Truthsight by Miriam Greystone
Miriam Greystone weaves an enchanting tale of ancient supernatural creatures. The characters and their stories are so real it’s as if you are there beside them. I was intrigued from the moment I started the book and remained enthralled until the very end. I couldn’t put the book down, needing to know what would happen next. I loved the fact that she used mythical creatures such as centaurs, pixies and gnomes instead of the usual vampires and werewolves. She even introduced a creature from Slavic folklore which really impressed me. Her research on all the creatures was spot on which added depth to not only the characters but the story as well. I loved the book.
Amy is a doctor who turned her barn into a night clinic for all the creatures that live in the forest. Her patients includes pixies, gnomes, trolls, harpies and even centaurs. Amy is a Mage and healer. She has the power of truthsight which allows her to see the real you. The part which you hide away from the world, your true self. She has been on the run for years with mages hunting her. When she taps into her power to save the foal of a centaur, she knows they will find her.
After being captured, waiting to be executed, a creature rescues her. Hearing about her abilities to heal, he knows she’s his only hope of saving his father. Things don’t go according to plan and both their lives end up in danger. All creatures must stand together to fight a common enemy and save not only Amy but themselves as well.
