Please note, this review was written before I became a Novel Publicity employee and has not been altered since. I was not given anything other than an ARC copy of Farsighted for this review.
by Emlyn Chand
genre: paranormal young adult
Each chapter starts with a rune and a premonition about what the hero will face in that chapter. Most were obvious given the premise of the story, but it was still a neat way to start each chapter.
I enjoy well read authors who can meld the classics with modern literature, so no one should be surprised that I love Farsighted main character Alex, a blind fortune teller based on Tiresias from Oedipus Rex and Antigone who narrates the story. Farsighted follows him as he develops his abilities to see with other senses, both in the present and future.
