Review: “Seers” by Heather Frost
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
“Seers” was a nice surprise. I wasn’t sure I was going to like it as much as I did, mainly because I struggled to get through the beginning (which does actually serve a purpose), but in the end I ended up enjoying this one quite a lot.
The story is about Kate, a high school senior, who survives an accident that kills her parents. Ever since the accident, she’s been able to see auras around people (everyone except for herself); she became a Seer. When a new boy shows up on the first day of school, Kate seems to be drawn to him, not knowing that Patrick is her Guardian. Together, Kate and Patrick must protect the living by seeking out demons. Yes, there is a love story in here as Kate and Patrick do end up developing feelings for one another, but it’s not the story. It’s more so a story about Kate dealing with the loss of her parents, the problems with her relationship with Aaron, and her struggle to understand her new ‘sight’. I’m really interested to know where the story will go from here. The ending of “Seers” left me wanting to know what’ll happen next.
Heather Frost has a wonderful writing style; everything flows quite nicely. The characters are excellent, especially Kate. This is a great young adult novel – one you should definitely make time to check out.
