Paige lives in the small town of Astoria, Oregon. In a land surrounded by deep forests and mountains, another world exists: a world of dark spirits. Paige is not a normal seventeen-year-old. She has been receiving premonitions since she was four. Then she meets Nathan. Her heart starts to race, and she feels an attraction to him. He is not mortal. He tracks dark spirits, and these dark spirits have set their sights on Paige.
She is the key to their power. She must choose between her mortal life and immortality. Each choice has consequences.
Beyond the Eyes is a paranormal romance written by Rebekkah Ford. Paige is a girl growing up in the mountains of Oregon. She is already having paranormal experiences when she meets Nathan at a night club. That’s when the paranormal world that exists along side her normal one comes crashing into her life. She finds dark spirits are interested in her because they think she can find the legendary Ring of Solomon. This is an artifact that can give the wearer control of dark spirits. Her father was looking for it, and the dark spirits killed him. Nathan is an immortal who is attracted to Paige and has sworn to protect her.
The story has an interesting premise of what happens when you are offered immortality. However, the action is bogged down in unnecessary detail, slowing the action of the story. The romantic interest between Paige and Nathan was somewhat cliché. It seems to be a variant on the Twilight theme. On the other hand, the characters were likable, and there is just enough mystery at the end to make me curious as to what happens next.
