Eye Spy (Sojourning Souls) is a paranormal fantasy written by Kevin J. Hallock. Steph and C.J. Campbell live on Apple Island, on the family farm. They're survivors of a violent attack that claimed the lives of their parents and left the two siblings emotionally damaged. C.J. is now agoraphobic and is unable to leave the house unless he is sojourning, a form of mind travelling. Steph stays at home and monitors C.J.'s body while he's having an out-of-body excursion. They've become fairly accomplished at crime prevention and are currently tracking the whereabouts of Lauren, a young girl who's been kidnapped by a cult. The sheriff, a long-time family friend, acts as an intermediary for giving leads to the FBI and for collecting the rewards which are the Campbell's source of income. They're faced with foreclosure on the family farm at the hands of Doris Morris, an unethical casino owner, who wants to build on their land.
Kevin J. Hallock's Eye Spy is exciting and well-written. C.J. and Steph are compelling and sympathetic characters whose efforts to shake off the trauma of their family tragedy are heroic and inspiring. The underlying history of the agency that polices Out-of-Body Masters, such as C.J., is both creepy and intriguing. There's a lot for the reader to think about while reading Eye Spy as the out-of-body concept is well-played. There's an arch-villain OBM, Cecil, a cultist-pedophile who can exorcise them and the ex-Priest who gets to decide which OBMs are 'johnnyed'. Eye Spy is great fun, entirely unpredictable, and highly recommended.
