New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Veronica Rossi's new fantasy adventure in the Rider series—Seeker .
When Daryn claimed she was seeing visions during her sophomore year of high school, no one believed the truth. She wasn't losing her mind, she was gaining the Sight the ability to see the future. If she just paid attention to the visions, they'd provide her with clues and show her how she could help people. Really help them. Daryn embraced her role as a Seeker. The work she did was important. She saved lives.
Sebastian was her first and worst mistake.
Since the moment she inadvertently sealed him in a dark dimension with Samrael the last surviving demon in the Kindred guilt has plagued her. Daryn knows Sebastian is alive and waiting for help. It's up to her to rescue him. But now that she needs the Sight more than ever to guide her, the visions have stopped.
Daryn must rely on her instincts, her intelligence, and on blind faith to lead the riders who are counting on her in search of Sebastian. As they delve into a shadowy realm where nothing is as it seems and where Samrael is steadily amassing power, Daryn faces the ultimate test. Will she have to become evil to destroy evil? The very fate of humankind rests in the answer.
Seeker picks up a few months after Riders ended. I loved seeing all the characters again. All of their personalities are so distinct and their own. You’re never confused about who’s talking because their mannerisms speak for themselves.
This book is also told in 2 points of view, Gideon and Daryn. Both are dealing with a lot of guilt and trying to figure things out without asking for help. Because they are both stubborn. I loved seeing how each of them felt about certain situations. Gideon questions everything, but Daryn takes a lot of leaps on blind faith. It’s one of the things I love about her character.
I really like seeing the horsemen work together. They are so in sync that they move almost as one. The other dimension is super creepy. I would never want to go there, but it’s a necessity to get Sebastian back.
While Gideon, Marcus, Jode and Daryn are in there they face a constant challenge. It’s easy to lose yourself and that’s something that nobody wants. I felt their emotions and how they were trying to cope.
There were some things that I figured out, but others that I didn’t see coming
This was a great ending to this duology, and I can’t wait to see what Rossi puts out next.
