Around the world, people die under mysterious circumstances. Each branded with an arcane sign, they are pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. When more people are missing, with similar signs appearing in and around their homes, Jason, an average New Yorker, realizes the victims are a riddle addressed to him. He is the final piece.
Emily appears, the most beautiful woman with extraordinary powers and startling amber eyes, and tells Jason that powers dormant within him are about to wake. In the world of Light- and Darksighted, he is the only person who can prevent Darkness from enslaving the world. He is the Beholder whose advent has been awaited for many years.
Setting out on a journey with Emily, Jason discovers many improbable things like Sight, Soulfusion, the Hall of Refuge, but the greatest surprise arrives the moment he realizes he has fallen in love with Emily.

"If you are a fan of storylines similar to The Matrix, then The Beholder could be its literary counterpart in the UF genre. ... Ivan's world building is fluid and tangible and, his characters are real. ... The Beholder is a well-written novel that will pull you into the storyline as though you were experiencing the reality yourself." -- Sandy, The Reading Café
"Mr. Amberlake, in my opinion, has created a literary masterpiece. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fantasy novels." -- Bethanie Armstrong, the author of "The Memory I Can't Erase"
"I was so sure that all the supernatural worlds were already exhausted. Vampires, werewolves, aliens, ghosts... Then Mr. Amberlake's novel arrived, took me by surprise and left me totally speechless. A world that no one has ever thought existed suddenly appeared. A world so perfectly built you wonder where it has been hiding before." -- Becca, a Goodreads Reviewer
"Amberlake does an excellent job of melding plot, fantastical concepts, darkness and light with a love story between Jason and his very real feeling counterpart, Emily." -- Scott J. Toney, the author of "Hearts of Avon"
