    Almost but not quite great

    Firstly I would like to say what a sterling book for a debut author and one so young. Heather Frost is only in her very early twenties but writes as though she has been at it for years. Her use of english and sentence structure is exemplory. The title of this book threw me. The book is called Seers yet as far as I could tell Kate, our main character, can only see auras which tell emotions. In history a Seer should be able to tell the future and the see back into the past so...I would have preferred another title. The story (unfortunately for me) starts off so similar to many other YA books i've read of late i.e.the book is based around the school scenario with the high school jock as a boyfriend, parents suddenly die, lots of grief and trauma, cute new guy shows up at same said school, turns out he's an absolute hottie, girl can't tear her eyes away from his piercing pools etc. Yeah, you know the drill. I forgot the 'woe is me' theme too. Then we have the ''confession''. Where cute boy tells damsel in distress that he's her Guardian. Here to save her life when it needs saving... Half way through the book I began to feel like this was STILL nothing new but I kept going to see if it would pick up. What held the book together for me was the narrative. Except there was far too much of it. Frost spent about 20 pages writing about how the character, Kate, feels about new boy Patrick. And it went on and on and on...I did skip lots of pages here while scanning still just to check I hadn't missed anything. The build up between Patrick and Kate is over half the book and personally just lost its edge and became dull with a hint of...JUST GET ON WITH IT... The actual story theme was okay but lacked any oommff and towards the edge it was all a little too nice and easy for a story plot. I probably won't read this book again but as I said in the beginning Heather Frost is an excellent writer. I just hope there's less narrative and more story in the next one.

    A Must Read!

    The author has created vivid characters you actually like. Even while wanting Kate to admit she's in love with her Guardian, you feel horrible for the boyfriend who's tried to be there for her through her parents' death. (Yes, he's a bit insensitive, but he's a teenage boy, what do you expect?) Seers had me laughing out loud, ready to cry, and unwilling to put it down. I'd have read it in one sitting if I could! Clearly set up for sequels, and I'm looking forward to them.

    Interesting spin on the whole angels and demons concept. Kate is

    Interesting spin on the whole angels and demons concept. Kate is an easy character to connect with. She’s strong, independent, and doesn’t give up. When a new guy shows up she doesn’t fall in love with him right away, which is a great change from the insta-love you see displayed so often in paranormal romance novels. A solid read. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Kate the "seer," was involved in an accident resulting

    Kate the "seer," was involved in an accident resulting in her ability to see auras of people, the good, the bad, and the ugly. It is a great story, with twists, turns, and, oh yeah, the best part: a cute guy named Patrick who is from Ireland...a long time ago. Yes, he is a supernatural, an angel to be exact. It is a fun, clean story, full of suspense, action...and some great kisses;}. Kate is strong and capable, able to fight her own battles. And battles she does fight! Can't wait to read the rest of the series.
    I enjoyed the story and I really liked the supporting cast, Kate's BFF Lee, her Twin sisters, an her awesome grandpa, also Patrick's mischievous friend Toni.
    The first chapter is about how Patrick came to 'be.' I have to say, I didn't like the chapter and almost deleted the book, but a friend recommend the story to me so I persevered. SO GLAD I DID!
    Heather is a talented author. I had no idea she was so young. WOW! Even more impressive. The writing is strong and the story is articulated well. I highly recommend this story.
    Congrats to a novice author,

    I received the second book in this series from Net Galley to rev

    I received the second book in this series from Net Galley to review, but I hadn't read this one yet, and I don't read out of order! So I put this one right to the top of my list, and I'm so glad I did!

    Blurb from Goodreads:

    For Kate Bennet, surviving the car wreck that killed her parents means big changes and even bigger problems. As she begins to see auras and invisible people, Kate must learn to trust Patrick O'Donnell, a handsome Guardian, or risk her life being overrun with Demons. She soon realizes that both she and her heart are in big-time trouble.

    Cover:
    I like the cover well enough. I actually don't think it does the story justice, to be honest. There is so much that could be done with the theme of the book. The color is beautiful, but I just don't get a sense of what the story is about at all. And even after having read the book, the cover doesn't make much sense to me. But it's still pretty, nonetheless.

