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.

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.

Author Heather Frost¿s debut novel does not disappoint. She takes her heroine out of the box by not having what's become the typical paranormal power. Sixteen year old Kate Bennett is a 'Seer', meaning she can visualize a person's aura. The aura gives the individual a glow-like presence in different colors depending on their mood. Kate acquired this talent after a near-fatal car accident that took the lives of both her parents, and left her near death. She's learned to keep her heightened vision a secret to all except her best friend Lee. Not even her boyfriend of a year, Aaron knows about Kate's new ability. On the first day of the school year, handsome and mysterious new student Patrick O'Donnell strikes a nerve with Kate she just can't let go. And one of the things that irks her; he's in ALL of her classes. Coincidence? She intends to find out. However, while she's learning who and what Patrick is, she's unable to deny her feelings towards the new guy that test her relationship with her long-time love for Aaron. After Kate learns Patrick's true intentions, she is thrown in for a tailspin as her family, friendships, and boyfriend all become part of a plot neither she or Patrick are able to handle on their own. The plot is well thought out, and written to visually allow the reader to experience what Kate see's. Every so often Patrick's P.O.V. is added and that always gets you bonus points with me. I enjoyed this book, and the ending teased at a sequel, so I hope that sees the light of day!

I enjoyed reading this fresh take on guardians and seers. It is different from the books that I have been reading recently. Guardians do not have wings, but they remain immortal.Kate is mourning for the loss of her parents in a car accident a few months prior to the start of the book. She almost lost her life as well. Her boyfriend feels that she should be over it and thinks the relationship should be where it was. Her best friend is a great bff. She is understanding and helpful. She is also so quirky that she keeps several scenes enjoyable.Kate has a new ability after the accident. She can see auras. She knows how people are feeling just by looking at them. She talked about it at first after the accident, and then learned to keep it to herself, so she wouldn't be viewed as crazy.Enter a young man into her class on the first day of school. He doesn't have an aura. This totally freaks her out. She saw another one earlier in the morning who she almost ran into. No one else could see the guy she almost hit with her car.Before you know it, Kate is sucked into a world of guardians and demons. Seers team up with Guardians to protect the world from the demons. She begins to question many aspects of her life and has some decisions to make. The decisions are not easy, but I like the choices that she makes.The romance is sweet and clean.

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!Galley provided by publisher for review.

¿Seers¿ was a nice surprise. I wasn¿t sure I was going to like it as much as I did, mainly because I struggled to get through the beginning (which does actually serve a purpose), but in the end I ended up enjoying this one quite a lot.The story is about Kate, a high school senior, who survives an accident that kills her parents. Ever since the accident, she¿s been able to see auras around people (everyone except for herself); she became a Seer. When a new boy shows up on the first day of school, Kate seems to be drawn to him, not knowing that Patrick is her Guardian. Together, Kate and Patrick must protect the living by seeking out demons. Yes, there is a love story in here as Kate and Patrick do end up developing feelings for one another, but it¿s not the story. It¿s more so a story about Kate dealing with the loss of her parents, the problems with her relationship with Aaron, and her struggle to understand her new `sight¿. I¿m really interested to know where the story will go from here. The ending of ¿Seers¿ left me wanting to know what¿ll happen next.Heather Frost has a wonderful writing style; everything flows quite nicely. The characters are excellent, especially Kate. This is a great young adult novel ¿ one you should definitely make time to check out.

