I gave up my eyes in order to see more clearly...

Jeremiah Hunt is a man determined for justice when his young daughter, Elizabeth, suddenly disappears. When the police find nothing, he can't stand idly by and wait for action. He turns to the supernatural and does something drastic... Now Jeremiah is blind, but he can see the souls of the dead. Having given up his marriage and career for this ability, Jeremiah ends up assisting the police with odd cases, in the hopes that one day this will lead him to his daughter. Despite the belief by some that he may have actually killed Elizabeth, he lives a life that isn't happy, but is at least something - until a series of murders come to light that may or may not be connected to his family.

As an urban fantasy with a male protagonist, it was inevitable that Eyes to See was going to be compared to The Dresden Files, a great series filled with humour, police investigations,, a little romance, and a mixture of fantastical creatures. Whilst both are enjoyable for fairly different reasons, there is not in fact that much similar about these two books. Eyes to See is a much more somber book, with the pain of Elizabeth's disappearance weighing heavily on Jeremiah, who as a character is lacking Harry Dresden's easy humour and charm. Also, it only features ghosts - no vampires, werewolves, or faereis here. Despite all this, Eyes to See is a good book, with a great premise and a main character whose suffering is relatable and sympathetic throughout. Though it can feel a little too serious at times, this mood fits with the overall tone.

This is the first in a series of novels about a new occult hero, Jeremiah Hunt. Though set in the modern world, it is a world where ghosts, witches, demons and shapeshifters proliferate, unseen by the bulk of humanity. It could be our world, of course, because until Hunt takes part in a ceremony to enable him to "see that which is unseen" he is as unaware as the rest of us of its existence. This ceremony, part of his desperate bid to find his abducted daughter, has far reaching results. While it enables him to see the spirit world, in particular ghosts, at the same time his normal ability to see is destroyed. Burned out by visions of the full scope of reality, his eyes are blind in normal light and can only see in pitch darkness or via the eyes of ghosts.

Still searching for his daughter, Hunt is occasionally consulted by a local Boston police detective for his "psychic" abilities. The cases he becomes involved with eventually centre on a series of bizarre brutal murders which, piece by piece, he comes to realise have a bearing on the unknown fate of his daughter. In his search he finds help from two unlikely sources, a young, talented witch, a worshipper of Gaia, and a huge Russian bar-owner with frightening abilities of his own. What they are up against, though, makes even their combined abilities seem puny by comparison. It's an ancient evil, stretching back into America's distant colonial past, which is manipulating Hunt without him realising how he is being used and bringing him closer to an horrific fate.

Fast paced, with plenty of twists and turns in its storyline, this is an accomplished novel of supernatural evil, with tenuous links to the author's other series of occult novels involving modern Knights Templars. Jeremiah Hunt is a credible hero, deeply flawed but determined. It is a dark urban fantasy of the darkest, most horrific kind.

I'm not sure why but I wasn't expecting this book to be any good. However, much to my delight, this was a surprisingly well written and engaging tale that kept my attention from the opening pages right through to the last chapter. It is a character driven story that isn't overly complex but is certainly gripping, if a bit dark from time to time.

This is the story of Jeremiah Hunt. After losing his daughter he will stop at nothing to get her back or at least find out what happened to her. That road has taken him to the discovery of the supernatural, though at great cost. Now he has unwittingly become entangled in a gruesome murder investigation that seems supernatural in nature and may hold some clues about his missing daughter.

The strength of this book lays squarely on the shoulders of Jeremiah. He is a character that is so driven that it's hard not to root for him to succeed, especially after everything he's been through.

The other characters aren't so well rounded, but they have potential and as this is the first book of the series I am sure they will be fleshed out in the future.

Overall, this was an intriguing and enjoyable first book and I look forward to what else the series has in store.

My score for this would be 3.5 out of five stars, however I'm happy to round it up to 4. Therefore I can happily recommend this novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars New Series Promises Darkness 3 Dec. 2011
By Mel Odom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Eyes To See is the first book in an intriguing new series by Joseph Nassise (author of the Templar Chronicles) and is a great little mix of paranormal and noir fiction. In order to find his missing daughter, scholar Jeremiah Hunt gave up his eyes in exchange for a new vision that allows him to see through the eyes of the dead and other demonic forces. He finances his continued search for his daughter by hiring out as a ghost banisher and moonlighting with the Boston Police Department as a consultant.

The book opens up with an interesting glimpse into Jeremiah's life as he arrives at a potential client's house. Nassise does a good job of showing how vulnerable a blind man is in today's world if people decide to take advantage of him, and depicting the fact that Jeremiah at this stage of his life is not a nice guy. He's totally focused on finding his daughter and only puts up with others if they're going to help him achieve that goal.

Nassise also builds his world of darkness and light really well, then fills it with all manner of monsters. The author is really good at pacing and atmosphere, and I felt as trapped in the pages as Jeremiah felt in the search for his missing child. I couldn't help but keep pressing on, watching as the stakes mounted and the odds against Jeremiah intensified.

Boston comes alive on the pages too. I felt the city and its shadows all around me as I chased after Jeremiah and peeked over his shoulder at all the ghosts and monsters he confronted during his various caseloads. Nassise has a nice mix of people who know about that dark world hidden from the view of most humans, and of people who think Jeremiah just has "special" powers, not a front row seat at the various circles of Hell.

The overall premise of the book may put some readers in the mind of Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden series, but this trilogy promises to be a lot darker and more somber.

3.0 out of 5 stars Heart to bleed 11 Sept. 2012
By Jason Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Could you imagine losing your only child, not knowing what happened and resorting to literally anything you could do in hopes to get your child back? Including doing a spell (not casting, doing) that takes away your sight and lets you see what your naked eye can't? For Professor Jeremiah Hunt, he felt the absolute need to. Only when he did, nothing he expeced seemed to happen, including help an officer figure out bizarre details with truly bizarre murder scenes that defy normal physics and logic. But there's always a catch, isn't there?
In the midst of figuring out the murders on his own, he ends up running into Denise, a hedge witch (Templar Chronicles, anyone?) that ends up helping him find his daughter, Elizabeth. Not to mention Dmitri, a Russian bartender with a couple nice little secrets of his own.
This book was pretty much all right, except for the chapters dealing with Jeremiah's past. Whether it was the font or some other reason, for the most part, they didn't feel organically connected to the rest of the story, so I ended up actually groaning every time I got to one of those chapters. Otherwise, this was pretty good, now to wait for King of the Dead to come out.
3.0 out of 5 stars not bad 29 April 2013

I did not go into this expecting much, but I enjoyed the perspective of a blind protagonist and the twists in the story. I usually groan when I have to read flashbacks, but these flashbacks really brought the story along. It could have been written with a little more depth and detail, but overall, not bad.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good anti hero book 3 Feb. 2013
By opinion - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
The book was compelling the characters had depth and it was interesting that he tied in a minor character from his other series the templar series. So same world of characters but focusing in on a different character.
