I also stopped kicking myself — I was sure that he was failing because I was doing something wrong as his manager. But now I know that I tried my best and bent over backwards to do everything I could to make him a success. My coworkers want to use me as their personal tech support. Both your response to my letter and the commenters pointed out that there are pros developing a reputation for being helpful and competent and cons fostering dependency, getting stuck with drudge work, wasting my time to my situation.
A little over a year later, I can say that both of these things came to pass! The department director is thrilled with my performance. The downside was that since I was now involved in one technical project, I became the supposed expert in all technology not only for my team but the entire department, and the IT requests increased. Plus, though many of my coworkers are lovely and respectful, a few of my immediate team members seemed to resent having to learn a new system and any efforts to help them be more independent in using it.
I was particularly proud of myself in one especially egregious example, when a coworker called me into her cubicle because she needed help on something urgent. While I had originally planned to stay longer, the whole experience accelerated my plans of going back to school to get the degree that is necessary to move up in my field. Thank you to Alison for her insight, and to the lovely commenters for their commiseration! I am an avid reader of the site and am sure the advice here will continue to serve me well. Hi Alison! I just wanted to give you an update and clear up some of the concerns in the comments section.
The situation went fine, I was just panicking. Thanks for the advice, it really helped me get my head on straight. Thanks for the advice! Can I ask my boss not to come to my goodbye happy hour? I wanted to give you an maybe not too exciting update on my letter. First, thank you SO much Alison and the commentariat for the thoughtful advice. I read every single comment and I realized I was taking the situation too personally. Between the increased anxiety from working for her and feelings of failure for being able to make the situation work, I was feeling really raw emotionally.
Reading all your perspectives helped me to step out of my emotions and see the issue more objectively. We started the company happy hour an hour before the business day ended to have a little time before the senior executives attended. After 2 hours, I said my goodbyes and she paid for my drink!
Then I went to meet up with my work friends and drank in celebration of never working for Martha again. Jane and I were careful to not look like we were leaving together. All in all, a successful mission. Thanks again for taking time to answer my letter and provide great advice. My boss and grandboss have a habit of sending out group emails to our team of five with vague directives and complaints. The thing is, I AM producing my expected targets. I work for a niche publication and crank out articles regularly. But my boss has mentally checked out he wants to move back to his hometown in a year and a half and step down and my grandboss likes to simultaneously micromanage and appear hands-off.
Is this just a quirk of management I have to deal with? Is there something more I can do or am I overreacting and treating this as more problematic than it is? The way to deliver a message that only applies to some people in a group is to talk to those people one-on-one. Given that, the best response is probably to do your own analysis of the situation when you get these emails. That said, some of these emails sound harder to interpret. I started a new job in April. This past week I was sent to training in the U.
I made my grandboss aware and coordinated with him to book my flights on his company card. The hotel required him to fill out a form to allow me to pay for the hotel on his company card. I sent him the info he needed to fill out the form. On the Friday before I left I reminded him again, indicating that I was flying out that weekend and he needed to submit it before I left.
I was scared to be stranded in a foreign country without anywhere to stay. My manager felt awful and offered to fill out the form with his personal credit card and be reimbursed by the company, which I accepted. This whole situation was embarrassing, scary, and entirely avoidable.
My question is how to address this with my grandboss when we both return to work? Should I being it up? Wait for him to say something?

If he apologizes, how do I respond? Is part of this on me for not trying harder to make him submit the form? I want to respond professionally without downplaying how serious and scary it was. But regardless, this is on him, not you. Is there something I could have done differently to avoided this happening? I am surrounded by and am able to work very effectively with people who have different political views than mine, though occasionally we will get into a friendly!
During a recent conversation involving politics with the head of my division, he shared that in Canada you can get arrested for calling someone the wrong gender pronoun. This is fake news: not just a different political viewpoint on actual facts, but misinformation he was fed at some point.
