Blindsighted Wanderer Blog Tour

E. C. Hibbs has lived all her life in Cheshire, north-west England. A lover of stories from an early age, she wrote her first 'book' when she was five, and throughout school was a frequent visitor to the younger classes to read her tales to the children.
Living so near the coast, she loves anything to do with the sea. She studied Animal Behaviour at university and longs to work with marine mammals in the future. As well as nature and animals, she also has a soft spot for history, and loves paying visits to castles, cathedrals and museums.
There are many things she could be without, but writing isn't one of them. She carries a pen everywhere, in case an idea appears, and takes pride in still seeing the world as brimming with magic. Besides writing, she reads obsessively, her favourite genres being the classics and all kinds of fantasy. She also enjoys Disney and horror films, practising Shotokan karate, drawing, archery, and playing with her very cheeky kitten.

The Wall has long kept Elitland Valley safe from the demons on the other side. For centuries the villagers have avoided speaking of the Wall or the creatures it protects them from.

Upon their return from the annual Country Fayre, the older Atego brothers learn of their father’s passing. When fifteen year old Silas Atego learns the mysterious illness that took his father might have been a curse from a demon, his need for answers draws him to the one place he must not go. The far side of the Wall.

When Silas is still missing days later, his older brother Raphael sets out on his own to bring him home. On his journey, Raphael learns how it was his ancestor who was cursed by a demon creature from the Lake and had the Wall built to keep them out. More desperate than ever to find his brother, his search draws Raphael to the same terrifying barrier.

Along the brothers’ individual travels they face their greatest fears, make lifelong friends, and more importantly, learn the truth of what happened centuries ago.

Blindsighted Wanderer is a tale about how truth and forgiveness will set you free. Where myths are transformed to legends that last a lifetime. The brothers leave their home as desperate boys but return to their family as honorable men.

Blindsighted Wanderer is a young adult fantasy, coming of age story appropriate for readers 12 +.

My Review:
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I was so wrapped up in it that I forgot about everything going on around me until I was done reading.

 I could not put this book down. The world that E.C. has created is so fresh and new that it hooked me from page one.  With all the twists and turns I felt like I was in the book with the characters going through everything with them. It was so easy to get swept away in the plot and connect with the characters. The brothers are my favorite characters and enjoyed reading the journey they both go on.

This book is defiantly on my must read list again. 5/5 Bloody Fangs  

Buy Links:

This or That:
Night or Day?
I’m a night owl. Evening is my favourite time of the day and I can easily stay up all night reading or writing.

 Theater or Rent?
I prefer seeing movies on the big screen. I don’t go that often, but I love the experience.

 Fall or Summer?

Summer, without question. Everything is so colourful and it means I can spend loads of time outside. Autumn is my least favourite season.

 Music or Reading?

Tough one! But I’d probably have to say reading; I can’t go for very long without a book!

 Pet Dragon or Pet Gargoyle?
Definitely a dragon! I love dragons to pieces! I always wanted a pet one when I was little!

 Flip flops or Tennis shoes?

Tennis shoes, just because they’re more durable. I tend to pick shoes that will last me for a long time. Plus I love climbing trees and walking through woods, so flip flops aren’t best for that!

 Coffee or Tea?

I actually don’t like either of them! I’m not really a fan of hot drinks. But I like the smell of coffee and coffee chocolates, so I’ll pick that.
I wanna say Thank you to E.C. Hibbs for letting me review her book and Thank You to TTC and B2B for letting me participate in the blog tour. Don't forget to enter the giveaway.
