Review: Eyes Ever to the Sky by Katie French

Eyes Ever to the Sky 
by Katie French
Released Date: Published April 9th 2013 by Katie French Books
Series: The Sky Trilogy #1
Pages: 194
View/Purchase: Goodreads, Amazon, B&N

When Hugh wakes up in a smoldering crater—no memory, no clothes—a single thought echoes in his head…trust no one. Frightened and alone, with no memory of who he is, he stumbles upon a grisly murder scene and is fatally shot. He wakes, only to find he can heal himself. He has superpowers, and he’s going to need them.

Desperate and bleeding, Hugh stumbles upon fifteen-year-old Cece, who’s got enough troubles of her own. Between caring for her bipolar mother and trying not to get evicted from her run-down trailer, Cece may be the only person struggling as much as Hugh. Drawn to Hugh, Cece finds a love she’s never known. But when the real killer—a man-hunting beast—chooses another victim, Hugh and Cece realize they must unlock the clues to their past if they have any chance at a future.

My Review:

I wasn't sure if I was going to like the book at first, I'm still trying to decide whether I liked it or not. I really liked the concept and how descriptive it was. The book itself was very well-written and unique, but it was confusing at times. The beginning of the book was a total mystery to me, the characters weren't engaging at first, it was all so sudden that I started questioning it. The multiple point-of-views really threw me off. Needless to say, the story revolves around Cece and Hugh. Cece hasn't had a nice live, her mother is bipolar and they both live in a trailer. As a young girl, Cece now has to support her mother and make sure she is fine. From what I was able to see, Cece hasn't always had the best childhood and therefore has to grow up fast. On the other hand, Hugh is the total opposite. He doesn't remember what his real name is and where he is from. It was definitely interesting reading his point-of-view, it reminded me of The Host by Stephanie Meyer. The romance in the story is so sudden that it made it look a bit unrealistic. The characters were just so different that it was hard for me to get into the story. There were twists and turns in the story that made it interesting at times, yet because there were so many aspects of the story the ending came a shocker for me (definitely a cliffhanger). I'm not so sure if I'm going to be reading the second book in the trilogy, but I would recommend this book to those that want to give it a try.
