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 ›
Rating: 4 of 5
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 ›
1: Characters are well developed and introduced I felt that they all had different facets to them. You get a sense of who they are and what they stand for from the get go in a very organic and believable way. How they act in the story is true to how you believe they would act if you knew them. You don't get that whole jarring moment of weird behavior that is only in there to move the story. Instead you get a delightful cast of believable characters who talk and act like real people. This is so well done that I have to add that even the cliche ones like the old vampire come off as real people not walking robots bent on dominance.
2: Editing was good I did not notice anything to throw me off but in reviews this is not my strong point.
3: Plot was tight with no side trips. The story told a story with the action moving the plot along you do not get that pointless side trip that adds nothing to the story.
4: Good action it was believable in the sense that this is the first book and I could see how the MC would react in that way.
5: The characters in this are smart they sometimes make mistakes but not in a stupid way just in a well this is probably the lesser of the evils at this time.
6: The world was both believable and fun to learn about who would of thought that supernaturals would get together for mutual support.Read more ›

The book was basically ok. It could have done without the sex scenes. The author really needs to hire a good editor to clean up several discrepancies. Read morePublished on December 1, 2013 by Iqueno
