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?
Every book in this series comes in two volumes. The two volumes share a main plot, but is individualized to the perception and interpretation of one character. Each novel is a complete story on its own, but there are twists and secrets you’ll only learn reading both.
Through the Eyes of Leocardo Reyes
Snatched out of their life in Spain, Leocardo and his blind sister Odette find themselves on an island with no recollection of the trip. After foiled attempts to escape, Odette’s strange behavior gets worse. Even after learning the island has bestowed magic upon them both, Leocardo faces the possibility his sister is having a mental break down. Just as he thinks he is settled in, job and romantic life stable, Odette disappears.
Through the Eyes of Aniela Dawson
While Aniela tries to escape a lifestyle where obligations take priority over friendships, she befriends Odette, a blind girl with the ability to draw. Almost immediately, concerns and questions arise as Aniela suspects that Odette’s gift is far stronger than any seen before. In the middle of family turmoil and a complicated romantic relationship with Odette’s brother, Aniela faces the realization that helping her comatose friend means disobeying her mother, something she has never done before.
What are people saying about Blind Sight?
“The blind sight books have many things going for them, but what really stood out for me was the sheer creativity of the authors… It was a fresh plot. There was no formula I could use to predict the story. All I could do was read, and that’s all I wanted to do.” -Caroline Kuhne on GoodReads; Read the full review.

“It’s been a long time since I read a story cover to cover in one sitting. Blind Sight had what it took to spot weld my butt to my chair and keep me locked firmly to the pages. Bravo.” -Kyllan Brindle on Kyllan Brindle’s Blog; Read the full review.
“Blind Sight is quite a bit different from the majority of urban fantasy that I’ve read, it’s contemplative and has a slowly unfolding mystery with very interesting characters.” -Kevin on Goodreads; Read the full review.
Is it worth it to read both sides?
“Each volume may stand alone, but put them together and they become one intriguing tale of magic, friendship, and secrets.” -The Happiness Complex; Read the full review.
“Could you read one of these books and not the other and still be fulfilled? Yes. But why in the world would you? [The Blind Sight] novels are done in such a manner that they are far more than rehashing the same story from a different perspective. The characters are individual enough and bold enough to make you feel like you might just be reading two entirely different stories.” -Kyllan Brindle on Goodreads; Read the full review.
