I read a lot, and there's somthing to be said, about a book that isn't predictable. This one was a page turner with a compelling story and fairly interesting characters. It's gritty but not overdone. I recommend it.

Eyes to See by Joseph Nassise Urban fantasy at it's best, this book will make you pause the next time you hear a bump in the night. Nassise has created a bold new protagonist in Jeremiah Hunt. Hunt is on an emotional quest which forces him to interact with Whisper and Scream. Whisper and Scream are ghosts. In addition his crusty emotional shell is attacked by Denise a witch. Hunt's quest is impacted by that actions of a supernatural serial killer and a time capsule of occult nature. The action is outstanding as are the characterizations. You can feel Jeremiah's pain and frustration, Nassise does that good of a job. I hesitate to mention Jim Butcher because the premise is just vaguely similar but the addictive quality of the story is far more so. I am pleased to see that this book is quantified as number one in a series. I, for one, am a new committed fan and will hopefully be reading and reviewing more of this prolific urban fantasy author's work. I really enjoyed this book. I highly recommend the book.

Great Story With Amazing Characters! Just finished Eyes to See and it totally blew my mind! The best fiction I've read, I mean listened to, in a long, long time! Seriously good! Listen, I love Harry Dresden and Odd Thomas, great stories, awesome characters, but Jeremiah Hunt is by far the most awesome protag I've read in that genre. Or any. He's like Odd and Harry's older, much cooler brother. Highly recommended!

Eyes to See is the first in the Jeremiah Hunt series written by Joseph Nassise. Jeremiah Hunt’s daughter was kidnapped 5 years ago. He has spent those 5 years doing everything he can to find her. This includes some very unusual actions. One such action took his normal sight but left him with special sight that allows him to see things everyone else can’t see. This is his story. Cleverly told by mixing flashbacks, self-reflection, and a narrative of current events, we find out how he came to be where he is. Along the way he connects with a police detective who asks him in on special cases. Jeremiah also manages, much against his wish, to become friends with two others who have special abilities. This is not a fast story. Jeremiah spends much of his time alone and his narrative fills this alone time. It is a very interesting book, though. I found it engrossing and had a hard time putting it down. I’d recommend this book for adults, and young adults, who like horror stories that include ghosts, demons, witches, shape shifters and more.

This book kept me reading the way Joseph Nassise tells the story is truly amazing because he knows how to keep you clued to the book dying to know what's going to happen next. I felt everything Jeremiah hunt felt like if it was happening to me !. I'm a mother so the pain this character felt not knowing what happened to his daughter seem unbearable to me . READ IT you wont regret it. I admit somethings threw me off because i went in thinking the book was about this man that was suffering because is daughter was missing, I knew he had the gift or curse of seeing what other can't and then i was surprise to find out he wasn't the only one. I quickly adjusted and at the end it made the book a lot more interesting then i could've possibly imagined. My boyfriend bought this book and He became a Joseph Nassise book we both can't wait for the second part of this book !!

Eyes to See by Joseph Nassise is an urban fantasy novel about a man, Jeremiah Hunt, who is on a quest to find his missing daughter. When all roads of discovery lead to a dead end, Jeremiah gives up his eyesight so that he might see things beyond what normal people might see. His life is in shambles and everything around him falls apart. Jeremiah takes up some PI work. While helping the local police investigate a crime he stumbles across a clue that might lead him to his daughter. This new clue leads Jeremiah on a chase and he starts to uncover something more sinister than just a random kidnapping. I wasn't sure what to expect when I first picked up this novel. The concept sounded really interesting but I wasn't sure if this book was going to make me want to sleep with all the lights on. It didn't take me very long before I was invested in the story. One of the many things I like about this book is that Nassise divides the chapters into "Now" and "Then" The author gives glimpses into the past to help the reader understand what has led Jeremiah Hunt to where he is now. I really like the range and depth of emotions the author gives Jeremiah. It seems like everyday on the news you hear about someone's missing child. It's every parents worst fear. The author really digs down and explores the tenacity of the emotions that parents must experience in these situations. How obsession and compulsion can lead you down a dangerous path. Jeremiah is a man with nothing left to lose. However his drive to find his daughter is inspiring. He's rough around the edges, stubborn but really he's just a man who would do anything to get his daughter back. The story line in this book is really interesting. Nassise kept me intrigued chapter after chapter. The author has created a world that is full of interesting characters along with frightening creatures. This novel in a way took on a detective vibe but I like it. In my mind I was picturing Jeremiah Hunt as a bit of a film noir character. The ending of this book really pulled at my heart strings. I won't tell you any details, but it was really touching. Overall this is a good read. I really like the story and I'll definitely continue reading this series. It has suspense, drama and things that go bump in the night. The next book in this series is King of the Dead.