Kate Bennet has been having a terrible year. A traumatic car accident results in both of her parents dying and the injuries she suffers cause her to see auras. She isn't quite sure what is going on but she knows it probably isn't good. Heather Frost explores Kate's new abilities in Seers.If being a teenager isn't bad enough, now Kate must deal with the notion that she truly isn't like everyone else. She also knows that the changes to her are making her relationship with her boyfriend Aaron worse. Aaron doesn't understand why she's so distant and she can't really explain it to him. Enter a new kid at school, Patrick. Kate knows he's different because his aura isn't like anyone else. She's also strangely attracted to him. Patrick just seems to understand her on so many levels. When he reveals that he's a "Guardian," basically a guardian angel, and that he's been sent to protect and guide her things start to make a little more sense. Patrick even warns her of the demons that want to use her abilities for nefarious means. Kate is torn between being loyal to Aaron and being true to herself. Kate is still coming to grips with the loss of her parents but Aaron seems to feel she has had months so her grief should be over. Kate knows that she no longer has romantic feelings for Aaron but isn¿t quite sure how to break things off. In addition, she and Patrick must also deal with the onslaught of demons in the area. Can Kate and Patrick save Kate's family and the town from the ongoing evil? Can they ever be more than friends? Why are the demons so interested in her abilities?Seers is fast-paced YA paranormal romance. Patrick and his friends aren't typical guardian angels, and it is perhaps this that makes for such an interesting read. Kate's family isn't perfect but they do appear to be rather normal in their abnormality. Kate's grandparents have moved in to raise Kate and her sisters. This scenario seems to follow along with modern society as family is no longer just parents raising children but might be grandparents raising grandchildren or aunts/uncles raising nieces and nephews, etc. Seers appears to be the first in a series so look for more from Kate and Patrick in the future.

I enjoyed this young adult novel and found it a good beach or rainy day read. It reminded me of The Body Finder series by Kimberly Derting though not as dark and the romance not as developed or engrossing, but similar storyline and depth of character development. I'll look for the sequel when it comes out.

When I first started this book, I thought that it would be filled with a lot of clichés, what with Kate having lost her parents and starting to see auras after a near-death experience. Then enter hot new Irish guy with a cute accent and a silver aura, someone that Kate finds herself running away from. It seems to be your typical dark-themed paranormal romance books, doesn¿t it?In many ways, Seers is typical of what we expect in today¿s YA novels. You have the annoying yet lovable younger sisters, the hot new guy (and romantic interest), bizarre things suddenly coming into your life, and a stubborn girl mourning the loss of family. I have to admit that sometimes I got fed up with Kate trying to get involved with demon hunting when Patrick knows what he's doing. At the same time, Patrick¿s Irish character spices the novel with his quaint sense of humor and reluctance to give in to his growing attraction to Kate. I especially loved movie time with him, Kate, and her sisters. Some of his actions seem bizarre when I see them through Kate¿s perspective, but when the novel switches to his point of view, it becomes apparent why he acts the way he does.I do like the idea of Guardians, Seers, and Demons. If you¿re looking for a new twist on angels and demons or something slightly more lighthearted than paranormal romances with angelic beings such as Hush, Hush and Fallen, try reading Seers.

I decided to check this book out after fellow reviewer recommended it. She thought it had some similarities with another book, one I haven't read but fully intend to, so I figured, let's see how our reviews differ. If having not read Evermore would effect having read Seer's. I liked the book. It was easy to get into and as soon as I turned the first page. I wanted to look more into Aura's just so I could get a better handle on the color's they described. I wanted to see if she kept with fact or not.The characters were easy to connect with, because, lets face it, who hasn't had a dreamy romance fantasy with a guy who has an irish brogue. I know I have. The emotion behind the main Character Kate was really well thought out and easily relatable.When you are in highschool with a secret, it is hard to juggle hiding it from your best friend while trying to balance a relationship you are not sure will work. I really enjoyed it and I am ready for the next installment of what I hope to be a series. I liked the twist that was put on Demon's. That you had to touch them first before they could touch you. The rule in place because they figure if you are going to touch a demon you are asking for it. It really was a unique take on things. Because in some ways I agree with it and others, brought up by the book, you can't help it because they stage it. I also didn't see it coming that the grandfather was a Seer himself.I ended up grinning when he came in and asked why the gaurdians where in their house and threw them all for a loop. That was pretty nifty that in the end as they have to save the twin girls, that it was a family affair so to speak. I was also a sucker for the happy ending, that is really a disaster waiting to happen. I don't know how Patrick is going to be able to handle watching her age and die, going to a place he can never go. I am sure Toni, my favorite character, will help him out with it though. After all, what are mischievous thief friend's for. Favorite Quote: "It's probably the only table in the whole school where everything you are isn't judged. You wear anything, say anything and no ones trying to measure you. They're just glad to have you"

