When I started reading this book I had no idea what to expect. I can tell you that once I started the book I liked it. It totally blew me away with a mystery that makes you run for your life!What I liked most about this book is the great on the run from your life plot. I totally thought this was a paranormal book, I was wrong. I loved the aspect of searching for clues, jewels and long lost person thought to be dead. The mafia twist to the book rocked. I never saw that coming. The way this theme intensified the searching made my heart race.The characters of the book were well written. I adored the main character Wally, who's life has been completely turn upside down. She is level-header yet strong. Her quest to find her identity, her parents, her heritage, really set the reader in the book to search with her.Dark Eyes is darkly intense with loads of action. The search for answers is ticking away fast as someone else is always looking. Dark Eyes is an engrossing, suspenseful story!