    Characters:
    The characters in this book are very well developed. They definitely took on all their own personalities and it was easy to tell them all apart. I really was able to connect with them
    Kate, the main female character, really does strike me as an actual teenage girl. She is mourning the loss of her parents and you can totally feel that from her. I love how she grows through this book, really coming into herself, despite any fears she might face. And I love that she is so loyal to people, especially her boyfriend Aaron, despite the fact that she truly doesn't want to be with him anymore. She seems quite un-selfish and deeply cares for those she loves: her sisters, her grandparents, Aaron, Lee. She is strong and resilient, smart and quick.
    Patrick is just an awesome character. He's smart, funny and handsome, great qualities for a main male lead. I love how he is so protective of Kate and how he respects her wishes. Their connection is, of course, fairly immediate, but not quite insta-love, which is a nice change to see in a YA book. The author takes her time developing their relationship, letting them learn about one another
    Aaron just annoyed me. He cares for Kate, but at the same time comes off as being totally selfish, while she is so unselfish when it comes to him. Lee is just an awesome best friend. She gives Kate the space she needs while still supporting her. She also helps her realize the direction she needs to go when Kate is confused. Jenna and Josie, Kate's younger twiin sisters, are definitely those annoying younger sisters. Yet Kate tolerates them so well. They are cute with their bickering.
    Grandma is sweet and protective.
    Grandpa, well, he just rocks. He is very supportive of Kate and really helps her to try and make the best choices she can.
    And Toni, well, I just loved him. I think by far he is my favorite. He is so funny and quick witted. There was not way not to like him. Every interaction he has leaves you wanting more.
    The other ancillary characters are nice. They are essential to the story in the way they help Patrick and Kate. There is not really a need for them to be more well developed at this point, unless they are going to be re-introduced in a major role in future books. The evil characters were hard to gauge. I didn't get much of a sense of them or what exactly they were about. I did see that they were just evil, and that was enough for this part of the series.

    The Story line:
    I love the paranormal aspects of this story. I have not really read any stories with guardians and seers, so this was new for me. I like how they work together to get the "bad guys." And the plot was not compacted, so it was easy to follow.
    The pace of the story is nice. I found myself constantly wanting more and had a hard time putting it down when I had to do other things. There is just the right amount of action to sustain you until more happens. I like that it is not overpowering. I also loved how the author focused on growing the relationships between the characters. This seemed like such an important part of the story to me.
    The romance aspect of this story is very sweet. I love how Kate struggles with her feelings for Patrick, but really does understand what is right and what is not seeing as she has a boyfriend already. Again, they take their time getting to know one another and let their feelings for each other grow.
    One of the things that I disliked was how the author used POV in this book. It was not consistent. When the POV changed, it took me a bit to realize that it was a different character talking. I would have preferred more from Patrick's POV, as well. I'm not sure if we'll see that in the next book or not, but that would be nice. Perhaps chapter sub-headings would have helped me with this confusion. Certainly there is not necessarily the need to alternate each chapter with different POVs, but I just felt like that aspect of the story telling was lacking.

    I commend the author on her storytelling. The language of the book was very good and not confusing at all. It flowed well from one sentence to the next. She did not overuse words or make you feel like she was trying to use words just to "beef" the story up. The story did not need that, anyway. The writing of this book does not make me think it was Frost's debut novel. She has a wonderful command of the English language.

    I am looking forward to reading the next installment in this series! 4 out of 5 stars from me.

    Written Very well - a must read!

    For those who like/love fiction, this is a very well written book. It will keep your attention from start to finish. When you finish you are wishing the the second book was already published because you want to know what is going to happen to the characters. Heather has done a very good job for being a first-time writer.

    Fun read!

    I enjoyed Seers. It is a story about a girl named Kate who has a near death experience that gives her the power of a Seer, which means she can see auras. This helps her identify Guardians and Demons, and pulls her into some dangerous situations. The characters were relate-able and interesting. I liked the romance story line and enjoyed the writing style. I'm still confused about the motives of the Demons and why they are interested in Kate in particular. I guess more answers will come with the rest of the books in the series.

    Boring!!

    Summary:
    For Kate Bennett, surviving the car wreck that killed her parents means big changes - and even bigger problems. As she begins to see auras and invisible people, Kate must learn to trust Patrick O'Donnell, a handsome Guardian, or risk her life being overrun with Demons. She soon realizes that both she and her heart are in big-time trouble.

