Crown and Scalpel - a gripping fantasy novel featuring blind protagonist

Caroline J. L. Thomason and a copy of her book Crown and Scalpel

Crown and Scalpel by C. J. L. Thomason is a tale of a blind doctor who uses echolocation to see – with elements of romance, bereavement, and a dark family history of betrayal.

Using the rebounding echoes from these clicks is how Ambarenyll sees his world ever since he became blind in a Darmé rebel attack. 

Thirteen years have passed, and he feels comfortable enough to pick up his stethoscope and practise medicine once more. 

But the fragile relation between the Mané and Darmé factions in Landaïla is threatened with a new series of rebel attacks, and the doctor winds up in the middle of the conflict when he has to treat Princess Jade, heir of the Mané King. 

He is confronted with the past he long buried. Matters become more complicated as the attraction between Ambarenyll and Jade grows. Little do they know that a dark family secret is the very foundation for the ongoing conflict and could plummet everything into even deeper chaos.