Is there any diplomatic way to bring this up to him? Is there a good way to do this or should I just keep my mouth shut? After doing phone interviews with the Right Away group, we moved on to conducting in-person interviews with them, while also trying to set up phone interviews with the Maybes. One of those Right Away candidates had a great phone interview and a great in-person interview and took the job within 24 hours of offering. Nope, moving is different. But you have a perfectly understandable reason — you moved. Printing out Ask a Manager posts and leaving them for the person being discussed.
Do you know of any cases where a question and resulting comments are ever shared with the person being discussed? For example, the bad director discussed recently. The person did then stop the food policing. We have flex time, people work different hours, and as long as your work is done in a timely and quality way, then management usually leaves you to your own devices.
I think they probably start out as work-related conversations but then wander into more social territory. Is this pretty typical? My concern is that people are getting a little too relaxed at work and putting off the actual work that needs to be done and then quality is suffering quality is hard to measure in my job so this is something difficult to track.
My concern with addressing it is that it would kill morale. So if you think it does need to be addressed, how would you do so? And asking people to return their focus to work is fine, as is digging into whether they have enough to do. If so, and they still have a lot of time every day for socializing, do you need to revisit the goals? For the most part, I love my job and my coworkers about as much as anyone can. I even enjoy working for my current boss! This is really only a problem with certain people. Most of us work around their difficulties, hem and haw a little bit to our significant others, and then move on with our lives.
But not my boss. Once you do something that displeases her, it becomes fuel for her to attack literally everything about you. Regardless, it bothers me. She also tends to hire people who have similar attitudes. In fact, every person in our department is someone she knew outside of work first. So they tend to join in on her fun. But this only happens when it becomes personal. But is there a way to professionally handle situations like this?

We learn a LOT about Hunt and how he got to where he is now, who he used to be, why he does what he does. We also meet some great characters, not just Hunt. I love it! This series is most certainly NOT a series you can read as standalone novels. I am giving Eyes to See 5 stars! A fantastic start to a really promising series!
I will definitely be following this series to the end! View 2 comments. Really, truly see. I've never been so frightened in my entire life. Eyes to See features a unique and emotionally-gripping character who has spent the last several years of his life without his wife, his daughter, or his ability to see. Jeremiah Hunt unintentionally sacrifices his sight, believing that his actions will help him in the search for Elizabeth, his missing child. Now he's left to deal with the consequences, completely blinded when exposed to light with the ability to see mostly vague shapes and outlines in the dark.
But with the loss of one ability, he gains another. He can see ghosts. In addition, the ghosts can lend him their vision with what he refers to as their 'ghost sight'. Jeremiah has dedicated every moment of his life to finding any clues or information regarding the whereabouts of Elizabeth. He's constantly plagued by the pain, the loss, and the guilt that he has carried with him ever since her disappearance.
He's a desperate, lonely man who will do absolutely anything to find his little girl.
Jeremiah's assistance with a gruesome string of murders, a case that a Boston PD detective drags him in to, brings him closer to finding what has happened to his daughter. The case is confusing with an elusive killer and a motive that is difficult to determine. If Jeremiah has any hope of solving the mystery, then he must seek outside help. Fortunately, a witch named Denise, her friend Dmitri, and Jeremiah's two companions, Whisper and Scream, all play a part in finding who, or what, is responsible for the murders.
While the beginning of Eyes to See didn't grab me, I found myself fascinated by the remainder of the story. I couldn't get enough of Jeremiah's character, the flashbacks to when his daughter first went missing, or the mystery that slowly unraveled and had me reading as quickly as I could because I was dying to know the who and why. I would recommend Eyes to See to fans of intense, emotional stories with a dark atmosphere. The sequel, King of the Dead , is scheduled to release November 27, The silence of the dead is a terrible thing, but it is a silence with a sense of finality to it, an air of completion.
The silence of the missing is anything but. It communicates without words, its message clear and unhindered. Find me, it screams, find me, and your heart breaks to hear it so loud in the empty places that should be filled with laughter and the joyful sounds of life. Oct 12, Melissa rated it really liked it. First line in the book: I gave up my eyes in order to see more clearly. With the cover, blurb and that line, I expect you are thinking this is just a total horror fest with lots of gore.
