"The 5th Wave" meets "The Host" in an epic new saga, SEEK.

Out of seven billion people, there’s only one thing we all have in common.
We search for what eludes us.
We evade what causes us sorrow.
We extract what doesn’t suit our needs.
And we kill to get what we want.
In the time it takes you to read this, two lives will be revoked and one spared. Some call it divine int

What a captivating read. I could not put the book down. For those of us that read fantasy books, we read them to escape our troubles and teleport into a magical land where things are well- magic.
This book did not disappoint, It had the magic, the romance, the sass, and the adventure.

Thank you for such a wonderful book, and I highly encourage others to get this book as soon as it is available.

I CAN NOT WAIT FOR THE 2nd, book to be released. Super fan here.

Of course I'm not going to give you spoilers! Go read the book!

This book is amazing! The only thing I’m asking is WHERE’S BOOK 2 - I need it!

So I needed a book from a local author for my book challenge. This book looked right up my alley, and I was not wrong. What a great premise this book has. I loved every second of it and it just kept me so enthralled throughout the whole thing. I need book 2!!!

Just finished another great summer read. Seek by Candie Leigh Campbell is a very creative fantasy based story that involves a seventeen-year-old girl who works for a top-secret government agency that is tasked with destroying Kyahl, a mystical people who appear as shadows of mist and vapor. The evil Kyahl have a face of a demon, breath like ice, and teeth as sharp as slivered razors. This scary adrenaline-pumping tale kept me on the edge of my seat as Keira armed with only a bow and a

I am always on the search for new Young Adult Fantasy series, and I love to find new authors with novels at a great price. This book was actually recommended to me by a friend, as being an interesting and enjoyable read, and while I did not find the cover to be particularly alluring (although I do love the way in which the girl’s shirt is made out of ‘secret document text’), the synopsis on the story did sound really interesting and this further compelled me to buy the book. The writing is reall ...more

Keira is a top-notch hunter working for SEEK, a covert government agency. The target…Khayal, misty shadows that are undetected by all but the trained hunters. After Keira has an accident, she is given a mission to try to sway a rogue spy to join their cause. But after meeting Jonathan, Keira is shocked to discover that everything she was taught was a lie.

This had an interesting plot with strong characters. I loved Jonathan’s personality. His carefree attitude helped to balance Keira’s brooding o

I had the pleasure of reading this book before its release and it is one I will be recommending to everyone I know. It has an engaging and very original plot with characters personable enough to pull you into their lives. "Search (SEEK Book 1)" is not quite science fiction, and although not quite a mystery or a romance, it has all of these elements, and more. It's about love, about life and a young woman finding her way after discovering much of what she believed was a lie, and then learning to ...more
