Book Tour: Beyond the Eyes trilogy by Rebekkah Ford + Interview
Paige knows evil exists in this world, but she never imagined it would want something from her.
In the small town of Astoria, Oregon, surrounded by deep forest and endless mountains, another world thrives . . . a menacing one where dark spirits dwell in soulless humans. Seventeen-year- old Paige Reed lives in this lush, picturesque setting. She’s not your average teen, though she appears to be. Not only is she heartsick, but she’s been receiving cryptic premonitions from a ghostly voice since the age of four. After she hears a haunting message about herself, supernatural occurrences begin to confuse her.
Nathan Caswell seems to peer into Paige’s soul, evoking a magnetic energy between them they cannot deny. They’re connected. But he’s no ordinary guy. He tracks dark spirits and becomes alarmed when they set their sights on Paige.
When two power-hungry malevolent beings make demands on her, she realizes then the fate of mankind rest in her hands. Her world quickly turns inside out where the impossible becomes possible, and in the end she’s faced with a life changing decision that will not only alter her existence but the world as she knows it.
Can a deeply troubled teen overcome her own demons in order to fight those lurking about? With the past and present colliding, Paige must make the ultimate mortal choice. Will it be the right one?

Now immortal, Paige is emotionally and physically stronger than ever. She must find the location of the ancient incantations to prevent mass genocide. But the war against good and evil is spawning another war–a battle between the dark spirits themselves. Paige is saddled in the center of both growing revolutions and is ready to take on the dark forces. But Nathan’s overprotectiveness prevents her from taking action, and he’s hiding things.
Paige’s personal life gets more complicated when Brayden arrives back in town and offers the equal partnership she desperately craves from Nathan. Then there’s Carrie and Tree, her two best friends and only family she has left. Unfortunate circumstances thrust them into Paige’s dark world, giving her no choice but to allow Nathan to arm them with combat techniques in hope they’ll be able to protect themselves.
Meanwhile, Paige is having visions and discovering abilities she was unaware of. When Anwar comes to visit, his weird behavior alarms her. Could he be turning to the dark side?
Time is running out. Paige not only needs to find the incantations but also to untangle the bands around her heart and make a decision that could leave her with a life worse than death–a life of betrayal from the ones she trusted most.

If you could have the power to control evil, would you want it?
In a rainy, misty town filled with moss-covered trees and dwarfed by wooded mountains, Astoria, Oregon, holds many secrets and eighteen-year-old Paige Reed is one of them. She’s immortal, has magical abilities she’s discovering, and harbors King Solomon’s power inside her. With his incantations, she can control the dark spirits who lurk among societies in soulless humans.
But her problems are mounting.
Her best friend slips into a coma, and Paige must tap into her newfound powers—powers she’s unsure of—to save her.
Through this ordeal, Bael who once commanded a legion of black souls, forces Paige to make a pact with him, causing her to abandon the ones she loves. When she finds out where Solomon’s spells are and tells Bael, she begins to have second thoughts about her agreement with him.
Will she risk everything to claim the spells that hold the power to control the dark spirits so she can enslave him? Or will her one true love find her before she makes a horrible mistake that could damage her for life?
And most importantly, what does the Devil’s third mean and what is Bael really up to?

Hi Rebekkah and welcome to Deb's Crazy Obsession. I'm so excited to have you here!
Thank you for having me on your wonderful blog.
This book tour is featuring your Beyond the Eyes trilogy. Can you tell us a bit about it?
It’s about a heartsick teenage girl named Paige Reed, who turns into a kickass fighter against evil. She’s been receiving premonitions from a ghostly voice since the age of four and is destined to protect humanity against the dark spirits dwelling inside soulless humans. This trilogy is packed full of romance, heartache, magic, mystery, suspense, friendship, love triangles, and a dash of spookiness thrown in the mix.
Where did you get the idea for the series?
The concept came to me one day, then exploded from there.
What is the hardest part about writing?
I think writing the first chapter and plotting everything out is the hardest thing about writing.
The first or the last sentece, which is harder to write?
The first sentence.
How do you handle negative feedback or reviews?
I read all the outstanding reviews I've received and wonderful comments from other readers about my books. Doing those things takes the sting of a bad review away.
What or who inspire you to write?
Reading other stories or watching a TV show or movie sometimes inspires me to write.
Is there anything you *need* to have when you write?
Back support. The chair I have sucks, so for now I roll up a towel and stick it behind my back, which forces me to sit up straight.
What can someone learn by looking at your bookshelves?
Good question. Learn about me, right? Um . . . I'm open-minded, I love the classic books, philosophy, theology, history, and the paranormal world.
How would you describe a perfect day?
It's cloudy, rainy, and cool outside. I'm in my sweats. I have nowhere to be, no deadlines, the house is clean, it's all good. My husband is home and something yummy is cooking or baking in the oven. I have a cup of coffee and reading a good book. Later on I watch a fantastic movie with my husband, and we have a variety of finger foods spread out on the coffee table. Afterwards, or maybe before we watch our movie, I write my story for a while and everything is flowing together. I'm in the "zone."
Tell us five random facts about yourself!
On the back of my right shoulder I have a small tattoo of a Chinese symbol that means "truth." I can't have kids, I have a wonderful marriage, I don't like the city, and I'm very loyal.
