Disruptor by Arwen Elys Dayton (Seeker book 3)
SPOILER ALERT! If you haven’t read the first two books in the series, Seeker and Traveler, Stop! I don’t want to ruin the story for you.
“One house will rise.”
“Quin has spent her life as her father’s pawn. She was trained to kill and manipulated to guarantee her family’s power. And now that she’s broken free of that life, she’s found herself trapped again, hostage to a plot that has been centuries in the making.
It’s taken generations for the pieces to come together, and finally all is in place. Her best friend Shinobu’s mind has been corrupted, the Young Dread has aligned with her enemy John, and the bloodthirsty Watchers are being awakened and gathered. Now there is nothing that can stop the force of time.
But Quin will no longer be a pawn. Quin is a Seeker. She stands for light in a shadowy world. She will face the vengeance of the past and its enemies and save herself and the ones she loves, or she will die trying.” - taken from Goodreads.com
This is a series that I feel has been overlooked by most readers. Yes, the first book is slow as the author builds the world of the Seekers, outlines their history and sets the stage for the remaining two books in the trilogy. The action really picks up in book two but Disruptor is where all of the pieces fall into place. Our three main characters; Quin, John, and Shinobu, aren’t together most of the book but with the emergence of some new characters, readers will be racing towards the end to see how everything plays out. The ending of the story was not what I was expecting at all. Complete surprise. A must read for fans of action, adventure and science fiction.
