I read The Sight for advanced literature. In the first part of the book, i was very confused. THen near the middle and end I started to understand. This book makes total sense at the end. Do not stop in the beginning if you think it is boring...it gets so much better! This story tell about the lifestyle of wolves in the setting of transylvania. Clement-Davies shows you the passion of the wolf in many ways and you learn to understand their ways of life. Excellent story...I highly recommend it...

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Larka is a young wolf born with a strange power called The Sight. Only one other wolf has it, and she's evil. Morgra, the evil wolf, has a sinister plan for all of the wolves's lands. There is also a prophecy, and Larka fits the description perfectly well.
The wolf pack Larka is born into is on the run from Morgra, who has a secret known by one other in the pack. As they slowly realize they are the family that the prophecy talks about, they face the elements, and slowly die off.
This book is sad because a lot of the wolves die, and I like wolves. However, birds play a significant role, so if you like them, read this book. I read this book before FireBringer, so I didn't really compare the two. Although there are a lot of similarities, each one stands by itself. The Sight is not nearly as good as FireBringer, but it is a lot better than most new fiction.
Read more about Larka and her family as they go in a spiral of danger, adventure, deciet, evil, and pure courage!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I've reviewed this book once before, but I've read it again and after reading between the lines a little, I've made up my again.
This book follows a white wolf posessed of a power that is simply named the Sight. It allows her to see into the past, present, future, and allows her to travel into the minds of birds. Her name is Larka and she heralds a legend made of her and for her. She must fulfill the ancient prophecy that is made and to do so, she must sacrifice herself for the greater good of all animal and mankind.
This book had a lot of strong points, though it did have so low points too. I noticed that verb "growled" in almost every time a wolf spoke. I found it redundent and tiring, and it took a little away from effect. You never realize how badly a word can hinder a book until you read this one. "Growled," "screeched," and "cried" are the preodminant words. Sometimes a simple "said" would do wonders.
Another low point was the final, fatal vision at the end. It was an extreme disappointment. I anticipated something wonderous and new and introspective, but I was disappointed sorely.
However, the rest of the book makes up for the lacks. It tells of human greed, and power, and love, only it used a misunderstood creatures. It tells of humans, of Christianity, and faith, and how if we lose faith, we are lost.
All in all, I loved this book. I loved it better than "Firebringer." In my opinion, "Firebringer" was too lengthy and the author's skipping of years burdened my sense of reality. I loved "Firebringer" as well but in my humble, fifteen year old opinion, it is nowhere as good as "The Sight."
Go David Clement-Davies.

If you live wolves, a dash of fantasy and a good story you'll like this book.
I read it as a young adult and bought this copy for my boyfriend to read.

I am a huge fan of David Clement-Davies. Larka, a young wolf pup embarks on a journey of truth and justice as they run away from Morgra, a wolf posessed by the Vision. A prophecy will be known and danger will rise as they travel across Transylvania. A must for all readers, though it is best to read Fire Bringer first. Clement-Davies' best so far and it is a real masterpiece with a shocking ending. Just loved it!

This has got to be one of the best books i've ever read. I read this book before the one I am reading now- Fire Bringer, and I can see how reading Fire Bringer first will help you understand The Sight better. The Sight is basically a mythological novel with talking wolves and a Prophecy the basically the whole book revolves around. The book has surprising twists, especially towards the end. Yes, I agree that the beginning is quite boring but the middle and ending is wonderful. I didnt have second thoughts of buying it.
