You were born to learn to have faith in yourself and in others. There is a lot of spiritual energy surrounding you, so you need a strong spiritual base. Do you feel intuitive? You have a natural intuitive ability that is in some ways at odds with your highly analytic mind. This can be a point of confusion for you.
Either you block and suppress your intuition—which could lead to dissatisfaction and ill health—or you learn to respect and balance both aspects of your highly calibrated mind. Perhaps you experience the opposite: You fully embrace your psychic awareness and refuse to use your grounded, analytical abilities. Either way, inviting both aspects of your cognition analysis and intuition to co-exist and co-create can have a profoundly positive impact on your life.
And this will take a lifetime. In Numerology, the 7 is the number of contemplation and of being alone. Often those on a 7 Life Path will spend good portions of their lives on their own. Meditation is imperative. Nature is rejuvenating. You flourish and relax when you connect with the environment in some way. You need consistent exercise to move your energy around as well. Self-care is necessary for you to have a balanced life. You work best in a position where you can spend some time alone. In healthy, loving relationships, you tend to be honest, loyal, and direct. Even so, you often have trouble being supportive or praising your partner.
In terms of relating: You can have a sharp tongue, so you need to think about your style of communication and the goals you have for communicating. You tend to get stuck in your head. You have an air of secrecy about you and enjoy a sense of mystery. You may appear aloof to others, yet you are simply observing the world and processing it in your own way. I say it took me 25 years to become the person I wanted to be and 26 years to reach this unknown more mentally stable place in my mind I appeared to have been searching for.
I came across a quote a few years ago, not sure where from, that subconsciously always sticks with me:. Your smile is your logo, your personality is your business card and how you leave others feeling after having an experience with you becomes your trademark. There are always goodbyes! The downside of this lifestyle is that you have to leave all your friends and family at home, and your new friends you make you have to part ways at some point and every new experience you have you would love to share with them at that moment.
Do you have any tips for people who would love to do the same thing? Just do it! Go see the world! Travelling is easier than life itself. Traveling is by far the most educational experience to me, and I will be forever thankful. I wish for everyone to experience what I have been fortunate to. It has changed my life! There is so much to see out there and so many things you take away from people you meet. What do you value the most in life? What is your mission in life? My aim in life is to just simply always be happy. Everything always works out because it has to, it won't necessarily work out the way you thought or had in mind, but still works out anyway.
So I try my best to just live in the present, not worry about the future or dwell on the past. But I guess my ultimate goal is to be working the hobbies and lifestyle I love so that I can enjoy every day of my life for the rest of my life. I will never be made of money nor am I chasing it, therefore I know have to work the industries I love very much to be able to do them. A dream I have right now is to live in the mountains and work in the ski industry during my winters, then for the summer live by the sea so that I can work as a scuba diver and on the boats.
I love snow and I love the sea and definitely want an easy life. To follow her journey kellyoliver. Unbasic Journey. Blog About Share Your Journey. Seeker by Arwen Elys Dayton is an epic fantasy tale that sprinkles a little sci-fi and steampunk into the mix of dimension travel, time travel and the ever-present battle between good, evil and even the questionable intent!
Three young warriors have trained to be Seekers, protectors of humanity against evil. John, a talente Cast off your belief in things you can touch, taste, see or feel, use your young adult mind, where everything is possible and you do not need to be spoon-fed every single page. They also make up a loosely knit romantic triangle that will cause pain to all three. For reasons as yet unknown, the most skilled of the three, John is not allowed to take his oath and from here, the story begins in earnest as the battle for control of the ancient artifact begins that will transcend dimensions, time and place, all while turning allies into deadly foes.
Has John turned his back on all they have been taught or will the truths he reveals make for a type of outlaw justice and retribution that he will seek? Who is the true enemy? Who are the Dreads and what is their connection to the Seekers? What better way to help a young reader learn the joy of imagination, than by giving them a tale that is not instant gratification, but a journey to a final end that cannot be seen? Dayton has given great attention to her characters, leaving just even unknown to allow her readers to come to their own conclusions about them. Not weighing heavily on the romantic triangle as a spotlight, but more as an emotional pull, these teens felt real, confused, afraid, yet determined to finish what has been started.
Will they? What land will they go to next? Will the power of the artifact prove too unpredictable? Epic tales change up pacing; they build their world in teasing bites, the slower pacing helps to grasp the enormity of the situation going on. The rapid-fire pacing invokes action, danger and intrigue, all the elements of a good tale!
Epic fantasy from start to finish! Jan 24, Janie Johnson rated it really liked it Shelves: challenge. I got this book through Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. I have to say that I really enjoyed this book and found it to be very engaging with a solid plot of good vs. In this book we have Quin who has undergone years of training to become what she thought was a very noble and honorable position, a Seeker. She later discovers that her skills were going to be used in I got this book through Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.
