To Read or Not to Read?

Seeker by Arwen Ellys Dalton

Note: I received a free copy of Seeker through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Seekers travel through time and space, fighting to save humanity and make things right. At least that’s what Quin, Shinobu, and John, three Seekers in training, have been made to believe. But then Quin and Shinobu take their oaths and discover they’ve spent their lives training to be assassins.

John on the other hand knows what a Seeker does but he’s there for family revenge. Things have gotten complicated for him though because, ever since he joined the training, he’s had a relationship with Quin.

There’s fighting, fantasy, tons of character development, and plenty of mysteries that need to be solved. The story line covers the past and present with the added confusion of self induced amnesia of one of the characters but it’s good. There’s a history to the book and I loved it.

What with all the background information and shifting points of view and timelines this is not the easiest read though I found it enjoyable. Just don’t choose this book if you’re looking for a quick easy read. And be warned that this is the first book in a new series.

But if you like stories that are both fantastical but real at the same time (because yes, each character is realistic and flawed and nobody/nothing is perfect) then give Seeker a try.
