Truesight (Truesight Trilogy), by David Stahler Jr.
On a distant frontier world where genetic engineering has taken a startling turn is a community called Harmony. Like everyone who lives there, Jacob is blind...
Everyone in Jacob's colony is born blind. It has always been this way. They embrace the philosophy of Truesight: Blindness brings unity, purity, and freedom. It is an exceptional community. Everyone is happy.
As Jacob nears his thirteenth birthday, he anxiously anticipates his new role as an adult and all the changes that will bring. But as the day approaches, a far greater change threatens Jacob's future. It all starts with a searing pain in his eyes ...
This is the first book of David Stahler Jr.'s gripping Truesight trilogy.
"Stahler's powerful debut novel is two parts science-fiction thriller and one part cautionary fable about the dangers of fundamentalism. ...Supple writing and unusual twists should keep readers firmly hooked." --Publishers Weekly