    Review:
    This book was a real challenge to finish. One of those books that I had to constantly force myself to go back to rather than move on to another book. It wasn't that it was really awful either, just..boring! The plot while somewhat original in the paranormal genre, just dragged along. The writing wasn't awful, but nothing to write home about, just dry. I didn't like or connect with any of the characters. Kate, our heroine, was annoying, whiny and just plain unlikeable. Patrick, our hero, when first introduced was just kind of creepy and I couldn't shake that feeling for him for the rest of the novel. And ZERO chemistry between the two of them! I had no idea why they had any feelings for each other at all, and by the end I'm supposed to believe they're in love?? NOT! The side characters were all pretty much annoying as well. We have the "sidekick" Tony, who is one of those characters that's supposed to be oh so funny and I didn't even chuckle..sorry. The female villain is so over the top ridiculous that I could imagine her doing the Wicked Witch of the East laugh/cackle. And then there's Grandpa, who towards the end has a surprise reveal. SO lame, unrealistic and predicitable. I'm afraid I just did not enjoy this book at all and couldn't care less what happens in future books..done with this series.

    It was OK

    Goodreads describes this book as:

    For Kate Bennett, surviving the car wreck that killed her parents means big changes - and even bigger problems. As she begins to see auras and invisible people, Kate must learn to trust Patrick O'Donnell, a handsome Guardian, or risk her life being overrun with Demons. She soon realizes that both she and her heart are in big-time trouble.

    The Good: Descriptions are well thought out and written, characters are strong and well depicted. The difference between the Gaurdians and Demons is well explained. Kate sounds like a typical teenager for the most part.

    The Bad: The story has about 100 extra pages in it which bogged down the storyline. It took way too long to develop the story between Kate and Patrick. This reader had difficulty keeping interested in what was going on because the story seemed to drag on endlessly.

    Should there be a sequel as the ending suggests, I will not be reading it. This book gets a C.

    Loved It!

    Kate's special for all the wrong reasons. She survived a car crash that killed her parents, and she has had guilt and sadness with her ever since. The real problem though comes in a much more supernatural form. Kate can now see auras. Her world is full of rainbows of emotions. If that's not enough, her relationship with her perfect boyfriend has gone stale. When a dashing new boy joins her classes, Kate notices something different about him. More specifically, she notices something different about his aura. Kate soon learns that her ability has put her in a special position as a "seer," one who can choose to help Guardians or Demons. However, it looks like someone wants to make that choice for her. It will take all that Kate has to take care of otherworldly business and still get home in time for the formal.


    I loved this book! It grabbed my attention from the start and never let it go. Kate is an awesome character. I think she could easily have become this person who dwelled too much on everything that was wrong in her life and all her tragedies, but she didn't. She was strong and fierce. Patrick was also interesting. I wanted to know more about his past. I could keep talking about each character I loved, but this would be a long review then. I can't leave out Kate's Grandpa though. What a fun person! You just know that being with her Grandpa, Kate felt loved and safe.I highly recommend this book. It has action and romance. It feel fresh. I did not want to put the book down. It is a fast and super fun read. This book will draw you in and make you forget about everything but what's happening to Kate and her crew. I definitely hope to read more about them!

    A great book

    So how do I explain this well... lets start from the beginning right? So when I heard about this book I realized I had read something similar sometime ago, well honestly the summary was similar but that's where the similarities end. This book was really good, I loved the prologue as we get to know Patrick before he becomes a guardian, and I think that was a really good twist. After the prologue we jump forward in time (a longggg time) and we meet Kate who is preparing for her first day at school with her best friend Lee, who by the way is amazing and sounds a bit like me on a coffee or chocolate rush :) and her boyfriend who is likable but plain (sometimes plain is good believe me) we also get to meet Kate's grandparents, I love grandpa and I was soo surprised when... well you'll see and her twin sisters, who are adorable and funny. And we also meet however briefly Toni immature and unique in his own way, and finally Patrick the new guy at school (enters the hotness) I really liked this book because although there is a love story (really what did you expect?) It's not the main part of the story, more like a secondary one, the main part is how Kate is adjusting to seeing auras (get it? She sees so she's a seer? Okay totally obvious) and the fight in between guardians and demons for her because she's special. In the end I felt pretty bad for Aaron but well I knew it was going to happen. And the book leaves us with a cliffhanger (darn I hate those) I can't wait for the next one :) And the demons? They were great, one of them he is so mafia like I could imagine him there looking all bad ass and everything :)
