Title: Dark Seeker
Author: Taryn Brown
She’s the Seeker. He’s the hunted. What’s at stake could kill them both…
For 17-year-old Seeker, Janie Grey, ridding the Baltimore streets of the undead is an inherited duty passed down from her Cherokee ancestors. Seeker Training Lesson #1: Never trust the undead. After her father’s tragic death, Janie creates her own life lesson: Love isn’t worth the risk. Both lessons are easy to follow until she encounters the flawed Kai Sterdam. At first, she believes he is the hybrid she is trained to hunt. But, when he has human traits, she determines she doesn’t know what he is. As Janie’s intrigue over who Kai is pushes her deeper into his mysterious past, she discovers a shocking truth that is even more harrowing than the evil they are up against. It’s a secret Kai wants to keep hidden, especially from Janie.
I couldn’t wait to read this so I dug in this weekend. I have to say some of the lines are pretty corny. The action isn’t bad in the book though. I can still enjoy that. The romance isn’t bad per say, it’s just not new. Then again I haven’t read all the way into the book. I’ll have to reserve my other thoughts for the review which I will most likely publish next month. I’m a little disappointed with this book. That’s the way things go when you get free books though. Maybe the book just got off to a slow start and things will get better from here on out.
