2 Star #Review of Seeker (Seeker, #1) by @arwenelysdayton #Giveaway

For readers of A Game of Thrones and The Hunger Games comes an epic new series.

The night Quin Kincaid takes her Oath, she will become what she has trained to be her entire life. She will become a Seeker. This is her legacy, and it is an honor. As a Seeker, Quin will fight beside her two closest companions, Shinobu and John, to protect the weak and the wronged. Together they will stand for light in a shadowy world. And she'll be with the boy she loves--who's also her best friend.

But the night Quin takes her Oath, everything changes. Being a Seeker is not what she thought. Her family is not what she thought. Even the boy she loves is not who she thought.

And now it's too late to walk away.

  I was really hoping for something a kin to The Seeker series that is all wizards etc.  And then I seen that this was supposed to be for fans of The hunger games and The game of thrones.  So I jumped and grabbed it and started reading.  Well what I found was a book full of nearly no world building, insta-love that was horribly done, and little to no information about WHAT a Seeker really is or does.  Because, right now all I can see is that Quin goes out on her first mission, blacks out, then wakes up covered in blood, guts, and gore.  After that it seems that she is no better than a hired hit man or mercenary.  

This book lacked the proper details for mythology and back story.  So much that it really is full of holes.   

 Go Into This One Knowing 
Needs redone in my opinion But if you win the ARC I hope you have a better time with it then I did.  Use that imagination to fill those gaps.

Just for the synopsis I would say that I got a little confused. Too bad the book doesn't live up to expectations.