I've heard lots of good things about Seers, and now that I've read it, I understand why. The concept was really cool - I've read books with characters that can see auras before, but it was different with Kate. She wasn't always whining about it, but you never forgot that she had the ability to see them. Her reactions to most things were realistic, though I wish she had been a little more wary about the idea of Seers and Guardians. I think she was a little too quick to believe that. I would have at least liked to see some doubt in her thoughts.Kate was actually a pretty awesome narrator. She didn't go off on too many tangents, she didn't distract me from what was going on. But she frustrated me sometimes. What did she see in Aaron? Maybe I only think that because I absolutely loved Patrick, or maybe because Kate's view on him wasn't that great all the time, either, since she was always thinking about Patrick, but I just never understood Kate and Aaron's relationship and why they were together. Sure, Aaron was sweet sometimes, but the rest of the time, he was just . . . boring. But Patrick. Oh, Patrick. I mean, he's Irish. That was enough to win me over. But I love how he's warring with himself - embracing the fact that he's a Guardian and trying to protect Kate, but at the same time, I think he's tired of it. Living forever doesn't seem that great when you actually have to live forever. The writing style is what got me. I have no idea how I felt about it. It was rather simple, really - not childish or full of mistakes or anything, just . . . simple. The style wasn't beautiful, but at the same time, it wasn't confusing. I didn't have to read sentences over a few times to understand them; it just didn't leave an impact on me.Overall: The characters were believable and I loved reading about Patrick and Kate and seeing their relationship grow, but it's the concept that I loved the most and how it was presented. The Seers and Guardians were something very interesting to me, and I loved getting to learn about that through Patrick's explanations to Kate. 4 stars.

3 out of 5SynopsisFor 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.ReviewFirstly I would like to say what a sterling book for a debut author and one so young.

My thoughts:Wonderfully written. Loved the characters. The world she has built for her characters has a variety of elements. The world that Kate lives in with her family and friends is solid and realistic, the author has captured the high school feel with accuracy. The world that Kate finds when she meets Patrick and Toni is something completely new. Her demon/guardian ideas are refreshing. I loved the idea that a person chooses at their death to either go on to heaven or to become a guardian. I wonder how she chose 25 as the perfect age, but it seems alright, but my favorite part of her heaven is that everyone gets to be with those that they have loved and lost. That children automatically go to heaven and get to go on being raised my their parents when they are all united again. It brings a smile to believe that her idea of heaven could be possible. I enjoyed all the characters. Kate is great. Toni makes me laugh. Lee is the best friend we either all have or if not, all want. Kate's sisters are typical and realistic, making me glad I not only am not a twin but don't have twins of my own. Aaron is that perfect boyfriend that you always hear about people having. Kate's grandparents are wonderful. But with all these characters, and those I didn't list, Patrick is by far and away my favorite character. He is "that" guy, the one we all dream about. The plot moves quickly. The story is fantastic. Kate's journey from a regular high school girl with a loving family, to an orphaned girl living with her sisters and her grandparents, to a member of a demon fighting team with special powers is a ride you don't want to miss. I will be waiting for the sequel!

Kate is starting her senior year different from last year. Her parents were killed in a car accident that she survied. Kate woke up in the hospital able to see auras around other people. After she realized everyone was treating her weirdly she faked getting over it. Kate could tell what the people around her was feeling because of the colors they had around them.Her best friend Lee was the only person she could tell about what she saw. Aaron was her boyfriend of a year but things are not the same, because she is not the same person. Her grandparents moved into the house to take care of her and her younger twin sisters. I really like Kate's grandpa.On the first day of school their is a new guy at school with only an outline of silver no other colors in his aura. Patrick and the weird thing he was in everyone of her classes, in fact he even joined eating lunch with her friends at the same table. Also on the way to school she almost ran over a guy who had the same silver aura but Lee could not see him. Kate was a little scared and confused about what she kept seeing.It is a very well told story and threw me some surprises I did not expect to come. I really want to read more about Kate and all her friends.I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review.

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 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, Reviewed by: Author Sherry Gammon

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.

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.
