help of Allistair and Zachary (and some midnight romps with each), she started to open up. The Katherine that was born again in this part of the book was looking for what she really wanted in her life. Happiness. I really liked this new Katherine! This was a women who stood up for herself. One who went to find help to uncover a mystery. This was an exciting Katherine and I ate it up. That being said, the second half of the book was really my favorite part. The reader is introduced to Margot, the local librarian, and the two women work together to uncover the reasons why Katherine is being visited by paranormal beings. The mystery is uncovered piece by piece, and I got a fairly good sense of what was ultimately going on. This is also where I fell more in love with both male characters. As Katherine learned more about each one, things got really interesting. By the time the ending came, I was on the edge of my seat. I'll be honest, I loved the ending. What A.J. Scudiere has written isn't just a story about good and evil. It's about finding one's true potential, and making decisions based on happiness instead of expectation. Yes, God's Eye was a little slow at times. However once I got into the meat of the story, once I was invested, I actually genuinely enjoyed myself. While I'm sure my newness to this genre affected my read, I see a lot of potential here. Bottom line, if you have an opportunity to pick up God's Eye, do it. You might find a new favorite read.

Caught in the middle is one human upon which everything hinges even though she doesn’t know it yet. God’s Eye is my third A J Scudiere audiobook and I’m more impressed than ever with her writing skill. Her characters are interesting and her plots are thrilling. I’m also impressed with her range; she jumps from science fiction to crime fiction to fantasy with the ease and grace of a skilled acrobat and her sense of the suspenseful is uncanny. I also like the way Scudiere keeps the reader guessing. The two new men in Katherine’s life are Allistair and Zachary. She doesn’t know that one is a demon and one’s an angel, and Scudiere keeps us guessing as well as to which is which. At one moment it seems that Allistair is the angel, then the pendulum swings the other way. This type of misdirection is an old trick in fiction but Scudiere uses it well. I like the premise of this audiobook and there’s no question about Scudiere’s writing skill, but I have to admit I’m a little disappointed about how this one played out. This is really more a product of my own personal beliefs than through any fault of Scudiere. Would it really be that difficult to tell the difference between an angel and a demon? True, that old trickster satan is the master of lies and deceit and one of his minions could probably act the part of an angel convincingly enough to the unwary. In God’s Eye however, it’s difficult to tell the two apart because the angel acts more like a demon at times, seducing Kathering as quickly and easily as his counterpart. Add to that the frequent and unnecessary sex scenes and this audiobook, although well written, just didn’t work for me personally. As with the other two Scudiere audiobooks I listened to recently, God’s Eye is narrated by a full cast. I particularly enjoy this type of narration as it really helps to give each character his or her own defined persona. The cast of God’s Eye includes Stefan Rudnicki, Paul Boehmer, Joe Barrett, Clare Bloom, Cassandra Campbell, Cassandra De Cuir, Roxanne Hernandez, Arthur Morey, Heather Scott, Ted Scott, Dean Slyter, Judy Young, and Justine Eyre with special guest Ed Asner. Many of these names are familiar and a few are new to me but I think they were all well chosen for their roles and all did a good job with their characters. God’s Eye was not for me personally but I’ve no doubt this will appeal to a lot of people. Give it a listen and draw your own conclusions.

