Seeker by Arwen Elys Dayton


Seeker by Arwen Elys Dayton is centered around one girl named Quin and her destiny of becoming a Seeker, a protector of the world and someone who brings justice to those who have wronged it. Quin is learning how to become a Seeker along with her half third cousin, Shinobu, and her secret boyfriend, John. But, when John falls to pass the final test and Quin and Shinobu continue on, their whole world goes upside. The two cousins learn what it really means to be a Seeker and that everything they have been told is a lie. In this epic and amazing story you journey through Scotland, Japan, England, and more with Quin and a few others to protect our world from tumbling into death and chaos.

Seeker by Arwen Elys Dayton was amazing. I absolutely loved every minute of it. The plot was filled with action and a little love; there was never a dull moment. Every character was complicated and fully developed, I feel like I have known these people for years. One of the things I really enjoyed about this book was the switching of perspective between the four characters. The reader gets to really dive into how the character thinks, their opinions about a situation; plus the author could make characters be on other sides of the world, and it would flow nicely. The only unfortunate thing about the switching perspectives was that it was hard to see the antagonist of the story, as the antagonist. Because you saw their thoughts and they were so well developed, I almost sided with him sometimes and felt his anger towards the main protagonist as logical. I think that really worked if the author wanted you to feel that way. But if the antagonist was supposed to be a clearly malicious, I do not think that worked. But overall, Seeker by Arwen Elys Dayton is so extraordinary and wonderful; I would definitely recommend
it to anyone who likes some fantasy and adventure.
