Review

"I couldn't stop reading -- will have you leaving the lights on when you go to sleep." --USA Today bestselling author Carrie Vaughn

“Brings urban fantasy to a new level. Heartbreaking, deeply insightful, powerful, and genuinely thrilling. Joe Nassise has just raised the bar for the whole genre.” —Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestseller of The Dragon Factory

“A great read and unlike almost anything else I’ve read in urban fantasy: It’s hard-boiled and dark, definitely its own beast. Damn, this man can write! I’ll be standing in line for book two.” —Kat Richardson, bestselling author of the Greywalker series

"Gritty, grim, yet surprisingly personal and poetic, Eyes to See is like nothing else in its field.  Make time for this one." —Seanan McGuire, NY Times bestselling author of October Days

“At last—something new under the urban fantasy moon. Nassise's visceral prose and dark, gritty settings propel the blind Hunt and his unique ghostly companions, Whisper and Scream, through an urban nightmare where nothing is what it seems.” —F. Paul Wilson, NY Times beselling author

“Joe Nassise's driven, sardonic hero Jeremiah Hunt sees a whole lot more than dead people in Eyes to See.  Vividly set in Boston, the novel follows Hunt through a labyrinth of undead dangers and unexpected emotion as he seeks his missing daughter and finds an unearthly serial killer. The climax, both thrilling and moving, will stick with you.” —Alex Bledsoe, author of The Girls with Games of Blood and Burn Me Deadly

From the Inside Flap

"Nassise's clean, lean writing style heightens the brisk pace of the novel, keeping events clearly focused even as they barrel along towards the novel's conclusion...sure to delight and intrigue his growing number of fans." -- Cemetery Dance Magazine

The back of EYES TO SEE promises a lot. A scary, thrilling, dark urban fantasy novel that will leave you wanting the lights on while you sleep. For me, it didn't quite reach that level. With 275 pages of buildup to a climax that was extremely convenient, EYES TO SEE doesn't live up to the aspirations I had for it when going in. It's a decent beginning to a new urban fantasy series for adults, particularly fans of THE DRESDEN FILES and CSI, but it could have been so much better.

EYES TO SEE is the story of a former Harvard classics professor named Jeremiah Hunt whose daughter is kidnapped without a trace. His wife leaves him, he loses himself in the process, and he finally performs a ritual that allows him to gain the ability to see ghosts, among other supernatural beings that inhabit Boston. The goal is simple - he wants to find his daughter. Five years have passed since she went missing, and a string of murders has given him the break he needs to find the killer. Except now he needs help.

The biggest asset of this novel is great world-building. From ghosts to witches to Norse legends, everything is covered, and it's covered well. Nassise's imagination is given a chance to flourish here, combining together myths, legends, and real stories well to create a

For the first 275 pages, the story is fine. It moves along at a nice rate, there is plenty of interesting world-building to keep you enticed, and there is nothing particularly wrong about this. Yes, the narrator can be hard to connect with (his daughter's disappearance made him almost insane), and the POV changes did throw me off a bit. The story switches between first person past in the now and in the past, in addition to third person POVs from the villain and two other characters.

Eyes To See is the first book in an intriguing new series by Joseph Nassise (author of the Templar Chronicles) and is a great little mix of paranormal and noir fiction. In order to find his missing daughter, scholar Jeremiah Hunt gave up his eyes in exchange for a new vision that allows him to see through the eyes of the dead and other demonic forces. He finances his continued search for his daughter by hiring out as a ghost banisher and moonlighting with the Boston Police Department as a consultant.

The book opens up with an interesting glimpse into Jeremiah's life as he arrives at a potential client's house. Nassise does a good job of showing how vulnerable a blind man is in today's world if people decide to take advantage of him, and depicting the fact that Jeremiah at this stage of his life is not a nice guy. He's totally focused on finding his daughter and only puts up with others if they're going to help him achieve that goal.

Nassise also builds his world of darkness and light really well, then fills it with all manner of monsters. The author is really good at pacing and atmosphere, and I felt as trapped in the pages as Jeremiah felt in the search for his missing child. I couldn't help but keep pressing on, watching as the stakes mounted and the odds against Jeremiah intensified.

Boston comes alive on the pages too. I felt the city and its shadows all around me as I chased after Jeremiah and peeked over his shoulder at all the ghosts and monsters he confronted during his various caseloads. Nassise has a nice mix of people who know about that dark world hidden from the view of most humans, and of people who think Jeremiah just has "special" powers, not a front row seat at the various circles of Hell.

The overall premise of the book may put some readers in the mind of Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden series, but this trilogy promises to be a lot darker and more somber.

In Eyes to See, there are a lot of things Nassise does right. The choice of first person POV is one of them, since getting into Jeremiah Hunt's head is the bread and butter of this story. I really liked his voice, his struggles, and his humor. The POV does change near the end quite often, which I thought disrupted my enjoyment a little. I often preferred seeing things (no pun intended) through Jeremiah's perspective, since his was unique. He traded his eyesight of the normal world in return to see that of the other world, the one where all the ghosts and creatures we only heard stories about are. Eyes to See takes place in the past and present distinguished by "Then" and "Now" chapters, one telling the story of how Jeremiah came to be in this place, when his daughter went missing years before. The other is the present time while he is working as an exorcist while also helping the police solve crimes while hopping for more information about his daughter's disappearance. I really liked the "Then" chapters, since they were so heartbreaking, raw and real.

Another aspect I thought was done well was the mystery. I really didn't know what to expect at the end, and that kept me reading. I wanted Jeremiah to succeed in solving the mystery of his missing daughter. Along the way we discover more things about this world, which is a pretty standard urban fantasy setting. It contains magic and various paranormal creatures. Unfortunately I thought Jeremiah to be the most interesting because we knew more about why he came to be what he is.

Where the book faltered for me was finding enough interest in this world. While I thought there were unique ideas and a good protagonist, I wanted the other characters and world building to be stronger.