Scudiere is truly unlike anything that I have read before. It is a “Good vs. Evil” fight for one innocent and unknowing woman’s soul. Though I have read a large amount of paranormal and “Good vs. Evil” types of books, God’s Eye is told in a creative and very unique way. Two strange men suddenly show up in Katharine’s life; one as a neighbor in her building and the other an assistant at work. Strange things begin to happen to Katherine – most apparently the appearance of soot marks and strange animals that appear from nowhere. She feels an overwhelming chemistry and sexual attraction to both men and before Katherine knows it, she is having an affair with both of them. Caught in a web, she soon discovers that there is much more on the line than just figuring out which man she truly wants to be with. She learns that they are both in a battle for her soul and if she doesn’t figure out who is the “good” one and who is the “bad” one, her life will be doomed forever. While I greatly enjoyed God’s Eye, I wasn’t blown away. The story was unique and thought-provoking with several twists and turns, the characters were well written and the writing smooth. I really enjoyed the surprises throughout. I think that for me, the biggest drawback was just the continuous fight between the two male characters (Allistair and Zachary). Yes, the story is based on the pure vs. evil idea; however the story seemed to focus on these two constantly at war with one another. With that being said, I really like how the author brings to light a fight that wars within all of us. The choices we make within our lives, the ability to really and truly see truth and lies for what they are; to look deep, rather than just glancing our way through our life. Is this a book that I would recommend? Most definitely, yes. I think that those who enjoy paranormal, based on an age old world rivalry will fall right into the story. I look forward to reading more by this author in the future! Quote: The lures and traps were already out there and humans fell – willingly – into them. They tended to stay within the folds and even set out to display the riches of their association, going so far as to recruit others. No, there was no glory in capturing what threw itself into the boat. He needed to get one already devoted to the other side.

    Had I truly known more about God's Eye, I would not have read it. First, it was very dark and downright scary in some places. I can do creepy and have done it many times. The difference is that I knew I was going to the dark side. I did not come across that tidbit when I decided to read it. So I am telling potential readers upfront -- this is no paranormal romance about angels and demons. To be honest, I am not sure what it is, horror and mystery for sure but it's not being marketed that way. Bit Had I truly known more about God's Eye, I would not have read it.

To be honest, I am not sure what it is, horror and mystery for sure but it's not being marketed that way. Bitchin' aside, it was very well done. The story is told from third person which was a wise decision by the author. The heroine, Katharine is being tortured by events happening around her that she can't explain. She is having visitations by animals that disturb her sleep and disappear through the floors leaving only ash. Katharine is the kind of person that pays no attention to the world around her, she simply exist. So when her shallow uneventful life begins to unravel, she finds she is alone and unprepared. At the same time she begins to investigate the strange occurrences, she meets two beautiful men -- one being a new neighbor, Zachery and the other being a new colleague, Allistar. These men take her out of her comfort zone and begin to influence her quiet existence while keeping her in a sex-filled haze. No, this is not erotica but there is plenty of briefly described sex. As Katharine searches for the truth, she meets Margot a librarian who helps her decipher strange messages written on her mirror. The two figure out that these men are not human and that one is a demon seeking Katharine's soul. The story picks up the pace at this point but not by much. It moves very slowly but manages to pull the reader in. I did not figure out which was the good guy and which was the demon. The mystery was weaved so well, I could never truly decide. To me, that was the magic of the writing. A. J. Scudiere did an exceptional job of giving little hints but never enough to reveal the truth of who was what. The writing, plot development, and mythology make this a 5-star read for me. I am going with 4-stars because the book was just too long. I don't know what could have been edited but I feel that it could have been about 100 pages shorter. The length made the pacing too slow overall. None the less, this is a book I will remember.

I received this book via a GoodReads drawing and therefore didn't pay anything for it. Despite that kind consideration I'll give you my honest assessment as always. In general I find it rather distasteful to say much of anything about the plot but in this case I will make a very slight exception. At a very high level the book shows us a woman of privileged background who is being 'courted' by an angel and a demon come to Earth in human form and her choice of one of them will determine her eventual fate. The only reason this tidbit is at all important is to clarify for potential readers that this book is in no way a religious one. It deals with eternal moral questions but not in any way that's directly religious. Or, to put it more bluntly, at no time is the reader preached at. Not a religious book at all. Double preambles now complete, we get along to the assessment of the novel. Stylistically Scudiere's writing is very solid. Reading pace is swift and easy and the author's intent is clearly transmitted. The story is mildly cliche but it's rather impossible to be otherwise when dealing with any topic so basic. Overall I'd rate the book as mildly amusing but sadly not worth the time it took to consume it. The same story could be covered in half the time and deliver much more punch. Lastly, the novel's ending, after so much gritty darkness, is sappily and inanely sweet. When cutting the novel down to a reasonable size the first thing to be eliminated should be the last 30 pages. Editorially I think the book suffers from some unskillful excisions. In several places the text refers to past events that never occurred in a manner that makes me think we were supposed to know about them. I also wonder if the ending was cobbled on at the request of some early reviewer who thought the original ending too dark. In summary, this is a great idea for a story but there's just too much of it. At times the author's rendering of events is dramatic and gripping but one must tread water for far too long to get where the author's taking you.

