Dark Seeker

Dark Seeker - Taryn Browning My review can also be seen at my blog, The Bookaholic: http://the-bookaholic.blogspot.comDark Seeker was a fun, fast-paced action and at times, funny ride of a story. There was a nice blend of character interaction and background as well as twists and turns that held my attention throughout. While I didn’t think it was perfect, it would certainly come recommended to anyone who enjoys the paranormal fantasy genre and who is looking for a new spin on vampires and other undead beings. This was most certainly an interesting world and I found myself stuck right along with it. My biggest peeves were probably the character connections. Some were developed very well and I enjoyed reading them, but there were a few that I felt completely disconnected from or had the usual cliché and I would find myself rolling my eyes in a few spots. Of course, no offense meant. It can be a bit difficult nowadays to stay away from the clichés, I know, it’s just a matter of how they’re done. I wasn’t particularly fond of the whole “gang” show-down theme, while I know it was meant for a more humor approach sometimes but it just didn’t do it for me all that much. The romance was nicely developed and there was a bit of an obstacle tossed in that could make the reader think. What would I have done if that had been me? Would I have been as forgiving as her, no matter how reformed he was presently? Cryptic, I know, but I stay away from spoilers in the reviews. I did like Janie’s personality. She was witty and sarcastic. Oftentimes, I found myself chuckling out loud at a few of her remarks and actions.I read Dark Seeker rather quickly because once I started, it was one I couldn’t really put down. I just kept wanting to know what was going to happen next- so that’s certainly a good thing in my book. It had its cheesy moments, and despite some character disconnections, I did enjoy the whole story nonetheless. I liked the background the author put into it and the world crafted for Dark Seeker. 4 stars!
