If you wrote a book which included characters who speak another language, would you want to make sure the phrases you wrote were accurate?
How about if you were an editor or publisher? Would you care about accurate translations?

It was kind of a nice idea to have this book in Hunter's POV (although the Sweep series is getting progressively worse--all "tell" and no "show") but the insistence on using "french" was excruciating. Auto-translate did BETTER, actually, than the author, when I checked i

I had to update my rating for this installment of the Wicca series. I have only read Seeker once before, so my knowledge of the events that took place was particularly fuzzy. All I remembered was that it was the first book in the series to be narrated by someone other than Morgan Rowlands, this time by her boyfriend Hunter Niall. I love Hunter's character, but I also love Morgan's narration and its blend of the familiar and the unfamiliar, so for some reason I took this to mean that I did not en ...more

I'll admit that I had the same problem as some of the other readers did- it was a little strange to see the point of view shift from Morgan to Hunter. Part of me kept wanting to see it from Morgan's POV, although after a while I managed to get into his way of speaking & thinking.

This entry into the Sweep series has Hunter finally traveling to meet up with his parents after their abrupt departure about eleven years before. When he finally finds their home, Hunter is shocked at what he finds.

I was so much happier with this book than the previous one! The tension feels so much more different hearing it in someone else's point of view. And oh, how I love Hunter.

He seems so much more composed in Morgan's eyes. But then you hear his thought process and he's EVERYWHERE. And hilarious! The first couple scenes where he and Morgan are alone are great. You'd never guess that Hunter is dirty, male gender aside. Who knew he could make a perverted joke and be some awkward, yet passionate in his

A breath of fresh air with a new point of view. I'm glad Cate Tiernan decided to do this. Morgan's POV was getting kind of boring. Plus, I was getting a bit curious about Hunter's life as a Seeker, given he spends all of his time in Widow's Vale.

I liked that Morgan was still present through her Book of Shadows, her entries were great and gave insight on what was happening in Widow's Vale with her family.

Quite interesting what Hunter finds thats left of his dad and the adventure he finds as he s

It was very easy to read, but because I read book 10 without reading book 1 - through to 9 there was some backward knowledge that I was missing. This book does have a few sections which is (I think) written in french, so if you have a french dictionary handy then one particular chapter will make more sense to you than it did for me. However I understand that maybe the writer did this on purpose so the reader is felling the same frustration as the character is when he is struggling to understand ...more

Hunter Niall's parents disappeared eleven years ago, trying to save their children and outrun a mystical dark wave. Hunter was left with a lot of unanswered questions and has been looking for his parents for years. Now he has finally tracked his family down and he is travelling to Canada in search of answers. But all is not as Hunter expects and soon he finds himself with more questions than ever before, questions that place his dedication to the International Council of Witches in doubt.

The book Seeker by Cate Tiernan is the ninth book to the sweep collection. Its a fiction series that is about a girl discovering she is a blood witch. In this book it switches to Hunters piont of view, were he goes to find his parents. What he finds is not what he thought it wud be. It turns out his mother is died and his fatheris good as died. Its like its not him he jst stuck in that boby. While tring to help and keep his dad alive he ends up making a huge mistake that in the end might cost hi ...more

Today's review is on Seeker by: Cate Tiernan


Seeker is the 10th book in Cate Tiernan's Sweep series, and was both interesting and a bit boring.


Seeker is the first book in the series that is narrated by Hunter. In Strife, Hunter receives information leading to the location of his parents, who he hasn't seen in 11 years. In Seeker, he decides that her has to take the chance to find them. Though he asks Morgan to come with him, she is still working hard to improve her grades in school and besides th

I know that I have missed one book of the series which is really annoying, but unfortunately the library does not seem to have it which really does not make sense at all, but thats the way the library works I suppose. However, it was nice to read a book based around another characters lifestyle because its nice to see something from their perspective. In many respects though, it seems that we are now onto the like side series, where we do read about the other characters lives. Hunter is an inter ...more

I have enjoyed the Sweep series. Seeker was taken from Hunter's POV. This is a great insight into his character. He faces the hard decision about finding his parents. The counsel lets him know where they might be. The goodbye scene between Hunter and Morgan was a heart jerker. I really felt for Morgan, even though it was in Hunter's pov.

He travel's to Quebec, Canada to find his father. When he finds him, his idea of what he would look like and what he actually looks like is greatly different. H

WHAT THE FRAK HUNTER??!??!?

Ok, ma crise étant passée, j'ai bien aimé ce livre, en particulier le fait que Hunter se retrouve au Québec et malgré le fait que l'auteure a voulu mettre des conversations (ou plutôt des courtes phrases) en français, elle aurait pu se faire aider de quelqu'un qui parle et écrit correctement le français.

