In The last installment of three. Behold the Eye: Veridia begins right where it's predecessor Behold the eye: Curulea leaves off. In this book we find a conclusion to the dream travel of Vickie at last.

As they leave Curulea, the land of blue eyes who can read minds, they travel onto Veridia the land of green eyes, where all the citizens are intensely connected to all wildlife. It is a world like none of the other books writer Veronica R. Tabares' has written, and fits fantastically to the other adventures she has her characters encounter along the way in their strange yet fascinating journey.

Veridia brings Tricia, Cathy, and Kathy, Vickie's best friends set their minds on finding a way to get Vickie back to them by dream travel. They are very focused on their goal and despite any dangers they might encounter are determined to prevail in their task! So much so that Tricia becomes stuck within the dream world as well posing yet another problem for the girls, how to release Tricia so they can find Vickie and take her back home where she belongs. Throughout the book, the reader sees the friendships of these girls grow tighter and tighter and leaves the reader with a feeling of satisfaction that these young girls have learned something many adults struggle with, the importance of friendship.

When Tricia is trapped, she too falls into a deep coma in her real world, leaving those who stand by her side, clueless as to what has happened, wondering if this could be part of a larger picture for both Vickie and Tricia. On the surface, everyone tries to bring Vickie and Tricia back but the reader knows that until they can escape the dream world, there is little hope of them returning.

Format: Hardcover
Behold the Eye: Viridia, the final installment of this very thrilling trilogy, is just as fantastic, suspenseful and wonderful as Behold the Eye: Braumaru and Cerulea! We open again with a letter to Vickie's local librarian, not only addressing this current book, but the previous two books and she explains her feelings regarding the last letters sent regarding this tale. The reader will find the Roland's daughter, Rhonda, is determined to find and assist her father, as feel victim to the very trap he had originally set for Vickie in the previous installment. However, not only is Roland stuck in this bizarre `dream house', but so is Tricia; Vickie's best and closest friend. The story is also peppered with articles regarding children that have mysteriously gone missing, to be explained later of course!

Now that Tricia is trapped, she has not yet figured out exactly what has happened is exactly what occurred to Vickie, and that there is more going on with her physical being. However, being the personality she is, she does not give up trying to get out of the `dream house' she is stuck in.

Back at home, Vickie's mother has connected with the one person that could help her and believe her regarding her daughter's disappearance. She finally has some hope to recover her lost daughter. Vickie's other two friends make the choice to discipline themselves to not just help the two friends, but themselves as they fear they can be next to suffer what they have witnessed with their group. However, as they practice `dream travel', they encounter Rhonda at the very `dream house' they expect to find their friend! The three then decide it would be best to work together to find their missing loved ones.

Format: Paperback
Vickie, Michah, and the other characters introduced in BRAUMARU and known better in CERULEA continue their adventures in this, the third and final book of the BEHOLD THE EYE series.

Vickie is still lost in Michah and Shanti's world. Her friends from home - Tricia, Karen, and Cathy - are determined to help Vickie find a way to return, but Tricia's determination has trapped her in the land of dreams.

Vickie, Michah, Shanti, and a new friend, Daffyd, travel to the land of Viridia, where they find the answers to their questions about dream travel and learn how to rescue Tricia and travel from one world to another. But the secrets of dream travel don't provide them with a way to get Vickie back home.

The characters learn more about themselves and what friendship and love mean as they seek answers and discover the powerful connection of family.

Like the first two books (BRAUMARU and CERULEA), VIRIDIA is told from many different points of view. The reader jumps from one character to the other as the story fluctuates between worlds on a journey to find answers and bring friends together.

VIRIDIA is Tabares' final book in the BEHOLD THE EYE trilogy, and brings Vickie's journey to a satisfactory conclusion.

Format: Hardcover
One friend (Vickie) had already disappeared after being in a coma, another (Tricia) was in a coma, while their friends Cathy and Karen had an idea of why and how they got there, they really wanted to know if they could get them back. Being struck in the dream world had not been part of the plan when Tricia had first attempted following Vickie, trying to saver had been. Vickie had made new friends with Micah and Shanti after they had played a part in rescuing her from the dream land and bringing her to this other world. Now they were trying to help her get home again. The lands that they had traveled through offered information at every turn. The brown-eyed people of Baraumaru offered premonitions, but nothing that foretold how to dream travel. The blue-eyed people of Cerulea with their Universities and their vast psychic abilities didn't know of the solution either. So, off to Viridia, the land of the green-eyed people, with their connection to every living thing, they were the last hope of finding a safe and sure way for Vickie to dream travel back to her own home.

Book 3 ..... A conclusion of sorts. The first book of this story is an introduction to the people, places and concept of the story. The second book is the action, suspense and the reasoning for the story. The third book, this book is the conclusion of the story. Not much else to it either. This was more difficult to read because of the repetitiveness of the whole thing. It also felt a little disjointed in places almost like there were pages out of order or missing. It was a mostly predictable ending and then there was the addition of chapter 24 - completely not necessary. The addition of the `newspaper articles' through out the book was confusing at first, but after finally realizing why they were there, the last chapter was redundant. I did like the story of dream travel to other worlds and the possibilities of being caught there without knowing how to go home again.
