A recent Musing Monday’s post was about listening to audio books. I said I keep one going in my car all the time and that it is a way for me to check out new authors and series. I just finished listening to For Heaven’s Eyes Only by Simon Green. I have read other series by Simon Green and wondered if I would like this one.
This is book five in Simon Green’s The Secret Histories series. The series features field agent Edwin “Eddie” Drood – aka secret agent Shaman Bond.
“A horrifying presence is growing and the threat of a mysterious Great Sacrifice looms. Although Eddie has always been something of an outside, he – with help from his witch lover Molly Metcalf – will have to rise to the occasion to help thwart the menace and save his people.”
For Heaven’s Eyes Only was fun to listen too but I would not want to read the book. There is a lot of blood and gore. Saving the world involved killing a lot of people. If you read the book don’t expect any happy ending. Once the current problem is solved the book ends with a cliff-hanger that will be the theme for the next book.
Recorded Books produced For Heaven’s Eyes Only by Simon Green in 2011.
