The cover is giving me mid/late 00's YA fantasy book vibes (I wasn't a huge fan of them), but I approve of this one.

3 questionable ★★★✩✩

Yeah, sorry about that. The main reason for this mediocre rating is that this book just didn't ignite any mayor feelings. I didn't even dislike it in some way to put some venom into this review (Yes, Maggie, that's a comic-reference). I feel like there is an extra ounce of fairy dust or something missing to make this a remarkable book. Even writing this makes me feel like a lil prick.

It wasn't much of a problem that I jumped into this one without reading the sequel. I

Yeah, I'm the odd one out again with my opinion, but... what in the ever-loving world happened?
The only reason I could bring myself to round up the rating for this book to 3 stars was because of the great showdown towards the end. And the fact that the hero, Ty, eventually grew on me again after hating his guts for most of the book.

While I really liked the main protagonist, Lainey, in book one, I found it hard to do so in this one. For more than half of the time, she was a self-absorbed, angsty

I really adore the author, whom I follow on YT, and many other social channels, which is why I feel like a git saying this - but this was a really underwhelming read for me.

And I did not even have huge expectations to begin with. Because after reading the first book of this duology, I knew the story / series was more suitable for younger audiences, preferably ones who haven't read much in the genre.

But then even outside of that, I felt like Seeker on the whole was a much weaker book than Keeper.

I've been struggling to balance my reading time with other responsibilities lately; so even though I was desperate to keep reading Seeker, I knew I had to adult.

But last night . . . last night Seeker won out. I INHALED the last third of this book. xD I literally couldn't stop even if I wanted to, the pages wouldn't let me.

I don't even know where to begin! I really enjoyed Keeper and I think Seeker really showed Kim's growth as a writer. The beginning was a bit slow, but as per usual I generally

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I also had the pleasure of beta reading a draft of Seeker, but it was already a 5/5 in my eyes. With this final version completely refined, it blew me away again and remains the 5/5 I only give to books that are truly amazing and impacted me.

You guys, this book had me shook! Kim's writing style, the tension, the character development. I AM HERE FOR ALL OF THE FEELS. The prose was beautiful yet easy to read, the character arcs, consistency, dia

I was lucky enough to read a pre-published version of SEEKER and fans of KEEPER are not ready!!!!! Kim Chance does a masterful job at subverting tropes in this one, and I loved the fact that Maggie and Ty got to join Lainey with their own POVs! It’s funny, and dramatic, and chock-full of action, so I think I can confidently say that if you enjoyed KEEPER, you are going to eat SEEKER up. It’s everything that’s great about the first book, but taken to the next level—and OMG, THE ENDING! I can’t wa ...more

Seeker is the final installment in author Kim Chance's Keeper Duology. This story alternates narratives between Lainey Styles, Ty Marek, and her comic book loving adventure seeking best friend, Maggie. It has been (2) weeks since the Gathering. After being saved by the Hetaeria at the end of Keeper, Lainey is coming to terms with losing her family and learning what her mother accomplished before she was murdered. S

This was quite a fun book to read where Lainey, Maggie, and Ty made the core of the story. Lainey was the Keeper of the magic. She had to prevent Master, who had killed her family, from getting the Grimoire. Maggie was her best friend who had been bitten by a Shifter. And Ty was the one who betrayed her.

My second book by author Kim Chance, it was fun to see Lainey grow up. The initial few chapters were about her training as a witch with the leftover emotions of the first book which fueled her w

Ok I'm a little late to the party and hadn't realised this was the second book but actually there's enough here for me to have some idea what has previously happened. Lainey is struggling to come to terms with the violence and mayhem that her magic caused . She sees herself as a murderer and just cannot get over the deaths but then she doesn't have the luxury of wallowing because Lainey is the key to fulfilling all the Masters plans. Struggling to come to terms with her off the charts powers is ...more

I was lucky enough to receive an early copy of Seeker by Kim Chance. I loved Keeper so I was excited to get my hands on a copy of the sequel. In my opinion, this story was even better than the first. Kim knocked it out of the park with this one. We are back with old favorites as well as a whole cast of new friends (and enemies). We get to follow the perspectives of our three main characters Lainey, Maggie and Ty. I loved that we got

I knew starting this book that it was 2nd in the series I have not read.  I was hoping that would be ok.  I was a little lost in the beginning of this book but I felt the author tried to help let me know what I missed.  I guess I was hoping for me this book would've have grabbed me more than what it did.  I do really enjoy the character of Maggie and over all the book was good but I think I was looking for that spark to get me up to 4 and 5 star. But I would read more from this author.  I think ...more

A perfect, bittersweet conclusion to a nostalgic YA contemporary fantasy duology. Chance brought her A game with this magical instalment. It’s sure to enrapture readers throughout and provide a satisfying ending.

