Review of The Eye-Dancers by Michael S. Fedison

I recently finished reading The Eye-Dancers by Michael S. Fedison for the second time and wanted to share my reflections on it. Just in case you are looking for a new science-fiction read! In my opinion, it is a good read for both teens and adults.

When I started this book, I admit I wasn’t sure what to expect as the title made me wonder, “Why are they dancing around an eyeball?” But as it was a book in the sci-fi genre, I knew better than to be too inquisitive. Instead, I opened myself up to the storyline and found myself thoroughly enjoying the read by the third chapter. Yes, I was hooked!

The characters of Mitchell, Joe, Ryan, Marc, and the “ghost girl” were all very well described, and they had significant differences in personality, which made them more realistic. While there were several characters to keep track of, I did not find it difficult to do so because author Fedison had clearly defined them from the start of the book. I was glad not to have to re-read sections of the book to try to understand who was who (been there, done that).

I found myself trying to figure out where exactly the teenagers had been transported to… Was it an alternate universe? Had they travelled through an “eye”? Also, I wanted to know if they could save the kidnapped girl and, if so, how exactly it would happen. All of these questions ran through my mind, and so I held onto every word that was written by Michael S. Fedison.

I also want to say that the ending was well done. Sometimes I have been let down by the abrupt endings of books but not this time. The loose ends were wrapped up well in the conclusion of The Eye-Dancers.

Have you ever been disappointed by the end of a book?

      I hear what you’re saying about the author’s name being small… I wonder if he didn’t want to take anything away from the amazing cover art? Not sure. I hope your next read has a good ending to it 🙂

      The point about the bad ending is true of movies too, in addition to books. I saw the movie “Hello My Name is Doris” and was disappointed in the abrupt ending. I think the ending is so important because it’s the lasting impression on the creative work.

    Great review.

    And boy, oh, boy, yes, I have been disappointed by the ends of books. I like to read a lot of nonfiction, so when I come across a title that tackles an obscure chapter in history, I’ll snatch it up. Unfortunately, due to this topic’s obscurity, there often isn’t enough information to sustain an entire book; I can feel the author desperately treading water at about two thirds of the through.

      Ug, that’s the worst when you’re only just past the halfway point and feeling let down.. I’m glad though I wasn’t the only one not getting the endings I want in some books these days.

    Been following Eye Dancers blog for awhile. No doubt I will read the book one day. You’ve written a wonderful review for it! (The show is slowing down a bit, and I’m getting back to a bit more blogging.)
