The Seeking, Marlena Frank

This is one of those stories you don’t want to put down once you start because Frank jumps right in on the storyline and starts building curiosity. I wasn’t quite sure what this “Seeking” was that they were talking about, but I needed to know. Though I admit, it sounded a bit milder than I was expecting, which was a relief, but then once we got down to it, nope, it wasn’t milder. In fact, I didn’t want to put the book down because I was worried for our main character.

I loved the paranormal elements with this one. The Gray People were highly imaginative, and you weren’t exactly sure what was at play here. I appreciated that the cast was relatively small, which made it easier to know the characters well. I also appreciated the representation in this one. Overall, a fun read from start to finish.

Read this review on Amazon, Goodreads, and Bookbub, give it a like while you’re there.

The Seeking is available on Amazon for $1.99.

Blurb:
Beware the Gray People

Each Seeking, the magic that protects the town of Carra must be renewed, which means the children of the Exalted Family must go into hiding. Whether it be through disguise or bribe, through trusted friends or perfect hiding places, every child of the Priest family must avoid capture for the full day.

When things go wrong with the renewal, it’s up to seventeen-year-old Dahlia, the middle child of the Priest family, and her girlfriend, Bisa, to escape Carra and find the magical beings responsible for the protection. They must learn who would require such a cruel game to be played every year and if the protection of the Gray People is really worth such a deadly cost. What they will discover is far worse.
