Good easy read. Well crafted with a good hook. It follows the formula of this genre very well. The protagonist was well crafted and fleshed out. The story left a lot of little plot lines to be followed in the next edition.
I enjoyed this book , I thought it worth my effort to read and look forward to the next edition.

If you are looking for the next great American novel than this isn’t it.
Don’t wast your time. If you enjoy a story that’s well told and able to get above the stigma fantas

I greatly enjoyed Eyes of the Blind. I tried to read it in one night, but I had to go to work. So it took a little longer.

I had recently read two books back to back and was disappointed to find that although they were written a few years apart, they had identical plots. Both were predictable and although good, disappointing.

Not so with Eyes of the Blind. I was never quite certain of where the story was going to go and just enjoyed the ride. You will, too.

Shelves: fantasy
YA, Middle-school level fantasy story. Fifteen-year-old country boy who never before held a weapon expertly kills bad things with dagger and sword!

The bad things might be bandits, ogres, goblins, wizards, etc. Borrowed worldbuilding.

The writing is decent and the editing is good, although the dialog is stilted, as though written by an ESL person.

Fantastic Adventure

This story of a young man who promises to help as a woodsman guide for some priests after they save his dog’s life was an interesting book. I will be continuing with this series.

Coming of Age

A very tight coming of age story that foreshadows at being an origin story of a medieval superhero...the Paladin.

Cover: 3/5
Narration: n/a
Favorite Line: “The wise are always mindful when dealing with the mindless.”

Pleasant surprise

Short but very enjoyable. Reminded me of Salvatore but more subtle with the Tolkienesque world. Ill dig into the next installment immediately.

Best Quest Novel Since The Hobbit

Tolkien would be very proud of D. A. Godwin's, "Eyes of the Blind". As a quest novel, it ranks along with "Lord of the Rings" in a shorter format.

Great book for someone just getting into fantasy reading. The story is straight forward with just enough characters to flesh out the store. Looking forward to reading book two.
