In a world where shape shifters are feared by humans, and murder appears to be the way to eliminate them, finding and destroying the source of the fear is all the doublesight can do.
After the Doublesight Wars, dangerous and mean-spirited shape shifters were killed off, causing other doublesight to hide their gifts, congregate into their own villages or clans, and avoid most humans.
Zimp and Zora are the twin granddaughters of the crow clan’s sage. The reticent Zimp is relieved that she has not been chosen to take her grandmother’s position, but after Zora is murdered during an attack on the clan, Zimp is forced into her obligations.
Rumors, stemming from Castle Weilk, suggest that dangerous throwbacks have been born—gryphons, harpys, dragons—and, once again the humans decide to hunt down all doublesight. Fear leads to mistrust, and mistrust to murder.
The doubesight council assembles to assess the situation and sends five doublesight to investigate the rumors, placing Zimp in charge of four men. Struggling with her own intuitive abilities, and trying to hold a stable position as leader, Zimp finds herself in the center of a changing world and must decide on her real place within it.
My Review: August 2013 ~ Review Copies ~
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
First, I would like to thank the author Terry Persun for giving me this book for an honest review. I really take pleasure in shape shifter fiction I found Doublesight to be inspiring, there were crows, lion-wolf hybrids and dragons. This world had many possibilities for growth and imagination. It’s a fantasy novel about a girl named Zimp who finds herself thrust into a leadership position she doesn't feel she's ready for. She finds that she is up to the challenge as she goes along. There is so much potential for this world of Doublesight, they are hunted by humans and have many conflicts that they need to work through and much more. Overall I enjoyed this book and hope there may be more to their story in the future.
