Overview

From V.C. Andrews, bestselling author of Flowers in the Attic (the first in a series of Lifetime movie events about the Dollanganger family), comes the tale of a young girl kept under the watchful eye of her adoptive parents, as if they fear who—or what—she’ll become…

Sixteen-year-old Sage is a lonely child. Her adoptive parents watch her obsessively, as if studying her for warning signs of…something. And maybe they’re right to—even she can’t make sense of the strange things she sees and hears. She possesses knowledge that other teenagers don’t, that her parents and teachers—no adult—could possibly have. So when Sage finally makes a friend who understands her alarming gift, he becomes her confidant, a precarious link to the truth about who she really is. For Sage and the alluring new boy at school share many things in common. Perhaps, they’ll learn, far too many things.

The story started off well enough. It was a little slow and confusing at the start. The writing throughout the book was unengaging, almost amateurish, and seemed sort of forced in many parts. I was eager to learn the truth behind Sage's past and visions, but when it was revealed I just found the real explanation disappointing. I was all worked up through the course of the book and the culmination was....nothing extraordinary. It wasn't terrible but I personally just did not enjoy it all that much.

Sage’s Eyes by V.C. Andrews is set in Dorey, Massachusetts. Sage Healy has heard voices since she was child (she finds them comforting). Her adoptive parents (cold and clinical people) told her to ignore them. Sage also seems to know things about people and situations (and liked to blurt them out as a child). Her parents keep an eagle eye her like she is a bomb that will go off at any moment (or like she is a scientific experiment and they are taking notes). There is a new student at school named Summer Dante. He is intriguing and Sage is drawn to him. He seems to understand Sage’s gifts and he has a few of his own. He encourages her to use her gifts. However, his ideas of right and wrong are a little different than Sage’s. Sage is extremely tired of her parent’s secrets and wants to find out what they are hiding. Will Sage like the answers when she gets them? Will Sage use her gifts for good or will she be drawn to the dark side? I was so excited when I received the opportunity to read Sage’s Eyes (my daughter loves V.C. Andrews books), and I was looking forward to reading a good paranormal novel. I was extremely let down by Sage’s Eyes. There is very little paranormal action in the book. It is a very blah (boring, dull) book. The book is confusing (things are not really explained until the very end of the book) and it is so hard to get into it (I never did). Most of the book is devoted to Sage’s thinking (especially about how cute Summer is). Her internal dialogue took up the majority of the book (and it was monotonous). I give Sage’s Eyes 2 out of 5 stars (I did not like it). The book had so much potential but none of it was realized. We are also left with a very unsatisfying ending (like there will be another book to pick up where this one left off). I received a complimentary copy of Sage’s Eyes from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Okay so I saw V.C. Andrews and pulled the trigger. Then I did some digging and for the purposes of full disclosure I must say Mrs. Andrews is passed away. Suddenly I was even more intrigued by this book. I read this in about 3 sittings throughout two days it was a great read. There was a lot of mystery sometimes I felt like there was too much mystery. The only problem with too much mystery is once the mystery is finally revealed it seems anticlimactic. I kind of knew what was going on as I’m sure every reader will but there was always something just outside of my grasp. The “mystery” wasn’t as jaw dropping as I’d hoped but none the less the author certainly packs quite the punch towards the end. The Story, a little girl is adopted and is odd. Her adoptive parents aren’t very nice to her and she is just a peach. I could not understand why her adoptive mother was so cold. Even when everything is revealed I still had a tough time reconciling the reasoning with her actions. I’m still scratching my head over it. Later once Sage becomes older and more assertive my heart broke for her all the more. Once she finds someone whom she can relate to she is let down again and again. Sage begins to piece things together and very soon all the cards will be drawn. The Characters, Sage was my favorite along with her uncle and her adoptive father. I felt like Sage was always under attack which I didn’t understand because she was a wonderful daughter. I wish her family had been more open and forward with her. The relationship she had with her uncle was my favorite he was always looking out for her and trying to take care of her even from far away. The ugly people she went to school with were vile and could not appreciate what a gift they had. Sage’s character definitely stood above the rest. The End, okay so I mentioned a bit of an anticlimactic revelation towards the end. Well that just has to deal with all of the family secrets. I felt as though they really weren’t that serious to where Sage could not know the truth. I wish her family would have trusted her more. Okay…So that punch the author packs at the end is like a punch in the face! I did not see that coming so I did enjoy the jaw dropping twist and I especially enjoyed the way Sage handled the situation. I’m happy I picked this one up it was quite enjoyable. I wish the author would have given us more details about all of the secrets but hey that’s okay it was still a good read. I do love the very, very end Sage gets the one thing she has wanted for a very long time. I was happy to see her finally blossom into the bright beautiful girl that was in hiding all along. My Rating 3.5 Eerie, Mysterious, and sometimes disturbing, I wish the ending was more detailed Stars

I expected this story to have a much different outcome. The whole thing was rather hum drum, nothing to put you on the "edge of your seat", and what seems to be a common thread of incest.

Sage's Eyes by V.C. Andrews Sage is having it tough, her parents are majorly restrictive, which makes it hard for her to have friends. She has a personal struggle, she is given to predictions and visions, but every time she shares these her mother and father restrict her more. After years of counseling, and therapy, she has learned to keep these occurrences to herself. This does not stop her parents from analyzing and determining her actions like she is manacle and evil in her intentions. When a new kid moves into her small town things will come to a head, but because of his interference she is able to learn the secrets her parents are hiding.

3.5 stars---SAGE’S EYES by V.C.Andrews is a stand alone, YA, paranormal story line focusing on a young sixteen year old girl named Sage Healy. Sage believes she is different than her friends, her parents, and most of the people she meets. She has ‘supernatural’ gifts that cannot be explained, and confronting her parents only results in punishment or threats of a different kind. Told from first person point of view (Sage) SAGE’S EYES follows Sage from childhood to sixteen years of age wherein our heroine will meet a young man, not unlike herself-Summer Dante-whose abilities and ‘gifts’ are similar to Sage’s but Summer uses his gifts for different purposes. What ensues is the building relationship between Sage and Summer, and the realization that Sage has been kept in the dark for most of her life. The truth will not be revealed until the very end of the story line. SAGE’S EYES is a slow building story line while our heroine ‘tells’ the story of her life: her parent’s treatment of, and attempts to control their adopted daughter; and the story of a young girl who has no idea what power she holds within. Because the first half of the novel covers the earlier years, and Sage’s attempts to integrate into school, SAGE’S EYES reads like a written narrative and sometimes gets lost in the explanations and text. The second half follows our heroine as she finds herself falling for a young man who may or may not be what he claims to be. Because SAGE’S EYES is a young adult story line it has all of the ‘hallmarks’ of the genre: mean girls, misunderstood heroine, controlling or nasty parents; and a heroine who is loved by all of the boys, and hated by all of the girls. Some of the content is very familiar and reflective of other young adult story lines. The world building centers in and around Sage Healy-her abilities, her powers, her gifts, and her need to do what is right and good but also focuses on secrets that have yet to be revealed and herein lies a bit of the problem with the story-not only does the reader not know anything about the heroine’s abilities, but the heroine herself is kept in the dark until the final pages of the story. It is a frustrating conundrum because at some point the long, drawn out buildup was less than surprising in the end. SAGE’S EYES is an easy read; a YA story with a little bit of the paranormal; suspense and mystery; and a conflict resolution that was underwhelming and very familiar.
