Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for the Seekers series: “Hunter creates a richly sensuous world filled with cruelty, beauty, tenderness, savagery and just enough underlying legendary background to add mystery…fans of animal fantasies will adore the careful attention to detail, and will haunt the shelves for the next volume.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“Told with an interesting balance of cute anthropomorphic characterization and realistic attention to bear behaviors and the brutalities of life in the wild, these stories will be welcomed by the Warriors series’ many fans.” (ALA Booklist)

“The suspenseful conclusion will build in an eager audience for the next installment.” (Publishers Weekly)

About the Author

Erin Hunter is inspired by a love of cats and a fascination with the ferocity of the natural world. In addition to having great respect for nature in all its forms, Erin enjoys creating rich mythical explanations for animal behavior.

Kallik is a young polar bear living in the frigid north with her mom and brother. She knows she has a lot to learn before she will be able to survive on her own. However, she isn't too worried as long as she has her mom to keep her safe and fed. But then comes the accident. Suddenly on her own, Kallik struggles to survive.

Lusa is a young black bear who has lived her entire life in a zoo. She hasn't had too many worries, as the fences keep her safe from predators, and the zoo keepers feed her every day. And then she makes a promise to a dying friend, a risky promise that requires her to escape the zoo fences. She cleverly manages to do just that. Suddenly on her own, Lusa struggles to survive.

Toklo is a young grizzly bear living near the mountains with his mom and sickly brother. When his brother dies, his mom is so overcome with grief, she chases Toklo away from her. Suddenly on his own, Toklo struggles to survive.

These three young bear cubs set out into the wilderness, meeting new challenges every day. Toklo finds himself paired up with an unusual companion, another grizzly cub named Ujurak, who possesses the amazing ability to change form into other animals. Ujurak also has the knack to receive directions from the spirits, and the spirits are guiding him on a quest. The two brown bears eventually cross paths with Lusa, who has been struggling to fulfill her promise. Lusa is thrilled to have finally found Toklo and can deliver the message that his mother really did love him. But Toklo struggles with the anger of abandonment and doesn't want to listen.

Now, suddenly without a purpose, Lusa tags along with the two brown bears, on their way to Great Bear Lake and the annual bear celebration of the Summer Equinox.

My 10-year old granddaughter really enjoyed this book when she found it in her school library. We read a few pages together and I found the writing to be magical.

Imagine reading about the private lives of wild bears. The author is engaging and captivating. We'll be ordering the complete series.

Oh my gosh! I thought this book was soo good. Even better than the last one. I liked the way the bears really start to connect and become more fond of each other.It was also interesting the way to get to meet all the other bears. Every bear helps save the day!

My son is using the Seekers series for his reading for Home School this year and though he doesn't love reading YET he is getting a love for it now as he gets to follow the trail through a series of book. Gives me hope that, some day, he'll be ready Sir Arthur Conan Doyle or, dare I hope, J.R.R. Tolkien :)

Hi, this is another book review from me, Matthew. I chose to rate this book five stars because Great Bear Lake is where the whole journey of the “four" bears starts. If you get this book you'll know why I put four in quotation marks. Also the book is just that great!

I really like everything about this book. There is just parts of the book that keeps you on your toes. Erin Hunter has done another outstandingly fantastic job!

I would recommend this book to everyone because it is that good.

So, that wraps up all I was going to say. Check out this book, I bet you will love it, and most of all, happy reading!

I love this book. It has amazing qualities to it that I think anyone would like. But, one thing that you need to note is that you need to read the first one first, which is also really good. I really didn't think this series was going to be great, but it really is amazing. Please read it! (Darn it, they have no bear Emojis😕)

This is the second book in the series my son is reading. He is one of those kids where if he isn't watching t.v. or playing baseball he is BORED and there is nothing to do ever. Well.... I finally got him hooked he read the first one, and I am happy to know the series continues. Also that there is more series. With the ups and downs of the book he is addicted... :)
