Book Description

1 April 2011 Dirk & Steele Novels

“Anyone who loves my work should love [Liu’s].”
—Christine Feehan

Eye of Heaven is yet another dark and sensuous romantic winner from the extraordinary Marjorie M. Lui, arguably one of the boldest, most inventively original authors currently working in the paranormal romance field. Centered once again around the remarkable Dirk and Steele Detective Agency—with its shapeshifters, psychics, telekinetics, and others with astounding  supernatural gifts—Eye of Heaven brings a tormented investigator to “Sin City” Las Vegas, where a beautiful, feral headliner needs protection from a terrible darkness that is threatening her world. A passionate tale of romance, mystery, danger, and otherworldly occurrences, this is Marjorie M. Liu at her finest—and further proof that, “If you have yet to add Liu to your must-read list, you’re doing yourself a disservice” (Booklist).

Product Description

From the Back Cover

Like every member of the Dirk & Steele Agency, Blue Perrineau is far from "normal"—and he believes in the organization's creed: Protect the innocent in secrecy. Now an obligation to the family that rejected him is leading Blue into the light and shadow of Sin City . . . and to a remarkable woman, beautiful, desirable, and untamed.

Iris is a headliner in Vegas, dazzling crowds with her feral sensuality and her uncanny affinity for dangerous beasts. But there is a darkness in her world that she never knew existed, and a champion has appeared to protect her—a man charged with electricity, who guards a secret as strange and powerful as her own. And every secret is a liability when darkest evil exists that follows no rule under heaven. Yet with passion and love sustaining them, together Blue and Iris might yet live to see the dawn.

5.0 out of 5 stars A thrilling romance 11 Dec 2006
By Book Addict TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Blue, a member of the unusual "Dirk and Steele" detective agency carries two secrets; his ability to manipulate electricity to such a degree he can stop a heart beat with a thought, and his relationship with his estranged father, the wealthy and powerful philanthropist Felix Perrineau, a man he grew up to despise. Flying back to the States after sustaining an injury whilst investigating organ trafficking, Blue finds himself blackmailed by his father after Felix reveals he holds proof of not only Blue's strange ability, but those of other "Dirk and Steele" employees. Given a tight time frame, Blue finds himself reluctantly agreeing to find his missing younger sibling; a half-brother he has never met. Closely acquainted with other psychics, it doesn't take long for Blue to track his brother Daniel to a circus currently performing in Las Vegas; however he receives no warning of the resident lion tamer, a gold eyed red head whose unusual eyes immediately announce her as a shape shifter to those in the know.

When Iris is nearly shot after another "cat-knapping" attempt by the local wild life brigade, she finds herself saved by Blue; a man she is immediately attracted to despite knowing her ability to shift into a leopard makes any relationship difficult. Hiding in the open, the majority of her audience remain convinced her affinity to her wild cats is just uncanny or down to good training; however someone else knows the truth and feels confident that a bite from Iris would enable him to shape shift himself. This man; Santosa Rahardjo is also deeply involved with the sex slave industry and organ trafficking trade Blue was investigating in Indonesia before a mysterious beautiful blonde tried to kill him.

4.0 out of 5 stars Would've liked to rate it better. 6 Nov 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
M liu is a great new author. i like her books, very creative. the story lines are good, it is definately not a stand alone book, as more often that not past charectors pop up and to know their indivial special powers you need to read the previous books in the series.I was blown away by the first in the series, tiger eye, however as each book progressed it went slightly down hill, more thought was given to locations and descriptions than to the actual progression of the charectors. the coupling scenes were bland and non descriptive, lacked any fireworks, so it made it hard to believe they were in love after so short a time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievably mesmerizing and hard to put down 26 Nov 2006
By Neilisa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The main plot to Eye of Heaven starts out as several subplots that are neatly woven as one by the time you get to the middle of the story. Blue, a member of the Dirk & Steele agency is on the hunt for an evil and powerful man. Santoso is the most powerful figure in the Indonesian underworld. He peddles young girls and boys to his powerful and influential friends and has his hand in just about every illegal activity going on in that part of the world. Before Blue can get close to him, however, an assassin is sent to kill him and nearly succeeds in her mission. The agency quickly moves in and wisks Blue out of Jakarta so he can recover.

