His second book, however, moves away from Sindra and into the wilds of a faraway planet where the society is far more primitive but no less filled with manipulation and difficult emotional situations.
Sariah is left behind on this new planet to make a home for herself amongst a small clan of nomadic hunter gatherers. Her entrance to the clan is secured by the fact that she has an ability that makes her special, but at the same time this ability makes her a target for a manipulative force within the tribe who fears her. Sariah is a threat because she is different and must find a way to gain enough trust from those who support her to stake her claim and fulfil her destiny.
While I certainly missed the technology and telepathic abilities of the Sindrans, I was ultimately still very satisfied with this book. The characters are, once again, vividly drawn and Mr Bruns has again managed to write a well-crafted and compelling tale. He plays with the power structures within small groups with an astute hand, and describes a beautiful landscape and its people in a way that reminded me of the Khoi-San tribes of Southern Africa.
I also admire the way in which he manages to move the action to a completely different setting without losing the essence of the story he began in the first book.
For readers who enjoy well-written stories set in familiar albeit alien places, this is definitely worth reading. Furthermore, one needn't read book one in order to enjoy book two. Due to the differences and the well-structured introduction, Sight stands on its own as a great piece of writing.
David, I looks forward to Book 3 - does it describe how the rest of the family is doing? You left it as the family will have some difficult times in front of them. I am hoping for a good outcome.
Danger abounds in "Sight", book two of The Dream Guild Chronicles, and David Bruns again succeeds in crafting a stimulating, at times breathtaking, story. In contrast to the advanced technology and futuristic mindset of "Irradiance", "Sight" centers on a clan with a more primitive lifestyle, but this only serves to heighten the intrigue. This book spotlights Sariah's experiences as she merges her powers and insight with the customs of her new family and begins to fall in love. Allusions to mature material make this appropriate reading for older adolescents, teenagers, and adults who enjoy fantasy and sci-fi writing. In order to fully understand the storyline, it is necessary to first read "Irradiance," and followers of the series will be anxiously awaiting the next installment, as "Sight" paves the way for book three. While not ending on a nail-biting cliffhanger, there is more than enough plot material put forth to anticipate the next story.
I received a complimentary copy of this e-book in exchange for an honest review.
