Beyond the Eyes by Rebekkah Ford, Plus a Giveaway!

Paige knows evil exists in this world, but she never imagined it would want something from her.

After a ghostly voice whispers a haunting message to seventeen-year-old Paige Reed, Paige’s life takes a nightmarish turn. Unwilling to tell her friends about the supernatural occurrences happening in her life, Paige feels more alone than ever–until she meets Nathan Caswell.

Nathan is not only hot, but seems to peer into Paige’s soul, evoking a magnetic energy between them that cannot be denied. But he’s no ordinary guy. He tracks dark spirits, and becomes alarmed when they set their sights on Paige.

And then there are the two power-hungry dark spirits who believe Paige can find King Solomon’s magical ring for them, because when her father was alive, he was close to finding it. If Paige doesn’t comply with their demands, they’ll kill her.

Paige is forced to dig deep into her father’s past and unearths shocking secrets about him and his bloodline. With the past and present colliding, Paige is only sure about two things in her life: she needs to outwit the dark spirits to stay alive, and she’s completely and helplessly in love with Nathan.

This is a new, exciting young adult series that will captivate teens and adults alike. If you enjoy paranormal stories with a good dose of romance, then this one is for you.

Paige has premonitions. Other than that she is a normal teenage girl with high school to worry about and friendships to maintain. But the premonitions are becoming stronger and stronger, demanding more attention. This is where we meet her, as she is trying to figure out how to manage her life. Paige is a fun character to read about. She is no damsel in distress, which definitely is a relief. She is spunky, with a strong personality that is not dimmed by any other character. Nathan, her love interest, is a good contrast to her. He is more staid, more cautious, and he and Paige develop a relationship that is much healthier than the ones we usually see in the young adult genre.

The writing is fresh and there is a good sense of rhythm to the prose, making it a pleasant read, even for the more finicky teens out there. I definitely recommend this book if you’re looking for a fun, different read.
And since this is just the beginning of the series, they’ll be more books to come!

Looks really awesome.
The option to like her fb page wasn't working, so I tried to find her page, which didn't work through google or fb, but I followed her blog. Just thought I'd let you know that it wasn't working.
