Seeker by Arwen Elys Dayton

 Cover of Seeker

The night Quin Kincaid takes her Oath, she will become what she has trained to be her entire life. She will become a Seeker. This is her legacy, and it is an honor.
As a Seeker, Quin will fight beside her two closest companions, Shinobu and John, to protect the weak and the wronged. Together they will stand for light in a shadowy world.
And she’ll be with the boy she loves–who’s also her best friend.
But the night Quin takes her Oath, everything changes.
Being a Seeker is not what she thought. Her family is not what she thought. Even the boy she loves is not who she thought.
And now it’s too late to walk away.

****Ani’s Review****

When I think of Seeker by Arwen Elys Dayton I think of: Druids, sacred rites of passage, greed, and revenge. The Druids in this story act as judge and jury and Quin is about to become one. She has been taught to be principled and fair but when she learns her father is anything but and her boyfriend only wants to become a Seeker for revenge, her world is turned upside down.

Seeker is a study in contrasts, showing human nature as it can be – violent, ugly, and flawed as well as kind, generous, and forgiving. It is all action and mayhem within an alternate reality. I really enjoyed the version of Hong Kong’s bridge city. I am happy to say that the characters were well developed and the writing was enjoyable. I would recommend Seeker for Young Adults on up due to the amount of violence and drug use.
