My Thoughts - 3 out of 5 Unicorns - I liked it!!!

Eyes Deep: A Clandestine Daze Novella - Tim Marquitz

 

***Received a copy of the ebook for an honest review

 

The cover sort of reminds you of old world mob.  Of course, that really has nothing to do with the story just the vibe it gives me :)

 

This is a novella and the first & only book in this series at the moment.  This is not the type of book I usually read.  In this book there are no clear lines of good and evil, only bad and less bad, and even then I’m not sure if the ones I think are less bad are really the really bad as this was a novella.  I only have a small reference of this world to go on.  It is well written, and you can definitely imagine the story as you go which was a very different picture in my head from my usual stories.

 

I really torn with this book because I know I liked it, but it was like driving by an accident, and you can’t take your eyes off it.  While I don’t think this is considered a horror, it does have a lot of seamy underbelly feeling to its characters.  The main character is a shifter or sorts, but it happens sort of grossly.  I won’t say more than that because you have to read to see :)  Jace is another character who is fierce, but emotionless and she is definitely a shifter.

 

I think this book definitely appeals more to fans of books who do not want good guys or happily ever afters.  I definitely think I’m going to check out more of Tim’s work in the future (though not the ones deemed full fledged horror) to see if this is something I might like on occasion for a vacation from YA or paranormal romance :)
