“Katniss and Tris would approve.” —

“This book will not disappoint.” —
“Fans of Veronica Roth’s Divergent, Marie Lu’s Legend, and Suzanne Collins’s The Hunger Games series: your next obsession has arrived.” —SLJ
A genre-bending sci-fi/fantasy about a group of teens who are trained to kill and marked to die.
   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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I really liked this I don't understand why people have disliked this book. It has an interesting storyline that makes you question where several aspects of this made-up world came from (and I find it keeps me reading because I want to know the answers). I found it interesting and really liked the book, then the rest of the series as well. I recommend to anyone who is interested in reading this to try it for themselves, since everyone can have a different opinion of a novel.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from First part was good I actually am one of the few who enjoyed the first part of the book, but... then it just got worse and worse until I skimmed through the last few chapters. There are much better books out there.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Seeker Not bad, but not very good either. The first half of the book was slow and boring, but I guess it is building up what will happen in the second half. The second half of the book starts to get interesting. Especially when Quinn and Shinobu finally meets up again. Really enjoy reading Shinobu's chapters, he is my favorite character in this book.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I wanted so bad to love this I wanted so bad to love this book. It's a fantasy novel set in Scotland that from the book cover and ads suggest it is full of adventure! I was hooked. Until I started reading it. The book was very slow until I was 75% through, and the world building was foggy and loose to a point where I just couldn't become immersed. Then the main character loses her memory and we have to reread the loose explanation of her role as a seeker and about her world. It was frustrating at most times. My favourite character was by far Shinobu. He was humorous, and flawed. Maud was not far behind him. I loved reading about her past, and present. Overall I gave the book 3 stars as the last 25% of it was really enjoyable, fast paced, and I would purchase the second book if it is anything like the last part of the first. I will wait for reviews on whether or not this will be worthy of my reading time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This book is amazing I don't know why everyone hates this book because I found it to be one of the best books I have ever read.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst book of 2015 This book was so poorly written and organised, that I struggled through the first 36 chapters (which is roughly halfway through this book) and I gave up.
