Blind Sight Through The Eyes of Leocardo Reyes (Blind Sight #1 Leocardo) by Ermisenda Alvarez

Goodreads Summary
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. 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.

In this volume: 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.

My Review:

The Blind Sight novels are 2 different books written by different authors. They cover the same period of time and give you the same events from 2 different points of view. I had never read anything like this before and found it very intriguing.

In Blind Sight Through The Eyes of Leocardo Reyes, Leo and his teenage sister Odette were living their lives in Spain when suddenly they were transported to the island Edaion with no memory of how they got there. Leo really struggles with his new life. Odette is blind but suddenly she's drawing pictures. Who is trying to tell her something? What are they trying to say?

I enjoyed reading this book. I did have some trouble getting into it. I was a little confused as to how they suddenly got to Edaion. Once I got into it I really enjoyed the book and couldn't wait to see what happened next. There were some parts that I would've enjoyed more background and detail.

I like Leo. He loves his sister and did his best to take care of her. He's a good guy and I enjoyed reading from his point of view.

His sister Odette was a pretty typical teenage girl. She was totally blind but dealt with that pretty well. She started drawing pictures and had no memory of doing it. I really liked her.

This was a fun story to read and I am looking forward to reading the book through Aniela’s eyes. I was glad that I read this book 1st because I got to learn about the island as Leo did.
