In the Uplands, people have magical and fearsome gifts. Orrec, a boy growing into his powers, can destroy any living thing with simply a glance. But he refuses to use his ability, and wears a blindfold to protect others from his devastating gaze. This allegorical coming-of-age tale shows that power can be cruel.

    " Dark in the way that real YA fiction should be. The various brantors and -mants are a bit difficult to parse at the beginning, but if you just read, the field resolves itself by about forty pages in. "

    " Understated, stark, coming-of-age story. Everything seems magnified in the story - the sorrows more sorrowful, the joys more joyful. "
