Seer: A Werelock Evolution Series Duet (Book 1 of 2)
By Hettie Ivers
Ten years ago, seers across the globe were wiped out, thrusting the supernatural world into figurative darkness.
When word spreads that the first new seer in a decade has been found, powerful forces will hunt her.
The dead will unite to defend her.
And a repressed sadist werelock will abandon his century-long vow of celibacy to claim her as his own.
Note: Seer is a full-length novel, but it is NOT A STANDALONE. While Seer may be enjoyed as a first read in the series, for maximum entertainment, it is recommended that you read the books that precede it.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is the first book in a SEER: A WERELOCK EVOLUTION SERIES DUET so if course this ends in a cliffhanger! If you haven’t read these books, now is a good time to jump in but you’d definitely get a better grip of the overall storyline if you started at the beginning.
Ten years ago, all of the seers in the world were killed by a maniacal werelock, Maribel. “Seers” are humans who have visions of the past, present and future; visions that help and/or hinder the werelock community. Lauren is a college student who’s just now coming into her powers. She comes from a long line of seers but without her grandmother’s guidance, who was killed with the rest of the seers, she’s lost in the werelock world. Kai is the Reinoso pack’s healer. He’s also a sadist who has suppressed his urges for over a century since his fated mate, Maribel, severed their mating ties. Lauren and Kai are inexplicably drawn to each other but they have huge obstacles in their way, obstacles that may be impossible to overcome.
It seems like I’ve been waiting for Kai’s story FOR-EV-UH! He’s so twisted and dark and broken. I mean the poor man is a celibate sadist! And, unfortunately, Lauren has no choice but to be thrown in the middle of an old war between several alpha werewolves and their packs. Beyond the plot, the best thing about this series is the complexity of the characters. I could be reading from the “good” guy’s perspective, completely on their side, absolutely enthralled by their story and then in the next chapter, I’m reading about the “bad” guy and I find myself feeling the same thing. I can feel empathy and compassion for each of the characters because I can so clearly see both the light and the dark in each. And I equally adore each of the book’s players in spite of (or maybe because of) their darker parts. Sounds heavy right? No worries though, Hettie also does a fabulous job of smoothing the edges with witty humor and clever wordplay.
The werelock world is full of…well, for lack of a better word…LIFE! Where each individual is unique and complicated. As a character driven reader, I loved watching Lauren and Kai navigate the labyrinth they found themselves in. I’m on pins and needles to find out how they overcome their enormous hurdles! Told from dual POVs with a strangely hopeful ending. I voluntarily read and reviewed this book.
Hettie Ivers has a tendency to see satire and irony everywhere. She enjoys writing flawed characters who make mistakes, and favors fresh spins on popular romance novel tropes.