Actually you would be wrong. I mean, there is some horror but not in a overwhelmingly keep you up at night kind , lots of ghosts, and a little gore, but really it is more about a man's obsession into what happened to his missing daughter. And what he is willing to do to get her back.
It is actually at times an First line in the book: I gave up my eyes in order to see more clearly. It is actually at times an emotional read and you do get involved with his search and desperation despite the fact that at times he is a jerk to other people. Within the main story, the plot shifts back and forth to what happened in his past and his present. The shift is to allow you to gain more insight as to what brought him here to the moment and why he makes his decisions.
It is not abrupt as each chapter is labeled then and now.
See a Problem?
Sometimes the shift was frustrating for me only because I wanted to know more. However, I agree with the decision in the end and was glad that not too much information was provided because it would be overload at times. I also found the way he dealt with his blindness interesting. He was not totally blind as he was gifted with a form of sight in total darkness. He also had a way of sensing things so he could often manage being independent.
He also saw ghosts and "others" as well as the gifted. Those that could also do otherworldly things but were human otherwise. I don't want to say more as this book is a good puzzle. All information is given to you and you do figure things out before the characters. However, you know they have knowledge you lack and so you aren't sure how the ending will play out.
Therefore, I give this ghost mystery 4 stars. I really enjoyed this read. Oh and for those wanting a bit of romance, let me say that you do get a hint of one. It is sweetly done and could continue if this book becomes a series. The whys and wherefores of Jeremiah Hunt's world are fascinating, a mix of grim reality and arcane practicality. As the chapters switch between the past and present, Hunt's growth from comfortable academic to iron-hard, isolated mystic unfolds page by page.
While I loved all of the chapters from Hunt's perspective, I could have done without the present-tense chapters from other characters' points of view. They never reached Hunt's level of charisma and interest, and I found myself anxious to get The whys and wherefores of Jeremiah Hunt's world are fascinating, a mix of grim reality and arcane practicality. They never reached Hunt's level of charisma and interest, and I found myself anxious to get back to our hero.
Hunt's personal magnetism is well established from page one. Riding along on an exorcism provides a front row seat for how ghosts and magic interact in his world, and so much action mixed with exposition gives the reader a lot of information in an interesting way. I was captivated by this meticulously imagined ghost world, though I enjoyed Hunt's expertise more than the flashbacks of how he had come by it.
If I could have spent the whole book in the first half of Hunt's point of view, this book would be one of my favorites. Unfortunately, while the world building never lost it's magic, by the last few chapters the plot comes un-spooled. The exposition that was so interesting from a magical theory perspective becomes less natural when it's plot threads are being tied off one after another in haphazard fait accompli.
If nothing else, however, Nassise has piqued my interest in his other books, in hopes of finding more of those elements that were so captivating. Sexual Content : None. Oct 24, William Bentrim rated it it was amazing. Nassise has created a bold new protagonist in Jeremiah Hunt. Hunt is on an emotional quest which forces him to interact with Whisper and Scream.

I wasn't really sure what this book was all about when I originally picked it up but I am so happy i went with my gut instinct. I love the magic aspect of this book and the main character is just enough like Constantine from Hellblazer to make me adore him haha. Mar 13, Rebecca rated it liked it Shelves: book-chick-city-reviews The novel kicks off with a ghostly exorcism, whereby the reader is introduced to Jeremiah Hunt, the protagonist of the novel, and also introduced to his unique supernatural gift — he can see the dead.
Hunt made a Faustian bargain with the world of magick, whereby he traded his eyesight for the gift of seeing the dead. As a result, he can see perfectly in total darkness, but is blind in any kind of light. Now you may be wondering about the reason for this Faustian bargain. His daughter has mysteriously disappeared from under his nose, seemingly without a trace. Hunt is obsessed with finding out what happened to her, and whether she is still alive. Five years later and he is still none the wiser, despite his understanding with Detective Stanton that allows him to see any leads on the case in return for consulting on certain crimes.
