The Seer's Lover (The Seven Archangels Series) - Kat de Falla

The Seer’s Lover has been on my TBR for some time, but I did not get the chance to read it before now. My reasons for purchasing this title at the time was twofold. I chose to read this book based on the synopsis and the cover, which I found eerie. I had no experience with the with the author’s work, but because this was a story about the supernatural world, I expected to have a great time.


What is the book about?
Calise Rowe, a pharmacist, has the ability to sense unusual energy from persons she comes in contact with. She did not understand what it meant and her questions went unanswered. However, she would discover the true meaning behind her abilities, when she inadvertently exposed herself to a demon and was saved by a stranger. The stranger directs her to travel to Costa Rica where she would find the answers she desperately seeks.
Lucas Rojas is a seer, with the ability to see demons and angels who walk among humans. He comes from a long line of seers, dating as far back as to the time of the Messiah. He has kept his abilities secret because his kind has been hunted by demons whose intent was to obliterate their lineage.


What I enjoyed.
The story introduces readers to a world where demonic forces desire to control humans where angels protect humans from the wrath of these and seers whose job it is to destroy these evil forces. The beginning was intriguing which, made me eager to uncover the secrets that lay between the pages.

I found the fight scenes between Lucas and the demons exciting and exhilarating. I thought these scenes were well written. The author provided detailed descriptions as it relates to these scenes allowing me to visualise every action that took place at this point.

I enjoyed the way the author conveyed her feelings into the story. Her ability to keep me engaged was on par for the most part. I thought the word building was good. The pacing was good. This along with the writing helped me to get through the story.

The issues I had.

Unfortunately, I had a hard time connecting with the characters. None of them elicited any emotion within me. Have you ever been to an event where you encounter a group of people whom you have never met, but for some reason, their actions prevent you from wanting to get to know them and you can’t wait to leave? Well sad to say this is how I felt about the characters in this book. My least favourite character was Shane, Calise’s ex-boyfriend. I found him to be weak and pathetic. His relationship with Calise ended a long time, but he was still obsessing to the point where he became unstable.

The romance between Lucas and Calise lacked credibility. First, it was an insta-love connection and second at no time did I see where their feelings for each other were allowed to develop. They never got time to know each other, before declaring their love for each other. As a result, I was unable to connect with them as a couple.

The story felt a bit disjointed in some areas. The movement between scenes in some areas did not flow resulting in it appearing unreal. Then there were the many unanswered questions that I was left with at the end of the story. I am still trying to figure out what happened. I am wondering if the answers are in book two, but I am not sure if I am keen to venture there.


Verdict
This book had potential, but it did not work for me. However, even though it didn’t work for me, don’t be discouraged from giving this book a try. If you enjoy paranormal stories about angels and demons and don’t mind insta-love connections, you will love this book

The Seer
The Seer - Ariel MacArran This was more romance and less sci-fi than expected, but still an enjoyable read. My GR friends and those that I follow are not in agreement with me on this one.

It's kinda slow, there's really no reason for this story to take 400 pages in telling. And there are some editing/spelling/grammar issues. Not much character development.

But I still enjoyed it. *shrug* It happens.

The Seer's Lover (The Seven Archangels Series)
The Seer's Lover (The Seven Archangels Series) - Kat de Falla Calise Rowe took over the family business as a pharmacist. One night a strange man comes in with a prescription just as Calise is starting to close the store. As Calise is filling the prescription for the man becomes physical with her. Another man comes in the shop and basically runs the first man off. As she leaves the store she finds the 2nd man dying in the parking lot. He tells her to find his sister Carmen in Costa Rica.
Calise has always had the ability to see and feel things about people that others do not. When She jumps on a plane and heads to Costa Rica it is like landing in a whole new realm for her filled with Angels, Demons, and other supernatural beings with powers as well.
The book was pretty good. It felt a bit rushed at times. This is one book I would of liked a bit more explanations and descriptions in, to make the story come together a bit better.

Query (Terran Times Second Wave Book 32) Viola Grace Review
Query (Terran Times Second Wave Book 32) - Viola Grace

Freddy goes to the Volunteer Centre with the blessing of her family and finds out that an alien bloodline runs in her veins. Somewhere in space, there is a world waiting for a new Oracle to take the position of the original Delphics. 


Knowing that having a job waiting is a better plan than going out blind; she ends up at a Guardian base with a heavily tattooed Admaryn watching her intently.

The moment she touches him, she sees them tangled together far into the future, and the answering knowledge is in his eyes. He wants her and intends to have her, no questions asked.

 

Having a talent to see the future makes for an interesting set of conflicts. I like the hero and the heroine but this is a fairly bland romance.

The Seer's Daughter (Beyond the Grave #1) by Athena Daniels
The Seer's Daughter (Beyond The Grave Series Book 1) - Athena Daniels
If you are looking for a book to give you goosebumps and keep you watching over your shoulder, then I can recommend this one! Now, to be fair, I don't read horror as my imagination is overactive and this is probably as close to it as I could get. BUT this didn't seem like horror to me, just an exceedingly well-written supernatural suspense, that gave me tingles at all the right moments.

Sage and Ethan belong together - you know this from the moment they meet. Instead of the usual miscommunication to deal with though, these two have a serial killer, a paranormal investigative unit, and a lack of information both from friends and family, and also the unit that Ethan works for. Both Sage and Ethan are excellent main leads, with sassy attitudes and wit to spare. I loved how they were when they were together, although I did want to kick Ethan at one point, just on Sage's behalf you understand!

I got dragged away from this book late in the evening by my husband, as I had an exceedingly early start the next day. This didn't stop me from thinking about the book and what I had read for well over an hour after the lights went out, as well as dreaming about it! If you want a spooky supernatural suspense, with a heat warning too, then I can most definitely recommend this book. 

Although it does round off nicely for this book, you are left with a natural cliffhanger which will leave you aching to get your hands on book 2!