Le dixième tome est du point de vue de Hunter, fait qui change complètement la donne puisque les autres tomes étaient du point de vue de Morgan. Ça a été un peu perturb

While this was still a good addition to the series it was a little different because it was told from Hunter's point of view and had little mention even of Morgan.
Hunter leaves Widows Vale to find his father who he has not seen since he was 8 (his father and mother left running from the dark wave). The Council has finally given him an address for him and he is looking forward to seeing both his parents. However, wehn he gets there he makes several upsetting discoveries. First, his mother died 3

This book broke my heart! We see the lengths that people will go for love. Seeing Hunter's father completely broken after his wife's death was devastating, and the fact that he would raise the dead just to speak to her, even after she told him it was hurting her was heartbreaking.
I'm not too sure what I thought of the storyline with Justine. Although I liked the ided of a member of the Rowanwand clan showing signs of darkness. Again it brings back to David's explanation in Awakening about the wo

The tenth book of the Sweep series is written from another perspective- Hunter's perspective. It's was quite intriguing to hear things through Hunter's insight. I found it quite entertaining to learn that Hunter isn't as sure and centered as Morgan sees him. In the previous books, Hunter is reserved and dignified, but in this book, you get to see a side of Hunter that no one else sees. It's refreshing as it's enticing. The suffering that Hunter goes through after discovering his father is heart- ...more

I read this book in one day, as I usually do with books like these and it was overall great, but boring in some parts.

I particularly loved how it was in Hunter's pov instead of Morgan's, that made it much more interesting to read because I could see how attracted he was to Morgan(and his constant remarks about her ruggedness...lol) and made me appreciate their relationship more even though in my head I'm Cal and Morgan forever and I'll stop hoping that Tiernan would kill him off and magickally b

I loved this book. I loved that you get some perspective from Hunter. Because as Morgan says Hunter is so very Brittish. He does not tend to share his inner thoughts or feelings. My heart broke for his finding his father. Was annoyed at Justine. I am looking forward to the next book. I have always pulled for Hunter. But that Justine mess made me mad.

I have to say that I really enjoyed this installment in the "Sweep" series. It was refreshing to hear the story from another character's point of view, aside from in various Books of Shadows entries. You may think that Hunter is all business, but he is not. All work and no play. Well, I thought he was dull until I read this book. He is like any other guy. He really cares about Morgan, and is not in love with his job. He thinks about things that I thought didn't even come across his mind. In this ...more

I like this book as best I think. Just because you get to know Hunter better. You learn to know Morgan from another point.

To start with Morgan the way I read about her and the way I read her book of Shadows, it seems like she is another person. Her suspicion of her missing Hunter it's quite annoying. I would do the same though and I get it too. However we don't have Muìrn betha dàns so I think or thought at that moment that she had absolutely nothing to doubt Hunter for.

I'm glad to get to know H

I'm not sure that I like the direction this series is going -- hence the ambiguous three-star rating.

The POV shift was a little odd and didn't quite work; the author seems more in tuned with Morgan's voice and character.

I'm still intrigued by the series, though, so maybe the next book will be better.

It is his job to police the magickal community and keep people from misusing their powers. For years he has believed that his parents were dead. He has just found evidence that they are alive and have been in hiding for the last ten years. This information leads him on a journey Quebec City, Canada in search of his long lost parents.

Volume molto particolare e diverso dai precedenti. Qui non abbiamo come voce narrante Morgan ma Hunter. E la storia è incentrata su lui..sul ritrovamento dei suoi genitori in Canada.

Niente proseguimento della storia principale..o forse serve per capire i successivi? Mah..speriamo. Un po' deludente.

This one was different because it was from Hunter's POV, which I thought was different. I don't really get how you can find the true name of things like Justine does, doesn't it sound really creepy? I kind of knew that one of Hunter's parents was going to be dead. It was kind of obvious. EEK! When Morgan and Hunter were going to "do it" in the beginning but then Hunter got to paranoid....I was kind of scared to read it because I thought it seemed a little graphic, but it really wasn't...LOLZ and ...more

Im erstem Moment ist es mehr als seltsam, dass eine andere Figur als Morgan die Geschichte erzählt, aber ich fand es im nächsten Moment sehr erfrischend einen Einblick in Hunters Gedanken- und Gefühlswelt zu bekommen. Die Geschichte mit seinen Eltern ist natürlich hart und es ist sehr traurig, dass er seine Mum grade so verpasst, aber ich finde seine Reaktion toll und es ist auch nachvollziehbar, dass er sich bei all den wirren Gefühlen und dem Chaos zu einem Kuss mit einer Anderen verleiten läs ...more
