"Wally was adopted from a Russian orphanage as a child and grew up in a wealthy New York City family. At 15, her obsessive need to rebel led her to life on the streets. Now the 16-year-old is beautiful and hardened, and she's just stumbled across the possibility of discovering who she really is. "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" for teens, this debut thriller introduces a new heroine."

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!

I give it 4 BITES!

Happy Reading!


  1. OoOo glad that you liked this one. It somehow got put in the "I've already read you" part of the pile so I'm gonna have to get to it =)

  2. Ooh! I'm actually starting this one today!! Looking forward to it! :)

  3. This isn't a paranormal? I guess I never really read the blurb, I just assumed it was paranormal based on the cover and title:) I always enjoy mafia books, especially ones with twists. Win:)

    1. I thought it was , but just good ol' family drama!

  4. just hopping by, happy Friday!

  5. Sounds like a great character. Level-headed and strong. I really like that especially in a YA character.
