The main character is not the usual hard assed know it all that is prevalent in so many urban fantasies that are flooding the market today,but neither is she the weak willed whiner that make up most of the other half of the genera.Jazz is a very relate-able person. So many of her reactions I found myself chuckling over because either I or my best friend would have done exactly the same thing. I was laughing out loud when she's riding to the hospital, she starts freaking out that she has boobs now and the EMT guy asks her if she's hitting on him. Ahh classic. Her friend's reaction to the unveiling of what she was, made me smile. I couldn't put it better myself when Tammy tells her "Hey what kind of friend would I be if I ran scared just because you get hairy once a month?"
Jazz has just enough spunk to not be a door mat, but she is realistic enough to know when she is completely out of her depth. As a side note some people will probably think me a prude for stating this, but hey here it is. I was glad that she didn't just hop into bed with her guy right off the bat. They took the time to let the chemistry build... OK OK she definitely gets kudos for waiting when she had a HOT Cajun dancing attendance. WhooH! Spray me down with cold water. The only thing hotter than a man with a Cajun accent is a man with an Irish or Scottish accent. (You can't see me but I'm drooling) ;)
I liked the world that the author built. It wasn't too fantastic that you're sitting there going OMG really? I liked the Technomancer, it was quite nifty. Over all Thumbs up. Great Job.Read more ›

Author: J.K Walker
Format: Kindle, Paperback
Waking up naked lying covered in leaves in the middle of the forest, Jamine (Jazz) Bedeau, struggles with foggy memories from the night before. How had she gotten here? Local law enforcement wonder the same thing as she quickly learns that the boy she was with is found dead supposedly slain by some type of large predator. But soon Jazz learns the awful truth - she had killed him - but not as herself. Something was a part of her she had not know of before and didn't want to admit. Without any parents or family to turn to, Jazz is lost until she is contacted by others like her. Unfortunately, they are not all friendly, and Jazz finds her friends and herself in mortal danger.
In a young adult market full of vampire novels, J.K. Walker's "Glacial Eyes" is a nice change of pace in the paranormal teenage category. Told in first person from Jazz's perspective, I enjoyed her as a protagonist. She is thoughtful, humble, powerful, but emotionally damaged given her difficult past. While not nearly as dark as the Hunger Games, Jazz has traits reminiscent of Katniss Everdeen which is high praise in my book. Walker's writing style is crisp and engaging and his characters pop off the page. If I have any compliant at all, it is Jazz's main love interest - Logan. I liked his character, but I found his accent distracted me from the story instead of pulling me into it.
Overall, I found myself stealing moments throughout the day in order to finish another chapter and very much enjoyed this guilty pleasure read.Read more ›
Glacial Eyes is an urban fantasy tale about Jasmine, a young woman/snow leopard who attends the University of Utah. Okay, Salt Lake only loosely qualifies as "urban," and a lot of the action takes place in Ivins, Utah. Stop being so picky. The supernaturals hide themselves well enough that Jasmine -- who is herself a wereleopard -- is unaware of their existence until shortly after her own powers manifest, and she accidentally kills a fellow student who slipped her a roofie and tried to assault her. The other supernaturals (vampires, werewolves, were-leopards, kitsune, and witches) put her on trial, but let her off with a very strict warning: learn to control your powers, or we have to kill you. Nothing personal, mind you.
The trial isn't all bad. She meets a few new people there who will eventually become her friends: David (a werewolf) and Rachel (a techno-geek witch). Logan (a gorgeous half vampire who drives a motorcycle and has a band, which quite honestly beats the "reader should think he's sexy" message half to death) gives her a ride home from the trial. They stop to forage at Denny's -- to be clear, they forage in the "order a Grand Slam" sense; waitresses are off the menu -- and they find themselves dating.
She begins taking lessons with the local werewolf pack, which leads to the gruesome death of a fluffy bunny. The supernatural government also assigns her jobs, the first of which takes her on a road trip to Southern Utah. Unbeknownst to her, a killer is targeting supernaturals in the area, and the killer follows her back to Salt Lake.Read more ›