Ok, but not good. Huge plot holes, and very derivative. The harmonica to direct the ghosts came straight from Mike Carey. Some word choices are simply incorrect, and character behavior is frequent,y implausible. For some reason, the author thinks getting tattoos is a side effect of letting your personal hygiene deteriorate in the wake of a tragedy. The man he attempts to depict wou,d not have detoured from his quest in order to get something that purely caters to ego. I kept waiting to read that the tattoos were part of the ritual that took his eyes or could in any reasonable way be explained, but, nope, apparently he just had to have a moment of adolescent rebellion during his search for his daughter. Worst of all, I had no real feeling for these cardboard characters. It's the authors job to make me care about them, and in this he failed miserably.

In the first few chapters I was sufficiently creeped out and it happened a few more times throughout the story. Eyes To See is an urban fantasy on the dark side, the very dark side. The story flows back and forth between the past and present showing us what led up to Hunt losing his daughter and his eye sight. Hunt finds help in unlikely characters and in a situation I¿ve never read about before. The story is fresh, the details disgusting (in a good way), and it¿s more than just your normal fantasy. However, there wasn¿t anything that gripped me or pulled me in and made me eager to finish the story. I wish that there would have been more to care about ¿ even though there was a missing child ¿ the emotional pull wasn¿t there. For those looking strictly for a dark read, it will satisfy!

Harvard classics Professor Dr. Jeremiah Hunt knows his idyllic life ended the day his beloved daughter Elizabeth playing in her room in their Boston home was abducted. Jeremiah remains obsessed with finding her while the cops led by diligent homicide detective Miles Stanton declare the case cold; he watches his marriage and job implode. Desperate, he tries an arcane ritual that leaves him blind but enables him to see inside the realm of absolute darkness where ghosts and other evil supernatural entities thrive. Additionally Jeremiah delineates the genuine gifted from the con artists. Stanton believes the Elizabeth kidnapping and the ritual have made Hunt a psychic. He employs the professor on strange cases. His current murder inquiry involves a person left dead in a ritual pose, but no cause of death surfaces; the walls of the murder scene contain words and symbols from arcane languages. When a second similar murder occurs, Hunt sees a pattern, but knows he needs help. The professor asks pub owner Dmitri Alexandrov and the witch Denise Clearwater to assist him. The trio identifies serial killing going back many years as something malevolent that has a master plan involving Hunt. Eyes to See is an intriguing fascinating investigative urban fantasy starring an interesting protagonist who cannot see what others see but sees what they cannot. Filled with increasingly tense horror, the hero stays anchored by his determination to find Elizabeth. Although there is too much external description of what Hunt's eyes fail to see that never quire seems to fit inside the prime story line of what he acts on what he does see, fans will appreciate this strong paranormal thriller.

I liked the premise of this book, and it was interesting to read the Then and Now segments throughout the book that gradually explained how Jeremiah Hunt came to be the person he is. My biggest dislike of this book is the choppy, sometimes seemingly unrelated twists the story takes. Events often occur with little or no setup between them, and although it may be intentional on the author's part to make the character's journey more haphazard, I do not like it. For example, Hunt uses the harmonica at one point in the beginning to snare a ghost, but near the end, it seems more like he is a harmonica virtuoso in the way he uses the instrument to create a new song. Who knew he could play the harmonica so well? I never would have guessed. I also dislike that some events are explained in a few sentences. For example, my personal hated phrase, which usually reads like, "we explained the entire situation to them" happens a few times in the book, and it generalizes a conversation that would be important to the characters. It takes away life from the story to be so non-descriptive. I am giving this book 3 stars because I liked the genre, and overall, it was a decent book. But it is more like a 2 1/2 star book, just because of the writing. Apparently, Jeremiah Hunt will be appearing in another story. Considering how this book ended, it MIGHT be interesting to see what happens then, if the author's writing improves.