However, there is a certain animosity between Stanton and Hunt, which is far from a healthy working relationship and could prove costly for both of them. Jeremiah is an interesting character, with his love for his daughter being the driving force for everything he does. This leaves him isolated from everyone else, with his wife Anne having left him as a result of his obsession. He sees himself as a lone ranger, determined to discover the truth alone, with only his two ghostly companions, Scream and Whisper, for company. Scream is a ghostly bulk of a man, who can provide Hunt with super strength whenever he needs it and put fear into any surrounding humans that are causing Hunt any problems.
Denise has prophetic dreams linking her to Hunt, causing her to seek him out to understand the meaning of her dreams. Both Dmitri and Denise are highly wrapped up in the supernatural world, and quick to aid Jeremiah in anything that he needs. However, it seems a little unlikely for Jeremiah to be so quick to trust them, as he has spent so long seeking answers alone, but just lets these two into all of his secrets without question. Overall, this book was an enjoyable read, a good mystery to get into that provided lots of twists and turns, with several elements leading up to the final conclusion.
Where the series will progress after this first book is unclear, but there is certainly potential for further mysteries that can be solved using the dead as a witness. I read this book the other day and wanted to wait a bit before I actually wrote up the review. Seriously, you guys. The main character here is Jeremiah Hunt.
Regular, right up until his daughter goes missing. I thought the world building of this one was great! Its a modern world just like ours, only our main character is now blind to our world and can see all the paranormal around us. Ghosts, specters, witches, and even shifters. Hunt even makes his living by performing exorcisms when he needs some cash to help further the search for his daughter.
Character wise, I think Nassise did a fantastic job of giving us characters that you want to know more about and want to help. Hoping against hope that his daughter is still alive and letting his own life slide because he is so wrapped up in that hope. He loses his job, loses his wife, all because he wont give up on finding his daughter. As a mom, it struck a chord with me and I totally connected with that.
Its one of those books you get lost in. Contains violence, language. Finishing the first chapter, I knew I had read this exact same book a hundred times before I even knew Eyes to See exists. Overdosed on well-worn, if not outright roadkill metaphors that occasionally inspire debate over their validity, the author helpfully explains every step of why what is done, effectively snuffing the flames of any momentum or emotional pull previously built or hinted at.
Just as helpful are the reminders of why the main protagonist, Mr. Hunt, does what he does in every other Finishing the first chapter, I knew I had read this exact same book a hundred times before I even knew Eyes to See exists. Hunt, does what he does in every other paragraph so we won't forget what's important: For Hunt to investigate his daughter's disappearance. I will tell you what I told the book literally, I argue with books as if that would change anything : "Revenge literature breathes missing relatives, dude, especially absent wives and daughters.
It's such a staple, it's impossible to ever forget about it. If you have to make a father's quest about his daughter, at least stop reminding us with the words that the father's quest is about his daughter, and don't you forget it. We won't. There is also a lack of elegance present, and when I say 'elegance,' I'm not talking flowery language or a limit on swear words. It's the writing. While solid in general, it is boring flyby metaphors , seemingly patronizing constant reminders, reiterations , choppy uninspired transitions and what in the world is wrong with that blindness?
I didn't pay for THAT blindness. It's not the better-than-Riddick-and-kinda-SinCity-y blindness that irks me so, but that the author doesn't go through with his own approach to it. As an example, in the first NOW chapters, it is described that Hunt is blinded by light, but gets a gray vista when it's dark. In those chapters, Hunt also perfectly describes a "lone lightbulb" that blinds him completely. Completely blinded, he knows it's one lonely lightbulb and goes on to destroy it by way of punching it.
Completely blind, he knows exactly what it is, where it is, and strangely that a punch will be enough to destroy it and restore total darkness so finally, he can see. How did he do that? And I'm not even talking about the fact that a lightbulb dangling from the ceiling will just dangle more when you punch it, except when it's installed directly at the ceiling, but I'm having difficulty imagining Hunt jumping that high and with enough velocity to kill it.
