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.

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

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

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

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

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

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 mos

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

I really liked this one. This is the first kind of demon/guardian type book that I have read and it is very good. It was well written and thought out and leaving you wanting more. I was not able to put the book down till I had finished it. That’s how much I liked it.

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.

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. To make matter worse, Kate has discovered she might be a psychic. The only other person she entrusts with this knowledge is tough-as-nails

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

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.

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. The story obviously kept me engaged, and I liked the characters Heather developed. I especially enjoyed the comic ...more

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:

After surviving a car crash that killed her parents Kate has to face big changes in her life. Bigger than anyone could imagine or begin to understand. Since the accident Kate has been able to see Aura's, she tried to explain in hospital, but it seemed like everyone thought she was going mad. So Kate kept quiet about it, and now only her best friend knows what Kate see's. Kate had just about got used to seeing the aura's when she starts seeing people no one else can see!

Seers has is a really good paranormal read mixed with a great romance, and a some really fun characters that I enjoyed meeting. I really liked the way Heather starts off her story. The prologue is what really grabbed my attention and I wanted to know more of Patrick's story.

I liked the way Heather developed the relationship between Kate and Patrick. It felt realistic to me and it wasn't one of those insta-love ones. Don't get me wrong, they definitely were drawn to each other, and they had grea

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

Seers is about a girl named Kate who survives an accident, but her parents don't. She's left living with her grandparents (which are the cutest things EVER) and her twin sisters. But that's not all, Kate can see auras and she has a best friend who knows this secret (I don't know how I would ever bring this up to another human being). She also has a boyfriend (who I personally think is a douchebag) and she's trying her best to get her life back on track.

Seers kinda feels like de ja vu, doesn't it

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.

So how do I explain this well... lets start from the beginning right? So when I heard about this book I realized I had read something similar sometime ago, well honestly the summary was similar but that's where the similarities end.

This book was really good, I loved the prologue as we get to know Patrick before he becomes a guardian, and I think that was a really good twist.

After the prologue we jump forward in time (a longggg time) and we meet Kate who is preparing for her first day at school w