Seeker takes what was good about Keeper and takes it up about ten levels. Kim Chance brings us a tale with a memorable cast of characters and a plot that took me through a roller coaster ride to the end. I read this in the course of 24 hours and was satisfied and yet sad to see this series end.

The story picks up right after the end of Keeper, with Lainey, Maggie and Ty continuing their journeys. One of my biggest issues with Keeper was the plot; it was mostly paint by numbers until the last few

LOVED CHANCE'S THE KEEPER AND ALSO THIS DUOLOGY 2!! Our witch Laney has a destiny to fulfill that has left her with guilt, loyalty, and a fear that she can not achieve this before more tragedy comes to her friends.

I loved this book! It’s so hard to make a sequel be as good, or even better than the first book in a series, but Kim Chance does it with flair! One thing I was most excited about for this book was seeing Lainey come into her powers, and boy oh boy does she! An exciting finale!

This book is such a great conclusion to the duology! Such good writing and an unexpected romance that really put it over the top! Plus, the ending is perfect. I definitely recommend it.

Wow what can I say besides Kim Chance you have done it again.

First let me say I did receive an Arc of the book from NetGalley and Flux in exchange for an honest review.

For me the book started off slow and it took me a while to get into the book but once I did I couldn’t help become invested in these characters and their character arc. I loved how in this book each character had their own point of view. This way you got to see how they were each dealing with the events of the end of keeper while

Kim Chance hit it out of the ball park with this one. I don't normally find a sequel that I love just as much as-or more than-the first book, but I have to say that Seeker did all of that for me and squeezed into my faves for sure! I could definitely tell that Chance's craft was stronger in Seeker. Her prose roped me in, making me feel everything that the characters were feeling. It usually takes me a while to get into new POVs but I was immedi

Oh my lanta....

And I thought Keeper was powerful. What a gorgeous ending to a truly inspiring duology. Kim, you have such a way of writing that is both captivating and so unique. I barely ever read YA but you're making a believer out of me.

That ending...the feels!

The only complaint I have is Maggie's part. I like her as a character but I don't think she really needed to be given her own POV.

But! Whatever because I loved this book!!

There isn't really much I can say about this book to keep it non-spoilery but I will do my best. This is going to be a very short paragraph about why I loved this book so much, just without the detail 😂

This sequel was epic, and had so much crammed into it. I loved how Kim elaborated on a lot of the characters that we met in the first book, developing Lainey, Maggie and Ty equally. I also loved the new characters that were introduced. Teddy and Zia, Oliver and Ajay. They were

'Seeker' is the second and final book in the Keeper Duology, a young adult paranormal fantasy. I absolutely loved the first book in the series and I couldn't wait to see how things would play out and end in this one. I wasn't disappointed. This is one of those series that you need to read the first book before attempting to read the second one. If you don't you'll be really lost and confused and won't be able to get into the story or the characters to the level you need to in order to r

First of all: This arc of Seeker was provided to me by Net galley in exchange for an honest review. And I always promise to be honest.

It’s not everyday that the sequel to a book does better than the first. In this case Chance’s sequel Seeker outshines Keeper 10-1. I rated Keeper a 3.5 (see my review for why.) but I am giving Seeker a FULL 5 STARS! I can honestly say that it is one of my favourite books of all time now, even though I didn’t strongly love Keeper.

I received a copy of Seeker through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Seeker is the second and final novel in the Keeper Duology by Kim Chance. This concludes the tale of Lainey, Ty, and Maggie. And it’s a dramatic tale, to be sure. While this is the second novel in the series, you could easily jump in at this point if you really wanted to. Though you’ll miss out on some of the finer details on their backstory, naturally. Thankfully, Kim Chance’s recap is more comprehensive th

Seeker by Kim Chance is an enjoyable conclusion to a YA fantasy duology. In the first novel, Keeper, Lainey Styles discovers she is a witch, and her world turns upside down. The story introduces the main characters and explains the reason for the supernatural battle that is to come. In this book, Seeker, we continue with the journey. Lainey is trained on how to access, use, and control her powers and prepares for the ultimate end of the story.

What I Like:

I don’t even know where to get started with this review! But I am just going to jump right into it and see where it goes. Since this book is not released yet (September 10th, 2019!) this will be a spoiler free review!

Ever since Keeper was released last year I fell in love with the story of Lainey, Maggie and Ty. When I heard that a sequel was in the works, I KNEW I had to read it ASAP! The wait was long, but it was 110% worth it!
