When was the last time you read a book and immediately wanted to to research about the characters?
I adore books like this. Fiction books based on real characters sprinkled with historical facts. The idea of a young rebel spy, hidden in plain sight, among fine society intrigued me. And as I finished the book I sat with tears in my eyes. This young lady was real! Rebel spy 355 took her life in her hands for what she believed was right. She risked everything for this country! I am amazed by this. I had no idea things like this happened!
Spying let me breathe again. It let the sunlight shine through the cracks, to reach the soul of me.The truth. The suffocating, hidden girl.
Veronica Rossi has a way with words that makes you feel as though you are living right along side them. This is a beautiful and inspiring YA standalone with a bit of romance swirled with intrigue. If you’re looking to feel inspired and motivated to make a change, then I highly recommend you grab this book and get ready for excitement.
I am in such a book fog right now. This book will definitely be in my top 10 of 2020!
A very adventurous and exciting story, filled with enough action to make even the most stubborn of readers get engaged. I know the teens are gonna love this.
Because this is the second book in the Riders duology, I don’t want to say anything spoilery. But what I can tell you is that this has to be one of favorite true YA series. My kids and I read the first book, Riders, right when it came out. Then I just did a relisten last week, with them listening every now and then, and all the excitement came back to me. In fact, my non reader son actually found ways to be in the same room as me so he could listen to the book, but not making it obvious that he was listening. The audible was very addicting. I found myself actually doing chores just so I could listen to it more. That, my friends, is a sign of a good book.
And my anti romance daughter was equally intrigued with this story as well. I’m always on the lookout for exciting YA books that aren’t completely centered around romance, and this one fit the bill as well. It enough to keep us both happy, and that’s a rarity.
Well, enough about Riders, now onto Seeker. Seeker takes place about 8 months after Riders end. The characters are trying to work past what happened and try to find a solution. Since they’re younger and less mature, they don’t always make the right decisions. They try and do things on their own, so save others from harm, but what they really need to do is work together. Once they realize this, then things start to fall into place. I’m not saying that nothing bad will happen, but it’s easier to deal with the bad, when you have your friends and family close by.
It’s very bittersweet to have this book end. I will miss these characters and I wish there were more books coming, but alas, there is not. But I am happy to see their trials complete and them still together and moving on as a family.
This series will be added to my master list of YA books and I have a feeling it will be recommended often.
