Distance Is Now a Thing of the Past. That's what investigator Michaels is learning as he uncovers a series of brutal murders committed by what the media is calling the God's Breath Killer-a mysterious entity that leaves no clues, no logical explanation, and no witnesses.Until a young woman crosses paths with this killer. Meet Caitlyn Grey: twenty-six, agoraphobic, and blind. She travels the world without leaving home. Caitlyn can blink-sending her mind across earth. It's a skill she's kept hidden, one she shares with this killer. To the police, it's the impossible: How could a blind woman see a crime that didn't leave prints? But to Michaels it's just the break his investigation needs. He's uncovered a pattern among the dead-a connection to a Cold War experiment that weaponized the mind.Now, Caitlyn and Michaels must team up to track down an evil formed by cruel science-an adversary that can bend perception itself. Both an unrelenting thriller and a tale of sci-fi-horror, Blind Site is a novel of identity and vengeance, a twisted hunt into fractured consciousness itself.… (lisätietoja)

This techno-thriller had me on the edge of my seat for most of the story. It was action packed and had an interesting storyline that captured me for the duration of the book. It was well written and had compelling characters. A few warnings, it is graphically violent so that may turn some readers off and some of the jargon is difficult to understand. Neither of these things impacted my enjoyment of the story but they are worth noting. I found this book to be very entertaining and would definitely check out more by this author in the future. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review through the early reviewers program. ( )

I enjoyed this book, it was a little confusing at first because the prologue didn't seem to match with the first few chapters. I was able to see how it went together and it ended up being a good read. I found myself invested in the characters and what was happening to them. I started reading it in the airport and didn't want to put it down! I'd recommend for anyone who enjoys thrillers and mystery/sci-fi type books. ( )

Totally Engrossing! After reading the first few chapters I was afraid I wouldn't be able to follow the book because they seemed to be disconnected. They set the scene, and it didn't take long to see the connections and get pulled into a story of possibilities that seem impossible. Captivating themes and descriptions created a running movie in my brain. I mulled over the book for days after finishing it - a sure sign for me of a good book .

What is truly the difference between justice and vengeance? This is the question posed in Andrew Van Wey's Blindsite. In the late '80s/early '90s, a government-led program (read here as testing/torture chamber) pushed a dozen subjects to their limits to see what the human mind is capable of doing. Now, 30 years later, an invisible force is tracking down all those involved one by one and tearing them apart. When agents Michaels and Carruthers hit a dead end, they get a cryptic call from a woman claiming she witnessed one of these gruesome maulings. They surmise it can't be possible because she's blind. But when the impossible is already happening right before their eyes, how can they deny any chance they have to stop it?

One thing readers will thoroughly enjoy is how the storyline plays out. They'll think for a long time that they know what's going on. Then they'll see how much of the novel they still have left and have an "Oh no, wait, what's going to happen now?" moment. The way the twists and revelations unfold ensure readers will keep guessing and then keep being surprised. The pacing keeps you on your toes for the entire novel.

Another element I think readers will enjoy is that each character has a vital role, and the readers get to witness them all simultaneously. Their seemingly insignificant discoveries, when combined, paint a picture of the shocking truth behind it all. Readers will be able to infer some of the answers before the investigators do, so they'll get that feeling of dread we all love from the best horror films/novels.

The biggest drawback to the novel is some of the lexicon used. Van Wey poured a lot of time and effort into using the proper terminology for the science and the evidence for the murders. While this does a great job of painting a detailed picture, a casual reader may not understand many of the terms used. If this is your first foray into thriller/horror, you may find yourself googling several definitions.

Now with the rating, I had some difficulty. I would say it was a solid four out of five for the first 80%. But that last 20% is where all the small pieces throughout the novel came together to give it an intense, heart-racing, rage-inducing ending. So I have to give it 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Lastly, Blindsite is not a book for the faint of heart. As mentioned above, the violence contained within is brutal and very detailed. But if that doesn't bother you, and you enjoy horror/thriller novels amplified by science fiction, this will be a perfect read for you.

I received an advanced copy of this novel for free and am leaving this review voluntarily. ( )

The scientific parts were a bit confusing at times but the plot was exciting and I’d recommend it to anyone who enjoys thrillers. ( )
