Book Review: Eyes of the Dead

Eyes of the Dead by Aleka Nakis is a fun read. Before I go any further, I have to give major kudos to Aleka and Resplendence Publishing. A portion of all proceeds from this book go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.


This is a supernatural romantic thriller, filled with action, jungle excursions, jaguars, drug lords, kidnappings, shootouts and even ghosts. It has a pulse pounding storyline that makes it easy to devour the entire book in one sitting. Aleka creates very vivid imagery. One almost feels like they are actually trekking through the exotic locals she describes in the book.


Eyes of the Dead will suck you into an adventure so intense, you nearly forget that it is actually a romance novel. Well, at least until you get to the romantic scenes. Aleka can produce gripping suspense, but have no doubt her love scenes will have your temperature rising.



I highly recommend you pick up a copy of this book.





Synopsis



What would you endure to find the cure for the disease that killed your mother? Exposure to venomous snakes? Raging rapids without a life jacket? Drug lords who dab in sex trafficking? Would you relinquish control and trust your life in a dead man's hands? Tiffany Jensen, a young breast cancer researcher, confronts her greatest fear and flies on a plane to a foreign country alone. Venturing into the dangerous terrain of the Mayan jungle, she is willing to do just about anything for the cure. Antonio Francisco Fernandez, aka Agent AFFCROC, is open to only one possibility: getting Tiffany out of his territory and safely back to the States. Will his insistence deny her success, or struggling to find her way, will she come face to face with the eyes of the dead?



Rating: 5 of 5 Stars

I would enjoy the book, except for maybe the snakes...those slithering things are evil if you ask me.

I like the books that once you open you can't close until you have finished it and then you are just wowed by the story.

have a great day!

Btw...my daughter is now a licensed driver...yikes!
