This is a heart-wrenching, intelligent, elegant, trippy, bizarre, funny and amazing character-driven urban fantasy, starring otherworldly critters designed to drive an angry young Bostonian beat-poet to suicide. Whatever floats your boat, Seeded very probably contains it, and then some. Of all the books I've ever read, this is among the most original. And best written. And trippy. And in all of her books, no matter what's going on, Adrienne Jones always makes me cry when I least expect it.
Once again, Adrienne Jones snares us with an intriguing plot, blending our reality with realms just beyond in both threatening and compelling ways, so that I almost wish these beings did exist and I could meet them. Her other-worlds reflect the worst and best in our human lives, and as always her characters become strange friends we don't quite want to leave when the book is done.
Another very enjoyable and original read. Pure urban fantasy as opposed to science fiction or occult. She nails plot, pacing and particularly characterization in a fun tale which would appeal to a broad spectrum of readers. I look forward very much to her next work.
I thought for getting 5 stars from one reader it would be some good book, but I was disappointed almost at the start. Because suppose to be main character dies in first chapter and then story just goes from worse to horrible. Not recommendable.
