But "The Sight" is far different from "Watership Down" in some important ways. Magic and the supernatural play a huge part in the story. The Sight of the title is a supernatural power granted to certain wolves; a kind of sixth sense, sensory projection, telepathy, and prophetic ability rolled into one. The wolf Morgra possesses the Sight, and from her hate plans to use it to fulfill a complex prophecy: summon a demonic entity called Wolfbane and create `the Man Varg,' a mysterious figure linked with a stolen human child. If the prophecy is fulfilled, Morgra can possess all of nature. Standing against her is another wolf who possesses the sight, young Larka, and her family. The plot moves through many turns as the extremely tricky prophecy propels the factions of wolves into wars against each other, plunges Larka's family into grief, and spirals closer and closer to a final confrontation between wolves, birds, men, and spirits of the dead.
"The Sight" is a busy and intricate book with a very dark tone, but it will appeal to intelligent younger readers who hunger for something more than simple fantasy.Read more ›
The Sight is an amazing book. Just like Fire Bringer, the author manages to tell a wonderful animal fantasy story while weaving in history, mythology, and religion on the way. The wolf charecters seem more human than anything at times but they also keep their natural insticts, which I find impressive. If you're a fan of Fire Bringer or just animal fantasy read this book.
Okay this is mainly the plot:
There's been this prophacy for as long as anyone can remember that reads:
"As a she-cub is whelped with a coat that is white,
And a human child is stolen to suckle the Sight..." and goes on for three stanzas 'till
"A courage is needed as deep as despair."
Anyways, a white and a black cub (Larka and Fell) are born in their Mother's home den and raised there for a while. Then their mother's sister, Morgra, curshes the pack, that they will be torn apart, one by one.
Shortly after that Larka realizes that she has "The Sight". The ability to look through the eyes of the birds and do many other things.
This book is mainly about the struggles that these wolves face, and can be confusing at times, but I believe it was a well worth the 457 pages!
