About the Book
Book: The Seer
Author: Erin R Howard
Genre: YA Fantasy
Release Date: February 27, 2018
Viktor has one order to follow:
Kill the girl before her eyes are opened.
For thousands of years, his job has been to torment and kill seers: humans that have the gift of seeing the spiritual realm. So it was no surprise when his brother Matthias was once again sent to stop him and protect the girl.
Now the last of the seers’ bloodline hangs in the balance, as the estranged demon and angel brothers are forced to work together to save a girl’s life and escape to the sanctuary city of Bethesda.

I loved the characters, especially Viktor. While he isn’t maybe the most likeable at first and his intentions don’t seem honorable, there is an inner battle in him that drew me to him. He is a demon, but also one who is running away from his evil life. Matthias was also a likeable character, who would do anything to protect Thea, no matter the cost. He’s a very passionate character, caring about everybody around him.
I liked Sam, but I wished I could’ve gotten to see more interaction between him and Thea. He is obviously a love interest for Thea, but we don’t get to see much between them. There were also a couple of plot holes that left me confused and minor conflicts that I felt were resolved quickly.
HOWEVER, all that being said, I still really thoroughly enjoyed this book. While minor conflicts were resolved quickly, the major conflict wasn’t, and of course it wouldn’t be. The author describes (and quite beautifully, I may add), spiritual war. While the book is fantasy, it also should remind us that there is a spiritual war going on around us, and one that we always need to be mindful of.
I had received a copy of this book as part of the Celebrate Lit Blogging Team and was required to give an honest review.
About the Author
More from Erin
If I’ve learned anything these past few months, it’s that I’m still not a fan of change. It’s always been hard for me to transition from what I know, to the unknown, and then find a new normal. Let’s be honest. Stepping out of our comfort zone isn’t supposed to be easy. It’s supposed to challenge and stretch our faith. And as a result of stepping out, we hope that we will learn and grow.
For thousands of years, Viktor has carried out his orders from Lucifer faithfully. But after a recent demotion in rank, he has grown weary of the bloodshed. His latest order is to kill Thea, a seventeen-year-old Seer before her gift manifests, and she can see into the spiritual realm. However, his estranged angel brother, Matthias, intervenes on his plans. Seeing this as his way out, Viktor proposes that in exchange for leaving Thea alive, Matthias must escort him to the sanctuary city of Bethesda. Although, getting through the portal isn’t as easy as Viktor thought, and now he has to work with Matthias to protect the very girl he was ordered to kill.
