Times are hard for Dieter Resnick. In a post-depression America, his only hope of getting out of the economic wasteland called Las Vegas is to earn a full scholarship to a private university. The problem? He just accidentally killed a boy while trying to avoid having his head crushed in. Magic is messy, and Dieter soon discovers that in evil or unskilled hands, it can often be lethal. At least he has a vampire on his side.

With I first read the summary of this novel, I admit that I was less than enthusiastic. The two main protagonists sounded like your typical underdogs: one a talented but untrained "nice guy," and the other an angst-ridden social outcast with immense skill. It was an unexpected delight, therefore, to discover original, well-defined personalities and odd bits of humor that elevated these characters beyond their tropes. Dieter was surprisingly charming for a total nerd, while Rei's dual nature and strange appreciation of puns were as entertaining as they were fascinating. Other characters received the barest of consideration in terms of development of personality, however, and while this is not unexpected for a plot-driven novel, one could only hope that they are not as one-dimensional as they seem.

Following the idea of cliches and overused plot devices, the concept of a "magic school" has been done, and done quite thoroughly. Even so, the author manages to differentiate Elliot College by its particular approach to magical theory and education. There is a tongue-in-cheek handling of supernatural stereotypes that is executed particularly well.

Deviating from the squeaky-clean approach to YA fiction, Zero Sight is unabashedly frank in its use of crass language and its descriptions of violence.

A young man discovers he can see people's auras. He is called to a magical University, where the smart but kindly Professor welcomes him. He finds he is the only one with no knowledge of the magical world and its customs, and meets other classmates who help him. The magical world tries its best to remain hidden from the normal folk.

Before you can say Harry Potter, our University is under attack from evil group that wants to wipe out the good guys. And the University students have to stop them.

In spite of all this, I still give this book a good rating, as the book is still quiet interesting, and rarely for a Fantasy book, actually moves fast. The author understands that you do not have to explain everything, and never lets the world or description come in the way of the action.

Try out the sample page. If you like it, you will love the book, as it moves at that pace throughout.

The book is a part of a series, but you can read this 1st one by itself. I liked it well enough to try the 2nd book.

I can't really expand on too much more that hasn't already been covered. What we have here is a really well written urban fantasy novel that introduces us to young Dieter Resnick. He's a young man that has the gift of "Sight", namely he can see auras on other people and as such, can "see" when bad things are about to happen.

Without giving anything away, when a new facet of his ability manifests in a terrifying way, Dieter is accepted into a small, very private university that caters to people like him. I instantly thought of the Harry Potter series, where there's this school for gifted, or magical, people. However, that's where the similarities end. The kids, teachers, and the interactions amongst them are way more realistic to me. I can easily see the popular kids giving the unpopular ones a hard time, etc.

Along the way he meets an attractive vampiress named Rei, who unbeknownst to him is his protector. Let's just say she's good at her job.

The fight scenes were a tad too realistic for my tastes, but I have to tip my hat to Mr. Shier. He has crafted an excellent book that had hooked me from the moment I started reading it. Dieter's running narrative throughout the story were absolutely hysterical!!

I read this book as it was chosen as one of the book on the month selections for the Indie Book Club on Goodreads. Awesome selection! Can't wait for the next installment!

Zero Sight by B Justin Shier start off in Las Vegas following Dieter a kid who just wants to get out of town and make something of himself. He attends a pretty rough highschool and is literally fighting just to get by. Dieter is a special kid, he has some unique abilities on top of being a very smart guy. He hits some pretty massive speed bumps on the way, but he does get into college and on his bus trip across the country he meets Rei, a beautiful girl with whom he has no idea how to act. The interaction between the two of them had me laughing out loud several times.

There were a few parts of the story that slowed down, but for the most part the plot moved along at a good pace. Since Mr. Shier is a med student there were some pretty graphic descriptions of the gore involved. The story has several plot twists that I did not see coming. Overall this is a great book and I cannot wait to read the second installment.
