The Eyes of Bats
by Hubert E. Devine

Will Alexander is on a journey of the heart and soul, searching for something elusive, something missing from his life—something obscured by the chaotic circumstances of his life and the mists of uncertainty. Blind to obvious truths, he is unable to see clearly what that elusive something is or where it may be found. He is on a perilous odyssey, cast toward an unknown destiny at the mercy of fate and chance. Having dropped out of university, he is an unlikely member of the Dark Angels, an outlaw motorcycle club in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Contending with violence in the streets and at home, and in conflict with the law, he is driven ultimately to a decision, an inflection point, that will define the remainder of his life. Twenty years later, the nature and direction of his journey begin to come into sharper resolution. He comes to see what he must do to find what has been missing over most of his lifetime—to fill the void in his life and finally give it a completeness he did not fully comprehend it lacked. This takes him from Nova Scotia to the other side of the world. An expansive, spellbinding tale of generational mythology, the mysterious dance of fate and chance, and the circumstances and decisions that shape us, The Eyes of Bats concludes the multi-generational family saga begun by the author in his novel All the Stars in the Sky. These two novels give voice to themes of tragedy, struggle, hope, redemption, and triumph.

Hubert E. Devine has had a calling to write stories since he was a child. A lover of words, ideas, and beauty in all its forms, he holds degrees in philosophy and ancient and modern languages from Saint Mary’s University and Dalhousie University. Hubert lives in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, devoting his time to writing, philosophy, motorcycling, and his family.
