This was one of the poorer stories in this series for me, and it was really weird that it was written from Hunter’s point of view rather than Morgan’s.
The storyline itself was about Hunter going off to find his parents, and he also had to deal with another witch while he was up there, but it was all pretty dull really, and I just wanted to be back following Morgan again.

If you wrote a book which included characters who speak another language, would you want to make sure the phrases you wrote were accurate?
How about if you were an editor or publisher? Would you care about accurate translations?

It was kind of a nice idea to have this book in Hunter's POV (although the Sweep series is getting progressively worse--all "tell" and no "show") but the insistence on using "french" was excruciating. Auto-translate did BETTER, actually, than the author, when I checked i

ACTUAL RATING: 2.5 Stars

It was interesting getting Hunter's point-of-view, though it threw me at first. This book was okay, but it was probably my least favorite so far. While important thing happened at times, most of it felt unnecessary and kind of dragged.

I had to update my rating for this installment of the Wicca series. I have only read Seeker once before, so my knowledge of the events that took place was particularly fuzzy. All I remembered was that it was the first book in the series to be narrated by someone other than Morgan Rowlands, this time by her boyfriend Hunter Niall. I love Hunter's character, but I also love Morgan's narration and its blend of the familiar and the unfamiliar, so for some reason I took this to mean that I did not en ...more

This one was just ok to me... it wasn't really useful to the story. I love Hunter but an entire book almost without Morgan is kinda wrong. I just need to finish this series already!

Plot

Hunter finds his father. That’s it, plus a little bit of him performing some Seeker duties. Not the most riveting plot in this series so far. Seeker feels like a book that is in between the last arc and the next arc in this series, which will surely be a giant confrontation with Amyranth. But, as it is, this book is very boring. Nothing really happens. The majority of Seeker is Hunter moaning about his obviously depressed and suicidal father. I don’t even know why Tiernan felt the need to tu

I'll admit that I had the same problem as some of the other readers did- it was a little strange to see the point of view shift from Morgan to Hunter. Part of me kept wanting to see it from Morgan's POV, although after a while I managed to get into his way of speaking & thinking.

This entry into the Sweep series has Hunter finally traveling to meet up with his parents after their abrupt departure about eleven years before. When he finally finds their home, Hunter is shocked at what he finds.

I was so much happier with this book than the previous one! The tension feels so much more different hearing it in someone else's point of view. And oh, how I love Hunter.

He seems so much more composed in Morgan's eyes. But then you hear his thought process and he's EVERYWHERE. And hilarious! The first couple scenes where he and Morgan are alone are great. You'd never guess that Hunter is dirty, male gender aside. Who knew he could make a perverted joke and be some awkward, yet passionate in his

Ok but seriously why the fuck did she suddenly change the perspective? Like she seriously couldn't come up with any other way to give us this information?
I hated the first 100 pages or so of this. It was boring and took me days to get through even though I could read these books in a day. Nothing really happens until the last third of the book.

I have enjoyed the Sweep series. Seeker was taken from Hunter's POV. This is a great insight into his character. He faces the hard decision about finding his parents. The counsel lets him know where they might be. The goodbye scene between Hunter and Morgan was a heart jerker. I really felt for Morgan, even though it was in Hunter's pov.

He travel's to Quebec, Canada to find his father. When he finds him, his idea of what he would look like and what he actually looks like is greatly different. H

I read these as a twenager and have been reading them as an adult 15 years later. I enjoy the stories. This book however, fails to convey the british accent of Hunter to the point of annoyance since it was written via his perspective. "Crikey" for instance is an Australian term. This throws me off a lot. I've also never met a british person who calls their parents "Mum and Da". In my experience they have calle them mom and dad or mother and father.

My rating for this Book is 3.7 stars.


El narrador de este libro fue exclusivamente Hunter y la entradas de cada capitulo era unas de Morgan (de su LDS) y de Justine C.

