Book Review: Seer’s Stone by Holly Evans

Seers Stone (Hidden Alchemy #1)Seers Stone by Holly Evans
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Great series opener

I loved this book. Normally, I’ll be in the middle of two or three books at any give time and take a few days to work through them all, but once I started reading Seer’s Stones I just kept going. It was a fast read and lots of fun. The characters are well-developed and their individual strengths and weaknesses mesh nicely to make for a good team. There’s quite a bit of humor in the book and a fair amount of talk about sex, but the few actual sex scenes that are included are quite mild.

Interestingly, there wasn’t really any kind of defined villain to the story, which is about the main characters’ attempts to obtain a valuable artifact. Others are also looking for it, of course, and the dramatic tension comes from our heroes trying to stay ahead of these various rivals. I really rather liked the idea that there wasn’t just one guy who kept throwing blocks in their way nor any grand conspiracy against them as it felt more like how a situation like this might actually play out.

This is a good start to what looks to be a really fun series.
