By- E.C. Hibbs
Genre- Young Adult Fantasy, Coming of Age
Reviewed by Bex
In Blindsighted Wanderer, we are introduced to a fascinating fantasy world. Following an array of characters, including the masculine Atego brothers and the beautiful Merrin, EC Hibbs takes us on a journey where self-discovery and self-acceptance is the key to destroy past fears and to accept the pleasures and excitement of the unknown.

Blindsighted Wanderer is a gentle, romantic fantasy, suitable for young teenagers and adults alike. It was very easy to get swept away with the dramas and journeys that the characters underwent. All of the characters that we are introduced to, perhaps with the exception of Adrian, who appears early on in the novel, are highly likeable and have so many realistic traits that it’s difficult not to become caught up in their lives and emotions. 

I was never quite sure how the drama would unfold and was certainly kept in suspense with the relationship developments between characters. This was a particularly enjoyable aspect of the novel, as things did not always pan out in a ‘traditional’ way. These twists and shifts allowed me to remain engaged in the novel.

It did take me a while to get caught up in the action after the immediate excitement of the first chapter. This did however allow for a lot of character development. It didn’t take too long for the drama to build, so much so that I had my finger poised ready to flip over to the next page.

If you are looking for a gentle romance, with strong characters living in a fantasy world, then no doubt Blindsighted Wanderer will be a hit!

The Wall has long kept Elitland Valley safe from the demons on the other side. For centuries the villagers have avoided speaking of the Wall or the creatures it protects them from.  

Upon their return from the annual Country Fayre, the older Atego brothers learn of their father’s passing. When fifteen year old Silas Atego learns the mysterious illness that took his father might have been a curse from a demon, his need for answers draws him to the one place he must not go.  The far side of the Wall.

When Silas is still missing days later, his older brother Raphael sets out on his own to bring him home.  On his journey, Raphael learns how it was his ancestor who was cursed by a demon creature from the Lake and had the Wall built to keep them out. More desperate than ever to find his brother, his search draws Raphael to the same terrifying barrier.

Along the brothers’ individual travels they face their greatest fears, make lifelong friends, and more importantly, learn the truth of what happened centuries ago.

Blindsighted Wanderer is a tale about how truth and forgiveness will set you free.  Where myths are transformed to legends that last a lifetime.  The brothers leave their home as desperate boys but return to their family as honorable men.
