Seers Review

Seers by Heather Frost
Expected release date October 8, 2011

From Good Reads

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.

My Review

This was my first time reading a Guardians/Demon story. It made for a nice change. The story was an interesting one. I liked the plot and the realistic dynamic of teenage, “I like two boys”, drama.  
Kate is picking up the pieces of her life, trying to get back to normal, after the accident. Her and her sisters are now living with her grandparents. She is able to see people’s auras and know their feelings by the colors. That is until she meets Patrick, who has a silver aura. She also sees a boy no one else is seeing who has the same color aura. She is attracted to Patrick but has a boyfriend already and does not know what his aura means. Her best friend Lee tries to help her sort it out but is hampered by several factors; she does not see auras, does not know what to make of Kate seeing invisible people and when the invisible boy shows himself, Lee is attracted to him. Kate does not tell Lee that the guy she likes is the invisible boy. While Kate is trying to decide if she can trust Patrick she starts seeing people with black auras. Now Kate must make her choices, of who to trust and which guy will be her boyfriend.
As you can see this book is filled with intrigue, danger and romance. The author understands that the character is in an unbelievable situation and takes pains to give us insight into her thought patterns. I really liked that. It gave the character and the plot more creditability. The characters are likable and you are easily able to care about them. There were openings left at the ending that lead me to suspect Seers is the first book in a series. I found this book enjoyable enough that I look forward to that. I would recommend Seers as a good YA paranormal suspense/romance story.

I received this book from Net Galley. No compensation for review was offered or received. A review while appreciated was not mandatory.
