Years ago, a bond was forged when a little boy, plagued by dreams and visions he could not explain, became the Witch’s new apprentice healer.

Gerry, a rugged and headstrong hunter, is brought to the Witch for healing, and Ghost is forced to reveal the mark beneath his snowy hair that sets him apart from other men.

But Gerry does not reject Ghost as an

I have to admit, this story took me a little while to get into.

Their culture was largely based on Alphas (no, not the growly, shifty kind) buying or finding younger "dependents", who would then act as their apprentices, pseudo-children, bed warmers, and/or simply servants.

Then I read how Gerry's Alpha was named "Mother". And he was a *dude*. Bring on the head scratching, right?

There were also witches, hunters, rangers, renegades and all sorts of oddly-named game animals, so yeah, catching up definitely took me a hot"".",(no,

This short story is more of an introduction to a world and to Ghost and Gerry than it is a story in its own regard. It sets up the post-apocalyptic setting, introduces the idea of Witches, who are feared and powerful female healers who have access to the lost technology, and Rangers, who are craven men who go through the ruins of fallen cities to find lost technology and either sell it to the Witches or use it themselves. It’s a world where a strong individual ca

This was an interesting story that I would have liked to know more about particularly in terms of the religious and magic systems, as these appear to be at the core of the plot. The world building is realistic and contextualises what is happening. It is a richly developed environment with good attention to detail. It seems to be post-apocalyptic with a return to hunter-gather type communities alongside a magic system based on witches. There is some description of the relationship between the soc ...more

Recieved from Netgalley. Short but sweet. The first male witch in an age and a hunter looking for a future. I liked how much plot there was considering the length of the story. Conn was a bit of a pain, Gerry didn’t really leave an impact but Ghost was sweet.

How I love nice surprises like that one. I haven't read anything else by the author, but the blurb looked interesting, so picked it up.
Before discussing anything, I should say it's a short story. I am still arguing with myself if it's better that it's short, or the story is actually much bigger.
One thing I know for sure is the characters are much bigger. I wanted to see more of them. Especially Ghost and Gerry.
And again- if it was a full length novel, I'm sure I would've

2.5 stars - Would've liked a more fleshed out story so we could get to know Ghost and Gerry better, but found it an interesting start to this series. Will check out the next book to see where the story leads.
Lisa The Novel Approach
There is soooo much with going on within this story within a limited number of words.

Though the world building was all very interesting and creative, with what appears to be both religious and magical elements, it was also a lot to take in, in a very short amount of time. Renegades, rangers, witches, hunters, godsmen and a set of gods make up the different factions of people out there. Some are allies, some give each other a wide berth, and I honestly was confused quite a bit about h

Notes From 'Round the Bend
This one was…hard to pin down. The romance was almost too simple and the thing as a whole read more like an outline than a fully-fleshed-out story, but I found that I enjoyed the bare-bones nature of it. Rather than be frustrated by the lack of detailed background, I was intrigued, and I’d like to see more stories take place in this world of ruined cities, relics, witches, and rangers.

There were a limited number of characters—only six—and though none of them were given a ton of devel

Six Word Summary: Surprisingly sweet post-apocalyptic fantasy love story.

My Thoughts: I straight up loved this little book. Initially I sat down to read one or two chapters but I ended up reading it all in one sitting. I devoured the book, loved the characters, and want more!

To me Witch's Sight reads as a fantasy novella but really the world is set in what feels like a post-apocalyptic, paranormal space. The characters and world surrounding them felt/>My

Somewhere between 3.25 and 4 stars lives this novella. Sometimes short stories feel perfect in their length, self-contained little vignettes that tell you everything you need to know -- even if it's not much. This was not that story.

