Review: Eyes Ever to the Sky (The Sky Trilogy #1) by Katie French

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.

*I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review*

Hot naked guy with no memory, murder scenes and a sweet teenage girl, it doesn't get much more intriguing than that I believe. After finishing Eyes Everr To The Sky I can say it was an enjoyable read, though it won't knock your socks off.

Katie French has created a very detailed story, with an emphasis on the dark and gritty. We have a young man with superpowers, who has no idea who he is or where he came from and a young female trying to survive life with a mother who is bi-polar. Which is very well written. Cece's mother has a disease and the way the author approaches the issue is very authentic. It really showed all the difficulties Cece has to keeping their lives on track.

Now what didn't work so well for me was the instant love between Hugh and Cece. The first time they met he is wearing woman's clothing and is covered in blood. Still she immediately trusted him and even brought him home with her. Being in that small trailer, somehow they decide they are not just attracted to each other, but also have feelings for each other. I did not buy it. Seriously multiple murders have happened, Hugh is covered in blood, one plus one equals two you know. The fact that there is never a thought he might be involved proves to me that Cece isn't the smartest fifteen-year-old.

Sometimes the story felt very fast paced. I did like the switching in POV, certainly the one's from the victims. There was a lot of detail, but not enough build up. The whole part that could have made it more interesting, aliens, was only approached briefly and lacking depth.

Like I said it was an enjoyable read and if you like paranormal romance, involving aliens and lots of blood, this can definitely be a book for you.
