It was another awesome book by Erin Hunter. Kallik and Yakone got back home to the Melting Sea where they belong. They are really happy to be home, but Toklo and Lusa are very sad because they know that they would have to leave them and travel to their homes without them. They know that they will probably have to say their goodbyes soon. On their way to where Kallik needs to go to see her brother Taqqik they meet some really mean and selfish bears that have been knocking down other bears dens ...more

This is kinda like the Warriors series, but with less romance in it. Well, Yakone thinks that he's a ladies bear, and he's not. But he's full on in love with Kallik! She is on a journey to find Taqqiq, her brother, and Yakone doesn't like him, but since he's in love with his sister, he's civil to him. And she doesn't know it! Why would he be in love with her? SHE TRIED TO KILL HER BROTHER!! And that makes good sense. He's bad, just like all the others! #AngerIssues #SiblingRivalry #Speechless ...more

I have no idea why am I still reading this series. Well maybe I know. How can I not know the fate of those amazing adorable cute bears!!!
The first book in the second series was a huge let down Nanulak idea was just terrible and too racist even for bears.
This one was good, it was Seekers standard even though the plot was way predictable and not to forget the amazing synopsis that tells what happens 70% of the book -_-
In my opinion the only good thing about Seekers now is the characters you jus

This was the first Seekers Book I read and totally loved it. In fact, I can't wait to read the next one. The bears were worried about how life would be after they all had split up, which taught them about family. Little slow at the beginning because it was basically just walking.
Reading this book made me want to finish the Warriors Series, read more of the
Seekers, and start reading Survivors. If you know anyone who likes bears or the Erin Hunter books, you should recommend this to them.

This was a very good book for the Seekers series. The plot was good and there were quite a few exciting parts. Mrs. Hunter kept me very entertained throughout the whole book, and I am just now beginning to truly love all of her characters.

I was very skeptical of the Seekers series at first because nothing can be as good as the Warriors series, but now that Warriors is coming to an end, I am glad that I still have Seekers to read and Survivors yet to come.

All in all, a very good instalment to th

When I was younger, I remember loving the "Seekers" series. Although they are not as captivating today, the stories are very well done. The Melting Sea expands your imagination, and I had a super large movie-picture in my head every second. I also am a fan of books where the point of view alternates between characters, as you can piece all of their individual stories and thoughts with and against each other. Overall, this book is not as good as the others, but still enjoyable.

The evil bears group challenges them to a battle. Taqqiq realises what he has done wrong and helps Kallik and her friends defeat the enemies

This book started out really slow for me, which is actually odd for this series. It didn't really pick up until the middle of the book. I'm beginning to think that the magic that was in the first arc is missing from this one. I'd like to see that integrated back in. I'm looking forward to the survivors series with the dogs that comes out this month.

Seekers is such an amazing book series. It also has a lot of emotional parts in it and the characters survive a lot of hardships enhancing the plot of the story.

It was fairly enjoyable. A bit confusing at first but overall a great book! I enjoy Warrior Cats more in all fairness.

I do like the characters of this series, and I like that I learned a lot about different kinds of bears. But I do not think I will continue reading this series.

In my opinion. This was the best book in the Seekers series. But the Seekers series does not compare to the Warriors series.