It's probably an okay book if not viewed from my perspective. The writing has a flow to it, appears solid, and there is a story. Entirely readable. If you're looking for something that engages and challenges your mind, something smart and possibly smarter than you, I would say, "Nah, not this one.
Jeremiah Hunt is a bit different from you and I. Ghosts and other supernatural beings are an everyday sight for Hunt,and he makes a tentative living as an exorcist of sorts. This is how we meet him at the beginning of Eyes to See,on his way to a job to get rid of an angry ghost visiting vengeance on the group of people that watched from their windows as she was raped,beaten,and left for dead,and did nothing to help. When Hunt is called to the scene of a murder by Detective Stanton,a cop with motives that are as shadowy as the creatures Hunt sees on a daily basis.
Hunt is a tortured soul,still reeling from the disappearance of his daughter five years ago,under his care,and the subsequent disintegration of his marriage as a result of his all-consuming obsession to find Elizabeth. With the help of hedge witch Denise and barkeep and so much more Dmitri,his search will lead him through the dark heart of a killer,to a former insane asylum where secrets and pain are almost living,breathing things.
Great characters,a world populated by creatures that go bump,and a new hero in Jeremiah Hunt,make this a strong start to a new series. Fans of a little police procedural served up with their urban fantasy should love this one! Oct 16, Book Twirps rated it really liked it. Desperate to find her, Jeremiah becomes obsessed with her case, but his daughter is nowhere to be found. As the years pass, his life begins to unravel further until he loses his job and his wife because of it. With nothing left to lose, Jeremiah ends up performing a ritual that allows him to see ghosts and other supernatural beings.
The only downside is that he had to sacrifice his normal sight for this ability. In my opinion, this one definitely breaks the mold. The minute I read the synopsis, I knew I would love this book, and despite a few stumbles, I really enjoyed it. I really liked Jeremiah. The grief of losing his daughter has almost driven him to the brink of insanity, which makes him slightly unreliable and unpredictable.
I also really enjoyed the world that Mr. Nassise has created here. He constructed the world flawlessly. I felt like this made the action stumble a bit and it also took me out of the story when the focus was pulled away from Jeremiah. Everything seemed to fall into place too easily. If you are an urban fantasy fan or a fan of thrillers or procedurals, I would encourage you to check this series out.

Nov 10, Kt rated it it was ok Shelves: received-for-review , hardcopy. I really wanted to love this book. I mean the cover is great, and the description really pulled me in. However, I just couldn't get into reading it no matter how many times I tried. I mean the concept behind it was really intriguing, but I just couldn't make a real connection with the characters, especially the narrator, Jeremiah. To be honest, I'm not even sure why I couldn't connect as I usually get very quickly attached in first person narratives. I mean my heart broke for him in the flash ba I really wanted to love this book.
I mean my heart broke for him in the flash back sections where they showed exactly what happened when she was taken, and then the direct aftermath. However, when things came back to present day, he just seemed cold and very remote. I understand that he had to do this in order to cope, but from one extreme to the other, was a bit much. Jeremiah's absolute tunnel vision made for many missed opportunities in character development and just plain and simple emotion. At one point he did seem to wake up and care more about a person in the present, but unfortunately it didn't last for long, making that person become even more standoff towards him.
The thing that kept me holding on throughout Eyes to See was the really amazing world behind it all. There is a darker side of things going on that the ordinary person cannot see. Ironically Jeremiah's eyes were only opened to all this after he lost his real eyesight. However, he does have a unique way to see things that I found to be really intriguing. What started out as seeming to be a simple ghost story quickly became so much more. Even so, I think we have only really scratched the surface of what is in store.
I do have to say that I think I would enjoy future books a little more than this one as there was some progress in the emotional part of things. I think this book will be more enjoyable to readers who love a story with a really rich world but don't need a really strong emotional attachment to their characters. Unfortunately, I need both, but I will still give this series a second chance when the next installment comes out.
