Frequently bought together
5-Stars! "in many ways, a typical sword and sorcery tale" "It was a little wittier than the usual tale in this genre" "The Seer has a serious, complicated plot, but it is not mind-numbingly dramatic. JD Stanley handles telling the story by using a deft sense of balance"
"Princess Briget, Bronan, even Barry, all were made more believable by JD Stanley's expert way of using wit and irony to tell a story." "I don't see how the story could have been moved along any better. I like magic and mayhem. I like characters who are complicated. That is why I loved The Seer." - Ray Simmons for Readers' Favorite Book Reviews and Award Contest
From the Author
The Seer was great fun for me to write, because I've been fascinated with Druids since childhood. It became a playground through which to explore a small corner of their world. Being a history junkie, I was perfectly happy to wallow around in 4th century Britain, as well. Though, to be honest? I lingered in it a lot longer than I should have before I made myself show the rest of the world. I selfishly didn't want to let anyone else in.
I love the way the Bronan character came out. Magical and powerful he might be, but he's just a regular guy underneath with insecurities who trips over his own bad decisions like the rest of us. Being a hero is tough, and being a hero when you're a fallible, regular guy is even more of a challenge. Then again, the squeaky clean guys are just odd if you ask me. Give me a regular guy who will overcome life's hurdles and still come out on top any day.
Sir William Robert is probably my hands-down favourite for regular guys in the hero's circle of friends in this story. He's tough, dependable and gets shit done. If he was a real person? He'd be that friend you call at 3am who would be out the door to have your back without judging you no matter what dumb mess you got yourself into. We'd probably head out for a beer on a Friday night.
The Seer is a very different story from my first book, Blood Runner. They're both about the hero's journey - grudging as it often is, while they drag their feet until they must save the day - but there are no vampires in this one. It's a more challenging read, written formally with a light application of Shakespearean-eque English and some court-speak by the royalty. If you enjoy stories about knights and kingdoms in peril and upholding honour, you may find The Seer of interest. It does contain some violence, so I wouldn't recommend it for younger readers as it's definitely out of the YA band.
