Danger is closing in. The stars are calling. And young Jacob Manford is restless. He's tried settling into life as a Seer, but he hasn't forgotten the ghostly boy who told him about a new colony—a colony for those who were once blind but can now see. A place for

Other space was the third book to the true sight series, and I would give the book a 5 out of 5 rating. I gave the book this rating because as soon as on problem was fixed another problem occurred and you never knew who to trust in the book because they were always turning on each other. I also liked how the author pulled you in because you would think that the main character Jacob was stranded and left alone but then someone would show up and help him. I would recommend this book to 5 grade and ...more

I picked up the first book in these series at the library for 25¢. It looked really weird, but I gave it a try. It turns out that this was a really good sci-fi series, and the awesome writing of David Stahler Jr. carried me all the way to the last book!

And this is where the Truesight trilogy gets waaaay too sci-fi. I mean, it already is a sci-fi book, but now it involves too much Star Wars-ish stuff. It's okay. I mean, I didn't hate it. I just didn't like the shift to the sci-fi extreme. 3/5

Both the best and the last book of the Truesight Trilogy, Otherspace really wraps up everything to do with the series. While some may dislike for reasons like how it's set more in space than the other books, or how it has the main character being the only character from the previous books to appear again, I think the direction that Mister Stahler took with this series in its final installment was well-decided. I've read it 3 times already and I can't get enough of it.

A great ending to a wonderful trilogy. Lots of engaging characters and Jacob finds the place and people he has been drawn to in his visions after a long and arduous journey. Although this isn't the end of Jacob's adventures as he brings his people to a new safe world. He finally discovers where he belongs and what he needs to do. And although it's not spelled out, just Jacob's vision of himself returning to Xander and Delaney as a man, you know Jacob will see the people he's grown to love again. ...more

OTHERSPACE is the third and final title in the trilogy. You don't have to read the two books before it to understand this one, but it may help reduce any confusion if you check out TRUESIGHT and THE SEER first.

In this story, Jacob travels across the galaxy to find the boy in his dreams. Throughout this book he learns more about his talents and who he is as a person.

With unending twists and turns, OTHERSPACE is a highly enjoyable book.

I enjoyed the Truesight trilogy but I think the ending was a little off. The whole journey that Jacob went through to find out who he is and what he can do was very thrilling and interesting but I feel like I was left with so many unanswered questions: What happened on the new planet?What about Delaney and Xander? How does Jacob do with his new powers? ETC. Other than that I was really pleased with the series, it brought a lot of moral and ethical questions to the forefront and really made me th ...more

I found this title to be a quick enjoyable read, good for sort of middle grade readers, but enough of interest to discuss as a piece of dystopian literature at a higher level. Examining a puritanical group who chooses to produce blind children, the book follows out the experiment in a realistic way. The book is a little short to investigate both the pluses and minus of such a utopian commune, so it seems a little bit biased against the community, focusing on the main character

Very entertaining to the end. Usually I feel a let down with the ending of a trilogy, but I thought this series ended well, and it kept its suspense to the very end which I appreciated. This one of the 3 was definitely the most in the realm of science fiction, but I didn't mind (it's not usually my favorite genre). It was a great series.

Book 1 was definitely my favorite of this trilogy. Glad I read them for the whole story, though. Jacob finally discovers his talent and the Seers will be safe from persecution. Star travel through the wormholes was an interesting side to this story! Very creative s.f.

It got too much into sci-fi for me. I lost some of the enthusiasm for the storyline. I did not finish the title. I plan to come back to this title later.