She later discovers that her skills were going to be used in a less than noble manner. For years she was lied to and no one appears as they seem. Quin sets out to make things right as she travels to many places in very magical ways. I have not read a book like this before and it was very refreshing to me. Then again I don't read much fantasy so maybe this is just new to me. I was engaged with the story from the beginning and found it hard to put the book down. It is chock full of greed, revenge, betrayal and even love. I found it amazing that even though there was somewhat of a love triangle, there was not any of this insta-love going on that we find in so many YA novels.
I found the world building and the plot beautifully written with great imagery. Most of the time I could imagine myself there at the estate in Scotland or even on the bridges of Hong Kong, amazing. I also loved the air of mystery there was in the book from the very start. Readers will find themselves trying to make sense of things right along with the characters. I loved that. There was non stop adventure and excitement throughout the book and I find it had a good ending to make room for the next book.
Our characters are very well created and very realistic imo. I also must say that they are also pretty relatable. It had plenty of backstory on our characters which made them even more realistic to me and made me feel such raw emotion for them in each of their situations. Quin and Shinobu are definitely my favorite characters, but I also have to say Maud made her way to that list as well. I loved how they fought for a better purpose even when they were pushed back every step of the way. Made them really likable.
They evolved well through the story. For me, that is one of the most important elements for a character to achieve trough a story. I recommend this book to anyone who loves a different kind of fantasy story with plenty to keep the mind of a reader totally engaged. I am giving this book a 4. View all 4 comments. Reviewed by: Rabid Reads My mother and I were at constant loggerheads when I was growing up, and the reason for that was simple: she hated being questioned as much as I hated being expected to blindly follow orders.
It was a problem. Am I comparing my mother to the particularly nasty breed of mercenary that Quin our MC 's father Briac is? I'm kidding! But I am explaining why I have a hard time being sympathetic to Quin and Shinobu her cousin. As hard as I tried to walk in their shoes, being "raised to obey Briac's word as law," was never going to be a circumstance I could empathize with. But there's a reason for that: the more a work of fiction resembles reality, the less I am likely to enjoy it. I know that about myself. It's not a good thing or a bad thing, it's just a thing.
I didn't have the same problems with Seeker that a lot of other readers had. As brief as the synopsis is, I actually read it for once , and I thought it explained the situation fairly well. Quin has been trained all her short life to be a Seeker. She's been told countless stories detailing the noble exploits of past Seekers. What exactly is a Seeker? Well, I'll grant you that it was never said outright, but it was pretty obvious to me that a Seeker was a member of an organization of highly trained warriors whose purpose was to objectively right wrongs whatever that means.
Over time, that organization has become corrupt, and they are now nothing more than an unscrupulous band of assassins. BUT the elder of the two mentees is clearly corrupt himself. Another complaint I've seen a lot is poor world-building, and it was definitely not a strength. However, as the world pretty clearly resembles our own, I didn't find the lack of explanation too upsetting. I just assumed it was ish years in the future. The end. And yet. Seeker is pitched as a book that defies genres. And that's true. But unlike other genre-defying books, for example, Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor, the various genres didn't really mesh together well.
In comparison, Seeker tries to be both science fiction and fantasy in the same world. The problem with trying to write a traditional "high" fantasy-type book, but having it take place in the modern or slightly in the future world is that who cares about a magic ATH-uh-may that cuts through space like a. I mean, there are "air cars" that presumably fly, and I'm pretty sure they still have normal airplanes in addition to the weird airship thing that one of the characters lives on and if they don't, that's stupid.

- His Lordships Fancy: The Golden Boy.
- Los Quemados, Book I: The Shadow of Don Quixote.
And yeah, a magical cuts-through-space-like-a- Stargate -wormhole-knife is slightly more convenient. And then there's John. So focused is he on restoring his family to its former glory, and avenging his ancestors, including, but not limited to his mother whom he watched die at the hands of a rival Seeker when he was child that he justifies the basest of tactics to achieve his goal. So the best bet of a sympathetic character becomes as disgusting and pathetic as all the others.
Overall, I had too many objections to enjoy Seeker. Not recommended. View all 24 comments. Mar 09, Faye, la Patata rated it did not like it Shelves: did-not-finish. This book was amazingly bad.

At a certain point, in the second half of the book, the book started flowing more smoothly and once I got into it, I couldn't stop reading. That was too long, and half of the questions I had about the read: very, VERY vague worldbuilding and realm this book established weren't even halfway answered.
Timelines and style of dialogues kept jumping every which way but loose, and the characters were thinly drawn up to a certain point. It was terribly convoluted, more than it had to be, and I have a feeling that people with less patience than I will not see this book through until the end.
