This book is a heartbreaking, uplifting, and breathtaking story of family, love, treachery, magic and legend. I first read and purchased this book when it first came out, looking for a good read, and this book satisfied that need- to the tune of being read at least twice a year. It never fails to be a good read, break my heart, or leave me breathless. Clement-Davies certainly did his research on the history, legends and lore of ancient Romania, and he overdid himself on his research of the familial ties of wolf packs- the characters are fantastically feral and untamed, but their characterizations, relationships, fears, secrets and dreams make them resonate with the reader. The plot moves smoothly, making it an easy read- it's harder to put it down! It sucks you in and when you force yourself to pull out, it leaves you winded. Despite having a hold on someone my age (25), the writing is clean and easy to understand for younger audiences, and has a message of love, hope and a connection that ties the world together. This story made me cry the first time I read it, and it still makes me tear up every time. This book is amazing and everyone should have a copy on their shelf- I do, and it's a lovingly worn, dog eared copy that has seen much reading on rainy nights and sunny days.

There may be many books about wolves out there, but none of them are quite like the Sight. This book gives a very detailed view into religion, death and the effects of humans on enviornment, but still somehow manages to remain a rather light read. I would reccomend this book to anyone of any age who wants to get a different view on life or just wants a great read.

The Sight is truely David Clemente-Davies masterpiece. It is an intricate tale of love, death, family, lore, and the ways of nature. The detail is outstanding and paints a perfect picture in the reader's mind. Aside from that,the story, although a little complicated, is a mixture of real fears, and fears of the fantastic variaty (such as curses, and the sight itself.) I would recomend this book to those who enjoy a good read, but also have the time to read (as this is a thick book). It is probably best to be read by tweens to young adults. I would also recomend this to readers of the fantasy genre. It is overall better than it's sequel, Fell, and has a better story line than books such as twilight. Even though this is a fantasy, it is still filled with realistic situations in the wild. It is a very unique style of fantasy, jam packed with the real facts, including pack life, the humans at the time, and Romania overall. It is apparent that Clemente-Davies did his research and then some. This is by far one of his greatest pieces of work. Wonderfully done David Clemente-Davies.

When I first started reading The Sight, I wasn't quite sure about it, but soon enough, I was completely hooked and wrapped up in the story. It is a great book with wonderful insight into the world of wolves.

This book is part of a ongoing series and is very fascinating! It is a fabulous book and is full of adventure and action. It goes into old wolf lore and is fun to read.

I was only 10 and was probably a little young to read this but i hava higher reading level for someone my age so here was my insight on this book: AWESOME!!!!! TOP 10 FAVS for sure! This book is emotionally gripping and if u liked this one you need to read FELL, the next book. I read both and felt that the number one thing to get out of these books is complete self-satisfaction because wow this author has the talent of being able to entertain bored teens and young adults. Thank u for writing this mr.david. i love it!!!!! Now that im older i still wanna read it!!!!

The Sight was a book that kept me reading for more. It brought tears to my eyes at points yet it touched my heart. Important lessons in life can be learned throughout many of the characters. Good for a school project or just as a fun read.

At first when I bought The Sight, I just had it lyng around. I had read the synopsis and I thought it was a "childish fantasy novel." HUMPH!!! CHILDISH FANTASY NOVEL MY GUTS! It was an amazing book. Perplexing, Thrilling, and all that other good stuff. It had powerful characters, astonishing settings, great dialogues, a powerful plot, and more, MORE, MORE!!!! Anyway, I haven't read Fire Bringer or Fell yet, but I really am looking forward to! I highly recommend this book to people that love Wolves, strong Fantasy novels, and those that don't.

