    Yet Another Fantastic Read by Carmody

    The second book of the Obernewtyn series, Elspeth Gordie continues her journey to destroy the machines that created the Great White, a nuclear explosion that devastated the world. First, she must ensure the safety of Obernewtyn, a refuge for Misfits, people with special powers shunned and burned by the Council and fanatical Herder faction who have taken over. With the help of her Misfit friends, she sets out on a journey to seek a powerful Talent and a library of Beforetime books. Thrilling, action packed, with wonderful literary quips, Carmody uses her skill to create for us a post-nuclear world of adventure, mystery, and a new developement on the evolutionary chain.

    The Farseekers by Isobelle Carmody is the second book of The Obe

    The Farseekers by Isobelle Carmody is the second book of The Obernewtyn Chronicles. It was first published in 1990, three years after the first book Obernewtyn. That was back when books in a series weren't cranked out year after year. Readers nowadays are more impatient. Yes, that includes me!

    For me, The Farseekers was a good bit better than Obernewtyn. It's set two years after the end of the first book, Elspeth is now 17. Being older opens Elspeth's character to a lot more possibilities. All the characters in this book were better developed.

    I love the animals being sentient and how each animal has a distinct personality. It's true in real life (the personality part) and it's great to see it in the book. It's fascinating how the bonds form between the humans and the animals.

    The story pace picks up more in The Farseekers and is even more enjoyable to read.

    A Good Adventure

    Started the series with this book and now anxious to read the first. Hope the third comes out soon. This book may not be a classic but it is enjoyable to read and entertaining.

    A good read......

    I thought that this book, while not quite as good as the first one in this series(Obernewtyn) was very good writing.
