Book Review | Seers
Title: Seers (Seers – Trilogy)
Author: Heather Frost
Book Synopsis from Amazon:
For Kate Bennet, surviving the car wreck that killed her parents means big changes and even bigger problems. As she begins to see auras and invisible people, Kate must learn to trust Patrick O’Donnell, a handsome Guardian, or risk her life being overrun with Demons. She soon realizes that both she and her heart are in big-time trouble.
I expected Seers to be predictable, your standard young adult novel, but I was pleasantly surprised by the spins that Frost created, particularly with the end of the book.
The beginning pulled me right in, though it slows down a bit in the middle. For me, this was due to Kate’s inability to decide on a response to Patrick, the new boy in school. She spends a lot of time going back and forth between being terrified of him and drawn to him. It gets old. I guess I’m just one of those readers who doesn’t need the character to have a lengthened reaction to feel satisfied with their decisions during the book. I just wanted Kate to acknowledge that Patrick was weird then move on with it.
The second half of the book pulled me in and I couldn’t put it down. I was particularly impressed with Frost’s creativity in the last conflict before the end of the book. I don’t want to go into any spoilers, but I was very impressed with how it ended.
Seers is the first book in a trilogy. I’m always nervous when I get to the end of a book that I know has a sequel coming out because I expect there to be a huge cliffhanger. Thankfully, with Seers, the ending was very satisfying while simultaneously drawing you in to the next book. I am very excited to see what is in store for Kate in the second book.
