Dead Eye: The Skinwalker Conspiracies

"My name is Mike Ross and I'm a Ferryman - like in the Greek myth. I didn't ask for, or really want, the job, but I'm trying to make the best of it. Most ghosts are okay and just need a little help to get where they need to go. Unfortunately, there are lots of exceptions, like power-mad psychopaths, spirits still trying to fight battles long since lost, and the worst of the lot - the Skinwalkers. They live vicariously by possessing people and controlling them like puppet masters. Then they toss them aside when they've outlived their usefulness."

    "UNDERAPPRECIATED Masterpiece!!!"

    Second book is as good as the first,
    and from this moment on
    Jim Bernheimer is in my top 10 Favorite Authors
    and Jeffrey Kafer performed an outstanding narration.

    PS
    I was upset to find out that there is no 3rd book as of yet,
    but according to the author he has plans
    for at least 1 probably 2-3 more books in a dead eye series.

    Let's hope they will be available soon.

    "I really like this series"

    I really have fun with this series. I listen to a lot of books and always have that moment when I start up a book in a series where I wonder if I'll know what's happening, but he does a concise recap without boring you or overloading you. Mike is doing well, growing, learning, hismcharacter is progressing nicely. Making good choices, with a few bad ones here and there, but he's human. So it stays entertaining and fun.

    But, there is this one thing that needs to be discussed. He (author) employs famous dead people throughout both books. The first one was Edgear Alan Poe and a few war generals, I won't spoil whose in this one, but there's some good ones. I have a love/hate relationship with famous dead people having active roles. He does seem to pull it off though. I initially cringed, but they all worked well. At least it wasn't jack the ripper, I hate when when he shows up. I look forward to another book!

    "Quirky, Funny: Worth it!!"

    I've just converted to the Jim Bernheimer religion!! the book is funny, fast-paced and a breath of fresh air.
    I took a gamble some months back and decided to read "confessions of a d-list supervillain" (Another book by Jim Bernheimer) and was amzazed at how much i liked it. i decided to read another one - although i purchased 'pennies for the ferryman', i still havent read it (in fact, i forgot it was in my library until a few minutes ago when i tried to purchase it!!)
    i ended up getting the 'skinwalker conspiracies' some days ago, because of the reviews i read about it. all i can say is "a big fat thank you" to those who reviewed it, seeing as it was defintely worth the sleepless night and the loud (crazy woman) sudden bursts of laughter at the office today!
    I certainly can't way to acquaint myself with the first book!!

    any ideas when book 3 might be coming out? I'll take a day off work, just so i can read it!!

    "Just as good as the first book..."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yeah I would, if you liked the first book you'll like the second book too...


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dead Eye: The Skinwalker Conspiracies?

    When mike's spirit was put in a dogs body, it was kinda interesting that he still alive and that he can leave his own physical body and spirit jump.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When he met and fought Lee Harvey Oswald.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this book to people who are into supernatural books and i just wanna know when are we getting book three so we know what's gonna happen to Mike Ross and his group of spirits.

    "Entertainment steady."
    Would you listen to Dead Eye: The Skinwalker Conspiracies again? Why?

    I really enjoyed this audio book and I will definitely listen again. The narrator did an awesome job! The story was believeable and scary yet well seasoned with lite humor throughout. I couldn't stop listening. This book maintained the intensity of the first book in this series. It really is a must read if you like a mix of paranormal, snarky quick wit attitude and suspense.

    Story
    "What a road trip."

    Equally as funny as the first, maybe even better. I love the part with the dogs, it cracked me up big time. There are new characters such as Lee Harvey Oswald for one and we finally get his real story, ha, ha. The road trip is mostly in Texas. Mike finally gets to find out what really happened with his dad. Mike is learning neat new tricks and getting himself into more than one scrap. So this is a defiant read if you like the first one. Narrator is good and I enjoyed him better in the second book than I did in the first. Maybe I just got used to him.

    "As Good as the First."

    This is the second book in the Dead Eye series. I found this to be as enjoyable
    as the first book. Mike takes the show on the road meeting more historical figures
    and of course finding himself in more trouble along the way. Mike finds that
    his abilities are expanding and with those expanding abilities comes tougher
    opposition. This is one of those series I was reluctant to try at first but it has
    great narration done by Jeffrey Kafer and Jim Bernheimer has me hooked. I
    will defiantly be buying the third book whenever it comes out.

    Story
    "Supernatural sarcasm and ghostly power politics."

    If the river Styx was suddenly moved to a back road in suburbia and no one was giving Charon a golden tip (or anything but a hard time) you would have this working man's story. You just gotta feel for the guy. Funny and fast paced, an easy listen. Like walking into school naked on the day of the exam, this poor guy has to figure out whats going on and why the universe is messing with him; find some pants and win the girl. It is a lighthearted look at being on the working class bottom looking up. With ghosts. Not a unique concept but well done. Like Chinese I want more an hour later......and as I am very picky about having the narration fit the flavor of the character, this one has just the right sarcastic overtone. A good match.

    Story
    "Dependable fantasy/mystery series"
    What did you like best about this story?

    I am a sucker for this genre that blends mystery or crime in parallel universe of ghosts or wizards etc. ala Dresden files, The Iron Druid or even Monster hunters international. A common thread here is wisecracking long suffering hero's.


    Have you listened to any of Jeffrey Kafer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I very much enjoyed this reading


    Any additional comments?

    Although not really a distraction, this book reads as if each chapter was written like a monthly installment in a mystery magazine or web series, although I have no personal knowledge of this. On several occasions we are reminded of an incident that needed no reiteration unless the listener had been away from the story for an extended period of time.

    Story
    "The Adventure Continues . . . inventive and fun"

    On this second book of the series, the author's writing tightened up. The first book had more laugh out loud moments, but this one has some interesting fight scenes. I'm not even into fight scenes, but it was fascinating to hear such inventive man vs ghost(s) battles.

    The story takes such creative spins and liberties with historical figures that it keeps a reader curious. The pace is fast. Jim Bernheimer drops the strange "in the previous episode" recap that headed chapters in the first book, which would be nice for people who read very slowly with time between chapters, but was a pace breaker for people who kept on going.

    Even with all the action packed adventures, switched loyalties, betrayals, and unexpected alliances, this time there's romance and Mike finally "gets the girl" and it's nice that the book stays clean and light hearted despite touching on some dark topics that really exist in our society, like dog fighting.

    I thought the first book should have been in the Comedy section, it made me laugh. This one still had some humor, but not as much. It makes a person smile at times, but it has more adventure in it than laughs. Still, a great story.
