K. A. Riley
Vega Sloane and the other Seekers of the Academy for the Blood-Born have retrieved all four of the Relics of Power. Now they must defeat the Usurper Queen and her army of Weargs if they have any hope for the Otherwhere and its magical inhabitants. The final war is about to happen, but will Vega and her friends be able to overcome the dark forces that threaten to overwhelm them?
Seeker’s Prophecy has been a long time in coming – and, I’m more than happy to announce that Riley didn’t disappoint. The sixth and final instalment in the Seekers World Series is quite possibly her best book yet – and that’s saying a lot. I loved the entire saga, with the very opening of the first book hooking me with its humour, darkness and light. And to somehow bring all the threads of the six-book series to an appropriate end after years of waiting is no small accomplishment. Riley has managed to satisfy every question that had been hanging in the air succinctly, while still being able to bring about a happily ever after for most of the characters she’s lovingly created. Although, I must admit there was a tiny amount of dissatisfaction; we didn’t really get to see how the other Seekers from the previous novels had their own endings. But, that’s only a small complaint – Vega and Callum were always the stars of the Otherwhere.
Honestly, if you’re a fan of Arthurian Legends, the Seeker’s World Series is the perfect set to bring you a modern twist with the legacy. The whole series has a foot in the world of the Once and Future King with the story very much revolving around the legendary sword, sorcerers and would-be villains. It’s a refreshing take, for Merlin and Arthur himself to take a backseat in the tale, while others – such as the Lady of the Lake and Morgan LeFay take centre stage for a more starring role. Indeed, their legacies are potentially more important, with their descendants being powerful magic users in the Otherwhere.
Honestly, I can’t recommend this magical series enough. And I thank K. A. from the bottom of my heart for finally finishing Vega’s story – and for giving (almost) everyone the ending they deserve.