I'm really upset with Goodreads. Makes me furious, too, because the review I wrote for this book was really good, and now I don't remember what all I said. I know that I started out by saying that this review MAY contain spoilers and that I received a copy of this book through the first reads giveaway program. Beyond that, I'm not sure about anything el I'm really upset with Goodreads. Beyond that, I'm not sure about anything else that I wrote. I gave a really great summary of the book in my first review, but I'm seriously mad that all that time and effort that I spent writing it was wasted, so I'm not going to rewrite it again.
Suffice it to say, it was a really good book that I enjoyed quite a lot, and I can't wait to read the next book in the series. The only complaint I had was that sometimes Jeremiah Hunt -- the protagonist, who is BLIND -- did things that did not seem feasible for a blind man to be able to do. Like the author had written that particular part having forgotten that his protagonist was blind and then just using the magical ability to cover it up.
I'm not saying that is what happened. That is just how it felt at times. But despite those few little things, the book was still great, and as I said, I really want to read the next one in the series when it comes out. Jan 07, NaTaya Hastings rated it it was amazing Shelves: first-read-books-i-ve-won. I received a copy of this book through First Reads Giveaways. I really did. It was a great story. Jeremiah Hunt is a grieving father who, in his madness and desperation after his daughter's abduction, turns to the black arts in order to "see what cannot be seen.

During the search to find out what happened to his daughter, he ends up chasing a serial killer with some very interesting friends -- Denise, the hedge witch, and Dmitri, the beserker who can turn himself into a polar bear at will. It's a great story. There are a few little errors that should have been caught by the editor or publisher but weren't -- misspellings and wrong words mostly -- but they don't really detract from the overall plot of the story.
Also, there are a couple of times when Hunt does things that a blind man really shouldn't be able to do and the author covers it up by having him 'draw on the eyesight' of someone else near him. I understand it, but at times it seems a bit forced. However, those things really didn't take away from the overall experience for me.
I just really, really loved the book. It was very interesting and quite entertaining. I can't wait to read the next book in the series. Oct 17, Star rated it really liked it. To what lengths would you go to save your child? Jeremiah Hunt gave up everything in the search for his missing daughter: his job, his wife, and his eyesight. He was so desperate for answers he performed a ritual to help him see the unseen. This is a gritty noir story with a heavy urban fantasy undertone.

I love the fact that Hunt got his abilities from an ancient spell. He loses his sight to be able to see things that no one else can.
Oh boy does he get an interesting bargain. Let's just say that maybe some things weren't meant to be seen by mortal eyes. Hunt makes the best of his abilities and begins to excorcise ghosts. This leads him deeper and deeper into a ta I've heard a lot of good things about this book series, and finally got around to looking into it for myself.
This leads him deeper and deeper into a tangled web of the supernatural. Along with his new friends Dmitri and Denise, he will begin a long road to the truth of his daughter's disappearance many years ago, and to stand on the line protecting the world from the supernatural. Actually the Hunt series probably predates her appearance in The Heretic, but for me since I read Heretic first this was a special link. A part of me hopes for more crossovers or at least guest appearances by The Templars.
I guess we'll see. Much stranger things have happened in this strange beautiful scary world that Mr. Nassise has created. All I know for sure is that I'm loving every moment in it. Mar 12, Gail rated it really liked it.
There was something special about this book. It wasn't that the main character was the most likeable, nor was the storyline unique. Men who obsess over their career or hobby is often written about. Child abduction stories are common place. What the author did to make this story a winner in my book was create a landscape that seemed fresh and new. Magick, ghosts and other supernatural phenomena make up the darker side of this read. The police detective is rather a jerk just trying to solve severa There was something special about this book.
The police detective is rather a jerk just trying to solve several grisly murders. The witch is someone I would like to have as a friend.

It is my hope that this will turn into a series of books with the main three characters taking care of supernatural business.
