Greetings travelers, and welcome to a new stop in the Otherworld, and perhaps our final one of the year! We’ll be introducing you to a version of our world that’s rife with magic and mystery, and perfect for the time we live in where those more contemporary stories are satisfying a lot of cravings for fantasy lovers. Read on to learn more about The Seers.
Author James Hai delivers the narrative of his debut contemporary fantasy with an artistic flair. In The Seers: The Awakening—the first of three speculative fiction romps in Hai’s upcoming calendar—the author enjoys playing with shadows and light, letting readers into the world he’s crafted in just the right ways. You can see his passion on display from cover to cover, as he spends the time to weave a version of our world that feels distinct and captivating, with characters who aren’t merely pulled out of the aether, but feel as though they are rich with wants and needs, and entire backstories beneath the surface.
Shedding light unto the darkness overpowering the globe and all its elements, the Seers face a losing battle against the Corrupts, who crave nothing but wealth, world-domination and a bleak universe of despair under their control.
Kyle Wynn, who dives deep into the distorted life of a new Seer, learns as much as he can from the last remaining Elders as well as fellow-Seers, even if it means leaving behind everything he once believed in.
While embarking on a crucial mission to keep the Corrupts at bay, the Seers try to strengthen their numbers before they come face-to-face with the Corrupts. Fearing the massive inevitable coming battle may be their very last, this immortal war threatens not only the pillars of Earth but existence in its entirety.
It’s a race against time across the globe as the Seers search of the last ancient remnants left behind by the Original Seers, that is key to humanity’s survival, as they fend-off the Corrupts lest they fall into the wrong hands.
The Seers moves forth at a steady pace, never feeling rushed, and refusing to linger too long where it would not need to. Instead, Hai finds a clever balance as with the rest of his work in placing bread crumbs that lead readers to new revelations and explosive encounters. By the end of the book, you can see that there are hints of where the story could go after its conclusion. While Hai will no doubt explore more of the world he’s built, this wonderful debut also feels like it could stand alone enough that readers should not feel they have to wait. Check out The Seers: The Awakening on Amazon today! And be sure to act quickly, because from now until the end of the year, the book is marked down on in digital format to only $0.99!