While he is recuperating, Blue gets word that his father has died and that he's summoned home. The news was false but his father is dying and demands that Blue try to locate his brother. With access to gifted friends, Blue finds his brother working as part of a circus crew, and this is where he meets Iris.

Iris is a shape shifter and all alone in the world. The one person whom Iris loved and trusted has disappeared and all she has left are her cats. Blue and Iris' attraction to each other is explosive. Despite their reservations, they are drawn to each other. Unfortunately, so is Blue's brother. But Blue soon has bigger problems to solve: There is a mysterious man who is stalking Iris and he is relentless in his pursuit. There are also hired thugs who are trying to capture Blue and his brother.

Blue must win his brother's trust and gain his cooperation if he is to successfully protect Iris and also solve the mystery behind their attempted kidnapping, but even then it's not enough. The shadowy enemy Blue is fighting against are powerful, influential figures who will stop at nothing to get what they want.

I really enjoyed this book. So far, I think it's the best in the series. It had me guessing until almost the end. I was thoroughly entertained.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too much like a X-men comic book 6 Dec 2006
By Fathom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
If you like X-men, you'll like the Dirk & Steele series. The first book, "Tiger Eye" had a great combination of paranormal, romance, and action. Unfortunately I've been loosing some of my enthusiam for the series as each subsequent book in the series gets published. The premise of a secret agency that is publically just a detective agency using their secret powers to help justice and people is great. However, after the first book, all these other unnamed agencies and people w/ super powers are popping up everywhere. Now it's superpower against superpower hero, you're not quite sure whether the other agents in these shadow agencies have agendas that are good are bad. I had hoped that after the "Dark Dreamers" anthology that the agency would go back to helping regular people and be more romance centered. The anthology story was a great story.

However, this full length novel is continuing the previous books on X-men like action and a couple of love scenes thrown in at the end to qualify it for a romance. Liu is a wonderful writer and able to display all the action and the emotion to the reader but the romance in the books have suffered. The resemblance in the books to X-men is too difficult to ignore and it getting a tad ridiculous because every person that the Dirk & Steele agency is tripping over has powers.

Back to the story of this book, Blue has been blackmailed by his father. Blue is the illegitimate first son of millionaire Felix. Felix wants Blue to find and bring his legitimate son--a son that Blue never knew about--back home for some nefarious reason. If Blue doesn't obey then Felix has threatened Blue of Dirk & Steele's exposure in the public, and other consequences to his mother. Blue is able to track down his brother, Daniel, at a travelling circus. The sparks fly when he runs into lion tamer, Iris, who has her own secrets. Blue is temporarily on hiatus from his job because he has just come out of a coma, decides to join the circus too. The reasons are both to be near Iris, and to find out what is so important about Daniel. At the same time, danger stalks Iris and the terrorists that Blue had been hunting when he got bombed may be involved, and other agents from other unknown shadow agencies begin to pop up out of the woodwork--are they good or bad?

Good action sequences, but low on the romance. I will continue to buy this series but I would classify it more as comic book like.

5.0 out of 5 stars Watch this author fly 19 Dec 2006
By Elaine C McTyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a phenomenal author, everything she writes is unbelieveably good.

The first chapter of the book sort of turned me off and I started to wait to read it but I perservered and was rewarded with a fully engrossing, intense, thrilling journey, I loved the book and I understand now why the first chapter was necessary.

Blue Perrineau is the son of a powerful man, very wealthy and harsh, they are estranged and Blue avoids his father as much as possible. Blue is a part of Dirk and Steele, an agency of psychic and para normal men and women who work quietly to preserve the peace and justice in our world. Now his father is supposedly dying and he has summoned his son. With threats and coersion he tells Blue he has a brother and the father is determined to control this one. Blue has managed to escape his influence because he is illigetimate. His brother is legitemate, because the father married his mother.

