#BookReview: Eyes of Autumn by Cynthia H. Wise

Reviewer: Samantha

I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy


Recurring dreams have plagued Katie Hammond since childhood, forcing her to keep an open mind to the paranormal. But when Katie is compelled to follow a forest path during her trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains, she stumbles into a forgotten life—one she’s not sure she wants to remember—and an enthralling man who shouldn’t exist.

At the end of the path is Marcus Hillyerd, a man with a secret and golden eyes. He comes face-to-face with the only woman he’s ever loved. The only problem—she doesn’t remember him.

Then evil from Marcus’s past emerges and attempts to destroy everything he holds sacred. Needing reinforcement, Marcus calls upon Marcel Enterprises, his network of paranormal beings dedicated to helping victims of corruption. Together, they must risk their lives to keep Katie safe and protect the empire that took Marcus more than a century to build.


I enjoy reading books with a supernatural twist, so I happily started Eyes of Autumn. I was very intrigued right off the bat. Some of the work plot with Katie left me a little disinterested, but once her and friend Angie got to the Blue Ridge Mountains, it started to pick up for me. A lot of plot twists and eyebrow raises ensued. I was always very curious about where the story would take us next. However, there were a few times where I felt disconnected. Both with Katie and Angie – sometimes something would happen where I felt their reaction didn’t match the situation. Times where both women didn’t seem fazed at something that I thought would be quite startling. The second half of the book was a little harder for me to get into, but it was still interesting to read on a whole.

3.5 stars
