God's Eye by A.J. Scudiere

Thursday, September 22, 2011
Katharine Geryon is living the life her family name has dictated, and why not? After all, it has given her a good job in the family company and a fine life with all the things she should want. But all that changes as increasingly disturbing events begin to occur: soot stains on the carpet, glimpses of strange black animals, and cryptic messages written on her bathroom mirror. Baffled and afraid, Katharine begins to doubt her own sanity.
At the same time, two charismatic men enter her life: Allistair, her new assistant at work, and Zachary, a well-heeled neighbor who just moved into her building. Katharine soon finds each of them inextricably entangled in her affairs. As her life becomes stranger and her dreams more terrifying, she realizes neither man is what he seems and that she's caught in something far beyond her own comprehension. For the first time, she must reach beyond her own boundaries. There Katharine forges her first true friendship with Margot, a librarian who helps her discover what these men really are, why she's drawn to them, and what they want with her.

The answer places Katharine in the middle of a fierce battle that forces her to decide between the two men fighting for her soul.

In the end, only one can be saved, but all three will be judged.

Goodreads Summary

Katharine is the main character of this novel.  She has grown up in a wealthy family, groomed to take over her fathers' business.  She has never been out of the ordinary or stepped out of line.  Everything changes when she meets Allistair and Zachary. 

The two men are very enigmatic and mysterious.  She finds herself attracted to both.  The novel actually doesn't contain an overabundance at all of romance.  Instead, Katharine must truly see and pay attention to what is going on around her if she is to have a prayer of guessing correctly in the obscure ending.

Katharine was a great character to get to know.  She is inquisitive, kind, and smart.  She is a fairly strong female character, which is great as that quality is fairly unusual.  The secondary characters are well-developed and fun to get to know, the reader will enjoy delving for clues with Katharine into the two mens' backgrounds.

The events are fairly fast-paced, the ending is perfect, and this book is great for adult readers.
