I can't believe these are the first books Ms. Rozelle has written. They are amazing!!!! So much emotion it fills your heart to overflowing. I spent the last third of this book with tears in my eyes or falling down my face. Tears of sorrow and tears of happiness. This series is one of the best I've ever read in almost 50 years of reading. I bow to the story telling magic of Ms. Rozelle.

Electrifying dystopian survival - strap yourself in and get ready for a big dark ride
"Our memories serve a purpose - even the painful ones... and we hope to help history move forward."
A dark dystopia but akin and aligned to the thoughts and feelings of today, there is a lot of parallel between the hopes and dreams of the current day. Rozelle makes history herself by delivering to us a wholly satisfying narrative, one I would recommend to fans of sci-fi, horror, dystopian fantasy, and to all readers who are looking for a deep and rewarding read.
Rozelle closes her Treemakers trilogy with 'the Seeker's Keys' and it truly is the finale you want from this epic and grand adventure. This trilogy is big, it is a dystopian universe that is bleak bleak bleak, but there is hope, and there is a reason to fight, to succeed. It was with the classic cocktail of trepidation that I read the last book, but also with relief, joining the characters to get to the end. I didn't want it to end... but I'm glad there was resolution, conclusion, justice... closure!
Rozelle's writing is superb, I love her style, wit, and sympathy for so much disaster, whilst all the time moving the story forward with lightening precision, intrigue, and such depth. I highly recommend this whole trilogy, it sets a high standard for adventure fantasy, these books have the stature of Hollywood movie adaptions and wouldn't be out of place with anything you've seen from the blockbusters of the last decade... film-makers - I hope you're reading this! Highly recommend! Stop reading this review and if you haven't already - get reading this! - Martin Skate, Author of "Start Right Here"
What a perfect ending for the Treemakers' journey!
I've grown so attached to these characters over the last three books that this book was an emotional roller coaster. Though it's set in a dystopian future, Joy's journey and troubles are heartbreakingly real, and she won't get to the end of this without loss. The guidance from her father, Zephyr the Magnificent, comes full circle in a magical way. Aside from Joy, though, the other characters have grown on me and pulled on my heartstrings as well.... My favorite parts of this book were the ones where they become family, and how Joy and the other characters have grown and changed since the Treemakers book. They're stronger, but with that strength comes bigger challenges, but also love. There are some great messages of the importance of love as the bigger picture, and some heartbreaking sacrifices that go along with it. There are no loose ends, and everything comes together in the end, even with the possibility of more stories in the future. -Amy Bartelloni, Author of the "Andromeda Series"
What a conclusion!
Reading the first 2 books was heart wrenching. The things these poor kids have had to experience and live through, well that was just scratching the surface. In the Seekers Keys, we get a fantastically well laid out reminder of everything that went down already in the first two books. It never feels repetitive, but perfectly weaved into the story to help lead you where you need to go... A fantastic ending to an amazing series! I can't wait to sit down in the near future and read them all again from start to finish. - Cheree Castellanos, For Love of Books4
A beautiful ending that leaves you filled with Joy!
Like others I have found this book difficult to review, purely because it has been such an emotional journey that Joy and the tree makers, her family, have gone through. This, the last in the trilogy, was truly outstanding and reflects Ms Rozelle's growth as an author alongside her creation.
I ran the gamut of emotions reading this story. It is often harrowing, reading of the evil that the children have lived with in their short lives, though that is tempered by hope and love that is interwoven throughout. A beautiful ending that leaves you filled with Joy! - PJ Lea, reviewer