So with the health and even life of his mother at stake he agrees to find the missing brother. Blue has no idea of the sordid world he must traverse to find his brother and finally save the woman he meets and desires along the way.

Iris is a show performer. She is a lion tamer with several tigers and lions and jaguars, that she takes care of and performs with. She is also a shape-shifter. Her whole life has been concealed and secreted in the circus where she lives. Now they are in Las Vegas, she is performing at a major hotel and with her telepathic bond to the animals and the mass of people generating more mental static than she can handle, she is near a meltdown.

Blue knows immedately that she is a shifter because some of his friends at Dirk and Steele are shifters too. Knowing her secrets he realizes how tightly she must be holding her shields. He finds her fasinating and trys to help her, he also finds his brother. Neither brother acts like they know each other but they do, although they have never met.

Protecting Iris and his brother becomes harder when they are caught up into the dark underside of the sordid business that his father runs. Neither brother has ever had any tenderness from their father. Iris finds herself falling for Blue but she has many admirers and one of them is determined to have her, body and soul.

Finally it will take the two brothers and all of Dirk and Steele to save Iris and overcome the dark path set before the men by their own flesh and blood.

I loved this book and will wait anxiously for the next. Do not miss it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dirk and Steele 23 Dec 2006
By Neker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
None from this series has been as good for me as the first, but they all sure can make you stay up late at night reading. The characters are fun and well rounded and Liu is adept at taking you around the world in her adventure stories. In this case the story begins in Indonesia. Yet, strangely enough, this one stays mostly in America. Mainly, Las Vegas.

Iris works with wild cats (lions, tigers, but not bears)in a circus. Blue works for the Dirk and Steele detective agency and is threatened into finding his (never knew he existed before) half brother for his evil father. This leads him to the circus and right into the arms of the amazing shape-shifter, aka Iris. Of course, there's always more going on in a Liu book. While he's there observing his half-brother (escape artist) they are attacked by the some of the same men working for a very bad man Blue was tracking in Indonesia. Same sick man is interest in Iris and Blue's brother. Some how his crazy dad is envolved and Iris's missing mom. I know--it sound's crazy, doesn't it? But somehow Liu pulls all the strings together in the end and makes for a very entertaining read. Looking forward to more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot Romance with sexy suspense 4 Jan 2007
By GL Lambert - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I knew, when I first heard that Majorie M. Liu was writing Blue Perrineau's story, of Ms Lui's paranormal romantic suspense universe, Dirk and Steele, that this was going to be a GREAT story, and one of my very favorite's. Maybe I had a little of that "extra sensory" stuff myself, or it could be because, since reading her very first (Tiger Eye, 2005) book about a group of paranormal, mutant, gifted (which ever adjective you would most like to use) detective's, I've been hooked on her universe of agents trying save humanity from evil.

In Eye Of Heaven, Blue is after an organ peddler, a flesh and blood broker, who is not just powerful and rich, but who's family actually owns the bank. But Blue is seriously injured, and in his delirium, with his power, he also injures one of his best friends wives.

As he tries to recuperate, he gets the news that his estranged father has died.

Only things aren't what they seem. Not only is Blue's father not dead, but he finds out he has a brother. With his father blackmailing him, and guilt for the injury he caused his friends, Blue goes to Las Vegas, following a lead to find his brother. Not only does Blue find him, but he finds the love of his life. Iris McGillis.

Iris McGillis, circus performer, shapeshifter, orphan. After Iris mother disappears, she tries to make the best of her life that she can. But with men attacking her, causing problems with the big cats that she has care of, causing problems with the Las Vegas hotel that has hired the small circus to perform for them, Iris is more emotionally confused then ever. Then a handsome, sexy man saves her, and her confusion only intensify. But again, things aren't as them seem.

Not only must Blue reconcile the fact that he has a brother, but he must save Iris from the very people that he has been chasing, and people who he thought was family. Iris and Blue both, must face the lies, heartbreak and betrayal, of those they trusted and come to terms with who they are and what they want out of life for themselves.
