Around the world, people die under mysterious circumstances. Each branded with an arcane sign, they are pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. When more people are missing, with similar signs appearing in and around their homes, Jason, an average New Yorker, realizes the victims are a riddle addressed to him. He is the final piece. Emily appears, the most beautiful woman with extraordinary powers and startling amber eyes, and tells Jason that powers dormant within him are about to wake. In the world of Light- and Darksighted, he is the only person who can prevent Darkness from enslaving the world. He is the Beholder whose advent has been awaited for many years. Setting out on a journey with Emily, Jason discovers many improbable things like Sight, Soulfusion, the Hall of Refuge, but the greatest surprise arrives the moment he realizes he has fallen in love with Emily.
Review by Lissa:
When I first started reading, I was a little confused as to what was going on. I guess I felt just like Jason Walker, learning everything about this world and who he was going to be. As I got further into it, it left me intrigued and wanted to know more.
The cast of Characters were very well done. I had a lot of questions throughout but they were answered in the end and it totally made sense.
I did love the relationship of Emily and Jason. I was saddened by what happened but I'm hoping the sequel will change that.
If you are looking for a lot of action, there is plenty. There is love, there is evil and you'll want to finish. This is a good paranormal read.
