Product Description

Product Description

Gena Richmond is a collector of shades…sunglasses, that is. Every size, shape, color and style. So when she finds a quirky pair at a secondhand shop, it’s love at first sight. But these glasses are more than simple sun-blockers. They show her visions of what’s to come…and what’s coming is heart-stopping horrific.

Firstly and as usual, I received this book free for the purposes of an honest review. Also as usual I'll give my candid thoughts below.

On the positive side, Varley's novella is well written, contains only a few typos (which is increasingly rare in eBooks) and reasonably entertaining. Her grasp of character is strong and I could imagine the three young ladies in this book really existing somewhere in a not-too-absurd universe. Also, the book isn't just about entertainment it does have a bit of a deeper point. In the interest of avoiding spoilers I won't say what that point is but you'll find it if you read the book.

To the negative, the story is surprisingly simple and I feel like I just read a YA (young adult) novel. It's possible, of course, that it is targeted for a YA audience but it's not labeled as such so I have to assume that it's for adults. As such it loses a star because it's just so very, very simple.

In summary, this one is well written but a bit hollow for anyone over the age of 18. The themes are rather childish and lacking in complexity but on the whole a well-written story. This simplicity will be a positive for some and a negative for others. I leave it to the reader to make that determination for themselves.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite what I expected 6 Jun 2014
By Smeagol_Princess - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I received this book from GoodReads- First Read giveaway. When I entered, I was expecting a paranormal thriller. While it was plenty suspenseful, it was certainly not what I had expected. However, I was not disappointed by the story at all.
After purchasing a pair of second-hand sunglasses (that no one else seems to like), Gena begins to have visions. It takes a few days to realize that they are actually visions of things to come. Unfortunately, these visions are not the rainbows and winning lottery ticket type. At the same time that she is receiving these visions, she learns that her widowed father is starting to date again.
Rather than the adrenaline packed read I had expected, I found an even better story about missed interpretations and learning to adjust to new changes in ones life. I look forward to reading more from Dax Varley. Thanks

4.0 out of 5 stars Second Sight 14 Jan 2014
By Stephanie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This is another Oracles Novelette; I am fortunate to be reading "Second Sight" right after "Lost Girl" although, they do not need to be read in any particular order.

Second Sight is told from Gena's point of view. Gena absolutely loves sunglasses! When her friends Anne and Juniper go thrift shopping for a present for Juniper's dad's birthday, Gena comes across a pair of odd sunglasses that she falls in love with. For 0.65 cents, she just has to have them! As soon as Gena puts on her strange sunglasses, she starts to see wierd images, flashes of the future that she can't interpret. Is Anne going to go blind? Is Gena's dad going to be killed by his new girlfriend?

This Oracles Novelette was a little lighter than "Lost Girl" but still enjoyable. The sunglasses were an interesting device to use to see into the future, and as in "Lost Girl," the girls characters and great. I'm glad that the characters are so well developed and carry over from each Novelette. I'll be waiting for the next one...

This book was provided for free in exchange for an honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun, quirky story 23 July 2014
By SFC - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a fun little read. I loved the sassy heroine. Her dialogue was great and her relationship with her friends was a neat facet of the story I adored how she interacted with her dad. They were so cute and witty.

A quick read but lessons are learned and the heroine does grow in her maturity. A great teen story.

I was lucky to read an advance copy of this story. The Oracles are such a fun series and Second Sight does not disappoint. Dax Varley knows how to make you laugh while biting your nails. Can't wait to get Anne's story.

I really enjoyed this novella. It was well written and I liked the characters. I wish there were books like this when I was a teen. I will definitely consider reading more books from this author.
