The silent tension caused Gem to bite her lip. She tucked a loose strand of auburn hair behind her ear and shifted uneasily in the chair. Wide-eyed, Gryff sat stiffly beside her, regarding the envelope. He was like a statue-hands on his knees-staring interminably at the table.

Overview

Gryff's orders lay unopened on the table.

The silent tension caused Gem to bite her lip. She tucked a loose strand of auburn hair behind her ear and shifted uneasily in the chair. Wide-eyed, Gryff sat stiffly beside her, regarding the envelope. He was like a statue-hands on his knees-staring interminably at the table.

Finally, Gem cleared her throat. Gryff jolted as if in a daze and turned to look at her. A look of uncertainty hung in his eyes. She swallowed the dry, sticky taste in her mouth and reached for his hand. It felt cold...clammy. Gem could feel the faint tremor of his fear radiating through his fingers. She took Gryff's hand between her own and squeezed, trying to infuse heat and reassurance at the same time.

"Sometimes they come back," Gem's voice was barely a whisper. It was a feeble attempt, but she was grasping at straws here.

Everyone knows.

They don't come back. Never whole, anyway.

Leah Sanders knocks it out of the park with her novel, All We See Or Seem. From the very first page, Sanders keeps you guessing with a book that borders between Sci Fi and Dystopian. Gem and Gryff are Stems, and when Gryff is taken away, Gem’s sure she’ll never see him again. After all, no one who’s left has ever returned. So now Gem must keep it together or else, who knows what may happen to her. The maniacal scientists who run the place are keeping a close eye on her, something that doesn’t necessarily bode well for her future. But there’s always hope.  From the beginning, I loved the characters and throughout I kept rooting for them to pull through and do something fantastic. With several twists and turns along the way, Sanders had me turning pages all through the night. I can’t wait for the sequel.

From the opening scene I could not put the book down. Great plot twists. (I would say a lot more about that but I don't want to spoil it). I loved the subtle references throughout the book that you understood more as the story progressed. I thought it was very well written.
