Blind Sight Through the Eyes of Leocardo Reyes by Ermisenda Alvarez
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
…they were Edaion’s slaves now.
Leocardo Reyes finds himself transported to Edaion with his blind sister, Odette. With no recollection as to how they arrived and no contact to be had with their parents, Leo has no choice but to accept his new life and try to make the best of it. When Odette starts drawing pictures, Leo tries to find answers to the questions that surround them.
Help comes in the form of Edaion’s youngest princess, Aniela Dawson. Together with Ana, Leo attempts to find out what Odette’s gift is, premonition or a medium. During all this, his world is shaken when Odette falls into a coma. Now, with his only remaining family member in danger and his budding relationship with Ana, Leo must come to terms with the life he’s destined to lead.
Full of tension and mystery, Leo brings an outsider’s perspective on Edaion and on how the immigrants learn of their powers. Partnered with Blind Sight Through the Eyes of Aniela Dawson, Leo’s perspective gives in-depth insight into Edaion, as well as giving a teaser of insight into Ana’s sister Tia.

Learn more about Blind Sight: 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. So when Odette Reyes, a girl blind from birth, begins to experience ominous side effects of the island’s “gift,” her brother Leocardo and best friend Aniela must figure out what the doctors cannot. 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.
Who is right? Whose eyes will you read through?
Both books are “volume one” you can read one without the other and still get a complete story, but you won’t see how the characters interpret the same situation differently.
Buy the book! Both volumes are available as an e-book for Kindle (Aniela’s vol. / Leocardo’s vol.) and Nook (Aniela’s vol. / Leocardo’s vol.) Don’t have an e-reader, pick up a PDF on Smashwords (Aniela’s vol. / Leocardo’s vol.)
The paperback special edition will be available in the fall (northern hemisphere).
Eliabeth wrote her first mini-series in second grade when the teacher told her she was not old enough to write a chapter book. Regrettably, for fear of turning into a starving artist, Eliabeth played it safe in college and is now a recent William Jewell graduate with a BA in International Business and Japanese. She now returns to what she truly loves, creating worlds for people to escape to and characters for them to fall in love with. Ermisenda began writing Harry Potter fan-fiction at the age of twelve and started developing her own writing at fourteen when she joined play sites and completed her first crime novel at fifteen. Although her favorite genres were crime and fantasy, she reads a bit of everything. Driven by the desire to evoke the kaleidoscope of emotions her favorite authors are able to, she kept writing. Growing up bilingual amongst her Spanish family in Australia, she found a love and deep appreciation for language and the power it wielded. She is now a Psychology major at the University of Newcastle. Together, they write as Ermilia.
