TRUTHSIGHT

Doctor Amy spends her nights running a secret clinic for supernatural creatures. When she is forced to use her magic to save the lives of a centaur infant and its mother, she vows never to regret her decision, no matter the consequences. Not even when the Mages capture her, beat her, and condemn her to die.

Before the sentence can be carried out, Amy is abducted by a mysterious being named Rowan, who demands she use her healing abilities to save his father. But when Amy fails to save the ailing man, her actions unintentionally force Rowan into an exile that will soon turn into a death sentence.

Now Rowan and Amy must join forces with the creatures who were once her patients and fight to uncover the one secret that may be powerful enough to save them all.




My Impressions:    

Truthsight takes you on a magical journey filled with mythical creatures that was well written, imaginative and a fast paced page turner into the world of fantasy. I have to say I adored Amy, AKA Asa the mage. She is such a likeable character that has a phenomenal story. She is a doctor that turns her barn into a clinic for all the animals of the forest. She is also a mage and healer who has the gift of truthsight that allows her to see the real you. If that is not enough she is also being hunted by other mages. Eventually, her desire to save others is what gets her captured and sentenced to execution. I adore this story, it breathes real life and real circumstances with the struggle between your heart and your mind, your safety versus helping others and real love. It has great depth that you do not see very often in fantasy with a strong female. I cannot wait to see if this becomes a series.
