God's Eye by A.J. Scudiere REVIEW

God's Eye by A.J. Scudiere

Egalley thanks to Griffyn Ink

Synopsis from Goodreads
Katharine Geryon is living the life her family name has dictated, and why not? After all, it has given her a good job in the family company and a fine life with all the things she should want. But all that changes as increasingly disturbing events begin to occur: soot stains on the carpet, glimpses of strange black animals, and cryptic messages written on her bathroom mirror. Baffled and afraid, Katharine begins to doubt her own sanity.

At the same time, two charismatic men enter her life: Allistair, her new assistant at work, and Zachary, a well-heeled neighbor who just moved into her building. Katharine soon finds each of them inextricably entangled in her affairs. As her life becomes stranger and her dreams more terrifying, she realizes neither man is what he seems and that she's caught in something far beyond her own comprehension. For the first time, she must reach beyond her own boundaries. There Katharine forges her first true friendship with Margot, a librarian who helps her discover what these men really are, why she's drawn to them, and what they want with her.

The answer places Katharine in the middle of a fierce battle that forces her to decide between the two men fighting for her soul.

In the end, only one can be saved, but all three will be judged.

I hope you downloaded this book when it was offered as a free read on Amazon. No? It's still under £2 on Kindle, so I suggest you buy it, because God's Eye is amazing.

Not for the faint-hearted or impatient readers, this is a slow, fascinating unravelling of one woman, who is forced to question everything she lives for and finds herself wanting.

There is an angel and a demon in her life battling for her soul, but like me you would never guess who is who. You are constantly forced to doubt their every motive and change your mind and second guess yourself, A.J.Scudiere is that good.

God's Eye is a creepy, unexpectedly steamy and deeply mysterious read, and it drives its point home perfectly: we can not compromise and simply go with the flow if we are not happy with our life choices, we have to fight for what we think is right.

The angels and demons are not as visual as we're used to in paranormals, but more elusive, haunting, metaphysical beings. This book is a puzzle, and I'm still not sure what I got in the end out of it, but I know for sure that the impact was profound. I had to sit down and digest it. Not many books do that to me anymore.

Overall, highly recommended.

Неожиданно превосходная книга из разряда метафизики, книга, которая заставляет задуматься, что сейчас в литературе случается очень редко.

Катарина - дочка богатых родителей, работающая на инвестиционную компанию своего отца и дрейфующая по жизни как айсберг, холодный, неизменный и одинокий. Только вот всё меняется когда за её душу начинают бороться ангел и демон.

Глаз Божий - это книга о женщине, которая медленно просыпается и понимает, что она недовольна своей жизнью, что  она несчастлива, и что в её силах всё изменить.

Кто ангел, а кто демон - понять совершенно невозможно, и даже сейчас я не уверена на 100% кто есть кто. Здесь нет явной визуализации паранормальных романов - зато полно мистики, мифов и холодка по коже. В книге даже довольно много горячих сцен, но опять же их тон не соответствует стандартам паранормального романа, к которым мы привыкли.

В итоге, остаётся ощущение глубины, и ум пытается осознать что же сейчас произошло и всё это переварить. Книга со своим своебразным, неспешным слогом не придётся по вкусу каждому, но я от неё в совершенном восторге. Очень рекомендую.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
