Ok. Just like pulling off a band-aid. Here we go: I started reading this book while I was on my vacation. After about a half, I simply couldn’t take it anymore, so I stopped. Then two nights ago, my conscience began to gnaw at me and I had no choice but to at least try. I admit to only skimming through the second half, mostly because I’ve read the story before. It just had a different cover and some other title.

At the beginning of the summer, Kate was in a terrible accident that killed both her

I really enjoyed this spin on angels and demons. I connected with Kate right away. Even though she’s had to deal with some hard times, like the death of her parents, she’s strong and resilient, and also cautious about the people around her. She doesn’t whine, or fall head-over-heels in love with the new, mysterious guy. In fact, she’s kind of freaked out by Patrick, and takes her time learning about him and getting to know him. I love smart girls.

I also liked that she tried to make her relations

After the accident that took her parents’ life, Kate Bennet could be never be the same girl again. It wasn’t just the emotional after effect. After her near-death experience, Kate Bennet can see auras. When she tries to tell people, nobody believes her. So she has no other choice but to keep it a secret from all except her best friend Lee. But then Patrick O’Donnel moves into her town and her school. He is not what he pretends to be and only Kate knows that because she can see the lack of his au ...more

Author interview at http://nightlyreading.wordpress.com/2...

I really enjoyed this book! The storyline is one that I have not really seen much of in the YA genre. The idea of Seers amazes me. I would love to be able to see people’s auras, all the pretty colors. I think it would be beautiful!

The characters from this book were absolutely unbelievable! I really enjoyed them all! I was not a big fan of Aaron at first, especially with how he just expected Kate to hurry up and “get over” the loss of he

Heather Frost's Seers, is the first book in what appears to be a new series if the ending is any indication. Kate Bennett is a Seer who can see people’s auras. Kate became a seer after nearly dying in a car accident that claimed the lives of her parents, and brother.

A seer like Kate lives between two separate planes of existence. Seers can discern the difference between beings like Demons and Guardians by the color of their auras. Guardians, like Patrick

The reader will first meet Patrick in the prologue and a different time period. Patrick is portrayed as the pacifier; he is brave and calm. The book then fast forwards to the present and Kate, the main character. Kate and her sisters are still grieving over the abrupt death of their parents.

Wow! Heather Frost, I'm impressed. I loved this book. I honestly had a hard time putting the book down. I loved the concept behind the Seers, Guardians, and Demons.
Kate Bennett is a great character. Pretty average, all-in-all, until the tragic accident that claimed her parents changes her life. When a person survives a horrible tragedy, they are often changed. Kate can now see auras - people's emotions surrounding them in colors. What a neat way to read what people are thinking. She tries her b

I didnt like this as much as I thought. I means yes it was good- hence the 4 star rating -however its not one I will be able to remember after another couple of reads.

It was sad, cute and romantic. Lots of action and had the whole fight between good and evil going on and the growing feelings developing between Patrick and Kate. But this was all predictable and the outcome was predictable. Good writing and concept and everything but nothing like I haven't read before.

I wanted to like this book more, but my rating had to be brought down because of the similarities between this book and Evermore (if I hadn't already read Evermore, I think I would have given this book a 4 or 4.5). It's not exactly the same by any means, but a lot of the details and/or ideas are very much like it.

Similarities include:

This is a very good book! I loved it so much. The story line was very intriguing. I loved that the Grandpa ended up being a seer too and how that was brought into play. I can't wait to start the next one in the series. I've heard it's a page turner. Great work Heather Frost!!!

My thoughts

Cover: Its not the best cover out there. But it caught my attention when I saw it on netgalley.
Update: I liked it more and more while reading ’’Seers’’. I think the pinkish comes from being with Patrick .

Book: The prologue was one of my favorite parts of this book. You get background information on the leading male, Patrick. The front that was used in the prologue was like a letter of sort. I really liked it.

The writing style was enjoyable and there are two pov but Kate narrates most

Here I am, in front of my laptop thinking: "how can I tell them all how good this book is?!" Well, I'm sure whatever I do is not going to be enough. True to be told this is not my first book with the "guardian/demon" theme but it certainly is one of the books that I enjoyed the most.

The story goes like this: Kate had suffered a lot since the death of her parents in a car crash in which she survived. After that she and her sister moved into their grandparent's house and thankfully their relations

I read the description of Seers and immediately requested it from netgalley. It has a lot of things I find interesting in it, auras, seers, guardians and was lucky to get accepted. It has taken a while to get to this but I have managed to finish it in one sitting, I didn't want to stop or put it down.

