That I barely remember anything from this book is likely a blessing, because what I do remember of it is terrible.
Put short, this novel would’ve fared better had it been written in the 1990s. That it’s been published twenty years later does not serve it well. V. C. Andrews is not good at writing paranormals, as evidenced here in Sage’s Eyes.
But worse than the pitiful attempt at supernatural activity is…the self-referencing. The characters go to see a movie adaptation of Ruby – yes, based on the V. C. Andrews novel. I can handle shoddy writing, but this wankery was too much.
Skip Sage’s Eyes. It’s not even “so bad, it’s good”. It’s just bad.
