Joseph Nassise shook up the urban fantasy genre with Eyes to See, a novel New York Times best-selling author Jonathan Maberry called "heartbreaking, deeply insightful, powerful and genuinely thrilling."
In a devil’s deal, Jeremiah Hunt sacrificed his human sight in exchange for the power to see the hidden world of ghosts and all of the darker spirits that prowl the streets. Hunt uncovered a world of murder and magic that took his daughter from him and nearly cost him his life, but that was only the beginning....
Now Hunt is on the run from the FBI, who have pegged him as a mass-murdering dark sorcerer. His flight from the law is diverted to New Orleans when his companion, a potent witch, has a horrific vision of the city under magical siege. When they arrive, they realize that the situation is more dire than they could have imagined: the world of the living faces a terrifying attack by forces from beyond the grave. King of the Dead, the second book in this groundbreaking series, promises more of Nassise’s electrifying writing that will enthrall listeners looking for a supercharged, supernatural thrill.

"[A] rich, exciting, emotionally resonant blend of horror, thriller, and fantasy." (Booklist, starred review)
"A great read and unlike almost anything else I’ve read in urban fantasy: It’s hard-boiled and dark, as if Cornell Woolrich had written an urban fantasy. Definitely its own beast. Damn, this man can write!" (Kat Richardson, best-selling author of the Greywalker paranormal mysteries)
"I couldn’t stop reading. It’s full of supernatural creepiness that will have you leaving the lights on when you go to sleep." (Carrie Vaughn, New York Times best-selling author of the Kitty series)
I absolutely loved the first part of The Jeremiah Hunt Chronicle, and although the sequel is not quite as good as the first part or the series, it does a reasonable job of keeping you interested.
I'd really like to know know the hell happened. The first book was actually quite good, but it seems like the author handed the pen over to some hack. In the first book the author had a cool concept of his main character (Hunt) being blind except for when it's dark. In the second book it seems like the blind thing became an inconvenience so the author played fast and loose with it. In book one Hunt can see on night streets but the lights hamper him a lot. He can see enough to walk down the street and avoid walking into people or cars, but thats about it. In book two, Hunt is running down streets, jumping fences and so on. You'd never know he was blind.
Over all the whole book is just lazy writing and it got annoying enough that I have no plan of getting the next book in the series even though this book ends in a somewhat of cliffhanger.
