Seeker; Arwen Elys Dayton

Seeker (Seeker, #1)Seeker by Arwen Elys Dayton
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was such an infuriating book: there were wonderful parts, and "hot mess" parts and they were so entangled it was difficult at times to read. The wonderful: the mystery of the Seekers and the Dreads, their past and their mission. The "hot mess": too many POVs (note to authors - first person doesn't work all the time. stop it. now.), a love triangle, and flashbacks. Oh, and weak worldbuilding. This is set in (I think) Modern-Medieval Scotland, Modern Hong Kong and Steampunk London. See what I mean? Quin is a great character and I can see so much change and growth in her. Maud could be a strong character if she's allowed to be, while John and Shinobu don't register as more than token good/bad boys.
