Review of Insight:Beholders Book One by Terron James

Insight Insight by Terron James
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Genre: YA Fantasy
Publisher: Nypa Distributing(2011)
ISBN:978-0-578-08858-7

Book Description:

Rumors are surging through Appernysia that a Beholder has been born, the first wielder of True Sight in over a millennium.

Seventeen-year-old Lon Marcs discovers he has been blessed—or cursed—with this gift. He cannot control the power of True Sight and feels it killing him with each passing day. He realizes that the only people who might possess the knowledge to save his life are the sworn enemies of his king. To obtain their help, Lon would have to journey into exile, leaving behind his village, family, and beloved Kaylen.

Although this is the hardest decision Lon has ever made, it is only the first of many that will test his strength and challenge his interpretation of right and wrong.



My Review:
Insight is the first book in the Beholders fantasy series. Terron creates a world set in a medieval time. The World of Appernysia is vividly introduced as the reader gets to know main character, Lon. Though there is a slow start, the adventure soon takes over and you have to keep reading. There are many exciting moments, as Lon discovers that he is the long awaited Beholder that people have been waiting a millennium to be born. Lon fights against what is right and wrong.The lines will become blurred as to the decisions he makes. It was thrilling to see Lon's journey as he became a Rayder. The Rayders reminded me a lot of the French group of Musketeers, because of their loyalty to each other and their cause.

Lon's twin sister, Mellai, is also vital to the heart of the story. I enjoyed seeing the twins, grow and mature along the way as they are faced with hardships of life. The romance between Lon and Kaylen is told realistically, but heartbreaking at the same time.

Insight has something for all readers, adventure, romance, fantasy elements,and an exciting twist at the end of the book. You are left wanting to read the second book immediately, even though it is not ready to read yet; soon I hope!
