The eyes have it
Eyes of Ember by Rebecca Ethington
Joclyn is in hiding, hunted by the man she still desperately loves. Ryland is gone, his mind erased, no memory of Joclyn remains. But, Joclyn’s heart desperately begs her to hold out hope. While, in reality the black eyed monster that possesses him, attempts to kill her over and over.
If it wasn’t for Ilyan, Joclyn would be dead by now.
Ilyan. The man who once stalked her, is now Joclyn’s protector, the only thing she has left. He protects Joclyn from the men who seek to end her life, and while she is haunted by dreams where Ryland begs her to break the bond between them.
Ilyan is there. Always there.
Ilyan trains and prepares her, teaching her everything she needs to know in the hope that one day she can avenge Ryland, if not protect herself from him.
And then there is her father.
The man who has never been there, is suddenly responsible for everything. And who he is has made Joclyn into something she never wanted to be.
Rate & take
I just had to continue on in this series and I got rewarded with an enjoyable read for my efforts. I will say there was a small section that drove me a little nuts though....the main female character was told she had to have something revealed to her, then was told she wasn't ready to hear it...a lot...and when they finally said she was ready she wasn't sure she wanted to hear it. This felt like it played out over a few weeks but I was shocked to learn it was only three days in the story. When the big reveal did happen it was something I had already suspected anyway. I was undaunted and read on to some really great scenes that even had me a bit scare/creeped out. So dear reader just know that as soon as I finish writing this review I will crack open (turn on) book three....once I finish reading that I will have to wait, for who knows how long to get my next fix of the story. ;-(