However, the relationships rang true. A deeper, lengthier exploration of them would have been nice, but what there was was good. Mother, Conn, and Gerry's relationships got a lot of air time and deserved it. (Conn and Mother both need good slappings for different re

This was a fairly good read. What I wanted was more. More of how we got here, was the a major war, disease or even an alien attack :). I liked the MC’s but they seemed disjointed. They go from meeting to Gerry wanting him forever in the span of one night. I enjoy insta-love in shifter books because of the whole mate, mine mentality. I’m just not real sure of their feelings as you don’t get anything really in-depth between the two. Also ghost is a witch, why didn’t he get away from the thug that ...more

I received a copy of Ghost’s Sight by Morwen Navarre via IndiGo Marketing & Design in exchange for an honest review. Ghost’s Sight is an interesting story about a post-apocalyptic world where witches have arisen to fill the role of healers. I liked the main character Ghost, a sweet shy person who tries to ignore people’s responses to his unusual looks. When he meets Gerry who accepts him completely, of course they are meant to be together. I was fascinated by the worldbuilding in the book an ...more

Interesting world building in a post apocalyptic setting where mankind has been reduced to scavengers and starting again, as hunter/gathers and where witches are healers. Ghost is a sweet and very innocent character, a rare male witch with the sight. I really liked the gentle relationship between Ghost and Gerry, even though it was almost instalove, but in this world alpha leaders take on dependants, who aren't necessarily lovers, but who they become responsible for.

A quick and enjoy

Wonderful from the first paragraph

Such an incredible story set in a time after civilization collapsed and had to ride again. New gods are established to follow so that survivors don't make the same mistakes that caused the fall. Witches are used for healing magic and Ghost has been chosen by the God Seemed to be a witches apprentice. When Gerry is injured on a hunt and Ghost helps the witch heal him the attraction is instant. Gerry just had to track Ghost down and get him back from the rogue ran

I really enjoyed this post apocalyptic style book. The conventions of familial parts was interesting. It was somewhat confusing at first, with Mother being a man and the fact that witches were a desired species in a village.

The story was short and sweet and seemed like a great prequel to another in the series. This book was about the relationships of characters and their nature. I loved the writing and the two main characters, Gerry and Ghost. Very well done.
LOLA
A story that is well written. A little bit short. The story of Ghost and Gerry could have been so much more. The world building is good, but again just short. The whole book reads like a prequel. Good but not nearly enough. Ghost is a witch apprentice and falls for a patient Gerry. There is minor troubles. Some small sex scenes. Some romance.
Pretty good short story.

It was good, but too short. The ending suffered because it was too abrupt, maybe with an extra 20, 30 pages or so, it would have been a bit less rushed.
But the world-building was clear and intricate, really rich and fun to read. The characters were equally well-crafted. All in all, it was good.

I am not quite sure what to make of this one. The premise was good, but there was a distinct lack of world building which meant I spent a lot of the time feeling a bit confused as to how things in this fantasy world worked.

On the one had you've got Ghost, a foundling who is taken in by The Witch, and who has the gift of "sight". He is marked as a witch himself and lives alongside The Witch (who is an old wo

This is a series and should be read in order, no cliffhanger.

Blurb's accurate, book's better. This author has a very calm but powerful writing style and I love the character development. I read the second one right after this and it made me appreciate this book more.

I've been writing since I could first hold a pencil, and by all accounts I didn't limit myself to paper. Walls, tablecloths and the occasional sibling were all fair game, and it shouldn't be surprising to learn that markers were banned in my home with all due haste. Although I now content myself with inconveniencing electrons, the desire to bring the stories in my mind to life hasn't waned.

“Ghost shook his head as he sat on the very edge of the bed, poised to take flight if need be. The spiral under his hair felt warm, almost painful, but he resisted the urge to rub it. It never helped when he did, and he was not sure what Gerry would do if the man saw it. The Witch had a symbol she called a triskele, the ink a vivid scarlet still, but no male that had ever come for healing bore a mark like hers, or like his. He had never found the words to ask the Witch about it, about why he was marked like a witch.” 0 likes
“Gerry reached up to smooth a bit of that snowy mane. The strands slipped through his fingers like silk to reveal a witch's mark, a spiral of olive-green stones that seemed to be a part of Ghost’s very forehead, shining against the translucent skin. Gerry had seen such marks before, peculiar glyphs burned into a witch's skin in vibrant jewel-tone inks to offer protection or enhance their power, or so the witches claimed. This was the first time he had seen actual jewels used, though. He thought it was beautiful, exotic like all of Ghost, with that white hair and those ice blue eyes. Gerry returned to admiring the peaceful face resting on his shoulder.” 0 likes
