Very well written. The flashbacks flow seamlessly with the rest of the story. I learned so many things I never knew about the Hope Diamond and couldn't help but fall in love with the characters and their personal histories that play such an important part of the story.
I love how the author brought so many different elements to the book. Romance, mystery, suspense and the hurts that we all have experienced in life. If you enjoy a good suspenseful novel, then this is the one for you!
These are the thinnest of characters, plucky, beautiful heroine, all vulnerable and yet brilliant, like the gem over which she obsesses. Some very strange father issues, ones that take a highly predictable turn in the latter stages. The bad guys are thoroughly bad, with of course the exception of the roguish anti hero, whose redemption is so far fetched that it requires a massive suspension of disbelief, not even taken in for questioning?). The supporting cast are threadbare thin, pompous boss, angry, former military security chief who seems promising, but is confounded at every turn and eventually seems to evaporate, old, but thin, fit and still really quite attractive elederly couple who make coffee and dispense hugs. We have seen these people hundreds of times in books and on TV, rarely in real life.
The sub story of the Hope diamond was like the Lifetime channel dramatised the Wikipedia Hope Diamond entry. The diamond apparently is flawless, the same cannot be said of the story.
Did not realize that it was supposed to be Christian literature, not even sure what that means. It barely counts as literature. This review sounds mean spirited, and it is not meant to be, it is just not a very gripping book in my opinion, I will try this author again, maybe future plots will have a bit more muscle
I am very cynical about Christian fiction, rarely have I found them worth the time to read, they also have a tendency to become preachy or heavily reliant on throwing about the name of Jesus or stretching Christian symbolism beyond the breaking point to fit the plot. Eye of the god did none of these things. It was consistently honest in portraying the thoughts and emotions of the characters.
As hinted at the end of the book I am looking forward to the sequel(s).
Abby is in charge of the fund raising gala with the Hope Diamond as the centerpiece. Alex poses as a journalist and gets close enough to Abby to place a bug on her so that he and Isaac can listen in on discussions about security arrangements. As he gets closer to Abby, his emotions get entangled for the first time with a mark although he intends to go through with the theft. The theft will be easier because at the last moment it is decided Abby will be wearing the Hope Diamond. When she asks her father for help in recovering it, he dismisses her as he had all his life. She learns Alex betrayed her, but though hurt remains resolute to recover what belongs to the Smithsonian.
This is an exhilarating inspiring thriller starring a heroine who never received her father's affection as a child or an adult yet still covets it and reaches out to him knowing the rejection is coming. Alex gets passed her mental defense mechanisms playing on her need to be loved; his betrayal rips her heart as like her father he affirms men don't care though he feels remorse and regret. Filled with action on three continents, EYE OF THE GOD is a riveting fast-paced thriller, but it is Abby in spite of another let down by a man remains filled with hope who makes Ariel Allison's tale a super read.
