From the Back Cover

Is fate pulling them apart?

Toklo, Kallik, Lusa, and Yakone trek onward toward the Melting Sea, battling the elements and struggling to move quickly as the ice begins to thaw. Kallik is anxious to reunite with her brother, Taqqiq, and the rest of the bears at her old home—but Toklo and Lusa can't imagine continuing their journey without her.

As they cross the Melting Sea, the foursome encounters Shila, an injured white bear who tells them that a vicious gang of bears is terrorizing others for food and land. Kallik is horrified to discover that her brother has joined these fierce bears. Can the Seeker bears convince Taqqiq to come back to the right side?

The future of the close-knit team is uncertain. As the bears face separating for the first time since their quest began, they struggle with the difficult choice between returning home or remaining with the companions who have become their true family.

Great book. I'm starting to wonder if the bears will ever go their own separate ways. It doesn't seem like it. I guess they will wander forever? Next book will be available on Jan, 8, 2013. Can't wait!

As the Seeker bears puts the events of the previous book behind them, they continue the journey to The Melting Sea, Kallik the polar bear`s birthplace. Kallik is very eager to see her brother Taqqiq again, but Lusa, the black bear fears that Kallik may leave the group sooner or later. After avoiding humans along the way, they finally arrives to their destination. However, things are not what Kallik hoped for. They hear rumors of a group of polar bears that bully other bears and that Taqqiq is one of them. I really liked this book. I recoomend this for all Seeker fans.

Format: Hardcover
Kallik, Lusa, Yakone and Toklo are nearing the end of their long journey, but it looms bittersweet. All four bears dread the thought of splitting up and having to say farewell. They would love to stay together, but they belong on the ice, while the black and brown bears belong in the forest. They are getting very close to Kallik's original home, The Melting Sea, and she can't wait to show her home to her fellow polar bear, Yakone. She's even more excited to find her brother, Taqqiq.

However, their homecoming is tarnished by the invasion of even more humans. The bears have trouble traversing the miles of roads with their smelly, oily cars and the mazes of human neighborhoods. They also encounter more helicopters transporting drugged polar bears, and even find the compound that had held Kallik prisoner many months before.

But that's not all of the bad news. Every polar bear they encounter says the same thing: the Melting Sea is melting too early. Food is scarce, and the white bears are in danger of starving. Our four heroes have received many helping paws on their long journey, and now they find themselves in the position to return the favor and come to the aid of others. They take time to teach other bears how to hunt on land, fish in streams, and even find the plants that Lusa likes to eat. It's a foreign way to live for the polar bears, but they must make changes in order to survive the changing environment.

Then, at last, our four heroes arrive at the Melting Sea, and before too long, they run into Kallik's brother, Taqqiq. But the reunion is not a happy one. Taqqiq has rejoined the gang of bullies, and they are terrorizing the other bears more than ever.

My 9 year old can't get enough of these stories. He loves the details and the stories full of self-determination; they describe the reality of the crude and difficult world of a group of bears across hardship and friendship. They are not fairy tales, but reflection on how difficult life can be against the elements. There is lot awareness and positive growth coming out of this.

This is an amazing book. This a spine tingling and very exciting book. I adore the seekers series. I have read all of the books in both series except these last two that I know I will enjoy. (I cried at the end of this book @_@ ).
