Visions and his fear of Mixel Corporation drive the formerly blind Jacob from his new home, in this conclusion to the Truesight Trilogy. He takes ship with the comforting Captain Bennet, seeking the planet Teiresias, to which he’s been summoned by glimpses of a Seer like himself. Jacob’s space journey is fraught with danger: A shady fellow passenger is following him, pirates attack their ship and a crash landing proves fatal to most of the crewmen. When Jacob finds others like him, there's no peace to be had, for he is their long-awaited savior who will bring the Seers to safety. Jacob’s unexplained near-magical powers don’t detract from the pleasantly unexpected conclusion of his character arc. While Jacob’s earlier adventures suffered from a heavy-handed connection between metaphorical and physical blindness, this final volume deftly avoids that weakness. The climax of Jacob’s adventures will more than satisfy the readers who've reached this point in the trilogy. The success of this offering, however, does not merit the purchase of the previous two books. (Science fiction. 11-13)
