Dark Seeker

Dark Seeker - Taryn Browning I received this book from the author for review and I have already purchased the prequel and I can’t wait until the sequel is released. I really really liked this book. Certain elements of the story and the characters reminded me heavily of Buffy the Vampire Slayer which is, my all time favourite TV show. So of course I was going to love this book. There’s a lot going on in the book but not so much that it’s easy to get confused (I get confused easily, ok?). There’s a good balance of action and conflict and romance. Janie is not a simpering heroine who needs a guy to save her. She can save herself. Which is why she’s a great character, she’s independent and brave and knows her own mind. Kai is the kind of male character I enjoy reading, sarcastic and distant yet filled with emotion. The romance that happens between Janie and Kai was really well written. I hate in books when two people meet and instantly they’re together and they’re so in love. Kai and Janie both struggled with their growing feelings for each other which makes it more believable and relatable. I recommend this for fans of Buffy and for fans of YA fantasy.
