The Seer was a 16 year old ordinary in love with a an extraordinary when she dies in a fire during a headon collision and transformed into a Seer. I loved this story and it's detailed explanation of magic, witches, demons, etc. If your interested in druids, Celtic myths and Ireland you will love this story.
This is a cliffhanger.
Due to my ignorance of the mythos, I struggled some in the beginning to understand some of what was going on and who people were. However, the characters and plot were so engaging I had to keep reading! It is a short book and about halfway through, the story really took off for me – very exciting and unique. Author Marx has really built a world around Salem, Ireland, and the witchy denizens of both. To assist readers, the author begins each chapter with a brief description of one or two of the beings that will be appearing in the following pages. In addition, she provides an excellent and comprehensive guide to the Celtic beings, with illustrations, at the end of the book. (This was a little awkward to access on my ereader but I can imagine in a physical book this would get some good use!)
The work itself does suffer from typos and incorrect or odd word choices. And there appeared to be a misidentification of a character’s name early in the book which caused me some confusion later. But I was able to sort all that out on my own. However, I liked the story so much that I went ahead and obtained All’s Fair in Vanity’s War by the same author – a continuation of this story – and the writing and editing are excellent so far.
I do recommend this for those readers that enjoy and are familiar with the Celtic myths and witch stories.
I especially liked the section on definitions for various things associated with Irish folklore.
Since the book was just an introduction the full length version, All's Fair in Vanity's War (The Seer's Seven Deadly Fairy Tales) by Elizabeth Marx, it served its purpose. It captured my imagination and now I look forward to reading the entire book.
I recommend this book to capture your imagination.
