Arwen Elys Dayton spends months doing research for her stories. Her explorations have taken her around the world to places like the Great Pyramid (which she explored by a single fading flashlight when researching Resurrection), Hong Kong and its many islands, and lots of ruined castles in Scotland. She enjoys creating complete worlds inhabited by characters who charm, frustrate or inspire.
This story starts with a generation of 3 teens training to become the next Seekers and eventually paying for the paths their parents have chosen. As the story progresses we see that there are different houses or families in competition to be the leader, to possess certain weapons and writings.
Dimensions and time elements have no hold on the characters. They go through different periods. Seeker has a lot of action. Bullet time is a real thing within it. I would categorize it as epic fantasy sci-fi with a hint of steampunk.
This book has so much information. You really, really have to focus not to miss what is happening. You start thinking one way about someone or something then previously unknown information is given that changes things up. Who's bad? Who's good? Can there be a good outcome with so much bad blood?
I would recommend this book for someone that likes to see strange new weapons and figure out mysteries that aren't spoon-fed to the reader.
