Quin Kincaid has been put through years of brutal training for what she thinks is the noble purpose of becoming a revered ‘Seeker’.

Only when it’s too late does she discover she will be using her new-found knowledge and training to become an assassin. Quin's new role will take her around the globe, from a remote estate in Scotland to a bustling, futuristic Hong Kong where the past she thought she had escaped will finally catch up with her.

{My Thoughts} – I was really excited to read this book because I usually enjoy dystopian novels. I can’t honestly say this was as awesome as I believed it were going to be.

This book is written in third person and with multiple point of views. The change of so many point of views tends to leave the reader slightly lost and unsure of what it is that is unfolding within the pages of the book. The point of views are Quin, Shinobu, Maud and John.

Quin and Shinobu spend their whole lives training to become Seekers. They are told it is their birthright and what they are destined to become from little on. They spend many hours of their lives training for this, throughout their lives. John on the other end knows what a Seeker is and what he is up against, however, he doesn’t have all the know how to accomplish the goal that he is attempting to obtain on his own.

Maud is a Young Dread and she is their to make sure that justice is carried out for the Seekers. She is faster then them, more intuitive and she has better thought processing. In a sense she was trained better then the other three and Maud is not trying to become a Seeker, just trying to make sure things stay right.

This book is full of twists and turns and I do believe with some tweaking it could be a wonderful book to read. At this point however, I can’t really recommend it because it was really difficult to stay interested in it and the point of views changed so frequently that it made it difficult to keep up with what was happening.
