Electing to risk transplant surgery before being forever trapped in blackness, what at first seemed to be a miraculous cure has turned into Joanna's worst nightmare.
Through her new eye, a dead man's eye, she is now able to see what others can't, an evil that resides within, an evil that is spreading. But what can one former photographer do to stand up against the powers of hell? Will Joanna be able to find help before it's too late? Or will the legions of hell claim her first.
Dead Man's Eye is a novella in the horror/thriller genre. Joanna Raines has Fuchs' corneal dystrophy and received a transplant in one eye. While still in the healing stages, she is witness to a terrible accident and begins seeing what appear to be dark corona-like shadows around the victim.
Afraid that she is going crazy, she is reluctant to seek treatment, but when the shadows turn out to be something other, something evil, she can no longer stand idly by.
Author Shaun Jeffrey has written a dark and brilliant novella. The author has a very smooth quality to his writing which offers a nice contrast to the subject matter. While only a short narrative, there is enough substance to the plot to make this story feel complete. And it is the author's ability to really paint a picture with his words that elevates this from being just another horror story.
From the very first line, the writing captivates:
Joanna Raines looked at the world through a dead man's eye.
On a personal note:
I was pleasantly surprised by this book.Read more ›
I enjoyed the concept of this story right from the product description and almost bought it without reading a sample. I then one-clicked it before finishing the sample and almost could not put it down. It truly was a fun read.
But I couldn't give it a 5 because the writing is somewhat, I don't want to say immature, maybe unpolished? Like a really good story from a college student. I also disliked the many short chapters which I suspect added to the amateur feel.
I was going to give it 4 though, because I really did like it. However the quality dipped a bit at the end there when characters got really dumb. What was the point of Margaret? Why did Joanna give up so easily with her? Why did Stephen sudden become so agressive with the priest which was out of character for him?
***Specific Spoiler Alert***
Why did Malachi stick around in Lincoln's body?What was so special about it when it had two major weaknesses, a host and a missing arm?
And bits of the final chapter make absolutely no sense considering that at the end of the chapter before, Lincoln destroys them all. Though I really like where Joanna ends up because it makes sense.
Shaun Jeffrey is a really promising author and I fully intend to check out his other work.
As the story begins, you find out the main character has had an eye transplant, and as she's heading to the doctor to get it checked out, something happens, and a man loses his arm. That's when she starts seeing things, dark shadows that seem to be possessing people. No one seems to believe her, so she's at a loss as to what to do next. As the story continues, things get progressively worse.
I liked the story, I liked how it unfolded and all that happened. I liked the ways in which other characters were brought into the story, and I really like how the ending could go either way. It has a clear ending but there's definitely room for a sequel. Highly recommended.