La travesia que Hunter realiza para encontrar a su familia es algo peculiar y abrumadora pues como bien dice la sinopsis descubre la cosa mas desbastadora de todas, ademas, siendo el tan joven adopta una posición paterna para su padre, pues, él no esta en sus mejores momentos y realmente no es capaz ni de sentir un atisbo de supervi

WHAT THE FRAK HUNTER??!??!?

Ok, ma crise étant passée, j'ai bien aimé ce livre, en particulier le fait que Hunter se retrouve au Québec et malgré le fait que l'auteure a voulu mettre des conversations (ou plutôt des courtes phrases) en français, elle aurait pu se faire aider de quelqu'un qui parle et écrit correctement le français.

Le dixième tome est du point de vue de Hunter, fait qui change complètement la donne puisque les autres tomes étaient du point de vue de Morgan. Ça a été un peu perturb

While this was still a good addition to the series it was a little different because it was told from Hunter's point of view and had little mention even of Morgan.
Hunter leaves Widows Vale to find his father who he has not seen since he was 8 (his father and mother left running from the dark wave). The Council has finally given him an address for him and he is looking forward to seeing both his parents. However, wehn he gets there he makes several upsetting discoveries. First, his mother died 3

This book in the series is written from Hunter's viewpoint. He's going to Canada to find his parents and Morgan can't go with him because of her school work.

Morgan wants to have sex with Hunter, but Hunter thinks it's not the best thing to do at that exact time.

Hunter finds his father living in a filthy shack. His mother is dead. His father is just a shadow of his former self.

His father has opened a hole to the world of the dead, and is allowing people in the area to talk to dead relatives. Thi

I know that I have missed one book of the series which is really annoying, but unfortunately the library does not seem to have it which really does not make sense at all, but thats the way the library works I suppose. However, it was nice to read a book based around another characters lifestyle because its nice to see something from their perspective. In many respects though, it seems that we are now onto the like side series, where we do read about the other characters lives. Hunter is an inter ...more

The book Seeker by Cate Tiernan is the ninth book to the sweep collection. Its a fiction series that is about a girl discovering she is a blood witch. In this book it switches to Hunters piont of view, were he goes to find his parents. What he finds is not what he thought it wud be. It turns out his mother is died and his fatheris good as died.

Today's review is on Seeker by: Cate Tiernan


Seeker is the 10th book in Cate Tiernan's Sweep series, and was both interesting and a bit boring.


Seeker is the first book in the series that is narrated by Hunter. In Strife, Hunter receives information leading to the location of his parents, who he hasn't seen in 11 years. In Seeker, he decides that her has to take the chance to find them. Though he asks Morgan to come with him, she is still working hard to improve her grades in school and besides th

This book broke my heart! We see the lengths that people will go for love. Seeing Hunter's father completely broken after his wife's death was devastating, and the fact that he would raise the dead just to speak to her, even after she told him it was hurting her was heartbreaking.
I'm not too sure what I thought of the storyline with Justine. Although I liked the ided of a member of the Rowanwand clan showing signs of darkness. Again it brings back to David's explanation in Awakening about the wo

It was very easy to read, but because I read book 10 without reading book 1 - through to 9 there was some backward knowledge that I was missing. This book does have a few sections which is (I think) written in french, so if you have a french dictionary handy then one particular chapter will make more sense to you than it did for me. However I understand that maybe the writer did this on purpose so the reader is felling the same frustration as the character is when he is struggling to understand ...more

The tenth book of the Sweep series is written from another perspective- Hunter's perspective. It's was quite intriguing to hear things through Hunter's insight. I found it quite entertaining to learn that Hunter isn't as sure and centered as Morgan sees him. In the previous books, Hunter is reserved and dignified, but in this book, you get to see a side of Hunter that no one else sees. It's refreshing as it's enticing. The suffering that Hunter goes through after discovering his father is heart- ...more
