Twilight Eyes explores the carnival life through the eyes of narrator Slim Mackenzie. He sees the shape changing goblins for what they really are. Only Slim MacKenzie can pierce the disguises and recognize the diabolical schemes of the undead who are feeding on human suffering, thanks to the gift - or burden - of special vision afforded by his twilight eyes.
