I enjoy this series. I enjoyed the great characters and their unique gifts. The story line keeps me coming back to read the next book...and the next book. I am excited to see what is next. *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.*

In my experience, 2nd books in a series usually aren’t as good as the first one. It puzzles me because you would think that book 2 would go beyond what book 1 was. But, there are books that continue strong into book 2. Seekers in one of those books. I was actually very excited when I was presented with the opportunity to review Seekers. The world building that R.A. Denny did was beautiful and I was curious to see if she continued it in this book. She did and it made for an amazing read.

I have a soft spot for fantasy series. In book one of this saga I was thrilled by the cultural creativity, the world building, and the strong characters. This installment is no different. RA Denny comes back with the same wonderful writing and excellent storytelling.

On that note, most of Seekers is about Brina, Moshoi, and Amanki hopefully meeting up…? As much as I enjoyed this book, I’ve got to be honest, at its heart it was just a really long, three-part road trip. I’m not complaining…there w

*I received a free ARC of this book, with thanks to the author. The decision to review and my opinions are my own.*

Seekers is the second book in the Mud, Rocks and Trees series and you really need to read Refugees first, as that sets the scene and introduces the characters and plot. Seekers continues from where Refugees left off, and yes, I will warn in advance that it does end on a cliffhanger as well!

The storyline is one of distraction and delay, as the reader and characters are led away from

Last month I became completely drawn in by this world when I read book 1, Refugees.  I felt that book 1 was very much a set up for things to come and the payoff in book 2, Seekers, was definitely there!  This book felt more evenly spread over the journeys of the 3, Amanaki, Brina and Moshoi.  I really enjoyed this as I wasn't left for a long time wondering what was happening with the others as often each of their chapters end on a small cliffhanger. It also really brought home to me that no matt ...more

Seekers (Mud, Rocks, and Trees Book 2) is a great continuation to the series filled with adventure, action, and plenty of wonder.

The Good
-Interesting story
-The story under "Mud" was captivating.
-The other stories were good, but, in my opinion, it seemed the author was most excited about "Mud" or "Trees" because of how the two stories converge.
-The false idolatry imagery was interesting
- As with the first in the series, Refugees (Mud, Rocks, and Trees Book 1), Seekers had great detailed writ

I read book 2!

It's been rare lately that I've actually continued on in a series (which is totally lame), but I read and reviewed the first book in the series, and when offered the chance to do the same with the second, I found myself invested enough in the characters to want to know more.

One thing I loved about the first book was the diversity of cultures, and how they'd been applied from an anthropological standpoint. Language, community focus and values, types of homes... All of these were ex

The main characters in Seekers are all endearing, it is full of action, and there is never a dull moment. Nevertheless, it suffers just a bit from its place as the second book in a series; all the characters are in the middle of their journeys, and it ends just as they are nearing the point where their real struggles will begin.

Easy isn't always easy, actually it never is. Being very skillful isn't always all you need. And then we have choices. Choices and decisions must always be made. Sometimes choices can mean a matter of life and death. I read the first book in the series which was REFUGEES. This book, SEEKERS is the second in the series of six books. As the series begins, we follow the characters in their journeys with life and death on the table. The suspense will keep you on the edge with never knowi

After reading the first book in this series, I was excited to see where the tale would take the heroes next. This book holds even more depth and excitement than the first. Book two does start there where the first book left off, which means it is better when read as a series.

That said, there were so many more layers to this tale than in book one. The story shoots off into three different story lines, each one as interesting as the other. The switch between them was never confusing, but rather he

This is the second in the Mud, Rocks, and Trees series, young adult stories about several types of humans living on a world conflicted by xenophobia. Each species hates and/or fears each of the others. The "normal" humans want to get rid of the mud people, a species with duck-type feet ideal for living around mud and water. The mud people are afraid of the humans and really don't know what to think about those scaly rock folks--they hybernate during the hot months, curling up in a nearly impenet ...more

We continue the quest of Amanki, Brina, and Moshoi. They are all told to “Bring the seals together in Tzoladia and you will learn their secrets.” The kids are on their separate paths with friends and family but are not just going to be able to simply meet up, assemble the seals, and save the world.

