Book Review: SEEKER, by Arwen Elys Dayton

SEEKER, by Arwen Elys Dayton

Quin, Shinobu and John—three very different young people with three very different destinies that are compelled to intertwine. All three train to be a Seeker, but each for a different reason. Quin seeks to bring about justice and set things right. Shinobu wants to please his father and be near Quin. John has ulterior motives and a promise he needs to keep to someone. The only problem is: None of them have any clue what’s in store for them, and becoming a Seeker isn’t what any of them believe it to be.

Fast-paced, quick action and never a really dull moment can be found in this book. While I wouldn’t necessarily call it a page-turner, you definitely won’t find many moments in which you’re compelled to skim or skip anything, because everything has a purpose and the action just never lets up.
