Customer Review

VINE VOICEon December 1, 2011
"The Seer" is a worthy follow-up to Fred Warren's first novel, "The Muse." Fred is a great storyteller, and his skill is on full display here.

This time the focus is primarily on Stan (the hero from the first book), his daughter Hannah, and her new friend, Cassie. The first book had consequences that Stan and Hannah are still dealing with, which by definition makes the tone of this novel more poignant. Darker. Then there are those visions that Hannah is having...

"The Seer" was a lightning-fast read for me. There was always just enough action or intrigue to keep the pages turning. I had a similar experience with the first book. These stories really are like something you'd see on a fantasy version of "The Twilight Zone." Fast-paced and fun until the end.

The only criticism I have is that there were places in the book that could've used a bit more upfront description of the surroundings. (The ice rink comes to mind.) Just enough to turn the lights on for the reader. I also missed some of humor from the first book. Like I said, "The Seer" is a bit darker. I also understand that it probably had to be.

Overall, "The Seer" is another fun read from Mr. Warren. I'm looking forward to whatever comes next!