Unexpected agency on the threshold: Asylum seekers narrating from an asylum seeker centre
It's a shame, because there are some good moments to be had here, even if it's peppered with really problematic stuff which made me cringe. Game of Thrones meets Hunger Games, though, this is not. High fantasy this is definitely not. Terribly false advertising and more of a measure that people need to stop making high expectation comparisons like this when they don't even halfway meet the book's actual establishment. I will actually tell you what this book is about when I have the chance to write the full review.
But it was something of a decent read in its better moments. I just hope the next book isn't so darned hard to get through. Full review: So this reflection took more than a day for me to think about writing a review about. More like a week two weeks? Oy vey. Dayton's novel has to be one of the most convoluted written debuts of a YA fantasy novel I've ever read.
I'm not going to say it didn't have some genuine moments of interest for me, but they were far and few between, not to mention the read was a long slog that frequently frustrated me. I can only imagine what it might be like for a teenager picking up this book. The question posed by this novel in particular: What is a Seeker? That simple. You would be surprised by how long it actually takes to get to something close to resembling a true answer for that.
Even then, the question isn't really addressed. The story revolves primarily around three trainees: Quin, Shinobu, and John. These three are in training to become "Seekers. It's classified as a very honorable position. That I could work with because at least there's a promise to develop what those roles are.
Quin and Shinobu are on their respective track to fulfilling this role, training with swords and magic in the midst of Scotland. John is considered the elder and one who will not fulfill the role he's supposed to play because of his age and distractions. Yet Quin and John are in a secret well The blatant love triangle angle made me wince because of its implications, but I figured I'd follow the read to see where it lead. I think the very first sign of problems I had with the novel happened when Shinobu and Quin discover the "truth" about what their Seeker role is supposed to entail.
Apparently they are aware of some grave situation attached to their role that's supposed to be earth shattering, mind blowing, and completely making them question everything they know about the people around them. Unfortunately, the reader is never made aware of what this horrible thing is. I kept reading this actively thinking: "I'm missing something huge here, what happened? My understanding of the story even though this wasn't made all that clear was that Seekers had the ability to wield a weapon called an athame, and that there were several different types of athame throughout the world.
John became preoccupied with wanting to learn how to wield it and spent all this time trying to find Quin in order for her to show him how to use it which, dude, really? And while he doesn't want to use force and urges people not to hurt her, somehow he has people trying to find her and attacking her in order to restrain her?
And he claims he loves her in a really creepy way? In case it isn't clear, I hated John's character. At least what little flesh was there to pinch of him. Quin wants nothing to do with her respective role of wielding the athame. Shinobu was the character I liked the most in this novel because 1.
He had a more palpable backstory between hearing the story about his conflicts with family and his feelings of helplessness, I was like - okay, I can identify with him a little, but the development comes so late in the novel, I don't know if many people will latch on to him.
Plus there's the whole odd insinuation that he really likes Quin even though they're supposed to be related down the line It's weird.

Just weird. There's a fourth character in this novel named Maud who has a destiny to fulfill herself, something like a soothsayer or some concious being that has to do with the Seeker roles, but it's so threadbare that I had a hard time connecting exactly what her role was to the overarching conflict. The story has some decent action sequences and moments of peril.
I will give it that much. It worked much better in the latter part of the novel than it did in the first. But it's hard to connect to the characters when their roles are so thin in definition even to the point where by the end of the novel, a Seeker's role is still quite undefined for overarching scope. I won't spoil the rest of the events of the novel for anyone who wants to read it, but I am going to summarize what I think the biggest problems with this novel were - and it was progressive throughout the entire novel despite harrowing action sequences and moments where the characters clashed and confronted each other.
This book did not have a strong central sense of time, place, or conflict. At all. You would think this story was high fantasy with the amount of sword training and prophecy recitations within it, but the moment guns came into the weaponry for fighting, I became really confused so what was the point of those characters training with swords and daggers again? You would think this story took place at first in a place in the past, but when televisions among other technologies are mentioned, that also threw the time measure out the window.
Is this some sort of alternate dimension? When is this taking place? This is never really answered through the novel at all. Even if it's a dimension that's parallel and unlike our own, the development of this world is so threadbare that it's hard to put your foot in it and become immersed. Mostly because it's very convoluted and confusing for descriptors. You would think this novel would have a very cultural backdrop given that it takes place in areas like Scotland and Hong Kong, but the development there is threadbare too.
Some characters who had accents later didn't have them, the environment was thinly drawn - there was very little tying it together for place or even transitions from place to place. There were so many gaps of time span that were unexplained or unvetted that it really didn't do a good job of sequencing with the story. This story sequenced itself through four different characters in a third-person omniscent perspective.
I found that I moved through the POVs fine, but the vague descriptors and establishment of the characters made it hard to connect, so the cast was never really defined enough to make their perspectives pop more. I could very well see people getting lost in this novel because of the POV switches, though, and for the way it was done.
