He’s a scribe looking for answers. If only a cagey—and frustratingly attractive—singer will let him help.

Summoned to the Gulf Coast of Louisiana, Rhys of Glast, Irin archivist and scribe of Istanbul, must convince a legendary Irina singer to trust him. His success could shift the balance of power all over the Irin world and give singers an important key to their past.

4 ‘Naked Chess’ Stars.

Characters & Chemistry

Rhys of Glast, a stuffy British scholar or that is at least the impression that he wants to give. First and foremost, he is a warrior and has been fighting the Grigori for centuries. But nothing is black and white anymore not all Grigori are bad. To help the Irina that that are coming out of hiding since The Rending they will need a weapon and Rhys plans on finding it.

I adore Rhys he is one of my favourite characters in this series.
This Literary Life
Where to even begin...First off, the Irin Chronicles is one of those literary worlds that has so much history to it, just when you think you’ve got it figured out, another layer is peeled back to its complexity and you are left in awe.

When this book landed early on my kindle to be reviewed I was so excited! I was beginning to get used to how things worked in the Irin world, I was used to the historical settings of Istanbul and the great Far East. Places that you could pull from such rich history

I have been waiting for Rhys's book since first reading The Scribe, and it doesn't disappoint. The Irin world gets a little bigger with the introduction of characters from India, set against the sticky, hot New Orleans area.

Vasu lovers are also going to love this book. Lots of scenes with my favorite angel in the series.

I’d give it 10 stars if I could.

What a terrific read. EH never fails to write an awesome book. For new readers, start at the beginning and read them all. I promise you will never be disappointed.

Another magical, mythical, mesmerizing story in the Irin Chronicles world! And once again, I find myself hopelessly in love with yet another scribe (sorry, Malachi!). The Seeker opens with a decidedly more "modern" feel to it than previous books - maybe because it's set in America. I always enjoy the surreal aura surrounding these stories that's brought about in part by mythical type settings, I think. But, as always, I was soon encompassed by it all - the sights, sounds, smells, feels, touches. ...more

Rhys has been one of my favorite characters of this series. He gives off an uptight British scholar vibe, someone who always has to be right. He is loyal to both his people and those he considers family. He is willing to go above and beyond to make sure his people thrive and his loved ones stay safe. Over the series he has seen all of his brothers find mates and was starting to wonder if he would ever be granted the gift of his mate. Heck I was itching for him to find his mate, especially after ...more

Great addition to the Irin Chronicles. I love how each of the books both extends the Irin world into a new realm (in this case the US) and pairs each of the Istanbul scribes (in this case Rhys) with their mate. Loved the Louisiana setting. Loved the links to Native American history. Given the brief glimpses into Irin history through Meera's memories, I wonder if Elizabeth Hunter might consider a prequel type of novel or even set of short stories that take us back to some of those dramatic incide ...more

I was given the opportunity to read an early copy of this book and it did not disappoint. The story telling is just beautiful. We see Rhys meeting a whole new group of Irin/Irina in America. The story is beautiful, full of love - both the romance and reality and realness of love. Elizabeth Hunter‘s ability to write characters that we can immediately engage with and fall in love with or be irritated by or want to hold is never better than in this story. I have a book hangover.

Once again, Elizabeth Hunter delivers a breathtaking story with The Seeker, the 7th story in the Irin Chronicles. This is the long-awaited book for the academic British scribe Rhys of Glast.

After seeing all of his brothers get mates and find their reshon, Rhys was beginning to wonder if it would ever happen for him when he is sent to New Orleans to meet with the mysterious Irina singer Meera. The two characters are similar in their love for knowledge, their wariness of others, and the fact that

Another fantastic journey into the Irin world!! I was immediately captivated by the strong beautiful characters that Elizabeth created in Rhys and Meera, especially incredible sexy snarky banter between the two. It was so much fun learning about a new part of the Irin world with a characters that I already enjoyed from the previous books.
Elizabeth has this amazing ability to continually add worlds that she creates without them becoming absurd, repetitive or or predictable which happens with man

Spent a lovely evening with this book. You’ll want to grab a copy, clear your calendar, and dive in. While part of a series, the author gives you enough detail to follow along, even if you don’t know all the details, but when the series is as amazing as this one—start at the beginning at catch up. I love the wordy interplay of the main characters, and the uniquely intellectual perspectives they bring to light. Plenty of heat for those who wonder, and set against the Cajun world of Louisiana, you ...more

I was given the opportunity to read an advanced copy of this book and it was truly amazing! I love all Elizabeth Hunter's books but this one is something special. It just captivates and consumes you and touches something deep inside of you. There is so much history and sacrifice and beauty and devotion and this book touches on it all. It shows that there is strength in us all, we just have to reach deep and find it. This is not a book to read and put down.. will stay with you for a long tim ...more

Another Five Super Amazing Stars for Book #7 in the Irin Chronicles Series. Rhys and Meera Bai's story was perfection in every way. Starting from the locations in New Orleans or the fortress in Udaipur. I was as captivated as when I was in Istanbul with Malachi and Ava in Book 1. I loved everything about the story. Just to name a few; that Rhys and Meera Bai were "reshons", their romantic yet spirited courtship, the clashing yet complement of their powers and personality,

It feels as if I have been waiting for Rhys' book forever, and although I love every single story in this series, I have desperately wanted the tough Welsh -librarian?- to find his happiness.

Meera leads Rhys a merry dance before the two find their happily ever after, but Elizabeth Hunter does a masterful job of allowing the reader to appreciate every single nuance of the two personalities and how they were masterfully designed for each other.

