Eyes of the Seer

(The Vampire Flynn)



Written by Peter Dawes




Genre: Fantasy


Book Synopsis


It all started with a murder. Two victims lay dead at the hands of Peter Dawes, but what laid in wait for him was not the sound of sirens or the banging of a gavel. It would turn a doctor into a killer and a man into a monster.

Follow Peter as he exchanges his blood-stained clothing for tailored suits, his scalpel for fine-crafted daggers, and is reinvented as the newest vampire-child in a coven of decadent sophisticates. He even takes on the name ‘Flynn’ – a child of red – in honor of his new-found devilish side and to further distance himself from his human past.

For four years, Flynn embodies every bit the bloody immortal he was sired to become. Under the reign of his maker, Sabrina, he establishes a reputation as the most feared assassin to ever terrorize the covens of Philadelphia. But the surefooted-steps and quick hands that make him a virtuoso when it comes to killing humans and vampires alike are attributes of the mortal destiny which haunts him even beyond death. And despite all efforts, Peter’s humanity is not as dead as some would prefer.

On the verge of completing their vie for power, Sabrina’s ‘dark-killer’ will suddenly find himself wrestling his devotion to his mistress when an impish sorceress named Monica awakens the hidden powers he was destined to possess. In this world of macabre and shrewdly practical immortal beings, will Flynn’s supernatural gifts be used to orchestrate the wicked deeds of his maker? Or can the cold-blooded nature of a vampire be warmed by the compassion of a Seer?

Sarai's Review


I have to admit it has been 2 weeks since I finished this book and I am still uncertain as to what I think about it. It is one of those books that make you re-evaluate your thoughts on vampires. The simple fact that I am still thinking about this book says something. It is a violent, bloody, cussing, no moral hold book. Flynn is a vampire and he loves being a vampire, but not just a vampire he’s a trained killer who relishes his kills.

There are some twist and turns in this novel. There’s a watcher/witch, a brother/friend, and a conscious that comes on at the worse times. There were points that I can honestly say dragged on and on. The wrestling with wanting to be bad Flynn vs. wanting to be good Peter was frustrating at the times. I’m good and the F that I’m bad got old. Eventually the battle finally came to a head and taken care of. Once that was solved towards the end of the book (I won’t tell you which direction it went) things were fine and picked back up. The end did hold a nice twist.

Needless to say there are 2 more books in this series and I have to admit that interested in catching the next one just to see how Flynn/Peter will react to the last bit of news we received at the end of the book...