And we're not even going to talk about the comparison to Hunger Games and Game of Thrones. There's none to be had, I think the story had interesting threads, but there was really no direction or linking that would suggest it was anything like the aforementioned stories. In other words, this book had a lot of misdirection and false advertisement. It had some great ideas, but felt like they needed to be vetted out and smoothed for transition. It's a novel with a lot of bark, but not a whole lot of bite.
I'll give the sequel a chance, but it's gotta step it up from this point. Because what I saw here were some interesting moments that never had any measure of direction or structure to help them, and that had me in the role of playing "Seeker" for answers that were never provided than following the journeys of the Seekers. Overall score: 2. Nov 10, Kathylill rated it did not like it Shelves: , young-adult , dystopian. Nothing can compare to one of the best epic fantasy and the most successful dystopian series there currently are.
Secondly the book itself is not written well.
The Seeker Trilogy
I had a hard time coming to terms with the story. What world are the characters living in? Those are questions that remain mostly unanswered. Apparently, a Seeker seeks the truth and protects, but how and from what? And then comes the moment when she takes her oath as a Seeker and is being sent on her first mission. The scene begins, there is a meadow, a house, she is scared, end of scene. Her mission as a Seeker is apparently to assassinate men, women and children, to murder for money.
She is nothing more than a mercenary. Since this was set up to be such an earthshattering experience for our main character, I would have liked to know what exactly happened. Because as it is written, I was not horrified. To be honest, when I was reading this scene s I was like: wait what? I really thought that I must have skipped some pages. But they were not there. I felt duped. The world building in general is rather minimalistic. We start of somewhere in Scotland on a private estate surrounded by forest. We are never told anything about this world or the time.
This Tokyo also is something out of a fairy tale. There are mentions of movie stars, flying ships over London, corporations next to magically changing weapons and mystical beings. All this is very confusing and somehow misleading for a reader. The world lacks depth and detail in mythology and background history. The story features some very crass plot holes and a love triangle. And not even the decently interesting characters could elevate my rating.
I simply did not like reading it, I did not finish it and I can not be compelled to read the next book in the series. Jan 28, Marianna rated it it was amazing Shelves: my-library-galley. Perhaps I would have rated this book a 4. If you are a fantasy fan and you are willing to stick to the book until the end, be patient, pay attention to details and remember what you are reading, you will really enjoy this book. The answers are there if you will only stick a I received this book as an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
The answers are there if you will only stick around long enough to find them.
Unexpected agency on the threshold: Asylum seekers narrating from an asylum seeker centre
I've also seen this book being compared to other popular novels and stories like The Hunger Games This book is very different. It should stand on its own merit and one should read this book without expectations of finding similarities with other popular novels. This book is awesome in its own right. Does the story progress in a straight line? No, absolutely not. Does the author provide the reader with answers to all unknowns? No, absolutely not after all a second book is being written. Is the book engaging, entertaining, and full of action?
Yes, yes, yes I, personally, think that this book was written with much planning and thought. The continuous change of point-of-view provided me with a greater in-depth understanding of the world I was reading about, the characters that were part of it, and the struggles that the Seekers were dealing with. Some of the readers could not understand who the Dreads were - well, if they would have finished reading the entire book and paid close attention to the details, that question would have been, at least partially, answered.
Patience in a good book is a critical requirement Usually, when I read a story, I like to guess what will happen next. Many times, my gut feelings are accurate and I can tell what's coming next. In this book, I thought I knew what was coming, but the ending had an amazing twist to it and threw me a curve ball in a few instances. I love being wrong about the ending of a book, especially when the ending comes at me with a positive outlook on the future. I can't wait to read the next book and to find out how the story progresses. This book is not an easy read, but if you are willing to take the challenge, I definitely recommend it.
I loved it! I'm pretty curious about how the author chose these two places because I cannot think of any other places that could have been more different. Story begins when Quin, her cousin Shinobu, and childhood friend John are in the middle of a fight. They have been training to take their oath as Seekers since young age and their whole life have been leading up to that moment. When John freezes up during training, Quin's dad sends him back. But one thing that he didn't know if that Quin and John have been in love for years and tried to keep their relationship away from the family.

This was interesting. One thing that I really wish was established in the book more is the explanation of what the Seeker really is. It slightly grazes over it but I really wish it would tell us more about it.
Third-person POV was good to read because we could see the different sides of the story and I really liked the characters. There was also some love-triangle going on. At some point you think that every one of character is a "villain" of the story and Quin goes between John and Shinobu. I understand how John could be in this but Shinobu was her cousin and I just thought that was a little weird.
Overall, this novel really turned out to be intense. I loved the story and cannot wait to see what happens next!
