The other viewer must have not read the description properly.

"New from acclaimed fantasy author Isobelle Carmody comes The Seeker, an omnibus edition of the first two books in the dystopian fantasy the Obernewtyn Chronicles--Obernewtyn and The Farseekers!"

Although the first word is new it does state that it contains the first two books in one.

This makes for a nice sized book. I previously owned the first two separately and they were quite small. I like my books to have a bit more volume and its nice to be able to carry around the one book and be able to move right to the second without having to go find it.

As for a review of the books themselves just go read the separate reviews for the first two books ;) excellent books that I am rereading before the release of the new one.

Isobelle Carmody started writing this series when she was only fourteen and it just blows my mind away how creative it is. The story line throughout the books is so complex and mysterious that it will leave you breathless. Make sure to read the whole series, Obernewtyn, The Farseekers, Ashling, The Keeping Place, (Wavesong U.S. only) The Stone Key, The Sending (not currently available in the U.S. and the last book in the series which will be released next year, The Red Queen. This books are truly inspirational and teach young girls to be strong. Thank you Isobelle for writing and inspiring me through hard times in my life.

This one is the first two books put together. Obernewtyn and The Farseekers.

I'm purchasing the whole series after reading borrowed copies a decade ago. I felt the need to reread and since hard copies are cheaper than digital ones, I went for it.

Isobelle Carmody is a magnificent fantasy writer and Obernewtyn Chronicles is my all time favourite series. Having read them as a teenager I have such fond memories it is time I read them again.

I saw a new title "The Seeker" in the Obernewtyn series. After I bought it I dicovered that it is not a new book only the first two books under a new title. Needless to say, I am very disappointed.

More About the Author

I am an Australian writer of science fiction, fantasy, children's and juvenile literature. I divide my time between a home on the Great Ocean Road in Australia and my travels abroad. I began work on the Obernewtyn Chronicles when I was fourteen years old. I continued to work on these while completing a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in literature and philosophy, followed by a cadetship in journalism. The first two books in the Obernewtyn series were short listed for the CBC Children's Book of the Year in the Older Readers category; My third book Scatterlings won Talking book of the Year. My fourth book The Gathering was a joint winner of the 1993 CBC Book of the Year Award and the 1994 Children's Literature Peace Prize. Another book, Greylands, won an Aurealis Award and a White Raven at Bologna Book Fair while Billy Thunder and the Night Gate was shortlisted for the Patricia Wrightson Prize for Children's Literature in the 2001 NSW Premier's Literary Awards. Both Little Fur and A Fox Called Sorrow received BAAFTA Industry Awards for design. Alyzon Whitestarr won the coveted Golden Aurealis for overall best novel at the Aurealis Awards. Nan Mc Nabb and were the participating editor of a two book collection of stories titled respectively The Wilful Eye and The Wicked Wood, released in 2011. My recent book The Red Wind won Book of the Year. My latest book is a collection of critically acclaimed stories called Metro Winds, and I am currently working on the final book in the Obernewtyn Chronicles, The Red Queen and another book, The Cloud Road.
