Overview

Seer Of Souls (Book One of The Spirit Shield Saga) by Susan Faw

This piece is incredibly well-written. The vivid exposition and intrigue, engaging plot design and heightened stakes all exposed in the opening chapter acted as clear evidence to the writer's skillful abilities in the fantasy genre. This narrative felt as though it had the potential to reach the heights of an epic fantasy series like LORD OF THE RINGS while at the same time adding something new and fresh in the midst of familiar tones and fantasy elements. - Book Pipeline Competition

This is turning out to be a story worth reading. Enjoyed the development of a Cayden Tiernan. He promises to be a strong character. I look forward to reading about his sister Avery in future books. If you like fantasy adventure I strongly recommend you read this series!

Reviewed by Lit Amri for Readers' Favorite Seer of Souls (The Spirit Shield Saga, Book One) by Susan Faw opens with Mordecai the wizard saving the souls of two infants from the poison that killed their mother, Princess Gwendolyn. They are born again and live as twins, Cayden and Avery Tiernan, in a little village called Sanctuary by the Sea. Both possess magical talents which they keep hidden from the public, as magic in any form has been outlawed by the ruthless Queen Alcina, who sends regular patrols to scour the kingdom for signs of its use. Alcina also constantly recruits soldiers as the war between the Kingdom of Cathair and the Primordial is escalating. Faw’s Seer of Souls has the classic theme of prophesied individuals who will be the key to preventing the destruction of their world. Fantasy fans will like the intricate world building as well as the plot. No fantasy world is complete without ethereal beings. The Primordials are elf-like people with magical abilities. There are also spirit guardians, demons, and others. Faw’s prose is easy to read and not laden with heavy terms, which some fantasy novels tend to favor. All the characters are well developed and the Primordial seeker, Ziona Aspenwood, is my favorite. That said, Avery Tiernan’s role is slightly secondary to her twin in Book One, as the plot mostly centers on Cayden and his journey in discovering more about his power and his past. All the same, I have no doubt that Avery will shine more in the next book and I look forward to it.

Words fail me with this story,almost. As I read this I gave constant update to the author that I was so enjoying the journey. I felt at one with the characters and can honestly say I haven't enjoyed a book as much as this one for quite a while. The storyline was easy to follow and for me I felt the emotions of the main character as he discovered his true self. It was truly a magical story in all senses of the word.A wonderful fantasy tale at its very best. by LooseBoots

Cayden and Avery Tiernan are the last of the legitimate royal family and heirs to the throne, unknown to themselves, they are born and sent away by magic just as their mother is dying from being poisoned. At around the age of 16, Cayden and Avery's powers are starting to manifest, they have people watching them, that are not allowed to interfere as the twins need to learn about their unusual abilities on their own. With the Queen on a quest to stomp out the one's prophesied to depose her, and anyone else who has magical abilities. Her troops come to the town where they grew up, and at the death of a Queens Guard, Cayden leaves in order to save the town. His sister leaves separately and they soon find themselves on quest of their own, unwillingly being drawn into their destiny, using their special gifts, they go from one adventure to the next. Are they able to succeed in coming into their own legacies, or does Alcidia get the last laugh, and retain the throne? Susan Faw wrote a fun YA adventure that is very fast paced, has strong characters, and a solid plot with many twist, and a few laughs that has you rooting for the underdogs the entire journey. If you like Micheal Stackpole, you will probably like this story also.

The story was decent but I felt it lacked imagination. Parts were reminiscent of Harry Potter, the Bible and other stories.

My only complaint is that I can't put it down when I need to be doing something else. The characters are well developed and I feel as if I know them. Can't wait to read the rest of the series.

I was hoping to see a lot of twin bonding, But that was like one whole page of it. I didn't like it it was all about the brother the sister didn't even come up only in the beginning and that was nothing. It's a really fast pace book and mostly about them just getting ready for a fight but not alot of action. It was a boring book for me. I was mostly looking forward to the sibling twin bond but there wasn't none.