Amanki is with his friend Manhera in Tzolachia during the Harvest Festival of the Berserker. He leaves to find the priest Baskrod but when he returns Manhera and his seal are gone. Moshoi is with his b

Book two in this series is just as exciting and everything I hoped it would be!

In Seekers, Amanki, Moshoi and Brina, continue on their journey to Tzoladia to unite under the guidance of their elder. Simple task right? Fate will not make this a simple journey for them as they are constantly tested with situations that make question the ideas they have grown up with and their own morals. Each character brings with them their unique upbringing and skills with the modifications that happened natural

A great series

I just finished the second installment of Mud, Rocks, and Trees and I enjoyed it. I'm enjoying the adventure of these characters I just have one criticism of this series.

My understanding is that this is supposed to be a six book series. My opinion is that I think they could have done it in three or four books. Here's why, for the past two books now we have watched our characters traveling and incurring a variety of things, which is fine and some of it is interesting,some feels like

In this second book you meet again with Baskrod, the three young people who have to fulfill the prophecy, and the cat rider. As the story continues, there is even more danger for them to face.

With Seekers, R. A. Denny has created the second book of a captivating, sometimes a little gory story with plot lines for Amanki, Moshoi, Brina, and Metlan. As the first book introduced the main characters and the circumstances pretty well, I go into the story right away, already familiar with the different

The story continues with more adventures and surprises. I got to learn a little bit more about this fantasy world but even though it's the 2nd book it feels like I am still in the early stage of the story. The characters are still trying to get to Tzolandia, they still haven't really met each other, there is still a lot that the reader doesn't know.

I am still trying to get used to this storytelling style with every chapter having a cliffhanger and each book being a continuation of the story with

Book two of the Mud, Rocks, and Trees series. I loved book one so much I had to keep going with this series. Wonderful characters, fast paced, good writing. Loads of twists and turns. This is one of my new favorite authors. There is more violence in this one, some talk of sexual contact, but no swearing. There is a Christian theme running through the storyline, but nothing preachy or cheesy. It would be a great read for non-Christians as well as believers. I give it five stars, I loved it.

Follow Amanki, Moshoi, and Brina on their individual adventures as they are each tasked with bringing an important seal to the city of Tzoladia, then attempting to find the others to bring the three seals together.

Armanki is a Webbie, Moshoi is an Armored, and Brina is a Glider, and they encounter numerous and dangerous obstacles while traveling, mainly because their worlds are so full of turmoil and evil enemies.

This book and the first book were so well written, I could see the scenes unfolding

Seekers by Denny. I received a free copy of this book and volunteered to review it. I read the first book in the series and got to know the characters. The second book carries on without a prelude but I remembered the characters whom Denny uses as their own POV. Plenty of excitement, lions roaming, mud beasts driving them out. Eventually all 3 main protagonists set out on their own journeys but when will they meet up? Not before some good deeds are done.

This was so unfair. It was a perfect follow up to the first story, continuing all the storylines and bringing so much more detail. The flow was beautiful and I really want to see where it goes from there. I don't like to give away spoilers so suffice it to say that this is a great series that is worth giving a read. ...more

At the end of the last book we left the destined few embarking on their quests, separate, and yet forever linked. Together they must save their homelands, their peoples, and continue the journey of discovering their selves. This book picks up the story right where we left off and races forwards with new energy.
If you enjoyed the first book then you will certainly enjoy this one as well. I don’t want to give any spoilers away but if you’re seeking a tale of high fantasy wi

I was asked to review this because I read the first in this series, Refugees, as part of my SPFBO 3 self-challenge.

This story picks up right where the last one left off, the three prophesized youngsters are trying to make their way to Tzoldia to fulfill their destiny. They each come from very different backgrounds with different paths to walk to get to where they need to go.

Brin was waiting for her old mentor to show up and escort her to Tzoldia, but he nevere showed up. Instead, she and a group