There is plenty to love in this beautifully-told tale

I was lucky enough to receive an advanced copy of this book with zero expectation of a review or any feedback.

The book was fantastic. I loved everything about Rhys and Meera’s story. You become really invested in both their lives apart and what might become of them together. I also really want to visit New Orleans and see some of the things that are mentioned.

The pacing was excellent and I became so wrapped up in the journeys of all the individuals within the book. I love the way it’s all inte

I was beyond excited for this book, since I fell in love with Rhys way back in The Scribe--maybe it's the sapiosexual in me? I was not expecting to fall just as quickly in love with Meera, but I think this might be my favorite of all the Irin Chronicles. Add in a dash of Vasu and one bad-ass legendary Warrior Irina, and you've got one hell of a ride!

This book resonated even more strongly with me, I think, because Elizabeth Hunter excels at writing strong, powerful men AND women, who don't overpo

Elizabeth Hunter has given us another fantastic story in the Irin Chronicles. I love EH's books for the stories, characters, and sense of place that she evokes. This story grabbed me from the first moment and I fell in love with each of the characters, but also how they interact with each other. I didn't realize how emotionally invested I was until I was finished and felt at a loss when I couldn't spend time with Meera and Rhys, and the rest of the characters in the book.

This is a read-me-twice and ready the cold shower book! Fans of EH's Irin Chronicles series will LOVE Rhys and Meera's hot and steamy story. I think we fans have all had a not so secret crush on Rhys and have been pulling for him to find his forever love. The Seeker did not disappointed.

In addition to the slow simmer to a scorching boil of a romance, there is also a ton of new information imparted in the full Irin/Irina journey as well as a hint at things to come, so be sure to pay close attent

Things are changing in the Irin world and The Seeker is a huge step forward in a more peaceful existence for the Irin and Irina. Rhys and Meera are scholars. Both brilliant, confident, and passionate, it takes them a bit to sync up, but when they do the romance is so very dreamy (and steamy!) Neither are able to find what they seek alone, but together, and stronger, they figure out their treasure hunt. A battle of epic proportions ensues and it once again shows the grace and efficiency of Irin b ...more

This is book 7 of the Irin Chronicles. The series is about fallen angels, and their half- human offspring. There's a lot of tragedy in the history of these people but we get lighter moments and lots of love to be found. The Seeker is the tale of Irin scribe Rhys, who has been a supporting character in most of the preceding books. Maybe it's because he is English like me, or perhaps it's because he is sarcastic like me, either way I feel an affinity with him.  He travels to the U.S. on a mission ...more

Yes, it is funny.
Sarcastically so.
I have been waiting on this book for so long now because of Rhys. Rhys! I met this witty and sarcastic Irin in The Scribe and fell HARD. (Well, I fell for Elizabeth Hunter as well. I love her writing. She is my all time favorite living author.) I was so excited to read Rhys’s story, and I was not disappointed.
I love that it’s set in Louisiana. I felt transported back to my home state. And yes, with Elizabeth writi

I was given an ARC of this novel to read and to give an honest review. It is an absolutely amazing story. The latest in the series The Irin Chronicles. I highly recommend the entire series. This book focuses on Rhys and Meera, who find themselves forced to work together to solve an issue on which they have very different opinions. They irritate each other. They tantalize each other. We are observers in this sometimes awkward but satisfying dance. The author, Elizabeth Hunter, weaves rich landsca ...more

Elizabeth Hunter brilliantly continues writing these epic storylines. ‘The Seeker,’ is the seventh novel in the Irin Chronicles; Our focus is now on Rhys and Meera, and their knowledge seeking journey, in finding the Wolf. These characters are wonderfully written and beautifully paired.

Oh my goodness...still fanning myself from all the love/hate build up these two (Meera & Rhys)did in this book. The heat alone makes this a number one read in my mind, but the story was perfectly done.

Strong female characters are my thing right now. All throughout this story Meera deals with everything she does with an amazing attitude and passion. I loved her dearly for all she has on her shoulders and how she can keep so much love in her heart. And sometime doing the right thing is super

So nice to return to the Irin world! I loved the setting for this book. It was skilfully drawn by this master. It’s hard for me to write this review without spoilers. I loved it but as always I wish there was more.... more of Meera’s special gift, more of Rhys’s parents, more about the history. I know it’s not possible to squeeze everything I wanted into one book. I just can’t get enough. It’s such a wonderful and terrifying world. Pleasure to read as always.
PS. There was Vasu ... lots of Vasu..

I was blessed to receive the opportunity to read an early copy of this gem. After reading all of the Irin Chronicles books, I can say that this is the best one in my eyes by far. Rhys and Meera’s romance was lovely. The story of the Wolf is what did it for me. Hunter is a master at giving the reader something profond to reflect upon while enjoying a romance unfurl. I can’t say much more without creating spoilers, but read this!!! There you go.

I really like this series by Elizabeth Hunter and am always hungry for more from this world. I will concede that I was less connected to this pair than other pairs in past books but I still enjoyed dipping back into this world. This book would probably be somewhere in the Urban Fantasy genre but with more romance than most of those contain.

I was lucky to receive an ARC of “The Seeker” before it came out. Let me start by saying I’m a huge fan of Elizabeth Hunter’s writing, her worlds and her style of writing is amazing. The Seeker was one of her best so far. I would recommend you start with The Scribe (first book of the Irin Chronicles) since it’s an amazing book and the introduction to the Irin world.
This is Rhys’s story, not his past but his future and the future looks great. The story focuses on new characters that will weave t
