''The Sight'' by David Clements-Davies (author of ''Literature/FireBringer''), is a xenofictional novel about wolves and psychic powers. It is often dismissed as "''Fire Bringer'' with wolves" -- the two stories share a universe and several plot similarities, but ''The Sight'' is a good novel on its own. It can be said that the novel is a spiritual sequel to ''Fire Bringer''.
