Reviews for the Book
"Spirit Sight is one of those fine novels that blends all of the elements of fantasy with the soul-searching, coming of age of the main character. Every page is full to the brim with external crises and internal realizations and truths. You won't be able to put this book down, and you also will never be able to forget it." -Kathie Giorgio, author of All Told and If You Tame Me
About the Author: Ross Hightower
Somehow, after spending most of his life in the south, Ross found myself living in Milwaukee and loving it. One cold, snowy morning, not too long ago, he woke with a story stuck in my head. That wasn’t unusual, but what happened next was unprecedented. He wrote it down. That small story grew into his first novel, Spirit Sight. While he anxiously waits for its publication, Deb, his partner of 34 years, published Argren Blue, a prequel to Spirit Sight. Some might wonder why it took him so long to find his calling in life, but he’s just grateful he has.
