How Both Blind Sight Books Work Together



My Thoughts How Both Blind Sight Books Work Together:

I read Leocardo's story first and found that this order works best. Leocardo's story has somewhat of a mystery appeal to it as one tries to understand why he and his sister on on the island of Edaion. We are introduced to other characters - most briefly - and one wonders why these characters act like they do, but there is no background for them.

In Aniela's story, one learns the backgrounds of the characters introduced in Leocardo's story. If Aniela's story is read first, the mystery behind the island would be spoiled. This story felt more like a companion and not a stand alone as compared to Leocardo's.

I did enjoy the plot to both of these books and enjoyed how they worked together, but sadly, these just weren't for me.

Learn more about Blind Sight:

A blind girl drawing is abnormal even on the magical island of Edaion where leaves brush themselves into piles in the middle of the night. So when Odette Reyes, a girl blind from birth, begins to experience ominous side effects of the island's "gift," her brother Leocardo and best friend Aniela must figure out what the doctors cannot. As an immigrant, Leocardo is not biased by accepted rules of magic and determines that Odette's drawings are premonitions. Aniela grew up with magic and knows premonitions are impossible. She determines Odette is a medium channeling voiceless spirits.

Who is right? Whose eyes will you read through?

Both books are "volume one" you can read one without the other and still get a complete story, but you won't see how the characters interpret the same situation differently.

Buy the book! Both volumes are available as an e-book for Kindle (Aniela's vol. / Leocardo's vol.) and Nook (Aniela's vol. / Leocardo's vol.) Don't have an e-reader, pick up a PDF on Smashwords (Aniela's vol. / Leocardo's vol.)

The paperback special edition will be available in the fall (northern hemisphere).

The authors:

Eliabeth wrote her first mini-series in second grade when the teacher told her she was not old enough to write a chapter book. Regrettably, for fear of turning into a starving artist, Eliabeth played it safe in college and is now a recent William Jewell graduate with a BA in International Business and Japanese. She now returns to what she truly loves, creating worlds for people to escape to and characters for them to fall in love with.

  Ermisenda began writing Harry Potter fan-fiction at the age of twelve and started developing her own writing at fourteen when she joined play sites and completed her first crime novel at fifteen. Although her favorite genres were crime and fantasy, she reads a bit of everything. Driven by the desire to evoke the kaleidoscope of emotions her favorite authors are able to, she kept writing. Growing up bilingual amongst her Spanish family in Australia, she found a love and deep appreciation for language and the power it wielded. She is now a Psychology major at the University of Newcastle. Together, they write as Ermilia.

I received a copy of this book from the authors for this tour. I was not required to write a positive review, but instead, one that gives my honest opinion.
