Book Description

June 7 2002

It is an icy night in the country that long ago was known as Transylvania. The wintry ground crackles as a hunter’s paw breaks the hard earth. The wolf pauses, her breath like smoke in the cold air, then a howl pierces the night. But it is her eyes, not her howl, that speak of danger.

Beware of the Sight.

In the shadow of the Carpathian mountains, a pack of wolves seeks shelter from the vicious winter. A legend clings to them - a story of man and wolf, of power and death. The Sight has come into their world. They will never be the same again....

‘A strong, uncompromising story with truths as its core that echo our own lives....’ Scotsman

Product Description

From Amazon

In an epic tale of good and evil, legend and history, and the blessing and curse of an extraordinary gift of the Sight (an ability to see through others' minds and into the future), David Clement-Davies obliges the many fans of Fire Bringer with a new fantasy novel. The Sight features a Transylvanian wolf clan faced with the terrifying changes brought about by Morgra, a bitter she-wolf determined to fulfill an ancient legend in order to have supreme power over all Vargs (wolves). Young Larka, a white wolf pup born with the Sight, embarks with her brother Fell and the rest of her family on an extraordinary quest for truth and salvation, with shocking consequences that even the most astute reader may not foresee. Clement-Davies's multilayered and elaborate plot will keep young readers riveted for hours on end, drawing on Christianity, fairy tales, and mythology in a colossal allegory and cautionary tale for its human audience. (Ages 12 and older) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From Publishers Weekly

As in his Fire Bringer, Clement-Davies's new fantasy novel features talking animals (Vargs, or wolves, instead of deer), a militant pack with a power-hungry leader, a prophecy involving a newborn that proves gifted (a white wolf who has the Sight, which can be used to see the future, heal and even control others) and the author creates imaginative mythologies (here drawing on everything from Christianity to Little Red Riding Hood). Also, both prophecies speak of a marked one (this time it turns out to be a stolen human child) and the revelation of a secret. But readers may find the creative plotting here even more compelling than in the author's first novel and the cryptic prophecy's meaning will keep them guessing. Larka, a white wolf, and her family are hunted, initially by Morgra, who strives to become the powerful Man Varg (also foretold in the prophecy); a rebel pack also hunts them (Slavka, its leader, seeks to destroy all that claim to have the Sight). After Larka loses members of her pack, she embarks on a solo journey and finds teachers who help her master the Sight, using it to heal the "human cub" and to prepare to face Morgra. Despite sophisticated language and some complex concepts, such as the origins of evil, the author's clever plot twists (such as which wolf eventually claims to be Wolfbane) make the thick novel well worth the commitment. Strong female characters also provide a refreshing change to the often male-dominated science-fiction/fantasy field. Ages 12-up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Follow Along and you will understand... June 30 2004
By Jessica
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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...

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! April 16 2004
By A Customer
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars All in all, a very great book Nov. 23 2003
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars David Clement-Davies brings wolves to life Oct. 7 2007
By Jac
Format:Paperback
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVED IT July 22 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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.
