The two authors got together and decided to tell the same story but from the point of view of two different characters. I do recommend you read Leocardo's story first. I think everything makes a little more sense if you do it that way. Aniela's story then fills in the details and answers the questions that you were left with after reading Leocardo's story.
The basic premise is that there is this island nation called Edaion. People on this island have magical abilities but they can only use them publicly in the winter when the tourists are all kicked off. Sometimes the island calls people too it as is the case with Leocardo, his sister Odette and his dog. The island apparently needs their special abilities to help it protect its citizens. Odette strangely develops the ability to draw even though she's been blind since birth. It's this drawing that pulls them into their new life on Edaion.
Through the Eyes of Leocardo is obviously told from Leocardo's point of view. Originally a citizen of Spain, he is not terribly happy with their new situation. Odette seems to adapt more quickly. This story tells of his struggle to adapt and figure out what is going on and his growing interest in Aniela, a native of the island, and royalty. I liked this story but Leocardo kind of annoyed me a little. To me he was a little overly dramatic at times.Read more ›
This version of the story I received is told by our main character, Aniela (aka Ana). She is from one of the royal families of Edaion. She has just been crowned princess much to her Tatiana's dismay. Tatiana is Aniela's older sister who also has a twin named Theodore. Tatiana is a troublemaker and is looked down by her family, specifically their mother. Ana is seen as the perfect daughter by her mom. Ana hates that her mom controls every aspect of her life. But Ana does find reprieve when she helps run an orphanage called Phoenix and through her music. During practice she befriends a blind girl named Odette. One night while they are at a party, an incident occurs with Odette. It is from then that Ana can't shake the feeling that there is something very odd about Odette. Ana keeps finding these mysterious drawings around Odette and doesn't think of anything of them at first. But could they mean more than she thought?
I really loved this read. The concept is very intriguing. Aniela is a princess, but she doesn't act like a spoiled brat or anything. She never abuses her power unless one of her friends was at risk and I liked that. She is very smart and wise beyond her years . Definitely much wiser than her awful mother. You ever seen Mommie, Dearest? Yeah, a little like that but with a little less yelling and no abuse.Read more ›
Ana meets some new arrivals to the island, Leocardo and his sister Odette. Odette is blind and Leo is very protective of her. After being on the island Odette display's some unusual gifts, this brings Ana and Leo together as they research what is happening to Odette.
Leo and Ana's connection grows over the course of the story blossoming into first love. This story is unique and refreshing in a world overrun with more of the same stories written different ways. Leo's plight to help Odette, Ana's struggle to find her place in a world that is full of special people, and the love that is displayed from many different relationships makes this a truly fascinating story that lovers of fantasy will be able to sink their teeth into.
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Blind Sight Through the Eyes of Leocardo Reyes Ermisenda Alvarez.
I received these books free direct from authors for review but as always this does not affect my review in anyway, the opinions I voice are honestly held.
I've reviewed both books together - the length and quality of editing of both is very good - none of the oft seen grammar and spelling errors ( a recent book mentioned jewellery made of 18 carrot gold - my horse would love that but not sure I would! Sadly there sort of errors along with misuse of your/you're are all too common in kindle books) these are self published books so congratulations to the authors for not falling in to that trap.
Well, onto the story...I was intrigued at the idea of the same story written from two different points of view and by two different authors and I wasn't let down. They worked well to keep the cohesion of the basic story together and I found is fascinating looking at incidents from a second viewpoints. As the old saying goes - two sides to every story and these books certainly prove that. I think it would have worked better though if they'd been sold as one book, still kept separate but as one novel. I know readers can choose to buy both or just one but feel that you need to read both to get the best from the story. Many things that puzzle in one book are explained in the other.
I found Odette to be quite a cold person - I know she has major problems but I just didn't really feel any empathy with her in contrast to her friends the princess Aniela who has to overcome a bullying and over controlling mother.Read more ›