Well I read this book when i was 8th grade which was like 2 months ago. Back then people would only read books that gave you A.R. point. This was because of the Accelerated Reading program our school has. Although i just had enough points to pass i still read books off the list. For example this was one of those great books i read during the year. People would ask me why i still read and i told them that i had a what you could say a passion for it. Another thing is after break 'which is ten minutes' we have have something called d.e.a.r. 'drop everything and read' We would go to our third period class and just read for 30 minutes. So i would always be tortured after d.e.a.r. since the wait of after school to read. I would never look at the clock in fear that it would hit the thirty minute mark. I look forward to reading the sequel Fell.

The Sight was one of the best books i ever read and is now definately my favorite series. I got this book at Barnes and Nobles because I love animals, fantasies, and mysteries. This book seemed perfect for me and it was ' especially since wolves are my favorite animals '. This book is the best and if you ask me if you haven't read it yet then you have no idea what you're missing:'':

Like I said this isn't what I look for in a book and I was very disappointed. I was so excited to read this book because its the kind of book IK love, animal adventure/fantasy, but it turned out to be a let down. I believe there are two 'alities' in the world: reality and what I call bookality. Now bookality shares some of the things that reality has death, despair, and other negative real life things but there is a big difference between the two. Most of the time reality sucks and is not like what you see in movies, bookality is more like movies. There is conflict and sadness through the main part but when it is all said and done you are left with a happy uplifting ending. The Sight was much different. The Sight was too much like reality. Almost all the characters died, which I don't mind throughout the book, but to have the book end like that is not what I like. The ending was much too depressing and I did not like that at all. Now the author was very descriptive, used brilliant language, and kept the story going. I was always very hooked on the story and couldn't put it down. That's why I gave it two stars instead of one. If you like animal fantasies/adventure novels and don't mind depressing endings it is a very good book and you would like it. If you are like me and can't stand terribly sad endings stay away!

I loved it! It had a great ending and it was not expected. I hope he writes a sequal. Larka was a wonderful wolf in the book. Possibly my favorite story. It has a great hidden message also!

The Sight by David Clement-Davies is a book about wolves told through the point of view of wolves. This book was one of the most original works I¿ve ever read. The wolves seemed like wild beasts, yet strangely human-like, especially strange because some of the wolves have magical powers.

A unique book with a theme not usualy portrayed. Wolves in the Transylvanian forests in the time of Vladmire the Impaler, the great dracula himself. It is a story of brotherhood compainionship and the bonds of a family, and of course giant wolf fights and magic wolves.
DJLunchlady91404 on LibraryThing 6 days ago
I was a little apprehensive about reading the sight due to the fact that it wasn¿t my typical type of reading material but I kept my mind open when I began reading it. The first half of the book seemed to drag on a little but as I read I became so seduced by the storyline and after the first 100 pages I was no longer able to put the book down. The emotions that I felt while reading The Sight will stick with me for a long time. I will defiantly recommend this book to anyone who asks.
platsdevil on LibraryThing 6 days ago
This is my absolute favorite book. As you follow these characters, you can't help but notice who they really are. Larka is tangled in a web of mistery and misery and she loses everthing she loves until finally she must face her destiny. You couln't find a closer family and I think anyone with any sense could see how amazing this tale is. The whole time I asked myself, what is the bigger picture of this story, and I figured it out. Now it's your turn.

A beautiful work of fiction. Not only is the story overall complex and richly detailed, but so are the characters, both large and small. Every character no matter how small had a part to play. The Sight is not an easy read. The plot has may rich nuances, complicated interwoven back-stories, and many twists and turns. Clement-Davies even creates new words for the wolves to use and define their world rather then using human ones. The Sight is a deeply moving story in which the reader can easily find themselves concerned for all the characters both large and small. Even the main a villain, Morgra, found my deep hearted sympathy. All the characters have a reason to be doing what their doing. You understand their motives and the scars that mark their past.

A wolf pack is a very good thing to be in. This wolf pack has just had four pups but 2 oh them died.

If you like wolves or magic I wholeheartily recommend this. Its beautifully written and the writer really knows how to paint a scene and write the charcters. Its a mystic adventure, really.