Seriously! This book is about light and dark, good vs. evil with a touch of whodunnit. Our heroine, Katherine, is a pampered princess and company girl. Seeing her company is also the family biz, she is all about the job. She's been born and raised in the company business and expected to take it over one day. Her current job is in research and is anything but exciting until her father tells her about someone stealing money from the company and he wants her to investigate. He also wants her to use her new assistant , Allistair, to help her solve the crime seeing Allistair hasn't been with the company long enough to have been the culprit but the closer they work on the case, the closer their attaction grows. To complicate things further, she also has a brand new boyfriend, her sexy new neighbor, Zachary. Zachary also just came into her life. He's a drop dead sexy lawyer and can't get enough of her. Now if all that isn't enough for one woman to handle, she's also is having the freakiest things happen to her, lapses in time, weird words showing up on her bathroom mirror while she's showering, creatures breaking into her house and much, much more. God's Eye is not your normal PNR/UF. The book, even though there's romance elements, is more a morles book that will keep you thinking about your choices long after the book is over. It deals with corporate morals, personal morals, social morals, heaven and hell, true love and the supernatural. It's expertly told from Katherine's POV. When we first meet our heroine, she's a pampered corporate princess but as the story goes on, she completely does a 180 but not without sacrifices and hard choices. No one is safe when your very soul is on the line. If you love PNR/UF but want something a little deeper with strong values, give God's Eye a try.

And when she's pushed to her breaking point, will she be able to make the right choice and save her soul?[return][return]Review:[return] 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![return][return]Rating: On the Run (4.5/5)[return][return]*** I received this ARC from Griffyn Ink (JKS Communications) in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

Scudiere is about a privileged women who tries to make a stand. Katharine Geryon works for her father at a high-end investment firm. She always does what she is told and has impeccable manners. Well, until things start going bump in the night. Katharine starts to see and hear things in the middle of the night. A new hot lawyer moves in next door. She gets a tall, dark, and handsome assistant at work. Things are kind of chaotic. And it only gets more complicated when she starts dating her new neighbor, Zachary. She cannot deny her attraction to her new assistant, Allistair. And strange messages start to appear in her bathroom mirror. Maybe her new friend, Margot, can help? Katharine and Margot research the strange happenings and discover it's life or death. Which one will Katharine choose? I've read only a few other paranormal romance novels. One I hated and the other I loved, so I didn't know what to expect with God's Eye. But I enjoyed reading A.J. Scudiere's other books, so I had my hopes up. I really liked the story. A.J. Scudiere does a really good job at stringing the reader along. I didn't know who I sided with up until the last few pages. I couldn't tell who was the angel or the demon or if it even mattered. My brain wanted to help Katharine out like when you scream at the TV, "No, don't go in there!" I got so caught up in trying to help Katharine that by the time I read the last page I was about in tears. It felt like a Misery situation. If A.J. Scudiere killed the wrong character, I was going to lose it. So in one word the book is addicting. I just had to keep reading. It's also well written. I like her style. After having read three of her books I'd say she's in the top five of my best writers list. I have a list of King, Grisham, Koontz...you know, those guys. They are authors who you know will deliver.