Do you know what The Vampire Academy, Possession and Seers all have in common? There's a cute girl who falls in love with the bad boy . . . who isn't quite what he seems.


Another thing they have in common? They are all in my top ten FAVE YA book series!


Now, I read a ton, ton, ton. And it's really hard to make it to my top ten. So that should tell you right there how much I absolutely LOVED Seers by Heather Frost. I had the hardest time putting my Nook down when I needed to do something important

Kate's special for all the wrong reasons. She survived a car crash that killed her parents, and she has had guilt and sadness with her ever since. The real problem though comes in a much more supernatural form. Kate can now see auras. Her world is full of rainbows of emotions. If that's not enough, her relationship with her perfect boyfriend has gone stale. When a dashing new boy joins her classes, Kate notices something different about him. More specifically, she notices something different abo ...more

Seers was a fabulous new take on paranormal YA. It is a very difficult to create an original story in a genre over-run with paranormal beings, yet the author has done just this.

Our protagonist, Kate, leads us through the story. She was a very sympathetic character and one I feel a lot of young people could identify with. Kate faces a daily struggle of keeping up appearances, making sure the mask that covers the grief she sometimes finds overbearing, doesn’t slip.

When Kate meets hot, Irish, trans

From the beginning, I was quite impressed with the writing, which is rather better than a number of YA novels, especially those in the paranormal romance genre. Given the author's youth, this is doubly impressive. There were, in the ARC at least, a few grammatical errors, which have hopefully been removed from the final version, such as a "must of" (instead of "must have" on page 250.

The plot is fairly standard YA paranormal fare. You have the beautiful girl with new powers and some sadness. Add

If the novel Seers had an aura, its color would be pink, with flecks of yellow scattered through.

Kate Bennet suffered from a life-altering summer. The car wreck that killed her parents almost took her life as well, and when she awoke from her near-death experience she began seeing funny colorful halos around people - halos Kate realized are auras depicting people's emotions. Everyone seemed to be a blend of certain colors. Everyone that was, except for the new guy Patrick, who's only color was s

I enjoyed reading this fresh take on guardians and seers. It is different from the books that I have been reading recently.

Kate is mourning for the loss of her parents in a car accident a few months prior to the start of the book. She almost lost her life as well. Her boyfriend feels that she should be over it and thinks the relationship should be where it was. Her best friend is a great bff. She is understanding and helpful. She is also so quirky that she keeps several scenes enjoyable.

To be honest, I just plain loved this book. I got it for Christmas and couldn't keep my nose out of it and yes, finished it before the day let out. This is why Seers, written by Heather Frost, is now one of my favorite books.

Plot: After Kate's parents die in a car accident with Kate inside the car, Kate becomes a Seer, one who can see people's auras. She is balanced not only on the Earthly plane but on the Demon and Guardian Planes as well. I won't tell you much more but I thought this plot was

Excellent! - Paranormal Fiction is a genre I really enjoy so I quickly volunteered for this book blog tour. I made the mistake of starting it on a Sunday afternoon, and ended up missing my "weekly nap" :O). Then I had to force myself on 2 different nights to go to bed between 1:30 am & 2:30 a.m. and was pretty "groggy" the following days, but it was worth the read and loss of sleep.

This book came recommended to me by a friend of a friend. She called it "Twilight-esque." I suppose it's a fair comparison-- immortal guardians, Demons, teenage love triangle (though not nearly as annoying as love triangles in other books), and a teenage heroine with "special" abilities. I do LOVE Twilight, but I thought this book did a great job standing on it's own. I mean yeah, it's got some common themes -- but I bet lots of other books out there have the same themes.

The book seers was a good book I guess. in the book, Kate Bennett's parents had been killed in a car wreck and she was injured , what she didn't know was that she could see other peoples emotions until she started seeing colors surrounding other people. she also didn't know that she was a seer or that guardians and demons existed. she had to learn to trust Patrick O'Donnell and get close with him all while not telling her best friend about demons, and her boyfriend about any of it.

Book Review originally published here: http://www.iheartreading.net/mini-rev...

Interesting spin on the whole angels and demons concept. Kate is an easy character to connect with. She’s strong, independent, and doesn’t give up. When a new guy shows up she doesn’t fall in love with him right away, which is a great change from the insta-love you see displayed so often in paranormal romance novels. A solid read.
