Seers by Heather Frost
On the inside cover:
"Guardians hunt Demons. Demons hunt Humans. Seers are Haunted by both.
When Kate Bennett survived the horrific car accident that claimed her parents' lives, her world would be forever changed in ways she never could have imagined. Feeling like a freak, Kate tries to hide her unwelcome new ability to see people's auras- that is, until she meets Patrick O'Donnell, who seems to be able to disappear at will. When Kate and her family begin to be haunted by Demons, her only hope is to stay close to Patrick and other Guardians like him.
Caught up in a war she barely understands, with enemies only she can discern, Kate quickly learns that in war, everybody loses something or someone."
WOW! What an amazing debut for Heather Frost. I cannot believe how well written and intriguing this book is. From start to finish I could not put it down. The characters are believable and lovable, I felt for them the whole story through.
The romance is perfect. Not gushy and so well written!
"My eyes fell on the newcomer, standing almost awkwardly in the open doorway. A broad shoulder kept the door propped open, and a long-fingered hand curled around one strap of his bag, keeping it from sliding off his shoulder. He wore a light blue button-up shirt, sleeves rolled to the elbows. He had beautiful skin- not white, but definitely not tanned. His eyes were pure blue, and surprisingly penetrating. His jaw was perfectly sculpted, and his high cheekbones were prominent and strong. His nose was long, and dark brown hair curled onto his forehead. His pale-but-not-pale skin was covered with a very light dusting of freckles."
Our main character "Kate" notices all of this while sitting next to her boyfriend, Aaron. "I could feel Aaron's eyes on my face, though, and I knew I needed to stop openly appreciating the new guy."
Just love this book! A new favorite for sure!
I am so bummed that I just realized this book was written in 2011 which means I have no idea when the next one will come out. It is a trilogy. All I can say is, "PLEASE HURRY!"
Seers definitely gets five stars from me!
