Eye of the Star
Psychic Thriller with a Twist of SciFi Seraphia VINE VOICE
Eye of the Star by R.H. Kono is the first book in a psychic thriller series. The author introduces readers to a cop by the name of Jim Sato and a psychic by the name of Gilda Dobrowski. They’ve worked a case together before, but what they are about to find themselves immersed in is more than what they have dealt with before and will push them to their limits. Eye of the Star is an engaging psychic thriller that pits a cop and a psychic against a man intent on spreading terror and fear. Sergei is a mystery being/voice in the ether who reaches out to Gilda with the twisted promise of death and destruction to come. Gilda reaches out to Jim in the hopes that he will be able to help her. Jim is reeled into the web of danger and intrigue as he must work with Gilda in an attempt to get ahead of Sergei inorder to thwart his attempts at bringing destruction and raining down terror on the United States. While this storyline focuses on the threat that Sergei poses to the characters and the world, I like that the author brings other aspects to the story as well. Jim is an American, born and raised, but because of his appearance he’s judged and harassed. I can’t help but feel for him as he deals with prejudices from other individuals all around him. I like how realistic the characters are overall. Jim’s wife deals with her own issues of being insecure because of Gilda. But she’s not the only one. Jim has to battle with his own issues behind his wife’s ex who just so happens to be close at hand, and more than eager to swoop in should he think that Judy needs some comfort. There is a lot going on in this book and that makes it hard to put down. Sergei is playing a game of psychic cat and mouse with Jim and Gilda. Then Jim and Gilda have the police and the FBI hunting them because they don’t believe that the information that they are acquiring is truly on the up and up. Jim and Gilda are trying to head Sergei off from accomplishing his goals, and you can really see and feel the stress that they must be under the whole time as they strive to save lives. I read the second book in this series first, and so I found it rather refreshing to be able to come back and get a taste for how things begin, so to speak, with this series. The author points out that there was an initial case of where these two characters meet. I’d be interested to read that story if there is one. I think it’d be interesting to learn how they first crossed paths. I’m rating this book 5 out of 5 stars. The storyline is well done and the author creates a good sense of drama and intrigue throughout the novel.
A PSYCHIC THRILLERVirginia Hawley
I ENJOY READING MYSTERIES AND CRIME STORIES. EYE OF THE STAR BY R.H. KOHNO WAS BOTH OF THESE. IT HELD MY ATTENTION AND KEPT ME GUESSING. IT WAS A FAST READ WITHOUT BEING TOO FAST. THE CHARACTERS WERE WELL DEVELOPED AND THE SCENARIOS PRESENTED WERE WELL THOUGHT OUT AND CONNECTED. A GOOD READ!
Well written thriller with a touch of science fictionTenkara
Eye of the Star is a well written thriller with engaging characters and an interesting plot. The book is a thriller - a search to uncover a terrorist plot - and has an interesting 'psychic' twist, making this novel unique in the world of thriller books. The author uses dialogue well and makes you feel like you are right there with the characters as they search for the terrorists, and he also connects the reader emotionally to the characters through his writing. Overall, a good read if you like thrillers/mystery, and even though it's written about a very normal place in the USA, if you like a bit of interesting science fiction added to the storyline.
